Relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff and superb pork cutlet, very tender. My only complaint is that the lightning was so dim that it was difficult to read the menu, mobile phone needed.

Great food, too many tables in the venue to consider this for a nice quiet romantic meal. Our table was was felt like in a corridor as you go in the main entrance. Table next to us spent the whole time being incredibly loud and not considering others. Food was great, service great.

Another superb meal and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Had to wait longer for our table than we have previously, although we arrived exactly on time - we waited for 10 minutes. The table they took us too was already set up and we'd been looking at it for the entire 10 minutes we were waiting, so unsure why the delay. We did have to chase the waitress twice for one starter that wasn't brought with the rest of the starters and butter for the soda bread was a bit stingy ! My fathers olives contained less olives and actually had jalapenos in it instead of olives. Good job his palette could take it ! Overall a lovely experience, but these three points I had not experienced on our previous visits.

We really appreciated the range of vegetarian and vegan dishes available. All of the food was excellent, especially the vegetarian Shepherd's Pie with the oyster mushroom core. Have already recommended to friends.

Excellent food and location - the service was as expected for a restaurant of this calibre still think 12 1/2 % service charge is a little steep. Still wouldn't stop me from returning.

Food was amazing, place is decorated amazingly inside, the view is incredible. But if you are round the front of the restaurant it is loud, felt like I was shouting at my mum across the table.

Food was ok, but nothing above average. Lamb was very tough and the vegetables were verging on uncooked. I'm all for al dente, but beans were 'stringy' and decidedly not cooked on any level.

Pudding was ok but again nothing outstanding. Frozen berries is an interesting concept but these were so frozen they were again verging on inedible. Non negotiable service charge of £12 was also very steep given the service was ok but again not exceptional. Given the price being charged for the decidedly average meal I was not impressed at having to pay a further £12 just to have someone bring it to me...

Had a nice evening at the Ivy TB. Lovely ambience and seat. Food nice, feel it's bordering on becoming higher priced than the quality of food is worth - but the selection means it's good menu for many tastes. Service felt a bit rushed and domineering. It would be good if that could be relaxed a touch. But otherwise, very nice and would come back again.

Had a very nice early evening dinner with my 11 years old grandson and our service was lovely and front of house staff were also delightful. I’ve been to this restaurant before always before going to see something at the Bridge Theatre.

A wonderful dinner, excellent food and we were well attended to by the staff (our waiter was called Salvatore I think, he was great). We were initially placed on the side part of the restaurant, but on request got swiftly moved to a table with a view of Tower Bridge and the Thames. Would certainly recommend.

Over the two courses we had in a group of 4 we had several items that never arrived. Which was more frustrating because as soon as the food arrived the wait staff disappeared. Service was poor throughout. Food was ok but nothing to get excited about, and price did not match quality. Wasn’t overly busy but was still loud, presumably the acoustics are bad.

A business lunch for 5 people. Great location & excellent service, food is good but not exceptional.
What really frustrates is that main courses do not come with any accompaniments even at the high prices this place charges.

Gorgeous food and lovely staff. Beautiful surroundings. My only issue was that my teapot let the tea go cold, although if I had spoken up I’m sure I could have got a refill. I’m also slightly surprised that unlimited coffee isn’t included in the price.

A delightful experience from the moment we were warmly welcomed at the door. The menu was varied, with a number if options for all tastes, the service was friendly and attentive and the food was well presented, ample and, most importantly, delicious.
The views of Tower Bridge and the river, even on a wet and windy night are beautiful and make the experience complete. I will definitely return when visiting London again.

Have been to this branch before lunchtime but this was a weekend brunch visit. Seated by the window with a lovely view. Scallops as starter ..superb. We had a matinee performance at The Bridge next door and when we pointed out we were tight on time the serving staff were very good at ensuring we weren't late which was really appreciated

We loved this place! It was an anniversary lunch. We had a prawn cocktail as starter and as main course a salmon and smoked haddock fish cake and one halloumi open sandwich. All the dishes were absolutely delicious!
As side dish we ordered some amazing truffle and Parmesan chips.
Service was well-timed and friendly and the drinks were affordable. We love the very professional waitress Daniela!
In the end they even surprised us with an anniversary cake, candle included!
It was a very satisfying experience, we definitely would recommend the Ivy Tower Bridge to anyone who goes to London.

We had a reservation for 8.30 and were left waiting for 25 minutes with no explanation. Other couples that arrived after us were being seated after we arrived. This seemed to be happening to other guests too. I appreciate sometimes the table isn't ready but we were given no explanation and no apology and not even given the option to sit at the bar so were just waiting whilst being in the way of service and other guests.

The food was ok but the evening had been dampened a bit by this point.
