    I booked a reservation for my birthday dinner to celebrate with my party of 10. I have visited before many times and have had wonderful experiences in small groups. The service I had this past dinner was unprofessional and lacked any sort of organization. Drink orders took over 45 minutes after being placed, water was never offered within the first 30 minutes, and finally when asked, it somehow took over 20 minutes to bring out the bottles of still/sparkling water. The food orders came out incorrect, and in addition were served to the wrong guest over and over. Certain items were comped due to the disorganization, but the monetary savings doesn’t fix the poor experience. I will no longer be recommending this restaurant and I was embarrassed to host my party here.

    Incredibly slow service which affects the overall experience. There is too much emphasis on the music and not enough on quality of service.

    Hosted by husband's milestone birthday at Ristorante Sociale and our party of 14 people had an absolute blast! We did a set menu which was so easy - a ton of dishes to sample and so great not to have to worry about managing an order for such a large group - everyone was raving about the food. The service was very good, we weren't rushed or bothered at all, and we stayed later in the evening drinking and dancing. Great choice if you are looking for a more fun, festive atmosphere for a group!

    Overall a good experience. I appreciate that they sat us at a more private section, which I didn't even specify. So that right away made a great impression. The staff was super friendly. The entertainment was fun. Very much a King West vibe. The only thing was the special that the server convinced us to order wasn't much of anything to write home about. We ended up having to order more food because the special was way too small.

    Great time, just wish when it said entertainment starts at 8:30 it’s clearer about what that means, the more interactive entertainment doesn’t begin until closer to 9:30pm.

    I booked Valentines dinner here. What a great experience! Each lady was given a rose when they walked in. There was also an entertainer performing various dances, and handing out additional roses throughout the evening. The food was simply amazing. 5 stars!

    My first time and first experience was horrible. The pasta we ordered the cream tatsed too concentrated and was extremely thick. I make better pasta. Only their staffs were friendly and organized, more or less saying we should eat quickly and leave. I won't recommend dining here.

    I'm sorry to write this but it started when I wanted to order the Caesar salad & the waitress advised me not to because it's very salty & fishy! Then we wanted to order the lobster pasta and was told it was not available today. We ordered linguine with clams and octopus. The octopus was very nice. The linguine was so salty it was not edible and we turned it back. The waitress was very kind & took the pasta off our bill. It was Valentine Day, I had picked this restaurant so I was in the dog house! I'm not sure why things were so salty but it was a real disappointment!

    Our server Julian was tremendous and catered to everything we needed throughout the evening. The food was great, however some portions could have been a little bigger. Only note was that when I booked on OpenTable, I left a small request for the restaurant upon my arrival and it was never acknowledged, whether or not they could have accomodated the request or not.

    Honestly I wish I can say great things about this place. It was my girlfriends birthday we were a party of 6, they took 20 mins to even offer us water. I work in the industry so I understand that it was very busy, but my sister had to get up and get the servers attention. The server was great and very apologetic to the situation, we can tell that everything was out his control. The GM came by and gave us a round of Prosecco on the house to apologize for the wait but that did not help the long wait for EVERYTHING. We arrived at 8:30 and did not get our appetizers until 9:45, we had to cancel our mains and leave. Overall great food but the service is TRASH. I would recommend this place on a weekday when it’s not so busy

    Went on a Thursday evening and everything was great. The service by Julian was fast and friendly, food, water and drinks were served on time. Not to mention the food was excellent, it came out freshly cooked and hot. The gnocchi and truffle pasta are flavourful and the presentation is beautiful. The desserts were the star of the show in my opinion. We had the tiramisu and caramel tart. Although the restaurant wasn’t too busy we had a 10/10 experience with fast and attentive service, Thank you!

    Unfortunately this restaurant was one of the worst overall experiences we’ve had. This place came highly recommended from their sister restaurant at Enoteca Sociale. Some of us had the filet and it was great. The striploin was cooked well and tender but served in a pool of olive oil which was horrible. The Tuna cheviche was tasteless, half chicken came with pickled olives that did not go at all. The special tagliatelle with short rib was good but the pasta was more like rice noodles aside from fresh Italian pasta. Cesare salad was way too salty and fishy, espresso came cold. Staff was friendly and venue was nice however the price point and taste was way off for an Italian restaurant. It’s too bad as I really talked it up and my entire party and we left unsatisfied and disappointed, we could not wait to leave. I do not recommend this place at all, I will never return.

    What a fabulous experience. The food and service was exceptional but you need to enforce some sort of dress code. Your place is classy and waiters and waitresses are dressed professional Please don it allow ball caps to say the least while dining. It’s very disrespectful and not code in a fine dining restaurant. People with money dine and are dressed exceptionally well as for myself and date. Just a suggestion Thank you but over all it was fantastic.

    I was hoping for the same quality in food as the Enoteca restaurant. Not even close/disappointed. Guess that is why Sociale was 3/4 empty and Enoteca is almost imposable to get into because the food is awesome at Enoteca

    We came for drinks for my birthday and had the best time!! The hostess, bartender and waitress were so sweet and accommodating, and moved our table to a bigger one when another last minute guest joined. The DJ played amazing catchy music, vibe was incredible. For my birthday they brought out a personalized sign and a round of drinks on the house - so much fun!!! They also had dancers come out throughout the night. Truly an incredible vibe. My friends and I can’t wait to come back (but earlier and have dinner too!!!)
