Worst restaurant experience I’ve had in a long time.
No one came to get a drink order for about 15 min
Asked for a cup of ice and never got it
My food came out cold
Husband got the wrong burger
Had to ask for silverware
No one ever came back to ask if we wanted a second drink
When I asked to speak to a Manager, he came and offered excuses, but then finally just comp’d our meal.
I would never go back.

We arrived at about 3PM on a Thursday afternoon. I love that you can choose to sit either indoors or outdoors. The outdoor area looked lovely, but it was just too hot for that. We were sat in a booth that really needed the seats wiped down. At this point, i wanted to go somewhere else but my other half just wanted something to eat. We ordered our drinks, white wine and tequila rocks, and it took awhile to get them. We then ordered a half order of lamb chops and a pound of peel and eat shrimp. This restaurant does not have cocktail sauce. They serve the shrimp with 'butter'. If it were actual, real butter, it would have been OK. It's not butter. It's melted margarine and it's awful.
I'd go back to Ink N Ivy for drinks out on the patio and that's about it.

I thought I'd give this place a try while attending the Chris Brown concert last night....bad idea.

Ordered the grilled salmon and brussel sprouts along with a Poison Ivy drink....

Salmon was warm and smelled very fishy, brussel sprouts room temperature and drink really syrupy and not mixed well.

Listened to most of the concert while in the bathroom after becoming extremely ill. Although, the atmosphere was welcoming my server, Jessica wasn't very attentive and disappeared multiple times.

I wouldn't reccomend.

This restaurant probably gets most of its business due to location. Its close to the baseball and football stadiums, hotels and apartments. The food was good, we got Korean wings, edamame and wrap at the table. We liked the flavors and the quantity was good for the price. But the lack of service kind of ruined it for us, it wasn't busy and she acted like it was such a pain to come check on us. Just plain not friendly.

This place is just ok. The vibe inside is very strange. Some of the wait staff wear fishnet bathing suits while the rest dress normally. There are a few parking garages nearby if you don’t have a tall vehicle. Food is nothing spectacular. Wait time is a bit long and there weren’t many people there eating.
