We went out for the Wine and Dine. The roasted wild mushrooms were amazing! Would be great as a side with the delicious steak I had. Atmosphere good, service pretty good, friendly but busy. Yes we would go back.

“Best Food and Service”
Reviewed 25 December 2013

It was one of my nicest experiences at an restaurant. The server was very pleasant. The food was excellent. I had the salmon dinner cooked perfectly. My husband had the ribs and totally enjoyed it. We got there early at 5:00 and we didn't have to wait to long for the food. Good selection of wines lots of local wine. I would go back there again.

“Disappointing Experience”
Reviewed 7 December 2013

Went in for a friends birthday and was super disappointed. The server made no effort to engage with us, and never stuck around for more than a couple of seconds constantly leaving before we all had a chance to make the requests we had. It was a one-drink-at-a-time type service. Never once did she suggest an appy, drink, or dinner item.. if we didn't have an answer within the second she was gone like a shot, as if she was so busy with other tables (we were one of about 2-3 in the restaurant at about 8pm on a Friday night). Once dinner arrived (and half of us were without drinks) it was about half way through the meal before she did a quality check on our food, which was so sub-par. The protein was decently prepared, but the kitchen apparently didn't have the concept of making a good side, lumpy mashed potatoes, under-cooked veggies, and sticky gooey risotto. Not pleasant! After a complaint she did offer to rectify the situation by offering another side instead, but why replace one thing that isn't great with something else likely of the same quality... not to mention that none of the menu items were fairly priced compared to the competition restaurants (for the expected value). Never a visit from the manager, no wishes of a happy birthday, and basically a feeling like we were forgotten in the corner for the duration of our 3 hour visit.

I don't generally like to complain or bash a place, but this was unacceptable for a business who clearly wasn't busy and should be trying to ensure every customer experience is great to gain their return business, something they definitely missed the mark on!

“Excellent evening out”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

We took some friends there yesterday and were pleasantly surprised. The restaurant was formerly know as Christopher's Seafood . It has been extensively renovated. We had some Beef tenderloin carpaccio and scallops and prawns as appetizers and for entrées.Wild salmon on a cedar plank, 12 oz Rib eye, Pork back ribs and a beef tenderloin. The food was very well presented, hot and tasty. The quality of the beef was 100%. Tender, lightly marbled and properly aged.
The bottle of Trivento Malbec went very well with our meals.
For dessert we had a crème brulee , Irish coffee and cappuccino's. Our waitress Tara was very friendly and efficient, and made our evening out a pleasure.
We will be back to the Social 242 and can highly recommend it for a nice evening out.
