"They have very good food and a unique ambiance. But they seemed understaffed last Sat night when we visited. It seemed a little hectic when the staff running around. They got our orders wrong but otherwise the food was very good. The lighting seemed a little intense. If it's a romantic restaurant or even a social one it should be softer light that's more pleasing to the eye. These small source, focused, high wattage lamps over tables make faces in a party look terrible. This restaurant can easily be very good by investing in better lighting and staffing, at least on Sat Nights."

"This is probably one of the closest restaurants to the Boston Opera House and, being from out of town, that was why we picked it. The food, wine and service were good. The ribeye looked huge until I realized it was about 1/2 inch thick, which makes it nearly impossible to cook rare. Still, it was good."

"Unfortunately not enough wait staff. Upstairs dining room had one waitress who also bussed tables. Several falls (literally) resulting in broken marble and dropped mishaps. Waited forever for food and check had to be corrected several times. Previously did drinks and bar menu downstairs before theater and it was great. This time had dinner upstairs, 5 pm reservation and by 6:30 pm rushing to finally eat. Food was great, but service was awful and no apologies."

"We arrived at 5:45pm on a friday night - not many people there...we were sat upstairs, by ourselves, and our waitress forgot we were there. It also turns out they are a night club after 10pm, so they decided to fix their strobe lights when we were eating our main course. At 6:30pm. Food was decent, but the atmosphere seemed absurd for the upstairs dining area. We should have just sat downstairs - we would have had better service and attention. $200 later, we left feeling ignored."

"The service was slow from the get go, but after apologizing for taking 15min to even come to our table and give us menus -our server proceeded to continue with inattentive and slow service -my husband asked for anchovies with his salad-it came without -he tracked her down and reminded her and she said oh the kitchen forgot them? She said I will get them 20 min later and when salad was all eaten someone else brought them out. She never apologized or even acknowledged the error -our friend ordered a glass of wine that he wanted with his meal -as she cleared the salad plates he asked her to be sure to remember the wine -oh yes I will she said -meal came no wine asked again -no wine - he was 1/2 done with his meal when it finally came and again no apologies. Probably the worse service we have had -we barely made our show and we were at the restaurant 1hr 45min prior to show. Really a shame as the Food was Very Good . So convenient to Opera House -undecided if we will return. At one pt we let the Host know,that we were having issues and he simply said well it will be worth the wait - the food is very good. He never came back to ch ck on us the rest of he meal."

"Had dinner here with my husband before seeing a show at the Opera House. It is very convenient. The food was delicious. We shared a beet salad, I had a pasta entrée and my husband had chicken. All were well prepared and very nicely presented. The service was fast, although we had several people waiting on us (they seem to use a team approach)."

"The Food and ambiance was great..loved the owner or manager he was very personable. BUT I felt that the waitstaff didn't have enough training nothing worse than feeling rushed,especially when there isn't a crowd of people waiting to be seated."

"First time at 49 Social - brought my wife and two other friends for dinner before an 8:30 show. We arrived at 7:00 to a total madhouse: confusion about reservations, patrons running the reservation system and seating themselves, patrons who hadn't been served for 45 minutes, wrong orders being delivered to tables - just a disaster. And, it started off the same for us - the first in our party was seated but her drink didn't arrive for 25 minutes. When others arrived, the staff didn't know she was there and kept them waiting at the bar...
But, when we got ourselves together at our table and ordered, everything started to work: our drinks arrived (I really enjoyed a tart tequila, lemon, ginger and spice concoction), three of our salads came right out (the fourth followed 5 minutes later), our entrees rolled right out (I had an excellent, rich seafood medley over pasta in a sinful cheese sauce), wine came right out, and the check was prompt. The initial snafu seating us made us later leaving than we planned, but we were OK.
So, how lucky do you feel? Good food, good waitstaff, great location in Downtown Crossing. But, the potential to fall apart completely. Your decision...

"Dined here before heading to a show a the Boston Opera House. Decent wine list, we split a beet salad which was good and each got seafood entrees, which was very good. They validate parking for $11 at the Hyatt Garage, but of course I completely forgot about that. That's an extra bonus! Would definitely go again for a nice meal before a show."
