Harden's survey result
“On the 24th-floor of Tower 42, looking across at the Gherkin and Heron Tower, you enjoy some of the most spectacular views of the City” at Jason Atherton’s “sleek, swish and professional” eyrie: a natural favourite for wining and dining in the Square Mile. On most accounts the “fantastic” cuisine is almost as stunning as the panorama, but there is also a school of thought that it’s “average for such excessive prices”.
“You do pay for the vista”, but Jason Atherton’s 24th floor perch, in the City’s Tower 42 boasts “thrilling views” and “plenty of wow factor”, hence it’s often “first choice for a business lunch” (“clients love it!”). “The food won’t take your breath away, but you won’t complain either”.
“Perfect with a client” – especially on a clear day when there’s an “exceptional vista” – Jason Atherton’s 24th floor perch, in the City’s Tower 42, provides “first-rate” cuisine in “swish” surroundings. To some extent though, “you’re paying for the view not the food”.
“Stunning views” help create a “fabulous” and business-friendly setting for Jason Atherton’s year-old City eyrie, on the 24th floor of Tower 42; but – after its magnificent debut – ratings slipped this year, and though fans still say its cuisine is “superb”, critics say it “lacks x-factor”.
City Social Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Despite encouraging us to sit in the bar for dinner because it was “more relaxed” we turned up and realised it was DJ night - this should have been explained on booking. Our request for a table so we could eat was forgotten and we were placed on a high table without room for plates. The restaurant was fully booked so we requested to move to a lower table. Food was good enough but only so much you can enjoy it while surrounded by thumping tunes and various tipsy city folk knocking into your table. Service was slow and patchy.... at least I can safely scratch it off the list! I won’t be returning, or recommending."
