    Second time for lunch. This time was not as good as the first. I had the chicken pot pie. Not sure, but the taste and texture of the chicken seemed right out of the can, funny taste. My wife had the Korean chicken sandwich that was ok. Not sure we will be going back

    Our first time. The food was excellent. I can't wait to go back. I had the chicken and waffles. My wife had the chicken pot pie. Our friends had the Peruvian chicken and Bolenese. Sarah was our server and had another table at the other end of the restaurant. She did the best that she could to check on on us.

    Came in for the meatloaf which was not ready. Ordered the chicken pot pie but it appears the upper crust of the dish is prepared separately and not with the pie. Pot pie was very liquified and at $26 expected something bigger and better. Might try it again if they have the meatloaf.

    I tried to get Friday/Saturday evening reservations, with no luck. Thursday evening was the next best reservation, however. We were greeted immediately, and when my husband asked to be seated at a table other than the one suggested, we were promptly moved. I had a martini (lovely), and we began with the samosas--which 3 days later we're still talking about! They were just fabulous, and we could have ordered another plate and eaten them for the main meal--but we're glad we didn't. I had the poke and a glass of pretty good Sauvignon blanc. The poke was just what I wanted, the portion was very generous and it was overall delish. My husband had the short ribs, and they were so good he shared only about a fork tine's worth with me. I'd had visions of finishing the evening with an espresso martini, but alas, I had no more room for one. That will have to be next time! Paige was our waitstaff and she was absolutely terrific. Brava!

    Went for lunch. First time at this restaurant. Waitress was very good and knowledgeable. Drinks were excellent, Jet Setter and Goddess. I had the shrimp and grits, outstanding. My wife had the Mediterranean salad with fried chicken. Salad was very fresh and the fried chicken was crunchy good. We will be trying dinner there next.

    Thank you to Jason and the team for a great early lunch. The pulled chicken sandwich was zesty, fries were hot, and the Diet Coke was perfectly cold. Social Roost always, and thankfully, serves both regular and adult drinks on the frigid side - the best insurance to counterbalance hot DTSP days. Can’t wait to stop by again.

    Our waitress was not as attentive as I would have liked considering I was sitting for 10 minutes before anyone even acknowledged I was seated but the manager was sweet and made sure I was checked on thereafter! I mean the waitress just was all over the place and not really checking in on refills or drinks but she did provide a great break down of the menu. The food was delicious. I had the crispy skin salmon with the rice noodle salad. BEST dish I’ve had in a VERY long time. My goodness it was so good and I ate it so fast. Despite the service issues I still had a great time, the place is cute and the food is DELICIOUS. I will definitely be back!!

    Food and service were excellent! The food, especially exceeded our expectations! We loved the chicken samosas, the mushroom salad, the lasagna, pesto pasta, and the meatloaf. Would’ve given five stars, if the menu items we chose to order first were available — they were out of the short rib, the chicken pot pie, the red snapper, the brownie dessert and the Earthquake cab… it’s not like they have a huge menu, and it was a big disappointment that so many things on the menu weren’t available.
