I was pushed to the bar since I was a party of 1. I felt like I was eating in a club. The view was beautiful, but not enough to make up for the ok meal and extremely loud club music. I get why they would push a party of 1 to the bar - though in all my travels this is the first time it has ever happened - but if I had the choice again as a female traveling alone I would hard pass.

Dealing with the sun is an issue if you are sitting anywhere near or opposite a window, there were 3 options of mail meal on the menu and the waitress was not familiar with any of them which is strange as the options were not extensive.

They were out of most of their food, and didn’t tell us about some of it until it was too late to order anything else. The food we got was great, but we did leave hungry. The drinks were pricey, but delicious. The view was fantastic. They were very apologetic, but the fact remains they took our dinner reservations, and then didn’t have much in the way of food to offer us.

Went there for a friend’s 30th, and despite me having made a wrong booking the staff managed to get us a table with a fab view. Birthday girl wanted the truffle mash with her main instead of the duck fat fries, and the chef was kind enough to oblige her request. We were spoiled with a birthday dessert too, so we struggled to leave the place as we were so full.

Highly recommend - and remember to be hungry! Definitely value for money!

We had dinner at the bar. It was a bit too noisy but the service and food was excellent. They even gave us extra food as compliment. The waitress that we had, a woman from Cadiz (Spain) was really professional and her service was perfect.

Having visited City Social or Social 24 as its now called many times over the last 5 or so years I can’t help but notice the quality of service is slipping. Where this used to offer outstanding service at every level it’s now just good.

We didn’t eat but this review page insists I enter a score for food so I have scored it.

After visiting City Social a number of times previously, I was extremely disappointed with our recent visit.
Admittedly, the staff also knew they weren’t providing the best service and have subsequently offered for us to come back with a direct line to the manager to ensure we are seated properly in the Restaurant and experience City Social at its best.
- We were unfortunately seated in the bar so menu was limited.
- We were provides with the wine list and no one took our order. After 25 minutes we went to the bar ourselves to order a bottle.
- After just under 1.5 hours we received our starters, one of which we wouldn’t eat at all and both were heavily greasy. We did have these deducted from our bill.
- Almost 2 hours (and after asking for our mains), they arrived and were better than the starter but quite disappointing in standard and taste was bland.
- We received a complimentary birthday treat and were then left for 10minutes without any cutlery to eat it with - it took us to ask again for cutlery.
The team knew device was unacceptable however in not seeing my friend since May this year, and a night especially booked for my Birthday where we always endeavour to go to a Michelin restaurant, this was a huge let down. Which is very sad as I have loved City Social in previous visits.

We booked a table in the bar for my fathers birthday. The staff were amazing. They said happy birthday and brought him a cake with a candle and a shot. Even knew that two of us were not drinking and brought a non-alcoholic alternative. Thanks very much

Went for a quiet drink and some food. There was a party for 150 people going on!! Staff were completely overwhelmed. If I had been told this when I booked I would have cancelled. The noise level was through the roof could hardly hear yourself talk. Perhaps in the future when you have big parties going on DONT take any more reservations for couples etc, it’s not fair!!! Very poor service for not letting me know what was going on.

The staff were excellent and polite. The views were amazing. The food was bland and mostly what we chose was deep fat fried. Not good for diet or for taste. The pate I ordered was full of congealed grease lumps. The chicken was dry and as I said deep fried.

Came for my husband’s 40th birthday, the view was amazing but the service was definitely not and nor was the food! On arrival we were not offered any bread! Our food arrived in less than 5 minutes from ordering, it was clearly someone else’s! It was impossible for them to cook our order in that space of time and deliver it to our table! I found certain members of staff to be very argumentative, just not anything I expected from a Michelin star restaurant. Won’t be repeating the experience. A free glass of bubbly is no compensation for a disaster of what was meant to be a fabulous birthday evening! I am sure who ever is reading this review would not want this to happen to them! Very disappointing!

I have been before, I loved the views and the cocktails were amazing. The cocktails were beautiful again but the service was painfully slow. There was a jewellery launch event taking place at the same time, I think we should have been given a better table to counteract it as we were almost part of the event and it took far too long to get served.

Not my style but needed a quiet place with a view for business with someone I knew would appreciate it from out of town. Treated very well, guest enjoyed, not at all overcrowded like the obvious options for this kind of thing. Thanks all! Disclaimer - we only had drinks and nuts but couldn't leave an N/A for food.

I felt that, for the price point, the food wasn’t particularly ‘luxurious’. Fish and chips were ok but not speculator. Ambience was good and staff very attentive and friendly but overall a bit underwhelmed by the experience.

A fine view but a rather dated feel. The wine list was lengthy but poorly laid out and the index bore little relevance to the page numbers. No house wines and ordinary wines overpriced. I don’t mind a 300% markup - double that is excessive. Food pleasant but presentation a bit dated as well.
