This place is phenomenal, the food was outstanding, the staff were incredibly welcoming and friendly. Such an amazing night with my girlfriends, with an awesome deal for ladies night.
Really solid Italian food in good ambience, with top service. You can see here and there the 3 michelin star heritage, but bottom line, dunno what the fuss is about. Only the duck dish was exceptional, the rest was nice. The veal was actually very bland. Know many better Italian places around the world.
I was very pleased with the food and with the Service.
The timing was right and the flow of a 3 hour dinner was perfect.
We did not feel that we are sitting there for such a long time.
I will very soon come back with my close friends.
The staff was very good, accommodating, and had impressive coordination with deliveries to our table. The Maitre D was omnipresent and everything ran like clockwork. And the chef visited the table at the end of the evening, which was a nice touch. The staff was without question the highlight of the experience and the main reason I would consider recommending this restaurant. Location is somewhat difficult to get to, out on palm island, but I believe worth it if in the area or looking to see the island. As for the food, it was mixed. First, the dishes they bring out in the beginning are amazing. Unique, full of flavor, and great presentation. This had us very excited for the entrees. One friend got the sea bass and the preparation, presentation, and taste of this were immaculate, leaving us all wishing we ordered the same. Another friend and I each ordered pasta dishes without asking the appropriate questions and noticed right away that the pasta was not made there fresh. We were then told that only the stuffed pasta dishes were made fresh and the other pasta was shipped in from a distributor. While I understand I can take some fault in not asking this before placing my order, I also don't feel it's unreasonable to expect a $50 spaghetti dish to be made from fresh pasta. Overall, the ambiance, staff, and the seafood dishes were very nice, though I'm unable to recommend this restaurant based on the fact that if nice, contemporary restaurants in LA serve fresh pasta for all dishes, I would find it reasonable for a high-end restaurant in Dubai to do the same, especially at a higher price point.
We had an fabulous evening with an amazing meal and lots of treats in between courses. Overall a totally special experience
We travel extensively and frequent top restaurants and "Social" is right up there as one of the best we have ever been to.
Fabulous food, presentation, pace, atmosphere and service all coming together to provide us with a very memorial dining experience.
We were celebrating our mum's 70th birthday and had the most wonderful evening . Food was absolutely fantastic as were surroundings .
Staff were so attentive and polite...would definitely return !
The staff there is amazing. We even got to meet the chef, Francisco (sp?). I would definitely take my wife there, again. I think it's an ideal place for a special occasion.
We had the pleasure to have dinner there during our holiday in Dubai (it was the 27th of December). In our opinion, Social actually is the best Italian restaurant in Dubai. It's an amazing dining experience throught Italian traditional plates, which are revisited in an unique combination of tastes. The maitre has accompanied us during the whole dinner and he has chosen a long selection of wines. He kindly explained us plates and tastes! At the end, the 2nd Chef meet us for a long discussion of their work. Without any doubt, it has been the best dining experience of our lives!
We really recommend it!
I can only recommend Social to everyone who’s visiting Dubai. The setting is perfect for a romantic dinner, the food is great, the wines with the tasting menu are extraordinary and the service level is beyond perfect - my fiancee had her birthday when we were there and the nice surprises received from the restaurant were really appreciated, everyone made sure we had an evening to remember!
Best place in Dubai, a real find and currently under used by locals and travellers
Best food wine and Service in Dubai
This place has set the highest standard
We had the 7 course menu with wine. Outstanding food a service, a genuinely special meal and occasion.
Fantastic experience - the food was incredible and great service with really knowledgeable staff. Absolutely loved it!
My wife was sick from the tuna starter in the hotel toilets. We had the set menu with wine pairing. The wine was not of high quality and definitely not worth 1100 dirhams per person. Won’t be back
So far the best restaurant in Dubai! I fully recommend dining there.
Best restaurant I experienced in Dubai. Same quality of service of a Michelin star in Europe
Lovely fine dining, thanks to Maitre Luca and the chef for their ospitality and profesionalism.
