An amazing mealThis was one of the best dining experiences I have ever had. We has a tasting menu that was incredible. The scallops melted in your mouth and the Rib-eye steak was prepared to perfection! They have a wonderfully diverse menu and make everything fresh and on-site. Oh and I almost forgot to mention the dessert, the carrot cake was moist and rich with a cream cheese frosting to rival most that I have had. I work in the food industry and I have absolutely nothing negative to say about t49 Social. My best friend and I walked out of the restaurant full and happy. I recommend 49 Social to anyone who is looking for a special night out or just a great dinner with friends.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfectly cooked steak. CutePerfectly cooked steak. Cute waitress, not too informative! Too dark to eat though. I would come again and again!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat pre-theatre drink or mealWe had a lovely meal--the fish special was outstanding with fiddle heads and home made gnocchi as sides. I also like the bar very much. The bar tender is attentive and makes a good drink. She remembered I had been in the week before even though I just was a walk in then so she did not have a reservation history to aid her memory. That impressed me. I will be back.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWow - Incredible FlavorsYou don't get food this good very many places. Chef Lishchynsky puts his own spin on old favorites like French Onion Soup, which was, by the way, amazing in that kind of spoon-dropping first-taste amazing. My wife started with the Chef's Spring Salad. When she saw it, she said "Darn, I could have made this at home." But when she tasted it she said "Wow!" She is an amazing cook with a sophisticated palate so this is no small compliment.
For a main course I had the Pasta Primavera and she had the Marinated Grilled Swordfish. The pasta primavera used house-made pasta and it showed - very, very nice dish. The swordfish generated more wows from my wife. She took half home and is looking forward to having it for dinner tonight.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food start to finishAmazing food start to finish! It was a slow weeknight so I was worried the food wouldn't be up to weekend standards. I was WRONG! The food was fantastic. Every dish. 5 spice rub tuna, best lamb shank EVER, incredible carrot cake, great coctails. Really the food was AWESOME.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed 49 SocialThe resturaunt was unremarkable in the crowded Boston block, but easy to find nevertheless. We were seated right away, we had reservations but there were open tables. We enjoyed an appetizer (Frito Misto) and she had the Fillet and I had a pasta and seafood dish (de Frutti is all I remember of the name). Both were great and the fillet was done perfect with a creamy mashed potato and grilled asparagus and a gravy to die for. My seafood dish came on top of frsh made long flat noodles and except that I would have preferred a little more seafood, it was delicious! I ordered Carrot Cake for dessert but we brought it home we were so full! It was terrific as well. The waitress, Leah, did a great job as well. An enjoyable experience for sure!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMwe had a great meal at 49we had a great meal at 49 Social. The food was delicious - the monkfish was perfectly cooked. our waitress was very attentive and friendly, offering good suggestions. There weren't many people in the restaurant so it was rather quiet that night, but could imagine it may be much louder if full.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMTop to bottom flawless experience.Top to bottom flawless experience. Everything was perfect.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe five of us sat at theThe five of us sat at the back table. We had a 5:30 reservation and were going to the theater for an 8 pm show. The food was fabulous; the drinks were good and the owner stopped by a couple of times to check in on us. The only glitch was that they didn't have the ingredients to make an appletini - my mom's favorite drink - was a bit surprised at that given it was a Friday night. Was a great experience and would go there again.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGot the round booth in theGot the round booth in the back which was away from the bustle of the bar scene. We loved the starters menu so much we decided to eat "Tapas" and share a set of starters. The calamari was very good with a slightly different flavoring that we all enjoyed. The seared tuna was delicious but just a few small pieces. The filet mignon was delicious as were the mussels. After dinner we had the caramel bread pudding which was excellent - not too sweet, and perect4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMLarge portions, food wasLarge portions, food was good. very good for before theatre4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGood for pre-theater!Excellent spot for pre-theater dining. My fellow diner swears she had the best swordfish she had ever had. I tried the lamb Bolognese with mint sauce - tastes much better than it sounds! Solid service - the manager shut down a cold air register above our heads when we complained about being cold. Space got crowded upstairs when it filled up but the servers were able to maneuver just fine.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AM49 social has replaced the49 social has replaced the former restaurant Ivy. There is great use of the space for seating and bar. I love the dark yet rich ambiance of the place. The entrees are in the $20-30 range, but big enough portions to share. They have a decent wine list. I think I would really enjoy the bar. It's not too noisy, so perfect for catching up with a friend.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWent here via group on butWent here via group on but would return with no discount. Excellent food and service. Tables are a bit cramped.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing!This place was great. My boyfriend and I had the lamb and the scallops and both dishes were to die for. The service was great as well. We would recommend this place for a nice date-night in the city.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and ambiance wereThe food and ambiance were terrific. The lobster ravioli appetizer was delicious and the pan seared scallops on root vegetable puree with lotus blossom crisps and a citrus foam was ethereal . Also the cold smoked sirloin with chipotle blue cheese butter and herb roasted new potatoes with sauteed spinach was outstanding.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe staff at the restaurantThe staff at the restaurant was welcoming and friendly. Our waitress explained the menu thoroughly and made a point to note the Restaurant Week menu. Each course was exactly as described on the menu, but looked even more beautiful than imagined coming out of the kitchen. The drink menu was varied and unique, and the wine list had options for every taste.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
