The perfect place to meet up with friends. Great food and wine, excellent service. Quiet enough for good conversation, but still full of animated people enjoying their evening out

The atmosphere from the time you enter until you leave is excellent. Pulling up to complimentary valet, being seated right away, & greeted at the table in under 2 minutes. Service and food excellent. Only down side, red velvet cake is not served southern style so ........

We have been here a few times. We typically make reservations for special occasions. It's a lovely place with much more room than you can tell from the street view. The staff is warm, welcoming, professional, and kind.
It's rare to find a restaurant where everything from drinks to dessert is exceptional. This is one of those places. The signature cocktails are delicious and wine flights are a nice option to accompany a meal. Appetizers are delicious. And, if you don't want leftovers, they could serve as a full meal. The entree portions are ample. Save some to-go because not only will you enjoy this food reheated (still so tasty), you're going to want to try the dessert.

This is my third time at Southern Social and I keep hoping I would enjoy it more each time. The ambiance is very nice. It’s beautiful inside. But the food is mediocre. Their dessert is very good and probably the best thing. Their sister restaurant Flight is much much better. The service is good and the people are very nice. Just the food is disappointing.

All prior visits to this restaurant would have earned a 5 star for everything. However, we picked a night when they were in-between chefs (shared by another waitress that we asked why the bread was so different than what we had in the past) and the food was not so great. We had the barbeque shrimp appetizer and it was only average. For dinner, we both had the scallops with chard and risotto. The scallops were cooked nicely, however, the chard and risotto were covered with very rich, thick sauce - not like in the past when it was just the right amount of sauce. My husband ate all of his and I left most of my chart and risotto - a definite first. I'm sure we will eventually go back, but this experience definitely put a bad taste in our mouth for the moment.

This place is usually my favorite place to eat in Memphis, however, I have to say that our NYE experience was less than desired. I don't enjoy the set menu because my favorite scallop dish wasn't an option and it felt very rushed as I wasn't even done with a course and they were serving us the next one. It became obvious that the idea was to move people in and out quickly. The cost was more than normal with the set menu as well and I go there for an enjoyable meal and experience, not fast food. I will go back again, but not ever for a special occasion/set menu night. Just being honest.

Unfortunately we went for the first time on New Years. I asked for My steak to be prepared medium. It was well well done. We waited over and hour for the food so I just ate it and we left. The server was nice but seemed very slow and not very experienced. I think she got my order mixed up with my daughter in laws.
