From the grill comes a côte de boeuf with red wine-braised cheeks and bone marrow, and fillet steak cooked over charcoal and served with duck fat chips.

    Overall the experience was good. Quality service and well-prepared dishes and probably the longest wine list I have ever seen. I was a little disappointed that, despite there being plenty of space in the restaurant and making a request to be by the window, my table was not by a window. There were still tables near the window available when we left the restaurant. I think the price of the dishes reflects the Michelin star rather than the quality of the food. Whilst it was nice, portions were tiny and prices were high. I felt like I would be better off at one of the other rooftop restaurants in the city, and I didn't think City Social offered anything above that. It loses a star for that.

    The food was fantastic and obviously the views were special The staff were very friendly but we found ourselves with empty glasses quite a lot of the time and had to attract someone’s attention for refills of water and wine. Definitely tarnished our experience
