I arranged a meal here to celebrate my mothers BIRTHDAY and messaged ahead when making the booking to see if anything could be done to make our visit special however nothing was done which was a shame. Food was average and not like the main Ivy re regularly visit in the city.

Service was impeccable, waitress was calm ,quiet and got on with her work invisibly well. She was very attentive, kind, friendly and also careful with our order being that we had two nut allergy prone children.

I booked online for afternoon tea as a treat for my granddaughters 18th birthday. When we arrived on 13th September, I was told that afternoon tea was not being served until 16th September. At no time was I made aware of this from booking to arrival, and I had emails to ask if we were still attending. The waitress said sorry, but the online booking system is obviously different to what happens in the restaurant. I felt under pressure to order drinks as they were very busy. I asked my 3 granddaughters if they would like to eat something else, and we decided that as we had all traveled from different places to meet up, that we might as well. Food was good but not what we really wanted. Staff were very busy and there was quite a few gaps in service. I was very disappointed that we were not offered even a complementary drink to make up for the faux pas.

From the moment me and my nephew arrived we were made to feel so welcome and special and nothing was to much trouble and everyone went above and beyond for my 3 year old nephew. Thank you for making a special memory for us.

We saw our son and his girlfriend face to face for the first time in 6 month so this was a special occasion. We met for breakfast on a warm and sunny day. We enjoyed the food -mainly variations on Eggs Royale- the nice feel of the ambience, and the great views. An uplifting start to the day!

What a beautiful venue the Ivy Tower Bridge is - if you sit outside, you get uninterrupted views of Tower Bridge and the Tower of London; two of the most iconic sites in London! It is perfect for a romantic dinner for two, or families or larger groups (when that is permitted of course)!

Great menu selection plus vegetarians and vegans are catered for.

Service was faultless. A special heads up to our waitress, Rebecca - who was so attentive, professional and friendly.

In short - go to the Ivy Tower Bridge. No it's not cheap, but it is worth it, especially if it is for a special occasion or if your going to the theatre, as the Bridge Theatre is right next door!!!

Service was poor, had to ask to be served twice, only got half of meal, steak came first with no chips, got chips 8 mins later after asking where they were. No standard Rose available, offered what was available £13.50 a glass, although have since checked wine list and cannot see a glass of Rose for that price, really disappointed and wouldn’t recommend

A wonderful Anniversary dining experience. We were greeted with a friendly receptionist who showed us to our table. Our waiter was Daniel who was amazing and tentative and made excellent recommendations with a cheeky smile. We had Crab and Apple with watermelon and tempura prawns for starters, blackened Cod in a banana leaf & crab linguine for main, and chocolate bombe and strawberry sundae for desserts, all extremely delicious. We were presented with a little sponge cake with a dark chocolate with Happy Anniversary written on it, a very nice touch indeed.
The ambience was just right, a thoroughly enjoyable evening with the best waiter in the house. We will return without a doubt.

Absolutely beautiful restaurant, with an even more beautiful view. Food, service and ambience were all top notch - couldn’t fault anything! Only minor fault was a slight mix up in our booking numbers, so we had to wait a few minutes to be seated. But would definitely recommend to anyone, particularly to celebrate an occasion.

Belatedly celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary at the Ivy. Staff were friendly and efficient. We had a lovely table by the window with views of Tower Bridge. Felt very safe, hand sanitiser bottles were on each table. The menu is varied and the food was very good-we were not rushed and had a very enjoyable time.
