Society on High has become the go-to restaurant for me and my co-workers. Great menu--everything is very well done (salads, sandwiches). Service is brisk but attentive. A bit noisy--that's my only complaint. Can't wait to try the outdoor seating!

I discovered Society on High walking by their outdoor patio one day and have had several lunches on the terrace. Now I work in the building and it's a great place for us to take business associates. Great food and service!

Get the salmon burger. Best lunch item on menu.

My coworker and I had trouble deciding what to order--not because we didn't like much of what was on the menu; it was because liked all of it! I ordered the chicken sandwich and she the tuna--both well-seasoned--and the fries and chips were divine and plentiful. The noise level wasn't too loud for conversation, but that might've been because we were seated in the back corner. We will definitetly return!

Our server was lovely, but everyone else there looked miserable, especially the hostess who called to confirm the reservation and then sat us at a table by the kitchen door despite multiple other options. When we inquired about those other options, she was less than gracious. It was clear that there were easily 1,000 other places she'd have rather been than there. Was it her or how the place is managed? Who can say? I'll probably not be back, which is a shame because the ambiance is nice and the food was good.

Since the last time I was at Society on High, they emphasize and have a more extensive tapas style menu in the evening (there are only about 4 entrees). The tapas is fairly broad and therefore lends itself to plate sharing whether just 2 or a larger party. We had the risotto balls, calamari, steak tips and kale and broccoli fritters. Nothing cutting edge in that ordering and therefore the results were what we expected solidly executed. The wine list was reasonable though they were out of the original Italian wine we ordered but the substitutes recommended were good alternatives. Service was prompt, efficient and friendly.

I know no one comments on music in a restaurant, but the background music selection was the best I had listened to in ages. Add that to very good food and service, and you just have the ideal lunch I guess.

SoHi was a lovely experience - friends and I arrived as the local salary men and women were drinking after hours so it got loud.

It wasn't that bad after food and drinks arrived and we indulged in the '4 for $20' special.
