Interesting renovation and use of space but, I really miss the old CS. Enjoyed a date dinner in a packed house with gracious personal attention from the owner/chef. One dish was excellent and the other was not. Will try again.

The food is good. The location is great. Need to spend a few $$ and provide some TLC to the physical structure, carpet, and general upkeep. Great lunch and enjoy the menu offerings.

We have been to Cafe Society off and on for many years and have never had a bad meal. Like all restaurants, some meals are excellent but truly, none have been poor. We particularly enjoy going there on New Year's Eve and prefer the set...More

It is always a good thing when the owner greets you at the door. The menu varies each month but the beer is consistent and the wine list has a good selection. We have not had a bad dish. Although not over elegant, it is...More
