Everything was great but the woman who was serving our wine Kept forgetting about us so by the end of our meal, we still had half a bottle of wine left and we had to leave the table because the next booking had arrived.

Too often a restaurant with a great view is spoiled by mediocre food and/or service. I have been to City Social both for business and family dining and on all occasions it has been an extremely good experience and would recommend it to anyone.

Came here to celebrate my bonus and it certainly helped pay the bill! That said I did order an expensive bottle of Sancerre... the food was mostly great but my main of ballotine if rabbit I found a bit too salty by the time I was half way through. Still the main event was the view and the company so it was a very enjoyable evening, especially as we ended up in Vertigo bar on the 42nd floor!

I guess I was expecting too much.. Booked a table for a surprise dinner for my boyfriend’s birthday, mainly because of the ambience and the view. I knew the window seat wouldn’t be guaranteed, however, the seat we were seated was too noisy because it was right behind the large group seats. It would’ve been better if the seat areas were divided into party size. Obviously the views were blocked by the people, too noisy, too busy (staffs running around), so the atmosphere was the worst I can imagine..
But the staffs were professional and their service was very high. Food was also nice. Just didn’t meet my expectation as I was looking forward to a nice birthday dinner.

Lovely, but I would argue almost too much attention from the staff There was someone at the table every few minutes throughout the entire evening, so it was very difficult to relax

So Friday 23rd March my son’s 14th birthday treat and he was so excited about his first supper in a Michelin star restaurant. Scott (FOH) was super nice, in fact all the staff were. My son was allowed into the kitchen afterwards to say Thank you (I alway encourage this practice) and the guys stopped service to say Happy Birthday which was priceless and meant the world to him! The food was flawless and beautifully presented. We had secured a window banquette with gawjuss city views and everything was just so. We finished with a cheeky cocktail in the bar afterwards with even more beautiful city views as the day had turned to night. Big thanks must go to the chef on the night and his standout crew. Thanks for making his 14th birthday so memorable. X

Great restaurant! Went for our anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed it, would definitely recommend. Nice setting with a view and creative food, great tasting and well presented. When we booked we said it was our anniversary and they brought us a surprise dessert with 'Happy Anniversary ' on the plate - special touch! :) will definitely be returning .

We went on a Wednesday evening to celebrate an anniversary. We were seated by the window which was great. The food was fantastic and the service was faultless. I would recommend the Tarte Tatin for dessert - it's amazing!!

Everything about City Social was excellent. Food was sublime, generous portions and a varied menu. I love fish so was very well catered for. Starter was delicious with the smoked haddock being particularly well cooked. Main of Halibut was also excellent. Rum Baba for dessert brought back childhood memories which finished the meal off perfectly. Great wine list with some sensible pricing, and a recommendation matched the meal to perfection (i'll be seeking out a bottle myself). Service was efficient and non-intrusive but also friendly, just as you'd expect for a venue such as this. The view was as expected and on a sunnier day would have topped off the experience. I will return without a doubt.

I had come back to city social with some business colleagues on my trip to London this week as we had a wonderful time last year when visited. However, the service was very poor this time around.
After we finished our first bottle of wine, the waiter or server never came back to take our order or ask if we wanted to have a second bottle.
After about we were done and 20 minutes had gone by following requesting the check, I had to ask someone else other than my wait staff. After completing paying for th meal, my wait staff then came to us and asked if payed multiple times, like I wasn’t being truthful.
The food and ambiance was exquisite , but very disappointed in the service, as that’s what you pay for in a restaurant of this caliber.

I went for dinner with a friend for our monthly get together. The view was nice (although I would say the view at the bar was better than the restaurant). For food I ordered the scallops followed by the venison. Dinner was nice enough. Probably wouldn’t go back for dinner as I don’t think the food reflects the price but maybe for drinks.

Environment and location are amazing and perfect fit for romance/ a date, however I felt the food was a little bit pretentious and portions are quite small. I was expecting a more overwhelming food and a slightly better service for the price charged.
