It’s been along since I have received great service, the young lady we had did a good job which made us want to come back.
Music was much too loud but a great HH! Honestly the best ive been too. Mature black crowd with a little bit of after work turn up
I had a reservation and didn't get acknowledged by someone until 30mins later, which cut into our dining time. The food was fair and our server was very nice, but the prices we're a little outrageous. I probably won't go back anytime soon.
A really nice evening and thanks to our great waiter TJ!
We arrived at our reservation on Friday and the wait staff relayed that the restaurant was unaware of a large party that was booked at the same time and they did not know how they were going to handle honoring our reservation along with other people.
Unfortunately we had to reserve dinner at another location.
No point in having a reservation as they were overbooked. We were directed to the rooftop which didn’t have the full service menu and had no AC.
Food was amazing, our server checked in on us regularly and updated us on the status of our food.
Service was wonderful. Servers attended to our every need. Will be returning.
All the food is good and they give great portion size.
The food here is s good, tasty, and reliable. Been eating here for a few years. Party is on.
Went for Sunday brunch; live band was playing and the atmosphere was thumping with enthusiasm. The food options were magnificent. They have an unlimited mimosa deal for $25 which is worth every penny. Two mimosas will cost you almost $25. To he only reason I did not give 5 stars on service is b/c the servers do not tell you all available options or choices the restaurant has to offer such as 2 different types of unlimited mimosas or that there is an upstairs dining and bar area. We found out talking to other patrons. Overall I will return and enjoyed myself thoroughly.
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!
This was the best experience
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
