We enjoyed outside dining. Everything was great!
Meal was delicious and the service was excellent. Recommend this restaurant for your special events and an enjoyable quality experience.
This was to take a second! I’ve spent way more with just minimal review, and I really dislike being asked to review anything, especially a popular and successful restaurant.
Great patio. Attentive service. Excellent lunch. One of the best restaurants in Western suburbs.
I love Ivy’s! My boss introduced me to this favorite place.
Have been to IVY several times and always have a delicious, well prepared dinner. Our server was delightful and allowed us to paced our dinner. Since it was a Sunday, there were several empty tables and the noise level was not an issue. Would definitely recommend.
Great date night! We like an early dinner on Saturday and had a fabulous time at Ivy. Ordered the cheese platter, salmon and filet. All were served in a timely manner, steak and salmon was perfectly done to order. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Since still early, the noise level was perfect for us.
We moved to the Chicago area a year ago; so love trying out venues in the area. This was a great find.
No! Not a positive experience at all. Service was lower than poor. Server was inattentive and rude. Knew very well we were unhappy with our meal and chose to ignore us. No bread served, no refills on water or drinks. Food cold, ribs piled on top of French fries, beet salad made ahead of time as beets bled into goat cheese. Dining room empty as employees yelled across room to each other, noise from kitchen constant with talking and someone singing. Drove out to area specifically based on reviews for restaurant. Cannot understand how they got so many good reviews. Will not return nor recommend it. Two salads, two entrees, two glasses of wine and ice tea=$91.00 without tip. Think it's a bit pricey for a bad meal/experience.
Sitting on the shady patio on a summer day, lingering over a delicious meal is the perfect way to spend a summer day or evening.
Excellent food! A group of 4 all had different choices and all raved about their food. The waiter was excellent. It was a little noisy but we were there during prime dining hour. The building was beautifully renovated. Worth going to Ivy just to look at.
IVY is a great little place to sit on the patio and enjoy live music or to go into the lounge or main dining area. We had the walleye which was very good and the chicken parmesan which was very different. It was dry and did not have a very flavorful sauce as usually prepared. The salads were chilled and crisp. The city is doing some road work do park in the free garage behind the restaurant. If you are disabled they offer free valet parking.
We always enjoy our dinners at Ivy. Food and service are always great. Prime Rib was especially good.
Food was excellent, as was the service. We thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor ambience on a beautiful evening.
the patio is nice with the live music but my food was not great - the pistachio whitefish was not hot, barely warm, and the crust was soggy
Food was great. Service was nothing special. Very cool ambiance.
Great service and food. I love the salmon. Our guests really enjoyed the appetizers.
They Had a Sign for Servers Wanted in the Window
Maybe we should have canceled right then. We have been to this restaurant before and service was great. Not this time. Had apps and they forgot the soup and salad after that. Instead out came the entrees. Food was better the prior visits also. just be sure that they are not hiring before you go.
The ambiance is amazing inside and out. I believe it was an old bank, and so have very high ceiling. Inside, there is a warm light and tables are set far enough apart to feel private. Outside, the plantings and umbrellas offer everything an outdoor eating experience should have - festive and happening. The food is delicious. Everything we had was suburb. They also have a great wine menu, which is the mark of a great restaurant. And, it was packed. Says it all.
We ate outside and it was wonderful! The food is always great. Our son has celiac disease and can't have anything with gluten and the chef was attentive enough to note that the fries would not be good for him. The dinner was great! He had a hamburger without a bun and salad, and my husband and I shared the meatloaf. Very good. LOVE IVY.
Food was not that well seasoned or cooked and with that it was over priced so with that I could not recommend this Restaurant.
We love Ivy. Have gone for years and celebrated many occasions, from retirement parties, to first dates, and birthday celebrations.
The service is always excellent and the food is amazing.
Sat in outside garden. Service was great.
The food was good. The service not so much. We had to ask for more bread. We had to ask for the ice to be replaced in our water after it all melted. After finishing my entree my empty plate sat in front of me for ten minutes. Finally I put it on an empty adjacent table. Then it got bused. The waiter disappeared for long periods even though the restaurant was not very busy.
Always good food and the place has ambiance. Service is excellent
I love Ivy's, I"m just not sure I would go there again for brunch. The food had been sitting for a while and it wasn't up to the quality that we normally get there. They also charged us for refills on ice tea which meant we ended up spending $28 on ice tea which seemed a bit much. But prior to this visit I would give them a 5 in all categories.
Great dinner, great service! Love Ivy!
Ivy is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is always wonderful and the service is great. It is nice that they offer gluten free options. Delicious!
Always great to go to Ivy!!
Food was excellent but the service was slow in the beginning. The server bought us a dessert for the table to make up for things. Ate outside and I would highly recommend!
Great patio, excellent menu and wine selection, well priced, excellent service!
We lived in Wheaton when Dick open the restaurant. It was a tremendous asset then and continues to be the restaurant we always come back to when visiting Wheaton
Hello, Thank you so much for taking the time to send this review. We love to see that people have a wonderful time. We hope you will continue to visit us when you are in town. Jason Sandquist
My family and I greatly enjoyed our dinner at The Ivy Restaurant. Service was prompt and attentive, the menu included enough choices for everyone, and the food was delicious. We chose to sit inside where it was quiet and cool. The table and chairs were comfortable and attractive. I will be returning with a friend in the near future.
We've had several excellent dinner experiences at Ivy in the past. This time, not so much.
Waitress seemed to forget about us, never checked back after our food arrived, seemed to be in a big hurry to get us out, even though the restaurant was not busy at all. Very frustrating, as we were celebrating a birthday and an anniversary and I wanted it to be a special evening.
Good food. Terrible service.
Bought new house.
Consistently fine food and good service. Pleasant surroundings in this former church.
Food is always good, and usually so is the service but tonight we had a young man who was very unpleasant and could have cared less about our experience.
Service and food were wonderful!!
Alway outstanding... Ever since they opened.
The first impression when walking in is terrific. It is an old chapel that is tastefully, elegantly transformed into a fine dining experience. Our server was interested in what our preferences were before even explaining the specials of the day. Excellent menu, a variety of specialty drinks and great wine list. I look forward to dining here again when we return to Wheaton.
Server was excellent. Good food. Really interesting place.
