My Sister and I just held our Mother's 90th Birthday Celebration at this wonderful restaurant. We had a relatively large family gathering with guests spanning 3+ generations and everyone thought the restaurant management and staff went out of their way to make the celebration really special. We were given our own private, bright room with fireplace so we could celebrate this special occasion with some privacy. Our server was Cindy and she was wonderful and looked after our every need. From cocktails, appetizers, dinner entrees and wonderful birthday cake, everything was absolutely excellent. This was the consensus across all the age groups present and since we ordered off the regular menu, that is another vote for the general excellence of the cuisine in a very relaxed, but fine dining atmosphere. Bravo Ivy!

A great place to meet, entertain, with a great meal. The menu is varied with something for everyone - that is sure to please. The food was wonderful, and service is attentive.

You know how when you go a new place and you hope you like everything about it. Well that is what Ivy is for my wife and I. We can walk to Ivy from our home. The decor is very pretty, the main dining area is very nice, great bar, but the best part is their outdoor seating, just beautiful in the 3 seasons that you can sit outside. The service is spotty depending on who you get. The food for the most part is good. The probelm is if they make a mistake, the manager or owner acts like it the customer's fault. That is something I never understood. I get it you have your regulars, and Ivy does have those, but things happen, regulars move, have financial issues, and of course time passes. So don't alienate the "newbies". We moved into Wheaton last fall, started looking for some nice spots to become "regulars" like in our old town. We go out 3-4 a times a week. We like just about everything about Ivy except the attitude. As long as your food comes out fine, then your fine, but if something goes wrong, forget it, it's your fault, well atleast that's how we were made to feel. So good luck if you decide to venture in.

The food is very good but the noise level especially when close to capacity makes it very difficult to communicate with people at your table.
