Social Southern Table and Bar Ratings and Reviews
This is my favorite restaurant in Lafayette. The food has been consistently good. My favorites are the Bread and Spread, those sweet potato biscuits are fantastic, and the Smoke Fried Chicken. This is from a guy who isn't a biscuit or Fried Chicken fan. The flat bread are also great.
Great cocktails with some of the best bartenders in the city. Worth the price of a cocktail.
The food descriptions are misleading. Got a wedge. Expected a wedge of iceberg, got grilled romaine, expected bacon.. got deyhidrated pork belly. Turned into dust on crunch. Not pleasant . The chicken meal was delightful, cauliflower madras for a meat eater was the best. Chicken fried green tomatoes... hide them from me. Loud ambience. I would return, as the waitress was delightful, I regret not remembering her name
We were four people dining together. One of us ordered flank steak medium however the steak was undercooked. Another group ordered the filet medium rare and it was overcooked.rather than send the steaks back we just switched them. When the management became aware of what happened they were very gracious and comped a dessert for us. We are very happy with their service
I love social! Everything I've ordered has always been fresh and delicious. We love to order sweet potato biscuits, Brussels sprouts, and Mac and cheese to share! I also love their fried green tomatoes, pork belly sliders, flat breads, and salads. I almost never order an entree because we fill up on all the other goodies. One of my favorite spots!
First time guests, we were celebrating our anniversary and the whole night was perfect. Service was on point and the food was just right. We tried out multiple dishes one by one and enjoyed all of them especially the smoke fried chicken with honey and fried green tomatoes. Perfect atmosphere for a casual dressy date night or gno.
Great dinner out! My husband & I came here for dinner, tried some of the excellent cocktails, and enjoyed the dinner menu. I had the wahoo special as well as the social wedge, and he had brussel sprouts with one of the flatbreads. Chocolate cake for dessert topped off a fantastic dinner. We had exceptional service & will be back!
Excellent food in very creative ways! Started with the hamchi and the charcuterie board. Fish was prepared deliciously. The pimento cheese was great especially since that's not usually my favorite but the ghost honey was the star of the show - holy cow! The Orange Blossom on the happy hour menu was also a standout.
For entrees, our table had the shrimp and grits, the pulled pork and grits, the chicken plate and the steak. All were excellent choices but the grits topped any we've ever had anywhere - rich and creamy with whole corn mixed in, absolutely outstanding!
From Dallas, my guests and I were worried about our dining options in Lafayette on a recent sleepover. We found Social and it was an absolute gem. The menu, food options, drink menu and presentation were outstanding. The service and the wait staff (grooming) were perfect and orchestrated. Our eye and taste buds have been spoiled in Dallas by restaurants such as R&D, Hillstone, Ida Claire and Neighborhood Services, and this was on that level. When will you open a Social in Baton Rouge or Dallas?
Atmosphere was good, reservations timely, hostess friendly, food very good. Server was rushing us, even trying to clean off the table while we were still eating. Server also tried to box remaining food while we were holding our utensils and chewing. Basically the dinner and evening evening was ruined by the server, a real shame.
Our server seemed to want to rush us thru our meal which was totally inappropriate since it was a celebration. The fact is you should never be rushed in order to turn a table. The excellent dishes were brought out so quickly we barely had time to enjoy the deliciousness.
