Food was ok, but nothing above average. Lamb was very tough and the vegetables were verging on uncooked. I'm all for al dente, but beans were 'stringy' and decidedly not cooked on any level.

Pudding was ok but again nothing outstanding. Frozen berries is an interesting concept but these were so frozen they were again verging on inedible. Non negotiable service charge of £12 was also very steep given the service was ok but again not exceptional. Given the price being charged for the decidedly average meal I was not impressed at having to pay a further £12 just to have someone bring it to me...

Had a very nice early evening dinner with my 11 years old grandson and our service was lovely and front of house staff were also delightful. I’ve been to this restaurant before always before going to see something at the Bridge Theatre.

Had a nice evening at the Ivy TB. Lovely ambience and seat. Food nice, feel it's bordering on becoming higher priced than the quality of food is worth - but the selection means it's good menu for many tastes. Service felt a bit rushed and domineering. It would be good if that could be relaxed a touch. But otherwise, very nice and would come back again.

A wonderful dinner, excellent food and we were well attended to by the staff (our waiter was called Salvatore I think, he was great). We were initially placed on the side part of the restaurant, but on request got swiftly moved to a table with a view of Tower Bridge and the Thames. Would certainly recommend.

Over the two courses we had in a group of 4 we had several items that never arrived. Which was more frustrating because as soon as the food arrived the wait staff disappeared. Service was poor throughout. Food was ok but nothing to get excited about, and price did not match quality. Wasn’t overly busy but was still loud, presumably the acoustics are bad.

A business lunch for 5 people. Great location & excellent service, food is good but not exceptional.
What really frustrates is that main courses do not come with any accompaniments even at the high prices this place charges.

Gorgeous food and lovely staff. Beautiful surroundings. My only issue was that my teapot let the tea go cold, although if I had spoken up I’m sure I could have got a refill. I’m also slightly surprised that unlimited coffee isn’t included in the price.

A delightful experience from the moment we were warmly welcomed at the door. The menu was varied, with a number if options for all tastes, the service was friendly and attentive and the food was well presented, ample and, most importantly, delicious.
The views of Tower Bridge and the river, even on a wet and windy night are beautiful and make the experience complete. I will definitely return when visiting London again.

Have been to this branch before lunchtime but this was a weekend brunch visit. Seated by the window with a lovely view. Scallops as starter ..superb. We had a matinee performance at The Bridge next door and when we pointed out we were tight on time the serving staff were very good at ensuring we weren't late which was really appreciated

We loved this place! It was an anniversary lunch. We had a prawn cocktail as starter and as main course a salmon and smoked haddock fish cake and one halloumi open sandwich. All the dishes were absolutely delicious!
As side dish we ordered some amazing truffle and Parmesan chips.
Service was well-timed and friendly and the drinks were affordable. We love the very professional waitress Daniela!
In the end they even surprised us with an anniversary cake, candle included!
It was a very satisfying experience, we definitely would recommend the Ivy Tower Bridge to anyone who goes to London.

We had a reservation for 8.30 and were left waiting for 25 minutes with no explanation. Other couples that arrived after us were being seated after we arrived. This seemed to be happening to other guests too. I appreciate sometimes the table isn't ready but we were given no explanation and no apology and not even given the option to sit at the bar so were just waiting whilst being in the way of service and other guests.

The food was ok but the evening had been dampened a bit by this point.

Great restaurant, good staff, prompt service and great food. Stayed for hours after our lunch at the lovely bar! Front of house near main entrance very busy and bit noisy and buzzy, but back of restaurant was bit better for a chatty lunch. Asked to change table on arrival and promptly and happily moved by staff :)

Service was fine and the food was OK. Nothing to write home about. Brunch options were fairly limited in my opinion, I’ve had better brunch at other places for the same £££

Great food. Twice now the service and kitchen have been disappointing. Most recently on 10 Jan my wife and I waited over 30min for our mains. Later, my dessert was served and then my wife didn’t receive hers. She had to wait another 5min for her cheese board to arrive. Which is not great when there are just two of you having a dinner together.
Last time I was there was for my birthday. My wife arrange a cake, but it was delivered to the table while my she was at the ladies. So I sat for 5min with cake by myself.
Overall the place is great. But it doesn’t live up to the Ivy name, and is a questionable choice for a special night out.

Been to the Ivy in Brighton and this place is just as lovely. Such friendly attentive staff which makes such a difference. The service was swift, no pressure to finish and go and the food was beautiful. Do try the duck starter and the smoked salmon starter, good sized portions, then i would really recommend the salmon with broccoli and cream plus the fish cakes with beautiful chunky chips. Unfortunately there was no room for the desserts which was a shame but do also try some cocktails. Looking forward to eating here again. Lovely staff and lovely food, made for a lovely lunch.

Very lovely welcome and helpful reception.
Was given an excellent table in the window overlooking Tower Bridge.
Attention to detail was very good - a treat brought to the table for my husband's birthday was a nice touch.
Price was what I expected.
