Judging from the range of reviews, most people seem to rave about Ivy Wild. I'm going to attempt to give as fair as a review as possible. The set up: a party of four, a early (6:00) reservation, with two "locals" and two out-of-town genuine Foodies from the DC/NYC region. To save you from reading, let me sum up… the... More

Wow! never expected to find this level of gourmet food in the middle of the woods. We had an outstanding meal and when we went back everyone ordered the same meal again. We all wanted to try something new but the previous meal was so delicious we just wanted it again.

My wife and I were part of a wedding party of 14 persons who had reservations in advance. The groom's father and brother were not able to sit at our table and they would not rearrange the set up to accommodate them. They sat by themselves. Waiters were friendly and attentive but one side of the table was mostly men... More

If you're looking for your food to "look pretty" but not be edible, this is your place!! My wife and I have traveled all of the world, and we can honestly say that we will NEVER be eating here again. It's BYOB, which is fine, but to charge an uncorking fee of $3 per person is ludicrous! If I wanted... More

We shared a daddy-daughter 19th birthday here last Saturday evening. This was my daughter's 1st birthday since moving to college and she "researched" the best place to eat in Sewanee...........what an excellent choice. The atmosphere was reminiscent of a boutique Soho, NOLO or Napa special gem. Most of the ingredients are locally produced and/or processed. The staff, without exception, is... More

We chose Ivy Wild (and chef Keri Moser) to cater our wedding reception and the groom's parents chose it for the rehearsal dinner as well. The food was tasty and beautifully presented, the wedding cake was like from a fairy tale, and the staff were very professional. We always go back.

My husband saw their article in the Tennessee co-op magazine and wanted to try it. We met 2 of our friends and my daughter and her husband there on Friday night, the 5th. The menu we saw online was not the menu for that night, this was ok. They didn't have what I wanted so I got the MIRIN GLAZED... More

The chef, Keri Moser, has received several awards and accolades for her very cosmopolitan cooking style while using farm fresh ingredients from local farms in south east TN. The portions tend to be smaller than lots of "meat and three" restaurants, but the presentation and flavor definitely makes up for that. You will savor every bite! Wonderful service! IvyWild has...

We were dropping off our daughter for college at The University of the South and wanted to have a nice dinner as a send off. Ivywild did not dissappoint! Great cheese selection and we brought some nice wines to compliment as it is BYOB. Great food (salmon is unreal) and great service. We will be back!
