    It was my husband birthday. They sat us next to a large family party with children and next to kitchen. When asked how the veranda and window seats were assigned we were told it was by computer and hostess. There were many empty better seats when we arrived yet we sat near the busy kitchen and noise. Our meal was late coming out of the kitchen as well.

    The food was delicious but slow. We waited about 30 minutes for our appetizer and over an hour for our main after our appetizer came, our server didn’t check in once in that time to check our drinks or see how we were doing.

    My wife and I had a very leisurely lunch on the patio overlooking the St. Lawrence River and marina. Service was great and the Lobster roll was fine. Not like we have in the maritimes but the ambience made up for it.

    We had a great lunch here on a Saturday morning in July! The covered patio is fantastic and shades you from the sun but give full exposure to the St Lawrence River. Great food and good variety to. Prices are reasonable and you are allowed to take your time with no hurry at all! This is our favorite spot to eat in the area!

    Couldn't ask for a better location. It really is a beautiful spot. Brunch for 4. Steak was not cooked the desired doneness and had a lot of gristle. Eggs Chesapeake were delicious and cooked to perfection. The oysters were delicious. The dutch baby pancakes are really tasty. The service was a bit slow and a bit hit and miss on accuracy. The restaurant is not very accessible. No electronic opening for the entrance or bathroom. Accessible parking was not available due to being blocked for an art fair. Overall, we had a nice brunch. 3/4 of our meals were great. We would probably go again for a lunch or dinner due to the fabulous location. We also found the price quite reasonable.

    We had a wonderful meal at the bar. We were able to enjoy a quiet delicious meal after a very busy day. The ambiance and surrounding landscape were amazing. Definitely worth it and we plan to visit again soon.

    We enjoyed a fabulous lunch. The dining room is very cosy and the views are excellent. Our lobster rolls were very good and our server did an excellent job. No hesitation recommening the Ivy for lunch or dinner. In nice weather the veranda is exquisite.
