We had such a lovely night - the main reason - heating outside and the fantastic service from the staff. Second to none. We choose to go to this restaurant every single time we go to London - it has become a highlight - the staff excelled themselves on Monday night which was cold and very wet but you'd never have known. They couldn't have done enough for us. Oh yes - just so you know we'd a delicious meal too! Well done all in such difficult times. We will be back soon.

The Portuguese lady I cannot remember her name, was very lovely. She took care of me as I have a nut allergy and made sure she did all she could to make sure I was safe during my visit. Thankyou very much for a pleasant evening !

I loved Ivy tower bridge restaurant, but it was very chilly outside. Although it was given blankets and heating was on, it was not enough. Besides, it was everything perfect the food and staff are amazing. I really recommended.

As my experience the previous week hadn’t been as good as it could have been, I was contacted by Mattia the assistant manager after that visit and he welcomed me on 29th April. My friend and I had a complimentary glass of Prosecco and Mattia came over several times during the meal to ask how things were.

That was very good service and I thoroughly recommend the Ivy Tower Bridge.

We were seating in the corner and it was very cold, the heating should go all the way to to the end of the seating area as the area at the end is the coldest. There was another couple next to us and they came and left before us. It made the dinner very unpleasant because of that.

The Ivy are doing their best to accommodate outdoor dining but in wet windy weather its no as enjoyable as usual. We felt rushed as we were reminded a number of times about our 1 hour 45 minutes limit. I will be back but waiting until they open indoors

Turned up 30 mins early at 11.30 to an empty restaurant. Weren’t allowed to sit down for a coffee and wait for our friends as that would have started the 2 hour clock on our table. They said it was because they had other reservations- were they going to call the next group and ask them to come 30 min earlier? Of course not - stupid

Served wine that was off. When we told the waiter they offered a different wine to taste which was great. Then they brought the original wine back!

Food disappointing

Lovely waitress though

We booked for 11am to have breakfast, as the restaurant informs you here that breakfast is served until 11.30am. When we got there, we were told that they only have all-day menu and that they are not serving breakfast. There were at least 3 other tables who were there for breakfast, and they all left. When you complain about this, they answer you like “we are not aware what is on Open Table, sorry. Period”.
Apart from that, the lady who serves us was so RUDE, she was answering our questions on the go, she sounded like she did not care if we stayed or not.
In addition, they did not put a note here that dogs were not allowed, but insisted that there is a note here and told us we could not be seated. They only let us sit on the very corner (almost under the rain) and said this is one time only.
Rudeness: 10/10. Accomodation: 0/10

We had a very happy post-Covid lockdown lunch on the terrace at the Ivy. The service was excellent, and the food delicious especially the cheese shuffle, teh chips and the apple tart. It was so good to be out and about again!

Despite the Covid restrictions, the staff handling our dining experience very well.
There were outdoor heaters under the umbrellas and the tables were reasonably spaced out. The food was delicious. Can highly recommend the chocolate bomb for pudding.

As always food & service excellent however had to ask to change table was right at the end with no outdoor heater & no kind of structure to shield from the wind. Apparently they are thinking of putting some kind of glass or Perspex screen. Needs it.

Had a great time, weather was a bit nippy, but that’s due to not being able to eat inside yet, so that totally understandable.
