  • "Enjoyed being able to dine outdoors but can't rave about the food."

  • "The apps were excellent. We had the market cheese and the grilled sausage. The strip was very good, missed great only slightly for being a bit salty. The entire staff was fantastic. Excited to go back and try more offerings"

  • "I made a reservation for a pre-show theatrical event in the cities and this was the perfect place to stop, enjoy the meal on the patio, the service and selection was above none."

  • "The food seemed overpriced for what you got. The pork tenderloin (25?) was very salty and covered in a red adobo sauce over beans and rice. It made it taste too much like a burrito. I think that it may have been better if the rice/beans were on the side along with a raw veggie or two to cleanse the pallet from the heavy sauce. It was nice and smokey but too salty. The homemade pasta (20?)was mixed with truffle bits with mushrooms and veggies in a white sauce.There wasn't any real flavor one way or the other aside from the mushrooms. Normally the food is good and interesting - it could be just these two dishes. The wine list, service and the deserts are great! Since we seldom go out anymore, we really hope to get something unique but tasty."

  • "The menu was diverse, the food was creative and the service was the best I have experienced in ages - welcoming, attentive and uber sensitive to some of our table members needs. A good time was had by all!"

  • "The quality of the food and presentation was excellent. Portion sizes modest. I needed a little more bread to sop up the great liquor at the bottom of the bowl of mussels and was charged an additional dollar. Seems a bit tacky. Though I would not consider NE Social a great value, the value of the coupon made the experience rewarding and memorable."

  • "NE Social doesn't have a two page menu. They have a one page menu consisting of carefully prepared menu items that are to be savored. I had their mussels this time and the hint of curry gave the broth an incredible smoothness. The burger was incredible also. The meat had so much flavor you could have simply ordered a plain burger and relished it. Their homemade pickles....can't forget those. Our bartender, Jordan, was attentive, informative and very personable. In fact, all the clientele at this gem, go out of their way to make your dining experience a relaxing one. While I am not a huge steak person - their Top Sirloin steak always gets smiles and awes when it is served."

  • "Katie was our server this visit and she was spectacular. She went out of her way to please us and was very professional and friendly. The new pasta dish was wonderful the mushrooms and sauce were perfect. The sea bass was also very good."

  • "I've been to the NE Social many times and this place never fails to please me. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The food is amazing and always with a twist. Tried the Buttermilk Pie for dessert - it was quite delicious and unexpected."

  • "The Northeast Social Club was a very pleasant surprise. We had an Amazon Local deal but would come back even without the discount. We shared an appetizer, delicious salad, perfectly cooked steak and tasty dessert recommended by the waiter. The NE Social Club is a great neighborhood gem."

  • "Some interesting items on the menu worth exploring in this unique little place ! Most of the food was very good... It's always disappointing when a restaurant charges for a bread basket - not even homemade bread... :("
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Enjoyed ourselves once again. So nice to get great food in our neighborhood. Not a lot of choices for the vegetarians but the server inquired in with the chefs and they created a super tasty dish for my Vegan dinner date! Also a great wine suggestion by the server. Another happy date!"

  • "Love this restaurant. If we lived closer we would definitely visit more often. It never disappoints."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Our waiter was so friendly and passionate about the food. Food was fantastic - I had the a grilled rare tuna sandwich and I'd list it in my top restaurant meals ever. The place was pretty noisy but not obnoxiously."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "The place was a little loud, but the food was good. A little pricey, but fair. Love the artwork. Our server was great."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Waitress made sure we did not order any "happy hour" items once she found out we were using a Living Social coupon and took the menu away from us saying "you can't order from that menu." Restaurant has become "over-confident" - needs more variety and more frequent menu changes. Some items are very small portions with large prices."

  • "Loved the outdoor dining, good service, good food. Make sure you call for reservations ahead for weekends, and during the week. Relaxed atmosphere. No pressure to rush. Good for special occasion."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Love the high-quality and delicious local food. Prices are a bit high, but completely in line with what would be expected for a foodie place like this. And it was good. Service and staff were great! Wine list was nice with some reasonable by-the-glass prices. On the whole, a nice night out!"

  • "It's one of our favorite finds and have never been disappointed. Our waiter and all the staff was fantastic and the food as always was wonderful. We certainly will return and look forward to see what their next menu brings."

  • "I had been wanting to try NE Social as I live in the neighborhood and enjoy taking friends and business colleagues out on the town...especially fine restaurants of MPLS. We all agreed that the food was top notch with a fine wine list. Our waiter was less than average actually down right poor. He could not describe any of the specials nor answer basic questions regarding things on the menu. He finally just said "read the menu - it's all explained". We began taking bets as to how hung over he was. The Noise Level was intolerable absolutely terrible. Nice try with the carpet tacked to the underside of tables. We had to yell at each other. We probably won't be back."

  • "The food was amazing. My mouth experienced flavors/seasonings they never experienced before. My steak was perfectly cooked the way I asked. Loved the small neighborhood feel. I would definitely return."

  • "Enjoyed food but found the restaurant very hard to find. They need sign that is large and hanging from side of building. Neat paintings inside restaurant that are fun to look at. The restaurant is on corner on same block as Ritz theatre. Great service and food"
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "We had wonderfully attentive service and the food was terrific and presented well. We are at the point of needing a quieter setting but know there are many who would not be affected by the level of talk in the restaurant."

  • "My wife and I went to NES on a Wednesday night and our service was lackluster. We did not order alcoholic beverages and it seems that is what put our server off. After he brought us our sodas, he only came back to take our order and deliver the food. Either there was a back-up in the kitchen or service is just slow at NES, but it took an hour and 45 minutes for an appetizer, salad and entrees. Not once did our server as if we wanted more to drink or how the food was. All the food was lack-luster. The interior of NES is nice but there is some very creepy art/paintings on the walls. Thankfully we had a Groupon, so our ~$80 dinner was not too bad. Both my wife and I decided we would not go back."

  • "There were four of us dining and each ordered a different entrée. All four were wonderful. (salmon, chicken, steak, burger). Prices are moderate expensive, but the giant half pound burger for $12 could be split by two people for a very reasonable meal."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "After you finally find it, Northeast Social is an epicurean delight. Very unique menu offerings in a wonderfully quaint setting - a restored corner store under a Polish-American social club. The food was excellent and the service was superb. We'll be back, with friends."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "Northeast Social Club scores very high on my scale of restaurant food. The flavors blew me away and the presentation was strong. With all of my attention on food I almost forgot to say the service was out of this world."

  • "We have enjoyed NE Social for dinner many times but found the food very disappointing for brunch."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Had heard great things from friends, and it didn't disappoint. Apps, entrees, and dessert were all wonderful. Our server (Erin) was funny and knowledgable. Will definitely be returning soon!"

  • "Been hearing about Northeast Social for awhile and was eager to try it out. Wasn't disapppointed, food was good the people were great!"

  • "As long time customers, I'm sad to say the last several visits have been disappointing. The pork entree was very bland, lacking the complexity their didhes used to have. The salad an odd flavor mix that didn't meld. Appetizer was meh. Not sure if they changed kitchen staff or what."

  • " We've been several times and love this place for dinner. Short but fun menu and the food is very tasty. Great offering of local beers and good wines."

  • "Our friends from the burbs were visiting and we took them to NE Social. Everything we ordered was exceptional - sausages, chicken, lamb lollipops, soup and even the salad. Looking forward to returning soon. We highly recommend it. "

  • "We ate at Northeast Social for the first time and are ready to return again! Nice ambiance, an excellent waitress and great food. Our shared mussels appetizer was wonderful; the tastiest and most tender mussels we can remember ever having. The steak was perfectly prepared and enough to take a bit home for a steak sandwich the next day. The ahi tuna sandwich was very interesting with pickled haricot vert was different and very good. We look forward to our next meal there!"

  • "I ordered the sausage special ($11) and my dinner companion ordered the hamburger. The special consisted of 2 links with a few slivers of bread, which looked sparse compared to the hamburger w fries that cost only $1 more. The sausage was so heavily loaded w garlic that it stuck with me all night (ugh!) and left my stomach gurgling for several hours. Not a pleasant experience at all. The hamburger was flavorful but very undercooked. The service was stellar. The parking was challenging. Overall I'd give the night a C. "
