Best Service! – We recently experienced our first Ivy's dinner and were pleasantly surprised! We were promptly seated, and the staff, especially the wait staff was excellent. Our server was very friendly and had a great personality! She fully described the menu items and the specials and was never "far away." The food was excellent and the entire evening was thoroughly enjoyable!!
The promotions and advertising efforts are fun and imaginative!!

Delicious Food – We love dining at Ivy's Cafe. The food is delicious, the service is excellent and the atmosphere is quiet and relaxing.
Best Fine Dining – Ivy's Cafe is the best kept secret in the Laurel Highlands. It has superb food-menus that change occasionally-and unique and delicious food offerings. The atmosphere at Ivy's is one of comfort and casual dining. It is my absolute favorite place to eat for a special occasion or just anytime. I enjoy taking out-of-town guests to Ivy's because I am so proud to have such an excellent restaurant near home!! My Mom and I enjoy going to Ivy's for a relaxing and elegant meal. Friends that have gone there at my recommendation have agreed that Ivy's is a favorite of theirs as well. Thanks Ivy's!!!!!! Ginny Amalong
Well worth the drive – Since I visited Ivy's for the first time this past February, I've been recommending it to everyone I know, even though it's roughly a five-hour round trip. I had been to Ligonier a couple of times and enjoyed Ligonier Tavern, Joe's Bar (for the museum-quality animal displays), Ligonier Country Inn and the pie shop across the road (if you want to torture yourself, walk around at night when the cinnamon roll "snails" are being baked) but it wasn't until I ventured into the Celtic Culture store that I heard of Ivy's. Gracious owner Andrew recommended it as well as a couple of other places, depending on cuisine, and we thought Ivy's sounded just right. When we got to the charming ivy-covered brick building shortly after 5 p.m. (on a Saturday), the girls at the desk asked what the reservation was under. Oooops! Regardless, one grabbed a couple of the old book menus and ushered us upstairs. It was gorgeous: fire crackling, white lights glowing. The menu choices were inventive and everything turned out to be scrumptious, especially the mid-course lemon sorbet. All around us regulars' corks were popping and though Ivy's is definitely a gourmet dining experience, it's anything but pretentious. I had the chicken cranberry crepes with a sherry sauce and Richard had one of the specials: center cut pork roast with apple chutney. Two pieces, each about three inches thick and succulent as could be. They serve warm rolls with herb butter piped onto a bay leaf and though we were way too stuffed for dessert (the salads are A++), they sounded otherworldly. We drove back in May to celebrate my birthday (thanks RaNae and Doug for all of your promotions) and again everything was rave-worthy. The Ceasar salad was a work of edible art and after our main courses of vegetable puffed pastry strata and seafood, we shared a dessert: chocolate terrine with raspberry sorbet, drizzled with raspberry sauce. Kudos to everyone at Ivy's. I wished I lived closer.... much closer!
Great place to visit for Sunday lunch! – My mother and I met some relatives at Ivy's Cafe on a Sunday in the fall. We loved it and plan to visit them in the near future. Ivy's Cafe is a unique and enjoyable experience.
Love the crepes!!! – Some friends and I were visiting Ligonier and stumbled on this resturant. What a great discovery. The chicken cranberry crepes are so good! Since then I have been there three other times. I took my mom and two of my best girl friends. They all loved it too. I know whe I will be eating at when I visit Ligonier in the future. Yum!!!
Take a trip back in time to a cozy, romantic atmosphere with great customer service and wonderful food. – If you are looking for an off the beaten path dining experience, Ivy's Cafe is the place to go. Snuggled in the quaint town of Ligonier (there are no fast food chains or Wal Mart Superstores here) you will experience a quiet gourmet meal served in a cheerful atmosphere. The numerous marketing promotions keep customers having fun and coming back for more. After your meal you can browse the streets, window shop in the unique shops, or just sit on the street benches and enjoy the Purple Martins or a Sunday band concert. Definitely a "worth it" dining experience.
Casual elegance and fine food – Ivy's is a treasured spot to go for any occasion. What makes this place so special is their casual elegance coupled with fine food. We often go to Ivy's to celebrate a special occasion, but we also go just to enjoy the atmosphere and great meals. We have never been disappointed with the food or service. It always hits the mark. And the menu, which maintains the tried and true with new ventures, is exciting. Simply put, the food is wonderful. This is definitely a restaurant to visit. It's worth it.
Family night out – We took our daughter and her 2 children ages 2 and a half and 5 months to Ivys for dinner. Upon entering the restaurant our daughter looked and said "you have to be kidding. This is a quiet place." We were assured by the waitress that children were welcome, and she immediately took our grandson's order of chicken and fries. He was promply served. We ordered our dinners and thoroughly enjoyed our evening. As always the atmosphere, service, and our dinners were wonderful. Not only is Ivys a great place for couples we discovered that it is and excellent place for the family.
