We were able to sit outside on a beautiful evening. The food was great. Our server was just okay --she was busy with a table of ten --she got the job done but nothing special. It was nice the owner stopped by the table.

Had a business dinner here recently, good food, attentive service and a good selection of wines. It was an enjoyable evening, regular conversation is possible and the overall ambiance is great. Ivy is simply a restaurant that is a cut above most others in the area.

Beautiful patio for lunch on a perfect fall day. Bees did come around, but the waiter was attentive and offered to move us inside, which we chose not to do. Food was very good. The waiter was very friendly but a little slow. I will definitely go back.

The food is yummy and even better bargain at lunch. I think it is one of the nicest and yummiest restaurants in downtown Wheaton.

Decided to do something out of the ordinary last Friday after work. Kids were out with friends, so... Let's try Ivy. Earliest reservation was for 8, even though when we got there there seemed to be several tables open both inside and outside. We were early by 15 minutes but they seated us immediately in the outdoor courtyard. The setting... More

My son has worked in the fine dining industry out west for years so I thought he would like the Ivy. He did! We has the seared tuna to start. Excellent taste. Then filets with shrimp. Everyrhing was incredibly tasty and the presentation was beautiful. My son was impressed, and he rarely is! If you want something special, come here.

Reading the other reviews of Ivy, I feel like we must have missed something, possibly everything. Took the family to dinner on a sunny summer evening, sat inside for dinner and it was very dark, felt like we were in the basement. The server was awkward, the overpriced food was mediocre at best, and we will not return. .

Best Bloody Mary I've ever had, lovely outdoor area for dining, really tasty watermelon salad and very nice service. The outdoor dining is cool with plants and sailcloth awnings protecting you from the sun. They really need a first floor restroom though!

Over the years this place has gotten better. A wide variety of choices-steaks, chops, pasta,fish/seafood and ribs-all very well done and presented. Exclusive of steaks, entrees average $18-24. Sides, salads, desserts extra. Enjoyed the seafood pasta. Dessert of waffles and ice cream took me back to childhood. Ivy offers both full size and mini-but not too mini desserts. Staff was... More

You will be happy you picked this restaurant. Very professional ran with great service and food. Everyone at our table enjoyed the experience. The food was very good but not exceptional. We were with friends who have gone there for years and simply enjoy it. I had the soup of the day (chicken noodle). It was very good. The entree... More
