We had the best server ever!! She was so attentive and on her game!!
The new patio is a nice way to spend the evening and the service is excellent.
Great environment and great management. We came late at night right before closing and still had amazing service and great food!
Great personalized service in a comfortable atmosphere. Good French fries
Very ordinary at best.
The food was rather expensive for the quality - it was nothing special and hence felt a bit overpriced. The food also took forever to come out of the kitchen.
The service wasn't great- the waitress didnt feel attentive - the hostess on the other hand was very nice and informed us of the parking validation and also advised that they would have a band coming in at 9am so that the noise level would go up.
Overall, wouldnt go there again sadly.
Had a nice experience and a great waiter and a waitress that was training
We live in the neighborhood so it’s a convenient place to go to for drinks and to listen to some really good live music. Food is ok- has improved a bit over the years but not great. Our service on Valentine’s Day was fantastic!
Very good place, much better than I used to think.
We met our son and his girlfriend for brunch at Social. The food was fantastic, as was our server. They have live acoustic music during brunch, and the singer was very good. The only quibble I have is that it's pretty dark. But that's minor. Overall I heartily recommend it!
Service was excellent but food too long time to come and not as good as our last visit few months back. Pancakes especially disappointing but everything else decent.
Everything about this place is great. Service was excellent and the food was amazing. You can tell they use high quality ingredients. Will definitely be going back.
Service and food is always exceptional.
Fish was poorly cooked. Other entrees were okay.
We always enjoy Social. It was a quiet afternoon lunch, but we had excellent service!
Bill & Jeff are amazing owners
And have a wonderful team working for them. The food is fantastic and I had my birthday party there and I went back for New Year’s Eve and was not disappointed it was fantastic! I highly recommend the social restaurant and bar!
It's kind of an odd place, but the food is good. I've been twice and the service is so-so. This past time, my friend had something floating in her water glass and when she brought it to the attention of the server, she just said ooooooook and took it away...no apology or acknowledgement or anything else. It's a very large room, and for a recent Sunday brunch we were the only ones at a table (half a dozen folks at the bar). Breakfast sammy is great, good omelettes, love the chicken avocado club. The English muffins appear house-made. Great fries and home fries. It's a convenient location (provided you don't get sucked in to the vortex of the crazy pike entrance/Washington St merge - stay in that middle lane!) with parking in the connected garage. They validate. I'd go again, it's fine.
The place was empty for a Sunday Brunch hour, and we had the world's worst service. Except for the beginning when coffee was served and refilled, our waitperson disappeared and it took 30+ minutes for the food to come. Also, the guitar player was too loud. On a better note, the food was very good. However, I would not return for brunch.
Dec.21, 2019 We've been coming here for a few years now. The parking garage is a plus for sure. We've experienced Saturday evening with live bands and the feeling of a nightclub but our favorite times now are Sunday brunch. The two of us can share one of the delicious benedicts and it's plenty as a brunch. And the Margaritas are one of the best around, and we've been around. We enjoy this during football season and just hang out at the large bar. However, my rating dropped significantly after this Saturday experience. We had reservations for the four of us and were seating immediately because at 6:30 we were one of a handful of tables with guests, as was the couple at the bar. But it took ten minutes to get one drink and a beer with two bar tenders busy with who knows what. Then our waiter may not have been scheduled to wait tables because our presence seemed to annoy him. Food was good as usual so in the holiday spirit I left a 30% tip $60) despite the service....and I sort of thought a special thank you was in order, I guess not! We'll be back for brunch for sure but hopefully management will address their service short fall.
My friend and I had brunch and it was delicious. I wasn't really aware it was a hotel restaurant, but I would definitely go again. There was live music (guitar and singer) that was a bit on the loud side, but I guess we just got used to it. They validate parking, too.
We went for brunch on a Sunday and enjoyed the food—clearly there is a skilled chef in the kitchen. There was a guitarist/vocalist supplying music—and he was quite good, but the volume was so high that it felt more like a concert than music to enjoy brunch by. The service, however, was the WORST. There was one waitress for the whole place and she was inexperienced to say the least. Too bad management has done such a poor job of resourcing the dining room—we felt really sorry for the poor waitress and won’t likely go back despite really liking the food.
Marisa, thank you very much for visiting us last weekend and for your feedback. We sincerely apologize for the first impression, know that your comments are shared with our team so we can make the necessary adjustments to avoid a repeat lapse of service. This is certainly not the level of hospitality or experience we strive to provide our guests and hope for another opportunity to earn your trust. Sincerely, Bill.
Very good food and drink menu. All of the food was excellent. Service was slow and a bit spotty.
The service was very slow. Our beers were warm. The food was fine but nothing special. To top it all of we saw a mouse running around. We informed the hostess and under her breath she said “soo you didn’t see anything”. Would not go here again.
Our server was outstanding and we all enjoyed our meals!
Very casual and comfortable. A bit noisy for a limited amount of people. Service was attentive without pushy. Food was very good and well presented. We will go back and try the Sunday Brunch
Delicious lobster mac n cheese! Cocktails were great too and they took us early for our reservation
Staff was attentive and great service. Food was very good too.
Best Turkey burger I’ve ever had!
Everytime we dine here, it’s amazing!!
Social is an excellent place for couples or families. The food and service was excellent. We were a large group of 15 and got everything we needed. The owner actually came by to make sure everything was good. We had a great time . Would definitely recommend!!
Not enough wait staff, the food came out cold, staff couldn’t check the table to refill coffee,water and drinks. Hostess didn’t lift a finger to help.
Good food but service was incredibly slow. Took an hour for our eggs to come out and restaurant was not even full.
The steak tips are amazing! Made a reservation. Table was ready. service was great!
We were the only party in the entire place. The service was terrible. The waiter only spoke about a large function that was happening that evening. We had to find him to oder and the food arrived 45 minutes later. Not a good place for a business lunch.
👍🏼👍🏼👌🏼👌🏼 great atmosphere
This place is AMAZING!!!! Restaurant is beautiful and the food was absolutely delicious - one of the best burgers we have had in a long time. Service was top notch - we will definitely be going here again!!!
Food, value, parking, service, atmosphere, all absolutely FANTASTIC!!
My wife, who can be extremely harsh on our dining out ventures, was thrilled.
Great Mothers Day!!
Great food, great service, great prices and a friendly, welcoming atmosphere.
Great service always
