AstoundingThis one of the best dining experiences I have had in a while, and the best I have ever had in Dallas. The bar was amazing, every detail looked over for perfection. The food wasn't only yummy, it was inventive with a splash of creative flair in it's presentation. We let the restaurant order for us, we had the perfect meal and our drink glasses were never empty. The wait staff across the board from the bar to floor were all tip-top and very attentive, as well as very nice. This is a fantastic restaurant. I will be coming back to Dallas just to eat here again.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and serviceWent here Tuesday evening with my dinner group. Great food, presentation and service. Will be going back!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was a fabulous experience!This was a fabulous experience!
The review in the Dallas Morning News seems ridiculous and mean. The food was very inventive and delicious. The edible Dali is worth doing once just because it is very fun. It tastes good, but not as good as the other items, which will knock your socks off. The smoked salmon was extremely good. I loved the fried radishes. Everything was very, very good. It was beautifully plated as well.
I talked to several people around our table and they all loved it as well.
I highly recommend it.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMunique, high quality, fun!Excellent food and presentation, attentive and efficient service, great selections at the bar. From booking through departure, it was an excellent experience! Only one observation for managrment's attention - while the night was not busy, the bartender was and service was a bit slow. I'd have expected a manager to step in and pinch hit for him.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA Major Uptown HitPrivate Social has a new chef/owner, Najat Kanaache. I have nothing but praise for this new re-creation of Private Social. The food was impeccable with an excellent combination of healthy choices, outstanding mix of flavors, spices ect. The service was outstanding and extremely attentive. The display of food was artistic and very creative. Chef Kanaache is a very warm and personable chef/owner who invited us back to her kitchen for a show and tell of how the operations work. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to experience a major hit in the Uptown Dallas neighborhood. My entire party loved the experience. We will return many times.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe staff was very welcomingThe staff was very welcoming and provided excellent customer service. We will definitely be returning.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGotta Go ThereChef came out to say hello . Food is excellent and unique. Great find. The presentations are spectacular backed up by amazing flavors. Would love to sit at chefs table sometime!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMEven though Private SocialEven though Private Social is a different restaurant now, we had a delicious, whimsical meal. The only low point was the shrimp, which was bland. The mozzarella salad made me want to lick the plate - flavors and textures melded well. I had the chicken and my date had the halibut - both were served on a bed of fabulous vegetables. So good! The chef paid a visit to our table. Waitstaff (Michelle) was solicitous and recommended that my date try a drink that he enjoyed. We skipped dessert, but were treated by the house to a watermelon/frozen raspberry seed sangria to top off our meal! Enjoyable evening
The menu needs some work - not from a 'what is served' standpoint, but from a descriptive standpoint - it doesn't reflect the good food4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMA welcome change from the usualMy curiosity was piqued by the new executive chef here,so we booked a table for our pre-show dinner last night.
From the gracious staff at the door, to our waiter Zach ,our intimate booth and the sophisticated ambiance made for avery nice evening,indeed.
Reminiscent of Heston Blumenthal's approach to the sensory dining experience,a beautiful copper mug was brought to the table to set the mood, with clouds of delightful fragrance spilling out of it (dry ice, thyme....). Next, we were served a sort of liquid "amuse bouche" in the form of a peach sangria-delicious!
Then, I had chosen a Pear-Ginger Martini that was fabulous-kudos to the bartender. And my husband had a glass of Grüner Veltliner, which can sometimes be hard to find on a wine l3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely excellent foodAbsolutely excellent food and service. However, don't expect to eat a lot here. The servings look very artistic and the taste is unbelievable but the portions are very small so don't expect to have your belly full after the dinner. Low noise and excellent ambiance so perfect for romantic getaway if you look just for something to nibble while you socialize.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great and a big improvemenFood was great and a big improvement from the prior chef, IMO. Bartenders were terrific. Table staff is still getting its legs with the new chef and approach. Give it a month and this place will be seriously on the come.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe live down the street, soWe live down the street, so it is convenient. Food was very good and service was attentive but not overbearing.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was outstanding,The food was outstanding, interesting, creative and appropriately priced for the quality. The food is very sophisticated and someone looking for steak and potatos will miss the point. The staff is knowledgeable and the chef and staff are very accomodating. I LOVED it.3/6/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful dining experience.A wonderful dining experience. Very creative, unique dishes with beautiful presentation. Amazing service!1/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
