    I tried the steak and eggs. I didn’t like it at all. Got a skillet to go and it was amazing. Stick to the skillet

    Unfortunately my reservation for a high top to celebrate birthday turned into a table outside - on a 90 degree day, with no fans. My dinner for 7 turned into a couple drinks and appetizers - when that warm and dressed for celebration, no one in the mood to sit for a dinner. At minimum, suggest confirming if inside or out - especially if in the summer and patio not cooled - very uncomfortable and ruined the evening.

    Two of the main courses we ordered, from a very limited menu, were unavailable. The food took 25 minutes to arrive (no bread was offered) and then the soup and entre were served at the same time, and the soup came without a spoon - server had to go back for one. Coffee was served without cream - waitress had to go back for it. No way I'm coming back!

    Mediocre food with very lousy service. Waitress was very passive aggressive. Food took nearly an hour to come out (and they still messed up my order).

    Orders came out wrong multiple times and wait for food was an hour and fifteen minutes. We were patient, but it was a rough morning at Social. Won’t be back anytime soon, but eventually I’ll have to enjoy my chicken and waffles.

    The food here is amazing. The only time I wasn’t blown away was when I made a build-your-own salad and got a little carried away. I kept that in mind at brunch for the build-your-own skillet and it turned out fantastic. Four people at our table got them and they all turned out different and excellent. Everything off menu is wonderful and the atmosphere is clean and chic.

    I’ve frequented Social probably a dozen times in my life but last night it just felt like it had gone downhill. They immediately told us they had “no salads”, nor one of the pizzas, and no espresso for espresso martinis. Our drinks took a really long time to arrive and when the food came, in particular the hamburger, there was no side whatsoever. Not even a spattering of potato chips. What a bummer, it used to be one of my favorites!

    Outrageously overpriced for just a couple beers, wine, and some burgers. I can’t believe I paid $11 a beer for a pint. They didn’t have what I wanted and that was $8 which is crazy. He suggested an alternative which I chose but didn’t tell me it would be $11.

    This is my second time here, and it’s still good. The waitress was super nice. They were in the middle of a rush when we got there so things were taking a bit longer than usual and she had many tables, but she was sure to keep us updated and apologized for things that really weren’t her fault. The food and drinks were great, I tried all different things from last time and they were still very good. My only gripes with the visit were really just that the cookies were a bit stale, you could tell they’d kinda just been sitting under a heat lamp for a while. Also, they not only removed the BYO salad option, but their convection oven as well, so the things I initially wanted when I arrived were no longer available. The items we ended up ordering instead however were still amazing, I’d definitely recommend their Spinach dip.

    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.
