We were there for the Delicious Dates event and were really pleased with our meal. We were greeted promptly when we arrived and our table was waiting for us. We will be back for sure.

Most of the meal was amazing (as usual) but the fried potato patty (don't recall the name of it) was bland. This will not deter us from returning as we LOVE The Social!!

This place was soooo loud!!! For saying there is limited seating and a quaint space, the noise was almost unbearable at times. We had a reservation for 2, and were put at the end of the bar (after being told there would be a large group coming in, utilizing the tables) it was on ok spot, cozy, but we were finished our drinks, meal and left the restaurant and still didn’t see anyone at either table. Would have maybe made for a much nicer dinner conversation and acceptable noise level had we been able to sit at a table. The service, beer selection and food were outstanding, just a shame that because we were only 2, we didn’t warrant being able to sit at a table.

Food and service was excellent. The venue is small and quaint. Great place for social gathering yet maybe not the ideal place for a date, as the noise level is quite high.

We had hear about the restaurant but in the end found it under-whelming. There was also a glass of wine that was off.

Wine options are priced too high for area and vintage.
Food is always fabulous.

The noise level was way over the top and we couldn’t hear each other. I had the chicken sandwich and it was full of fat and grizzle. I did like the fries but won’t be back

Have really enjoyed the Social in the past. This time was a huge disappointment. Burger undercooked, bun toasted till it crumbled. Service not very friendly and having reserved we got the worst table in the place. Will not be back.

The Social was a complete and pleasant surprise. It is very small but has great beer and wine lists for a restaurant this size. The menu is limited but our salads were delicious. My companions had a burger and a brisket sandwich and polished them off in record time. My steak was good but not exceptional. I would do the burger next time. Staff are pleasant and service was excellent.

The dishes were tasty but both the soup and the Hot Pot were far too sweet. Those dishes are meant to be savoury so let the subtle flavours of the wonderful ingredients be allowed to be detected by the palate

Food was excellent. Servers were amazing. The only negative was the noise level but that’s okay.

We went for lunch with another couple. Mussels and trout were out of stock, which was a shame because they cook them perfectly. The shrimp and noodle salad was terrific, as was the wine! The chicken sandwiches were unfortunately overcooked and the fees were too. Service was excellent. Certainly will go again. Make a reservation, they are really quite busy, which is also a good sign

Can't wait to go back. It was our anniversary and they treated us to champagne. We were too full for dessert. Had the buttermilk chicken and it was delicious.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at the Social. We ate indoors as one of our invites isn’t with Good without outside temperatures. The inside noise level was perfect as allowed a table of 5 to talk comfortably.

Absolutely worth the drive! It's cozy and comfortable. Staff were absolutely amazing! Very attentive, friendly and welcoming. This was out first time here and they made us feel like we were regulars.
My compliments to the chef as well as the food was flavourful and rustic. You could really taste the care, passion and attention to detail in every bite.
Will definitely be returning here soon!
