“Great Experience”
Reviewed 2 June 2013

Had dinner at this quaint little Bistro in Downtown Daytona last evening. We decided to sit outside because it was a wonderful evening and inside was a little to noisy for what we were thinking. Had the avocado bellini with crab and the beef carpaccio apps that were killer. My wife had the pesto pasta with avocado which she would not recommend because it was dry. I had the filet which was very good. Our server Michael was attentive and funny. The only thing that they should have done was to at least offer a free desert or something when he saw that my wife had literally taken 2 bites of pasta and didnt finish the rest. We will come back, probably stick to the great apps next time.

“Incredible food, needs a little work”
Reviewed 29 May 2013 via mobile

The food is to die for and makes you want to forget the rest. We've been for brunch and dinner. Service is decent, sometimes a little bit too in your face, sometimes not enough, depends on who you get. The outside seating area is nice in the little alleyway with lights above, inside in the main room leaves you wanting more. The back room for large parties is very well done. Pricing is a little high, could probably drop a few dollars and would make it more appealing. The groupona they offer end this month which has brought in a majority of evening business--hope the place makes it for special nights out.

“Delicious”
Reviewed 24 May 2013 via mobile

This is a repeat visit and am already looking forward to the next time we eat here. We had the avocado Bellini, which was a small portion but very tasty. The grouper and scallops as a main entre were phenomenal. Our server was attentive and very helpful with our selections. I highly recommend this restaurant.

“Wonderful dining experience”
Reviewed 23 May 2013

We went because we had a group on at half price. I am so glad we went. The bisto is located just across the street from the Halifax River. We sat outside with a view of the river and some beautiful palm trees which lined the street. We all had a house salad which was simple, but delicious and ample size. Two of us had the bronzed grouper, which was as good as I have ever tasted. I switched the rice for garlic mashed potatoes and was glad that I did. The ladies had a rib eye with aparagus and the potatoes. There were many other tempting entree selections, but it would be difficult not to get the grouper again. The entrees range from $19 - $25, but the house salad was less than $5. With the group on it is a great deal. Regardless, it is a wonderful dining experience, especially when you dine outside with a moderate temperature

“Great Meal in Daytona Beach”
Reviewed 23 May 2013

We found this place when we were looking for another restaurant in the area that a friend had recommended. The menu looked interesting and the staff was friendly so we decided to try it. I had the lasagna roll dinner and my wife had a daily special, wild mushroom ravioli in gorgonzola alfredo sauce. The food and service were excellent. The dinners were beautifully plated and th food was seasoned perfectly. This was the best dinner experience we have had in Daytona Beach. We talked to some other customers who were there and they had similar comments. We will definitely go back to the Ivy Lane Bistro.
