Venue and service were very good - food was average for price. Nothing wrong with the food but fairly bland.

Lovely ambience and surroundings. Food excellent. Service generally attentive however we did feel a bit forgotten about after the main course. This did not spoil our evening however - we were in no rush and enjoying the atmosphere.

We had the most lovely evening at The Ivy Tower Bridge. We were visiting as we had an Ivy voucher as a wedding gift. Great food, ambience and service. Views of Tower Bridge at night were amazing. Special thanks to Rebecca for looking after us and making our evening special. We love this place and will be back ♡

Lovely food, but very strange and pushy service ruined the night. Unfortunately found the waiter very hard to understand and awkwardly kept hovering to recommend food and then ask us how the food was

Never disappoints. Only bad thing is - with shepherd's pie this good, I am reluctant to try anything else! :-)
Particularly good service this time - we were in a hurry (to catch a flight), our lovely waitress put the order straight through and ensured bill presented at the same time.

We have visited a few times and enjoyed it each time but the service was very poor this time, so much so that we cancelled an ordered bottle of wine because it wasn't brought to the table in time for the meal.

Fantastic place, delicious food and wonderful views.
We were celebrating a special event and our waiter was very polite and helpful. Overall The service was very good and attentive, however the only one bad experience is when waiter asked us to pay service charge of over £30 in cash! We did not have cash on us and had to ask our guests to get some. We wanted to pay service charge and offer some extra tip too, however this request left me and my husband with a bit of a bad taste about the whole experience... however overally good experience.

When in London I often choose the ivy tower bridge as I routinely find a great location, good food and really friendly helpful staff. I took a colleague this time who hadn’t been there previously and who also really enjoyed. Thanks for yet another great experience Ivy at Tower Bridge, keep up the great work !

Loved the ambiance and our table next to the window gave us a great view of the bridge and Tower.
Friends had recommended fish and chips and shepherd pie so that’s what we ordered. We were not disappointed and enjoyed every bit of our evening out.

Don't come to this branch! I've been to other branches of The Ivy, including Chelsea, Soho and Marylebone, and the Tower Bridge branch is by far the worst one. The service is poor - the waiter didn't ask us what to drink and we needed to remind him; He didn't speak English well and addressed our female guest as 'sir'; he took away the starter plates before we were done and didn't ask if we had finished; we asked for a medium-cooked steak but got a well-done one and we had to ask twice for a water refill. We are very disappointed at this experience and we wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone!

This is my second visit and it exceeding all expectations once again! From the exceptional staff who are attentive but not continually present, the magnificent iconic view, the decor and the food. I have recommended this place to family and will return on many more occasions

Great service and friendly staff. Good choice of cocktails which were half the price of the ones we had the night before at a different establishment and just as good! My fish and chips was hot and tasty, the prawn and monkfish curry according to my friend was the best curry she had had. And to top it off my apple tart with flaming calvados was to die for. We were in main part of restaurant which was very busy just around the corner nearer to the bar it seemed quieter. Would definitely go again.

Rib eye steak very fatty and not very hot which for price paid was disappointing. Rest of mains good and desserts were outstanding. Service outstanding and ambience/noise level on side we were sat was excellent. When leaving, I noticed that the other half of the restaurant was very much louder, so lucky us!

Amazing place to go and celebrate, from the time we arrived to the time we left we were not made to feel just like another customer, we were treated as if we were extremely special. Can not wit to go back!

Given the wrong dinners, some of us then eating dinner whilst others still waiting for correct dinner. Lost our coats in the clock room which were then found in a pile on the floor.
