    Overall Very good, delicious food, some hit a little better than others. Overall loved the veggie options and mock tails as my date does not drink alcohol. Pleasant and informative server who answered our inquiries. Will definitely put on list of spots to come back to to try out the seasonal specials.

    We always have a great dining experience here and would highly recommend. I do like how the menu is varied periodically and they keep the selections to a nice manageable choices. But this time I stood at the hostess stand for over 10minutes with various staff walking passed me without a word, like "Someone will be right with you" or "I'll have your table ready in about ___ minutes" or some sort of dialog. Yes I see everyone was busy and it appeared short on staff, I do understand, but to be ignored was not like Social and their way of pleasant greetings. Crazy with the road construction and parking. Since it is daylight late, I don't mind walking several blocks alone later in the evening. If COVID didn't negatively affect their business, this infrastructure repair could. I would highly recommend this restaurant even though parking can be an issue.

    We had another fabulous dinner here. A great night for out on the patio. The service was excellent, dinner was unique and delicious. And the desserts were new on the menu, the pineapple upside down "cake" was out of the world! But..... the city of Binghamton is doing major renovation on the street. There is absolutely no parking on State St. for the entire summer at least. The area after dark is scary to walk back to my car parked over by the bus station. Maybe work something out with the metro center parking lot for your customers to park at.

    Ordered drinks and meal at the same time as took a bit for the waitress to come to table initially; we ordered a martini and a virgin Mary as well as a cheese plate, the Ahi Tuna tower and the lobster in lettuce wraps; waitress came back and said no bloody mary mix; a sprite was then ordered in it's place. Other tables were now being seated around us and all 3 tables seated after us received food before we did. Our ahi tuna tower and lobster lettuce wraps arrived but still no cheese plate. When we were just about done with dinner, the waitress asked if we ever got our cheese plate. We said no and I asked her just to cancel it at this point. It was more to nosh on with our drinks before dinner. I said again just to cancel it. She said ok and she was sorry. We said it was no problem. We finished our main plates and she then brought us a cheese plate and said because she felt bad. We said it wasn't necessary and thanked her and asked for the check. We needed to get to a play we had tickets for. We had a few bites of the cheese plate and my husband noticed the waitress included the cheese plate on our exorbitant bill of over $80 when we asked her just to cancel it. Someone else came over to get our credit card and bill so we didn't have the chance to ask our waitress why she billed us for the cheese plate anyway when it was her mistake and we asked just to cancel it. So for the first time ever, we did not tip our waitress. We figured she could have the cheese plate removed from the bill and use that for her tip. Very disappointed and we didn't have time to discuss the matter as we needed to leave for the play.

    I like Social on State as their food and service is usually very good. Unfortunately, for my last visit it was just okay. We were excited to celebrate my birthday but apparently the decision was made early to call off wait staff because of the heavy snow we had in the morning. Unfortunately, that meant they were severely short staffed on an evening when a lot of people were either coming in prior to the play Waitress being performed at the Forum and/or people were without power and decided to go out for dinner. Either way, that left one waitress and bartender doing triple duty to try and take care of customers. In fairness to the staff that was there, they worked their butts off trying to accommodate the large crowd. We had no choice but to leave after after appetizers as we had two young children with us and there was no way they could sit for that long.

    We booked a reservation for 9:30 and the kitchen closed at ten. We walked in and the kitchen and wait staff gave us the look of disappointment because we were a late table. Social never stated on their website that they were ONLY serving restaurant week menu. Our waitress was amazing so this bad review is not for her. The stuffed avocado app was delicious. The salmon was over cooked, the steak was terrible and the pasta tasted like dish soap. Spent $200 with tip. We ordered pizza at the table before we left.

    Food, service, ambiance all excellent. Ahi Tuna salad was chilled to perfection and perfectly rare. NY Strip was tender and delicious. Try the Caprese or Everything Bagel stuffed Avocado. Strawberries and cream with shortbread or dark chocolate and peanut butter ice cream for dessert! Highly recommend!

    Ok. My first time here. I was excited and had high hopes. Now, I don’t mind paying for quality… however I feel like they are just plain price gouging. Had the fish tacos.. tasted like a mouth full of salt. Mac n cheese was ok.. not worth $16 imo. Octopus was delicious. Drinks were lacking flavor. Very disappointed.

    Always excellent service, food, and beverages. I particularly like a cocktail called J Sevilla, which has orange and gin. A favorite dish for me is the grilled octopus, served with hummus and chickpeas. Really tasty. My wife enjoys the Caesar Salad, and the spicy tuna stack. Our friend had the skewered pork belly, served with pineapple, and devoured it. Definitely worth a visit, can accommodate smaller or larger appetites easily.

    I took my daughter to celebrate her 20th birthday! She’s a BU student and I came to surprise her. Food is amazing as always. Service was pretty crappy. I mentioned it was her birthday when I made the reservation and I was annoyed they didn’t acknowledge. The hostess was very unpleasant, when we walked in she didn’t smoke or anything and the waitress was slow and forgot one of the apps we ordered so it was served later than the rest. Maybe cause I’m from NYC and I’m spoiled? The food is so good that I’d go back anyway. Btw, it was a Tuesday night so place was pretty empty so that’s why I feel service should have been better.

    So cold the food cooled so quickly. I couldn’t tell if it just came out of the fridge or not . Turn up the heat the poor scantily clothed staff and just about all the customers were freezing. I hope this was a one time problem. Never had an issue prior and the chef is really good.

    We always have a great dining experience here. The wine and cocktail menu continues to change, maybe not a large variety but each time we go, we find interesting and unique selections. The menu changes up periodically, creative, beautiful presentation and always delicious. The service is always superb, helpful and attentive. Its our favorite place to have a wonderful dining evening! I would highly recommend.

    Food was cold and quick. Like as though it was already waiting for us.service could have been better. Felt like they just wanted to get us out fast as soon as we sat in. Everything was hurried. Food was cold. We have had good food and good service before but definitely after this experience lost the taste for this place.

    Came for restaurant week. Butternut squash croquette, beet & burrata salad and Portuguese andouille soup for starters. Very good. We all had the short ribs with shaved brussel sprouts and cauliflower purée. Melt in your mouth delish. We opted for the Dolce Vita Martini (espresso) for dessert and enjoyed every sip. We’ll worth $30 each and happy to support a local restaurant and local cause.
