Tasty food- buffalo cauliflower was great! The seasoning was not overbearing but still tasty, and cauliflower itself was prepared great. Salmon was very tender and risotto mix is a great entre choice.

The Devour Indy was a great deal. We especially enjoyed the delicious fried chicken, yummy risotto, and heavenly brownie dessert. My only suggestion would be to serve warm potatoes in the middle of winter, not cold potato salad, even though it was quite tasty.

We went for the Indy devour and I order the risotto dish I was a bit disappointed there was not much to it the risotto was good but it was too too salty it came with mushrooms and broccoli in the center and I felt like the proportion of risotto to vegetables was really off. There was a tiny portion of vegetables. so it just didn't really feel like that substantial of a meal . I would definitely advise them to cut down on the salt in the dish because to me it was overwhelming salty. Other meals that I've had at Northside Social have been awesome so I will definitely be going back but I will not be ordering the risotto.

The restaurant had a mix up with bringing the food out so my date had her entree for about 20 minutes before me which was very awkward. The food was good and the potions were generous.

Took my 16 year old grandson whom we haven't seen in a while. Seated right next to the front door and hostess desk and in front of windows that when someone pulled into a parking space their lights shined right in our eyes! Not the most relaxing spot to hear and have a conversation. The food was okay, but have been there before when the food was GREAT so was a little disappointed in the difference. Server seemed to want us to eat and leave as he kept coming back asking if we were ready to order before we even had our appetizer. i am one of those diners who wants to eat her appetizer first, have a few moments and then order so all the food doesn't come out at the same time! All in all not a bad place and will go again, but will ask for a table away from the front entryway.

Excellent Service (Anne)- Great menu, have only tried the starter menu and it hasn't disappointed, but on my next visit will have to try that Redfish. Excellent cocktails, try the Pearsecco, Nelson County Smash, Buffalo Cauliflower (best in the city), Parm Shrimp and the Pork Belly. Save room for the coconut cake!

Both my husband and I had the Duck Trio, and it is a wonderful, flavorful creative dish. The serving size is very generous. Loved the black bean and rice croquette. Our server Mark was very professional and friendly and good with advice.

Food in the past has been better. Salmon dry. Went at 6:30. Noise level low at this time which is nice. Still like the place and hoping our dinners are not the new norm.

The chicken dish with pasta was amazing! Perfectly cooked it was one of the best chicken cutlets I’ve ever had! Amazing combination of flavor — subtle and not too complex. Great chef!

Meal was exceptional. The special of filet with "beef stew" and mashed potatoes was so good words cannot describe. The pork tamale was exceptional as well. The Key Lime Pie for dessert was SOOOOO very good. It was just a great meal!.

Our party had a very nice New Years Eve experience with excellent food and friendly service. We were seated right on time on what can be a very busy night, and they also honored our request for a table in the bar ( we find that to be a bit less noisy than the dining room - better for conversation). All in all, a nice spot for a festive holiday dinner. We eat here somewhat frequently, and have always had good experiences.

Overall, loved the place! First the positives: the food was outstanding~the Best shrimp and grits in town. The stout braised brisket was also delicious. The flavors were incredible, presentation was beautiful and not outrageously priced. Our wait staff, Mark was a delight- clearly knew the menu and made great wine suggestions. Negatives: we were seated right by the door on a very cold night and was told there was no other table available ( ok it was NYE but thought another 2 top might be free but...) so I dined with my coat over my shoulders. Second complaint had nothing to do with restaurant but woman seated right next to me had wine spilled on her by Mark. As unfortunate as that was, her reaction was ridiculous and brought the manager over several times to fawn over her as well as later giving Mark quite the talking to. Some of the wine hit my coat but, hello, I wiped it off without making a scene. That circus spoiled the ending of our lovely dinner. Overall a gem!
