Disappointing when the hostess doesn’t read your standing request to be seated away from high traffic area in 90% vacant restaurant. Trout spectacular, cauliflower appetizer also amazing...ribeye far below average, taste ok but was like leather even at medium rare, little or no marbling. I asked if it might be a strip. You might think that would bring someone to check. Brussels sprouts practically raw...Can name 7 ribeyes within a few miles of this restaurant that are much better.

Waiter was A++ and a very nice guy.

I am so sorry to hear that we missed your seating request. I have been up & down our reservation list & could not find a single mention of special seating requests except for a table not wanting the bar area, which we did accommodate. Please do just ask us for a different table if we ever seat you somewhere uncomfortable. We are happy to help where we can. Please feel free to email me (sent privately) if I can help in any other way. Best Wishes, Tasha S. Overmyer Assistant General Manager

The food was very good as usual. We love the ever changing seasonal menu. It took a little long for our order (a couple next to us came in quite some time after we ordered our food and they got their food before us), it was not busy as we arrived for an early dinner at 5:45pm, and we were never updated on the wait by our server who wasn’t nearly as friendly as all the other servers we’ve encountered there. Overall, we still had a good experience with our double date night and will continue to choose Northside Social because the food is great and the ambiance/music is cool and chill.

Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed our entrees and the two sides we shared. I could return and just have the collard greens and the Brussels sprouts - they were so good! I let the restaurant know in the reservation that we were celebrating my friend’s birthday so they brought her a complimentary mini dessert which she very much enjoyed. We will be back.

Food and service were great, and most important was their attentiveness to gluten allergies that my wife and daughter have. Gluten free items were marked on the menu, there were ample options, and our server was very knowledgable and understanding (not even a hint of annoyance which is more common than you might think). Highly recommended for people with allergy to gluten.

I love this restaurant - especially in warm weather when we can dine outside. It's just delightful on every level. Food, service, and value are all excellent, AND they take reservations - a real plus. Parking is easy, close, and free. I'll come back many times.

First, we love all the concepts (NSS, Nook, Kitchenette, Delicia and La Mulita). Between them we probably visit 3-4 times a month for the past couple of years. Of the five in the family, Northside has the biggest issues with consistency. The food is usually fantastic though this time the brisket was not as tender as usual. The service was great where it has occasionally been slow in the past. The biggest concern was that I was served water in a chipped glass that scratched my lip. Things happen, especially when busy but we arrived early in the evening when the place wasn’t even half full. A manager came to apologize (first time a manager has ever visited a table in our presence) which was appreciated though I felt that considering what could have happened a goodwill gesture of a dessert or comp beverage could have been offered. I was a restaurant manager for 18 years and if this happened in one of my places I would have looked to “wow” my guest not just cover my butt.

We are very grateful that you both come in to all of our concepts so frequently & choose to spend your restaurant dollars with us. My sincerest apologies that your visit was underwhelming & that my attentions were not what you expected. When we spoke you downplayed the divot in the glass & my concern was truly only for your well-being. I apologize that I missed the opportunity to wow you that evening. I hope that you will come back again so we can get back on the right foot. Tasha S. Overmyer

Literally the worst service ever. Ordered a drink and waited and waited. Then nobody came to take our order until I said something. Food prep took an hour and needed to ask where my food was-they made up some fake story that the meat was not cooked to the quality they expected so “we’re redoing it🙄”. If true, they shoulda told us about the delay. Ordered a Manhattan and a Mohito for my wife. Both came in wrong glass, were mixed wrong, served with cheap candy cherry—terrible. Not even offered a discount off bill for my headache.
