Social Vinings is an international restaurant located in the Vinings area northwest of downtown Atlanta. It has a large bar area in the first section of the restaurant that serves fully loaded cocktails, red and white wines, beer bottles and sake. The dining area is casual, yet classy. There is a lively buzz from the tables around you that creates a cheerful vibe inside this restaurant. This is a good place to go for anything from a business meeting to a family reunion.
The menu at Social Vinings has an unusual variety of foods. Along with fantastic steaks, sandwiches, roasted chicken, pork chops and crab cakes there is also a full sushi bar with sashimi and nigiri dishes as well.

Had a reservation for this restaurant and it was not open when we got there. Very disappointed with this and how opentable didn't allow for additional reservations to be made when this one couldn't be honored. Ruined my NYE
The server dropped a drink trey and dropped the F bomb in front of my kids - not cool. Employees all had attitudes - I've given this place several chances but it's always the same - just okay food and service and a kitchen that is lacking
Food and service were great. Atmosphere was fantatic with the live music and bustling bar area. They have separate dining area if you still want to see and hear the music, but not be right next to it. Will be back.
I have been here several times and enjoyed the food and service. This time the food was spotty. The service was not poor but the server looked as if he could care less whether or not we were there and only became friendly at the end of the meal when he gave us the check. Since I have enjoyed this place in the past I will go again but not if the service was the same. There are too many other restaurants in the same price range to visit and they appreciate our business.
I was very disappointed when I visited Social Vinings this time. It had been about a year since my last visit. It is not the same place that it was. The nice lounge area near the front has been turned into a bar...the bulk of the restaurant in really one gigantic bar. Perhaps this meets the current need, but it was a big turnoff for me and my guest who was there for the first time based on my recommendation. She ordered the pot pie...said it was just awful! Too bready and not at all what she expected. She ended up eating a part of the flatbread that I ordered. We told the server and he indicated that he "should have shared" that this dish was not a typical pot pie. I paid the check for both of us because I was so embarrassed to have her pay for something that she did not like. Based on this experience, I will not return to Social Vinings and will not recommend it to people who highly consider my dining recommendations.
Our server Chloé recommended the pork chop entrée with braised kale, and macaroni fritters. All I can say is Awesome! Everything was cooked to perfection. They didn't skimp on the most important part of my cosmo...the alcohol. I will definitely be returning. It was a great girls night out!
We always enjoy our food at Social Vinings. It' s often good, but not great! We enjoy the experience, but the food is not always the best! I had sushi and my wife fish. We enjoyed the both, but it was not great! Just OK!
