None of the meals we ordered wowed us and certain sides were served room temperature (polenta, potatoes). We ordered two of their most of expensive bottles of wine and they were just okay. We had an awesome waiter, really enjoyed the apps and also liked the atmosphere. Overall experience 3 out of 5.

I went to meet up with friends for a last minute Galentines date. Food was very good. Waiters were very friendly and the atmosphere was very peaceful. Adding to my list of staples in Indy.

My wife and I went here for Valentine’s Day and it was a perfect spot to go from start to finish. We will definitely be back because the food, service, and ambiance was absolutely incredible. I haven’t had that good of a filet in a very long time and theirs did not disappoint

One of the hands down best all round restaurants in Indianapolis. The menu and food quality is World Class. Especially, if it can satisfy my particular parents ! The salmon was to die for and the Chicken parmigiana was amazing as well ! The service was attentive, prompt and assertive. I always leave NSS wanting More ! Thank you !

My wife and I went to Northside Social for a date night. It is a very cozy spot. The waiter recommended a great red blend wine. The cornbread appetizer was excellent. My wife got the stout brisket, and I got the fried chicken. Both were delicious and filling and perfect for that cold, snowy evening.

Great atmosphere, service and food. We would recommend the crab dip, fried chicken, and parmesan crusted chicken. We can't wait to go back and try other items on the menu.

My husband is one of the most pickiest eaters this side of the mason dixon, but he loved the pork tenderloin and risotto. Enough to where he said we would be back! Thanks Northside, you will be added into the date night rotation!

We'd never tried NSS but I'd heard good things so the DevourIndy deal was a great way to taste some big menu items and we loved every bite! The server was swift and professional and accidentally learning they have half price bottles of wine on Wednesdays was a big bonus! Cannot recommend the slow braised brisket enough

My husband and I dined at Northside Social on New Year's Eve. It was the best meal out we had during 2020. It was our first visit but definitely not our last. Both of our meals were delicious. The drinks were tasty. Our waiter, Will, gave us exceptional service.

New Year’s Eve - reservation was a little early for us! Appropriately distanced and our server was polite and knowledgeable. Our 18 year old asked for a mocktail and the server asked the bartender if that was ok, it was so she was happy. Dinner was delicious, have been several times before and will go back.

Scott is an excellent server and gave us great recommendations. He was always around when we needed him but never felt like he was hovering. The holi-daze drink was phenomenal (Terry is a rockstar bartender) and you can’t go wrong with the Vitiano Rosso Red Blend. We’ve had Scott as a server before at Delicia and he’s always a pleasure!
