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.

By far one of the best restaurants in Somerville. Met a few friends for apps and cocktails and this place was excellent. Wait staff was attentive and experienced. Will definitely be making this a weekly ritual.

Social is always our go-to spot in Somerville. Best sushi around, creative cocktails, and something on the menu for everyone. Service is top notch.

Social was a wonderful surprise. Food was excellent, menu had great options for both food and drink. We were made to feel very welcome and the ambiance was warm and romantic. Had a great date night with my husband and definitely plan on returning.

We like going to social because of the wonderful food and atmosphere. This last visit met our expectations. I will say that I was a little disappointed at the service. Initially it was fantastic; attentive without being overbearing, informative, etc. However, after we finished our meal and they cleared the plates, our waiter disappeared; we had to ask for dessert menus and then we had 3 people serving us. Not sure what happened, but it will not deter us from going back.

Service was outstanding. Portions were large and our entrees were prepared very well. My sirloin was delicious caramelized onions. Delicious but the cut of meat had too much fat and was difficult to cut and even harder to chew. The manager offered me something else but I was filled up from the shared plates we ordered. They did not charge me for the steak.

It took over 45 minutes just to get our salads and this was only after we asked what was taking so long. The food was good but unfortunately it was so loud we could not even hold a conversation across the table. Couldn’t get out of there soon enough and not planning to return any time soon. Disappointed.
