    The food was lovely. We were not impressed with the service. We were attended to by 3 members of staff and no one of them communicated with us. It seemed an effort for them to even speak. Not one person asked if we enjoyed our meal. We dined from the 1917 menu, which is 2 courses for £19.17 with an option to add a third course. After the 2 courses, the menu was put in front of us with no communication. We asked for the bill at the end of our meal, and then seconds later, a card machine was presented again with no communication. We had to select a tip option on the machine, which we said no to as the service did not deserve a tip only to find after the bill was paid there was still a 12.5% service charge on the bill so they were expecting another tip on top of that which I think is disgraceful. This is the second time we have dined at The Ivy Towel Bridge. The reason we went back was we had a completely different experience the previous time, but unfortunately, venues are only as good as your last experience, and we will not be dining there again. London has so many excellent restaurants which we dined at. I think The Ivy name is not enough to make it a lovely dining experience.

    Party of 6 for lunch. One main course arrived 10 minutes after the others and was inadequately prepared. No explanation as to why. Not consistent with a 13.5% service charge.

    Charming efficient waitress but my gf bread went AWOL and she could not track it so when I finally got some I had more or less finished my course. Not a brilliant menu for anyone both gf and veggie I could not even have the soup . Have eaten with you a few times before and not had a problem. Thanks for the nice tucked away table that was good but with all the hard surfaces the acoustic is not good for anyone with hearing problems. The food I did have was tasty and enjoyable and the restaurant is very attractive and your staff charming

    Service was terrible. Arrived at 3.45, main did not come out until 5.20pm with items missing. Starter - chicken skewers were ice cold think they just got them out the fridge and onto plate and didn’t bother cooking them! Once we finished our mains manager said he would give us our bill with dessert as he needed the table even though it was their fault that we was still there gone 6pm! I was also late back for my parking because the service being slow despite telling them we needed to leave. Not even an apology and then tried to charge us £30 service charge

    Had the champagne afternoon tea. Received a warm welcme and professional service. The afternoon tea was well presented and deicious especially the truffled chicken brioche and the toffee cake. We were seated at a nice corner table with a partial view of Tower Bridge. We were with friends visiting from Germany and it was a perfect afternoon tea experience for them.

    The resturant was very busy and this reflected the service provided and quality of food. Two of us had steak which was luke warm and fatty. We were celebrating an 80th birthday which the resturant were aware of but the usual happy birthday dessert didn't appear. Not my best experience of the Ivy and I would expect more.

    We visited The Ivy as I had vouchers. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The food was delicious. We noticed that our 2 gin and tonics were left off the bill. We mentioned this to the manager when it came to pay and he said the drinks were on him as we had been kind enough to point this out. I wasn’t expecting this and it was a really kind gesture. We will definitely come back. Might try the afternoon tea.

    Overall ok but definitely not as good as the others in Covent Garden, Mayfair or Brighton due to food being barely warm and a feeling that some staff weren't quite as 'on point' as in the others. Birthday treat was a lovely gesture,taste of all food was very good though.

    A fantastic setting in front of Tower Bridge. Been to a number of Ivys and this was the best for food and service. Comparatively service was slow (not a negative comment) but for us this was a benefit as we were able to make the most of the evening but may not suit everybody.

    Lovely restaurant and fabulously attentive staff. Food was lovely apart from cold chips but after a mention to the staff, these were removed from the bill. One complaint would be that the toilet roll holder was broken so not on the wall!
