A wonderful ambiance with great food quality and friendly service.
The starters were by far the most impressive dishes of our dinner - the firecracker chicken was amazing and the grilled haloumi was served with great theatrics. The main (400g steak) was good, however at $60 we probably expected great. The side dishes let the dining experience down - the broccoli was odd (served cold in a mayo style dressing) and the polenta chips were so so. The staff were very friendly and attentive and the ambience was amazing.
Best NZ food experience since starting out in Auckland 13 days ago and travelling across the north island. Food and drink were top quality following great service advice.
Always a wonderful experience at Social Kitchen. The food is exceptional and the staff are just perfect
We love Social Kitchen, but it was uncomfortably hot and airless on 27 Feb. made it difficult to stay for long
It’s the second time I’ve been to social kitchen and it was amazing again. The service was great the staff were friendly, the food came out quickly all hot and really tasty. The only thing near the end of our dinner as the building filled up it can get a bit loud with small space lots of people. But please don’t let that put you off it’s a really awesome place to eat will definitely be going back.
Fantastic and the staff were very knowledgeable on the menu
Awesome food - would definitely return next time in New Plymouth
Fabulous, friendly Proffessionals.
Special friends from America visiting us after 32 yrs.
They were so impressed with the restaurant.
Thanks so much
Great food and service. Love the vibe. Would come back again when in New Plymouth
Everything was lovely it expect it was quite stuffy in the restaurant.
We always have enjoyed SC. Adventurous menu and a great way to share with friends.
Amazing Food, Nice vibe! My favourite restaurant in Taranaki!
Haven't been for a while and love every bite. Great food at a great price.
We enjoyed our small plates and large plates at Social Kitchen. The staff were friendly and overall it was a great vibe.
Been here a few times and each time the same awesome service.. and the food is amazing.. highly recommend one of the best places to go in new Plymouth
Excellent fantastic food great service
We love dining at Social Kitchen, always a scrumptious meal and great time.
There was just two of us for a 6.30 pm reservation . All Social Kitchen wanted time do was rush us out the door. If you are only a couple check your seating prior - we were tacked on the end of a table of a big group in the corner - far from ideal. Seemed the they are more interested in big groups.
The staff were super lovely and the food was great!
A great night out! Entrees were served and were delicious as were the mains and my dessert. Wines were excellent too. Service was excellent.
a great night. Food was very good. Service same.
I was delighted with my black salt rimmed Margerita !
will continue to bring our guests here.
Having no white fish, despite the menu having 3 items needing it, is not acceptable for a top class restaurant. The day wasNew Years Eve.
The reason for no white fish was said to be that local fisherman were on holiday.
Given that knowledge on the part of the restaurant steps should have been taken to access fish from out of town.
That is what top restaurants would do.
I will be returning soon to the restaurant despite this bad experience in the hope it has the entire menu available
Social Kitchen is one of about three places I take friends from out of town for an amazing meal and a special occasion, and again it didn’t disappoint!! The food and service was outstanding as always, completely lifting the bar in beautiful dining.
Overall another good dining experience. Only two let downs were:
the portion size for the chicken pablano (the star of the show) but really - only two thighs as a sharing plate, and for $38?
the lime soda (which had the faintest touch of lime).
Otherwise a very enjoyable meal out...... the gnocchi was on form!
Absolutely love coming here for dinner everything is always exceptional
Fabulous atmosphere, great decor, excellent food, excellent service.
Next level service, great knowledge of the entire menu. 2 vegetarians and two gluten free and we managed to get something lovely for all of us. Service was also really quick with drinks orders.
Great food but talking a bit hard due to noise levels
Loved our Social Kitchen experience. Food was Fab, great service and loved being a part of the noisy, busy scene
Outstanding meal and night out on every level. We dined with family from out of town and they were completely impressed. For us it is one of the best restaurants in the country. Thank you Social Kitchen Team. You are truly great.
Best for larger groups who require little to no service. People who just want their items brought to the independent of any order. For example: cocktails ordered together arrive at different times. The energetic atmosphere and laissez-faire service are more reminiscent of a house party than a higher priced service environment.
Food was delicious, great variety on offer. Liked our corner table too
5 of us attended the Social Kitchen for a christmas staff lunch. It was perfect for the occassion. We shared all the dishes so this enhanced the inclusion of everyone in the conversation. We had one vegetarian and it was easy to cater for all with all the dishes.
fabulous place for a business lunch, great attentive service and amazing food and drink
We always have a great time at Social Kitchen. The food is consistently great and I love that they have seasonal variety. A great place to eat with new and old friends alike!
First time we had been to social kitchen and totally loved it
Very good service and food and wine were very good
First time at Social Kitchen so didn't know what to expect. The waitresses were very attentive, the food was delicious and was served up very quickly. We enjoyed our experience there.
Social Kitchen is not cheap but well worth going there. If you see this restaurant as "on special occasions" because of the price then I would suggest going with a group of close friends (6 is a great number) as then you get to try a variety of different dishes. My favourites are the firecracker chicken and the pork belly.
