Our server was truly exceptional! I didn’t catch her name but she was knowledgeable and went above and beyond for us. (Dined there on 2/28/2020 and you got us green goddess dressing!) I am a restaurant server myself so really appreciated her conscientiousness. The food was good to decent. We did have to send back one app (crab dip) but server said it wasn’t an issue. Fun and lively atmosphere so be prepared for noise. There was a terrific band that started playing around 6pm (we got there at 5/5:30). Fun dining experience! Great drinks!
Food is great and so js the service usually but every time ee come here the live music is so loud we can barely hear ourselves think let alone have a pleasant conversation at our table. I love that there is love music but I suggest it’s more of a background / ambiance situation until later in the evening when the restaurant turns more into a bar scene!
Ordered 2 pizza and a steak and pizza arrived almost 45 mins before the steak did and it was over done and ask for no garlic butter on it and it was on it disliked
Was there for Valentine’s Day dinner. Had the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairing. Food was very good and course flowed well with the wine. Sat in the cozy bourbon room which I would recommend. Overall great experience and our waiter slash bartender was very accommodating.
It was a great meal, little pricey
It was unusually loud with a live band playing. I was also disappointed to see my favorite appetizer of fried brussel sprouts was removed from the menu. My steak was too charred on the outside
Food and service was outstanding! We will definitely be going back.
I’ve been here a couple times, but this time we were there to eat and have a couple drinks before the hockey game. It’s always a nice atmosphere with good food and good service.
Held a corporate dinner for 18 with out of town guests. Everyone in the group loved the food and atmosphere at Downtown Social. Will definitely keep in mind for our next gathering.
Food is always great! Staff is excellent! I would recommend!
We were on a mini vacation and loved the meal Great atmosphere
Great service, great food, great music loved the atmosphere!!!
Wait staff could have been more organized. 3or 4 different people brought us what we needed, the our waitress was no where to be found, knowing we were waiting to go in to listen to the band.
The customer service is amazing here. I had a concern and the waitress truly listenend and then addressed it as she said she would. Within minutes a manager came over, which we did not expect, and addressed it even further than we had expected. The food is very good with a nice variety of unique options and tradition offerings. The portions are appropriate.
Food was excellent, drinks were made perfectly, service was on point.
My friend ate something that caused her to cough a lot. Instead of either ignoring her or trying to do something about it they just accused her of being drunk. The "guy who runs the place" wasn't very professional.
Nice outside if weather permits (but service seemed slow and infrequent outside). Inside is very noisy due to the high ceilings. LOVE the food!
The food was good--our waitress was exceptional. On the negative side, our "exotic drinks were a bit bitter; not what we were expecting.
Great food, great meal and awesome ambiance! First time there..really enjoyed it!
This was a small gathering and our waitress was very accommodating with helping to give individual bills. The food was great and the atmosphere was great also, allowing us the ability to carry on conversations without feeling like we had to yell. We really enjoyed the Downtown Social.
The food was pretty good. It was too loud though. Music was playing loudly making it hard to even talk to the person beside me. The beer selection is great and the lemon cucumber martini was delicious .
The steak frites were outstanding. We were seated outside right away and We totally enjoyed the band, Outcrops, playing next door. Initially it took our waitress awhile to take our drink order but after that she was spot on. We will definitely be back.
Service stinks but food is good and atmosphere is very nice! Sat outside with a great band playing next door.
We are outside and that was very relaxing. Food was outstanding but it took a while to get our desserts served. Waitstaff was very attentive.
It was ok. Food was not anything special. Atmosphere was fun. It can be really loud
we went for dinner as we had received a gc as a gift. we ordered prime rib medium rare and steak frites medium. our dinners arrived over and very under cooked (each dinner was wrong). although we both ordered apps, only 1 of us was given a 2nd complimentary app while we waited for new dinners, my date just sat there while i had my 2nd soup. the overdone dinner came back overdone again, the under done was put on a grill, charred, tasted like char and still had very rare pieces. the manager comped us my 2nd dinner, which i had refused to accept anyway, comped our 2nd round of beers and gave us a $25gc. he seemed somewhat condescending as he told me he was, "sorry YOU had a problem," with the prime rib as they, "never have complaints on it." the bite i took of the 1st order was tasteless and both cuts were thin and very fatty. the waitress was nice but we had ordered 2 beers when we sent back the 1st round of dinners, and my soup, then the 2nd dinners, arrived before the beers. i will return only to drink the remainder of the 2 gc's and never go back. VERY disappointed. i only wish i had brought my phone so i could submit a pic.
We really liked the setting , atmosphere and especially the food. Delish, plated well and a perfect evening. The restaurant has an open floor plan, spacious enough to not feel crowded , yet not to feel empty.
Service was very nice but very slow, wasn't that busy and waited a while to be seated with a reservation, had to pour our own water. Good otherwise
Great open space, but a bit on the loud side. Food and service were very good with lots of choices. Love the flash fried brussel sprouts!
We had reservations in the Bourbon Room. It was quiet and private there. We were able to enjoy each other’s company and have a decent conversation. If we were in the other larger room, it would’ve been a different situation since that was “social”. Our meals came promptly and all was accommodating for our need to leave for a show across the street. Thank you!
Great food but the atmosphere was very noisy
First visit. Our server was very good answering questions and making recommendations. Definitely going back soon and looking forward to sitting outside.
Food was delicious 👌 they were doing a benefit for a local which is very sweet, I've been here before and enjoyed it
I would drink there but the food needs a lot of work.
Had house salad with grilled steak and it was delicious! Also, the brussel sprout chips were out of this world good!
Good poutine! Good size portions. Nice downtown restaurant.
Food was great. Entertainment was too loud. Server was ok not a lot of personality!
We have enjoyed every meal at the Social, staff is phenomenal truly making the whole experience memorable.
I have celiac disease so I was excited to hear that they have gluten free options. However, there aren’t many choices. Also, there are a few fried items that are labeled Gluten Free that I was interested in like the fries but I asked and they do not have a dedicated fryer. Which means they actually are not gluten free. Unless nothing that has gluten in it goes in their fryers. I had a full salad with steak and the portion was a bit small. I went home and had a snack because it didn’t fill me up. My husband said his meal (not GF) was delicious but the portions were a little small.
The waitress was great though!! But not sure we will be back.
