State Social House Ratings and Reviews
Service was horrible from the moment we walked in. Greeted by a rude hostess who seemed inconvenienced that our party didn’t know if our reservation was upstairs or downstairs. The waitress then proceeded to bring the wrong drinks. When asked to correct, we got the impression that we were being high maintenance. The table ordered onion rings to share and they tasted like they were deep fried in old grease. I had chili and it tasted like the burnt bottom of the bowl was scraped. We knew it was going to be bar food (and expectations were low) but surprised at how extremely poor both food and service actually was.
We had a third hand recommendation for this place. It was within walking distance from our hotel, so we decided to try it. The area had been experiencing a heat wave, and the day had been very hot. We walked into a very hot, noisy restaurant. It was if the AC wasn't even turned on. The dining area has very large chairs that limit space from one table to the next, so the seating is quite tight. I realize it is a bar, and there would be drinking and noise, but it was exceptionally loud with a dude, maybe connected with Social State, standing over a table toasting and dropping f-bombs in the dining area. I was ready to leave, but my group told me it was ok, and they were ok with staying, mainly because we were tired, hot, and ready to eat and return to the hotel. Everything ordered was tasty enough, overpriced from what we're used to. Our waitress and servers were friendly and courteous. Would have been cooler if we'd been served outside, however, that isn't available at this place. Kept thinking if they opened the windows, perhaps it wouldn't have been so HOT. We left very hot and tired, but at least we weren't hungry. If you're ok with loud, unairconditioned bars with a very loud dude strutting around swearing and knocking back shots...this is the place for you.
some may remember this venue as the Red Rock. Same place different name. We came for the live band kareoke upstairs on Wednesdays and it was really fun. The band was good and very helpful to the newbie singers. Live band kareoke is a lot harder than regular karaoke, and it kinda helps if you've played with a band before, which I have, but not everyone has. The food was in small portions and overpriced, but tasted decent. The expected thing anywhere in West Hollywood. The drinks were average price for the area, but not crazy expensive. The bar tender was a little heavy handed which helped. She also played drums on one of the songs, which was a bonus. Overall, it definitely had an authentic sunset strip vibe, and didn't feel like a tourist trap.
after making a reservation four days in advance, i was pleased when the restaurant called me to confirm my reservation and ask me a few questions about my dining preferences. we were a group of 4 people going for brunch and to watch the football game. the entire first floor was filling up with sports fans and the hostess took us upstairs and sat us near the men's bathroom and a cold breeze. i specifically requested to be near a TV, so they sat us at the worst possible table on a floor without any other customers. we asked to move and were told all the tables downstairs were reserved....I thought that was the point when I made a reservation and even confirmed when the restaurant called me. my group and I went for the bottomless bloody marys, so when we ordered them, the server told us the bloody mary bar was only downstairs, making our experience even more frustrating. needless to say, it was a very confusing and annoying experience, so i won't be going back.
Food - I don't know what happened to state social but it went from a place I looked forward to visiting to a place I MAY visit once a year from now on, if that. Brussels sprouts were gross. Avocado Tuna sashimi pizza was not what it used to be. It had no taste. I was so let down.
Service - Whitney has no business being in customer service. I don't know if the Botox in her face keeps her from smiling and having a personality, but she is the biggest sourpuss. Took forever to take our order, didn't fill out waters until I had to scream across the room (literally SCREAM) to get her attention. EDGAR was the real MVP. He sat us. He brought the food to us. He checked on us multiple times. He was super friendly and nice. I would have left a $20 tip for him alone, but what I left out of courtesy for Whitney I think was still too much. Who hires people like this? Won't be back for a looooooooooooooooooooong time! What a shame.
Bottomless brunch is awesome. The mimosas come with pineapple juice, orange juice or both and are only $15. They replace the bottle of champagne as needed so you don't have to wait for the servers to refill a small flute. Food is a la carte and a little over priced but very competitive for the neighborhood! Great view of the strip!
The food is ok. I expected better. Drinks are good. Prices are expected for the area. Cool vibe.
Side note - You guys really need to be able to separate checks. Our waitress only opened one tab and then made us do the math at the end of the night. We were a party of 10. 5 different cards needed to be used. Im assuming this is so that she could add an automatic 20% gratuity. Kind of a buzz kill at the end of a decent night.
In short, I wasn't really impressed with anything at State Social House. It has a very convenient location, which is why I'm sure it's busy. I'm not much of a drinker, but it appeared that they had a really good beer selection and drinks menu, but I can't say the same thing about their food. It really just wasn't very good. Their brussels sprouts were super soggy, and the cauliflower wasn't that much better. The pizza was pretty good, but if you're looking for food, I would move on and find another joint. If you're looking for a great place to watch a game or hang at a low-key bar on Sunset, this is your place.
In fairness, I only had appetizers to eat. The food tasted fine enough, but didn't blow my mind. Their drinks selection was pretty good! The service was exceptional! They were very kind, patient, and attentive. I think our party left the place feeling welcome, which is always nice!
Would recommend to friends. & I'm willing to go back again and try some main courses next time :)
Although I made our group reservations a couple weeks in advance AND called the restaurant directly to discuss and confirm they did not staff accordingly. We were assigned to a girl who was our server yet she had to also cover the entire place. She eventually just disappeared and we relied on the bus boys and Zae, the bartender on the other side, to place ongoing orders. When I called prior to our reserved party I said I would be ordering at least a half dozen pizzas for the group but after 4 pizzas came out we were told they didn't have any more dough and could only provide gluten free dough. Fortunately Zae, who knows we are regular customers there, managed our table and our orders personally seeing that we were taken care of professionally and efficiently. Food is always good there as well as the drinks but was surprised that this special occasion we were celebrating was disregarded by whoever manages and staffs for group reservations.
We had a fun time and loved the Cigar lounge downstairs.....the drinks were great and well priced....the food served a-la-cart style and expensive....couldn't get a well cooked steak ($28 no sides) though...wasn't going to send it back a second time even though blood still leaked from everywhere. The service was good for being such a busy place.
My husband and I were in town and wanted to see some NFL football. They had all the games on, which was great, but we felt the ambiance and food were just terrible. They had very few vegetarian options. We ordered grilled cheese and the fries came IN the sandwich! That just grosses me out. The service was very friendly, so that was good. The place itself had no fans or AC that we could tell and so it was stifling hot in there. We won't be going back any time soon.
Grilled salmon filet could not have been more tender. Surprising in that it was a thick slice - though cooked and flavored to perfection. The side of green beans was crazy good in its butter/garlic mix.
Service was great - the lady who seated me was also my primary server. I was fortunate enough to be given one of the tables outside - on Sunset Blvd. It was little quieter than inside, which I would've enjoyed if I had been with a crowd of friends.
Looking forward to my return trip!!
I've visited this restaurant twice in past few months. The reason I keep coming back is the sheer fact that they have the best comfort food in West Hollywood offered at below-Westside-LA prices. Being from the Midwest, finding a great Chicago dog and chicken wings can be difficult sometimes! Additionally, I had the same server both times (although her name escapes me now; blonde and from NYC) - on point and quick service paired nicely with a friendly personality. I highly recommend this place if you're looking for a casual place to watch a game or have a few beers while catching up with friends.
One of several establishments in WeHo that offers live music some nights of the week, State Social House sits in the middle of the pack in a crowded field. I was there to catch my daughter and her band headline that night and was directed upstairs to the Attic. The main floor downstairs seems like a great place to grab a bite while enjoying views that make you feel like you're in the center of where everything is happening. The Attic, on the other hand, is a different world. Entrance is free. Seating options are to snag a stool at the full service bar, if you can find one, or to settle into a comfy club chair clumsily arranged around a small table. The chairs are really too big for the space and once my party of three was seated we were locked in. There was hardly room shift in our seats. This option also comes with a two drink minimum. The service is good. Our waitress was attentive and our drinks arrived quickly. I ordered the State Fries which came loaded with cheese sauce, bacon bits, and jalapeños. They were okay. There were few others seated in the club chairs (most were standing at the bar behind us) so we had a great, unobstructed view of the small stage. Sight lines might have been an issue if there were more people in the chairs. The experience was similar to that of the Voodoo Lounge down the street, only here the room is arranged better for viewing the stage. If you're following an act who happens to be playing the Attic a good time is easily within reach. If you're just looking for a place to get some drinks and hear some live music from artists working toward their big break, then this place rates as one of many middling options.
This was by far the worst dining experience I have ever had! We were in LA to celebrate a birthday and have some food and drinks before going to the Viper Room. We were challenged to find a location that could take our party of 8. State Social was available so we went for it, what a mistake! Our server JT was incredibly rude and totally inept. He was slow, refused to put in several peoples drink orders - literally did not place them with the bartender. Who does that? Several of us actually had to go to the bar to get our drinks - repeatedly. Then, he did not take our food order until he was forced to and again, did not bring several peoples meals out until at least 15 min after the others were served. This person should be find another profession because he gives this establishment a bad reputation. I will never go back, and will happily tell people to avoid this place at all costs. Its no surprise this place was empty compared to places like Everligh, which we went to after and was lovely.
Pretty much what you would expect but enjoyable. Met a friend for Monday night football. Crowded but not too crowded so could chat and watch sports. Had the tuna tacos which were very good. The wines were surprised good as well. Overall good experience and I will go back.
I was excited to try the Sate Social house for my birthday, the drinks list was extensive with a good atmosphere, but I ordered the chicken burger and had to send it back not even being able to bite through, I ask for a ahi tuna salad that was soggy and bland, the other food that came out was below average. The waitress was nice but we had to go to the bar several times to get service. From my experience I would recommend for a drink and good atmosphere but not for food.
There aren't many casual spots along this stretch of Sunset that serve good food at a reasonable price but this place is an exception. Sure, it can get crowded and noisy but it's in a great location and it has a good draft beer list. I had the skirt steak with a side of mashed potatoes and small salad and everything was tasty.
I rarely write reviews, but I just had to for this visit. It was my first visit to State Social and it was for the World Cup. Considering how busy and crazy it was, the service was GREAT! Even though there was a long wait for our food, the steak and eggs were cooked perfectly to my specification. I was impressed! Thank you!
Very dim & couldnt read our menu at all. Had a reservation too. Took FOREVER to order our meals and get our waters. Hunting down our waiter became a game not only between my boyfriend and i but between the couple next to us too. Super loud, so i wouldnt suggest what i accedently did and go for a date night. Seems like a good place to go watch the game and for hipsters to drink/eat in hollywood. Great ambiance but totally not worth the money. In my opinon, the place should just be a bar. The food was nothing special or worth the price. Not saying it was expensive but it wasnt even good. I dont know, Ive seen people i know tagged here and as ive expressed, the place is nicely decored, i just did not enjoy myself like i had hoped.
