Starters soggy, mains over cooked, desert not available due to being a Sunday?
Service indifferent and automatically charged to the bill
Location excellent but go anywhere else. I’ve eaten in many Ivy restaurants in the Uk but this one is Not up to Ivy standard, or any standard really .
Avoid

We had a lovely table and dinner at The Ivy after an afternoon theater performance and a visit to The Tate Modern. The cod and lobster linguini were very tasty, and the chocolate bombe desert was delightful; it is not to be missed! We thoroughly enjoyed the meal and unique ambience near London Bridge. We hope to visit again when we are next in London.

Good food at a fair price. Our waiter was miserable ! Not once did he ask how our food was or indeed produce a smile. As we were leaving the headcwaitervaporoached our table to ask if everything was ok, bit late in the day !

We had a very good time at the Ivy Tower Bridge, We were a party of 8, one of whom arrived Latisha and two of whom had to leave by 9.25 but the IVY coped beautifully with us. We had a full menu which was excellent. And we recommend the house wine.

I managed to get a late booking here for valentines evening and it really was fantastic.
Service was outstanding, very attentive and topping up drinks when required but gave us our personal space..
Would definately return when I'm in London again.

Lovely decor, soft lighting, poor table alignment as we were side onto another couple and hard to ignore them and have an intimate conversation. Problem with husbands steak dealt with superbly, replaced without any fuss. Tasty food and reasonable value for money. Will go again if in the area. Recommended.

We had the most amazing afternoon lunch celebrating my mums 70th Birthday. Our waitress was just the best and I’m afraid I’ve forgotten her name. She was very attentive to us and made it extra special for my mums experience.
I can’t recommend The Ivy enough

The blackened cod and the zucchini Fries came out Luke warm, the staff were quick to apologise and the next replacement plates were as they originals should have been. Discounted off a desert and zucchini fries, but I feel a manager should have stepped in

We booked for a family celebration and the Restaurant and location were excellent, we had views of Tower Bridge and the Tower which were ideal for a special occasion. The restaurant is lovely and staff were attentive but not overly so. Food was very good, the menu had enough dishes for everyone to choose including daily specials. I would definite recommend to friends and colleagues.

Staff at reception did not make us feel welcome as we came in with a double pram, which I warned them about whilst making the reservation. But I noticed the two ladies being cold with other customers too. The waiters were very nice and accommodated all our requests quickly. Food could have been better quality and cooked better as I had to return the cod due to it being undercooked. Overall ok but could be much better.

Visited the Ivy for breakfast for my 21st birthday, the staff were very welcoming and the food was amazing! They brought out a small cake for my birthday (free of charge) which was a lovely addition to our meal, would highly recommend!

A big pleasant surprise. The food quality was great, and the setting was perfect: a perfect location and the ambiance was great. The only downside was the slow service. We were there for a late lunch (3.30PM on a Saturday) and the meal took 2.5 hours...

But we will definitely return.

The restaurant is situated in an ideal location with views of both Tower Bridge and Tower of London. On entering the restaurant you are greeted by staff with a smile. However, I was not shown to a table rather just pointed in a direction to locate my party that had arrived slightly before me. It took some time for the first order of drinks to be bought to the table, once the order had been taken. Whilst table service started slow it picked up. The scallops were tender, well cooked and tasty and the shepherd pie was nice. However, the brunch menu was limited in that 2 of the party would have preferred to have the fish of the day. Unfortunately, the table next to us were loud and slightly obnoxious but left by the time the main course was delivered.

Our table was ideally placed and we were able to enjoy the views of the bridge and the tower. I would highly recommend the restaurant and look forward to returning.
