We had the new $39 lunch special. One main course and a glass of wine. The main was sirloin. Excellent. As fish and chips regulars we were very happy. I can recommend this for value!

Great place for lunch in the City. Knowledgeable service to help match wine with food. All four dishes were very good & the sardines were exceptional. Definitely will be back

Social is a very geographically friendly venue for me and has proven to be my 'go to' both Professionally and personally. Katie and her 'team' always make me feel so special and the great service and brilliant menu items make it a place to keep returning to. Nothing is ever too difficult!!

Happy new year Olga - so glad you had a great time with us last year, always a pleasure. So glad you have noticed our excellent group dining options - I have to say our feasting menu really hits the spot for group dining (menu available on our website) especially in our private dining room. Do let us know when you would like to come back in - cheers! Stuart Christie - Assistant Restaurant Manager

Probably made a bad choice of the food. Did not enjoy it as much as i have on previous visits. The pasta was served on a cold plate and though it tasted OK, it was barely warm.

A regular get together with an old friend. We both had the burger and chips. And a glass of red. Always worth a visit.

Visited Social at Verandah on 12 June. What a surprise! A very welcoming front of house manager. Didn't particularly like our table and my lunch guest asked to be moved. No problems - we were moved to a very nice booth. The service was friendly and informative. The food was good - very well presented and quite generous. I would definitely return to Social at Verandah. The staff really give this restaurant an extra applause. (A rare thing in Sydney where service is mostly lack lustre).

Pleasant service but sporadic rather than consistent. Waited a long time for first drinks. Food was good but not great and menu less extensive than the restaurant prior to the recent refurbishment. Several annoying errors on the final bill including drinks at a higher price than listed on the menu.

We both had the smoked lamb cutlets. They were delicious. We were treated to a complimentary beer to celebrate the hosts 1 year anniversary. A very nice touch. Thoroughly enjoyable as always.
