With my 87 yo parents, one limited by a stroke, the staff at Ivy Inn adjusted their seating to keep us downstairs and we spent a most wonderful evening. The menu was personalized with a birthday greeting for my Mom! She had a lovely Birthday dessert plate also. But it's the service and food that was so impressive. Such wonderfully attentive servers, sensitive to my Dad impairment. The food was fabulous! Lamb done two ways was perfect. Excellent wine selections. We will be back!!

We dined at Ivy Inn for Valentine's day and had the prix fixe menu. The food was absolutely divine. We had the lamb sausage and scallops for appetizers and both were wonderful. For entrées, we tried the beef tenderloin and the Scottish salmon, which were both excellent. Then they brought out an adorable dessert trio, which was tasty as well. Overall this was nearly a perfect experience. The only aspect that was not wonderful was the service, but it was not enough to detract from our overall experience. I wholeheartedly recommend the Ivy Inn and can't wait to go back!

Food is high quality and consistent. They also allow you to bring your own wine for a $20 opening charge. We love this because we get to enjoy a great bottle of wine from our collection with their high quality menu. It is the perfect pairing for us.

The Ivy Inn was excellent.mwe are here for Valentines Day and had the four course pre fixe menu. Our appetizers of lamb sausage and pan seared scallops were great. Next they gave us salads, which were also good. Our entrees were beef with mashed potatoes that was fabulous and trout with mixed vegetables. We enjoyed both greatly. Finally, dessert was very good as well. The restaurant is on the pricy side, but it's one of the few places that is worth the price.

A blind shot that turned into a wonderful experience. The young lady that met us knew our name, the server Simon was knowledgeable and pleasant and the food, Foie, Soup, Short Ribs, Fish and cobbler were all excellent.
