Northside social always has creative, delicious foods from (my favorite) the buffalo cauliflower to their glazed salmon. They rotate their cocktails on a seasonal basis and come up with interesting, tasteful infusions of various ingredients. I highly recommend this place whether it's a romantic night out, brunch or family dinner, and will be back soon!

Service was timely and personable. Lighting was dimmed while we were there. I asked server to turn up the lighting and she did, saying she thought it was too dark, too. A little noisy. Cauliflower salad, chocolate brownie and ribs were tasty!

Server was polite and sweet; not blaming her- but timing of food delivery was horrendous- server was good at replenishing hot water and lemons- not her fault again but beer on tap was flat; took forever for salads to arrive/ then even longer for entrees to be served-
Oh and ordering was a treat- ordering off the regular menu- yet we were not allowed to substitute sides that came with the meal; devour menu had only one gluten free entree and only one non gf dessert- no substitutes!
3 our of four of us found our entrees to be delicious- seasonings and herbs in perfect balance- husband found the short ribs to be very disappointing.

The menu changes every time we are in, which is great for variety but frustrating in that there are some fantastic dishes we've had which we'd love to have again but can't because they are no longer offered. We'll keep coming back to be surprised.

Our server Jason was great; a bit casual in style but great attitude, very helpful and attentive, and really seemed to be enjoying being there for us.

We hadn't dined at NS for awhile, maybe a year or so. Not because it wasn't good, it just was o.k. The menu these days is outstanding. Our server was outstanding, the food was really wonderful. Well done Nicole! We'll be back.

Overall excellent dinner, especially the cider braised ribs and stout braised brisket. Delicious side choice. Salmon was overdone and a bit “fishy” would not order again.

We were disappointed in the Northside Social. Our favorites on the menu have been discontinued and replaced with new unappealing dishes. We ordered fried chicken that was inedible due to the toughness of the chicken. I hope consideration is made to return to the better menu.

The food was great but our server was extremely rude. She made snide comments about our wine selection because we did not select the most expensive wine on the menu - making sure to point out that we selected a twist off cap bottle. If you don’t like it and don’t want people to purchase it, don’t offer it.

The Northside Social has a nice ambiance, it was quite busy for a Tuesday night and yet cozy and quiet enough to have conversations. The service was excellent, very attentive, but not overbearing, and the food was above average as well.

Our dinner plans took us to a competitor that was an hour wait. We discussed going someplace else and noticed that you were near by. We made easy reservations on the website at 7:45 pm and were eating at 8:15 pm. We are totally impressed ! The food was delicious and the waitress very nice and genuinely friendly. We will be back over the holidays with our friends!

Love this place but not a great experience this time. 1. Really, really strong dish smell. 2. Moved us to another table Which created further delays to us getting service. 3. When waiter finally attended to us, we told him what time we needed to be done to make an event. We ordered right away and let's just say we didn't make our scheduled departure. Just went down hill there. When check didn't come after several prompts , I went to find the waiter to let him know again that we needed to depart and that I was going to retrieve the car while others waited for the check.
Got the car, waited another 10 minutes. Sadly I think his tip reflected the service. The food was very good.
