It really was a great time. Four of us (without cameras and pens) showed up for dinner. We were seated inside in a very charming and quiet room. The service was completely professional and everything was served promptly. Large portions of well cooked and presented food arrived quickly. Since my background is New York City, Boston and now San Francisco I'm not a novice to great restaurants. This was really a pleasure. For those of you who are disappointed with Ivy you are likely unfamiliar with this type of place. Relax, enjoy the food, the ambience (I could actually hear my dinner companions talk) and treat the hard working staff with smiles and thank-yous.
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!
I travel to LA frequently, the Ivy seems to be Sharon Stones favorite restaurant. As a photo professional I see pictures of her going to the Ivy mostly.
I do like the location, Robertson is a cool street and close to the gay area. The restaurant has a European feel from the outside, I guess that makes it special to Americans celebs.
Parking is horrible, but where not in LA nowadays.
They are very overpriced for average food, ie, fish and chips for $20+...and I've had better at Long John Silvers!
The ambiance is that of a quaint diner. If you sit outside, wear your Hollywood face to be seen by the passers by who are looking for celebs. There are many paparazzi across the street.
The waitresses are wonderful, however the dude who brought our food to the table had me reach across to get my plate. What's up with that?
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 ...
