Service and cleanliness was excellent. The staff reflects the ambiance!! The reason the rating isn’t higher would be the brisket.... it was very fatty, however that may have been the cut. I will definitely go back.

Great food. Server was so pleasant and helpful. Atmosphere was good, however the acoustics make it hard to hear one another. That was our only challenge as we were with another couple, made conversation a bit hard.
Definitely would return regardless.

This was our 2nd visit, tired a few different menu choices as the first time we were completely happy with the choices, but the Nachos left something to be desired..they could take a lesson from sister company Moose Winnoski's in Kitchener and Barrie. Nachos were soggy and you needed to dig through a huge pile of greens to see anything.

A perfect Friday night dinner!

Going to Sociable is one of our favourite places to eat as they always deliver a great meal and dining experience. This time they outdid themselves! The seating we got using OpenTable was the best on the patio. Our server was outstanding and really made our night. Looking forward to going back soon.

Food was amazing, we were sat at the back by the bathrooms though out in the middle of the room, kind of awkward. We didn’t have a great experience with our server, she seemed to rush us the whole time, she seemed irritated when we asked her a question about some of the drinks. We weren’t looking for a cocktail that was too sweet and we mentioned that to her, we ordered this one gin cocktail that was so incredibly sweet 3/4 of us didn’t even finish it. I have been to sociable many times and have always been a fan, I brought 3 friends with me who have never been before and I had a terrible experience. My friends probably won’t be back now and they definitely won’t recommend it. I’m very disappointed in this experience.

We went there for my wife's birthday. We had a wonderful time as a family and the sever was excellent. She was friendly, checked on us often and handled any requests in a prompt and patient manner. We also felt safe the entire time we were there on the patio and felt they were handling new health protocols very well.

DIY Lettuces Wraps were real yum, the hot sauce with the aioli was a great combo with the chicken. And I heard that the Carolina Chicken Sandwich my friend got was really tasty too. We got the warm pretzels as an appetizer, and my only suggestions would be to use maybe half the amount of salt, since we wiped a large amount of it off ourselves. Otherwise, great meal, service and atmosphere.

A modern approach to a tavern, with a good-sized menu of pub-style food. Excellent staff, who paid just enough attention to us. We originally sat outside on the patio, but asked to be moved inside because the umbrella over the table would only partially deploy, and the noise from the street on top of the music over the sound system meant hearing conversation was more difficult. Inside, the traffic noise, wasn't there. Tables were set well-enough apart, and there was an effort towards keeping things sanitized. Washrooms were limited to one person at a time, too. We were greeted at the front door when we first go there by someone who advised us of all of the rules of the restaurant (when to wear masks, etc.)

The food was tasty, served hot, and without fuss. All-in-all, a nice experience.

We’ve always had great experiences at Sociable, so they must’ve been having an off night. Our waitress was not super attentive and there were a few issues with our food, including my husband’s steak being overcooked and one of the sides missing from the plate - waitress did not check in at all during our meal so we could not let her know. When we did let her know when she came to clear our plates, she was not overly concerned.

This restaurant presents as a place with rigorous/efficient Covid-19 tracking protocol and requirements to wear a mask when one gets up from your table. I had reserved a table for 3 (social distanced) to meet my cousin passing through from London, ON. At first when being seated the waitress referred me to a table without cover in the hot sun. The alternatives offered on my refusal were indoors or at a small bar type table wedged against the wall in a corner which I initially accepted. However, I then noticed that a table for 6 had just been vacated and cleaned. I requested to sit there and was eventually accommodated with the result of a quite enjoyable dining experience socially distanced by at least one chair each between my cousin and his wife. I am quite satisfied that all my requests were met with positive results.👍🏾👍🏾
