SquareMeal Review of City Social



SquareMeal award hall of fame 1999-2018 logo badgeSquareMeal London Hot 100 2018It may share the signature low-key glamour of Jason Atherton’s other Social restaurants, but the “most incredible views” from Tower 42 elevate City Social to statement status. With the fitting air of a 1920s boardroom, this dining room is custom-built for “business entertaining” – although it has a surprising intimacy given the scale of the setting. Minor grumbles, including music that’s “too loud” in the bar, are dwarfed by readers’ enthusiasm for executive chef Paul Walsh’s oh-so-pretty plates of Michelin-starred food – from cured Scottish salmon with watermelon, saké, cucumber carpaccio, soy and wasabi to tarte Tatin with caramel sauce for sharing. In between, he brings considerable experience to bear on interest-piquing main courses such as saddle of Lincolnshire rabbit with Parma ham, trompette mushrooms, spelt, lovage emulsion and black garlic, line-caught halibut with fondant potato, turnips, crispy prawns and tenderstem broccoli or heritage potato and caramelised onion terrine with Jerusalem artichoke and walnuts. Cocktails are classy, and the wine list is designed to accommodate high rollers – without putting everybody else off.

Private Dining

City Social 1
City Social 6

Private dining reaches new heights at City Social, on floor 24 of Tower 42 to be exact. High quality food and service are a given, but it’s the breath-taking views of this refined and generous space (for 22 people) that provides the talking point. If views are not your thing, the chef’s table (for eight people) is a more intimate affair, where the attention is more on the food.

A 360 restaurant with excellent views of London. Outstanding food although maybe a little bit pricey, so good for a special occasion but not a quick meet up for lunch, unless the company/client is paying :-) I had the Chicken dish which was one of the best I have had. The only thing that could improve is the lighting as it could be a bit brighter but then again it sets the ambiance of the restaurant

For a lunch venue the service was very slow. They took 20 minutes after requesting the bill to bring it, as well as taking a longer than usual time to take our order and bring the food.

I love this bar and restaurant. The views are fabulous, the atmosphere is relaxed despite being a formal restaurant. The staff are welcoming and friendly and the food is superb. No complaints and definitely will return
