“Excellent food”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

My husband and I found ourselves at the city grill without a reservation and we were accommodated. The steaks are very special in this restaurant and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Portions were great and the service was friendly. We were at first placed at a table which took the cold cape wind every time the door opened and when we asked to be moved, we were graciously accommodated where we could continue to enjoy our evening. I recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to enjoy a really good steak.

By pure chance, we ate here and had a mist memorable evening - for all the right reasons! Waiter gave excellent service. Food exceeded expectations and, of course, THAT view!

“excellent service and food.”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

Visiting South Africa, my friends and I went to the Waterfront for dinner. the weather was great and we sat outside with the lovely oceanic. Out waiter Lance recommended that the try the chefs special not on the menu and i had a zebra. The food was well prepared and absolutely divine. In-spite of it being a busy night, Lance gave us excellent service and his full attention throughout the night. I would definitely say a must visit if in the Waterfront.

“Fantastic Experience”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

My friends and I went to City Grill on Sat night. The ambiance was great and we had to wait a couple of minutes for a table as the restaurant was jam packed. The service was quick and our waiter explained all the chef specials. Zebra was something I have never tried so I thought I would give it a chance. What a surprise. I absolutely loved it. 2 of my friends shared a venison skewer, which the manageress came to remove and explained what type of meat it was. Tender and cooked to perfection are the two words that were brought up. I would highly recommend this restaurant and they will be seeing much more of me. Service, food and wine was FANTASTIC!
