Location right next door to The Bridge Theatre: ideal! They understood need for meal to be served quickly (ironically, the creme brulee took ages, and yet it was cold!).

Great food. Service was good but starter and main course was brought out very quickly making the evening feel rushed and that had eaten too much in short space of time. Courses need to be spread out better.

STAY AWAY !
Very , very bad and unfriendly service . This applies to all staff members .
Food is nothing special , imagine basic restaurant food but in gourmet sizes (very small).
You cant even see the bridge from inside .

Your money will be better spent at mcdonalds

Cocktails were weak
The intermediate service - wine service poor, cutlery service poor
And main wine bottle not served and water not topped up.
food excellent though and main waiter was good
Also £30 bottle of wine was rather rough

It was our 7th anniversary and we requested a table with a good view, and they didn’t disappoint! Had a lovely window table overlooking Tower Bridge and the city’s sky scrapers all lit up against the night sky - it was perfect.
The food was amazing and the service was the best we’ve experienced - very tentative staff!

Really enjoyed our meal at The Ivy Tower Bridge. Food was lovely, staff very attentive. My only problem was our table for two was very close to the next table, ward hard to have private conversation for us and for those at the next table.

Lovely meal. Only crit; inadequate veggie selection on main menu , ( shepherds pie) and that was already off. Had to ask for separate menu for my friend. Otherwise all very good. Lovely waitress.

I would not use this as a pre-theatre venue again as it was too rushed. The waiter, unnecessarily we thought, made us concerned by saying that 90 mins might not be long enough for 2 courses (starter and main). In the end, the timing was OK, but only just. The starters were very good but the mains were just OK we thought.

It took is over 2 hours to have one course and took 30mins to get our drinks

Food was ok but I came away feeling decidedly let down. Other Ivy’s we have visited were much better

This is the second time I have had lunch at The Ivy Tower Bridge and it was just as good as the first time. The food is lovely and service excellent. I think the price is reasonable considering the restaurant and its fabulous location.

Beautiful place. Great view. Dress code is not enforced ore hoodies and sweat pants are considered Business Casual. Menue could have a few more options and the portions are not that big. I belive the price come with the location.
I liked it even though i did not get my window seat.

Disappointing. They didn’t have our table ready at the booked time. Service was rude and inattentive. At one point mixing still and sparkling water and then not bringing fresh still water until the second time of asking, which itself took 10 mins. Fish was watery which affected the mayo. And don’t order olives for a table of four if you all want to have at least 2. I’ve been to some lovely Ivy’s. Sadly this wasn’t one of them. To top it all off, after noting that they wouldn’t be held responsible for losing anything in the cloakroom - small print on the ticket after you’ve given your items to them - it took them 10 mins to find my friend’s hat. Great that it’s next to the Bridge Theatre but I’d suggest there are other better places nearby.

Absolutely disgusted with the way we were treated you need to speak to your manager Andy if that’s what his name was he was not professional at all I will never ever be coming back and the food was terrible considering what we paid. Will never recommend this restaurant to anybody. Being told your getting the bill now because we need the table back is disgraceful not when your spending nearly £300.

We really enjoyed this restaurant for a special family birthday. It was relaxed but a little bit formal at the same time which suited us well. We were very well looked after by the staff and the food was excellent - particularly good for us as all 5 of us are not meat eaters. We had plenty of time to enjoy the occasion beginning at 5pm booking through to 7.30pm - it did not feel at all rushed. The only slight issue we had was that our table had not been set for 4 people not 5 and the pepper grinder had zero peppercorns in it! Hardly a disaster. Both these things were quickly resolved. Would highly recommend The Ivy, Tower Bridge.

Questo ristorante è semplicemente MERAVIGLIOSO!
Il cibo è ottimo ed estremamente curato,
vista sul Tower Bridge e sui grattacieli della City.
Avevo segnalato nella prenotazione che sa trattava di un'occasione speciale e ringrazio ancora tantissimo lo staff per aver reso questa cena veramente unica, grazie al tavolo che hanno scelto per noi e alla sorpresa che hanno organizzato con il dessert.

We had a lovely pre-theatre dinner, the staff knew our time-table and kept a close eye on foor and drinks, which meant we could just relax and enjoy ourselves as we were two couple having a good catch-up post-wedding evening out - loved it all and in the original Ivy spirit lined to theatre

I have been here several times for lunch and dinner and this is the 3rd time for afternoon tea which is delicious. We improvise on the tea by starting off with a lovely cocktail first and generally retire after for a glass of champagne or 2 in the bar. The staff are always smart , attentive and friendly. This Ivy is my favourite not least because of the super location . Cannot fault

I visited this restaurant with my friend, I can honestly say it was perfect, I ordered the breast of chicken which was cooked perfectly along with the creamed spinach, delicious.
The staff were lovely and the restaurant itself had a lovely atmosphere, we'll definitely be returning.

What a wonderful load of staffs, so kind and well behaved, which is needed for a fine dining restaurant. Made my friend comfortable on my reservation even though I was late. Food was good, was delivered to me exactly the way I wanted it.

Overall I would definitely recommend it.

I visited the Ivy, Tower Bridge, on Sunday 6th October with my partner. I ordered the monkfish and prawn curry which was delicious! My partner order the rib eye steak to later find they didn’t have any available and could he order something else or choose an alternative steak. We ordered some cocktails and the waitress delivered the wrong cocktail to us. I booked our table online and mentioned it was for a birthday and nothing was done. Overall experience was a 7/10, I am disappointed because I thought the service would have been slightly better for London prices, infact I had a better experience at the Norwich Ivy.

Having been to the Ivy Market Grill and also the 'real' Ivy I thought that this would be good experience as we were celebrating a 60th birthday in the area.
I don't think that this one is as good as the others Ivy venues that we have visited.
The venue is very fragmented and separated into different areas, we were taken right to the back of the restaurant and had no view at all, even though the front of the building overlooks the river.
We did flag up the it was a 60th birthday lunch and although other diners were brought mini cakes with candles etc, no mention was made to us.
And the yolk of my egg was solid!
