    Expensive but unique $10-12 cocktails. Arugula salad=good but had a lot of kick (probably more than necessary for an opener). My date wanted his lamb "medium"--however, our waiter (who had a fair amount of attitude~) talked him into med rare. It literally came burgundy/clear (wiggling) in the middle. When he sent it back, they brought back 1 tiny 1.5 round medallion sitting in the middle of a large white plate. The flavor didn't even hold a candle to my sister's grilled lamb chops. I ordered pappardelle but gnocchi was brought to me. It took a LONG TIME to get my correct order. My date was finished eating when my food finally arrived. It was flavorful but 2 garlicky. My date left hungry. No attempt 2 "correct" the entree mistake was made.

    3rd visit to Eat Street Social, a lovely venue with a nice outdoor patio in a nifty urban neighborhood. Our server, Tom, was friendly and attentive but even he couldn't salvage the experience. Ordered Miller Lite, but received Miller High-Life; no big deal; Server described Soup du jour as split-pea w ham, but I rec'd chickpea (garbanzo bean) soup w ham instead---no problem, as it was pretty good. My entree of papparadelle w feta, olives, & cukes contained blanched arugula which rendered the entire dish inedibly bitter. Spouse's soft-shell crab po'boy was OK, tho not served on brioche, as listed on menu. After noting my bitter pasta dish, Chef graciously treated us to a shared creme brulee. Overall, a disappointment.

    It was a return visit and once again we enjoyed the evening. The Pork Chop and Lamb Chops were both prepared perfectly and a very interesting preparation. It was a nice evening to sit outside and made the evening even more enjoyable. The wait staff was very attentive and certainly knew the menu and was able to provide great detail of each of the entrees. We'll be back for sure.

    Server seemed to know menu well but she also would return to the table to say "your food is great, isn't it." Gnocchi was only fair, the fresh tomato gave the dish a sour taste. Drinks were unique. Desserts were not worth the price.

    OK, I've eaten at this place's sister restaurant, Northeast Social, and have always enjoyed it. But this was a whole new experience. Totally different menu and TOTALLY different quality of service. We will be back!!! Service was quick and friendly throughout the meal. Our waiter made great suggestions and was able to answer all our questions. Cocktails are funky and tasty. Great little patio on the side for outdoor dining. This is a winner.

    I have dined several times at Eat Street Social and the food has always impressed. The food is fresh, flavorful and always hot from the kitchen. I've had a (straight forward) burger, smoked pork chops with coconut-naan bread pudding, and the amish chicken. There is also a fairly inventive drink selection--especially when you factor in the bitters choices. My only complaint is that the service can be leisurely but overall, the feeling is fairly laid back and enjoyable.

    Everything about my visit to ESS was all that I hoped for and more. My daughter and I went there to celebrate our birthdays. The food was prepared perfectly - we shared the scallops and steak and each had a garden salad. They surprised us with a birthday treat of a brownie with the fixings. I like the decor and the service was attentive, but not overly. I will be back! I'd like to sit at the cool bar next time or in the nice patio area.

    We had a wonderful dinner at Eat Street Social. We were not able to sit on the patio due to a long wait but we were given a table next to the enormous front windows. When we asked if they could open the windows for some fresh air, the manager was happy to open it up for us (it is a HUGE window and opening it up made it feel almost like sitting outside). The service was simply fantastic and the food was very good. We will gladly return.

    Neighborhood restaurant, service was great, food was even better. My wife had dined here before with friend, had the burger and was ready to have it again, but went a different route this time, we had the rack of lamb and duck, side of crispy fries, you know the slim crunchy kind and can't stop eating, finished the meal with a fantastic bread pudding for dessert. Host stopped a couple of times to check on our table, nice attention to detail. Water was refilled without asking, really nice. Unusual drinks list, and if you like Scotch, Whiskey, great selection Will definitely go back next time in town. Casual upscale food, worthy of your pocket book for the price.

    I love this place. I wandered in for appetizers and a cocktail a Monday afternoon and was blown away by everything I was given. The staff was friendly and excited about what was being made. I brought my family back for dinner and the amount of craft and care that went into everything I was given makes me want to go back. It is a place that inspires me to try new things and get excited about what might come next. I will keep recommending Eat Street Social to my friends as a place to celebrate life and I will be returning myself as I don't want to miss anything they have to offer.

    We took our son there for a special celebration. The food was terrific--I had the roast chicken. I don't usually order it at restaurants, but this was great--reasonable portions, nice, crisp skin, succulent white meat and a delicious, mustardy warm potato salad. The by-the-glass Viogner was crisp and complex. Just a great experience.
