Based on the reviews we decided to try out the Ivy restaurant. Having eaten there several years ago was expecting something different. The service was appalling. Took over an hour to get the main course. The only wine available was the house wine, as something happened to all the other wines they apparently had- the house wine was the highlight... More

Wanted a good place for a quiet romantic dinner. Recommended by my kids ww tried and we liked. Very quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Food was good, not great but definitely not bad. Pricey but a nice change to the big establishments. Looking for a gem, check this out. Ask for Jason - great waiter!

They were approached by the waitress who poured them water and asked about their relationship, to which they answered friends. The waitress then stepped away (I'm... More

We went in on a Saturday night shortly after 5. We were asked if we had a reservation which we didn't so the waiter said he'd get his manager. This manager scolded us (his word was scolding) for showing up without a reservation on a weekend. Most restaurants don't take reservations on weekends and we weren't committed to this restaurant....

We went there for an early anniversary dinner. We booked on line and reviewed the menu. When we arrived, the menu was not even close to what is posted. Very expensive for the food you get. My wife asked for a drink/wine list, which was dirty and stained, and got a 1 page cocktail list with no wine options. When... More

They did not have half of the items on the menu, service was very slow, drinks were regularly empty and there were no apologies or efforts made to improve the situation.

Food was great and service was excellent! I highly recommend The Ivy. It has recently undergone new management and renovations, and is poised to be the best fine dining experience in Saskatoon. Not only that, they are reasonably priced.
