Social Kitchen and Bar
I find that the service is exceptional, you’re made to feel at home, the wait staff are helpful with questions about menu items and drink selection. In a nutshell, your satisfaction is important.
Daughter home from school
Chicken and waffle was described as a popular menu item. Unfortunately, the amount of bacon was overwhelming and the chicken bites were cooked to crispy. Made the meal unenjoyable.
Great meal. Cool food and our server was professional, knowledgeable and friendly
Everything is normally very, very good at Social Kitchen. The only reason for the 3 stars this time for service is because it took 20 minutes for our food to arrive this time. They were busy and everything else was great as usual. We sat in the Bar Area and it was crowded, so that may have resulted in the delay. We will still go back and we always make sure to get the warm chocolate chip cookies for desert.
Great food and service...a popular place and as such, a bit noisy....looking forward to trying the rooftop soon.
Great staff and great food!
Love this place. The salads are amazing and all of the staff is pleasant, especially Ashley, the bartender. I come here at least a few times a month and have never been disappointed.
Enjoyed the food
Fantastic staff and food. Will definitely be back!
Our food was delicious for typical contemporary breakfast fair. Our waiter was nice but seemed a bit unsure, likely just new to the job. The ambiance was fun and the meal was quick!
What a wonderful atmosphere. What a wonderful experience. Great food.
Always a favorite place to dine in Birmingham. No matter the occaision, it's always a good time, great food, and a cool vibe at Social. Looking forwad to the next time.
Great experience and they accommodated us well throughout the experience.
My salmon on my kale salad was basically raw when I received it, I have gotten salmon on top of my salad multiple times at this restaurant and never have I had this experience. My husband flagged the waitress down to bring it to her attention she then passed over a plate for me to place the salmon and they would cook it more for me. I received the salmon within a few minutes and once again it was in fact undercooked. She then took it off the bill which was very nice of her but in my opinion for a Birmingham well renowned restaurant I was dissatisfied for our evening out.
trendy place, nice atmosphere, frieldly, attentive service.
Our server Kat was fantastic. I had made a reservation in advance however we were greeted by a unpleasant hostess at the door who proceeded to stuff 3 of us at a 2 seater table. Our server saw my dissatisfaction and rectified the situation immediately. Kat did ensure we had a good experience in the end.
The food was disgusting . I had to return the plate. No one came and apologized
The service for lunch was very quick. The server was very attentive and did a good job. I really liked the customizable salad. I had not done for lunch before. Will go again in the future.
Drinks are amazing! Food was good.
Food was great, and so are the fresh-cut fries. Beware you'll get enough to last a week!
Cool atmosphere and great food makes for a nice night out
some tables too close together making it hard to focus on conversations
Had a wonderful Valentines dinner
We had a great time! Great spot for a cute date spot! I would come back another time!
Didn’t love the thick cut bacon on the eggs Benedict. Asked for it to be extra crispy but it came out and was so fatty. Other than that I usually love the food.
Food is always delicious and presented beautifully. Cocktails are unique and always compliment our meal. We love the laid back atmosphere and the upscale vibe to the food - even though it is casual and never pretentious. One of our favorites!
awesome service, food and amazing location !!
Social is always a fun place to go. The Brussel sprout appetizer, as recommended by our waitperson Catherine was outstanding -- rather than just plain old roasted sprouts, they are roasted, and then chopped with a little vinegar. The daily restaurant week special with soup or salad, and choice of two sandwiches was pretty tasty as well. I had the tomato soup - a hearty bowl for a cold day, with small bits of tomato floating in a thick tomato-y stock. Sandwich choices were a cuban or whitefish, which was served on a brioche with a healthy dollop of tartar sauce. My friend had the avocado toast, which looked classic -- mashed avocado, hard boiled egg on whole wheat toast. I'm thinking the toast could be a bit thicker, though. Dessert included: chocolate peanut butter chip cookies bracketing a scoop of peppermint stick ice cream, with chocolate fudge sauce on the side. Post on social media, and the restaurant brings out freshly made mini-doughnuts dusted with powered sugar.
Only drawback is that the two-tops are a bit crowded, up against the outdoor side window. I managed to spill a pitcher of creamer... could have used a bit more elbow room. But Catherine got to the spill quickly, and saved me the trouble of mopping it up with my napkin. Service was friendly, attentive, and not to noodgy. A very relaxed lunch.
Wonderful experience! Bartenders were great
I always have a good time here!
My husband and I went to social for brunch! They don’t have too many vegetarian options but I was still able to find a few options for myself. The salted pecan waffles were phenomenal! My husband had the chicken and waffles which he loved as well. I would recommend this place for brunch!
First time here and loved it! We will return. Food was great, server outstanding and all staff attentive and friendly...loved the fact that owner/manager personally checked on us. Thank you!
The wait staff was incredibly rude with where they placed us. It was as if we were purposely grouped to the enclosed tent area. Multiple other people came in the restaurant and were seated in the main dining area. However, the restaurant was sending groups with children and individuals that were clearly in high school to the outside tent area with us. We did not feel welcomed in this restaurant. The food was actually really good but we just wanted to leave from the poor treatment.
The turkey burger here is amazing! The fries are big enough for a table of 4 to share. Great service!
Favorite spot for Brunch. Bloody Mary bar is the best!
Our server was great. My issue is with the hostess staff. We made a reservation which was confirmed however the hostesses told us that they had no record of our reservation. As a result, we didn’t get the best table. The restaurant wasn’t crowded but we were seated close to the bar where servers prepare drinks, etc.
Food was amazing, atmosphere was fantastic, and service was phenomenal!! Had 7 girls (teens) for a birthday lunch and it did not disappoint!
We went for my daughter’s 18th birthday. The Christmas lights were all still up and it looked great. The service was great, the food was delicious and we had a great time. I’d highly recommend.
