Great dinner, the deconstructed
Great dinner, the deconstructed shrimp and grits were superior as was the flat iron steak with roasted vegetables. Loft seating not exciting - will return but will request main floor seating!

We very much enjoyed our bianco
We very much enjoyed our bianco pizza. If you're especially hungry, order an appetizer or salad, but the pizzas are large enough for two. Service was prompt and friendly. Definitely recommend for a visit.

only negative - very loud.
only negative - very loud. If you can sit near kitchen windows, do so . . . great fun watching the chefs construct the meals!

Great Night Spot
We had a wonderful time here sampling the wine flights, the desserts, and the rose glass decanter (even attempting to make it into our mouths from the balcony at one "class" point).

Social a hidden gem!
Tucked away in a tiny storefront on East Bay Street in Charleston, this hidden gem of a gourmet restaurant should be a planned stop (or two or three) on anyone's visiting itinerary! Because the traffic and locations of public parking facilities in "The Holy City" are sparse and scattered over the entire peninsula, it's best to park in the Cumberland St. garage (near State St.) and walk to this destination. We were pleasantly surprised at the spaciousness of the this fine dining facility since the front of the building is quite small facing the busy street. While there is no outdoor dining, which we would have preferred, the Social Eggs Benedict and Bloody Mary served inside started our day with a BANG! Don't pass by this one!

They accommodated a last minute reservation request. Wine, food, service ... Everything was great. Wicked deals on food during happy hour when we were there. I will definitely return.

Wonderful wine experience
Celebrated my birthday night with a friend. We had never experienced "wine flights" before and it was really enjoyable and educational. We sampled various wines that we would probably ordinarily have the opportunity to try. Our server was amazing! She was so helpful and attentive. The menu is a little different- they have tapas, appetizers, and entrees. They have the BEST thin crust pizza ever! Would definitely recommend and I will definitely re-visit when I return to Charleston.

Good food and great service. Got our meals a little quick while we still had an appetizer, but we weren't rushed at all. Would definitely recommend.

New Wine Bar in Town
This place is relatively new and very packed, so you need reservations. There were tons of groups there, however it is a large establishment so it didn't feel crowded. They have wine flights and yummy cocktails. Though we didn't eat, they are apparently known for their pizzas and sliders.

Great wine and good food
Wonderful atmosphere for couples but not overly romantic.

Very enjoyable and a place to take friends or a date

Best Happy Hour Downtown
This restaurant has delicious food and an excellent wine list. With all happy hour options - food and wine at $4 each, this is a can't miss!

My brother took our mom and myself out for dinner during restaurant week and we had the best time. The food was beyond delicious and the wine was great! We talked about how nice of a dinner we had for days after. Our server was very knowledgeable and consistent. We did not go without a full glass of water. I have been to Social before and also had a great experience but this time was much better. Hats off to the chefs for the Herb Crusted Salmon!!! It was excellent as well as the mussels. I will recommend Social to anybody that wants a fine dining atmosphere with reasonable prices! And of course DELICIOUS food!

RestAurant week find
We were greeted by a smiling face,helpful but not cloying, our waitress was great and timed our courses as we requested, and the meal was memorable, with interesting wine pairings offered for an additional fee- fun and well worth it. One choice altered easily as my friend didn't like sweet wine(period) offered with dessert. We both agreed we would try the place again and recommend it. It was relatively busy, but we could talk easily without yelling!

Great Dining Experience
This is the 3rd time that I have dined at the Social Resturant. Like the first two visits the food, service and atmosphere were wonderful. I highly recommend that you visit Social Resturant.

Great food and atmosphere
We went to Social for a birthday celebration this past weekend and had a great time. The atmosphere inside is great for a girls' night out. Everyone in our party ordered something different and we were all pleased with our meals. The service was very good. Overall, it was a great experience and we'd definitely go back.

Went to Social with a group of girls for a Bachelorette. We ordered pizzas, bruschetta, and the mussels. Everything was wonderful.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Was pleasantly surprised with our dining experience last Saturday night at Social Wine Bar & Restaurant! The ambiance was very contemporary and fun, the service was excellent and the food was VERY good! It seemed a VERY popular place for "bachelorette" parties! We counted 7 or 8 tables of them!!! My husband LOVED his lamb dish, our friends raved about the chicken and I enjoyed a fabulous pizza! The best part was enjoying the "flights" of wine....I sampled a good pour of delicious "roses" from 3 different countries....my friend did the same with "whites". The flights were about $15.00 and was the equivalent of 2 full glasses! We thought a good deal! Would recommend Social and will DEFINITELY go back!

Energetic, great service
A nice find from the Art Mag. High energy dining with down to earth flavor. We sat near the window to the kitchen and enjoyed watching the chef's prepare meals. The attention to detail was like watching an artist with his palette. We ate varied selections from the menu, Blue cheese chips, coq a vin pizza, lamb and drum. Every dish was tasty and satisfying, will definitely be back in the future!

We tried this restaurant for
We tried this restaurant for the first time on a Saturday night, it was packed.Dispite all the people,our server was very attentive and friendly. We had the shrimp eggrolls to start which were addictive.At the table next to us they were enjoying what looked to be a fabulous caesar salad.The scallop dish was the best we had ever tasted, perfectly seared and buttery.The hanger steak, and black drum fish also worth a try.This restaurant is also known for their wine selections which they are happy to pair to your particular dish,or your can order a wine flight to taste several different selections. We will definitely go back!

For fun and food, not quiet chat
Pulsating energy and a youthful crowd mark the ambiance here, though we baby-boomers were welcomed and well treated, The wine list is extensive; food and wine pairings, including "flights" of three wines recommended with each main course, make this a sensible destination for those who enjoy eclectic and imaginative dishes and like to sample some unusual wine selections from around the world. The home-made specialty pizzas looked appealing as well, and there is an extensive selection of cocktails and beers. We were visiting Charleston on a short vacation and would gladly go back to this restaurant for the cuisine and wines, though the noise level made conversation across the table challenging.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
This place was a great spot for a less fancy, more relaxing, wine-filled dinner in Charleston. I'd definitely recommend.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Social had great food! Everything was excellent! The noise level left a little to be desired. There were points in the night I knew my husband was talking, but I couldn't hear a word. Not the best place for a romantic date, but definitely a great find for foodies!

Great food and wine. Nice
Great food and wine. Nice to have flight of wine paired with meal. My only complaint is that it was a little loud
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
I absolutely loved Social I love how the wine paired so well with the food. I made a reservation for 6:45 and I was able to get some of the best appetizers i have had in a long time for a very reasonable price before 7:00. This is definitely one of my new favorite place I can't wait to go again.
