Always great

The food and service is always superior. One of the best places to dine in Wheaton. The owner often walks around and greets his guests...nice touch.

We have eaten at Ivy quite a few times for lunch or dinner --- consistently excellent food and service! We also hosted an 80th birthday celebration for my mother-in-law in a private room upstairs at Ivy--- it was lovely!

A customer suggested IVY for lunch. As I have lived in this area for many years I had never heard of IVY. I looked it up on Trip Advisor and was and was pleasantly surprised with what I saw. We did lunch a few day's later and enjoyed everything. This restaurant is housed in a old updated church. (No pews... More

Originally from the area, moved to NY, much experience with th CIA. Was looking for a restaurant of solid character and service. Have now eaten here on multiple occasions and have been more than content each and every time. The food, service and prices are all well worth it. The interior makes the trip even MORE worth while.

Whether you take advantage of the charming and private patio or relax in the quaint (formerly a Catholic chapel/funeral home replete with stained glass windows, vaulted ceilings, tapestries, etc.) main dining room, you are in for a treat. Service on white linens is impeccable and unobtrusive; the owner/host stops by at least twice to insure satisfaction. The food is top... More

First time to this restaurant with my wife though we have lived in Wheaton for a while. We sat outside and it was a beautiful day, so nice. They had live music outside and the guitar player and singer was very good. I ate the half rack of ribs, very nice and not too pricey. My wife got a pasta... More

I went with my cousin for a late lunch/early dinner. The menu was varied, and I was torn by the beef tenderloin sandwich, BLT salad and BBQ ribs. Craving meat, I went with the ribs. I know there is a debate by rib fans about whether there should be a "chew" or "fall off the bone." These were fall off... More

Had dinner at Ivy's with 7 friends. The service was great. Prices were on the high side but the food was great. I had the lamb chops which were perfectly cooked. Someone else had the braised pork shanks which was huge but delicious. A really great gravy. Half price night for bottles of wine. A great deal. Also have small... More

Ate at the Ivy for two different retirement dinners about two weeks apart. Both were held in a private room which was quiet and perfect for groups of 15-20. The food is very good and the prices reasonable, but on the higher end.

Six of us went on a Saturday night. It was very busy and lively at around 7, so making a reservation is important. The food was good, but the appetizers were small in portions. The main courses were enjoyed by all. Our server seemed to struggle a bit with the pace of the meal. We struggled with the noise level... More
