    The Ivy Tower Bridge never disappoints. The staff are friendly & welcoming. We went for the set-menu which was varied and delicious. My only criticism would be that The Ivy is following the trend and serving its dishes in bowls. Had I known I would have asked for it to have been served on a plate. Otherwise, great food, great service & a great atmosphere.

    We dined here for lunch. Beautiful restaurant with amazing views, but the food was mediocre. The beef tartare was a bit chewy; our pastas were bland and hamburger was overcooked and dry.

    We got asked if we wanted drinks probably within the first 5 minutes of sitting down. And drinka arrived straight away. We then sat waiting for someone to take our food order for 35-40 minutes. There were other customers waiting that arrived before us still waiting to give food order. We also got put right at the back of restaurant near the bar and kitchen. My wife has been to this restaurant on various occasions and told me all about it and so that's why I booked for our 10th wedding. She said that it was not like it when she had been before but seemed not as well run.

    Food was good, drinks were good and there was a lovely atmosphere. 10% service charge was added to our bill which would have been fine if the service was great, unfortunately the side of potatoes cane just as I finished my dinner and we had to ask for sugar when our coffee was served

    We arrived a little early in the middle of a cloudburst and staff could not have been more helpful in difficult circumstances, particularly as the terrace had to be evacuated. Waiting staff delightful and made the end of a birthday celebration day special.

    The Ivy it's self is a beautiful place, but all of the staff we interacted with were professional, friendly and very well dressed. I had noted that I was coeliac when booking the reservation which a member of staff came and discussed all my options with a great knowledge of the menu. The food and drink was delicious and beautifully presented. Everything was fairly priced and worth every penny and more. I will hopefully get to visit again soon.

    Great service. Moved my booking without fuss due to me having to change my journey due to an incident on the train. The waitress was lovely and the food was really tasty. We chose from the lunch menu. I had the Whipped Ricotta with Pistachio to start and the Chicken Caesar Salad for main. Good portion sizes and very tasty.

    We had a very nice 3 course lunch from set nenu, which was excellent value. Mackerel starter was very tasty. Salmon main was well cooked and presented and was delicious., as were the desserts. The service was excellent and we thought that the birhday treat presented to my guest was a nice touch and greatly appreciated. Overall we had a wonderful dining experience

    I was offered 3 wrong main courses before my starter was served. Eventually got main course after being there over an hour from my original order. Asked for my wife's starter to come with my main course...didn't happen...sent back twice then gave up. This type of thing was happening at the tables around me. It got to be funny in the end.

    We were accommodated outside easily when we arrived an hour early for our table, having been drenched in a heavy shower. The service was polite, well organised and we were served in a timely way. The food was tasty and satisfying. We received an extra free dessert dish as we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. The facilities were clean and well signposted. All staff we had contact with were courteous and seemed to be well trained.

    We arrived at 6pm, allowing plenty of time to have our pre-Theatre dinner. We were seated at the back, which was fine. We were not given the pre-Theatre menu. This took almost 10 further minutes and it was then that we were able to order our drinks and water, on this very hot day. It took ages for my starter to arrive - indeed I saw both courses arrive at the same time, but our server sent them back and at least another 5mins passed before my starter finally arrived. I made short shrift of it as I was hungry. It was shortly before 7pm when our main Course arrived, allowing half an hour to eat, order and eat a dessert and get into the Bridge Theatre, to our seats. Less than a minute before the play began. This was not my idea of an enjoyable pre-show dinner. The Server, who was very pleasant, but working alone, knew we were going to the Theatre. I live locally and have been a fairly regular visitor to The Ivy since you opened. I celebrated my 70th Birthday there 3 years ago. Since the beginning, there have been annoying problems, virtually every time I have visited. It can be something simple such as having to ask several times for condiments, mayonnaise etc. It was even Afternoon Tea arriving the wrong way round, with no cutlery and no milk for the tea. It is an increasingly growing list - and locals are not at all as delighted as we once were. ‘The Ivy’ it most certainly is not.

    My first visit, using a voucher my sister and brother in law bought me and my husband for Christmas. Sadly, my husband passed away in May, so I visited with my 2 sisters. The restaurant was very lively, too noisy for me really, but the food and service couldn't be faulted. We chose the Set Menu and there was enough choice to satisfy us all. We did order side salads to accompany our pasta main courses, but the waiter forgot to put the order through. However, probably just as well, as the pasta was very filling, and very yummy! All in all, it was a good experience, but I do question some people's interpretation of 'smart casual '. Shorts and a football top with grubby trainers aren't my idea of smart casual...I saw at least 2 people dressed like that !!!

Food was good , service was good , all waiters were courteous and helpful but as the restaurant got busier during lunch it was apparent some confusion on service was occurring and some long delays experienced . Overall a pleasant lunch and the delays and mistakes didn’t spoil the occasion .

    Front desk super helpful , managed to get a bar space for pre drinks but bit stressful that u can’t book it as when it’s an occasion you don’t want to wing it! Lovely table location - we had originally booked outside but due to heat changed to inside as the help team had said full air con, however should have kept outside booking as they opened the bi gold doors! So we were hot without a breeze. Staff all great and food was amazing
