Social Kitchen and Bar Ratings and Reviews
The service and cocktails were incredible. This would be an awesome place for after work drinks. The noise level was moderate and they were only at 20% capacity. But the service was perfect, Presley had great recommendations. My husband had the scallops and really enjoyed them. I had the steak frites - which should really be labeled frites with steak. There were like two pounds of fries with a steak on top. All were delicious but the amount of fries were laughable. Highly recommend the cocktails and Brussel sprouts.
Our party (all pregnant women) was seated in the bar area next to the bloody mary self-service station and our server was also the bar tender. He was a friendly guy but was too busy at the bar to attend to our table. Service was very slow despite the restaurant being half empty. When we finally did get our food, 3 out of the 4 meals were inedible. The kale salad was good, the warm chicken salad sandwich had all raw chicken pieces, the chicken on the chicken and waffles was so over cooked that it could not be cut with a knife and was so tough it could not be chewed, and the salami and eggs had a hair in the middle of the eggs. The server said Sundays were difficult for the kitchen staff and we were not charged for the 3 meals with issues. We weren't in a hurry but we were not trying to linger and it took over 2 hours to order, receive our food which was half eaten, and pay.
I made a reservation for my friends birthday. It gave me an option to pick a high top or a normal table and I selected normal table. When we got there, they didn’t have a table ready for us and when they did we were sat at a high top in the bar section which is specifically not what I asked for. Since we were in the bar section we had 3 different servers which was a bit annoying, but they really made up for it with the food. The Gemelli was to DIE for. The steak and frites were served with a plate of fries bigger than my face! The Mac and cheese was also amazing. Cannot believe how great the food was!
We’re new to the area so it’s been fun trying new places! This is one of the cutest places so far! Now granted, we were here over the holidays so it had holiday lights adorably spewed alllll throughput but it was amazing! Best spinach artichoke dip I’ve had. Ambience was perfect and great drinks too!!
My four year old daughter and I went for brunch and were seated upon arrival. The staff was friendly and our server was excellent. However, I was very disappointed with our food. My daughter ordered the butter noodles, but they had to be sent back because they were visibly hard and stuck together in clumps (she LOVES noodles like that and was grossed out the moment our server placed them in front of her). When I asked if she could get pancakes or a basic side of fruit (like what was on my Açaí bowl), we were told they were all out. I ordered the Açaí bowl (which came on a plate). The quinoa that came on it was extremely salty. It was definitely overpriced for what it was and would not order it again. I hadn’t been to Social in a long time and thought it would be a nice experience for my daughter and I on New Years Day. Can’t say I’ll make it a point to return any time soon.
Very good food, tastefully presented. I only visit occasionally because the menu is rather limited, never changes and there are no specials. If you go during the winter, avoid being seated on the patio. Even with the space heaters in the ceiling it was very cold.
Literally came back and requested same server (Tiera) because she was SO amazing so kind and made sure we were okay our drinks were always filled !! the food was Amazing we ordered the turkey burger and grilled cheese my mouth is watering typing this it was THAT good
Very nice environment for our Secret santa exchange we made a reservation and happen to all be running a few minutes late they called to check in and once we arrived we were seated right away! It was excellent service and amazing food! Definitely will come back
Gave Social a second chance and there won't be a third. The friends I came with were finished with their meals by the time mine came out. ZERO communication from the manager and our waitress spent most of her time apologizing for how long everything took and the poor communication - 20 minutes on a spinach dip app, after we had finished brussel sprouts, yet both ordered at the same time. Not nearly as busy as they should have been on a Saturday night at 8pm, kitchen was way out of sync, and the staff didn't seem to know what was going on. It's evident now why it was so easy to get a reservation online at Social when everything else around town was booked up.
Server forgot to bring our appetizer, then one person’s meal did not come until 10 minutes after the other 3 meals. Food was delicious but service was poor. After leaving the restaurant after we paid for dinner I got a notice that we were “no shows” for our reservation. Thank goodness the food was good. They need some work on service/management.
Great choice of entrees...something for everyone. Two of us had the gemelli pasta, outstanding! The trout was fabulous as well. The Brussels sprouts app was delicious, not as thrilled with the cauliflower. Decorated for the holidays and very festive. The service was outstanding, just a little slow on the the arrival of our cocktails. Really enjoyed our evening here overall.
Really good food, the fries are a must. They had lights all around the restaurant and at one point they had the lights play to a song. The service staff wore holiday themed sweaters and everyone there was really nice and helpful. Would definitely recommend to go.
