The food was delicious and the restaurant well located but the ambiance was not as I expected. We were 4 friends in our 30s and were asked to "keep it down", we were probably laughing a bit much but nothing vulgar or out of line. Clearly a restaurant for over 50s (and quiet) and for romantic evening - a shame as it could have become smth trendy and much friendlier.

We use this restaurant whenever we visit the Bridge Theatre either before or after the show. The set menu is excellent value and delicious! I had the beef onglet and the other three diners had the fish. All very good. The service is always good, very welcoming, efficient and pleasant. If we lived closer we would go more often.

Fabulous beautifully prepared fresh tasting food enjoyed in this modern restaurant only one minutes walk from the hustle and bustle of Tower Bridge but a haven off peace and quiet. Good wine, outstanding service and a chef that certainly knows his art. We cannot rate Tom Simmons too highly - a total gem and a fabulous find.

We thought this was great. We went after seeing a performance at The Bridge theatre - it works well for that. Very friendly and relaxed service and atmosphere. Really good food (from the marmite butter through burrata and wonderful “fish and chips “. Clear, interesting, fresh tastes and combinations. Will return

If there is better fine dining for a reasonable price on London I have not found it. This place is simply the best value awesome food in town.

Coming from North Herts we had to cancel during the period of the Beast from the East so we finally tried again and were not disappointed. We were warmly welcomed, had excellent, friendly service and delicious food. Nothing was too much trouble. We will be back I'm sure

We keep coming back here - it never disappoints. this is a gem of quality food at good prices - we just worry that when word gets out it will be swamped and we will never find a table again. Lovely olives and sour dough bread. Beef Onglet was new on the menu and absolutely delicious.

We chose the set lunch which was good value for the standard of the food.
Small quibbles are it was odd to repeat artichoke in both one of the 3 starters and mains which made it a more limited choice unless you were a big artichoke fan
Risotto was excellent
The chips we shared as a side for an additional £5 were a bit strange not unpleasant but more like wafers of potato than chips although from what the waiter said they were very very popular

It was a quiet Tuesday so not a lot of atmosphere. Staff were nicely attentive not over the top
The restaurant is pleasant light and airy upstairs

Amazing food. We are fortunate to eat at many lovely restaurants around the world. The food here ranks amongst the top 10. Amazing flavours. Only negative is I found the wine list a bit restricted.

This was my second visit, the first being shortly after they opened. Food, service and atmosphere are still all consistently excellent. We had the set pre/post theatre menu and tasted all the starters between us - the fish cake was possibly our favourite but all recommended. The Cod loin main was superb - sadly we all had the same, so can’t comment on the other choices. The sides of The Worlds Best ‘Chips’ (they are not really Chips as we usually know them, more a multi layered construction) and decadent green beans, poached in butter, were exceptional. A very good wine list starts at around £30.

The food was fantastic, starters, multiple main courses all very positive feedback. Only blemish was the small cheesecake on the pre theatre menu - figured they were short of cheesecake. Overall though, would go back time & time again.

This was our third visit to Tom Simmons each as a pretheatre meal prior to visiting The Bridge Theatre. We had the pre theatre menu which isn't the cheapest around but delicious and not too filling. The previous time we had been seated downstairs which I didn't like but I noticed that they now have a large table laid there diagonally and so avoided small tables being positioned under the stairs or next to the disabled toilet. This time we were upstairs which was much more pleasant. Service attentive and a most enjoyable meal.

Greatly enjoyed the mushroom croquette, the jerusalem artichoke veloute, and a delicious cod loin with cauliflower puree, sauted spinich and golden raisins. Nicely prepared and sauced followed by a chocolate mousse with raspberry sorbet. Memorable.

As always the food was outstanding, beautifully presented, with delicious flavours, and the service was friendly and courteous. The only thing I would complain about is the minimal amount of wine you get when you buy an individual glass. We should have complained at the time really - but we were so busy chatting. The first glass can't have been even 125ml, assuming this is what is meant to be served? We ordered a second glass (as so little in the first) and this was an amount we would expect for 125 ml. But we have noticed on previous occasions that the amount isn't what you'd expect for 125ml.

The food in this restaurant really is very good . I eat out a lot an it is one of my favourites. Quality ingredients and amazing flavours and not too "mucked about with" as with some top restaurants. The staff are friendly and helpful. The lunch deal is very good value. Only slight negative is the decor which is a bit bland and not very loved. With regards to the food and staff 10 out of 10 though.

Saturday lunch time at Tom Simmons was calm and relaxing. We had the lunch set menu which was fantastic value. Very warm and welcoming service. The food was very good and beautifully presented. Only comment was the wild mushroom risotto was tad over salted for my taste but the restaurant was very kind to remove it from our bill without any prompting. Would be keen to revisit soon.

Lovely staff, great food but the design, decor and music felt like you were in a travel lodge restaurant which detracted from the overall experience and left us feeling overcharged for the privilege considering the amazing food you can get in London for a fraction of the price.
