Social Kitchen and Bar Ratings and Reviews
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.
Made a reservation for a high top and was seated in the back of the restaurant at a high top next to the kitchen, where all of the servers gather. In my mind it should have been the high tops at the window - no mention of high tops in two areas of the restaurant. We opted for a different table altogether. We were here two weekends in a row and I basically ordered the same thing. The second time it was half the size as the first and minimal amounts of “stuff” for the skillet breakfast. So disappointing. Wanted to really impress some out-of-town friends and this place let us down.
