Helix Restaurant at The Gherkin
Been to City Social a fair few times and I’m always impressed with the service and food. A cool, trendy vibe with amazing food!
To noisy and the food was not as good as the first time we came
We enjoyed lunch (for four), with a view of the Gherkin and surrounding area.
We certainly enjoyed complex flavours in every dish, and the tart tatin (for two) could almost serve four!
Staff were attentive, and gave excellent service.
The background music wasn't intrusive, but was very modern.
I noticed the cost of a bottle of English wine, and was surprised.
Obviously a top class restaurant with top class food, and great views ... that all comes at a price.
We had a lovely late lunch and felt special
Really enjoyed our first time here. Service was excellent. I requested a table by window, and to my surprise I got it. View was amazing to look over London. The food was delicious. Would definitely recommend to friends.
Amazing scenery and ambiance along with amazingly delicious food. Only downside was the wait for additional food orders which were delayed. But with the professional staff and great food this was just a minor issue.
I think it’s got better - subtle tweaks to service.
Mystified by the lack of sides - I want more than just chips with my steak - yet no sides available?!!
Apart from that, a lovely room that still retains its ‘special’ atmosphere.
Amazing views ,stunning food very vibrant but we found it a little too noisy to hold a conversation
Stunning views, fantastic food, can’t wait to go back again
We were made to wait at the bar 30mins+ from our table booking time. We were only seated after asking and then had the most appalling service. We left without properly eating.
Food was simply amazing! What a shame that the service was such a let down! For the price and the quality of the food I expect a lot more of the service. There wasn't one really bad issue with service but everything was slightly off e.g. we waited 45min for first glass of wine, tasting menu wasn't offered until we asked, then we had to ask for vegetarian tasting menu, bread arrived late with an annoyed comment we had asked for 2nd (didn't even had first round), waitress couldn't answer simple question - what is in the sorbet?, wine pairing - wine was served late vs. dish, quantity were very stingy and uneven between my husband and I, service was very long. Considering the price, service ruined the experience.
My party had an excellent meal at City Social. The view of the city was beautiful from the 24th floor. My lemon sole and truffle mash main course was arguably the best ever fish course I've had and the banana souffle dessert was outstanding. I would highly recommend.
Very disappointed with the staff and quality of the food, no one was around to give feedback and I have emailed but had no reply.
Enjoyed a business lunch here. The views are great, especially from the bar area looking west. Food service was a bit hit and miss on this occasion which was a shame, particularly as the restaurant wasn't overly busy. Individual errors I think. Food was tasty and well presented otherwise.
Buen lugar, elegante y gran servicio. La comida no es barata pero lo vale
Food: Do give a try on the wagyu dish, very delicate and well cooked. Cod dish was visually stunning as well.
Service: Everything was great before we were asked to move to the bar area for desserts. Did not expect that for a michelin restaurant. Probably the waiter wanted to spare our seat with better view to other customers. But definitely not considering as the bar area was so loud and noisy. Staffs were not as attentive as the dining area. We sitted there for almost 10 minutes without care, not even served with water until we ask for it. A shame that did not had a perfect ending for the meal.
The quality and standard of the food was not in line with the price. The service was good however and venue was stunning. Better restaurants out there offering better quality for that price.
First of all, the food was fabulous. There was no issue with that. Service on this night, however, was a bit off. To be fair, it was Christmas Eve,
We were first seated in the bar to wait for our table to be ready... mere moments after receiving cocktail menus, they were taken away and we were informed our table was ready. We were not offered cocktails. Once at the table, we had one drinks menu to share for 5 people in the dark. Then, here comes the somm to ask about wine. “We’d like to start with a cocktail...but since we have only one menu...” He didn’t take the hint, merely left. We needn’t rush about sharing the menu, as it turns out, because no one came to take a cocktail order for a very long time. When we did finally get through cocktails and ordered wine, a Chardonnay, the somm returned and presented it, clearly stating “Chardonnay,” and showing us the back of the bottle. It took awhile in the dark to read the small print on the back, but eventually we realized it was a Pinot Grigio...
Again, the food, however, was top notch and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
