I have been visiting Pont de la Tour since if opened 30 years ago. I live around the corner. It is clear they have suffered from the pandemic like the rest of the hospitality world. However, if they believe they can continue in the current form they should have a rethink.
The service was utterly shocking. In fact virtually non existent. A scarcity of staff as usual. We arrived. Sat for 20 mins having been given no menu. We were eventually asked what drinks we would like. Another 20 mins. The same with the food orders and then inevitably when it came to bringing the bill, they disappeared all together. I eventually just got up to leave and tried to pay on my exit. I complained and they reduced the bill by 50%. This was not the point. It’s a consistent theme now and they need to sort it out if they want to keep this “high end”. Get the staff and train them.
It’s such a shame as the food remains of consistently excellent standard.
The whole thing took over 3 hours. I’m going to struggle to return unfortunately and was going to attend their 30th celebration next week but have decided better of it.
Perfection. Nothing else to say x
This was my husband and I first visit to Le Pont de la Tour. The service was good, the restaurant was very clean and social distance was good. The view was lovely, our waiter was very helpful and was able to explain and make suggestions about the menu. The food was amazing. A late anniversary celebration for us and we are so glad we choose to come to Le Pont de la Tour. Will def be visiting again.
Understaffed by disinterested amateurs. Food just “ok”
A shadow of what it once was.
Great meal, Great view, service was good. Enjoyable experience but service brings the rating down a little.
Everything is perfect especially Luca!
Luca take service to a different level. Thank you so much for always looking after us so extraordinarily well.
Wonderful riverside setting beside Tower Bridge.
Good for people watching as they promenade!
Fabulous food, old world charm ambience and excellent service. The lunch set menu is great value.
The food was what
Poor service was the abiding memory of this visit, together with a cold, conveyor-belt like reception. Good cocktails and food but there are just too many better restaurants around to make it necessary to go back.
A consistency high standard with excellent cooking and professional yet informal and friendly service.
Amazing food, staff and atmosphere ! Loved the cheese appetisers
Nice meal, good service as always. Sat outside to comply with the current tier restrictions. A bit chilly :)
Very cold out, but the restaurant took many steps to assure we were comfortable. The menu is currently restricted but the food was absolutely delicious! Everyone was pleased with their meal. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Will come again!
The staff were great. Had a nice bday. Thanks
It was a perfect evening. Food was excellent and so was the wine. The service was amazing. It made us feel very welcome.
Despite the rain we chose to sit outside (under shelter and with a great heater) for our meal facing Tower Bridge. The food was amazing and served in good time. At no point did we feel rushed neither did we feel ignored. The atmosphere was lovely and calm in the restaurant and the staff were helpful and attentive. A special mention to the waiter Kevin who was great. Bearing in mind the quality of food, the helpful staff, the great views and the hygiene the cost is most definitely worth it. I would recommend this place for any special occasion or a date.
Very much enjoyed the evening, staff were attentive, restaurant very good at observing Covid regulation and both the food and wine were fabulous. Will definitely return
We ate outside and felt very safe, the food was very good as was the service. The wine is a little on the pricey side, but all in all we had a lovely lunch
The food was outstanding - presentation and taste. Only niggle that there are a lot of add-ons that pushed the price up beyond what might be expected having selected the set menu. However, it was not possible to fault the service and the location is as ever wonderful.
Polite staff, delicious food and beautiful view
A niece quiet afternoon lunch was enjoyed by both of us
Warm day during the pandemic. Service was good and we sat outside under cover.
Overall nice food and view. Great location. Would eat there again
It was my friend’s birthday so I specified this when booking. I was disappointed when the waiter brought out a dessert with a candle when I was in the restroom so I missed singing happy birthday. Food was reliably good but the wine list seems to have become even more expensive and £18 for a gin and tonic seemed especially steep.
Lovely food and service but wine list starts at £70/bottle
Lovely to sit on the terrace looking at Tower Bridge. Lunch menu good value and delicious, interesting options for vegetarians and meat eaters.
Considering Covid, we felt very safe and secure sitting on the wonderful terrace overlooking the thames. Highly recommended
The wearing of masks does reduce the personal experience between diners and staff. It also removes important facial gestures which speak louder than words. We felt the the staff were all frightened to engage with us and other diners. Some jumping out of the way, for example, when a diner passed them. The table positions outside were too far apart. The experience that was once incredible was ruined. Other restaurants of equal status have done much better and maybe the owners of La Pont should visit The Ivy who so far get my 5 star vote for sensibility within the health guidelines. I am totally in agreement with safety and health but this restaurant, like others, have gone too far.
Great meal and excellent service
Food and atmosphere are good. Nice place close to tower bridge. Service is great and nice choice of food.
However, I know very well wine and they are way overpriced (x5 more than retail price).
Pont de la Tour still retains its air of refinement. The surroundings feel special and the seating is comfortable. It's also nice when you are led from the bar area into the main dining room. The food overall was good. Stand outs were the Bisque (starter) and the Lamb. Both very good indeed. The beef was tender but lacked flavour, The side salad was dry as there was so little dressing.
The service was disappointing. The bar service was surley (not a smile in sight and a feeling of pressure to make up your mind what you wanted) although the gin and tonics were mighty. The restaurant service was fine but it was hugely irritating to be asked on five occasions by the two people serving us how our meal was. I'm afraid it was one of those occasions where the waiter/waitress made their presence felt. Not so good for a restaurant of this quality.
I hadn't been to this restaurant in a long time, had the set menu which was really nice and great value for a 3 course meal. Excellent service and even got my phone charged as it died earlier on in the day. Staff really professional and polite..also quite helpful with directions back to the tube station. A pleasant day all round 💕
service was poor
Wonderful service, fantastic food, beautiful view, unbelievable offer.
As on previous visits the staff were perfect friendly, attentive but not overly and happy to accommodate a slight time change when I phoned.
The food as usual was exceptional. On this occasion they only had half a lobster left, so I changed to the Dover Sole which was cooked perfectly and expertly de-boned for me at the table coming away quickly and cleanly like in a cartoon further testament to the excellent cooking of the dish. The lobster my girlfriend had was also excellent.
I realise I skipped ahead to the mains but the started were also fantastic the smoked salmon and caviar roll with crispy green apple was my favourite.
The creme brûlée dessert was also perfect and I really can’t fault the evening at Pont de la Tour.
It’s not the cheapest dinner in London but it is always excellent especially for special occasion. So I will be back (again).
We had a very nice evening on Valentines Day,
All the staff was amazing, very careful. We had the most amazing tasting dining, they explained all the dishes and also they recommended the perfect wine that could go with the main course and desert.
Really happy, a 5* restaurant.
Good food but overpriced and very small portions
An excellent lunch in an excellent location. Very attentive and helpful service.
Food was delicious, nice restaurant , very good value for money . I would recommend it to anyone !
