An LA landmark since its opening in 1983, The Ivy is the place to go for a great time in the City of Angels. From its star-studded crowd, to its jamming music, friendly wait-staff, killer cocktails and unbeatable food, this cozy, hip, neighborhood restaurant exemplifies the easy glamour and charm that California is all about.
The Ivy is great if you love seeing stars and feeling like a star....it was sooooo much fun. WE sat outside right by the picket fence ...everone is looking for stars so you are pretty much bound to see one....the food was great except the two bugs i saw in my salad. I really didnt mind since i was having such a great time. I just stopped eating the salad. The value was great too...my salad was huge my husbands pasta was huge too...overall i had so much fun and i am sure you will too....set aside a lot of time because if you want to sit outside even with reservations they will mke you wait!!
I just visited the ivy on saturday and the food was great...I was sitted on patio and it was beautiful me and my friend had such an amazing time. We did spot a celeberity, who happend to be Hiliray Duff and her sister Haylie..It was so much fun and the price was so worth it, I'm actually be there with my boyfriend this weekend....
It was my daughters birthday and they ruined the night. The waiters never had a clue about wine selection..they where very rude and unprofessional...food was average and poor value for money....the table we had was only suitable for 5 people not 8 and the light was set so low you could'nt read the menu's
They are trading on the celebs they get in dont buy into the hype you'll be disappointed.
Overall experience 'Rubbish' they could'nt wait to take your money and get you out of the door.

If you want to see celebrates this would be a great place to go, almost every time I go there I see at least one. The food is descent I wouldn’t say it was the best I have had but its pretty good. I would recommend the chop salad for lunch it huge and pretty tasty. As you might expect it’s definitely expensive and is definitely Hollywood but a great experience.
First time there, anywhere in LA period. Went there sunday around 1pm walk up no reservation and was sat almost instantly! Service was fantastic and friendly. I never had to request a single thing my water was poured for me the food was fast and tasty. oh yeah, order the mojito there one of the best trust me i'm from miami where it started. If ever in miami go to NIKKI BEACH its also where a seen and be seen crowd! anyways, loved the IVY can't wait to go back!
OMG this was my first time out to LA and so we totally had to go to The Ivy... I mean talk about a place to see and be seen! Anyway well we did not see any celebrities eating at the restaurant we did see Tori Spelling shopping on Robetson she was leavin Petit Tresour up the street. We thought the food was wonderful!!!! The staff was amazing... I brought my son with us who is 5 months old and they were very accomidating with his stroller. We sat at table 41 and had a wonderful view of the patio and the food was delicious my sister ordered a hamburger and I had the fish n chips mmm mmm!! I cant wait to go back!! EVERYONE who says they are rude there is CRAZY!!! They were so nice to the both of us and yes the food is a little pricey but who cares its LA u go for the experience and I WOULD GO AGAIN!!
Unless you see the star,this place is just average

My husband and I went to Ivy's last April and the place was nothing special. Food is tasty, but the place is extremely small. People make bigger deal out of it than it really is. Service is very good, but be ready to pay a higher price for small portions. There are better places to try while dinning in Los Angeles.
The Ivy exemplifies the worst of L A. Go if you want to spot a star chewing salad, but if you're not a celebrity, expect a rude, insulting attitude at reception, possibly even having your reservation not honored, and you will get extremely ordinary food at outrageous prices. This has been my consistent experience at this place, I can finally say I will never go back.
Here you will find young actors, hipsters and other famous folks. The restaurant features comfortable booths and simple American food.
The meatloaf is a favorite, and hard pressed to be beaten anywhere in town. Don't look for anything too ...
