  • The Vangelopoulos family continues to impress. Terrific food, great wine and super service. The Ivy Inn continues to be one of the best restaurants in Charlottesville.
    Try the Medley of amFog Wild Mushrooms or the Autumn Farmhouse Vegetables as appetizers.
    Follow that with either the Trout or the Flounder. Both are super!
    I'm summary, if you are looking for a great "food experience" in a terrific atmosphere, you cannot beat The Ivy Inn.

  • Celebrating our weddinganniversary here! This place is beautiful. It's situated in an old house and the lighting makes it even more romantic. The wine list goes on for miles and the food choices are nice and varied. I got the bison hanger steak and thoroughly enjoyed it. My husband got the trout dish. He was skeptical about it because he is a trout "expert" but was really impressed. The waitress was so friendly and helpful. I could eat here every week if my wallet allowed it.

  • My wife and I ate at the Ivy Inn while in Charlottesville for our honeymoon. This was unquestionably the best meal that we had on our trip. Everything was top notch. We loved the decor and the friendly service. The food was exceptional. The duet of lamb was excellent.

    I highly recommend a visit.

  • What a wonderful find. I saw Ivy Inn on the recent list of James Beard nominees and we decided to check it out over the long weekend. We were impressed. Located in a two century old structure, One can't help think of the scholars which have passed through its doors as our country grew. But the real thought is on what delicious treats are in store. The new American me u has something for everyone. I could resist the temptation of a deviled egg appetizer to start. They are as basic as they sound and yet have a little something in them which mom was unaware of. My wife's soft shell crab reminded me of growing up in the tidewater area where soft shells mark the start of summer. My bison hanger steak with a whole grain mustard sauce was as good as I can remember bison tasting. Our waiter was interesting and informative stopping by with just the right frequency.

    It was all together a great dinner.

    Situated right next to UVA in a cozy and welcoming standalone building. Love the garden entrance. Dining rooms are set up inside the separate rooms of the house, warmly lit, classic style furniture, beautiful tablecloths but the decor is not uncomfortably formal at all. Good for a family dinner, romantic dinner, co-worker dinner, or just a night out with friends.

    A very pleasant host greeted & seated us, and our waitress was knowledgeable, attentive, and very nice.

    The food was AMAZING. Warm bread & soft butter to start with. We had two different soups as appetizers, both of which blew us away with the amount of flavor. Two main courses, both impeccable. And a delicious dessert. Great wine selection.

    It was a birthday dinner, so the restaurant gave us a wonderful seat and provided champagne to start with on the house. Always a memorable and nice touch.

    Will definitely be back! Thank you!

  • "We hosted a wedding welcome dinner here a few weeks ago and are happy we did. Angelo and his team are fantastic! We had a large party so got a private room with two attentive servers. Creating the menu was fun, and Angelo was very easy to work with."

  • After searching numerous listings, we picked The Ivy for a special dinner. As we had called in just a few hours before, they couldn't accommodate us inside but they found us a cozy space in the patio. However, once we got there we requested if we could sit inside and the server found us a place in a few minutes! The service was impeccable and they managed to satisfy all our special requests (we had a few vegetarians in our party). We ordered the lamb, grilled trout, and the blue crab gnocchi. All of the dishes were outstanding. The deserts were excellent too.

  • Amazing food! Everything we got was delicious, especially the shrimp and grits. I can't wait to come here again to try some other items. My only complaint was that their beautiful outdoor patio was plagued by bees. It is really uncomfortable to eat dinner while bees are harassing you.
