Good place but we were pushed to order since we were the last table
Amazing dinner and friendly, knowledgeable and attentive staff. We have already recommended this restaurant and look forward to a return visit when we return to San Francisco.
Great food, great wine. Just loved the place
Wonderful evening out. The food and ambience was first rate. Will go there more often.
Fantastic. Service was the best. Food was exceptional. Highly recommend.
Great local neighborhood place with upscale wines if desired and food and service to die for...very well priced. If you are in SF and can grab a place outside of the Wharf or Union Square - go here!!!
Great, as always. The restaurant's take on Italian food is special. Plus a great staff.
Everyone was pleasant when we arrived, we asked for bread, and had to ask twice before we received it. One person from our party ordered the linguini with clam sauce, and after each of us tasting it, agreed with her, that the dish had no flavor- zero flavor! You couldn't taste the flavor of the clams, the garlic, or anything, it was totally bland! We had a difficult time finding a waiter to ask for some parmesan cheese, no one seemed to be paying attention to our table. When the bill came, they comped us on the one dessert we ordered, but not on the badly prepared main dish. After talking with the hostess, she agreed without any problem to remove the linguini dish from our bill. The food that was ordered by the others in our party, including mine, was all delicious. So, 'Inconsistant', is how I would rate this restaurant.
Sociale is always a treat! Great staff and food is always delicious very fresh .... healthy and yummy ... they have something for everyone!! thanks social!!
Had a very good dinner. The pastas, particularly the pappardelle with duck, were quite good and so were the scallops, lamb and halibut. The wine list is mainly Italian and we had a delicious Barbaresco.
Unbelievable food. Som was fantastic and could move been nicer. Can not wait to go back.
Good food and good service. We’ll go back.
It is so nice to have a restaurant environment where you can carry on a normal conversation. Service and food were excellent. Love the fried olives.
The food, atmosphere & service from the Sommelier were outstanding.
However, there were a few hiccups: when we were first seated, it took a very long time to be greeted by our server, then an even longer time to order wine; and at the end of the meal, we were a bit abandoned so took a while to get someone’s attention to both be given & run the bill. All of that said, we would definitely come back!
A great dinner!!! Thank you.
The food was good but with little vegetarian options as well as dairy free options. There was no flexibility from the server on the menu adjustments for dairy, gluten free and or various intolerances. As a matter of fact I sensed their annoyance that I even asked. There are too many really good restaurants in San Francisco where this is not an issue, so I was surprised Sociale does not support their patrons with more flexibility. We nonetheless had an enjoyable night due to the occasion and our time together!
Disappointed with entrees - hen and quail both dry and late to the table. Olives and burrata were great as well as ambiance and service.
Great restaurant, amazing and friendly service! Food is delicious, as it has always been. Will be your go-to spot that is special and consistent! Fantastic all around!
Very disappointed with Sociale. Wait staff very attentive and professional; however, the food did not represent the prices being charged. For example, a pork meatloaf special smothered with barbecue sauce for $36--no way it was worth that amount. Everything ordered was just okay with the exception of the fried olives which were outstanding. If you're satisfied with a $35 corkage fee and mediocre food but great olives, this may be your next dinner reservation. Too many consistently very good S. F. restaurants to return to Sociale.
Birthday celebration, fine wine suggestions, great food.
Had not been to Sociale for a couple of years and left wondering why I had not returned to Sociale on a regular basis. The service was great, the waiter was knowledgeable on the menu and attentive but not invasive. The wine expert spent a great deal of time with me and helped me select a red wine that I could appreciate even with a severe head cold. The choice was right on. The food was better than I had remembered. Each of the 4 at our table had a different entree and they were all outstanding and very fresh. Sociale is now in my regular rotation.
Sociale is one of the great neighborhood restaurants on Sacramento Street. Just the best. Been going there for years. Never disappointed, and always enjoyable. The staff is outstanding; very attentive.
I can't even count how many times I've been to Social in the 18 years I've lived here - for date night, ladies nights, baby shower, valentine's day - you name it! A true neighborhood gem with fabulous Italian food - when you really want to have a lovely, quiet evening with loved ones - this is the place to go!
Wonderful experience. The food was amazing, you could taste every ingredient, pasta was cooked perfectly. The portions were on the small size for the price. The waiter seemed to not give our table quite as much attention as his other tables, perhaps that was because we were in the corner? But overall very pleasant evening and I would go back.
new side room is quiet and had a terrific wait staff. Wonderful appetizers and Italian wine selection. I will return!
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.
