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.
Very interesting menu and specials. Everything was delicious - we ordered specials. Service was excellent. Owner oversees everything and is very friendly.
Overpriced and average food. Service for mediocre
Service was really slow. They did not apologize. Food was poor
Ahi tuna app was excellent. enjoyed entire meal will go again soon
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.
Pablo took care of our dining requirements I am a vegetarian and found the attention and quality of food served exceptionally good
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.
Food and service was very good. Owner was very present and mingled with everyone.
Service is the best. Wait staff are helpful and very personable. The menu is varied and the food is prepared to your liking. Saturday nigh wait staff, Enrico and Fame are the best.
Social never disappoints! Excellent food, modern and trendy atmosphere, and staff is always friendly and on the ball. Excellent choice for any occasion. Five star experience once again!
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 was our first time at Social. What a wonderful surprise. Great food, great service & very friendly owners. We will definitely be back!
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.
