    We've dined frequently at The Social. We find the food to be consistently good. Most recently, we had two very well made cocktails (a Manhattan and a Margarita). I started with a green salad with some root vegetables. It was nothing fancy but it was good. My entree was the Luxe Mac 'n Cheese which was quite good. My wife had a petite filet with brussell sprouts on the side which she was very happy with. Management is working very hard to improve the service challenges they've had in the past. We think the Social is worth trying and we hope that it has a long presence in Castle Pines.

    While this is not an all-you-can-eat brunch buffet, both men in our party seemed completely satisfied. One got the steak and eggs and the other the Denver omelette. The food was well prepared, the tricolor potatoes were excellent, and the mimosas very good. Great for a lazy Sunday morning!

    A chicken breast, mashed potatoes, brussell sprouts and pasta with shrimp make a plain but good meal . When followed up with an unusual dessert - crepes with mascarpone - it makes a good meal a satisfying experience. We continue to enjoy this neighborhood spot.

    The best thing about The Social is the room and the surrounding development - very attractive and interesting. Food is ok - not bad- just not very good. Service was ok also - they try hard but they really don't know much about food, wine, etc. But kudos for the effort. If you're a local it's worth going to but I wouldn't make this a destination spot.

    New faces in an old space, different food, into which we were welcomed and served promptly. Busy and noisy but a good indoor-outdoor vibe. The salad was fresh and the steaks well prepared. My wife had the filet with mashed potatoes and was pleased. I had the special, also a steak which was cooked as I had requested and came with a port reduction sauce, making a change from the usual. We shared a blondie with caramel ice cream for dessert which was enough for two. A good start - we will be back to try more adventuresome food.

    Took a chance as past experience at the restaurant at this location under a different name was a worst ever experience. However, we were pleasantly surprised that everything had changed. It's been a long time since I had a meal this well prepared in the area. Everything was fresh and every course from the appetizer, to the salad, to the two entrees, and finally dessert was interesting and delicious. The service was very attentive and friendly. We will definitely be back.

  • Although the food was good
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 1/21/2014
    Although the food was good at The Social, the poor service really took away from the experience. We arrived early evening, and the restaurant was nearly empty. We sat at the bar to have a drink, and it took the bartender nearly 10 minutes to finally acknowledge us sitting right in front of him and then to assist us. Once seated at our table, our waiter couldn't tell us what the soup of the day was, and was completely uninformed about the menu. In order for this restaurant to succeed, much more attention needs to be paid to the caliber of the wait staff and the service expectations overall.

    Has the makings of a great place, just needs to perfect the delivery. Food was good, not everything served hot, but had great flavor and preparation was good. Seemed to be a mix up in who our server was, once Erin realized this, she was very attentive and provided great service. Miles, the owner, came by to greet us and seemed genuinely receptive of feedback and invited us to come again which we will do. Mussels were excellent, we don't like coconut, so they prepared in lemon, garlic, wine and they were some of the best we've had. Beef ribs were very tender and delicious. scallops preparation was unique with crispy quinoa and butternut squash and were fabulous! All in all, food was excellent and we will return.

    While we love the location and food -- continue to go at least 2-3 times a month -- the service is spotty. We get waiters who talk too much and don't know how to open wine bottles or pour enough for a taster. The service does not match the level of food or price paid to go to The Social

    Food was just ok, pasta maker was broken....? Real issue was the service. Took way too long to get drinks and food and the place was pretty empty. Then the bill came and everything was doubled. It was corrected, but if a drink order hadn't been screwed up I probably would have just handed over my card without looking like usual and would have been screwed. The waiter's response was, "Oh, that has happened a few tinmes lately." Concerning.

    Having been told by numerous friends that The Social was great.. I brought my "foodie" out of town friend for dinner. Everything was outstanding. From the apps to desert.. top shelf. Service was only average.. but nothing to take from the quality of the meal. I understand they started as an entirely small plates menu but I was glad to see a move to half small plates and half full meal options. I will be back soon.

    Took a group of left over Thanksgiving guests who couldn't eat another bite of leftovers, and we had a marvelous dinner. Our server Erin was wonderful and managed all 9 of us with ease and patience. The specialty french fries and fried brussel sprouts were awesome to start the evening with, and we all enjoyed our meals. I know the pasta with Wild Boar ragu was a big hit, as were the steak roll ups with jalapeno. Always glad to show off this unique restaurant to friends!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 11/23/2013
    This is our fourth visit to The Social. Not a lot of choices here in C.R. and this is becoming one of our favorites. They are adding a few new dishes every couple of weeks. Good idea since we seem to always order our favorites and the new ones are appealing. This is a "Small" plate menu although they have added a few steaks on there for those who like the idea of a full meal. We usually order four of five small plates and works well for a whole meal. Don't leave out the desserts. Excellent and well priced.

    Heard the Social that was good for veggies, gluten free people and used natural foods. The food may have been natural but nothing else to recommend. Food was ok, servicer was nice but had to ask kitchen several times about the food and was clearly over extended. Waited on tables at all ends of the place. Very short staffed. Asked not to be seated next to a cold window but hostess said we could not have a different table. A minute later took us to another table saying the next party for that table was not for 2 hours. Ugh? Speciafically told them what I could not eat but was served it anyway even after speaking to Chef. Chef seemed not happy to be bothered. Not one veggie entre. So much for being veggie freindly.
