Social Vinings is a good option
Social Vinings is a good option for business lunches. Reliable food, decent service, moderate price points.

I recently dined at Social
I recently dined at Social Vinings for their Easter Brunch and had a great dining experience. From their omelet and carving stations to their sushi and dessert bar, the team at SV really thought of everything. The variety of food was diverse enough so that an entire group's tastes could be satisfied. In the mood for bacon, eggs and waffles? They've got it. Would you rather have lamb, salad and sushi? They've got that too.
What made the experience even better was the attentive service staff and the minimal noise in the restaurant, despite the growing crowd of families with young children. I had a great experience and hope the Social Vinings will consider adding brunch to their regular menu offerings.

Easter Sunday Brunch a winner!
We had a terrific Brunch on Easter Sunday and wanted to give Social Vinings rave reviews. Our table was ready when we arrived, and they had a special price on Mimosas, which were festive. Assorted Sushi, great fresh green salad, omelet station, eggs benedict, amazing grits, ham carving station, house smoke salmon, etc. They were out of lamb on the carving station and when we expressed our disappointment, the manager sent over a lamb appetizer, grilled curried lamb satays, which was kind and appreciated. We ran into friends from church so there was a "neighborhood" feeling to Social Vinings, which we found charming. Glad we picked Social Vinings for our Easter celebration; we will be back!

We celebrated our anniversary and were treated with complimentary glass of delicious bubbly. My first experience with fried lobster tail, it was DELICIOUS! Service was excellent. I had ordered flowers and they were already on the table for us when we arrived, my wife was very pleased. We were also treated with a dessert of Oreo cookie baked in a beignet batter, with homemade strawberry ice cream, and fresh strawberries and blueberries under whip cream on the side.
A very enjoyable meal and evening!

This is the second time at this restaurant and it does not disappoint. My group and I were having such a good time, it was late and we were the only patrons in the back room but the staff did not make us feel as if we were holding anyone up.

I came to town with my girlfriend to meet up with good friends and wanted a fun, vibrant place to drink, eat and mingle. This is a great spot! I had a reservation for 6 but when the restaurant called me earlier in the day to confirm, I asked if I could up the number to 8 and they did no problem. I really appreciated getting a courtesy call beforehand! When we arrived, they were ready for us but I noticed there were 2 high top bar area tables available so they pulled them together and we had a perfect spot for our group. Our waitress was friendly but after getting the first person's drink order she walked away so we had to wait until she returned..not quite sure why that happened. It took her a while to get our split checks correct.

Social has a great outdoor
Social has a great outdoor space, but it was raining when I went. My friend and I ate at the bar and absolutely loved it - live music, people watching and delicious food - I had the filet mignon.

I booked Social Vinings for my sister's birthday for a party of 8. We wanted to sit in the bar area, but we were taken to the back large more private dining area. The ambiance was perfect for a group gathering or romantic date night. It was very nice, really good service from the waiter, all of our food was prepared excellently. This was everyone's first time there (my third time) and everyone loved it.

As a surprise for my husband for Father's Day I had decided to take him to brunch. I received an email about Social Vinings Brunch and decided to give it a try as we had not been there for brunch. What a wonderful surprise. We both loved the selection and freshness of all the food. The sushi for brunch was a great surprise. We will be back as it makes other brunches in our area seem mediocre.

This was a pleasant surprise!
This was a pleasant surprise! It was Father's Day and they had a superb buffet! Their desert bar was outstanding! The beignets were fabulous! We really enjoyed our brunch and we are sure to try it again.

The food was great! The only flaw was they do not allow diners to bring their own wine. The wine list is very limited at best.
It definitely puts a damper on the experience!

Paul does it again
My Husband and I chose the Social just because I read It was a "Paul" restaurant. We were not disappointed at all. The Food was wonderfully amazing as we expected nothing less from a "Paul" experience. The service was excellent and the music was an extra pleasure. The Social Vinings is going to be one of the hottest places to dine. I'm excited about my new favorite place to eat.

Delicious food - perfect outing
Went to Social Vinings with a group of 8 ladies. We had not seen each other in many years and the server offered us the private room, which was perfect! Our server was Megan and she did such an awesome job of waiting on our noisy group, was very patient and even took photos for us after dinner. The food was out of this world. Almost all of us had the special of the evening, which was crab crusted yellow fin tuna. It couldn't have been any better, was served promptly and hot to our table. Also had the house salad and the house dressing is delicious. I thought the wine list was great, even finding a Pinot noir from Willamette Valley, my favorite region. The creme brûlée was very good, too. Complimentary valet parking a plus!

Great Sunday Early Dinner spot
We had sushi ,appetizers and dessert along with wine. It was light meal just right for an early dinner. We ate on the patio which was good even though it was a little sunny,it was still enjoyable to dine outside! Would definitely recommend it to friends.

Excellent food and was so
Excellent food and was so glad we asked to sit in a booth. The main dining area was close quarters and very noisy. Once it got busy our waiter kind of forgot about us, but I would definitely try again was the food was so good.

Spacious business lunch spot
Was looking for good food, a place whereyou could hear the others talk, and where they had a quick lunch menu. This restaurant had it all. The main dining room is spacious feeling. The ceiling and walls have panels that absorb sound so it is easy to hear one another.
The service was great and we could have been in and out in 45 minutes if needed after a great meal. I had the Cobb salad. The lettuce was crisp and fresh with a chicken breast sliced atop avocados, eggs, cheese, tomatoes and bacon. The white balsamic vinaigrette was light and refreshing. My guest had the Caesar salad with seared ahi tuna on top. The tuna was delicious and well seasoned and the salad was the same.
Looking forward to one day trying dinner here.

Great Food, Great Service
I have been to Social Vinings for both Brunch and Dinner. Each time the food was great and so was the service. I will be going back again.

I always enjoy Social Vnings...
This a great neighborhood spor for a simple dining experience. The food is always good and consistent and the space is open and friendly. The Mahi Mahi and crunchy tuna rolls we shared were very good. One note the decor is ready for an update and our waiter could work on his service skills. He seemed more interested in closing out our bill so he could go home early than giving his best service. All in all a good place.

Great experience at Social Vinings
We had a great experience at Social Vinings. Our party was in their private dining room area. Great food and service. Thanks for making our birthday celebration memorable!

Great place for a business lunch - really good food, not too noisy to talk, wait staff well trained. Only complaint is the tables are very small so there is not much room at the tables when you are 3-4 big guys.

Great food, but service uneven
Due to a road closure, we were late for lunch reservation (along with most others). Not much effort to assist us, sort of a "what do you want us to do about it" at the front. Then, server was polite, but left us with empty drinks for long stretches & food was very slow arriving. I've been to SOCIAL 4-5 times, w/o these issues, so it may just have been the wrong day/server. Food, however, was excellent. Had the nouvelle BLT on rye w/ jicama slaw (very tasty) & spicy tempura brussels sprouts (a real treat). My friend had the house burger, which was prepared a perfect medium, very flavorful, etc. I would definitely recommend SOCIAL, but they need to work on even service quality. Otherwise, I would have given them a "Very Good" overall score.

This was my first time eating dinner here and was also a first date, and the food, service and atmosphere could not have been better. Barrett, our server, complied with a special request from my companion and both our entrees were excellent.
