Greeted by the owner, John, and brought to an intimate, lovely dining room. Our waitress, Dominique, was extremely attentive and very friendly. Appetizers of lobster cakes and summer salad were divine. Entrees of salmon and surf and turf consisting of grass fed beef and half...More

What a wonderful place for a special meal. Michelle's is located on Main Street in the Ivy Manor B & B. The decor is beautiful Victorian, the service is impeccable and the food is outstanding. My husband wanted an entree that had just gone off...More

We enjoyed dinner here over the holiday week-end. The service by Sophia was friendly & efficient. The food was very well prepared and nicely presented, fresh seafood. The wine selection was good - we enjoyed an excellent Chardonnay. Coffee and desert outside on the patio,...More

This restaurant is very unassuming from the outside but don't let that stop you from going in. The waitstaff is very attentive and the food delicious. The owner even came to the table twice to chit chat and see if we were happy. Highly recommend.

Great food and friendly service. Has outdoor seating (which we couldn't use as it was too chilly for a Floridian couple). Priced reasonably and well prepared.

We stayed at the Ivy Manor Inn and were in the restaurant the last evening before they closed for the season. The service was wonderful, and food superb. Bravo!!!!

We did not stay at the Ivy Manor, but wish we had. The beauty of the home caught our eye as we were strolling around looking for something to eat. We stopped in for appetizers only, because our lunch had been so late that day....More

Never real crowded which is surprising because the food was delicious. We had the shrimp scampi, honestly it was much richer than I was expecting but it was very good they did not skimp on the seafood either. I would go back for sure.

Truly amazing inn, restaurant, location and service. Ivy Manor Inn and Pascone's Ristorante examplifies the flavor of Italy. The homemade meatballs and speghetti meat sauce from generations handed down to the most flavorfull marinara. A must try is one of Pascone's appetizer specialities "Italian Latkes"! The freshest of salad's particularly, the Arugular Insalate with fresh figs. The sauces are flagrant with fresh herbs and the aroma's throughout the restaurant are mouth watering. Not just pasta's, they have thought of everything. Their traditional 2 lb Maine Lobster Thermidor, "unbelievable" and the finest of Prime with the Chateau Briand For Two! Many fresh fish items along with all of the chicken entree's such as Chicken Parmiginao and Chicken Piccata! Be sure to order one of their sensational desserts, the Chocolate Bag For Two! It alone, is an experience in and by itself. Yes, Pascone's at the Ivy Manor Inn has carved it's name in Bar Harbor as "the place to dine".
