Social 242 Lounge & Grill
I went there on a Saturday evening, it was very nice, it was also not to busy which was great, the staff were great and the food was amazing!!
Great location, food, service, reasonable prices. Everything is icing on the cake.
Always amazing service. Food was great. Drinks were amazing
Disappointing visit this time. Wings were very salty, salad was just thrown together, salmon was very dry. Had to ask for cutlery, glass was sticky, no selection of NA beer. Tried 2 chairs with really loose legs.
We were sat down on time, but then server disappeared for over 20 mins. Then we watched as the server sat another big group, chatted for a while with what appeared to be her guy friends in the back, and then went and took food and drink orders from the big group. During all this, some of the floor and bar staff seemed to notice what was happening, but none of them actually came to check on us or anything. There were maybe a half dozen tables sat in the whole place and multiple servers, so its not like the server was actually too busy. We gave up and walked out, thankfully had a great experience at a different place. The whole vibe was very much that they just couldn’t be bothered.
Food was great, the service was great. (Thanks, Spicy Ty!). A large mid-20's birthday crowd came in and were seated across from us so it was very loud and boisterous. However, Ty was very good at handling us and them.
The food was well above expectations.
Our meal was absolutely wonderful. The Caesar salad came with house made croutons that were crispy but not hard. Made in their own kitchen not from a box! Such a pleasant surprise. The salmon was very nicely cooked, not overcooked, and was surrounded by no less than 12 beautiful vegetables all cooked to perfection. We will definitely be back now that we've found this wonderful restaurant.
To be wished a happy anniversary by 2 separate employees and receive a complimentary glass of champagne was very unexpected and appreciated. The food and service were top notch. We will absolutely revisit Social 242!
Sadly, we had a bad experience and never got to eating there. We ordered what was supposed to be a double vodka martini, but was so small and def not a double. Had to leave as this spoiled our experience right from the get go.
Amazing place, amazing food and drinks and great atmosphere! Highly recommended!
I’ve been coming to this restaurant for about 3 years now and not once have I been disappointed. The food is amazing, and the portions are very large, I usually end up splitting an entree. Even though we go at 5 to avoid a larger crowd and loud music, I still find the music is much too loud at that time that sometimes we have a hard time having a conversation. That is the only setback for me, but I will continue to dine here.
The most flavorable 3 course meal I had in a very long time. The best bruchetta, baked salmon accompained with 6 different vegetables on a bed of spinach absolutely outstanding. Turtle cheese cake was the perfect finishing touch. I will definitely be coming back!
Awesome server. Food was slow to come out but was in no hurry.
Food was very good, and portions were decent (I even took part of my meal home). Our server was very young, but did a great job looking after us.
The ribs were remarkably tender and delicious. They were very aware that to be Celiac safe, no cross-contamination of gluten is permitted, and they delivered an amazing meal that I didn't react to at all. Will return here for sure.
Chicken wings were so small, they weren't worth it.
we were seated for 10 minutes
no servers approached or acknowledged us, they looked the other way as they walked by us, so we left
Always great food and service.. Starters Brochette, Bacon wrapped Prawns Main, Peach sauced ribs, dessert Turtle cheese cake. They always have a nice variety of vegetables,and love the roasted potato's .
Visited from Vancouver. Friendly staff. Loud on Friday night. Great food
Was an amazing night. The music got a little loud by the time we left though. I think we might have been crossing over into 'night club' time as we went from comfortable conversation to having to yell over the music. The food was EPIC and so was the service .. will definitely return!
An excellent place to go to. Great atmosphere great stuff overall super impressed.
4out of 5 meals were less than satisfactory .
Would not go back
The social goes above and beyond with their vegan options! Amazing!
A bit pricy for portion size ! Great service !
Food was absolutley amazimg, best mussels we've ever had. The service was great the girls are friendly knowledgeable and accommodating.. we sat on the patio is tiny and it was situated right out front on the street so you felt a bit exposed but the seating is so cozy & comfortable it makes up for it. OVERALL EXPERIENCE 9/10
We chose the three course menu option and were very pleased with the food quality and quantity. Our food was fresh, piping hot and tasty. Our server Jessica was polite, informative and very attentive to any of our wants. Great job Jessica and Social! We will be back.
Seems our service was really slow the last couple times we were at the venue.
We were not in any hurry at all so it did not matter to us at all, but it was noted that it took longer than usual to come out.
Anyways, not a big deal, was great food and drinks held us down good :)
Excellent food and service. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Excellent drinks
Nice outdoor area and our salad was really good. Our waitress was so kind and split our salad for us as we were not very hungry. Could have done with a little quieter music.
Awesome music and vibe at this place! Will definitely go back next time in in Kelowna
My Okanagan Chicken choice for dinner was a definite win, but my wife’s fish tacos were definitely a bust. The music was pretty loud and choppy on speaker when sitting out on patio. Our server was great, very friendly and attentive. Patio was small but cute and there was a great area for locking up our bikes. Overall not a bad place, but will continue to look for our new Kelowna gem.
Daughter is severely allergic to gluten and they took such care to ensure she didn’t have any chance of getting sick! Thank you!
Great food but got a little loud for conversation after 9 when there is a DJ.
We eat at Social 242 on a fairly regular basis, and have always enjoyed our meals.
The service is 3 stars (or less) because: They had no record of my Open Table reservation and sat us in a dark back room by the kitchen by ourselves when there was seating out front. When I make a reservation I expect to be sitting at a desirable table. We were only a party of 3, so it wasn't the number of people that was a problem.
Waitress- was lovely and attentive and turned up the lights so we could see our menus :)
Food - Fabulous and huge portions! I loved how the accompanying variety of vegetables were plentiful and cooked to perfection. We did the 3 course menu for $35 and it was really worth it. It was also wing night. 8-10 tasty wings for $4. Poor beer selection.
High quality meal for good value. I always make a point to eat here when visiting Kelowna,
Sometimes more than once. I love this restaurant!
If you are looking for great food, this is it. However, the place needs some renos. Rather than everyday dining restaurant, it does look more like a run-down cowboy bar.
The 3 course dinner was amazing! Incredible food and drinks at great prices. $5 drink specials and $30 for an appetizer, main course & dessert. Wow - we were so impressed with our anniversary meal there. Would highly recommend!
Always great food and service, we had the Bruschetta and Bacon wrapped Prawns for appies, Peach BBQ Ribs and Peanut Butter Cheese Cake for dessert. They always have such a great variety of veggies. Their house salad is also very good. Great daily specials and special menu's. We have never been disappointed.
The food was amazing but the restaurant was loud overall. A fun place to be with a group or friends but not a date or a place to hear the other person well.
