My husband and I tend to celebrate our special life moments at The Ivy Inn. We were introduced to the lovely restaurant when he and I began dating during our college years living in Charlottesville. Fast-forward several years, Charlottesville is where he proposed, and we went to the Ivy for our celebratory engagement dinner. It was such a memorable evening! We recently returned to celebrate another special event, and we were pleasantly surprised we got the same waitress when we there during our engagement dinner. The staff is so friendly, knowledgeable, and pleasant! It has that 'family-run' feel. The menu is always exceptional. The prices are in line with the quality, preparation, and attention to detail in every plate. The menu changes constantly according to what is in season. This is the BEST place to experience Charlottesville's local produce. We thoroughly enjoyed the pumpkin-stuffed ravioli for appetizer...divine!! For entrees, I had the "rag mountain" trout with wonderful seasonal veggies like sunchokes and butternut squash. My husband had the rack of lamb with a fabulous celery root puree. They really just get everything right here...you can't go wrong. And the house (beautiful old inn painted red) has such charm...whether you eat upstairs in one of the smaller rooms or on the main floor near the fireplace, you feel cozy and comfortable, yet pampered! This is a SPECIAL place... don't hesitate to make your reservation, and enjoy!
