Is my first visit to the restaurant, but I’m very impressed by it. The food is delicious, and we have the view of the river thames and tower bridge. It is just beautiful. Good choice for everyone and visitors to have a nice dinner out there.

Wonderful experience. Friendly, attentive and formal service without being pretentious. Our waitstaff was just great, he was very engaging and lively to chat with. We had the chateaubriand, which was mm-mm-goooood! Also a standout was the pithivier, don't hesitate, just order it! Don't forget the view - right at Tower Bridge, which is gorgeous lit up at night.

ambiente molto bello, elegante e rilassato, servizio di ottimo livello e molto professionale, cibo (menù francese) adeguato alle aspettative. Il pezzo forte comunque è la vista notturna del Tower Bridge che si gode dalla vetrata sul lungoTamigi. Prezzi da standard londinesi. Vivamente consigliato

Really enjoyed the set lunch and was great value. My only comment which I did question at the time was why my friend had a measured glass of wine while mine was free poured. There was definitely a difference. The reason given was it was quicker to free pour from the bottle.

Le Pont is consistently good, so I had no hesitation about making a reservation there for our anniversary dinner.
From our initial greeting, to our departure, everything was smooth sailing, and as always, the food was excellent.
I have to give a special mention to our Kir Royales, not everywhere can you get the right mix of Champagne and Cassis, but at Le Pont, they get it right.
I have no qualms about recommending Le Pont to everyone.

Evening started with some well mixed cocktails. Food was great as always. Staff were polite and friendly. There was a small team in the main dining room and they could have been a little more attentive. However we were there till later than we intended, the dining room had emptied, never once did they hint for us to make a move. Overall a great evening.

Went to the restaurant to celebrate my mums 80th birthday and the service was very poor. Great shame as I do like this restaurant, however we really felt let down by the experience. We will not be going to the pont again, there are far better restaurants in London where we will rerun my mums birthday.

My wife booked the restaurant as part of a 20th Anniversary present which included a stay nearby at La Lit (an SLH Hotel) - we went later and opted for the set menu which was good value at approx £35 each for 2 courses. The starter was lovey - huge fresh prawns the main looked lovely (chicken) but was lukewarm - we asked for it to be hotter and it arrived back 10 mins later exactly the same - the manager then stepped in and sorted it and we received a piping hot and lovely tasting dish. There was no acknowledgement of the occasion even though my wife had told them (the week before we had dined at Coq D'Argent and had a lovely surprise of a birthday dessert (it was my friend's 50th). To be fair the manager did come and apologise and gave us a glass of champagne each and promised to get it sorted in future.

Lovely position by the Thames. Good food and choice of wine. There were patio heaters if you sat outside which were very efficient. Would recommend this restaurant with super views of Tower Bridge.

Deeply disappointed with this restaurant. The food was ok (nothing outstanding), while the service was awful. It was incredibly overbearing (wine refills after each sip) and aggressively so - I had wine spilled on my feet just from the attempt at quick refills.

Between the poor service, the mediocre food, and the high price, I would not attend nor recommend.

Service very slow despite restaurant being nearly empty. Food disappointing. General lack of attention to everything - even dirty finger prints on mirrored walls. This used to be one of the most reliable, high quality experiences in London. So disappointed.

We had the £30 Evening standard menu which was great value for money and more than sufficient sized portions for a 3 course meal. The terrine was a huge portion and across the table we had both chicken & fish options, all of which were perfectly cooked and presented. The creme brûlée was delicious and the chocolate fondant looked equally good. Combined with the usual high standard of service, we had a very enjoyable celebratory dinner.

I'm afraid this is the first time I write such a disappointing reviewing. I have been to Le Pont de la Tour before a few times and had enjoyed food. Hence when I booked the table to treat my high school friend's family who I haven't seen for 10 years, I didn't hesitate to go to Le Pont de la Tour. I had confidence in the food and service there and they had expected to experience some amazing food.

The big mistake clearly was to go for the Evening Standard menu. It's understandable when they create a more affordable menu, choices would be limited. But I was literally embarrassed when the main course was presented to my guests. The portion was so small that I wouldn't believe it was meant to be main course. Tiny pieces of chicken and cod. On kid's menu, the tomato salad with avocado was literally tomato and avocado with hardly any sauce or taste to it. The chocolate fondant and frozen yoghurt was yummy but literally one spoonful.

Food on the plate spells "yeah you went for a £30 set menu and there you go you ashamed yourself by making such choice". I left the table, paid nearly £150 for 3 Eventing Standard Meals and a kid's meal. Guess what? I bought myself deep regrets and embarrassment.

I wish someone in the restaurant can read this and tell me why a £30 per person meal is delivered in such an appalling quantity??? As a repeat customer, I was utterly disappointed.
