We had a reservation for a small Birthday party. Our table was ready for us and the server was excellent. She brought a dessert with a candle to celebrate the birthday. Very nice touch!

Really busy when we showed up on a Friday night, happy I made reservations for us 5 but because it was so busy our waiter was often a few minutes late following up on things like refills and our bill but the manager was circling around and was helpful with beer recommendations and getting what we needed. Overall great experience and will return.

Our waitress was super friendly and helpful

Food was delish! We had the social dip to start which was some of the best dip I’ve had in awhile.

Place is very loud

We had a lovely experience at Sociable Tavern in Brantford. Our server, Shannon, ( I believe) was outstanding and very knowledgeable on the menu. It was our first time here so we did have a lot of questions. There was something on the menu for everyone. We had the wineter special flatbread with pomegranates - delicious. And a very juicy burger. The aioli sauces are a must try. The manager also was visibly seen on the floor doing table checks and clearing plates away. Will be back!!!!

The food was good and the place was comfortable . The prices seem a bit high for the food available, but selection was great!
Our server Nick was great, he was very helpful with our questions and quick to check on us after we had our food served. He was definitely very knowledgeable about the menu and friendly to talk to him! Good job

waited 1.5 hours for food
made a reservation and they were going to seat us in the worst possible seat.
on the plus we didn't complain and they did comp us, but it was pretty unacceptable considering people all around us were being served.
also I believe it is owned by beer town and I love there veggie burger, this one is NOTHING like what they serve at Beer town, it was horrible. tasted like a frozen burger patty.
overall disappointing will not be back.

Sociable Kitchen was really good! Our waitress, I think her name was Kayla, was so nice and super helpful! One thing I would recommend would be for them to add other allergen info to the menu, such as dairy and gluten.

I have been to Sociable Kitchen and Tavern more times than I can count and I have never been disappointed with the food or the service. As for the food, I have tried the Cajun Chicken Sandwich, Chicken Pad Thai, Fish and Chips, Fish Tacos, Southern Fried Chicken, Social Dip, etc. and the food never disappoints. It is all made in house and is always full of flavour. In regard to the service, Nick was an outstanding server. Every time I go to Sociable Kitchen and Tavern I request to be seated in Nick’s section if he is working because he is one of the best servers I have ever had. Nick is very friendly, extreme knowledge about the beverage and food menu, and is always attentive but not overly bothersome. He is constantly refilling beverages and ensuring that all dishes are to our expectations. I would recommend the Sociable Kitchen and Tavern to anyone because it truly is the best restaurant in Brantford and always has incredible food, servers and atmosphere.

When we first arrived you were hit by the tremendous noise of the restaurant. We were then seated as I had reservations but had asked for a standard table not the high seats but the only other option was the patio which we did not want to go to. We had to stay where we were as I find these chairs very uncomfortable after my injuries from a car accident. The service was good except for when we were eating we were asked six times if everything was okay which was a little bit much. Overall the price of the meal was expensive vs the quantity of food and I'm not sure if I will ever return to the restaurant. Also when I returned home I could hardly talk as it was very difficult to have a conversation when the noise level was very high. :(
