"The bottomless brunch cocktails are a great deal at $15. Though I only had two sparkling strawberry lemonades , it was a good value. The mushroom frittata comes bare - without and bread or potatoes but there are plenty of sides including the sautéed spinach which I ordered as an accompaniment. By the way the frittata is large enough for two to share."

"Unhealthy, deep fried foods, zero atmosphere, slow service. I don't understand how anybody can write anything positive about this place; unless you are looking for anything deep fried. The place has the atmosphere of a dining hall in a cheap ski resort. The server preferred to have a never ending conversation with one guest forcing the other tables to get up and find somebody else to help. Total disaster. Won't be going back. Ever."

"Food was great, the wild mushroom pizza was amazingly good. But the nachos, man were they DISAPOINTING..being nacho fans, we were not happy to get a pile of dry chips with barely any cheese and a scoop of salsa in the middle. The nachos need a serious upgrade! Beware!"

"I started with the spicy onion rings, and they were the best I've ever eaten - I need that recipe. I could not concentrate on reading the menu at all so I asked for a recommendation, and it was fabulous. I knew I needed salad but wanted something crispy with it and had the choice of chicken, shrimp and crab cake. Living out of the country I happily took the latter, it was a medium sized patty and perfectly seasoned. The salad was nice too, fresh mixed baby lettuces like arugula and spinach with romaine and perhaps iceberg to mellow it. My only regret was that I forgot to ask for the raspberry dressing on the side. It would have been much nicer in less concentrated doses. Our waiter was so nice, and after we had finished eating there was the most excellent band playing - Short Bus. Actually Short Bus was the reason we had come, - it was just an added bonus that the food was this good - truly a memorable evening."

"We had a wonderful dinner at Darien Social, but the standout was our server (I know it would help if I remembered her name.) She was very attentive while not pushy! Very helpful."

"Our server messed up every single dish. Food was good, but figuring out who had what and getting everything that we ordered was a pain in the neck."

"My wife and I are frequent diners (Open Table VIP's in several cities), and frequent the Darien Social as bar customers and frequently have large, big-ticket carryout orders. Today was the worst experience of our dining life. We have started to take our family to the Social for Sunday night dining (average ticket $200) and we were enjoying starters, a bottle of wine in an empty dining room (literally) when the manager felt the need to tell us that we could no longer watch ESPN ( my girls like college softball) because some new guests (presumably kids) needed our tv to watch Disney (without sound) on the outdoor patio...are you kidding? Anyways after being told that more management would come over to "fix" our situation we did not see the end of the game that we were watching nor did one person come over to provide an explanation nor did they "fix" the problem. After the channel change the service went down hill from there-no condiments, no drink refills and we were relegated to having the bus boy bring us the check; unreal, insulting. I usually only write to compliment places (speak only when you have something positive to say) I felt compelled, make that obligated to urge families to stay clear of this place....no customer service...let the smug management rely on someone other than you to pay their bills...they simply do not care about you! Go somewhere else!"
