Tips:
  • The restaurant is crowded every night of the week. Reservations are strongly suggested.

From OpenTable: 

The Ivy’s tropical counterpart, Ivy at the Shore, offers the same delicious food plus icy island drinks, a 12-seat bamboo bar and beaut surfside view. Don’t miss the sunset over the Pacific with a Fresh Pineapple Daiquiri or two.

Best of the Bunch for Brunch

Someone must have said: “Take the word ‘Preppy’ and turn it into a restaurant,” and lo and behold Ivy at the Shore was created. It’s ‘The Daily Grill’ done ‘Tommy Bahama’ style.

Nothing is outrageously delicious, trendy, challenging or even tastes bad. Like a Sperry Topsider shoe, their approach gets the job done reliably and efficiently without flare, serving high quality American foods in a simple tropical-inspired upscale environment. The waiters are really the star of this show with highly attentive service and stylish matching pastel ties.

I’ve been here many times and get in a rut ordering the Chilled poached salmon or the Grilled Vegetable Salad with Chicken. In my early days I used to order off- menu like a Fried Calamari Ceasar Salad.

That’s the nice thing about this place is if you don’t see it on the menu, they may actually make it for you if they have the ingredients and you ask nicely.

Sunday brunch is delightful by the water. They bring mini raisin scones with butter and jam to help you decide what to order. Portions are large and plenty for two – especially the salads. I believe many people return time and time again in hopes of seeing celebrities rather than for the food, as the clientele is quite attractive because high prices keep out the riffraff.

Not for foodies

The food is just okay for a high end, top of the line LA restaurant. It is fresh and tasty but in my opinion not really special but the Ivy at the Shore is more for the atmosphere.

A little overpriced, but you're paying for the view

I like this place-- good food, great patio seating area with a great view. If you want more privacy, the back room is nice too. The food isn't bad at all, its just a little overpriced... but hey, its a restaurant on Ocean Ave. and you…
