    I was sceptical due to being able to book a table so last minute. However… Marina Social by Jason Atherton was a pleasant surprise from start to finish. The setting and marina view is perfect, the interior stylish, the food delicious and the service outstanding. The staff really made us feel like we were a priority and checked in on us every step of the way without feeling overbearing. Dishes included Hokkaido scallop, wagyu tartare, lobster risotto (generous serving of fresh lobster!), and hazelnut soufflé. All excellent, nothing average here. Seems that table scarcity isn’t a good measure of quality after all. Would recommend for a date and family evenings out.

    Although a great restaurant, the service was painfully slow Between courses it took over an hour. I think the waiter forgot to order the main dishes.

    Very good and incredibly fast as we were served our food within 5 minutes of ordering but that only makes me think the food was premade and not made to order. Overall, the taste and quality was very good but I was also a little disappointed as I was expecting a bit more considering this was a Michelin star chef restaurant. Beautiful views of the Dubai Marina.

    Food was average but most importantly the service was terrible, we were interrupted have way through our meal while eating by on of the waiters to take one of our chairs to use for another table, my wife had to them move her bag and onto the table. Secondly the western lady who was serving (seemed like was in charge) had her face mask down around her Neck. I would not return due to standards dropping significantly, poor service and lack of concern over diners safety.

    Amazing desserts. But sadly two very uninspiring main courses. Rather too formulaic for the amount being charged.

    We tried the "social roast" special, a choice of lamb, beef or chicken in any combination at the waiter's recommendation. My wife ordered lamb and beef and I chose chicken and beef. The food arrived within two minutes of ordering, so clearly it's precooked and sitting around under warming lights. Except that the beef was lukewarm, and the meats were coated in a buttery, oily spread that ruined the taste of what might have been good cuts. My wife sent hers back and requested a freshly cooked plate without the glaze or whatever they rub on the meat. The side dishes, particularly a carrot mash and a cauliflower gratin, were so buttery and salty as to be inedible. Even after the little we ate, we woke up the next day with mouths coated with icky glop and it took 24 hours to lose the bad taste. It's all a shame, because the setting overlooking the marina is attractive and reportedly some of the fish and other dishes are better.
