Wonderful food, great cocktails - outstanding small neighbor restaurant. The owner is very hands on giving personal attention to the dining experience. The baked penne is to die for!

The Social has always been a great place to dine. There were 4 of us and we started with bacon wrapped scallops. This is always our go to starter and it never disappoints. We all had a different choice for our entree and it was delicious. The owner Patrick came by to make sure everything was to our liking and thanked us for visiting his restaurant.

The social was our first choice for our anniversary dinner. Table was available when we walked in and the server was very quick and pleasant. The food, as we've come to expect was excellent. My bride had the pork loin special and i had the lobster ravioli. Both were excellent. Patrick ( owner ) was in the dining room greeting guests and ensure everyone was pleased with their meal. His personal touch is one of the things that makes The Social exceptional.

We've loved this place since it opened. We used to live within walking distance and have moved out of the area. It had been a couple of years since we had been but Patrick recognized us as if we were regulars. The food is always great and the staff is friendly and attentive. Had to check worth the drive to remind us that it truly is "worth the drive."

This was our second visit to this gem and it was just as good as we remembered from our first visit. The staff are so kind and helpful and give that extra touch of of service that makes you feel well cared for. The food was very delicious with good sized portions. They even accommodated our friends' gluten free and vegetarian diets with the waitress giving personal time to share the options they could do. We were celebrating my husband's birthday with friends and they even brought a special dessert with candle at no cost. We will definitely be going back to this wonderful restaurant again.

We went on a Saturday night with reservations. Were seated immediately at a nice table away from the crowd. Stacy was a wonderful waitress; fun and attentive, and knew her stuff. Food was very good and all prepared as ordered. A very nice evening. It's one of our favorite places and a go to spot for sure.

We were there with a large party of 9. Our waiter was McGregor who did an outstanding job. He was on top of everything: drink refills, water refills, food service etc. I come here quite often so I already know the food is great. My guests really enjoyed the lobster bisque and the Oso Buco especially. Off the charts good. The price is very reasonable especially for the quality of food. We spent about $60 per person including alcoholic drinks, appetizers, main dishes and we shared 3 desserts for the table. I highly recommend this place. It's my favorite place in Santa Clarita.

It's always a pleasure to be at The Social, my Lobster Bisque was a bit salty today, otherwise you can't beat the deliciousness at this place. As long as the place keep open and continue to serve delicious meals, I will continue to go to The Social for sure. I am working on trying out every single dish on the menu...
