The Ivy Restaurant Review

: One of L.A.'s most intense power-meal boîtes --- as well as one of its prettiest --- The Ivy is always inhabited by plenty of familiar faces. The charming patio, surrounded by its signature white picket fence, is the most famous of the design elements created by co-owner-designer Lynn von Kersting. Roses bloom everywhere, the chintz upholstery is lovely and the plates are hand-painted. While some celebrity customers are notorious for tailoring orders to suit their dietary demands, the menu is filled with solid California-ized American dishes --- generously portioned yet nonetheless overpriced --- such as the popular chopped salad, crab cakes, Southern-style fried chicken, swordfish tacos, Maine lobster ravioli and even a bang-up burger. Co-owner Richard Irving started out as a pâtissier and his desserts are among the high points, from chocolate chip cookies to rich pecan squares. Despite the homespun cuisine, you're not likely to receive a warm Mayberry-style welcome. In fact, unless you possess one of those familiar faces, The Ivy can be one of the chilliest spots in L.A.
