The food was great and the service was excellent. The Bananas Foster was wonderful!
Potatoes were super oily and overcooked, and their menu options are super limited. The only thing I really liked was the banana foster. Everything else tasted overcooked.
Ambiance fair rating was the seating for 2 is not very accessible f- two close together - especially for buffet lunch, when wanting to get up for multiple plates.
The service is friendly and fast! A very nice atmosphere!
Calamari was lit
Love ibbys! The pasta was a little salty, but the dessert was phenomenal!
This has become a glorified campus cafeteria: the menu is uninspired, and lunch buffet is crowded with quick to-go-box orders. Seats are close to each other, and it is noisy. I go there from time to time for business lunch, but it's become more and more of a zoo. It is too bad that there is no place for business lunches on campus anywhere except for the faculty club, which is also crowded and with an uninspired menu.
We've eaten here on a regular basis since Ibby's first opened a few years ago and loved it. The next to last time we ate there the food was disappointing.
This time at Ibby's, the food was terrible. The squash pasta was inedible. The chef left the peel on the squash, and it was as tough as wood - just happy I didn't break a tooth. I sent it back and ordered the pork chop. The chop was served very under-cooked and consisted primarily of fat and gristle. The accompanying cabbage was raw yet brunt on one side.
Sadly, we will not go to Ibby's again.
Menu change: from Spring 2017 to Fall 2017, there is a lot less selection with the price jacked up. They took away some of my favorites like the bistro fries and seafood entree options. Their menu sections shrunk by more than half.
Not worth it for the price.
Service: not professional at all-- It was hard to hear the waitress say the specials over the music. Also, I was still eating when a waiter started collecting all my friends plates, leaving me to eat and have a plate all by myself. What was the rush? There were 3 other emply 4-person tables. He made me feel like it'd be rude for me to continue eating, holding up the dinner.
Again, not professional and not worth it for the price.
Overall: Just because Ibby's is on WashU grounds does not mean you should become a cheap bougie restaurant. Where did the quality and selection go? Where did the professionalism go? I'm so sad to see the downgrade of Ibby's.
The food is fine and a pretty expensive. The bread was $8 and honestly was worse than bread that is complementary at most restaurants. The water tasty funky. The service is good, however. And for WashU students, it's a good little restaurant to change things up every once in a while.
