I took my boyfriend out for a birthday lunch and we decided on City Grill. I ordered the Guacamole burger, which wasn't bad but it's something I feel like could've made at home. My boyfriend had the calamari which was incredibly overpriced for the quality,...portion, and flavor. I also ordered the kiwi mojito which was a combination of syrupy, overly sweet, blandness. Service was good though but I won't be returning.More

We really enjoyed everything about this restaurant. I chose a lovely fillet steak with pepper sauce and mash and it was propee comfort food, really enjoyed it. My wife had chicken in a mushroom sauce and mash and was also very pleased with her meal....All members of staff were so polite and helpful and we enjoyed a few glasses of wine to accompany the food. I always feel that the best restaurant experience benefits from having a visual front of house manager, things always tend to run much more smoothly and you have a direct contact should things go wrong ( at times every restaurant makes the odd mistake). The manager at City Grill actually helped my wife with her phone when trying to book a Uber back to Camps Bay, he was a very pleasant man who obviously runs a very efficient and hard working team at City Grill. I can thoroughly recommend a visit, it ticks every box. Thank you.More

Not the best experience. It wasn’t too packed but service was slow and the steak wasn’t great (I got the wrong cut of meat!). There was also poor communication between us, the server and the kitchen. Eventually the manager sorted it out, but won’t be...going back there for a while. Much better steakhouses around the city.More

My family and I went walking around the V&A Waterfront and walked past a few restaurants looking at all the menus to decide on where to eat for dinner. While looking at City Grill's menu, one of the most friendly waiters came to us, assisted...us and just had a good conversation with us. He made us a promise that if we came back later, he would guarantee that we could cut our steaks with a butter knife, and if not we should not tip him... We thought he was joking. Later that evening we settled on City Grill for dinner, just because of the warmth we felt earlier from the entire staff. So we took Charles R on with his bet, and no kidding we cut that steak with a butter knife. The food was amazing, the service was marvelous and the vibes were happening. Thank you to Charles R and his team for their excellent service.More

Exceptional and tasteful steaks at fair prices. This is a restaurant that has stood the test of time and I know why they do after having a choice of steak every time I visit.
