This is my 3 time dining at the Sociable but first time experiencing their Brunch! Hospitality, Service, Atmosphere, Beverages and Food were Superb!! A great selection of options, especially plant based options!

Astounding.I have a pancreas disorder and can’t properly digest fats and haven’t ate out in ages. Just letting them know changed that for me. They personalized a meal that was of great value, made safely, it was so tasty and made me feel welcomed and not centered out for once. I can’t even eat what my family makes so this was great. Without a doubt will be back. My date said it was the best burger he’s ever had as well! It was fast service and frequent check ins, must’ve had 8 drink refills! Come here!!!

Great food, great service and fun and funky atmosphere. Discovered this place less than a week ago and have already been back twice .
I apologize I don’t remember our servers name , but we sat in the bar at a booth both times and she was lovely and great service . Love watching all staff help each other run food and drinks . We are avid diners all over Ontario and this place is definitely a hidden gem in Brantford and worth the trip. Will be back soon !

I had the fish and chips. Not bad. Had the sweet potatoes fries, they were Good but didn’t enjoy the dip. Wish it was chipotle. Great choice of on tap beers. The taller tables are uncomfortable, especially when you are handicapped. All the booths were booked even though half the restaurant on the other side was empty. If staff sees someone come in with a cane or a walker, do the right thing and give them a normal table. The standing tables are in the center of the room which makes the area noisier. Server was fantastic. Super nice, and quick.

First time visiting and our Friday night date night, was lovely.
Great service, quick check in and seated.. great food, fast service, hot food.
Started with bottle of (Grant Burge) gb51 Cab Sav/Shiraz...

Shareables were chosen
First came the
Bacon Avocado Flatbread...and
then
The Smoked Brisket Platter..
Very nicely timed and ended with Seasonal fruit inspired Crumble... All extremely tasty n plentiful.
Our server, Ruth was great and the manager stopped by the table to chat and ensure All was to our liking. We will definitely be back.

The food (and beer for that matter) is priced like you are dining on an endangered species at a wildlife reserve. It would be fine if the taste matched the price-- it is just average though. Nothing special. The food definitely isn't bad, but expect everything to be 15-25% higher than similar restaurants offering comparable fare. The restaurant itself at 4pm on a weekday, was less than half full (COVID times) but our server (although very kind) was pulled in all different directions. At one point we were waiting 20-30min between drinks which isn't cool. If you go here with zero expectations you will likely be satisfied. Just don't expect a memorable dining experience.

The Sociable has quickly become a favourite of ours, after I asked for a Facebook recommendation for a great spot in Brantford. It is equidistant for family to meet up here, and very conveniently located close to the highway.

In addition to location however, the more important qualities that keep us coming back are the vast menu offering, the food is consistently excellent with great presentation and perfectly prepared. We have enjoyed the brunch menu as well as the all-day menu, and both offer everything from comfort food and pub fare to healthy bowls and salads.
The servers here warm, genuine, and attentive, including making sure that my son has lots of chocolate milk and my coffee is full before we can ask. It's a lovely restaurant experience, and we look forward to returning!
