Food was good and we had a good time. Only problem was the fact that we were there celebrating a birthday and they were out of the rum cake and bread pudding. This was disappointing but other than that it was a good experience.

Always like coming to society, but the one thing I dislike is never getting the requested table. I always reserve a booth against the wall as I so dislike those uncomfortable low blue couches, but never once got it. Always hearing the same excuses, there are accommodating large parties.

Love love the ambiance. It's perfect for a girl's night out , a fun date or just fun with friends. But the food and drinks are not that great. Food is very basic, and lacks flavor and drinks are watered down.

I was on time for my reservations but had to wait 35 mins after my reservation time to be seated because they were waiting on people to pay and get up. It was very frustrating to say the least. The food was amazing though

Went for dinner to celebrate my 50th birthday and really enjoyed everything about this restaurant. Loved the food and service was outstanding! I recommend the rib eye and they surprised me with the bread pudding (I don't like bread pudding but this was amazing) and had the entire restaurant join in to sing HBD. Will definitely go again.

Went for Sunday brunch. Food was good but they didn’t have the bread pudding or sausage. No biggie but sometimes I like a little sweet after brunch. So maybe have a dessert or two. However, making 20% gratuity mandatory for a buffet was not right. The service was subpar. When ordering a waffle we were all given 1/2 a waffle and told to come back if we wanted more. Not cool. $35 per person I should get a whole waffle and the right to decide the tip.

I am a 50+, and I went on Saturday night, needless s to say I only stayed an hour. I am told that my age group attends on Thursday. It definitely caters to the 30+ crowd. Its small and no real dance floor, but beautifully decorated and bartenders were kind, attentive and professional. The host who sat us,had no personality, and dragged. I am definitely going back,

The appetizer shrimp was outstanding as well as the delicious curry shrimp, the pineapple salmon was to die for, and the Cajun pasta was delicious. If you go, you gotta leave room for the bread pudding! OMG - great! We will be back! Keep doing what you’re doing in the kitchen. Our waiter was very nice too and offered great advice on our selections and changes.

The food is always fantastic, but our servers seemed distracted. We had to ask for things twice, which is ALWAYS annoying. Our guy server was friendly but just dropped the ball when it came to being prompt with our requests. Clearly, they need some staff updates. They have to realize that they get quite a mature crowd in there and if they want to keep them, they need to tighten up the ship in terms of service.

We went to society for date night. The first thing we noticed was that it was extremely warm. The host sat us in front of the stage across from a speaker. It was a little loud but the music was pretty good. After about 10 min, we still haven’t seen a server. We flagged down the host to complain and our server appeared from the kitchen. We ordered 4 appetizers and 2 drinks. The food took quite awhile to come out and my margarita was very frothy. The food was pretty good. I just wish the wings were a little warmer. The customers at the bar seemed to be having a good time and have better service. I wouldn’t go back for dinner but I may give it a try for a drink if I was in the area.

I went with 2 friends on a Wednesday night before a holiday. The appetizers we had were great but the service slow. After dinner we went up to open rooftop any music was fine drinks rather expensive. But overall a good time

This place is a must-visit! The happy hour is out of this world and I highly recommend trying everything on their happy hour menu. The atmosphere is relaxed with good music typically, always bustling and full of life. I come here with friends often to take a breather after work. Highly recommended!

Really enjoyed Society. It took about 20 minutes for us to be seated with reservations. Server came quickly. Staff was attentive. Our server did make a mistake on my entree order which added about 15 minutes to my wait time, but he quickly corrected and compensated. Food was good. Appetizer portions were small (5 regular sized shrimp for $12) but that was no biggle. Very lively and energetic. Great dj. Grown crowd. Bathroom attendant was super sweet. Will definitely return!
