    Food was fine, but the service seemed off. They need to learn the menu and be more attentive.

    Food was well prepared and the portions were a really filling. The service from the time you walked through the door, the the servers and waiter was exceptional. We sat in the outside patio and it was very comfortable. Would highly recommend Ivy at the Shore as a restaurant for a very nice afternoon or evening out.

    Our favorite server that we requested was off the night we went to celebrate our anniversary. We sat in between the bar area and main section of the restaurant. I believe the bartending staff helped us, but they seemed somewhat challenged. Initially we felt rushed, although they simply may not have wanted us to feel ignored with their constant check-ins. Finally he asked if we were ready to order, and we indicated we hadn't even ordered our cocktails yet. He quickly said "I meant your drinks". So we ordered and received them and were almost immediately asked if we wanted to order our food. Not the experience we usually have there, just felt like they were inexperienced and their sense of timing was way off. But the food is always amazing and we usually enjoy being there.

    It was great. Everyone was so pleasant and accommodating. We were the last reservation at 9pm and the chef stayed so we could have dessert after our delicious meal. This is one of the best restaurants in Santa Monica and LA!

    We were regulars at Ivy 20 years ago while we lived in LA. No change in quality of service and food, only the place has been rebuilt. It was great to be back to enjoy another superb dinner. I still love their beautiful dinnerware and the roses on the table.

    The service is spectacular. The food is disgusting and pricy. I had hair or fuzz in my coffee, multiple pieces of shell (crab and egg) in my food and overall it was very unappetizing.

    Everything was delicious and the restaurant was beautiful. If I am being nitpicky, I would like if they would have told us that a bottle of water for the table was $12. Outside of that, no complaints. I highly recommend for food and vibe.

    This was once one of the best restaurants in the world. I make a reservation for my birthday, show up, and they try to serve me pizzas, tacos, and onion rings. I will never forgive who did this to my home if Santa Monica.

    The valet parking was nice excellent, so we’re the waiters. The food was very average, the margarita had no flavor, the scampi with rice had no flavor, the cheese/spinach ravioli were flat. No - this was not the special birthday dinner we had hoped for

    Ivy has a great location and outstanding service. Very old school. The menu and the food were underwhelming thought, I can see how it is losing popularity over time to more creative menus.
