    Social has a cute ambience and food was good, but it’s so loud in there! It was really hard to have a conversation with the music so loud. Also, there was not much space between the tables so I could hear others’ conversation.

    Food was not great. Ordered the quesadilla, showed up and would have been great! Had fennel seeds all over them and on the inside. The menu does not mention this at all. Being allergic to them, this part was ruined. Ordered the kale salad and added chicken. The chicken was not done, partially raw. Wanted to order the doughnuts on the menu as dessert, they did not have them. The brownie dessert was the best part of the meal. I would not go back.

    Food was AWFUL . Chicken on salad was chewy and tasteless - and we got the blackened chicken. The veggies were so disappointing on the salads. Service was super slow - but in all fairness it was busy and we all know how post covid works. My main disappointment was the food.

    Though I appreciate the lentil accoutrement, the fish was considerably over cooked. Our wait staff changed mid meal, but it was not communicated to us. We weren’t offered another drink or any additional items. All in all, it seemed there were way too many tables for the waitstaff.

    Reservation for 7:45. Saw open seats at bar and asked if we could sit there. Immediately seated Bartender took 20 min to get us drinks. Only 10 people at the bar when we sat down. Restaurant had plenty of open tables. So it wasn’t real busy. Finally got our drinks and then when we tried to order food was told “I will take your order in a minute “. Never came back for the food order. Waited another 10 min and then I complained to manager. The manager was nice and comped our drinks and tried to address the problem But the experience was ruined by lack of service by the bartenders.

    Made the reservation because they were advertising the special drinks for patio opening. Signs everywhere advertising the specials. Tried to order the drinks and was told that they are only available on the patio but there is no food. Asked if I can go and buy the drinks and bring them down, we’re told no. Tried to order drinks and they were out of ghost pepper. Then I was told I CAN go upstairs and buy the drinks and bring them down. Ordered falafel for dinner, server came back and said they were out. Upstairs only one bartender working and 4 chatting. First I got charged $30 for 2 margaritas, then went to get 2 more and got charged $40 for the same drinks. Would have loved to speak to someone about all these issues, but managers just talking to hostess and bar staff, not customers.

    We had 6:30 PM reservations on a Saturday. We were told they were sold out of salads and an entree or two that we wanted. We have been to Social many times over the years. This was our worst experience at Social.

    Our server David was very nice and courteous. He definitely checked on us multiple times. He was very communicative and made sure that we had what we needed. I had a young child with me so he was very attentive to her needs as well. This was a great experience for us on a Saturday afternoon. Food was good, cocktails were delicious!

    We will not set foot at this place ever again! We reserved a high top and got a wiggly table. We were moved by our server to another table but then the manager came and told us that we can’t sit there, basically blaming us that we moved ourselves to this table. Eventually, they let us stay because they couldn’t fix the wiggly table. However, we felt that we are not welcome so we left and found a more welcoming place to eat. Very bad service!

    We love going to Social, love the ambiance and their dishes, unfortunately last night 05/04, I ordered the salmon and found a hair in it, they made me a new dish, but pretty disgusting to be in that situation! Other than that, no problems at all!

    Fun atmosphere. Great place for cocktails and appetizers. Husband had the cheeseburger (very good) and I had the brick chicken which was good but nothing special. I was excited for the truffle fries but was disappointed. They were solidly OK for $14. Huge serving if you have a lot of people to share. Overall, I would come back for cocktails but probably not dinner.

    This place was a dream come true. I felt like I was vacationing in Tulum, it gave off such bohemian vibes. I never felt so cozy eating out, the high top tables are like lounging bean bags. So of course after a bowl of their truffle fries and to die for turkey burger I was full and sleepy.
