    Hi there, The staff were lovely, attentive, the food was average, a bit disappointed in the salt and pepper squid for starter. The mushroom / truffle linguine as you could hardly taste the truffle flavour.

    Normally the Ivy chain of restaurants are a go-to, reliable option, but this evening that was not the case. The drinks didn't arrive until well after the starters, the service was altogether spotty, and the food was disappointing. The chicken was over cooked and rubbery, the fish flavourless, and the zucchini fritti on the soggy side.

    We had breakfast for 8 people. Luckily we had booked ahead as it was fully booked when we arrived and staff were turning customers away who hadn’t booked. We were promptly seated and our orders taken. I think the breakfast choice is good here and reasonably priced for the amazing location and setting of this particular restaurant. Sone of the food was a little on the cool side when it arrived but it tasted good and was well presented. On the whole a good breakfast.

    Loved this Ivy. The menu was right up my street , so much choice, nothing too fancy. Decor is fabulous. If I could pick any faults then maybe the serving staff are just a bit pushy to take an order . But overall it’s ace.

    Our experience was not great… food was tasty. Waiter was unhelpful and although quick with the service it was too quick and felt rushed. Also he was not interested in our table as we weren’t ordering high priced food and drinks.

    Evening spoilt when we arrived early by attitude of person on front desk. Told us in a rather off hand manner to come back in half an hour. Had to ask 3 different staff members for ice. Eventually came thanks to professional manager. Then disgusted by a mother at a near by table changing her baby's clothes on the floor of the restaurant. Your staff saw this taking place but did nothing to stop it. Brought this to the attention of the manager who wanted to make us "happy" before we paid our bill. He brought us 2 glasses of prosecco. We leave our response to this gesture to you.

    The duck salad and the blackened cod were both tasty. More choice on the cocktail menu would be better. At times, the waiting staff were not attentive to clear out plates or to offer us the dessert menu. Overall, a good restaurant, we would come back again.

    The food was great but the staff at the front of house looked stressed out when we got there and the wait staff brought all our food together (including what we’d ordered as desert, we actually got that first). They also forgot to bring us more of the cream for our cream teas which we asked for and we needed up waiting over 20 minutes for it, by which time we thought we’d move on and get drinks elsewhere.

    The food was nice the service was bad, the price was expensive, we wanted tap water before we could say tap water bottled water came up 2 bottles £9 that’s the fastest we got served all evening, even our £2.99 bottle of lidls wine was £36 it’s a rip of, the out look was nice, I have been before but will think twice on going a 3rd time

    It’s my second time at Ivy’s, I’m from Paris, I liked this restaurant the first time so I came with my husband this time (first time for him). Everything was fine until I saw a mouse running in the middle of the restaurant, I told to the waiter and he seems used to see that kind of scene, we were really chocked by this, I can’t imagine the kitchen, I stopped eating I let almost all my meal untouched because I was really disgusted. The waiter just told me that this is normal « they come from outside », I’m sorry but this is not normal, especially for a restaurant like yours, with this standing and these prices. It’s not ok. We paid 86£ and didn’t enjoy our meals.

    We are familiar with The Ivy “chain” and love it. We were in London for the weekend and had a “gift voucher” so had pre-booked at the Tower Bridge restaurant. Outstanding location, fantastic service and food as brilliant as anticipated. A most enjoyable occasion from start to finish- yes it’s expensive but definitely worth it.

    We arrived an hour early and were seated outside, fabulous view of Tower Bridge. We ordered our drinks and then food, however cheese soufflé was over cooked (only just), blackened cod sauce was a little sickly, broccoli under cooked and sirloin steak was over cooked. Fried zucchini and cheese and biscuits absolutely delicious! Had to ask several times for my Prosecco to be refilled and for the bill hence the three stars at just under £190 I expect perfection on the basics, especially when I can visit our restaurants in the area.

    Shockingly bad food, the burger was from a freezer, the chips were inedible but the service was dreadful, I had to get up time and time again as the head waitress was completely oblivious to anyone in the restaurant and spent her time at her station fiddling with nothing , when approached she was unfriendly and useless

    Table of four, one person waited 15 mins or so for her meal after the other three arrived. Then asked for parmesan and waited another 5 mins. These times are not exaggerated. For the amount of effort they put in to being cool would be nice if they were efficient too.
