This guide reviews the three main perks you will get you at some of the world’s top restaurants by holding the Citi Prestige card.

Perk 1: Free bottle of wine at partner restaurants

This benefit is actually for all Citi cardholders, including the Citi Prestige.

You will receive one free bottle of wine per table from a participating restaurant’s Citi selection when ordering a minimum of one main course per person or spending over $50 at restaurants with a sharing menu (e.g. yum cha or tapas), and paying with a Citi card.

Here is an example of the complimentary wines offered when dining at Bennelong in Sydney:

No split bills are allowed and the bottle must be requested at the time of ordering. There is no need to make a booking beforehand to get the complimentary bottle of wine.

The partner restaurants are in Australia only and can can be found on the Citibank Dining website or Citibank AU app for iOS and Android.

Perk 2: Priority bookings at 100 of the world’s best restaurants

Getting a booking at these top restaurants can be difficult at the best of times, so having the Visa Concierge take care of it takes some of the stress out.

The largest number of these restaurants are found in Australia, North America, Japan, the UK, Singapore, China and Hong Kong, with smaller numbers in Western Europe, India and Peru.

There are three tiers, and it looks like they are in this order:

  • Best Restaurants
  • Remarkable
  • Hidden Gem
