Thanksgiving Dinner Special Menus & Offers
We will be serving a Traditional Thanksgiving Feast. Five Courses. Seated and served. Indoor and Patio seating available with tables 6 ft apart.
My second time here. They printed a cute special menu for my mom’s 55th birthday. Our service was wonderful and the tables were very spaced out. There are also heaters on the patio so we stayed at a comfortable temperature all evening. The food was delicious.
The sticky toffee pudding was a must, absolutely delicious!
Outstanding, best meal I’ve had in a long time. Highly recommend the pork.
Lovely dinner and we felt very comfortable with all the precautions the Ivy took for their diners. Food was delicious and the staff was very pleasant..
Great food! Service a little slow. One girl for 6 tables.
Consistency and quality of food is always good. The menu has great variety for all diets. The service staff is great and friendly. Always a hit when we go.
The food and service at the Ivy Inn is always something special! It is our go to restaurant when we want a special meal. Outdoor dining was great too!
Wonderful food and staff was knowledgeable about the food
Staff was friendly and attentive, and safe. Food was phenomenal, as always.
Superb food, outstanding service and overall a very enjoyable evening.
The food was excellent, but the tables were too close together and without barriers to protect sufficiently against Covid-19 spread among guests.
Great place to eat in Charlottesville!! The food and waiter were outstanding.
It was amazing, from service to food. Everything was delicious.
Just a wonderful dinner — outstanding service, and delicious and elegantly presented food, while also maintaining good safety standards.
Delightful dining area, delicious food and impeccable service.
The food, service and ambiance were phenomenal. Our waiter brought us champagne for my husband's birthday without us asking which was a very nice surprise. Additionally we decided to share the pork belly appetizer and the chef actually split it onto 2 plates for us. Our appetizer, entrees and desserts were all beyond amazing. But the pork belly appetizer was definitely my favorite part of the night. SO good!
Food was amazing. Service even better!
Service & food, fantastic! I will go to Ivy every time i come to Charlottesville, for sure!
Beautiful restaurant - dog friendly on covered patio but call ahead! Accommodated dietary restrictions and every course we had was delicious.
We enjoy our celebrating our annual anniversary dinner.
My husband and I went to dinner and had a wonderful time. The food and atmosphere were five stars! We can't wait to go back.
The service was great the food was very good
we had a great dinner
We sat out on the patio it was a bit chilly
next time would like to be inside a little more Atmosphere but totally enjoyed our evening and would go back again
The food and service was great. My son declared the food and desert the highlight of our whole weekend. Lol. I think the internal decor is really outdated and could use an overhaul. But overall was great
The food was excellent. It is our favorite restaurant and we go there for every big celebration. Thank you To Chef V and All of his staff.
I made the mistake of not asking for seating downstairs. It is rather difficult for me to maneuver the flight of stairs to the second floor. I had knee and hip surgery and have trouble coming down stairs. I would strongly recommend adding another handrail to the lonely one. It would provide more security to your customers.
Also, our waiter Robert was awesome in all ways...
Great food at fair prices... Only recommendation would be a small house salad that comes with your dinner... The selection of appetizers and main entries are very good...Not to mention the well rounded and delicious selection for desserts.

PS: Plan to return in the near future and will ask for downstairs.
Wonderful experience. One of the best restaurants on the East Coast hands down. The food was decadent and the service was on point! The little touches made all the difference!
We were celebrating my husband's birthday -- the Ivy Inn is our go-to place for special dinners, but we are going more often because it is so divine! The food is exceptional and the service matches the food -- exceptional.
We visited the Ivy Inn for our wedding anniversary. It was a wonderful experience! The food was deliciously and nicely presented, and the ambience was perfect! Our server, Theresa, was the best! We will definitely return soon!
Excellent meal! Shrimp and grits was absolutely best I have had. Steak and crab cakes and the deserts were excellent.
Lamb chops had a strange tomato type of sauce which was not good. Trout was good. Bread really good. Lightning too dim.
The BEST place to eat in Charlottesville! We were celebrating our anniversary and they greeted us with glasses of champagne and a special card. The wine list is extensive and appropriately priced. Appropriate measures were taken with distancing during this Covid pandemic time. The food was perfectly prepared (green salad with beets and feta, lamb chops, tenderloin and creme brûlée) and well presented.
Superb meal and service, excellent respect for social distancing throughout. Consistently high quality.
My favorite meal I’ve had in Charlottesville. Absolutely delicious food and wonderful service. I marked a 4 for ambiance only because the location of our table was far from lighting so it got a tiny bit dark at the end of our meal.
Everything was top notch. We were greeted quickly and with a friendly smile. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly also. As it was our anniversary, we were given a complimentary champagne toast as well as special menus wishing us Happy Anniversary. The menu was varied , but not too overwhelming. Everything we had was excellent and each course was served with sufficient time to enjoy them. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and we will definitely return soon!!
We enjoyed our evening. The service (Simon) was great - so helpful and the food was delicious. We will definitely be back!
Excellent food. Local sources.
Will be back again.
We had such a wonderful experience here post covid opening. Everything was clean and very socially distanced. Food was AMAZING! A must go to in Charlottesville!
Fine. Meal and ambiance
Wonderful meal - She Crab soup and the tenderloin were outstanding. Service was well timed and non intrusive and she gave excellent recommendations.
Food is inventive and delicous; the service is excellent. (Thank you, Simon)
