We were celebrating my husband’s birthday and after 1 hour we asked the waiter for a 2nd bottle of champagne but he told us we couldn’t have 1 as we had to leave our table in 45 minutes.
That would have been enough time to have drunk the bottle so I was very disappointed !

We are due to be dining with family at another Ivy restaurant next Friday but now we are questioning if we should !

Had an anniversary lunch with my husband there yesterday. Food and service excellent. At the end when they found out it was our special day, we were given a lovely little cake to share. A nice gesture

Great Peach Bellini’s served in a fabulous location. Fantastic service and food ... great value for the standard of food and location.
The outside setting was lovely and the heaters took away the chill.
Next time we are in London we will definitely be back.

I came for the view but went out with an amazing experience. It was a great place to celebrate my wife's achievements. We had the salmons as a starter which was completely amazing, for mains we had Chargrilled Halloumi and the Shepherds pie both outstanding, for dessert the chocolate bomb an amazing surprise.

The service was non-intrusive, on time, and always smiling with a welcoming attitude.

Excellent presentation of table and dishes and the hand sinitizer at the table a great detail during covid times

Definitely what I expected for the price and location.

Well done, I will be back.

Absolutely gorgeous restaurant! We chose Ivy to celebrate our anniversary and it was the perfect decision. The location, view, food and service-everything was on the highest level! Will definitely visit many more times! 10/10 just perfect

I was a bit worried that an Ivy sitting right next to Tower Bridge and looking out onto the Tower of London might be a tourist version of the Ivy I go to in Covent Garden. But the food was still great.

I've lived in London for 30 years, but the view still made me laugh it was so extraordinary. My daughter and I were there to celebrate her final day of uni after a horrible year learning online at home - so I wanted something that made her feel a bit special, and she did grin from ear to ear, (helped by three very good cocktails!).

Service took a bit longer than it should have to get going - about 10 minutes before I could flag someone down to get a drink and a menu. But after that service was good.

I would say the heaters on the terrace weren't doing much, so you do need to bring a layer for the cold as the sun drops.

Terrible service & attitude. Constantly being pushed to order drinks then being pushed to finish your meal so they can have the table. Wouldn’t recommend or go again! Better service & food in Wagamamas for a lot less!

The food was beautifully presented and tasted lovely, as well.
There were some lovely cocktails to choose from.
The staff were incredibly attentive, perhaps a little too much for me at times, but considering this is the worse thing I can say, that's something!

Great location I just wished they had told me when I booked the table at 8.30 that the restaurant was closing at 10. Although we were told by the person that seated us not to worry and we wouldn't be rushed. We were given the menus and expected to order very soon after, were asked if we wanted desert or coffee as our main meal was delivered and then the bill came as we were finishing our main meal. To top it all off our coffee arrived at 5 to 10 at which point the heaters and lights were turned off! This was disappointing to say the least especially as it was my husbands birthday meal with friends we hadn't seen for a long while.

The food was amazing, so happy it was dry and the drinks were nice.

It was upsetting that we was delayed in being sat down and then rushed to get up and leave.

However the overall experience was pleasant!

The food was excellent. It was very hot
and remained so, even though we were outside. The portions are a lot bigger than they look in the photos. Good quality wine & cocktails. Very friendly staff.

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.
