Excellent wine selection, Davide was superb
Were trying to figure out where to go on a late night Friday night dinner... made reservation on the ride over, and quickly seated outdoors in a beautiful space. Food was delicious as always (glad to see nothing has changed since it re-opened!)... only minor thought: it seemed they were ushering us out (literally clearing off all the tables) at 10:15 pm and we were enjoying ourselves and would have sat longer, but felt bad so left only to see people in the other dining room still eating.
My favorite SF restaurant!
I enjoyed the excellent service and wonderful menu but found it a touch loud. All I all I liked the experience very much.
Charming neighborhood spot with delicious home cooking.
Simply outstanding! Why do I have to submit 50 characters?
Though more noisier in the original main dining room than the other times, the meal and serve was superb. It was a dinner that required discussion and we had to make a real effort to listen due to all the chatter in the room.
My husband and I had a great time at Sociale for his birthday dinner. The food was great, and the service was impeccable. They even brought him out a piece of cake with a candle on it (on the house), without me asking. I will definitely be coming back!
Well,... this was one of our more favorite restaurants, however this time... not so much! Perhaps it was simply a bad night, but... to start, the waiter had a difficult time with basic English when explaining the dishes. The starter of olives, which I generally love, was not particularly crispy and fresh. Then, I had the duck beast which was basically raw (not rare), with sides that didn't particularly match. My partner had the halibut with similar results. Then, while ordering a Tuscan $300 wine, the somalier mentioned that they had another year of the same wine in stock,.. '10 instead of an '08. So we decided to try the newer vintage. The '08, which we had before in Italy, was better. However, he failed to mention that the '10 cost $600, not $300... AFTER we drank the wine!!! ... A HUGE no no in our book! So,... definitely not a good experience. If this were the first time visiting there, we would never have returned!
The service was some of the worst I have had in recent memory.
We had a team dinner on MLK holiday evening in this little neighborhood gem. Great appetizer bruschetta, great special salad that night, entrees were classic Italian dishes that were wonderful. Wine list is almost entirely Italian so you should have an idea of what you are looking for or ask for help. Staff was wonderful and service was perfect. I look forward to going back.
The service is good. The ambiance is fine. The food is okay , nothing spectacular. Our coffee was served warm instead of hot like what we requested.
I absolutely love coming to Sociale and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a special place to dine. Fantastic service and vibe!
Everything was great except for service which was just ok. Our waiter was unfailingly polite but they forgot or didn’t hear 3 separate items over 2 courses (he was genuine in his apologies). But 1 is a non- event, 2 an accident, but 3?
In all still a very pleasant dinner at a neighborhood gem of a restaurant.
We have eaten at Sociale several times and always reliable. However, this time the kale salad was too salty (cheese was the culprit), and the clams linguine had sand. Service for the main courses took a long time and the restaurant was half empty, on a Saturday night, surprisingly.
It is beautifully decorated and very charming. But something has happened. very disappointed.
The Italian wine list was exceptional, the sommelier very knowledgeable and the food great. The cheese plate was less than I expected but the chicken under a brick and the pork chop was over the top.
Awesome. Josh was great with the wines!
Very nice place for having a dinner. Good variety of wines, great service and delicious food.
Everything was so delicious, service so personable and the sommelier so much fun to talk wine with - a great experience!
Small portions. Went home hungry after zucchini lasagne which was all pasta, very little zucchini. Menu options are lol too rich and don’t include many vegetables.
