    Had a wonderful evening but I didn’t feel the waiters asked if everything was ok enough and felt they should’ve been more accessible. Further a medium steak is brown on the outside pink on the inside. My first was all brown second was red. The staff tried to convince me it was medium but it clearly wasn’t but the 3rd time it was very nice. Bar that I had a lovely evening.

    Fabulous cake and scones for afternoon tea. Service very slow, difficult to hail anyone down to get the bill, water etc. Tea was served a long time before the cakes arrived and was therefore stone cold and no-one around to get top ups.

    Had a great lunch with friends at the Ivy Tower Bridge, seated outside. We were initially served quite quickly, ordering drinks first of all, but needed more time to decide our food options. We then had quite a wait before we could place our food order and this was only after flagging down a member of staff. Starters came, but we then had a very long wait for our main course and had to chase with a member of the waiting team. Food was delicious when it arrived and on this occasion the long wait didn't detract from our lunch as it gave us time to catch up with each other. Staff were very friendly and helpful when we interacted with them. Would still visit this restaurant again.

    Service was very slow and despite a lot of staff, very muddled. My food had been sitting on the hot plate. Only the second time I’ve refused to pay the service charge, a shame as I love The Ivy chain, but this experience was disappointing.

    The Ivy was a lovely place to eat, food and ambience was exceptional. The only negative I have is that they put your drinks and food on their side table and you can see it but they don’t give it you straight away, very strange

    Asked for poached eggs but without the whites, I got two fried egg yolks. Drink was spilt when the waiter brought it over. We weren’t given a check back at any point or offered second drinks. When the plates were cleared we were asked how was everything. I replied ok, but disappointed and merely got an “ok” as a response. No one then came to ask what was wrong. When checking in initially a table of 2 before us had no reservation so we’re turned away as you were fully booked. The restaurant was half empty and we only saw one other table enter in the entire time we were there. Very disappointing, over priced for basic food and lack of service.

    Tried calling to amend table from 7 to 6 & move back 16 mins but no one would answer. Sent an email but table was still made up for 7. Our waiter was lovely and the food excellent. We were told that they needed our table back when we had 3/4 bottle of wine left. We drank it quickly and then another member of staff quite rudely told us to leave. Made our guests (family from America) feel very embarrassed. We used the toilet as we left & there were lots of unused tables (1 of our size) near there. Sad because we’d had a lovely evening until then and we all left feeling like we’d been told off. We then said goodbye to our family who were leaving the uk.

    Outstanding service, we arrived early, they quickly found us a table, outside as we had originally requested. Sadly it started to rain, they offered us blankets but unfortunately we were in line with a cold breeze they found us a table inside. Nothing appeared to be too much trouble.

    My friend and I booked for a birthday lunch after visiting ‘SuperBloom’ at the Tower of London. We arrived an hour early but the staff were very accommodating allowing us to sit in the bar, whilst a table was found for us. We received complimentary cocktails as it was our birthday’s which was a lovely surprise. Food was absolutely delicious, our waiter was friendly and professional and we received the most divine tasting and huge chocolate Profiterole with a candle for our birthdays. The table had a two hour limit but the staff kindly relocated our drinks back to the bar where we sat for a coffee. All in all a really lovely experience and we were very well looked after. Will definitely return. Thank you Ivy Tower Bridge 🙏

    Food and service was up to the usual high standard. The only down side is the portions are relatively small so you can walk away feeling like more needed. I had a prawn cocktail and shepherds pie so the traditional route and neither are that filling so maybe was the choice made. Its great location sitting outside with tower bridge and tower of London as a backdrop and nice as a celebration location. As with most places its drink and sides which push it from being £40ph to £80 ...but its a great cocktail menu ! House wines i found very good and £25 not silly price.

    Fabulous food. Slow service. Was sat for ages before drinks order taken. Had to ask for water 4 times before it came. Some waiting staff totally ignored us when we called them. Food was absolutely out of this world. Great value for money. Lovely table overlooking the Tower.
