Absolutely fantastic, sublime food, beautifully presented and exquisite flavours. Undeniably expensive but in my opinion worth every penny. Do not leave without having the duck tortellini. The staff were so friendly, knowledgeable and professional. The birthday dessert was a gorgeous extra touch.

The Estivo Tasting Menu was a taste explosion. The creativity in our savoury cake stand, the exceptional flavours in each dish on the menu was an explosion of taste. We will definitely return when next in Dubai

The woman at the door Iryna Simanko was the most unprofessional, rude and tactless person I have ever come across in Hospitality, anywhere in the world. She is bad for business...in fact she has the potential to ruin any business and should not be in Hospitality.

Thankfully, on the inside, the staff were so amazing...service, etiquette, attentiveness, you name it....they more than made up for what started out to be one of the worst evenings. The food was awesome...cannot complain about a thing!!! The food and service inside the restaurant really saved the day for us. We would certainly be back....just hope this woman has her day off on the day we decide to dine next at Social by Heinz Beck!

Thanks to all of you who made our evening, one to remember!!

I’ve said this time and time again in every forum and to anyone that will listen, in 7 years of living in Dubai and trying every new restaurant that opens its doors, the team at Social by Heinz Beck are the best in the Middle East.

The food is out of this world, the service is so far above middle eastern standards, the attention to detail is mind blowing

This is perhaps my 8th visit to the restaurant and every single one has been outstanding.

Was a last minute spot for date night; just a very pleasant place to be. Service a little clumbsy but lots of little highlights in addition to the food ordered.

We both had pasta (one trufffle one lobster), pasta freshly made and cooked properly - Some reasonably priced Gavi by the glass which turned in to 7 glasses ...

I think total GBP was just under £200 (we did share a salad starter) seemed about the right price for the location on the Palm, the restaurant quality, service and food. Would definitely go back. One of the less “flashy” places in Dubai where you can have a bit of peace. The opposite of cantina if you know it.

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 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!

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
