In spite of the restaurant being very busy, the service was excellent and the food was superb. a little too noisy but the place was buzzing.
Amazing very typical Italian place . Francesco, the owner makes you feel at his home
It was my second time there and just as my first time the food was fresh and delicious. The staff was always available, responsive and courteous. The owner came over to say hello as thank us for coming. I am looking forward to my next time back. If you want a wonderful experience come to Sociale!
Sociale is a spectacular neighborhood Italian eatery, elegant and casual at the same time. The lasagna is utterly divine. All the staff is delightful, service is tip-top and neighbors table hop, greeting one another, Tuscan wines in hand.
Really nice servers, delicious food... a bit noisy!? But, overall, a really excellent place for dinner.
I love it here. They always have delicious soup which is the only thing I can eat. The people I go with eat more and enjoy it.
Service was bad, food was overcooked
Excellent excellent excellent ALWAYS
The overall experience was amazing except when a lady came in with her dog and the owner told her that she could not have a dog in the restaurant but let her stay anyway.
Great night at the Sociale, the quality and flavor of food was very nice and you can find a great wine card. The ambiance and service is also good. A place to note in your good adress of Brooklyn.
Best pasta place in the city!
A well thought out delicious menu. The flavors of the pasta, delicate seasoning of the meats, made this a great culinary treat. I highly recommend for dates or business dinners.
We live in the neighborhood and are lucky to eat here once a month or so. The service is excellent, the food really exceptional, and the owner is always on site making sure everyone is comfortable and things are running smoothly. Really a gem of a spot.
It's great. I have special food needs and they are so accommodating.
We took a chance and picked this restaurant from reviews on Yelp. The food was delicious and the service was great.
Very Hospitable Host. Service was good. Ambiance cozy and lovely. Overall. food was good.
The space is a creative, but not fussy reworking of an old building. The service was gracious, but not overbearing. The food was delicious and interestingly constructed. The wine list was also good. It's an excellent cho8ce for a contemporary Italian restaurant.
Great service and wine selection. Desert was a home run!
The food was great. There were 4 of us. Just 1 person was disappointed with the duck and potatoes. Every thing else was great. Definitely going back. Service was great.
As always a unique dining experience! Francesco is the ultimate host. So personal, inventive menu and delicious!!!!
The ambiance is so sophisticated and serene..,
It is a European dining experience.
My go to place for business lunches where you don't have to shout to be heard. The food is excellent. I love it for Sunday brunch as well. Empty at lunchtime in spite of the excellent food.
Always a wonderful experience
We had a great meal at Sociale. The lasagna was delicious along with the chicken confit and filet mignon. We also shared the cheesecake which was great and a chocolate dessert. Service was only a little slow, but we were in no rush so it wasn't a big deal. Reasonably priced house wine too. I'd definitely come again.
BEST PASTA EVER!!!! The sauce is the best we ever had.
I live in the neighborhood and highly recommend this gem, both for its consistently delicious food and it’s warm, casually sophisticated atmosphere. The service is terrific too, interested and helpful but never overbearing. More than a dozen times here and never anything less than highly satisfied.
Francesco and his staff will make you feel like family, but it's a restaurant so the food better be good - and it is. if you want a step back into a family run Italian restaurant of the 50's, this is it.
It was extremely loud. There was a very noisy group next to us. Wish they had sat us next to another available table far away from the noisy group. There were plenty other options. The apps were ok and both fish entrees were way over cooked and wouldn't be very good even if it was prepared properly. Would not recommend this place to anyone. We were the last table in the restaurant on a Friday and they stared cleaning around us. Seems they wanted us out..
Great food in my old neighborhood
Food was excellent as always but the grilled octopus appetizer was phenomenal! A must.
On Christmas Eve, Sociale offered a “Seven Fishes” special that was out of this world. Every single dish was beautifully created and perfectly executed. The staff, as always, was exceedingly professional. This is one very special restaurant. We highly recommend it.
We had the best night at Sociale! Amazing atmosphere, cozy, romantic, awesome energy. The staff was incredible. Super nice, attentive and sweet. Exceptional experience. Can't wait to go back. Food was perfect, presentation and flavor combos. Octopus was off tge hook!! Wine was spot on!! And our daughter 7yrs old loved it too. Thx Sociale. Until next time...
Lovely holiday meal with the family. Staff was kind and warm. Thanks
always a pleasure to eat at this special place - a neighborhood gem. Good food
Amazing. Every time.
Really nice vibe, good music, nice layout. Food was just tasteless sadly - had the soup, calamari, crunchy string beans and the halibut. Soup was actually decent but needed a ton of seasoning, calimari was inedible and we sent it back, halibut wasn’t bad per se it was just like eating cardboard and the string beans were over cooked and again had no flavor. Waiter was very nice but didn’t have much faith in his opinions on much, he was just executing. If I didn’t travel from the city to go maybe I would have not been so critical, definitely not a destination spot.
Great food and atmosphere with a personal touch. Worth the trip.
My favorite place in the area! The food is consistently good every single time I go.
Always excellent and one of our favorite restaurants
Food is very well prepared and presented
Staff was great as well
