The restaurant was lovely and the staff accommodating, knowledgeable and pleasant. The food was prepared perfectly. Really a gem of a restaurant and the high point of our stay in Charlottesville
We love this place! Everything is as you would hope: the food, the service, the ambience. A lovely place for a quiet escape for a great meal!
Choice was between C&O and Ivy Inn.....chose the Ivy Inn and was very Happy! Food was phenomenal. Beef cooked perfectly!
The food was amazing, the service fantastic and the dining experience was perfect for celebrating my good friends Birthday. It will definitely be my go to spot when visiting Charlottesville!
Simon made our birthday dinner very special. Will definitely be back and will recommend to friends.
Overall, a great experience. The 4-cheese ravioli and the lamb were amazing. Our server was attentive, entertaining, and knowledgeable. We will certainly dine again.
We went on Saturday night, October 9th. Food was really good. Both of us had the rack of lamb with mashed potatoes and green beans. All were cooked perfectly. Red pepper soup was also very good. Our waiter provided great service without hovering over us. The setting in a converted old home was very relaxing. Will definitely go back if we ever get to Charlottesville again.
Theresa was outstanding. She was knowledgeable, descriptive and attentive. The food was incredible.
Mushrooms and lamb were absolutely delicious. Service was great. Ran out of salmon. Rockfish was disappointing. Overall very good.
Delicious meal. My new spouse and I went for a romantic dinner and they treated us like royalty.
Everything was wonderful and we appreciated the option to sit in the outdoor patio very separate from other guests for covid safety. Fantastic cocktails, delightful service, exceptional meal, and decadent desserts! The Ivy Inn is always a family favorite and we will be back again soon. Thank you for making our birthday celebration deliciously memorable!
Service was lacking. Our waiter seemed hurried and indifferent. Told us he was bringing Parker house rolls. He did not. I reminded him but we never got the rolls. Hostess attitude was warm and welcoming. She was a pleasure.
Wonderful bday celebration for my husband with dear friends. Personalized menus and a sparkling toast to start. And a personalized brownie platter to finish. Tenderloin and lamb chops were perfection! This was not our first time nor will it be our last. Looking forward to next time 😋
Ivy Inn always provides a great meal with amazing service. The amuse bouche to start the meal is always a nice touch. Great atmosphere too that encourages quiet conversation. Love it here!
Excellent service and amazing food. The place is lovely and has a very pleasant ambiance.
Fantastic food!! Great service !!
Halibut and sticky toffee for the win!!
Shrimp and grits! Wow!
We let them know we would be celebrating our anniversary. They made sure to make the occasion special. “Happy Anniversary” on the menu (yes!) and also written on chocolate with n our dessert plate.
Our server Heather was phenomenal.
It was our 49 anniversary and it was so special right from the beginning. Our server was wonderful .. the food outstanding even the other people there eating were so friendly . We will definitely visit again!!!
All the food was delicious, and our server excellent. We did have waiting periods between courses, but I know it’s due to high volume with lower staffing levels than average. Had a lovely experience, and will be back!
Best place to eat in Charlottesville. Always a special place to go.
Could not have asked for better!
Amazing service, ambiance and most importantly food!!!
Food and service were awesome! Celebrated our 30th anniversary and they made it very special.
Both my husband and I enjoyed wonderfully prepared dinners. He had the lamb and I had the salmon. Even the sides that went with the dishes were excellent. I cannot remember his name, but our server, was extremely pleasant and very efficient. Being the only server it that room, he kept everyone's water refilled, dishes delivered in a timely manner and was a pleasure to speak to with any request.
it was our first time going to this restaurant. My husband took me there for my birthday and I was thrilled that when I arrived they acknowledged it was my birthday. The waitress and the food were outstanding. The gardens as you walk through the grounds to get to the parking lot were beautiful. I highly recommend.
Lovely old Inn, great service; food excellent, great background music. Lovely dinner
It was good to be able to eat in the outdoor dining space, where you are less apt to be exposed to COVID.
Loved Ivy Restaurant. The food was outstanding and our server was friendly and helpful.
The Ivy Inn was great!! Could have eaten there every night of our stay. Great menu!
Meeting with old friends, Corey gave us plenty of time to get caught up before ordering. Everyone loved their food except me. I did not like the trout. I thought it was tasteless and had the texture of cardboard. Two others had lamb, and my spouse liked his trout. I had no dessert as I had been looking forward to an old favorite, lemon IceBox delight (not the right name). Profitterole also no longer on the menu. I took my leftover home, but I doubt I will be abe to fix it up enough to eat it. What a waste! As I said, the others were delighted with the whole experience. I am too picky.
Great restaurant. We went there on our wedding anniversary and they went out of their way to make the evening special.
Perfect place to have an anniversary dinner!!
Ivy Inn has always been a favorite Cville restaurant.
Excellent food in a relaxed atmosphere. The restaurant is in an older house with lots of charm, and the dining rooms are spacious.
A lovely fine dining experience; the food was excellent and the ambiance at the outside patio was lovely.
Everything was fabulous! The champagne welcome for our anniversary celebration, the food, the service, the beautiful environment - just phenomenal all around!
It was great
Hands down one of the best meals we have ever had, start to finish! The service was just as amazing and the restaurant was charming and beautiful.
You can see at once that care is taken in service and again as soon as the first plates are set in front of you. Amazing restaurant with an emphasis on local producers.
The unfortunate part of the evening was that there was a table of 4 where the man felt that he needed to tell everyone in the restaurant how wonderful he was and all these things he had. It really spoiled the dinner. We should have asked to move.
