Great visit to this little hideaway. Bartender was awesome. Was there for a special event and had a yummy buffet style brunch!

Went for a drink with a friend on a Sunday night and the bartender wasn't very friendly. Ordered well whiskey and paid $4, but found a sign in the bathroom that advertised Jameson Whiskey for $3.75. The drinks were poured sufficiently but he was too busy conversing and visiting with friends at the bar. Our drinks were empty and sat... More

As, I may say: When I was speaking with Mr .Edison , he thought he was the cats pajamas, However, Mr. Tesla had a different idea; and in -the- mean time I have to find a great place to have lunch and or dinner! If you want to spend your money to go out of town places then do! Or... More

Terrific menu. Great service and waiter. Highly recommend. Having just moved to the city, this was a convenient location and the food and service were excellent.

I have been a regular since before the previous owners. They took a good place and made it better. New owner ad of April is taking a great place and destroying it. Wants to put windows in. I love the quaint ambience which that will destroy. We go every Monday for Surf and Turf. Employees couldn't get along with Danny,... More

I was curious why the parking lot, normally full, was empty! New owners, ok! New menu, great and needed New pricing, Nope, not good and no longer a value or in line with its customer base. I am not cheap but a hamburger for $9.29 is unreasonable. Combine that with an old, tired and stale lettuce salad mix and this... More

Living in the neighborhood, Ivy's is one of my go to spots for a quick meal with friends, or a late night dessert (still). The place is really two rooms; the bar, and the dining room. The bar is usually fairly busy, but unless its during the dinner rush, the dining room usually has a decent amount of tables open.... More

Just moved to Mass Ave area, and wanted to give this local place a try, since we live 2 blocks away, and eat out a lot. Ambiance and service fantastic! Food, terrible. Ordered buffalo chicken dip, used canned cheese and maybe some canned chicken. No buffalo flavor. Wings: the most heavily deep fried breading I have had in years. Shameful,... More
