    It was a special occasion - my daughter's 21st. We booked a lateish table for lunch and the staff were fabulously accommodating and cheerfully helpful. We gorged ourselves and spared little expense. And my, my; was it good. It was supposed to be a treat and a memorable experience. And that is exactly what it turned out to be.

    We have been to the restaurant before. I recognise that they have sought to keep the set menu costs the same in a time of inflation. So the overall value was "not bad" but options quite limited just one fish, meat and vegetarian dish. For some reason additional vegetables weren't offered. It was recommended we have the steaks medium so they weren't tough, they still were!, Disappointing, I didn't eat much of mine.. The fish dish was OK but not as tasty as usual.

    The food was decent, but not worth the costs. You are definitely paying for the view and location. Word of caution: this restaurant has different menus, and they won't be willing to share them all with you openly; plus, double-check your bill! My family was there for Easter, and we were not offered the prefixed Easter menu but the standard ala-chart menu when we sat down. I only realized there was a prefixed easter menu when it was offered to the adjacent table. When I inquired with the waiter, they gave me a cockamamie excuse: I needed to indicate which menu I was interested in when I made the reservation. There wasn't a place to do so on the OpenTable to indicate which menu you would be ordering from, nor do I think the menu would have been available since the reservation was made well in advance. The waiter was astute enough to key in on my dissatisfaction, and the manager finally agreed to share the menu with the table and took over the waiter role. However, only after we had placed our orders and the appetizers were likely on their way, which made the situation very awkward. To his credit, he did offer a glass of champagne on the house. Also, we asked for still water, and the first pour was from a bottle, which was not left on the table. When they returned to fill the water glasses, it was from a pitcher, but we were charged for a bottle of still water. Last but not least, the prices on the menu did not match the bill. Though only a pound or two here and there, this practice is very deceptive. Other than that, the meal was decent but nothing special and a very uncomfortable meal, from start to finish.

    Disappointed as we have dined there on numerous occasions. The starters were good but sadly the mains were very disappointing. I ordered the Bavette steak. I was told it was coming up pink which is how I like it. It came up blue and burnt on the outside. Inside was cold and swimming in blood. I sent it back with the waiter agreeing me it was not right. It came back very quickly even more burnt on the outside and still raw inside. My husbands meal of sole goujons was fairly tasteless. We will not be returning any time soon!!

    Beautiful location and setting. Eaten here many times. Food is excellent and menu is varied and interesting, but service is functional. No warmth or interest. I think they were short staffed. New barman really struggled too. Dinner for 3 was almost £400 so you expect the best.. will return later this year but not great value. One final observation- I was here a month ago and not one member of staff was the same. Perhaps struggling to retain staff?

    Wonderful view of Tower Bridge and the Tower of London from our seat. We enjoyed cocktails on arrival before moving to our seat. The staff were very welcoming, and attentive. A massive salmon blini to start and a perfectly cooked beef roast to follow. And they made me a birthday cake! How did they know? There was a customer behind us moaning unreasonably about something that was very clear on the website. They will no doubt leave a poor review. Ignore them, this is a wonderful place to go for dinner.

    Great location, good service, food tasty but portions a little on the small side. Everything seemed geared to make as much money as possible…water expensive, wine very expensive, optional service charge 13.5% which is pushing it. Overall it was Ok but we hoped for more at those prices

    I was a bit sceptical about dining out on Valentine’s Day, but it was honestly the best meal we have had at this restaurant in a long time. We chose from the main menu rather than the Valentines special. Top quality service, ambient live music and an outstanding meal made for a perfect experience, thank you!

    This has long been one of my favourite restaurants. Sadly, last night here was a terrible experience. The service was very poor with diners arriving much later than us being on their third course while we were still waiting for our second. Asking for a wine list three times to order a glass of red wine with our main course. By the time we got the wine, the main course was cold and they had to take it away and reheat/ replace them. The French 75 cocktails had to be be remade as the tasted awful. The first course was cold. The one saving grace was that the main course was cooked beautifully. Such a let down after years of fantastic service and food.

    Beautiful dining room with magnificent outlook on to Thames and Tower Bridge. Poor listening to my dietary requirements and the green beans k and indeed my Dover sole were covered in salt which I cannot eat! As we were guests of our hosts and time was limited because of theatre, I did not make a fuss but a restaurant of this calibre should know how to respect dietary requests.

    I haven't been to Le Pont De La Tour for years. I'd forgotten what an incredible all-round experience it is. We arrived early for a pre-theatre dinner. We had a drink it the bar, perched at a window overlooking the bridge. Breath-taking sunset views. The prix-fixe was superb: delicious ham to start, followed by an incredible cod bourguignon. We were beautifully looked after by all of the staff, but Salar was so quietly friendly and attentive - he deserves a special mention. We definitely won't be leaving long before we make a return visit!

    Have eaten here many times before however several years ago and never disappointed, however this time we were. It was my partners birthday so was very upset how it’s changed. The food let you down also my partner had a beer that was flat and tasted off, they did change it however would have been a good gesture to have it on the house.

    Brilliant on all accounts, just a shame there wasn't a bit more of an atmosphere, but then that can't be helped if the restaurant is quiet. I was rather shocked to see how empty the restaurant was given that it was a Saturday night. This aside, from start to finish the service and the quality of the food could not be faltered at all. The welcome from all staff was friendly without being over the top, the waiters and sommelier were fantastic and the food was utterly delicious. I don't think I have ever eaten better duck. The Pinot Noir that was recommended as an accompaniment was particularly satisfying. Being offered a front seat view of the Thames and Tower Bridge was a lovely added touch. I would love to come back when the restaurant is buzzing - that's what these places really need, but would happily return again perhaps in summer.
