We were 5 people for brunch and two of the orders came at least 10 minutes before the rest. Also, the lobster Benedict was exceptionally stingy on the lobster considering the $29 price tag.

Not sure if we will return.

We were in the private dining area. The food was generally good. The first course came out quickly. However, we proceeded to wait about an hour for our mains when the restaurant was empty. When the mains came, my hamburger bun was crusty due to sitting underneath the heat lamps for too long. Fortunately, the restaurant apologized and quickly switched it and gave the table complimentary dessert.

The ambiance of this place is the primary reason to visit. The food is pretty good and the service is about as good as you can expect, considering the number of guests the wait staff has to manage. This restaurant seats a lot of people. The patio is nice during the summertime and is my favourite area to sit. Not the best French cuisine you'll even have, but worth a visit!

Lovely place with an enjoyable atmosphere, but slightly hard to access. We'll trained, attentive staff. Great wine list. Wonderful items on the food menu, but the selection is a little small. Can get a little pricy after a few wines, so wouldn't suggest it for everyday dining.

La Societe has a real French Bistro feel. It's decor is a reminder of Bofinger in Paris.
Food is fine although the service is always a little slow.
In Summer, they open the doors and have a number of tables on the terrace one floor above Bloor Street.

I went to La Société with a friend who was visiting from Vancouver. We studied French together in university so I thought it would be fitting to have dinner together at a French restaurant.

The ambiance was inviting and the service was impeccable. I was very impressed with information provided in the wine menu and was able to choose a wine that would pair with our menu selection. You have to try the Duck Confit!

It was a wonderful experience and meal for the both of us. I will definitely come back on my own or with a friend—I’m definitely a repeat customer! Thank you!

Wed lunch: nice restaurant, French bistro, finishing a bit worn. Once seated had to request a server after sitting for 10 min. Ordered drinks and decided on appetizers and mains. Drinks did not arrive. We ordered food, my choice was unavailable, switched to salmon. I like my salmon med rare to med, was assured by server that it would not be overcooked. Wine and drinks arrived at the same time. Appetizers were good, wine was good, drinks good. Salmon arrived and was med well. I asked them to redo it, med rare. My partner was almost finished his main when salmon reappeared. This time it was seared about 2-3 mm in and sashimi temperature on interior. I ate the ends of the fillet only. Wine glasses constantly empty. Asked to see maitre’d, showed up in about 10 min after conferring with server and bartender! Overall very poor service and unimpressive kitchen. Lots of much nicer places to enjoy lunch!
