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.

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.

A great evening with great food. It does need to be made clear on OpenTable that Social24 is the bar area and not the main restaurant.

That said the food was great and the view amazing even given the cloud and rain.

Very long wait for drinks even though the bar was not that busy. Only one person serving tables and mangers make no eye contact with customers. G&T presentation was extremely poor for the price - more like an old pub style than today's fashionable cocktail. Tonic was warm so ice melted very quickly. Other cocktails unappealing presentation. 5-star hotel pricing without the extras (nibbles) or sophistication. Bar menu disappointing in content. Very surprised how poor service and quality of drinks were for an Atherton establishment and given the competition in the area.

Had an amazing lunch with my friends at City Social. We took advantage of the great lunch deal of 3 courses for £28.
The service was amazing, the french female waitress was full of good laughs and very vibrant which made the experience much more memorable. The pork terrine was my favourite, so delicious.

Will be back for sure.

I arrived on time for my reservation and then waited 19 minutes after being seated without being served. Was not given a menu, offered a drink, or even acknowledged. I left without dining on account of the abysmal service. Will not return.

Came with my girlfriend on a Saturday night for drinks with a view.

Pretty typical 'city' bar. Views of London are fantastic although quite a few of the windows were really dirty, which sounds really particular/fussy but if you're going here you're goin because the views nice and you expect it to feel more upmarket...which is why the drinks are priced they way they are. It's pricey but as expected.

I'd recommend going on a Saturday because it was pretty much empty, I imagine in the week it'd be pretty busy.

They also don't serve pints which in my opinion is shameful. That's like being a fireman and only putting out fires in apartments and not houses.

Would go back only if I was expensing the bill through my company credit card.

We went for a special birthday occasion on a Saturday evening for pre drinks before dining elsewhere. There was 6 of us therefore had a booth in the middle of the room ... which meant we didn’t get much a view, it was quite noisy and difficult to talk and the drinks were overpriced.

After a long, lazy lunch, we wanted a couple of cocktails with a great view. The view was incredible, specially as we had a window table. Ended up having 3 cocktails each... pricey, but you're paying for the view. Lovely though

Was there the wknd sat 5/1/18
Was a surprise Bday meal for my gf.
The welcoming was warm .Started in the bar for a cocktail view by the window see London at night. Then taken to the restaurant . Again very warm welcome. The service was second to none. Plenty of staff to take care of the customers. All ran like clockwork meticulous to any need . Very courteous and friendly.
The food was superb. Could not fault anything we had.
Must commend all those that work there. It’s pricey but you pay for what you get. Definitely intend to return. There was a nice surprise for my gf a Beautiful made individual cake in a box brought without any fanfare or happy birthday being sung. As we left the staff and managers came out to wish us goodbye . Superb experience .
