My wife have been here 5 times and each time has been more spectacular than the last. No matter how busy, the professionalism, friendliness, service, & quality of product never suffer.

I had the fried tomatoes and crab nachos. The tomatoes were great but the nachos just okay. I was thinking "blue crab" but I think it was imitation crab as they use in sushi. They were not very tasty. Our server was hearing impaired and was excellent.

With the closing of Jolie's, and Marcello's not offering much in the way of gluten free that my wife's health requires, we were hoping to supplement our regular trips to Pamplona and Bon Temps when we are in Lafayette. Social exceeded our hopes and expectations in every aspect: first, it is a very sleek, attractive, and comfortable space; second, the... More

Mouth watering, delicious, well cooked food with southern touch. A bit noisy when really crowded on a Friday night, but definitely worth the trip. The smoked fried chicken is unique and delicious. Fries are fresh, home cut..

The menu is diverse and daring, creative and classic. The food is well-prepared and served in generous portions by a consistently good wait staff. Craft cocktails are outstanding,... More

Had an awesome time here. It was the first time I had been here. There was no wait, seated right away and soon after was greeted by our server. The food selection was amazing and so tasteful. The service was outstanding from all staff

This place has great atmosphere! It was not what I thought for sure! The drinks were great as well as the appetizers. It was just a bit over priced. Worth it for a time to time treat!

I had a lovely dinner here with my relatives. We shared the appetizers including the chicken fried green tomatoes and kimchi frites along with the pork sliders. The smoke fried chicken and biscuits were delicious and my guess from the empty plates of my companions was the social bowl and flatbreads were also done well. The beautiful presentation of the...
