Our server Will was fantastic and the food was great. Not cookie-cutter, but different and unique. Delicious. There were five tables on a Friday night; I hope Northside Social makes it through the pandemic. Please go support this great establishment!

In this time of the pandemic, you have to be a little careful about the places you choose to dine out. I was very comfortable with my surroundings. The food and drink choices were just right and not over-bearing and also fairly priced

The food was phenomenal and well worth the price. I found that they had a great wine list and was excited to pair with my meal, however the size of the pour was disappointing at $12-14 a glass.
Our server was less than attentive, but he was timely.
For some reason our old fashioneds were made with lemons? When asked to make with an orange peel and bitters, it tasted great and much better. All in all, the ambiance was perfect for a date night, the hostess was busy but pleasant and kind, other servers were kind and the food was perfect.

Tracy was our server this time and we've had him before. Very nice and a very good server. I had the burger, not what I expected as it was 2 thin patties and therefore you weren't able to request a temperature. My friends had the salmon and loved it as usual.

Excellent service. The food was decent enough and not overpriced but somewhat pedestrian. I opted for the up charge to get anchovies on my Caesar salad and they were disappointing. The stout braised brisket was tasty but ordinary. The decor is fresh and understatedly modern which helps class up an otherwise characterless setting.

Once again Northside Social did not disappoint! Love the new menu. There were 7 of us and everyone LOVED their entrees and appetizers. I had the Summer Garden Bucatini and it was wonderful. One of our friends had the Spicy Thai Shrimp Pasta and he loved it. Two of the group had the Crusted Salmon and loved it and same for the Hamburger. All in all it was a great evening. Wednesday night was 1/2 off bottles of wine under 100 so that was a great value. If you haven't eaten here for awhile, it's time to go back and try out the new menu.

I was in town visiting and Northside Social was recommended. The food was really great, the atmosphere was comfortable. The service was not the best. It seemed as if my waiter was also a bartender. He didnt come very often to check on us.

Everything was excellent except for my potato crusted white fish. It was quite “fishy tasting” only in some bites which is weird. It was also a little mushy. The potato crust tasted like the chef used potato dried flakes one you would use to make instant mashed potatoes. I loved my green beans, best part of my meal. Husband liked his salmon entree. Good drinks from the bar. Excellent service and ambiance!

The service was lovely, quick and polite. The menu offers a range of options for folks but the flavor was minimal especially for the price, our favorite of the night the was our calamari steak frites appetizer. The atmosphere is modern, yet welcoming with gorgeous plants.

Great dinner! We started with the Caesar salad and calamari fries. Some of the best starters we had. We also enjoyed the potato crusted whitefish and the fried chicken. Service was great, care taken for pandemic clean controls too.

This is my favorite restaurant! Everyone one is friendly, professional and personable. The food was great! My wife had the White Fish and really liked it even though she is not a fish person. My Salmon was perfect. We celebrated our anniversary and sat outside, it was very nice setting for us.
