Nice ambience for brunch. The menu has the basic brunch items I.e. chicken and waffles, shrimp and grits. The remainder menu is not very extensive if you are a foodie. The service was great and the venue was clean and not crowded. If you like a Caribbean cuisine this is a place to try.
Service was great. Went for game night on Monday and was pleasantly surprised how fun it was.
Just offer the options to be up or downstairs. The food was okay and bottle mimosa were warm
Service was horrible, we waited a hour and a half before receiving food, silverware or drinks. Not to mention, we didn’t know who our server was, no one came to the table except the hostess. The hostess ended up taking our order and stated that our server will be with us momentarily. The hostess came back to the table 30 minutes later and had to retake our drink order because she stated that the server lost the paper with our order on it. We made reservations online for brunch at 3:30pm, after we placed our order we were told that brunch was over at 3:30pm. We couldn’t get bottomless mimosas due to being told that they ran out of champagne. The people that arrived after us received bottomless mimosas. We asked to speak to a manager several times to discuss our concerns. We were told that she was unavailable and they didn’t know how long before she will be available. We were asked did we want to wait to speak to her in which we stated we did. She never came to the table to address our concerns. Another worker came and addressed our concerns, I really appreciate her excellent customer service and taking care of our concerns in a timely fashion. Once the food finally came, the food was good and well prepared. Due to the poor service, I don’t think we will be back.
The atmosphere was phenomenal!! Old School and New School Hip Hop and R&B for the grown folks!! The food was OUTSTANDING! Anytime I am in the DMV, I will come here!
Come Thursday’s for the live band.
Food is fantastic! Customer service was horrible. Problem with seating with a reservation in place to furniture falling apart. Also 15 minute wait to use the woman's restroom. Owner really needs to step in and take leadership over the front of the house.
The food was so good! I made reservations for a friend birthday we were sat as soon as we came in! I forgot my waitress name but she was so great! The service was really good! Not crowded because of covid!
Me and my best friend went to celebrate my birthday and 25 years of friendship. The Food, drinks and DJ were AMAZING! The hostess even had my server bring me complimentary cake for my birthday!!! Can’t wait to visit society again.
Love it, everything by was good & the band was excellent!
I enjoyed my reservation..I went during brunch for the live music will be there again
Worse service i ever had.
The security to enter the building was a first for me, we live in Upstate New York and aren't used to being searched before entering a restaurant. The food was phenomenal! I got their Jerk Chicken entree, my wife ordered the pasta dish. I can't wait to try their Jerk Wings! We'll be back again!
This was a phenomenal meal. Would highly recommend!
Our server was exceptional!
Food was amazing , Drinks are affordable, & Service was great!!
I enjoyed dining here. I heard a lot about Society Lounge and was finally able to go. They are taking COVID precautions - so, dining experiences are limited to 2 hours and seating is also limited. It’s not clear to me whether there’s outdoor dining available. I would definitely come back and encourage anyone looking for a laid back experience to check out the Society Lounge.
Currently too loud for just dining with no dancing. Could hardly hear ourselves.
Great happy hour spot! Bring great company and you'll have a good time. Adhere to COVID rules.
Food was absolutely delicious. Fantastic vibe and felt very covid safe.
Good place cheap and excellent service
This was my second time visiting and it was just as great , if not better than the first ! All my friends were pleased and satisfied with the good and atmosphere. We got to try almost everything on the menu and was satisfied. Thanks again for the awesome service.
I really enjoyed my birthday dinner at Society! Our waitress was very attentive and made sure everything went smoothly!
Love love love this place! I will always be a returning customer... the food is great & the vibe is even greater!
Amazing like always. Great food, drinks, atmosphere and vibez.
The food was great. Location was great. The atmosphere was very chill but upscale. I will be back.
Great service atmosphere and the staff is gracious. love this place
Awesome Red Snapper
Brunch was okay. it wasn't what We expected. will I recommend this place to my friends absolutely not. needs improvement.
Everything was great- food, drinks, pricing, service and atmosphere.
The food was very good! I got the Cajun pasta with chicken and it tasted amazing. Our waitress left us there for a long time and my friends and I got irritated but the manager named Melissa helped us out and she was very kind and had a great attitude.
This was my first visit to society so I didn’t know what to expect based on the mixed reviews..upon arrival you are greeted by the host outside. They check your temperature at the door before you can enter the restaurant (my first time experiencing this and I’ve been to several restaurants) and there was no wait to be seated. The temperature check made me feel a little more secure about eating at their establishment. Society had a nice ambiance and a great selection of music.. The servers were very attentive and helpful in recommending their favorite dish. I went with the fried snapper and my sister in law chose the catfish and grits.. the catfish and grits was delicious and the fried snapper was pretty good.. we also had the veggies rolls which were good and a Belgian waffle but it was a little over cooked.. overall a great place to eat and will be returning again.
Very nice spot for Happy Hour. Loved the taking of Temps before entering. Did not go upstairs but it sounded nice. The waiter was sub par. Nice but very subpar. Cood was great! Yes, we will visit again.
Excellent service. I would definitely go again.. really enjoyed myself
If you don't mind waiting forever for service, but when it comes to paying the check the service is fast. The waiter is not going to be slow to pick up the check just slow to bring you your food & drinks then this is the place for you.
Table wasn’t clean and took 30 minutes for table to finally be cleaned. Another 15 minutes before our order was taken. My mean came and took another 15 minutes for my dates dinner while my food got cold. Bill came with one price and then I was charge more once my credit card was processed. Worst experience I’ve had in a very long time at any establishment.
Nice Happy Hour vybe given the current pandemic environment. The servers are really pleasant and attentive.
Good food, but too pricey and the service sucked! I will not return smh
In a group of 5, the food arrived cold for all and needed to be reheated. With my own personal dish, the side of collard greens that should have accompanied the meal only arrived after I mentioned to the waiter about its whereabouts. The service was overall poor, with little accountability. Even when our group asked to speak to the manager, that process took over 30mins. We did not enjoy our brunch at this establishment & I would not recommend. I will never dine here again.
