The food was tasty..but the portions were too small..the menu has no plenty of options..it needs some variety..the service was added to the bill despite we were only 2..but the place was nice ..with good decorations and lovely spirit.

I booked Ivy Tower Bridge for a birthday brunch, the food was good, location is beautiful especially as we were seated in the middle of the Resturant and the view was stunning at night.

However the service was not great, they didn’t do anything out of the ordinary knowing it was a birthday booking.
Infact once the first round of food was served its like the staff forgot about our table, and service just went downhill from there. There’s a standard level of service you expect anywhere let alone from hosts at the “The Ivy” and it just was not met.

What a brilliant night I had for my birthday. I have never been there before and the moment we walked in we were greeted with great service with a smile. Our waiter was lovely and made us laugh throughout the evening. Great food and reasonably priced and topped off with a mini birthday cake

Was disappointed. Starter was delicious, dessert was lovely but the main was not what I expected. I ordered a burger - no cheese so it came with cheese. Husband had finished his main before i got mine replaced & I found it really dry. I did complain & was not charged so it was sorted but I was not really happy about it! Also we had wine which they put on a sideboard & I had to wait for them to replenish our glasses, this I found strange & again was not really happy about as I like to monitor how much I have drunk by looking at the bottle. WE decided to deduct the service charge, although we did leave a tip but ended up getting the third degree from the manager which I felt was wrong

Fabulous evening with friends - great service and beautiful location with stunning food, cocktails and wine! Slight critique would be shepherds pie portion was quite small for a main and a couple of the berry desserts were lacking in taste but overall a brilliant evening and I'd definitely go back

We had the best night at The Ivy Tower Bridge. The staff, the food and the view were all outstanding.
The staff went over and above for my friend with a gluten allergy.
We will certainly be back.
Fantastic value too.

We had some delays being seated so we weren’t off to a great start, but our waiter was so wonderful that he totally turned our experience around into a really enjoyable evening. He was especially lovely in his approach to our children.
Also great food, ambience and view.

Met a friend for lunch on Saturday 16th November 2019. Excellent table with views across the river. Staff were very attentive and food was enjoyable and reasonably priced for London. I would have no hesitation in recommending the restaurant to others.

The food was nice but very underwhelming, was very standard food with no trimmings. You are definitely paying for the name of the place and the location.

Nice ambience, waiting staff great although a bit slow with drinks and food. The restaurant was busy at the time though. A nice touch of a little cake for my husband’s birthday.

Too busy! Arrived in good time to have a couple of drinks before our meal but no seating room at the bar. Our table was booked for 7.45 but only after we had reminded a member of staff that we were still waiting to be seated we were finally shown to our table at 8.15. We were then given a wrong starter and then served someone else’s drinks. Such a shame as other Ivy restaurants we have eaten at have always been excellent in all respects.

Another lovely meal at The Ivy Tower Bridge. Our waiter was excellent and service great as usual. Even gave us a small celebration cake as we were celebrating four birthdays.

Table booked for three a couple of weeks ago. On arrival seated in a corner area on the bench seating that was evidently for two and even then it would be a squash. No room on the table for side side plates and trapped in the corner by the adjacent tables. Impossible to get to from the seating area without disturbing other diners. Complained to the waitress who couldn’t care less so paid for the beer that we had and left. Absolutely rubbish.

This was my second visit here and as the first time it didn't disappoint.
From front of house staff to waiters/waitresses everyone were very friendly and helpful.
The food was amazing.
The decor is chic and tasteful.
The views are fantastic. (We had a window seat)
I have already booked to go to the new St.Paul Ivy so hoping it's as good as this one.
I would definitely go here again. Perfect for a special occasion.

All staff very welcoming and attentive. Waiter very helpful in explaining parts of the menu. Food was excellent with a wonderful ambience in the restaurant. There was a delay in the pudding arriving but the waiter was quick to apologise and explain what had happened. Great location with terrific views of Tower Bridge. Hopefully will return in the near future.

Although we had a very enjoyable time and the food was very good indeed unfortunately there was a table of 4 next to us that were very rowdy !!! They had obviously been on the wine and were very annoyingly loud and swearing that spoiled it for us. The service we had was very good and attentive. The setting is just wonderful.

Lovely food and great attentive service from waiters - although this was mainly at the beginning, and were less attentive once we had finished our mains... (but thats the important bit right! Getting your food. Although we are usually in a rush to pay etc to get back to work for meetings etc.

Also, the lady who took our coats to hang up in the entrance - put them all on the same hanger, it was pouring with rain, so putting coats on top of eachother will surely get the inside of some coats wet! (Minor issue but it was absolutely pouring and cold outside!)

Would definately come again - really lovely food and atmosphere - nice that its so busy!

Lovely ambience and surroundings. Food excellent. Service generally attentive however we did feel a bit forgotten about after the main course. This did not spoil our evening however - we were in no rush and enjoying the atmosphere.

On entering the restaurant there were a lot of workers there, I was welcomed but no one offered to take my coat or offered the clock room service, I had to requested. The service was good overall. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was lovely and lively. It was noisy, all I can hear is people talking, I don't remember if there was music in the background actually. The waiter was good and experienced but a bit over the top at times. We had to ask for some of the sauces twice as they got forgotten.
