“Apparent star spotting hot spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Iv'e been too Ivy many times now on visits to LA and am yet to spot any star, i guess i'm either not looking hard enough or don't know who to look for?? Thankfully the food is reasonable at a reasonable price and the staff are very attentive. Share Ricky's signature fried chicken, too much on your own. The chopped salads are huge and delicious and the crab cakes to start are excellent. Book and ask for a curbside patio table for best star spotting vantage, despite it not working for me yet.

“OVER RATED”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

On our recent visit to Beverly Hills we decided to go to the Ivy Restaurant. Being regulars at the Ivy in London we were expecting more of the same or better but unfortunately it was nowhere near it, we found it very average.

“Charming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

I know now that this place is considered the place to "be seen" but I didn't at the time of our visit. I thought it was quaint--and found the staff very courteous. The decor was the best of all--like being in a charming European dining room. Fodd was fine but not exceptional. White picket fence and roses on the table should have been my hint that this place is for celebrities. But for me it really was the ambiance of the decor. Charming.
