First time here and I really enjoyed everything about it. Great experience!
I rarely, if ever review restaurants. I feel the need to do so after two average visits to MAD Social. I've been to MAD Social on a week day evening. The food and service was average. I wanted to give it another try cause its Sunday brunch, with "bottomless mimosas", received good online reviews. (There is a two hour limit for brunch seating.) Again, the food was average. (Specifically, my Short Rib Benedict meat was dry.) Most importantly, our server Amanda C. was rude. We arrived at 11am. At 1:1:5 she said, "I'm gonna need my table." Regardless, of the two hour limit placed on diners, she had NO tact in the delivery of the message. There was a familiarity in the delivery that may not ever be used with other patrons, if you know what I mean. It was ultimately unprofessional and completely rude. Her rudeness resulted in this poor review of MAD Social, her service, and another server benefiting from our continued patronage of the restaurant shortly thereafter when two additional friends joined us, at a different table, for lunch. We had several additional rounds of [regular] drinks and meals. We will patronage and recommend MAD Social again, but with a caveat about the spotty food and service.
Warm, wonderful atmosphere with superb service and unique food. Fit for foodies, great for a date or just to relax w friends.
Great food & the best mimosa deal in the city! We will be back.
Loved it! Got the huevos rancheros and pop tarts OMG SO GOOD! Hailee was amazing (sorry if I spelled her name wrong) and I will definitely be requesting a table in her section when my friends and I come back. BEST BRUNCH SPOT EVER
We struck gold on our date night at Mad Social! We were exploring the area and took a gamble on this restaurant, having never been there before. They had just changed the menu, so it was different than the burger-heavy look of the foods in the yelp photos, but everything we ordered was absolutely delicious. Every server and host was so kind and enthusiastic about discussing the food. The portions are a bit smaller- you may not be bringing anything home. But it’s definitely worth a visit for the incredible and unusual flavors they create in their meals. We will definitely go back!
Amazing food. Must try!
Service and food was outstanding. A wonderful night. Thank you!!
Outstanding service from start to finish. Went for brunch and the bottomless mimosas. We were not disappointed at all.
Excellent selection for our pre Bulls game dinner. New menu had great options; fun drinks/good selection; excellent service. Definitely will be back
Love doing bottomless brunch here! Fun times.
Gret experience, cute restaurant with outstanding food! We were there on a Saturday brunch. Yo need to try the churro chicken and waffles and the breakfast sandwich. So Good!
Nia is absolutely incredible!!! We did the 8 course tasting menu and we’re just amazed at how good everything was! They have unique flavor combinations that exceeded all expectations. Brooke is incredibly kind and offered great recommendations on what to order and background on some of the food. We don’t live in Chicago but will definitely be going back to Nia whenever we are in town.
Pretty mediocre...food was not bad, but forgettable...service was fine...ambiance was ok...I liked the low lighting but it was very loud and the servers bumped into our high top table several times which was annoying...to their defense, the table/booth set up is very strange and doesn’t seem to work very well in the space
We had a fantastic time at Mad Social. The new menu is delicious and Addy did a great job as our waitress. The service was great. I am excited about the new menu. There isn't a dish I haven't loved so far.
Great brunch spot!
Our favorite neighborhood restaurant , love the new menu options.
They recently changed their menu and the new menu is excellent.
Great food. Great service. Hot sauce needs to be sold separately so I can take some home!
The experience was great, except the restaurant had my reservation for the following week and not the day I made it for. We ended up finding seats at the bar, which worked out well. It was pretty crowded, so we got lucky to get the seats.
My boyfriend is italian and loves Stephanie restaurants in past but we both agree the Iranian choices we made were terrible. My calamari was rubber and didn’t even taste grilled and his short rib pockets were chewy and we threw away the leftovers when we went home. Not a fan
Our server was very attentive and the food was wonderful. I was surprised it was tapas style since not all of the dishes seemed like they would go well together and some seemed like it’d be hard to share.
The staff went above and beyond to accommodate my party
We sat at the bar and Ethan was amazing, very good service
Had a great time at MAD Social. Can't wait to go back. The brussels sprouts were incredible, the vibe of the restaurant was perfect, just what I was looking for. The manager and waitress were so kind and perfectly attentive, not overboard but not ignoring.
Came here for brunch to do the bottomless mimosas. Got there at 1:30pm and was told that the bottomless ends at 3pm although the menu and website says 2 hours of bottomless. Anyhow, went for it anyway but needed to wait 10 minutes before we received our first round. If I have 30 minutes less time than what I should, I at least expect you to get me started ASAP. Nonetheless, food was still great and service got a little better towards the end. Would still recommend and would visit again.
Food was great. Staff was great. Atmosphere was great. Will most definitely be back soon!
The food was very good and it was so nice that the music was low enough you could actually hear the conversations at your table!
Tres bonne ambiance, le personnel est toujoirs sympathique les plats sont delicieux, jadore ce restaurant jy viens a chaque fois que je suis a Chicago
Always Good Always Fun, the pear ravioli was awesome and the mad burger and fries... hummm
A very nice place
This was our 4th visit. Loved the "pillows" and stuffed jalapenos; didn't love the tuna tacos so much. Drinks were fabulous as always.
Great place. Went
there before a Blackhawks game- great game day specials
Great spot for brunch! Aesthetic and great energy!
We loved it......The food was excellent. Great wait staff.....well received when we got there.
Mad Social has a magical ambiance, the food is extremely tasty, and the service is friendly and attentive!
The brussel sprouts and skirt steak were amazing! I'd definitely come back for both of those again!
Food & atmosphere was great!
Food and drinks were great!
Waiter mixed-up order, didn’t really apologize and then we waited for one of our group’s dishes while the other two grew cold.
