Social is a contemporary restaurant and lounge in Somerville that specializes in offerings that are perfect for sharing. With a regular menu, sushi menu and party menu, it is not difficult to solve those hunger pangs. With a full bar and manager’s hour specials during the week on drinks and appetizers, Social is the ideal place for being “social.”



The social sharing plates include classic favorites like calamari, nachos and ahi tuna, as well as tasty beef empanadas, Thai vegetable spring rolls and spicy shrimp. Hearty appetites will love the entrees including braised lamb shank, filet mignon and various handheld options such as a grilled vegetable sandwich. Eight classic dishes with options for chicken, veal or shrimp are also favorites. The sushi and sashimi menu is very comprehensive as well. Lunch, dinner and evening entertainment are all great reasons to check out Social.

Was not impressed. Was offered a cheese platter and when the bill came they charged us for it. Never did the waiter tell us there was a charge for it.

Great experience, first time dining at Social. Started with Mushroom Flatbread which was a great starter, super generous with mushrooms and great flavor. Perfect to share too! Pasta special with beef tips and sun-dried tomatoes was delicious! Shrimp parmigiana was plentiful with large shrimp and fresh tomato. Homemade tiramisu was outstanding and berry tart was fab. We will be back!

My husband loved his sushi and wants to go back soon. The portions for dinner weren't exceptionally large, but just the right amount. Dessert (cheesecake) was lovely, but was a bit dry. Could have used some fruit on top. Attention to us and to detail was superb.

Just okay. My wife ordered sushi and a martini which were both great. However, I ordered a gin cocktail and a pasta which both were not good at all. Food arrived quickly but took over 20 minutes to find our waiter to get our check which was extremely frustrating for such a small dining room. Doubt we will go back.

We were in town for a dog show and were looking for something casual but not chain. The open table reviews were good and it was close to our hotel. We were not disappointed. Service was attentive and we had the specials which were yummy. There was a group of women on a girls night out who were kind of raucous in the back room so the noise level was “lively”. I recommend Social if your in this part of NJ!

If I could I would give this place zero stars. The manager held our food for over an hour because our “appetizers” (which was sushi) weren’t ready. It was our first time having a meal there and no one told us that sushi was considered an appetizer so we figured it was going to come out with our food or even after. Our server didn’t check on us once after ordering and he was barely present so we couldn’t even ask what was going on. Did they not see the two children at the table?! I have a five year old who was about to start crying because he was hungry. When I got up to talk to the manager he showed very little concern - he just kept telling me “Well that’s how we do things. Sushi is an appetizer and the food comes out after.” NO ONE EVEN TOLD US SO HOW WOULD WE HAVE KNOWN. The manager didn’t even offer any way to make amends. This place was definitely the worst place I could have chosen to celebrate my birthday. Never going back.

Social is a nice place with a lively bar scene and personable staff. Portions are generous and they offer a full bar so a byob it’s not.
The food? Just OK. Fine dining it is not. If you do not have a discernible palette, this just might be your cup of tea, just not mine.

Went to Social to get together with former co-workers. When I mentioned this to the host, he sat us in the back room away from the bar - much quieter space. Initially they had us in the bar, which is pretty lively. He recommended the mushroom flatbread appetizer, which was DELICIOUS. Our waiter was able to make recommendations off both the regular menu and the specials list. Solid experience, will be back.

I was greeted immediately upon arriving & asked if I had a seating preference ( it was not busy at the time). The Maitre D wasn't pushy to order, but attentive when we were ready. Our order came hot & delicious. We all (3) agreed it was well worth coming for the food. Our waiter was attentive, but not pestering & if we needed something, we got it right away. Feim, our Maitre D made sure we were well taken care of. We were there for lunch & ,the portions were generous. Everything was presented artistically with care. My friends were from Freehold Township & said the food was worth the trip & they would come back, as will I.

First time there. I had sushi and my wife had short ribs. Food was excellent, especially the sushi!! Definitely 5 Stars! And the service was spectacular. The owner greeted and seated us, was very attentive and friendly, wait staff were on top of their game, as was the bartender (awesome Citron martini!), as well as the sushi chef. Overall a great experience. We will go back.

My husband and I, and another couple, went for an early dinner on Saturday night. It was quite early so we were the only ones there for portion of the meal. We sat outside, which faces the street, but was filled with flowers and really quite pleasant. The service could not have been better and the food was delicious. Highly recommend the restaurant!

My fiancé and I got dinner here for the first time the other night. Service was excellent, very attentive. The menu is different, has a little bit of everything like :Italian dishes, Mexican dishes, burgers/sandwiches, and then a large sushi menu. We started with the spring rolls which were excellent and not greasy. For dinner I got the chicken giambotta which was delicious and my fiancé got sushi. We were both very happy with our meals. It was kind of expensive, only one glass of wine was ordered, the check was $71. Good place overall!

When I arrived I was promptly seated. The table I was given was dirty so I asked for it to be cleaned which the waiter and the host quickly apologized and cleaned the table. Drinks are ok I personally believe they are overpriced for the type of alcohol they use “House”, which is the cheapest. I didn’t like the drink I ordered at the beginning and the waiter immediately exchanged it for one that he recommended. The food is excellent!! The place is very nice. Overall my experience was good and I do recommend it.

Was visiting ASGA Hall of Fame in Far Hills and wanted to find a nice restaurant for lunch in the area. Open Table lured us to Social and it did not disappoint. Absolutely delicious lunch with generous portions. Attentive wait staff, even with a large event going on near us. Beautiful setting. A very good find!

Server seemed quite busy in a slow restaurant. Food quality and taste was great.Chicken Francaise and mozzarella salad were perfect, but the prices were a bit high. Mozzarella salad was $10, and the main dish was $25. Overall, I would visit again, but the prices on the main dishes are $3-$5 per plate too high.
