Here for our anniversary, we had outstanding service and high-quality food in an intimate, "homey" but elegant atmosphere.

From start to finish, everything about the Ivy Inn was exceptional. Our server, Jenny, was genuinely interested in making our meal memorable. She suggested her recommendations for both menu selections and wine, and was a delight to talk with. Both our appetizers, the tuna tartare and sweetbreads, we made to perfection. All of our entrees were wonderfully prepared. My daughter's barbequed quail, my son-in-law's pork, and my lamb duet were all beautifully done. The sticky toffee pudding for desert was the best I have ever had. The quaint atmosphere of the inn only added to our experience. I would highly recommend the Ivy Inn Restaurant as a very special ocassion choice for dining!

This is an excellent restaurant for a special occasion dinner. The menu is not extensive, but offers a variety that will make it easy to satisfy most people, Deserts are very good and the wine list is also impressive. There are a variety of seating options in this converted house, so you will most likely end up in a room with just a few other diners. This makes for a very unique and intimate experience.

The Ivy Inn is consistently fantastic, in terms of both food and service. Our favorite place to go, for date night or family special occasions! The shrimp and grits is hard to resist, and the steak is delicious.

We came to Charlottesville for a few days, and dined here from the great recommendations of TripAdvisor and our Inn Keeper. We were not disappointed! The lamb was amazing, and some of the best I have ever had. The overall dining experience was tremendous, and we hope to return soon.
