    We had a great time on Friday night. The food was good, the servers were very attentive, and the ambience was great. The only disappointing thing were the desserts. They seemed overly sweet - but I do realize that's a personal preference for the most part. Great place to have dinner!

    Open table had glitched and they were overbooked. The way the staff bent over backwards to accommodate us was impressive and refreshing. Would go back in a heartbeat - but I would book directly and not through OpenTable .

    The restaurant had just opened and noon. They seemed very disorganized. Perhaps the staff needs to start their shift before the doors open. Server was friendly. Food was unremarkable. Coffee machine didn’t work. Atmosphere was cozy. It’s quite a small restaurant. Would be nice for a private party. Feels like a cafe rather than a restaurant. Just because it’s so small.

    Unfortunately, The Social was disappointing this visit. Food was not as good as it was. Hamburger was way overcooked! The cleanliness of the restaurant in general and the washroom specifically were not acceptable. Not as wonderful as a first visit years ago.

    Our dining experience started out well with a very friendly server but then as things got busier the service went down hill which we assume was the result of not enough staff. Our meals took a long time to arrive and when they did they were cold. I requested they be reheated but that made them to tough to eat. So unfortunately we paid alot of money for a below standard meal and poor service.

    Came in for a meal before going to the Capital Theatre. The charcuterie board we had, everything was good except the bread, that was stale. A birthday party came in (who knew someone behind the bar) from that moment on we were forgotten. Our pain meal came out and it was cold and the bread that came with our pasta was raw inside. We asked them to please warm up (we said just put in microwave because we didn’t want to wait for a whole new one), again maybe room temperature. Our waiter never came over, a young girl finally brought us water. For over 70 dollars, definitely not worth it. Will not recommend, first impression bad.

    The food at The Social is consistently of high quality and big flavour, enhanced by the fantastic selection of beverages and an engaged team. If you haven't tried it, the basil aioli is delicious, with the recipe posted right up on the wall in the inside dining area. Thanks again, Social team!

    We sat outside so take my ambience and noise rating with a large grain of salt. Inside seemed nice though and it was surprisingly quiet outside while we were there (Sunday, just after noon). Our server was very friendly, though when we did ask for more water it never came. A very minor nit-pick considering how great they were, unfortunately I didn't get their name.

    This is our second time at this restaurant. The first time was absolutely phenomenal. This time we liked the service and atmosphere but were a little disappointed with the food. It was obviously fresh, and cooked well, as all the food was very tender. However, the food was lacking in having very much flavour. A bit disappointing for the caliber of restaurant and how amazing it was the first time. Perhaps this was an off day, but it makes me not want to risk having another try for how much you are paying.

    The environment was friendly and relaxed and worth the drive. The food is gourmet quality with a reasonable price. Our server was professional and kind enough to make me a mocktail , not on the menu. I had the house special of mushroom stuffed ravioli with duck and the sauce was delicious, one only needed bread to get every last taste. My husband had the brisket with polenta, fork tender and taste in every bite. A definite must try for your dining experience. Who knows, could become your favourite spot like us!
