This is my first time to be at the Social Restaurant. It is a cozy place. The food is very tasteful, and all the guests with me liked the cuisine of the Social Restaurant.
Steak was excellent cooked exactly as requested. Lovely upmarket restaurant with attentive service
Awesome food, great service, nice ambiance. Definitely will be back.
The location is perfect. The ambience lovely. The food was spectacular. Even though all of these things were stellar, our favourite part of the evening was our server. He was attentive, funny and served in a very heartfelt way. You could tell he loved where he worked.
appetizers were excellent and the service was great.
I LOVE this restaurant. I have been many times and can always count on amazing food & service. Our server, Ben, was top notch! He was very attentive and friendly with incredible menu and wine knowledge. I highly recommend. We enjoyed the steak frites and duck confit. Cheers!
This restaurant is the perfect place for casual dinner and drinks with friends. Their weekend brunch is amazing.
Our server was a wealth of information and helped us choose the perfect dish. She also suggested fun cocktails to compliment our meals.
We didn’t feel rushed and were checked on an appropriate amount of times.
I’ll definitely go back.
Great restaurant for out of towners. Food delicious and well presented
Everything else was great, but I was surprised that the maitre d' or wait staff did not check the vaccination receipts and ID. When we asked if they were going to check after we sat down, the wait staff said they believed that we are vaccinated and did not ask to see them. This made me feel slightly unsafe dining inside.
Simple food, value a touch off. Drinks were not that great. Nothing special.
A great night out, food was amazing, great atmosphere and our server was knowledgeable and engaging.
Always loved Social and so grateful to be able to enjoy again. Thanks for the amazing service and lovely ambience.
Always a great date night!
The duck confit is highly recommended! The portion was just enough though maybe it would be nice to have more spätzle!
Our brunch was unexpectedly incredible! Just as enjoyable as a fancy dinner out on a Saturday night! I will definitely be returning for brunch at Social!
Definitely a must try if you want to have a nice dinner with the better half. Will not be disappointed at all. Is on the higher price point for a meal's put a definite special treat. Service was good, wait time for food was good and chill atmosphere. Recommend!
Absolutely amazing!! Our server couldn’t have been more knowledgeable and welcoming would go back a hundred times over the food was exceptional we had nothing left on our plates!
The meal started with a vodka cocktail for my date, who said it was prepared perfectly. As for the main course, I had the pork tenderloin and my date had the steak-frites. Both were excellent, tender, and juicy, and the fries were also cooked perfectly. We ordered a bottle of Australian Shiraz (Kingston Estates Clare Valley 2019) and it was excellent.
The service was quite good in general. I deducted 1 star because our server’s shift apparently ended before we finished the meal, and it took several attempts before being presented with the bill and settling up.
It was an expensive evening, but the quality was commensurate with the price.
Loved our dinner at social. Great cocktails, amazing service and truly delicious food!
We were after drinks and apps and Social Lounge did not disappoint. The "Sussex Lounge" area at the front of the restaurant has been reduced to just one set of couches and a few dining tables chairs (before it was a number of different vignettes), but we were lucky to be able to snag the one setup of couches.
The couches were comfortable, the drinks and oysters delicious, and the service was attentive and quick. Drinks also came out super fast.
Absolutely loved the vibe. Would absolutely go back.
Great food, nice ambience and friendly service but there was some confusion with our table leading to a number of mishaps.
Friendly and warm service, great food :) definitely recommend
Les huitres étaient fraiches, et excellentes
Entrées bettraves succulente, entrée de pieuvre pannée, bonne mais trop panné a mon gout. Les repas principaux, canard, porc et saumon ont tous été très appréciés. Merci au SOCIAL, pour ce bon souper. 5 sept 2021
Appealing ambiance and thoughtful service. We enjoyed the pork tenderloin and steak frites, along with squash fritters - creative recipe and very tasty.
Excellent food, beautiful patio. Kitchen was slow but the food isworth the wait.
My sister and I had a great time here on the night before my wedding! The food is incredible, I relaxed the moment I stepped in the door, and the cocktails were delicious. Our servers were patient and very helpful. Though definitely more on the expensive side, this place is 100% worth the money we paid. This is one of the places in Ottawa that I highly recommend everyone goes at least once. Thank you Social for the great experience!
Waited pretty long, but thats probably just due to lack of staff. Pretty expensive food but the drinks were great!
It's fair enough but not very good I think need better staff
Went for an anniversary date night and we were not disappointed! The duck confit was amazing and each cocktail was better than the next.
Ambience was great, absolutely beautiful restaurant! Service was a little on the slower side, and the selection of vegetarian dishes is unfortunately limited. Nonetheless, would recommend and return!
The service started very late. We waited 30-40 minutes to get asked our orders, after we told them twice that we were ready to order. Once the service started, however, it was good. Ambience inside is very nice.
I loved it so much. It is a friendly place to go.
Great snacks and cocktails, friendly and efficient service, lovely patio, lots of space.
Very hood good. Lovely to sit in a restaurant snd be able to talk without shouting. Lovely patio as we!l
Went to celebrate my husband’s birthday. The Food was delish, especially the duck. They offered us complimentary bubbles/dessert as we were celebrating a bday, which we didn’t expect at all since this was never offered elsewhere, such a nice touch!
Despite rain we were quickly re-seated and went on to a delightful evening with excellent food and service
The steak tartare was excellent and everything accompanied with it was delicious! Will definitely go again and recommend it friends.
Overall I was quite impressed. The courtyard patio was stunning and the service was great. I had the Duck Confit which was good but slightly overcooked. I would recommend it.
Lovely ladies night out. Patio was great. Our server, Melissa, I believe, was lovely. Have dined inside and out and enjoyed both experiences.
Went to the restaurant for our 35th wedding anniversary. Wine bottles are pricy at $60 or more. Ordered a $60 they didn't have it so they suggested one at $79 or another at $98 : (. Cheese board was excellent and steaks good as well.
