We had a meal at Pont de la Tour to celebrate my father’s birthday. Most of our group took advantage of the Evening Standard set menu which was excellent value. The food was great, as was the service, my only point to improve was that one of the waiters was a little pushy with my son, trying to convince him to have a starter when there was nothing on the menu that he really fancied. Apart from that, a great experience. My Dad even got given a complementary brownie to celebrate his birthday.

We really enjoyed our meal in the bar and grill on Saturday evening. We've been before, and are always impressed by the high quality food, attention to detail, attentive service and the evening standard menus make it really good value too!

I love this place. The staff are always so attentive and polite. We were served by a real nice guy from the US and he really made sure we were looked after well. He recommended dishes and knew the menu well plus knowledgeable about the wines. Menu was the Evening Standard fixed price offer menu which was excellent. Even the kids liked it and they are usually fussy. Highly recommend the squid starter. Will be visiting again soon!

We had such a fun time at Le Pont de la Tour, dashed there before heading to the theatre and managed to enjoy our three courses, have time to relax and generally have a great few hours. Excellent and attentive service.

Friendly welcome, lovely food and helpful but unobtrusive service meant this was a very pleasant evening, with low noise levels which meant we could hear each other and enjoy catching up without having to compete with loud background noise. A very good evening, will definitely return.

I was there for a Friday night dinner. Booked a 20£ for 3 courses which is a great deal. At first staff was attentive, but when my main course came I asked waiter fo a carafe Of wine . He nodded and walked away . I didn’t get my wine or his attention. After my wine-less dinner asked for a bill . 25 minutes later I had to get up and go ask again. Wasn’t very pleased with service I must say

Food, very good. Staff, very good. Location Excellent. Would have been 5 stars BUT I wish these restaurants (and it seems they all do it) would get the bill right if you order from the set menu. In our case it was a £15, 2 course lunch menu. We were charged full a la carte price and had to get our bill corrected TWICE. It spoils what was an excellent experience.

Value was good simply due to the brunch deal. Loved service, view and ambience but food was constantly arriving cold. I don't like complaining and plus had a date but it was very odd.

Really nice experience- if the weather was better it would have been lovely to sit outside with a view of tower bridge being so close! Amazing value for money - with extra drinks & service the bill was around £50. Highly recommended

Tourist trap. A lot of money for poor food and poor service. Take your photos of stunning view of Tower Bridge and eat somewhere else.

The food was really good, we didn’t know what to expect as we had opted to try an Evening standard offer but it was good value apart from the fish which was served on its own. Luckily we had ordered some sides.
The only thing that let the evening down was the service. It started well, with the waiter arriving in good time to take our order, but it went down hill when not only did they not check to see if the meal was ok, we were sitting for a long time with our empty plates and no one tried to clear them or ask if we wanted anything else. (An upsale opportunity wasted) and in the end we had to go searching for a staff member to get the bill. Then they left it and virtually ran off, leaving us feeling as though we had to hunt someone down just to pay! What a shame!

I was initially disappointed when I first arrived with my friends, as despite my reservation being accepted we were told that there was only a table in the bar and grill (which was empty and therefore had no ambience ) and not the restaurant. It was my friends birthday and therefore had requested a seat outside (I realise that this was only a request ) at least 2 weeks in advance . Happy to say the host found us a table outside, we had a wonderful evening with great service and food. The intial disappointment was forgotten

Delicious food, world-class views, exceptional service, great ambiance, and good value food with the special set menu deal. The add-ons (a side-dish each, and a glass of wine each) more than doubles the cost, - but for a venue this special it's difficult to complain. I'll definitely be back.

Had the Evening Standard set menu which is great value for money. Great choices, which is often rare when dealing with set. The venue is lovely, cannot fault the views!, and the people are lovely and attentive (the remembered and were careful when dealing with allergies). The food was lovely, not spectacular, but clean plates at the end. HOWEVER the service was very slow which did impact the eve a tad as it meant we felt rushed by the end. Would go again, probably.

We used to go years ago and the bar side of the restaurant was super pleasant. It used to be the slight casual arm of the establishment but still with white table cloth and excellent service. However, now it has become way too casual and has lost the ambiance.

First visit for me. It’s definitely worth a visit through the summer as the riverside location is great, but otherwise it’s got nothing that marks it as somewhere special to me. Food, service, value... all average.

I took my wife and 8 month old son here for a Mother’s Day lunch as it was one of the few restaurants in the area that didn’t implement an overpriced set menu for Mother’s Day.

The main courses were great,

Great location and this place never fails to be a little bit special. We went for a Saturday lunch and although the restaurant wasn't busy it didn't lack atmosphere. We enjoyed a speedy lunch prior to going to The Bridge Theatre. The food is fresh and the service is attentive but not obtrusive. Some areas of the restaurant look a little tired in the daylight (ladies loos and the doors to the toilets)

Poor quality of food and service in the brasserie section. 7 of us dined on Tuesday evening on the set menu offer they do during the week. The steak was very fatty and all the chips they served on the table had been cooked too much they were completely hard. I complained to 3x different people about the chips and they didn't bring fresh ones. When the manager came over (after we had all finished) he asked how everything was and I told him disappointing having already told 2 of his staff. At that point he said he will get some more but we had all finished so was pointless. At the very least I would have thought they would have offered something - teas/ coffees/ desserts on the house but they said nothing and the girl was not apologetic or pleasant. They handed the bill to another person on the table with the full cost and no acknowledgement of the poor service. Having complained, they then took some money off. Quite disappointing given its a local restaurant for me and I brought my work team. I will not be in a hurry to go back.

Delicious food and good service. We dined on a Friday evening which was not busy, so perfect for us as dinner was a catch up with friends.
