“Very popular and interesting vibe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

This is not the typical Japan vibe, but this restaurant located in the hip area of Daikanyama shows a youthful and artsy side of Tokyo. The people watching is just as fantastic as eclectic menu. Save time to walk around the area and visit some beautiful shops. Be sure to make a reservation in advance as they are in high demand!

“Place to be seen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

The food, the location, the vibe: all excellent.

Ivy Place is a 20 minute walk from the madness of Shibuya and is a little oasis of calm in an upscale area of Tokyo.

Ivy place is a bit "sceney" i.e Lots of beautiful people with expensive hand bags and toy dogs. This is usually the sort of place i would hate but i loved it. Probably because first and foremost they serve excellent food.

I had lunch and dinner here and both times the service was exceptional.

Ivy place is well worth the effort to find. A little gem and good value for money (and next to a fantastic book shop).

“Simple and exceptional”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013 via mobile

Great area and next to possibly the best book and music shop in the world.

Cuisine is loosely Italian and notably fresh and top quality ingredients.

“Dining in Daikanyama”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Not lay is this area by far the funkiest coolest areas in Tokyo but this was a real find and I can't wait to go back.

Dark, sexy, modern and amazing. Service was great, food was delicious, choice brilliant, cocktails perfect and the reason I have since told at least 12 people to dine there.

A real hidden gem

“My new favourite restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant has become my new favourite place to hang out in Tokyo. Set in the trendy Tsutaya complex in Daikanyama Tokyo, this restaurant aims to please. Sure the waits can be long due to its popularity but they will take your name and phone number and when a table becomes open they will call you. In the meantime you can browse the books and magazines at the large Tsutaya store next door. I can't wait for the spring when it will be warmer to enjoy the Ivy Place patio. They have outdoor heaters and the patio is in use now but if it is windy you may find it a bit too cold. The menu is full of tasty foods and their popular home brews which are all very affordable considering the trendy location and decor. Highly recommended.
