Need to improve their reservations
I made a reservation through Open Table. One of my companions arrived with the open table reservation in hand and was told there was no reservation under my name. Three of us were already seated. She was told to sit and wait for us. After we wondered where she was, one of us walked to the front and found her. The server also had to be prompted to come to us so we could pay. On the other hand, the food was fine.

Solid business lunch
I took a client there for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. The food was well done, the room was professional yet casual. The only knock was that the service staff didn't have everything together, but this is a new place, so I'm sure they'll work out the kinks. I'll go back, not only for lunch, but after work for a drink.

First Time there last week, I had a reservation, initially they seated us right by the door, but moved us on my request with no issue. New Bedford Fish stew, which all 3 of us had was very good, and the bread was excellent. (Good bread is always a tell with restaurants). I would also like to try it for dinner as have heard good things about their dinner menu.

For a brand new place, I was expecting a lot of kinks. But there weren't any. The bartender was very attentive. Clam flat bread and fish taco were both very tasty. Will have to add this place to the regular rotation to try all the othet dishes.

I very much like the decor and ambience at Society on High. It's in a competitive area (the Financial District), where there are lots of other choices, so it has to perform. Food has been consistently good, but perhaps priced on the high side - or portions could be larger. A change in this regard, either way, would make it a "must come back" place.

Great new spot!
I waited a few months for them to settle into the new location because I know how difficult it can be opening a new restaurant -- even for veteran restauranteurs. Society on High was quick to work out their kinks because when I went in for lunch the other day, I was impressed with how smooth our service and how tasty our food was. We both had fish (my sister the salmon and I the swordfish special). For a quick lunch, this was quite delicious. I always expect good things out of downtown restaurants. Many, sadly, disappoint but SoH was great! Look forward to returning there and enjoying the outdoor patio.

I choose this restaurant for the location and easy menu options. Reservations were easy, conversations were at comfortable noise level, service was good, prices reasonable. I would recommend this restaurant.

Service was good. Food was great. We had a big group and the service was swift -- not a lot of waiting. Very attentive.

For a new restaurant I thought
For a new restaurant I thought it was very good. Service was excellent. I had the scallops and they were cooked to perfection. The gnocchi that came with the scallops were not traditional gnocchi. These appeared fried which made them a bit heavier. But served over kale was a nice balance. Overall, a nice dinner. I would dine there in the future.

Nice for working lunch. After
Nice for working lunch. After 9 too loud- Poor music choice. Too bad as it could be a fun place due to its location for late work night dinner/drinks.

Society on High is a great addition to the local scene, good burger, and other food I have had there is creative and well done.

Great food, disjointed service
The menu options were wonderfully creative, the presentation was well done and the taste was truly outstanding. Unfortunately the service took away from the experience. Two pieces of bread were placed on our table for three. No additional bread was brought out despite us asking for it. Our waiter disappeared for long periods of time. Water glasses went unfilled. No one checked on us after our food was finally brought out to us to see how everything was and did we want more iced tea, etc. I'll give it one more shot though.

Great Addition to the Area
Glad to have a new reasonable spot with a great vibe for lunch or afterwork. Food is excellent for a great bar type experience, very good selection for lunch and afterwork.

Food was delicious. I had Fried Chesapeake Bay Oyster Po Boy sandwich which would highly recommend trying I w/fries.... Trust me and live it up and get these fries - they were wicked awesome! Everyone in our party liked their food. It is new so it clean and modern looking, and seem to have a very good bar scene. It was cool that day, but had it been warmer out, we could have eaten outside. We went @ high noon and it was very busy so it was noisy, but definitely would recommend and would go again.

Sat outside on Patio so noise
Sat outside on Patio so noise was not an issue Food was good, had open faced Flank Steak Sandwich and Side Salad. Fried Calamari was good, though portion was a bit small for table shared portion.

Great food, fine service
Food is great, and so are the drinks. The service was very pleasant, but they did keep forgetting things we ordered, or sending them to the wrong table, so not great.

I went there with a party of 8 on a Thursday night for dinner. The service was excellent. There were only a few items on the menu which can be a little difficult for picky eaters. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the presentation was excellent. The bar area was very energetic and full of young professionals. The dining area was a little quieter. My only complaint is that there are no round tables for bigger groups, so we had 8 people at a long rectangular table and couldn't talk to everyone at once.

Great food fast
The quality of the food is excellent and they get you in and out quick yet comfortably. Great for a casual business lunch.
