I was very much looking forward to my Valentine's dinner with my boyfriend at Ivan's. The menu, service and management over delivered an AMAZING experience. The wine selections were excellent and the seared tuna knocked my socks off.

Anything but fine dining. Our group waited nearly one hour and 45 minutes for our main course. Once the course arrived, the sides were cold. After asking three times to speak to the owner, I was finally directed to the bar where he was bartending for the evening. In the rudest way possible, he degraded me as a human, questioned... More

My husband and I went here last year for our anniversary dinner and I very disappointed. It was a week night and they weren't busy at all and felt we should have gotten better service than we got. It's pricey and the food was not that good. We could have gone somewhere else and gotten better food for less and... More

We eat here a couple of times a year and it's always a great experience. Most recently for a family get together.

This is a very upscale nice place to eat and has a wonderful wine selection. It has special hours so it's best to make a reservation or call ahead.

I read a few of the negative reviews and had to take the time to write a REAL review. My husband and I absolutely love this restaurant for many reasons. First and foremost, the service is outstanding. We've had Sarah as our waitress several times and as a Regional Manager myself, I can assure you this customer service is second... More

There is a reason this restaurant has endured so many years. Its just a great place to eat. It has a welcoming atmosphere and wonderful meat dishes. Best duck in three states. A little bit out of the way but with GPS, who cares? A truly fine place.

What I like about Ivan's is that every entree includes a salad and bread plus a side like a baked potato. One nice price. And the salad is always crisp and cold with one slice of red onion on top and homemade salad dressing. Of course the entrees are nummy. Ribs are always tender, steaks are phenomenal and if you...

It's been awhile since I have been to Ivans because the service is so poor and the last time that we went we the manager and wait staff had a very poor attitude. The wait is long even when you do have reservations. I hate that because they really do have great steaks.
