License runs out at 9pm outside so don't book a late table if you want to be on the terrace. Last table seated outside at 7pm.

The food was different was excellent. Everything we ate starts, mains and desserts were all very good. We were a group of four and had the truffle arancini for starters. They were delicious. I would've preferred some sauce with it, but that's a minor flaw. We considered ordering more of it, but didn't want to spoil our appetite. We each ordered different mains (they can make any starter into a main if you ask them): scallops, Keralan curry, grilled halloumi, tempura prawns. Each item tasted different and each was great. For dessert, we had the chocolate bomb, pistachio and fig, and apple crumble. Again, dessert blew our minds. Couldn't decide which one was best. Because I am pregnant and due in 2 weeks, they even gave me an extra dessert with a candle and a piece of chocolate that said congratulations. Our server, Maria, was very nice and gave us great suggestions as well.

Great location - we were seated outside overlooking the tower bridge ! Can not get better than that.
Service was a little un-coordinated I felt , like the starters came before the appetising nibbles, the drinks came in a random order and some had to be ordered twice to be brought. When they came and the food came they were great to taste , no complaints on taste . But it’s only the first time that has happened to me with Ivy so it may be just a odd day for them. Will be visiting again for sure.

A wonderful place especially for a special occasion. The food is fantastic and the drinks are lovely and made with added touches of flowers and we had cucumber round the inside of the glass, gorgeous! My daughter and I are vegan and we had the curry which was so nice and mango sorbet. The waiter was very attentive and friendly and made the occasion much more enjoyable. Definitely worth a visit and highly recommended!

Great Sunday brunch at the Ivy Tower Bridge. A pity we didn’t get a terrace table but were seated by the window with nice views. Excellent menu choices and very attentive service.

An excellent breakfast. Arrived earlier than booked but immediately welcomed and shown to a table. On booking I mentioned it was my wife’s birthday and they provided a complementary cake which was a lovely gesture

This experience wasnt anything special, the staff seem very unorganised we had a booking yet had to wait outside while they found us our table, the table was terrible small up against a window that had a work shelf were staff were taking orders from, it is ridiculous. Food is decent but not worth what you are paying for had much much better. Loads of staff but no one really paying any attention to anyone just rushing around. Wouldnt go back or recommend.

Fabulous setting- we sat outside for breakfast- very friendly staff- service a bit slow- we had to wait a while for our drinks and toast came out a bit slow. However this did not put us off- we would definitely go back

My guest and I enjoyed our lunch experience tremendously. The food and wine were excellent. We were particularly impressed with the way the waiting staff who served us engaged with us - warm and friendly but always totally professional. We were also impressed with the Covid measures within the restaurant even though it prevented us from sitting at my favourite table this time!

Lovely food as always but you need to sort out yours bookings more appropriately, we had booked a week in advance when we arrived we was seated at the back of the restaurant with no one there, there was no atmosphere, we asked to be moved and had to wait 30 minutes and people off the street were walking in and getting amazing seating.

Lovely meal for anniversary.
Staff were very sweet and attentive, food was scrummy.
Only slight bad comment was we had to ask for the veggie menu which i thought was silly esp in this day and age with tons of veggies about... I only knew about it being separate as saw online earlier. Veggie options, once seen, were fab!
