Horrible experience. Ended up getting sick after dining at the restaurant. I called to let the management know again not to request a refund simply to make them aware of our concerns and the manger India was very disrespectful towards me and ignored all my...calls and emails. She was so unprofessional it blows my mind how they allow much mangers with very poor customer service and very ugly attitudes to manage the restaurant. It’s such a disgrace and very disgusting. If I can give her a zero on her behavior I would.More

Delicious food and fun people watching. The fried chicken was surprisingly good! Fun interior decor and clean bathrooms.

We experiment with good restaurants for breakfast. The Ivy is open at 8 but we were the only customers until we left at 9:45. They are not really set up for breakfast. It took us 15 minutes arriving at 8:15 to get a waiter. Music...was intolerable and we were told that they could do nothing because the owner controlled it from home! Food was OK not great. Just not for breakfast though listed as such. The flowers were beautiful.More

Fun atmosphere, excellent service, food was great. We had a variety of foods including tuna tartare, salads, crab salad, Brussels, pizza and ravioli. Cocktails were also wonderful, especially the Rose sangria. Offered a variety of non-alcoholic options as well.

We came for dinner and sat on the patio. From the first moment our server was absolutely amazing and really made the whole night something special, going out of her way to make our evening. This even included our own family photoshoot within the restaurant...which really is a beautiful place with fabulous decor and lots of fresh flowers. The food is first class. We had the special - a Mediterranean Branzino, the swordfish and the fried chicken. All were simply delicious. The desserts were as good and the profiteroles were utterly fantastic. Overall this is one of the highlights of our holiday win California and one of the best family meals we have ever enjoyed.More

I’ve always wanted to eat here. And after finally getting a reservation, my cousins and I had dinner here. I don’t know if I felt awkward or if I didn’t feel welcomed. But out of all the open tables we were seated, we were sat...by the wheelchair ramp. It didn’t bother me at first, but then the other tables remained available during our whole dinner. Anyways, I had the crab cakes to start. Then I had the lobster ravioli. I was never offered another Coke. The food was delicious. Service felt like we were an after thought. I noticed the other tables getting more attention. And I don’t think they were even famous—I didn’t know who there were. The valet didn’t offer any assurance when we got our ride. I’m unsure if I would come back here again. My friends all recommended this place when I would be in the area.More

We was recommended this place from someone who went a few years ago whilst in LA, But sadly it failed to live up to our expectation or the standard of other high end restaurants we have been too. It seemed once a great restaurant tucked...away in LA and decor has a charm of its own. But going by our own experience and others reviews, it’s common to get poor service. The food was nice, but nothing special to outweigh the poor quality of staff. So I wouldn’t return or recommend it, much better restaurants around.More

Extremely rude waiters. I went at 10:30 am, Tuesday, August 29th, the restaurant was empty, I ordered a water and a cappuccino and the waitress said that I had to lose more things to stay in the place. I had already gone there a few...times for lunch and dinner and the first time I went for a coffee, as it was close, I went through this situation. I asked the waiter to call the manager and he refused. I no longer recommend this place.More

I would not go back here again for another chance. Please also be careful with your bill, they really overcharge you. Drinks were horrible and were incorrect drinks. I did not make a big deal for $12 overcharge, but deducted from their tip!!! Rude service...and food is overpriced for what it tastes now. Not worth going here, just spend it somewhere nice . For 2 ppl I had spent almost $300 and no one asked me why I did not drink my cocktail or why branzino was untouched. Do not wallet park the car either here!More

My family and I decided to eat at the Ivy during dinner because of the scenic garden and the restaurant's resume. When we came to the Ivy, our first impressions were ecstatic due to the outside decor of the garden and the inside decor of...an exquisite villa in Venice, Italy. In addition, the toilets in the Ivy were clean and somewhat huge (A*). At the restaurant, we ordered burrata, crab cakes, Icelandic salmon with mashed potatoes, filet mignon with mashed potatoes, chocolate brownie with ice cream, and a hot latte. Before the appetizers came out, I had to try the complementary bread, and I loved the taste. The bread was sesame-driven and sweet enough; the salty butter extends the flavor of the already-delicious bread. Despite burrata being one of my favorite appetizers of all time, the burrata at the Ivy was definitely below my expectations. I thought the portion of the burrata was small, and the salad covered most of the plate. At least 60% of the dish should contain burrata since the cheese is the star of the meal. In addition, I did not enjoy the presence of carrots in the burrata dish because carrots and cheese are like pineapples and pizza; the ingredients do not mesh well together. Despite the flaws, the burrata and most of the components in the salad (the greens and the nuts) tasted nice. The crab cakes tasted savory and had a melt-in-your-mouth filling, with the Dijon Mustard sauce (I think) enhancing the flavor of the crab cakes. However, I think the presentation of a bowl of Dijon Mustard in the purple cabbage seems outdated and random. I recommend saucing the crab cakes instead of putting a bowl of Dijon Mustard sauce inside a purple cabbage. The Icelandic salmon was cooked decently and tasted like homemade grilled salmon from Alaska. The medium-cooked filet mignon tasted good, but maybe the steak could use a pinch of salt. The mashed potatoes were creamy and delicious, so I have no complaints regarding the side dish. The cup of the hot latte looked more like the size of a soup rather than a typical coffee cup. As a result, I could not finish the hot latte due to the humongous size of the cup. I would have given The Ivy a 3-star review...if not for the dessert. The chocolate brownie, without a doubt, was the star of this dinner experience. Chocolate brownie, ice cream, and hot fudge sauce--these components make a memorable and yummy dessert. Additionally, I am convinced this brownie dessert was the best brownie I have ever tasted! Whoever made the brownie needs to attain a raise as quickly as possible. The Ivy has a couple of bright spots, but a couple they can improve to enhance a better dining experience. I recommend high-income tourists to order food at this restaurant because of its decor, cleanliness, and most of the delicious meals.More

Not usually one to complain much less leave a review but this was a very off night at the Ivy. Service was terrible, too many revolving servers, no idea who our lead waiter was or why he wasn’t checking up on us. Drinks took forever...and arrived incorrect. No apologies or efficiency in bringing back the correct drinks. Some of our food was ok, some was awful — soft shell crabs that were supposed to be sautéed arrived deep fried and were inedible. They refused to split the gratuity-included $1000+ check onto more than 2 cards (we wanted to split on 3 cards). It was a Sat night so maybe busier than usual but come on Ivy you should be better. You go to the Ivy because you don’t want to worry about all the above nonsense, not to put up with it.More

We went to experience the Los Angeles vibe and it was very good. Good service, a lovely patio to sit on, and fun people watching (there were older teens/early twenties that were sort of awful to the waiter in a way that made it seem...like they were auditioning for a Jersey Shore spinoff). It is a bit expensive for cocktails but a nice place to sit outside and the food was better than I expected. Loved their hallmark arrangments of gorgeous cottage roses on all the tables too. The Chanel store is vacant next to them and we parked on the street as this area seems to have been hit hard by Covid/economy and lots of vacant storefronts vs luxury stores which was a bit disconcerting and so the street lacked the fun vibe of other parts of the Melrose area. (Four starts vs five as very good but not exceptional.)More
