Please change the menu to what it used to be. The food is great but the current menu isn't as good as it was say 2 years ago. The pork belly dish was amazing then as was the steak and the starter prawn dish. Haven't...been back for quite some time as a result of these changes. ☹More

Hi there, not quite sure what time you’re referring to as all of these dishes are currently on our menu?

Our favourite meal on the Gold Coast was from Social Eating House at Broadbeach. Everything we ordered was delicious, and our 3yr old devoured her meat, roast potatoes and veggies without a fuss. The desserts were also delicious but a bit simple. Overall we had...an enjoyable meal and will definitely return.More

This was a birthday lunch and we shared the lamb shoulder. Absolutely mouth-wateringly delicious. Service was very professional. Staff are knowledgeable and friendly. A hidden little gem that’s certainly worth a visit.

After reading numerous reviews and recommendations from a variety of sources I decided this was the place I wanted to book. It was the perfect place to visit for us to share dishes that tickled our fancy. We enjoyed some juicy plump scallops that were...perfectly cooked and shared a large plate of the lamb shoulder. The meat was beautifully tender, falling apart when shredded by the waiter after the 12 hour slow cook. We enjoyed a couple of bottles of wine and was pleasantly surprised to see some SA wines included. Could not fault the food, service and atmosphere. The surprise complimentary dessert with Happy Birthday was the perfect end to our meal.More

We had a fantastic meal with our family at Social. The Barramundi in a curry sauce was excellent. It had a crispy skin and beautiful soft flesh with a nice Asian sauce. This was followed by the Wangu steak which melted in your mouth. Possibility...the best steak I have ever had. As usual great service and good selection of wines. This place consistently delivers. You need to try.More

If you appreciate well executed, superbly presented, innovative and high quality fresh ingredients, this must go on your dining "bucket list" in the Gold Coast. The charred sugar loaf cabbage with a miso and macadamia nut puree, was a pleasant surprise for my 'inner' vegan....The Mooloolabah prawns were so gently cooked the flavour was not quite but close to that of a lobster. Quail wrapped in a crepe akin to Peking duck style was sensational. The Yuzu and ginger beer mocktail was exactly what was needed at our lunch considering the festive season's night before consumption. Just when you thought all surprises were revealed, accompanying the Briliat Savon and Manchego cheeses was a whipped truffle butter for the thin round of freshly baked baguette. Do youself a favour and book ahead. It was 8 days before there was an available table.More

We had dinner with a group of friends and we haven’t had service like we did at social for a long time. The food is next level, all the dishes are mouth watering and so well presented. Our waitress was Ellise and she had our...wine and water glasses consistently topped up, she knew her dishes and made our experience so enjoyable Well done Team SocialMore

The restaurant cancelled our 2 month old Christmas booking on Christmas Eve. Unbelievable! I had heard the restaurant was overpriced and the food ordinary but we don’t have many alternatives a day before Christmas. Really poor form from the restaurant....
