Have been here twice for lunch. Both times the food was great, and so was the service. The 4oz filet was a big hit with two of the diners. Lobster mac and cheese was light and tasty. Quiet enough for a business lunch and yummy for ladies who lunch.

I have been to Ivy twice for dinner and twice for lunch. Each time the food has been very good featuring standard American entrees along with a few daily specials. The interior is very welcoming with high ceilings and interesting architectural design. There is also an outdoor patio which is slightly secluded and sheltered from street noise. Will come back...

We decided to try this place for a Saturday lunch and we're glad we did. It was a beautiful day so we sat on the outside patio which is tucked between 2 buildings so it sits back from the sidewalk and street noise. Inside the restaurant was very nice also - pretty with great architecture. The menu offers a good... More

Three couples got together to share an evening and a meal. The owner stopped by to recognize us as the "party" table and we learned about the history of the building and the restaurant. I started my meal with the Almond French Encrusted Brie. The include artisan bread (toasted hard), blueberries and baby greens. It was very nice and big... More

I was nervous coming here for lunch in the middle of a work day but service was quick and friendly. I ate outside on the patio and it couldn't have been lovelier. Salads are great here but a little heavy on the dressing and a little pricey for an average lunch ($13-$15 for salad), though portions would nice sized.

Went to a wedding dinner upstairs at the Ivy. Nice atmosphere. Had a bathroom on the second floor as well. Appetizers were good. Entrees, very good. Had two petit fillets on breaded tomatoes with béarnaise sauce. Fresh asparagus and mashed potatoes. The meal was extremely good and as a guest, would definitely recommend others to have functions there.

While the weather could not have been better for afternoon dining outside at Ivy, the parmesan encrusted salmon made the experience outstanding. The crab cakes were filled with lump crab. Both meals were delicious. Also, I took a group of people to Ivy for Thanksgiving. Traditional turkey and all trimmings, including dessert, beside a lovely fireplace in a beautiful setting,... More

First, let me start out by saying that we've been to Ivy several times before and have generally enjoyed dining there. Last night, however, I don't feel they delivered their typical high quality food and service. The food preparation was inconsistent (steaks ordered medium came out medium rare and the vegetables were undercooked). We also had to send a glass... More

Went for dinner after work on Tuesday night. turns out it was half price bottles of wine night..... an exceptional deal. Waitress was personable and attentive. Interesting building, neat atmosphere. Good appetizers. Main was cioppino ..... overdone, dry, disappointing.

We have been here a few times and continuously impressed. Great service, food, and drink options. Fun to dine in the restaurant, have drinks and appetizer on the patio, or just pull up to the bar for a cocktail. Highly recommended!
