We had a wonderful dining experience. A group of 8 women celebrating a BIG birthday. We were treated wonderfully & they were very attentive. They accommodated our food restrictions & our tight time schedule. 3 of our guests had never dined here before and are looking forward to coming back for romantic nights with there husbands. Everyone enjoyed the food & cocktails. It was a great start to a great evening!

I can honestly say that I've never had a bad meal here. Food quality and flavor are / were great. The cost is certainly in line with other places. My only comment would be, the service staff sometimes seems rushed but after firmly telling them that we were in no hurry they were great. I will be back again.

Not A Chain!
We have been meaning to try the Social for a long time. Right around the corner, but due to the unfortunate location never was interested. We've missed out! Delicious food with a great selection and outstanding service. A neighborhood gem in an unlikely place.

Tucked away in a corner of an older shopping mall, this place is very easy to overlook, but it's worth stopping in to enjoy the decor, the food and the great service. Would definitely recommend for a special occasion. The waiter brought us cake on the house and guessed whose birthday it was because she was reading a card. Was actually a Mother's Day card but we were impressed at how observant he was.

Will Go Again
The meal overall was very good but some things did not "pop"... Like the crab cake apertizer and the mushroom risotto. The osso buco was extremely tender. Ambience is nice, especially at night when the ambient light from outside is gone ( a bit too bright during daylight). Service was very good as the waiter honored a request to have a slower pace meal. Noise from the adjacent bar area could be an issue if you are looking for a quiet/romantic dining experience. Will definitely go there again.

We tried The Social on a whim after looking at the Open Table list for our area. We will go back because of the outstanding food and service. Our server was charming and had a great sense of humor as well as being efficient without being officious. We each tried different dishes and everything was unbelievably good from the Asparagus soup to the blueberry cheesecake. The osso buco was out of this world as was the Cuban style steak.

Who new that buried in a shopping center there would be this fabulous restaurant! If I had not found this on Open Table I would never have found it.

A little disapointing.
The crab cakes were good as well as the duck. But the escargot were disapointing, very bland. I didn't like the green (pesto?) sauce. No garlic or butter. Halibut and jambolaya were also good.

Delicious food, friendly waitstaff
Innovative menu, fantastic food, from appetizer through dessert, everything we had was outstanding! This was our first time but will certainly not be our last. Everything was fresh, perfectly cooked and perfectly seasoned! Creative salads, scrumptious desserts, and fabulous main courses. Highly recommend!

This is one of the best and my favorite restaurant in the Santa Clarita Valley. They have 101 different martini's to enjoy with your meal. From appetizers to desert you won't be disappointed. My favorites are the social salad, the duck breast, the skirt steak, the lamb and all of their fish. Great mushroom risotto.

saturday was a very busy evening at The Social. even though there were very few open tables and the bar was doing a brisk business, the service and food were terrific as usual. we've eaten here a number of times and have always had an enjoyable experience. anyone who has ever joined us has thoroughly enjoyed the food and experience.

Get find in Santa Clarita
This is one of my special occassion local restaurants in Santa Clarita. The owner Patrick is very passionate about the way the food is prepared and that everything is just right. They also have the largest martini menu and all the martini's I have had are awesome.
My favorite dishes are the duck, rack of lamb, skirt steak and halibut. They have great appetizers like scallops wrapped in bacon and wonderful soups and salads if you want something light. It is NOT a restaurant for small children.
Although it is on the procer side it is well worth what you get and the experience.

Hidden Gem Delicious!
Had a problem finding this restaurant, but oh so glad we persisted!! From the time we arrived Mary seated us as requested and took our drink order, Everything we requested, Mary said no problem; turns out their incredible chef makes it from scratch! The pasta dinner was perfect and the parmesan cheese was as good as I remembered in Italy!!! My husband completely cleaned his full plate of Halibut, done to perfection along with delicious casserole potatoes, and vegetable, even though he had eaten almost all of the bread and olive spread previously. We will definitely return as soon as possible!! Great food and service deserves a huge THANK YOU!

Outrageously good martinis!
We went for a birthday outing Sunday night. The service was impeccable, the martinis (of which they have over 200 choices!) were delectable! My boyfriend ordered a steak and I ordered their special of the night, which was pork tenderloin. Unfortunately, both of them were overcooked and dry. We have been there several times and this was the first time we had a less than perfect meal. Perhaps they were just having a bad night. We will be back.

Don't judge a Chef by it's cover!
We chose this based on Open Table reviews. It's located in a strip mall, one of many in this quadrant of the intersection. Had to wonder if we made a good choice. We are adventurous diners and what a surprise gem in the Santa Clarita Valley. The food was outstanding!! We could have been on Melrose or in NYC if we closed our eyes. We will return for more Chef delights. The Duck, Salmon and Top Sirloin are all winners

This was a great place to have dinner. The bar was great, with an excellent selection. Service was perfect and the meals were well crafted and delicious

Always a winner
Had a great time with some friends on our mom's night out. We all wanted a nice place to eat with a great bar selection. The other two in my party had not ever been there so it was a treat. Our service was wonderful from beginning to end.

Great Date Night
We arrived around 5:30 on a Friday night. We sat down in the dining room, which wasn't too busy; although the bar was lively. Service was impecible; manager even stopped by the table. They have a wide variety of martinis, so hubby had the Jolly Rancher, which he loved! We started off with calamari and lobster bisque-both were delicious. Now it was around 6PM, and the dining room was pretty full! I had the lobster ravioli (yes, I love lobster), and hubby had the New York Steak. Ravioli was rich and very tasty. Hubby liked the steak, although maybe a little too done for him - he likes it pretty rare. For my dessert, I had the King Kong martini, and hubby had the fruit sponge cake. Both scrumptious! We can't wait to try this place again!

Have been in the Santa Clarita area for nine years and just found this resturant through Open Table. The martini menu is great, over 85 selections! The food was fantastic and the service very good.
I would recommend this resturant, and I plan to return.

Nice find in shopping mall.
Nice find in shopping mall. Came from out of town, hungry and found restaurant on Yelp. Good food and pleasant ambiance

Using an OpenTable search we found this little gem in a strip mall the evening before Thanksgiving while making our way down Interstate 5 from Northern Cal to points south (exiting just in time to avoid the traffic congestion). Most of the action was in the noisy bar but service in the restaurant portion was slow nonetheless. Caribbean coconut satay was out of this world, "small" Caesar salad (which was NOT small) contained real anchovy and was quite delicious - and a great value at $4. Lobster ravioli was a bit salty but still very good and the shrimp gnocchi with pesto sauce was excellent. Wine list was not extensive but reasonably priced; we brought in a bottle of pinot noir and corkage was only $8.
