              6 of us ate on Saturday night and were taken to the great semi private table at the back of the restaurant. All of the food was fantastic - presented beautifully and so so tasty. We loved Little social but 5 Social is even better!

              Arrived a few minutes late but had contacted restaurant beforehand so all good there. Had reserved a booth which was provided. Maitre D could have been a little more friendly otherwise the staff were excellent! Food was very good although some items on the menu were sold out. Ambience was friendly and wine seecltion good and not overpriced.

              my starter was amazing. main of sea bass was disappointing. Tough to the point of inedible. Dessert sadly I only had 1 choice as I’m dairy free. So it was a mixed experience.

              Prix fixe absolutely delicious and excellent value for money. 3 courses for £24.50 and it includes an amuse bouche, tasty bread, a pre-dessert and petits fours. Only qualm was the water was a little inattentive at the beginning of our meal - perhaps because my boyfriend and I are clearly students (aged 21) and unlikely to spend lots and lots of money. Service was quick for the meal itself, perhaps a little too quick. We were in and out having had 3 courses in an hour and a half.

              I liked Little Social and therefore was not in a hurry to try 5Social. But should have gone there sooner, as the experience was "high five" indeed. What a transformation - congrats to the interior design team. Getting out of Storm Denis' way into such an elegant restaurant ensured that my business meeting was off to a good start. The prix fixe menu (we took the 3-course option) was full of flavours - and may I suggest you go with the half-bottle wine option (excellent recommendation by the head waiter). The Head Waiter and his team were professional and charming; my guest had a good laugh trying to understand from one of the waitresses what a forced rhubarb tart was as a dessert. A great lunch indeed.

              Food and service were excellent. Decor was elegant with a lovely combination of colors, materials and textures. Even the plates had been well selected. The noise level was so impossibly high, however, that conversation was almost impossible without the decision to shout and add to the din. So sorry, because we really wanted to return, but probably shall not.

              Some dishes were very good, others were not. The poached lobster, avocado, artichoke and hazelnut starter had a crisp, unnamed ingredient, which may have been apple, that totally dominated the other flavours and ruined the dish. I wish I had sent it back. The lamb chops tasted lovely but were too fatty.

              Food menu wasn’t great and the food was pretty average and below average for the price. I doubt we would return. We were sat next to the bar when it would have been nicer to be seated in the main restaurant since we were early diners.

              Food is outstandingly delicious, and the décor is terrific. I think that they need to add service staff. It took too long to order our wine, something we ordered only when we ordered our food.

              Overall good apart from rushed service - kept taking our plates away too early!

              I have been here numerous times over the past 5 years. On this occasion, my expectations were not met. We sat for ages before flagging down server to bring us tap water. Then took too long to be able to order a drink. Ordered my signature cocktail... it was ok not great... too much Campari. Service improved. Wanted us to order dinner but we were just on first sip of cocktails. I think they were short staffed. Food was good. Needed to ask for 2nd glass wine. Was not relaxing. Finally small thing; if you are able to use open table app to book, it is annoying to have missed calls with no caller id from a restaurant insisting you call back to confirm... as my phone cannot be with me for work I am happy to return a text or click confirm on open table w a prompt but not to listen to frantic /anxious person voice message not clear re number insisting I return their call n have to google the number to call back. Hope this changes.

              We booked 5 Social for a family meal to celebrate a special birthday - we had such a good time. The ambiance was just perfect - very organised, considered and attention to detail but without being to fussy and over the top. The food was outstanding and we all loved everything we ate (which was a lot!). We would definitely recommend 5 Social for anyone wanting high quality food in a lovely environment.

              We went for New Years Eve dinner and had the set menu. Unfortunately my boyfriend is a little picky and doesn't like pumpkin or fish - so two of the dishes weren't suitable for him. I contacted the restaurant in advance and after a little bit of chasing they said they should be able to switch out those dishes for him. On the day, we arrived early but our table was already prepared and waiting for us. When we checked that it would still be ok for my partner to have different dishes, they pointed out his menu. He had his own separate menu with his different dishes printed out. It was such a lovely little touch that made us feel welcome and like we weren't being too difficult! As always - the food was delicious. Balanced just right - never too rich with clear flavours in each part of the dish. I love it here and it will always be on my list for special occasions. We had to leave early and the head waitress ran after us to give us our mince pies that arrived as we were leaving. So lovely! Thanks so much.
