Californian
An LA landmark since its opening in 1983, The Ivy is the place to go for a great time in the City of Angels. From its star-studded crowd, to its jamming music, friendly wait-staff, killer cocktails and unbeatable food, this cozy, hip, neighborhood restaurant exemplifies the easy glamour and charm that California is all about.

I love the Ivy. I have been going there for years. However, even though the service and ambiance is a ten, sadly the menu choices from the past are about 1/3 of what they used to be and the portions are way smaller. If I had any comments, those would be my concern.

The food is fresh and organic. The ambiance is beautiful. The fresh flowers outside in the garden seating area are stunning. The food is pricey but well worth it. The music can be a bit loud at times for conversation - that was one of my slight criticisms. The garden table area is also a bit tight for seating.

Worth it. It is expensive, but not to the extreme. Main courses are $40-$50. Food is good, but not top-restaurant good. Ambiance is great Plenty of friendly waiters, specially the Mexicans.

Beautiful patio setting and great food, at a hefty price. The be and be seen restaurant was filled with more designed labels than I like. Although the food was great, the service was not what I expect for those prices. My husband ordered a cocktail when we ordered our food. we had to ask for it more than four times before it was finally brought (not with the appetizers but after half of the main course was eaten).

Mother’s Day with my son at the Ivy was spectacular. We were given complimentary champagne as we waited for our table. There were fresh, beautiful roses everywhere. It looked and smelled glorious. We were seated before we finished our first champagne, and our waiter was very professional and attentive. We enjoyed the scones and our breakfast was so delicious. Thank you for making our day so special.

The Ivy is a good place for a special breakfast, but the food is nothing special and of course it’s expensive. You go for the experience, not for the food.

Terrible food. Nice decor but atmosphere wise they’re desperately trying to maximize use of the space by cramming tables so close together. Definitely not worth the price for awful food. Worst lobster I’ve ever had. The staff did nothing about our terrible experience except try to argue I had a few bites of my meal... of course I did how else would I eat try it to know it was garbage.
My husband and I love trying high end places all over the world, the Ivy was one of the biggest disappointments. SKIP IT ! There are way better places in La that aren’t completely over.
