Beautiful atmosphere, comfortable indoor or patio dining. You'll probably see a celeb dining here.
You go for the crowd not for the food. This is a seen and be seen kind of place. Lovely alfresco dining, great people watching.
Some of the best celebrity spotting in LA happens on the white-picket fenced patio of this Robertson haunt. Lunch is your best bet. Arrive early to score a good seat. Food is secondary to the see and be seen vibe. Crab cakes are good, as are the $30 salads and tasty gimlets.
Terrible service. They served us food that triggered an allergy even though we warned them before. We found out they lied about the contents once we left and called to "ask again". Before we left the owner came to our table and said "we don't wanna serve people like you!" I was a patron of this restaurant for over 10 years. I will never go there again. The name of the man was Richard Irving and he is the owner.
CHECK YOUR CREDIT CARD STATEMENT!!
The food at The Ivy was good, not amazing, but good. It was incredibly overpriced and no celebrities were anywhere to be seen (just saying so you don't expect it).
My score would've been at least 3 stars if a fraudulent $60 tip was not added to my less than $60 bill. The tip that we wrote in was $9 so there is no way that this was a simple mistake. SHADY! I guess they don't pay their employees well enough even after gouging customers with outrageous prices for average food.
Great service! – Service, food, location... all perfect!
Great Desserts! – Loved the wine & adore the dessert their.
impressive atmosphere, but food is ok – If you want to go somewhere that is celebrity struck with paparazzi hanging out, then this is the place.
If you are looking for a place with good food, this is not the best pick. The food here is ok.
The other bad side to it is unless you are a “somebody”, people here are a little snotty to the average customer.
Come here to impress your guest! – The Ivy is a landmark. It is also pricey so a place not many of us can go to regularly. That being said the reputation and ambiance make it the ideal restaurant to take a visitor you want to impress. Women love the large salads and men can enjoy the variety of meat and fish dishes. Obviously, patio seating is preferable!
The best! – Amazing food across the board. Outstanding quality. The service could be more attentive and the hostess should loose her arrogant attitude.
The place is pricey but absolutely worth spending the money.
When in LA drop by – What is Los Angeles without a trip to the IVY.. If you have never been, it's a place to head to lunch so you can see all the celebs who are looking to be seen! The food is very good, especially the Swordfish Taco.. (to die for) . The vibe, exactly what you expect, photographers stationed across the street waiting for a picture - overall a nice place to sit and take in the sights!!
Expensive but fun. Wave at the TMZ buses as they go by. – Nice staff, nice food,great Gimlets. Over priced but you knew that when you walked in!
Great Dinner – First trip to The Ivy, and we we very impressed. We had 7pm reservation, got there a little late, and were seated immediately on the patio. The restaurant was full, but did not have a crowded feel. The Service was quick and friendly the ambiance was perfect, sure there is a little street noise, but that is to be expected when you are sitting on a patio next to the street. The food was excellent. I had the swordfish tacos, they have a little kick and were very good. My wife had pasta and raved at the freshness. Overall a very good experience, in a quaint setting.
