    Love the Ivy, but dissatisfied with this visit. Drinks ordered, but didn’t arrive until mid way through our breakfast. Despite asking twice. Breakfast arrived, my wife’s had the wrong type of eggs on it. So we ended up eatting at different times. Food was still excellent, but the experience was not up to the usual standard

    Service was not where it’s been in the past - needing to ask for additional drinks, dessert menu etc. Soft poached egg with the fish cakes was hard boiled. French fries didn’t arrive.

    Overall the majority of the food was nice. However, for a special occasion we decided to end the meal by purchasing the rib eye which is very expensive. Considering the price we were expecting the quality of the meat to be very high and the taste to be superb. However, to our disappointment, the meat was very chewy, we even had to spit 2-3 parts as they were impossible to swallow. We mentioned this to the waitress and we only heard "sorry" which is not what we were expecting after having explained the issue. This was the last meal and left a bitter taste to our experience.

    The food was very good, though the ordered condiments and steak sauces were missing and when we told the waiter, he was very rude saying let him put all the food down first, but the condiments / steak sauces where all still missing and have to after 10 minutes of our food getting cold we had to ask another waiter who promptly brought them to our table. The cocktails were absolutely awful, the worst I’ve ever had. I should had really complained about the drinks, so switched to soft drinks instead.

    Very pretty restaurant and good location with views of tower bridge. Service started off well but waited 30 mins to get our bill and had to get up to grab the waiter. The breakfast deal was good value but lacked the extra touches of a proper English breakfast. The pancakes arrived barely warm and tough, not enough fruit and too much yoghurt. Just didn't live up to the ivy's reputation.

    The ambiance were good. The location is great. Service and waiters were great but I wasn't very satisfied with the meat. It was very tough, and there were a lot of nerves in it, likely due to the animal being stressed before slaughter. It was like chewing gum.

    Superb experience due on the main to top quality service and attention to detail. Staff (Brandon, Macy and Beatrice) were absolutely spot on. They made our children very happy and in turn made the parents happier! Food choice and quality great, value only knocked down by one mark due to price of alcoholic drinks which seems to sadly be the norm everywhere nowadays. The Ivy manage to keep staff well trained and know what they are doing. Top quality. Kids build your own sundae should not be missed!!!!

    Booked a table for 4 and was only able to get outdoor seating which we did not mind. Lovely view, food was tasty. Portions were fairly decent. My biggest issue was there was a little mice running around. I pointed this out to the waiter but by his reaction and how the casually walked over to the mice you could tell they were use to it & so did the mice as he kept running in & out & around tables. It was not afraid to be seen.

    First of all, I would like to thank the receptionist who greeted us at the door. She was very helpful because even though 3 of our companions were late for the reservation, she has given us an extra hour of extension for our table. Really unfortunate that I did not get her name. Second, even though we were not sat near the window where we could see the tower bridge, we had an amazing dining experience. Probably it was best that we were not sat in the side of the restaurant that has a view of the tower bridge, because it seemed so busy and there were a lot of people in that part of the restaurant. Food was amazing. Our companions who were from America had high praises for all the food that they ordered. The waiters were all very attentive to our needs. Would visit again next time. 👍🏼

    We booked a table for 2 and we arrived a little early for our booking. We kindly taken to the bar area to wait for our table. The bar area was nice and the bartender was polite and friendly. The dining experience was great, we got a good table next to a window, which was nice. Our server Nelson was very friendly, bubbly and attentive. Throughout the meal check if our food was ok, topping up our drinks, asking if we wanted more drink. We forgot to order a side with one of the mains and ordered it when our food came, but didn’t have to wait long for it to arrive to enjoy with the meal. Overall the whole experience was great, but was made extra special by Nelson.

    Good location and inside is pretty (they committed to a LOOK, all caps intended), but odds are you won’t have a Tower Bridge view. The hostess ignored me and was rude to the couple in front of me (despite not being busy, she made them show proof of a reservation, which they did and she silently poked at her computer and finally motioned for them to follow her). She never bothered to say anything to me, let alone check me in, which, as a result, ended up in The Ivy falsely claiming I didn’t attend my reservation. Anyway, her colleague shows me to my table. Ambiance is nice enough, but despite having a million staff members, service was lacking. I was brought the wrong drink, but since my server never came back until the end of the meal, I couldn’t notify anyone. Food was good, not excellent, but not good enough to overlook the rest of the experience. I wouldn’t return. Avoid.
