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.

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.

This was our first time at Social. The owners were gracious and kept coming to check on us. The service provided by the waiter was impeccable. The food was delicious and the seasoning was just right. There was not too much salt on the food. The drinks were made to perfection.

My entire group cannot wait to go 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.

I love this restaurant for spending time with my family. The attentive staff never rushes, but brings food in a relaxed and timely manner, giving us plenty of time to enjoy the food, spirits, and company. They always have a special that I try and the specials always please!

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.

We wanted to try something new so we looked at Open Table for suggestions in our area. We also wanted somewhere that wouldn't break the bank. Social was the perfect fit. The food was delicious and nicely priced. I would definitely go back.

We ate in the bar area. The service was terrific. Staff was friendly and energetic. My vodka Gibson was great. The food was so so. It was extremely difficult to have a conversation. The acoustics are such that all conversations merge in a cone of noise.

We had a great time here! We had a drink at the bar and "The Social" could be my new favorite drink. When we went into dining room to eat, the variety from sushi to empanadas really made it fun! Dinner was also excellent. What put this place over the top for me was the owner came over to our table and treated us special. Our waiter was equally entertaining and professional. We will be back!

My wife and I really enjoy trying new places, and we often rely on the reviews on OT to guide us. In this instance, we felt a little letdown, and felts Social was an okay restaurant but lacked the sophistication and execution the reviews led us to believe we would find.

Not the best way to start an evening: we were taken to our table near the kitchen and there was an incredibly potent smell of old garbage. First impressions matter.

The owner was incredibly friendly, and the staff was professional. But, the menu was all over the place, our starter and my entree were very overly salted, and although not bad we found the food somewhat typical and unimaginative.

We came for an early dinner and were one of only a few people there. It was in the middle of the week, so I'm guessing things get a lot more energetic later in the evening and over the weekends. Nice decor and bar, but nothing I'd suggest you go out of your way for.

This is was my first time at Social and it won’t be my last! The atmosphere was lovely, the service was outstanding and the food was fantastic! We also got to meet the owner who was visible and personally came around to say hello and ensure we were having a outstanding dining experience!

There are also separate dining areas for small parties.

I would recommend going to Social. You won’t be disappointed!
