From arrival to departure the dining experience at Social was truly a treat. The staff were helpful and the food incredible. Even with safety measures in place it reminded me of pre-COVID times and for that I am especially grateful. I will definitely return and look forward to the next wonderful night out at Social.
Ben was the best host ever. Felt like we were in his home!
It was a special occasion and they acknowledged it which was so sweet. Food was really good. It was my 7thvtine and ill keep coming back. Still as fresh as first time.
Excellent Resto. Beautiful outdoor seating space.
Service is very good et j'apprécie vraiment beaucoup que certains serveurs parlent français! La terrasse est magnifique!. Musique un peu forte du restaurant d'à côté.
D'habitude (je vais à ce restaurant depuis près de 10 ans) mon canard est toujours délicieux, mais cette fois, la viande dure et sèche et le morceau du canard plus petit.
Le tartare que mon fils a pris était délicieux, mais pas les biscotttes qui l'accompagnaient. Le plat de saumon parfait!
Après avoir fait part de ma déception au sujet du canard, on nous a offert un dessert gratuit. Merci beaucoup!!!
Had a very nice meal in their spacious and appealing courtyard patio. The food was very good and we appreciated the service as well.
As expected, food and service were very good.
Excellent service and food. Felt totally safe with measures taken during Covid
very nice patio seating with the red umbrellas and trees and lights reminds me of European patios. The food is not bad but can be much better. The price of the food doesn't reflect the quality or flavour, either you offer better quality food or cheaper price.
They have a great set-up in the outdoor courtyard. Really a beautiful space especially when the sun goes down. The menu offers lots of selection without being overwhelming. The food tonight was excellent and our service was friendly and helpful. Everyone was practicing safe distancing. It’s such a wonderful city and a great location.
We had a great evening in the outdoor terrace at the Social. Service was very good, ambiance was great. Food and wine selection were good. Food preparation was not extravagant, food was flavourful and portions were just right. We appreciated the attention to detail and Current public health requirements due to COVID-19. We will be back.
Went for an evening of dinner and drinks to celebrate a friends birthday and had the best night! Big thanks to all the staff!
Nice ambience, great place to go for a drink, but the food was not worth the price. Much better fare for less nearby.
The hamburger was excellent! Maybe the best I ever have had.
The patio is also the nicest in Ottawa.
Service was good, but no one was around when we were ready to leave.
Food was excellent.
Service was horrible. Had to ask twice to get our drinks. Never was given plates to share appetizer. Waitress never stopped by table to check on us
Very good service , delicious food and great ambience
Our server was fantastic and the food delicious! The champagne to celebrate our birthday girl was an unexpected wonderful surprise
Great service and great food. We really enjoyed the dinner and ambience
Welcoming upscale restaurant in the heart of Ottawa. Quiet and warm, perfect for conversation. Fresh food with daily options at lunch - tasty and wholesome. Wait staff was polite, enthusiastic and well -informed. A range of prices. Lovely presentation of dishes. Thanks to Social, we enjoyed a great meal with friends.
Ken was our server and he gave us a joyful dining experience while I was visiting Ottawa for the weekend! Thank you!
We had a wonderful lunch on Saturday; it was my first time visiting the restaurant. Two of us had the steak frites, and one had the chicken avocado club. The food and service were outstanding.
The only negative I have to mention was that the photos to the right of the entrance are not evenly spaced on the wall. Please fix this LOL
The staff were amazing and so accommodating I ended up meeting my friends there for drinks. I do believe that Social makes the best steak fritz in the city! I recommend Social to all my friends it is one of Ottawa's jewels always look forward to dinning there.
Cheese cake felt gelatinous, not what I expected, everything else was excellent
Food was good - service terrible. Had no one serving us then random people would / the bus boy was pretty much serving us .
The starters and the service was impeccable. That being said, I pay 48$ for a rib eye and get something that I would pay maybe 28$ at the grocery store. The quality of that meat was terrible for that price. My wife took the pasta with seafood, she got 1 shrimp and 3 scallops...
Always a good time. Great food, awesome ambiance and amazing service.
Only downfall was cheesecake dessert which had a gelatinous non cheesecake taste and texture...thankful you didnt charge!
Such a great experience at Social! The staff was very nice and professional, the vibe of the restaurant was very upscale and romantic, and the food was all amazing!
We were there for Valentine’s Day dinner and it was easily one of the best meals we have ever had! The beef tenderloin was amazing!
Outstanding. What a beautiful restaurant. Service was very good and food delicious. We had the steak and frites and the sousvide lamb sirloin. Both cooked perfectly and delicious. Highly recommend this restaurant. Bit pricey but worth it
food, service, and atmosphere were all outstanding. Overall experience was exceptional, will certainly be back.
I loved the decor and low lights. But the music was far too loud for a dinner date! The service was not great, may have just been our server (forgot the bread, never showed up with the dessert menu, didn’t mention we might like a side dish with our main if we were hungry). We only ate a main dish and both had the same (the BC salmon) which honestly was nothing to write home about though it was presented with flair. The wine was excellent as was the bread.
I would return for drinks and possibly for dinner to try something else, mainly because I liked the restaurant and location. But there are plenty of other places I like just as well where the food and service are better so we’ll see :)
Good. Food was very salty
It was perfect, cant wait to be back
Excellent night out and our server went out of their way to help celebrate a special occasion.
Excellent food and polished service in a classy restaurant. Only problem was that the music was too loud.
Food here never disappoints me and I do really enjoy the Wednesday Live Jazz. Service was a bit slow maybe because the place was very busy when I came.
Excellent service and great food.
My girlfriend and I go here every year for our anniversary and are always routinely blown away by the great food and incredible service from start to finish.
It was New Year’s Eve. I called ahead to see if we had the option of their a la carte menu or only their set menu for the evening. I was assured both would be offered but that was not the case when we got there. The beef steak option chosen by my husband was over cooked and tough. My meal of cauliflower steak option was tasty. The service was good.
