My Lady and I were in Laguna Beach for the wonderful Pageant of the Masters, and arrived at the pavilion an hour or so early; and hungry! We checked our trusty telephones for a nearby place for dinner, and were led to Ivory, just about...More

It's always nice to get seafood when you're close to the beach. Nice, cozy place and friendly wait staff. They're very proud of the appetizer, "Boom-Boom Shrimp." Or maybe it was bang-bang. It wasn't spicy as much as it was 'zesty.' Very good.

I have been to Ivory twice now. It is across the street from the Laguna Playhouse and just a short walk. This is a small and tastefully decorated restaurant. The service is great. The staff are Ukranian but the food is more continental than ethnic....More

From the outside, Ivory does not look like anything special. From the inside, however, it is a small, romantic spot with great service and food. It is a 5 star dining experience.

Hubby ordered the lamb, which he absolutely loved, and I had the mushroom ravioli, which I loved. We also both tried the Blini, which we both loved. Food was good, service was attentive, ambience was cozy, parking was aplenty. Highly recommend.

My mother in law gave my husband and I a gift certificate to Ivory. So happy she did. We would have never gone otherwise. A bit hidden off of 133, not easy to spot, but what a gem of a place. We had the most...More
