    The overall vibe was great. It’s moderately priced with a farm to table concept. Food, although good, is nothing special.

    It was ok. They were out of coffee before even opening for brunch, which could’ve easily been brought in from any number of nearby stores and coffee roasters. No coffee at brunch is a strange thing. The food was ok, but not good enough to justify some of the other things. The service was a bit strange but friendly. We had to ask for condiments and salt and pepper weren’t brought. Seems like that should be an automatic. They never asked if we needed or wanted anything else, just brought us the bill and machine immediately after clearing our plates. Overall it was fine, but won’t go out of my way for it.

    It was a bit of a chaotic experience. They didn't ask about our reservations, and in the Open Table reservation form, there was an option for a $30 pp brunch menu. However, our server was not aware of it and neither was the kitchen. It seems they only had one server for the whole place, which meant that service was slow. The food was good though, but the ambiance did not seem the same from The Social Bar and Table of old.

    Had a great meal on the patio. We Had the scotch egg, fish tacos, and mushroom ravioli and they were all excellent. Service was good too. Only thing is the patio chairs are really really uncomfortable. Wonderful dining experience, though…and I’d definitely go back (and sit inside).

    Decided to try a new to us restaurant for an average Saturday night out. Very disappointed…the ravioli dish was cold and gluey and the steak frites was almost inedible…the steak was not fresh, cold and drowning in a sauce…I also upgraded to a rib eye big mistake, it was the lowest quality rib eye I have ever eaten. Also the rib eye seemed to be cooked with a sous vide method and anyone who is familiar with rib eye knows it has to be grilled…will not be coming back to this place!!!!

    The service and ambience were both lovely. Mussels and frites were great. My guest’s pasta dish was a bit ‘gluey’ and flavourless.

    Brought our visitors here because We have been here before and loved it. However this time was not as enjoyable/good. We reserved our table in advance through the OpenTable ap, only to arrive at the restaurant with our guests and told our reservations had been cancelled. The server sat us in an adjacent restaurant which was currently closed (only open certain days). It was extremely quiet and felt strange. Our server had to return to the table twice to inform that they were out of selected beverage choices. Service was okay, she tried her best despite us being out of the actual restaurant and placed out of sight. Food was great as always. Even though I found this last visit disappointing and somewhat embarrassing, I would still recommend the social bar and table to others. The food is local, portions are fair, and it’s always delicious.

    The food is delicious, but this is a TINY, crowded and loud place. The floor slopes and you’re either pitched forward or leaning back. We were going to leave but they kindly offered to move us to the back room which was much quieter but that area wasn’t officially open so it was cold and dark.

    Stumbled across this place online, and booked it for a lunch date. A quaint cute little find! A very intelligent and well managed menu. A smart wine list. Great service, and great food! Whether you’re spending a few days in Port Hope enjoying theater, or just passing through perhaps on your way to Kingston or beyond it is well worth a stop.

    Excellent food, excellent and friendly service! Small area for tables and our first one was by the door so very cold when people were coming in and out of the building. We were kindly switched to a table by the window before our main course arrived. Much better temp but the floor and table were on a noticeable slant so a wee bit uncomfortable. Still, overall a really nice meal and great service.

    We really enjoyed our first experience. The entire evening at the Social was great and we will go again and we would definitely recommend the Social. It would be great if there were a few more items to choose from on the menu. However we understand that at this time there are definitely supply issues for everyone and this could be influencing this matter. Thank you
