“It's not your dinnerparty, but theirs....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Food was very nice to excellent, but all this was overshadowed by the fact that staff thinks it's their evening and not yours. We actually saved money for this (terribly expensive!) to have the 11-course tasting menu to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary, but were very sorry that we spent it here.

“Outstanding new world combinations in sublime avant garde style brought by a passionate team!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013 via mobile

Be ready to be surprised. We had a business diner and ordered the 5 course 'tasting'. Outstanding presentation, passionate staff. Very original choice of ingredients and cobinations. Cauliflower in ways you wouldn't expect, etc. Very nice culinairy experience in a special environment! I will certainly go back and clearly recommend this place! (thank you John and Rocco!)

“An experience you won't forget”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Francois Geurds and his team know what makes a good restaurant an excellent restaurant. Everything is perfect, from the design of the place to the star awarded food. Great service, nice folks. Been here a number of times, not cheap, but worth every penny.

“Forget the rest, IVY is the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

What a sensation of flavors and incredible combinations. The amuses and ingredients, the one even better than the other. Especially the amuse with onion was phenomenal. The operation is smooth with black gloves and clothing. The open kitchen is amazing where the chef is busy with the cooking. Every guest is greeted by the chef. An unforgettable evening out eating!!
