Great food, cute place, kinda slow service but overall not a bad choice
The food was good but their heating system was broken and the restaurant was freezing which made our expensive unpleasant. Make sure to ask if they have heat before you make a reservation!
We’d dined outside in the Summer at Society Cafe and had a great experience so we, and two more friends, returned in February once the COVID restrictions allowed 25% capacity indoor dining. Once again, great food-we had the brick chicken and the short ribs-both outstanding. The staff were especially attentive and in fact after hearing about the recent passing of my father-in-law (who loved Manhattans) brought a complimentary drink in his honor. You have won us over as one of our new neighborhood go-to restaurants!
Good-sized fun, young local crowd. Decent food. Not your average hotel restaurant. Drinks could be a bit stronger, though it has welcoming indoor dining with a fireplace.
We were seated outside by the street for brunch on a Saturday (due to pandemic indoor dining ban). The street itself isn’t very pleasant and a bit noisy. I had the omelet which was amazing. My friend had salmon with salad. The servers were sure polite and attentive. We were able to hang out for a while without being bothered. Can’t comment on indoor ambience.
As evidenced by my review, our experience at Society Cafe was outstanding. It was our anniversary and we really needed a break. I found SC on an internet search and couldn't have been more satisfied. We felt so safe and comfortable. The dining room was beautiful, perfectly lit and appointed (loved the fireplace, the beautiful ceiling and the artwork). A guitarist played for us. The food, from appetizers to desert, was DELICIOUS, interesting and beautifully presented. Our drinks, chosen with the help of our server, complimented each course perfectly. Our server Marie (we later found that she was the restaurant manager) couldn't have been more attentive, caring, thoughtful and knowledgable. She made an already wonderful experience even more special as she seemed to know just what to suggest to enhance our experience. We left society cafe with smiles on our faces and "recharged batteries". Thank you Marie and all of your staff for providing us with a wonderful and memorable experience. Can't wait to see you again! All the best, Gale and Rich
The server and the service was great. I and a friend stayed there talking and no server bothered us for hours by constantly reminding us of the check, which is a rare thing in other places. These small gestures go a long way in building loyalty. I would recommend it to people and I plan to bring more people to the restaurant. Keep up the good work guys.
Great spot! The ambiance is incredible - one of the best that I’ve experienced in the city. The dining room is also small, so it’s a very intimate setting, which I liked!
The food was outstanding. Safety measures followed. Live music, great ambiance, service and the decor is gorgeous
Will definitely be back
lovely restaurant. Ate outside- but inside is great too!
Amazing night, food was wonderful, Marie was wonderful.
Amazing ambiance and cozy cold weather vibes. Food was outstanding as was the service. Felt like we were on a little fall getaway not in Manhattan! 10/10 excellent will be returning!
Amazing! Would suggest.
Excellent food service. Like the menu varirty
very pleasant for brunch - outdoor seating situation is pretty.
Food was great. Service was so very slow. The waiting staff seemed stretched and very
Fantastic food and ambience.
I would highly recommend it.
Amazing staff and amazing food. Brunch was great and stayed through dinner because of live music. Thanks for a wonderful dinner night out.
So nice to come back to society cafe. The food was amazing as always, salmon was so fresh, and my husband had the mushroom pizza which has never failed us. The server/ manager was so amazing and friendly. Such a wonderful experience dining out after the quarantine
Really nice atmosphere. Waiter was very attentive to our needs. I don't like salmon, but my wife insisted I try the dish she ordered. I loved their salmon! Their steak was really good. I ordered medium by mistake, and kept contemplating what their rare steak would, but that's on me. My wife is not a fan of tomatoes, but she liked how the tomatoes was served. Also loved the fresh bread.
Finally a nice dinner out. Thanks so much
This was a pleasant surprise! The food was delicious and it was a pleasure to dine outside. I would absolutely go back.
WOW! What a great meal and our server was incredibly attentive / a pleasure to deal with. 10/10 would recommend.
I like there so much! Food was delicious! Service is amazing! Restaurant is so fancy. Definitely will come back here again!
We were there for a birthday celebration and everyone enjoyed themselves. The waitstaff was friendly and attentive. We enjoyed all the food which was different without being over the top. We'll be back.
I love this place so much. Marie is amazing, the chef has the best food in the village. Thank you for a great dining experience
We really enjoyed it. The Oysters were excellent but a bit of sticker shock. Close to 6$ each. Yikes.
Ambiance was great. Wine list could use some upgrading.
Food was excellent.
We have eaten here a few times and have always had a great meal - tbd food is great Chef quality and the service is very good, a very nice place for a nice relaxed meal
My husband and I celebrated our Valentine’s Day at society cafe. Despite the small wait we had a great evening. The manager gifted us a glass of Prosecco while we waited for the table. Our server Emma was so helpful with explaining the specials. The squid ink pasta and prons was absolutely amazing. Our desert was our favorite part a heart shaped red velvet cake. Will be back many times more.
I went there for a weekday breakfast. The food was great but the service was indifferent and it took us more than 40 minutes to get a few items when the restaurant wasn’t anywhere near full (maybe 3 other tables).
Cozy inviting atmosphere, good food, very pleasant and good waitress.
Food is always amazing here. Staff is very nice and polite. Our server Sindi brought a cake for my birthday. Would recommend to everyone.
If you're looking for a small bite in the city in a fairly quiet atmosphere this is a good spot. Overall the service was pleasant and unintrusive enough. The food was somewhat lacking in overall flavor - underseasoned perhaps. Our order included some fried items - these seemed either overcooked or soaked in oil. Overall great decor, nice quiet atmosphere, average/okay eats.
I came here with friends for my birthday and it was the perfect place to enjoy a classy night with friends. We all ordered cocktails from the house specialty cocktails (our favorites were the Dixie hummingbird and the emerald city!) and shared pizza and small bites as appetizers. Our favorites were the wild mushroom pizza and chickpea fries. The entrees were delicious too — I got the butternut squash ravioli. Overall, wonderful service and an absolutely delicious meal. Many thanks to our waitress Rachel ! Will definitely be back!
Great food, great service. Sindi our server was wonderful and we can’t wait to come back. Definitely Loved the bread pudding
It was a dinner birthday party for a good friend of mine, party of 6! My party consist of vegetarians and Thise on Keto diet and Food choice was excellent for all! Except one of our order Halibet fish was completely raw...we could not believe it and they too were astonished! Not sure what chef was doing for that dish 🤦🏽♀️🤷🏽♀️ !! But they apologized profusely and of course we did not pay for it and got replacement dish with no cost! I believe its unfortunate incident ...everything else was absloute perfection , service, place....PERFECT!! we enjoyed it and can’t wait to come back!!! Thank You
From the moment we walked in the door everything was amazing. It was so relaxed and cozy... I wanted a very chilled, quiet brunch with my girlfriends and this was just perfect. The food was amazing. Highly recommend it and can’t wait to come back.
Once again.... amazing! We had a wonderful dinner. The chef is great. The service is great.... Alex was beyond excellent. Their happy hour is great and the longe is cozy. The short rib is best in the city. Please go try it..... but don’t take my seat!
Ordered salmon well done and it came quite rare.
