Nice food and service. However it could have been a little more professional, and a little more considerate of our special occasion.
Loved the pesto pasta dish with a French Syrah red wine. And a carlsberg as an app
Belle soirée du nouvel an. Tout était parfait! Merci au DJ qui a su donner de l’ambiance à cette soirée!
The food is simply amazing!! Can’t wait to return.
We had an awesome experience and we will surely go back in the next years
Very nice meal, delicious food and wonderful service. Would definitely go again.
Food is very well prepared, but menu is uninspired. The pasta special was plain
The seared scallops were incredible! And the service was fantastic. Recommend!
Food was fantastic..loved the pork belly and scallops. Tried each dessert awesome. Service was great.
Modern, upscale ambiance. The staff are all very nice. The menu is pretty great, LOTS of drink options ranging from expensive wine to classic cocktails. This was my second visit to Social and it is now on my list of favourite dining experiences.
Loved the space, the service and the food 👌 will definitely come back.
Lovely setting and great food
One of the best meals we have had in quite some time! Excellent food as well as a friendly, attentionate service.
The staff were awesome. The vibes and music were great. The food tasted delicious however the quantity could be much better for the price we are asked to pay.
Beautiful ambiance, delicious food and wonderful service, can’t rave about it more !
Dinner and service was excellent. But felt cool and drafty at times, making it less comfortable.
good food, great service
thank you for an excellent service, well-timed and friendly
Overall it was pretty good, although my dish was not. They did comp it which was pretty nice. The host was fantastic… she was so friendly. Would I go back? Um, probably not.
Best dining experience in Ottawa hands down! The service was impeccable and the food was phenomenal. My new fave restaurant!
Had a really nice dinner. We shared a chef’s board of cheese and cured meats, it was amazing. Especially the Grey Owl cheese. Then my husband had steak and fries, the meat was cooked to perfection and was delicious. I had the duck and it was also amazing. The wine recommendation was perfect. All in all, we had an amazing dinner experience!
Food and service were both fantastic, will definitely be back!
Service was excellent. Friendly and on top of everything. Ordered the salmon that came with risotto. Risotto was sticky and tasted like it was leftovers not a fresh batch. It was also room temperature while the salmon was made well crispy on the outside and tender inside. Disappointed overall but gave 3 stars for the service and salmon.
Great evening out and absolutely delicious meal. Beautiful presentation.
The service and food were fantastic! We absolutely loved our experience - thank you!
Amazing place, and the pasta of the day was incredible. Ombieance and decor was very upscale and beautiful. Service was top notch. Very professional and friendly and made the entire evening that much better. Will definitely come back again.
We had brunch, but it was not good. The french toast was very sweet. The egg benedict english muffin was little bit burn. Despite of ambience of the restaurant, the brunch menus were quite disappointing. The service was good, and the place was very clean. However, I'm not sure that I would want to go to Social for Brunch next time.
I ordered the salmon, it was ok but nothing great.
The bar was very loud. As was the table next to mine.
Great atmosphere, perfect for dinner with girlfriends. The charcuterie platter was generous and delicious, as was each of our mains. Would def go back!
Great place for a business lunch or a place to catch up with a friend!
Overall good and I will return and recommend it.
The server should not walk away when she ask how is everything. When the server ask a question she should make eye contact and wait at the table for the answer.
It is good hospitality, it is good service and it is good manners.
After many months of not being able to dine out, returning to Social was a delightful experience.
Brittany was our server and was so pleasant and informative. The food was excellent and the service quick and discreet. A very nice experience overall, especially for my colleague from out of town. Well done! Can’t wait to come back.
It would have been better if there was a vegetable served with my prime rib, not just a piece of meat with kale on top. The prime rib was good, but missing a compliment on the plate.
The waiter was amazing. Made awesome drinks for us and very personable. ☺️
Social was exactly what I had hoped for to celebrate a special occasion. The drinks and wine were excellent and reasonable, food was delicious and creative and service was attentive and excellent. A perfect evening!
Great atmosphere, creative menu and excellent service. Wonderful evening out.
A neighbourhood favourite of mine. The duck and steak dishes never disappoint. Great cocktail menu.
Globalement correct. Nourriture de tous les jours. Le service était bien et la cuisine efficace. Expérience globale appréciée.
Excellent service and great food! We will return soon
Quickly seated and looked after. Happily recommended food and beverage selections. Warm and welcoming atmosphere in dark and stylish surroundings. Pampered by our server (Mel) and visited graciously by our maître’d. The food was delicious and memorable and a good value. So happy we chose to visit Social for our night out in Ottawa.
