“Charming place for a bridal shower”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

I attended a small bridal shower here and loved the vintage charm. It looked as if you were stepping into someone's home, and the food was very well prepared and upscale. We had an entire room to ourselves for the event and waitstaff was friendly. It has a very cozy feel and I'm sure this would be a great place for a date night dinner.

“Wonderful intimate dining experience”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Excellent place to celebrate a special occasion. Fabulous food and impeccable service. It could get noisy if it was full. We were there on a Sunday for an early dinner. Proximity to UVA a plus.

“Excellent Service and Food”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

My husband and I visited this restaurant for an anniversary dinner. We always do upscale restaurants for anniversary dinner and this one did not dissapoint. We were presented a personalized menu wishing us happy anniversary when we were seated. The menu offered a variety of types of dishes. The staff was knowledgeable and kind and made excellent reccommendations throuhout the meal. The staff also did a good job of meeting our needs during the meal without interrupting our conversations. The presentation of each dish was lovely. A few surprises from the chef throughout the evening made the experience even better.

We were most impressed by the taste of each item we ordered. The flavors were amazing and the chef does a great job of connecting flavors that work well together. We've been to several highly acclaimed upscale restaurants, and The Ivy Inn was right up there with the best of them. With that, the prices were less than expected. Well worth the visit if you are in the area!

“Pleasantly Suprised”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

What an excellent little restaurant!
Service was attentive without being overbearing, and never once was I looking for a waiter...they always managed to be at the table at just the right time.
Food was outstanding. The salmon was cooked perfectly (the way I asked), and properly seasoned. The chicken was seasoned in a way we had not tasted before, and was very good.
Food presentation was also creative and interesting.
The desserts were amazing, in particular the sticky toffee pudding, and a braised apple dish that I can't remember the name of.

Reviewed September 22, 2012

The food and service @ the Ivy Inn Restaurant could not have been better. We were very impressed w/the menu offerings and appreciated the personal message printed on our menu - the personal touch that creates a special memory. Wonderful local fare and innovative dishes - would definitely recommend.
