Took Nikon D610 and three lenses for night city shots:

Nikon AF-S 85mm f/1.8

Nikon AF-S 24-70 f/2.8

Nikon AF-P 30-700 f/4.5-5.6

Which one is best?

The D610 is outstanding at low ISO, and that means long exposures and/or fast lenses, thus I'd say use a tripod, and keep ISO under 800, and open the RAWs in DxO PhotoLab 4!
Noise is what kills your images, as there is nothing bad with the composition!
I do have a preference for the 70-300 around 135mm, but that 85 is a delight!
