“Love the lunch menu!”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

A friend and I stopped at 80th & Ivy for lunch, and really enjoyed their smaller lunch menu. We both had the Cajun chicken sandwich with frites. The food was great, and all of the items on the lunch menu are $12, which includes a coffee and cookies to go when you're done. I loved that touch! I'd like to go back for dinner and try something off of the bigger menu.

“Fricking awesome.”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

The food here is amazing. Can't wait to go back. The chicken sliders are things that dreams are made of. The are even better cold. Duck two way is just amazing. The Clear honey is out of this would. Happy hour with 3 listed appies for $15 is a great deal. We will be back.

“a nice lunch on the patio”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

I have to agree with some of the other comments re the service. I walked into the restaurant, looked around for a minute -- finally sat down -- and watched 4 or 5 employees walk by and around me before someone finally said 'do you need something'. I should comment that the restaurant was empty and there were only 2 tables of people on the patio. Not the best way to start the experience.

I then decided to seat myself outside in the hopes that the waitress out there would acknowledge me and bring a menu. This was a much better choice. The waitress on the patio was friendly and offered both wine and food suggestions.

We tried the short rib sandwich with fries and the tuna sandwich with salad. Both were very tasty and fresh. The short rib had mushrooms and onions piled on top - which added nicely to the open face sandwich. I was told the tuna was good.

I might try 80th & Ivy again -- but would really hope that management would improve on the customer service. It is not very inviting to show up and be ignored for 5 minutes!

“Food ok, spotty service”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Went for brunch with a group of 6. Seems that I was sititng in the wrong chair. Fly in the water, fly in the juice, no towels in the washroom...food was cold, sent it back and it came back cold again. Forgot part of the order for 3 others. Details, details, details. This could be a great restaurant as the atmosphere is inviting and friendsly but unless they train the staff, it's doomed to fail once the newness of bloom is off the rose.

“Decent, but overpriced and unoriginal.”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Went here for dinner in March 2013 with colleagues. We had a few appetisers, a couple of drinks, and dinner. The food was decent, though overpriced, and the drinks were pricey too. This is a decent restaurant, but nothing special. There are better and more affordable options along 17th Avenue....
