Sociale Ratings and Reviews
The entire staff at Sociale is great! Everyone was friendly, helpful with menu selections, and they all seem to work so well together like a team :) The owner Francesco was also a delight to meet! The ambiance in the evening is awesome, a cozy special neighborhood feel, I almost feel like I'm in Italy at eating at a hole in the wall. As far as dishes go, the Spanish octopus is a MUST, one of the best we've ever had (and we've been to Spain many times), the fresh pasta is amazing (loved the agnolotti), for dessert definitely try the angel food cake concoction! Wine by the glass selection is superb as are the specialty cocktails with the perfect big cocktail ice cubes. Bartender will honor requests to tweak to your liking. This is definitely our favorite new hot spot and can't wait to go back very soon!! :)
Best Branzino I've ever had. I am 7 months pregnant and generally avoid "healthy" things like fish. I went for the Branzino on a whim and literally licked the plate clean. It was the first time I can remember that I enjoyed the main course more than any other course, and the rest of the courses were delicious as well!
It was our first time dining at Sociale and our server Rodrigo made our night absolutely wonderful. He was knowledgeable and polite. The food was spot on with all four courses. I can’t stop raving about the octopus. Excellent experience from start to finish.
I love this restaurant so was saddened by the poor quality of the food on Monday evening. The pasta dishes were under-seasoned and pretty tasteless. My partner sent his back, but the replacement was not really any better. However, the staff was gracious as always, and my cocktail was fine. I do hope this was an "off night." I'll certainly return because it's usually a neighborhood gem.
I feel really fortunate we were able to eat at Sociale while visiting NY. The team there hits on all cylinders and its truly a special place. Salumi plate, Ocotpus and handmade pastas were exactly what we were looking for. Wine list is really strong as well.
I cant recommend Sociale enough!
Sociale was the highlight of my trip to New York. The staff were very friendly and accomodating. They were able to find us patio seating. The wine list is special with authentic Etna and Campania specialty wines. The menu choices are extensive and nothing disappoints.
Next time I go to Brooklyn, I will look forward to dining there!
A pleasant early evening dinner with friends, attentive and accommodating service, very good food at a very reasonable price. Pastas are home made, some with whole wheat. Waiter ran down street to catch us when he realized my wife had left her sweater behind. We will definitely return.
I met three friends for a reunion of sorts. We were able to get a table outside on that warm summer evening. Our server was lovely, attentive and did not make us feel rushed which was greatly appreciated. I had the risotto special which was simple and delicious. This is the fifth or sixth time I have visited and I will definitely do so again.
Sociale ably accommodated our group of 9, including two with gluten intolerance. The food was delicious and the service fine. We didn't know anything about it besides what we'd read online, and we're very happy with our choice. Really enjoyed the Barbera and the flourless chocolate cake.
Sociale was well located. We had a family brunch the day after our daughter's wedding. There were 10 of us including our 2-year old grandson. Brunch menu was diverse and the food was good. The best part for us was that we stayed for over 2 hours and never felt pressured to leave.
