A word from SOCIETY Dining Lounge
Yaletown's Most Unpredictable Dining Lounge.

We all love the feeling that anything can happen. And Society is a totally unexpected kind of Yaletown dining lounge. Here, opposites will come together to create all-new pleasures. Comfortable meets chic. Warmth meets undeniable cool. Light humour meets dark sensuality. This is a place where anything can happen.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I went here after dining at other Glowbal restaurants. The menu is more kid and teenager friendly. I would suggest going to this place as a special treat for kids with their cotton candy martini (a martini glass full of pink fluffy cotton candy). Overall as people not in their targeted demographic we found the food okay and service okay. It was odd that we didn't appear to have one server, it seemed each interaction we had was with a new staff member but they were all pleasant. Only thing I would say was off was the wait time for the drinks. We were seated facing the bar and saw all the staff talking but our two simple drinks (a glass of wine and a gin and tonic) took much longer than it should have."

  • "I would not pay regular price at this place. Servers were all trainees... my food going to wrong table... Food is pretty good... milk shake great. "

  • "Everything was fantastic!! The Candy Collins drink (alcoholic beverage) -- highly recommend it if u like cotton candy. The food was flavorful (I had the salmon and my friend had the Philly cheesesteak) and a good portion. The menu has something for everyone. The staff were all friendly and attentive. I would definitely come back here again (especially on the day when the entire food menu is 50% off...call to find out the day). This is a great restaurant. 👍"

  • "Society needs to advise OT members clearly, and in advance of booking, that reservations do not earn the usual 100 points. We enjoyed the dining but this sure puts a sore after taste to the whole experience."

  • "Jesse was absolutely wonderful. This is the first time we have been to the Society and went there to celebrate my wife's birthday with my two young children. All of the staff was wonderful but Jesse went the extra mile with her service, smile, and to top it off, a complimentary cotton candy for my kids who thought they were in heaven. I didn't know what to expect as this is not the type of place we typically go to with two kids but were pleasantly surprised. And, the food was terrific! We'll be back. "

  • "We booked Society for the atmosphere and late night dessert menu. The place was fun and lively which is what we wanted. We ordered the dessert platter, which we were all disappointed with. Nothing on the platter besides the chocolate cake was really that great. That's why I gave it just a good rating. I would not order that again. however, the drinks, appetizer and milkshakes were really great. The place itself is fun and great for a youngish group, for a late night snack."

  • "The menu reminded me of the foods I ate as a child, but with a more grown up feel. Highly recommend the Gnocchi Poutine & Donut Balls! Fun atmosphere for a girls night out."

  • "was amazing , we go to tratoria in kits on west 4th all the time .i herd about society through there web site and stumbled across it only to the fact it was the earliest time available for reservations on valentines day. after i read up about it and read there menu i was quite excited to eat there . i proposed to my girlfriend half an hour before our reservations at 9 , in stanley park and it was the perfect place to finish off one romantic and very special night . i had the hamburger and my fiance had the casadia , i usually drown my hamburgers in ketchup , after one bite of this one the thought to ask for some didint even cross my mind it was amazing thankyou society for making our perfect night finish perfectly"

  • "I went for valentines day. The noise level was ridiculously loud, I could barely hear myself think. I had to lean forward and yell across the table to talk to my boyfriend. Not very romantic. The food wasn't bad. It was very cold inside the restaurant. It was nice of then to hold my reservation as I was 10 minutes late."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I would describe the decor at Society as modern, cozy, and a bit quirky, which is great. A friend cautioned me that the noise level was pretty loud, but it wasn't unbearable. Unfortunately I found the food a bit inconsistent, ranging from pretty darn good to only so-so. I came here for Dine Out Vancouver, so the pricing was decent, but for what they were charging on the regular menu, I would hope the food was a bit better. Overall, I'd say this is a good place to start for someone just starting to explore the dining scene in Vancouver. Its modern, energetic, and shows the potential for how good food in Vancouver can be, without breaking the bank."

  • "The food was poor quality, the worst Dine Out dinner ever. It was very disappointing as my other Dine Out experiences were excellent."

  • "Was happy with the food - every course was delicious (loved the lobster sheppard's pie). Our service was very slow. Long wait between the starter and main (wasn't paced very well), plus one of our mains was missed, however the server/manager made up for it with a comp drink. Overall good experience."

  • "Nothing wrong with menu, staff or decor and I am a HUGE fan of Glowbal Co. restaurants. The music was so deafening inside (we did not want the terrace) we could not communicate with each other or our server. We went somewhere nearby where the music was at a tolerably loud level. ALL restaurants here think that music played loud creates ambience and forget asking them to turn it down. That makes me an old fogey and I am, but I don't go to a restaurant for the soundtrack. Rating for food & service should be "n/a", because we did not eat there. I know the quality of Glowbal Co. food, so I am sure the food there is great. In spite of our negative reaction, staff remained gracious and at least pretended to show understanding for our complaint."

  • "Not usually a person to write bad reviews but this was a true lacklustre experience. Overbooked, understaffed forgetting to serve drinks, refill water and wrong dessert. They did the basics right but some of the food lacked favoured or too salty. Disappointing for the cost and planned menu."

  • "We liked the food but we could not talk to each other because of the music."

  • "Loved this place! It was truly a gem that was recommended to us by the locals (we're from San Francisco). Food was really fun, drinks were great and service was fabulous! I recommend the lobster corn dogs and Eddie as a server!"

  • "I took my best friend here for her 30th birthday, and our experience was amazing! From the time we were greeted at the host stand to the time we left, we were extremely well taken care of, not to mention the food was delicious! We had an awesome time, can't wait to go back!"

  • "We tried Society. The ambiance is gorgeous, the staff are helpful, the drinks are weak and the menu is dismal. Just order the non-alcohol versions of drinks, it will save you money and give the same effect. Between the 3 diners, we had truffled mac and cheese served with a green salad and french fries. The sweat burger was so sloppy to eat and the pulled pork so flavorless, un edible. Shrimp quesadilla was average and served with potato chips. The milkshake drinks were fun and tasty. I understand that I am not their target audience, but who did they have in mind when they put chicken wings in cocacola. Go to society to try the cotton candy drink or a milkshake."

  • "Great service, fun food options...however, it was almost annoyingly loud. If you turned down the music slightly it would be nice to be able not to yell while having a conversation."

  • "The music was a little too loud but other then that i had a great time! I was on a 1st date and the staff and music was outstanding.Had so much fun! The bill came and I was not impressed that you guys charge $30 for a half lite of red wine,thats a little excessive. overall its a very fun place with good ambiance. Brad Gold"

  • "Being a part of the Glowbal Group, Society had to had some fanciness. And it did! But because of its ambience, setting, and food menu, it is also great for a casual walk-in. If ever you're out already with a casual attire, Society is one of those semi-fancy, yet non-intimidating restaurants that can make anyone fit in and feel comfortable."

  • "Society always has great food...and to get 50% off food on Tuesday nights is a BONUS and a GREAT reason to head out for dinner."

  • "Too cold and loud inside, and the entrance needs some improvements as the outside area looks nicer to sit. The food is not the greatest..."

  • "Went here with friends looking for a place with good appetizers and a good place to catch up with my fellow nurses. Found the atmosphere to be great for our age category (22-28). Food was great, our server was outstanding. He ensured everything we needed was there and checked on our drinks frequently. My only not so positive comment is we found the music to be a bit loud for a Tuesday evening. It was a bit hard to conversate however the rest of my visit was superb like always! I frequently travel from Surrey to Van and often go to glowbal group places and they never disappoint! Thank u!"

  • "I came here casually on a surprisingly quiet Sunday with friends. When the food arrived (I ordered the Mac and Cheese with potato and truffle gratin) , I was a bit disappointed by the portions, but ended up being quite full. The salad was a bit odd because it came directly on a wood board, so that did not allow them to put salad dressing on it, making it a bit dry. I also ordered a long island with a cotton candy top which was cute and I enjoyed the novelty of the drink. Sadly enough, the waiters didn't read the reservation to know it was my birthday and when we ordered desert, they served the candled cake to my friend. :/ The triple chocolate cake was very decadent and a bit on the rich side so you couldn't eat too much at a time."

  • "Drinks took 20+ mins to arrive including the waters. btw mojitos are subpar. I'm a huge fan of the meatballs (despite it not really being "kobe") at all glowbal group restaurants...which to be honest is why I'm even giving the food rating 2*. This time however the meatballs were cold...I thought it may have been the ricotta cheese they infused this time but no, the meat was cold also. Drinks round 2: server spills entire drink on me. Not a big deal it happens. However, courtesy would be to comp the drink if nothing else (I've been comp'd for far less than a spilled drink mind you). Not common practice at Society apparantly In sum, although it was a 50% off food night who knew it meant 50% off quality of beverages, food and....service!!?!"

  • "Great waiter. Nice outdoor patio watching the world go by. And enough things on the menu to satisfy diverse group of friends. Food was a little cold getting to us. But tasty and interesting for out-of-towners who ate everything down to the huge junk food dessert tray."

  • "Wow, my first time here and this place absolutley rocks !! It is very chic, very girly and and gives you that high end glamour feeling. The service was also amazing.

  • "This is my fourth time at Society and I love bringing new diners to this place. This is my first time since the menu overhaul so I saw disappointed to see some of my favourites were missing from the menu (taquitos) but the new selections were great. As usual, I try to get a table on the patio as it can get quite noisy inside and the staff was great about setting that up when I made my reservation. Will definitely be back in the future."

  • "We had reservation and were seated at a terrible booth right beside the kitchen. We politely asked to move and we were taken up to the lounge. It was more quiet (relatively speaking) and less social at the time, but better than staring at the kitchen. Our waitress in the lounge was Jana, she went above and beyond, even brought a complimentary little peice of birthday cake! By 10 when we were leaving it was getting very loud, large groups around us were taking over. We had a hard time talking without yelling. But it was a lounge so to be expected, but there were a lot of yellers by chance unfortunately. Food was good, we enjoyed out food and drink."
