It was a great experience! I went with my girlfriend for our two year anniversary and the workers welcomed us in and congratulated us. The chef gave us nachos on the house and the food was amazing!

Drink order came out wrong x2 — splash of grapefruit instead of cranberry and no slice of lemon as ordered. Then birthday girl who has dietary restrictions specified salmon without the greens and no pepper, asked to substitute grits; “no problem” It came with pepper and greens (she got the grits). They left out the peas; had to reorder. The pork shoulder was more like prepackaged pulled pork. The flatbread was delicious, however. Service was slow, that we understood because the waiter, Jason, had a 10 top. Jason, however, seemed more into bussing his tables for turnover than attending to us. If we ever go back it’d be for flatbread and/or sandwiches, which looked great at nearby tables.

Overall the experience was great. One frustrating thing was that after we ordered drinks and were ready to order appetizers we couldn't get the attention of our server. She ended up going to three other tables that came after us before finally coming back. I even tried to wave her down and couldn't get her attention. It was my wife's birthday and she was really hungry so I was trying to at least get appetizers ordered. I think it was fine until we discovered the table that came after us got their drinks and appetizers before we even had ordered ours. After that things went pretty well, overall a great experience. Just wanted to make sure and provide feedback.

This was the 2nd time we’ve visited this place. We said we weren’t going back after our first visit but decided to give it another try. Both times we were rushed like they were trying to get us to hurry so they could seat their next table. We enjoy a night out with friends and don’t want to be rushed. The longer we stay the more money they make so this makes NO sense to me at all. We won’t be back.

Social has been one of my husbands favorite restaurants in Lafayette for years. I decided to bring him there to eat dinner for his birthday and ended up leaving with empty stomachs. The menu has changed and they do not have many options. Usually in June they have more seasonal items for summer. He was so dissatisfied with his food he couldn’t take more than one bite. My food was not bad but it was so over salted that I couldn’t eat half of it. The waitress was very apologetic and offered him other options but he was no longer willing to try anything else after tasting the food that he ordered.

Food did not disappoint. The server “Payton” is to be lauded. Her knowledge of the menu, coupled with her attention to our needs was no less than 5 Star Michelin quality.

We look forward to many returns.

Service was exceptional. Atmosphere drinks superb. Food selection not so good. Substitution rules for some of the food that’s not very good -1.
I feel if they upped their menu to a better quality selection and allowed some substitutions with out finning you for it, their ratings would be better. That’s the only real issue I had.

Today we sat at the bar for lunch. The Fried Green Tomatoes and Biscuits and Honey were fantastic. We had four cocktails between the two of us, and they were all excellent. I had planned on sushi, but she had to have those FGT’s. So glad I agreed!

The food was excellent, service was good, ambiance was nice aside from the A/C was on way too high for a less than 70° evening. Only real complaint is the server didn’t mention that they charge a fee for paying with a credit card. It is on the receipt but I only noticed that after my card was already ran and I would have gladly paid with cash if I’d known ahead of time that I would be charged the credit card fee. If the restaurant isn’t willing to pay the fees themselves they should require their servers to verbally mention the fee to the guests.

My wife and I’s experience was amazing! The food was great and the server was even better! It was my wife and I’s 11th wedding anniversary and our server made us feel like we were the only ones in the restaurant! I believe her name is Kayla. I hope I’m not wrong about her name. She was absolutely amazing! Thank you for making our night that much better! Can’t wait to go back!
