Very special setting in an antique house. Professional service, exquisite food, especially the lamb which is their specialty.
Absolutely perfect in every way! Cannot wait to return and will let others know about this restaurant!!!thanks!
Always exceptional food, service, and ambience!
Superb service and food. Outstanding ambience. Highly recommended for foodies and those in search of a special venue for a special evening.
Vacation. Great food and wine!
Fantastic, authentic C'ville country flair with incredible food, great service. Only place to go in absence of Boars Head restaurant.
Matt, our waiter, took excellent care of us! Everything we ordered was wonderful, from the tomato pie appetizer to the Bison steak. Would give this place 6 stars for the food if we could. Will make a point to go there again when in the area.
The Ivy Inn maintains a relatively small menu that varies with the seasons. Nevertheless, the food is consistently well prepared, portions are reasonable, and prices are very reasonable for the quality of food provided. It remains one of my favorite in the Charlottesville area, and my absolute favorite when entertaining out of town guests.
I love going to the Ivy Inn. The food is so good, the Chef Angelo is uncompromising in quality and service. I had a three pasta plate, my mother had scallops. They made a special menu for my birthday.
The individual who was working the front desk and responsible for seating wasn't friendly and un cooperative. Further, she was inappropriately dressed for her position. We have been patronizing the restaurant for over 12 years during our visits to UVA and have always enjoyed a wonderful experience.
This is our third or fourth time to The Ivy Inn. Every visit has been consistently great. The food is outstanding, perfectly prepared. The service is attentive and friendly, but not intrusive. You can easily have a comfortable conversation without straining. The clientele tends to be a bit on the senior side, but we're approaching the senior side. All in all, I would say it is our favorite restaurant in CVille.
Had the steak tenderloin and it was tender and seasoned well. Only complaint was that the potatoes and leek dish was very salty. Other than that, it was a lovely restaurant with great ambiance and customer service.
our dinner was absolutely wonderful. It was for our 36th wedding anniversary. Attention to detail - menu with our names, sparkling wine compliments of the Inn. MALCOLM was excellent !!!. Thank you.

This is our go-to spot for special occasions. Food is always outstanding. Staff makes you feel special in just the right way. Ambiance is romantic. Simply the best.
Very disappointing. The crab cake has some unidentifiable filler that had not been cooked thoroughly. The vegtable added nothing. My guest had shrimp and grits appetiser which he enjoyed. I will not return. At 6 pm opening given the worst table in the dining room at the wall for two, while other two person couples were given a spacious table for four.
Great place for a quiet meal. Food was tasty and delivered nicely.
Nice atomosphere, tasty food, good service, mellow vibe. What’s not to like?
Fabulous and creative desserts! Absolutely delicious
This has been our favorite restaurant in C'ville for many years. We even had our daughters wedding reception there. But on Sunday night they were off their game. My wife's meal was good but my pork entree was so salty I could hardly eat it. Our waitress was OK but the rest of the staff were almost snarling. Since it was your wedding anniversary they gave us a complimentary glass of champagne. Well, one-half of a small flute. I suggest they keep the half flute in the future. I surely hope this was just an off-day and not a sign of decline.
My wife's 65th birthday! This was the place to celebrate 'that day. I recommend the down stairs dining room for a enjoyable dinner.
Excellent food, service, value, wine and ambience. Can’t ask for more.
It lives up to its billing.
Our first time at the Ivy Inn. Menu changes daily and the entrees were creative and excellent. Nicely decorated older home turned restaurant. We plan to make this a regular stop on our visits to UVA.
I took my teenage daughter out to dinner here, because she'd been away for much of the summer and we wanted to have a special evening to catch up. The food was wonderful, and the place is comfortable and quiet enough to encourage conversation (with several small dining rooms) and yet fancy enough to make my daughter feel very grown-up and special. We had a great time. We especially appreciated the local ingredients, humanely raised meat, and vegetarian options.
Solid food and service. Would go again!
My trout and my husbands pork, my mushroom appetizer and his tomato/pork were the best we’ve ever had!!
We celebrated a wedding anniversary with family and all agreed the drinks, food and service were outstanding. We've dined at the Ivy Inn many times, and it is consistently one of the two best restaurants in the Charlottesville. The servers are well informed about the menu and are always helpful and friendly.
Anyone who likes Bourbon must try the bartender's Old Fashioned--perhaps the best I've ever had!
My husband and I went to The Ivy Inn to celebrate my birthday. It was a quieter than usual Sunday night, August 12, and I think C’ville was still lying low, after an anxious weekend.
We were seated upstairs. It was nice and quiet, and the music was very enjoyable.
Since it was my birthday, we were served a complimentary glass of champagne - a very nice touch! Our server brought us an amuse bouche, which is a really nice touch. She then brought some bread to our table. Their breads are all baked in house, and they’re always excellent. These were no exception!
We ordered the She Crab Soup, which was lovely - great flavor and texture, and quite a bit of crab. I had halibut, and my husband had the trout. Both were excellent, with flavorful accompaniments.
We ordered wine by the glass. The menu is small, but they’re all very good wines.
We splurged on dessert - peach cobbler for him, profiteroles for me. Fantastic. Everything made in house by their fantastic pastry chef. And a couple of chocolate chip blondies to send us, full and happy, on our way.
Our server was excellent - and didn’t seem to mind all her trips up and downstairs- a real pro!
Ivy Inn is a tremendous value. The food and service are always great - we need to go there more often!
Service was great, food was excellent and the price was right.
An excellent use of local flavors by an obvious awesome chef and staff; quite a nice and varied wine list, too
An amazing dining experience for the entire family
What a wonderful experience. The service was excellent. We celebrated an anniversary and were treated like royalty. The food was exquisite. It was presented in such a beautiful Manner and tasted wonderful. The portions were just right. Can't wait to go back.
Wonderful experience. Food outstanding! Chef Angelo has an incredible staff!
Great overall experience.
Absolutely fantastic experience. The food was incredible and service was perfect. We were celebrating my wife's 30th birthday and they went out of their way to make it special for her. We will certainly be returning!
Fabulous food and service.
Special get together with friends. The food was outstanding. Prepared perfectly. Presentation was very appealing. Timing between courses was just right. Wonderful experience.
Our anniversary dinner at Ivy Inn was most enjoyable. The food was great and service excellent. A special small complimentary treat was offered as well. We recommend it.
We love the outdoors and love the food but the service was really subpar for the quality of the restaurant. We waited over 1 hour for our appetizers. If the waiter had admitted that there was an issue with the order, we would have been ok with it. Sadly, we were not advised of any issue with our order so we had no ideas what was going on.
Absolutely amazing, still one of the best steaks I've ever had with quality service to match.
