I went to Social Hollywood for a private event and was taken by the amazing service and ambiance. The food was great and the cocktails were to die for. I went back for dinner and received the same AMAZING service. Definitely check it out.

What a mess. I have never been to an establishment of this caliber and price tag with such terrible service. We went there to Valentines Day and waited 1:15 min after our reservation time. The cocktail waitress spilled our drinks on our lap. Several items on the menu were not available. After we complained the manager offered us some bottled water which we were billed for $40.00 to be exact. I felt so taken advantage of. This place is typical of your Hollywood shishi restaurant that has no concept of return clientele. They are in it for the short term and what ever they get you for is fine. Their attitude is like they could give a damn if you return. I think one star is generous.

Cons: Service was terrible

Citrus at Social failed its patrons on Valentine's Day for the following 5 reasons.
1. I placed a reservation two weeks ahead of time for 9pm. I was not seated until 10:20pm after being told at 8:50pm it would only be a few moments
2. A glass fell in the foyer at 9:15pm. It was not cleaned up for 30 minutes. And by cleaned up I mean kicked under the table.
3. Items on the prix fixe menu were unavailable. How do you run out of things on a prix fixe menu.
4. After being sat an hour and twenty minutes late, It took another 30 minutes to even see a speck of food.
5. No consolation was offered for our extended wait

Please do not let this happen to you. Avoid this place until they get new managers or at least some courteous ones.

I have been to Social Hollywood three times, so this review comes from an average of experiences, not just one bad night - this "club" is one of the most BORING places in Los Angeles! There is a bar downstairs which is usually empty so there is no point in going down there unless you need to use the restroom (which has a long line, anyway), and the upstairs part of the venue is lame! There is ONE room to dance in, and it's the smallest of the three rooms upstairs. The other two rooms just have couches and chairs and a pool table - don't ask me what a pool table is doing in a place like this. But regardless, I am always bored within an hour of arriving at SH, and I always end up leaving to go next door to Boulevard 3 - an actual good club!

Pros: Good location

I went to Citrus Social with a party of 11 for a 30th birthday dinner/party this weekend. Upon entering the restaurant, our party was directed to the "bistro bar" where they had two dinner tables set up for us. Initially, we were confused about our placement but didn't want to give the restaurant too hard of a time. As dinner progressed, people started trickling in and the music was turned up (blasting!). At this point, we felt like we were eating dinner in the middle of a club. After dinner, we were asked to move over to the actual restaurant area (where we shouldve been placed initially) for dessert in order to clear the area for other patrons who were there for the bar. My friends were upset about the entire experience and decided to talk to the manager to complain about the situation. Upon making reservations, we were not informed that our party was not going to be placed in the actual restaurant. The manager and event coordinator were not apologetic or remorseful for the awful experience. They didnt acknowledge that they had dissatisfied customers or that it was for a special event. My friends and I are not strangers to fine dining or the overall LA scene. We have NEVER witnessed such rude customer service by a restaurant, let alone one where you just spent close to $1000.00 on dinner. I must say that the overall ambiance of the place is nice/elegant...but the manager's arrogance, attitude, and dismissive behavior will definitely prevent me from ever stepping foot in that place again. AND...on top of it all, the food wasn't good at all. The waitress ranted and raved about their fries/frites, but trust me -- you can get the same thing at Fatburger. You are not missing out. If you want to be treated without respect, go to this restaurant.

I love going to this club on a Friday, well for one its looks great when you walk inside. This great venue has a hot and many rooms all set up to be social so you can actually talk if you are tired of dancing. I promote Friday & Saturday nights at Social as well as many other Hollywood clubs, email me for guest list with "Guest List" in the subject line and your phone number for contact in the body. My email is M_Zdar@hotmail com. If your on my guest list you will have no problems getting in the door and if you contact me ahead, i can come outside and get you depending on who you are. This is a venue I would highly recommend.

Pros: Many rooms, set up like a mansion, great look, social vibe.

Cons: Hard to get in if your not on a guest list. Dance floor can get packed.

This club is a great venue with a upscale crowd. I enjoy Friday nights the most because of the crowd that this venue has and the amazing girl to guy ratio.

I just do NOT understand chefs who put their name on a million restaurants all over the country and cook in NONE of them. I would rather enjoy cuisine from a Real Chef who owns and operates One kitchen.... Needless to say, Citrus is yet another restaurant that uses the name of an absent chef. Yes, Micheal Richard designed ther menu, but he is in D.C. He stayed to train this staff to prepare his food, and then skipped town (just like Wolfgang Puck, Mario Battali, Kerry Simon, etc.).
I digress. To Citrus: the space and the staff are lovely. We were seated immediately at a comfortable and large table (for a party of 2). We had some great cocktails (I had the Blueberry lemonade, my date had a martini), and then started with the Onion tart. It came without share plates and was a little droopy in the middle (not great for ladies wearing expensive dresses?), but was otherwise palatable. The Shortribs were good, the Lobster Burger was TOTALLY overpowered by the bread, but once I removed it, the lobster and accompanying garnishes were tasty. Dessert was the highlight of the whole experience; the kitkat chocolate dessert is whimsical and tasty, and the creme brulee was a good execution of a classic. all in all, though, the food was like a higher-end version of Chili's. Every "trendy" LA spot has shortribs, some kind of burger, french fries, etc. They are not reinventing the wheel here at Citrus.

All in all, it was just unmemorable and overpriced. I will never go back, unless someone else is footing the bill. the food is good, but unimaginative and OVERpriced.

The food is average here. There is nothing spectacular or exceptional about the meal. The staff is friendly as they should be but I found myself constantly having to ask for things like another bottle of water or another cocktail or a fork. The was ok nothing special. The bullsh@t reviews that management posts get annoying though. It is not a bad spot but nothing great. If you want an average meal before going out in Hollywood then the restaurant makes sense.

Oh No...I find myself venturing to Hollywood for a meal! What? Leave NYC to come to L.A. and then not even pass Spago or Bastide before slogging my way down to Hollywood? Yea I have lost my mind! So after doing battle with a Valet attendant who obsconded with my car and $10 I entered Citrus, Wow, the room looks like it came from the 1920's with this great vaulted like cieling painted with what my dining companion said was original detail work. Yea Yea so beyond the good looking space we sunk into the menu. Our waitress was quick to reccomend a cocktail, We went right for the Champagne first and skiped the cocktails that all seemed to be a mash of fruit and simple syrup. Like clockwork, we were into some gougere that came out hot and moist in the center. Next up we had some smoked salmon served on a flatbread with onions, It too was good! Next we sank int some real food, Short ribs That the waitress said cooked for 72 hours? and a piece of Monkfish that was perfect in everyway. One of the managers/sommeliers paired some great wines with our food and offered us a vip spot upstairs for afterdinner drinks and...Killer food and Staff that makes you feel like the Old Hollywood Elite!!!

I visited Citrus at Social with a group of girlfriends this past Saturday and had a ball! The dining room transformed smoothly and beautifully from Moroccan to Hollywood glam/ secret garden with posh lime green chairs, vines covering the side wall and hanging globe lights! So much fun.

The dining experience as a whole was amazing. We had the mosaic (a beautifully presented plate of surf and turf carpaccio that was equally tasty) and cuttlefish carbonara (literally melts in your mouth... It's heaven) appetizers. I would definitely suggest ordering different menu items and sharing if you're dining with good friends. We dined on the lobster burger, arctic char and 72 hour short ribs (perfectly cooked and seasoned and the fries are to die for!!!!) and duck, duck orange (like I said, such a fun menu!). Everything was cooked to perfection and our server was so attentive and helpful- he gave us the best recommendations and was very knowlegeable about the menu and the ingredients as one of my girlfriends is on a crazy diet. We were amazed at how healthy some of the food can be made and our server informed us that much of the food is local and organic.

The BEST part of our experience was dessert (and not kidding, we tried every one). My favorite is the vacherin and the kit kat bar!

At the end of the evening we all agreed that Citrus is one of the best new restaurants in LA... It's hard to find a good restaurant with great food, service and a fun environment but we found one. We might even do girls night there again in a couple of weeks!

I went to Citrus at Social about a week ago and I seriously have never had a better restaurant experience. The wait staff was superb - very attentive but not pushy, the food was exquisite - flavorful and rich but light and satisfying, and the decor was elegant and classy. My dining partner and I had the mosaic appetizer, which was so beautiful, and very light and tasty. We also had the cuttlefish carbonara and the goat cheese caesar salad, both of which were superb. For an entree, I had the colorado lamb entree and my partner had the Arctic Char - we licked our plates clean! Finally for dessert, we had the Kit Kat bar and the Vacherin, both of which were beautiful and delectable. The wine complimented our meals perfectly. Overall this experience was quite remarkable.

There was a group of us that went to Social at Citrus on Friday for dinner and then dancing at Social next door. The bartender Ryan was REALLY NICE and made great drinks at $16 a drink so I guess they should be great. Next we were seated at our table and we started asking about the menu which is way over there heads. We asked our waiter certain questions and as soon as we saw him getting annoyed we asked him what he liked on the menu and he replied "I would just like you to order". So next YOU GUESSED it the order comes out wrong. This little wimpy waiter dude, who thought he was just God's gift messes up the order. We talk to a manager who apoligize on his behalf and that was it.

We then go to the club next door and get escorted up to the VIP private room and the whole place is filled with low hoodrat type people. The girls where dress CHEAP and looked like all the clothes were from Forever 21 and the men looked like they spent there paycheck on the latest phone. JUST A DISGUSTING PLACE. We ended up leaving because it was such a low class crowd. We went over to Sky Bar and had a great time.

Social I would re-think who you are letting into this club and I would totally RETRAIN your staff. We ended up spending over $300 in your place and ended up having a horrible time. This place will be done in a few months!

On Tuesday night my girlfriend and I met another couple at the new restaurant at Social called "Citrus" and what a great experience!! We had been to the old restaurant and were hesistant to go, however I been hearing great things so i decided to give it another shot. First of all the room looks SOOOOO much better than before and much more alive. Anyway my gal and I were a bit early so we decided to get a drink at the bar. I was told by a friend to try a cocktail from their list so we both tried a couple and they were simply delicious. Mine was called the "Valentino" and was prepared with basil and white grapes,,,just awesome!! My girlfriend had some kind of blueberry lemonade that was quite refreshing as well. When the couple we were meeting arrived we all sat and thouroughly enjoyed the rest of our experience. Our server was very helpful and recommended a cuttlefish app. that was literally the best. We also agreed the all the entrees we tried were fantastic especially the short ribs and the chicken. Both were so juicy and flavorful. Whoever goes definitly needs to try the french fries, you'll know what I mean when you do. I usually don't leave room for desert but I was warned to because apparently Chef Richard started off as a pastry chef. Our table shared a few and all were terrific especially the one that looks like a mushroom. Overall it was just a fun fun experience. The service and the feel are way better than the old place. This space has an engaging yet intimate flow that when matched with the menu allows for a fun time. I'm recommending Citrus to everybody.

I'm not usually one to write reviews on restaurants, but I had to comment on our fabulous experience at Citrus! The service was fantastic! They were very attentive, without being over bearing, knowledgeable about the menu (everything they suggested was delicious...and the tater tots...you've never tasted anything like it !), and there wasn't a bad table in the house. We've been there 4 times and sat in different places and each time was absolutely wonderful! What more can you ask for...service, food, ambience...I highly highly highly recommend Citris if you're a foodie like us! And definitely save room for dessert...perfect way to end a perfect experience! The Kit Kat...to die for!

Had read little reviews about Citrus opening and Michel Richard's return to L.A. but hadn't found time to check it out until recently. Such a great time! The staff was very welcoming and there doesn't seem to be a bad table in the house. It was mid-week so thankfully there wasn't a line out the door and even though we were a couple minutes late for our reservation we were able to be seated immediately. The waitstaff and managers were wonderfully attentive, but not overbearing in the least. The specialty cocktails were delicious and the biggest problem we had was deciding what to eat because everything looked so good! The warm onion tart with smoked salmon was a great way to start while we decided on the rest of our meal. I ordered the crab appetizer because it sounded unlike anything I'd had before and although not a fan of roasted red peppers, I was pleasantly surprised by the flavors and texture. The short ribs were so flavorful and tender, I couldn't believe they had been cooked for 72 hours! We were given a suggestion on a wine to pair with our meal and although a little skeptical because it wasn't something we would normally order, we went with it and were definitely rewarded! The pairing was wonderful and complemented both of our meals. Even though we were so full, we couldn't go without at least trying a dessert! The kit kat bar was great and thankfully not too heavy! We really had a wonderful experience and are looking forward to the next chance we have to go back!

Pros: Food and service

Cons: Once people find out how great it is, I'm afraid it won't be so easy to get a reservation, even early in the week!!

My parents are visiting from the mid-west and I wanted to take somewhere very nice for dinner last night. I was a bit worried because my father can be difficult, but the service was more than helpful. They explained the food wonderfully and certainly delivered on their promises. The food was amazing, the atmosphere was refreshing and our waiter was very kind to my parents and me. My only wish is that my mother saw some celebs, but I guess it was early in the evening.
Anyway, I'm very grateful for an lovely night. I have never posted a review before, so I'm sure that says something.

My friend and I had a reservation Tuesday evening at Citrus. We were about half an hour late so we figured we might have to wait. As we enter the restaurant, it is empty except for a table of 4. Empty, this huge space with very bright lights on, the Chefs name written on every plate you see, chairs covered with mint colored shower curtain fabric. We are seated after we left our champagne at the door which we asked our server to bring. About 15 mins later (the bartender was busy text messaging) our server brought over the champagne ( a 1990 Ruinart), showed us the bottle, opened it, was not sure if he should pour mine first or not and didn't even let my friend have a taste. Mmm. We ordered the Lobster app and the crab app. The lobster concoction arrived in a "caviar" tin, that was on a plate with clear, glass stones all around it. The crab looked like a cheap open-faced sandwhich and the brioche it was served on was not good. My dish had Israeli couscous on the top cooked in squid ink but as soon as I stuck my fork into it, a flood of raw egg took over the entire dish. I took my time picking out the lobster pieces. Not attractive. Our entress were the monkfish and the duck. My fish came on a hot plate (they got that right), bottom right with a mountain of pine nuts cutting across the entire plate and a pile of under cooked asparagus in the top left corner. The duck was served with one breast sliced, another breast directly behind it whole, beet pieces underneath and some carrots and bok choy. The duck was way too chewy and not seasoned well, the monkfish tasted too strongly of cinnamon. Needless to say, the food here is amateur, the space beautiful but empty with cheap decorations distracting you from the potentially nice touches, valet $10, and the servers confused on who gets poured wine first. Don't waste your time or your money. My night was still good because my date was a blast and the 90 Ruinart...TO DIE FOR!!!

I've been twice. Both times were early dinners on a Sunday night. I make reservations for 6PM and arrived before the place was crowded. It was not noisy and the attention to detail in the meals and service was excellent. The only thing I didn't like the first time was a desert made out of meringue and rose essence. It was truly disgusting, but last time I was there, it was no longer on the menu. Wise decision. On the most recent trip, the food was better than anything I've had in a long time. Certainly better than the disappointing outing to Patina the same month.

The meal i had at Social shortly after it opened late last year was among the best I've had in L.A. Returning last week i could barely believe it was the same restaurant. The original and stunning mole, for example, was now worse than anything out of a can with a sickly sweet cloying flavor. The fish, as one reviewer exclaimed, was oily and rubbery. And so it went, dish after dish of nearly inedible food, left me embarassed that I had brought friends to this restaurant. Clearly, the original chef is long gone and they have yet to replace him/her with anyone who can prepare a meal worthy of the stunning interior. The prices are high, making this terrible food all the more disgraceful. Shame on Social for not closing until they can find someone who can cook. Obviously, I was the last to know about its decline, since the dining room was empty, except for a few hapless tourists.

I went to a private party at Social this past weekend and I have to agree with the other reviews- THE FOOD IS TERRIBLE. I tried three different salads, and had the pan roasted salmon as my entree, along with sides of green beans and olive mashed potatoes. The only edible thing was the pumpkin salad- everything else was terrible. Seriously, how do you mess up salmon? It was slimy, oily, and simply too disgusting to eat. The green beans were okay, but extremely greasy. Even my drink was bad- I ordered a mojto and it came with green globs falling down the outside of the glass. I had to send it back. The second one was a little better. The girl across from me got a beautiful mojito on her first try, so maybe there are two bartenders and I was just unlucky.
I have to say that the service was very nice. We were a very large party, but everything came out at the same time, and the servers were very nice and attentive. The space itself is beautiful, and the bathrooms are so fancy I saw a group of girls posing for pictures! It was strange how empty the place was.
All in all, if you don't care about food, or you are one of those LA types who won't eat anyway, then Social is great place. Otherwise, avoid it until they can get their kitchen up to par with their atmosphere. And whatever you do- DON'T order the salmon!!!

Above average. The space is really cool, high ceilings with morrocan type architecture and screens spearating tables the dining area. The place feels old and historic in a good way. The bar area has also got cool decor with entire glass cabinets of chinese vases lining the entrance to the bar. The service was also very good, the staff is uber attentive.

Unfortunately the food is really bad. We ordered scallops and arugula pumpkin salad as appetizers and tuna as a main course. All of them were well below average for the caliber of restaurant social is trying to be. The scallops were kind of tough instead of soft and buttery, the salad was ok and the tuna was similar to what I've had at like cheesecake factory -not even as good.

I would skip dinner here. Just go for drinks at the bar instead and peek your head into the dining room to check out the decor since that's the most interesting part!

This is a gorgeous restaurant. They can almost get away with mediocre food. The food really pales by comparison to the space. Even the hummus was weak. The staff is friendly and attentive. They need to work on the cuisine.

the server was excellent, great service but abit lack of knowledge on wine/menus.
the decoration of the restaurant is very well, very trendy, but they should've pay more attention on
the chairs & couch customers sitting on which are not easy to sit & not comfortable to have a whole 2 hour dinner on those seats. the last thing is that the portion of the dishes are "extremely" petite. good for ladies but not for hungry men..

This place is a waste let me tell you. I went on a Saturday night and the crowd was old geezers with their botox faced blonde bimbo wives....Pretty much all I saw was white people. Not a place for hip, young people. The food was absolutely horrible....My bf got the filet(medium) and I got the chicken and both were incredibly dry and tasteless.
The smoke alarm went off for a good 20 minutes non-stop, very annoying. The service was horrible...we kept flagging down our little waitress. The only good thing was the side of mashed potatoes and the pumpkin seed salad. Don't go on the weekends...try it on a wednesday or thursday.
If you want awesome food and a hip place try Koi or Bella.

Ok, so social looks like a beautiful place...and it is. I recently went with my girlfriend and was amazed how classy it looked. We then started with apetizers of Konk, crab cake, and lobster bisque. The konk looked beautiful but tasted overdone and like buttery rubber (and I've had good konk before), The crabcake looked beautiful but all I tasted was nutmeg and the bisque had not one piece of lobster in it and was far to rich to eat. Our entrees came out ...and looked beautiful Lobster rissoto, and the filet. The Filet tasted as if it were burnt and drenched in butter and was far overcooked for being ordered medium, and it was served with a side of butter drenched potatos. The lobster rissoto also tasted if it were drenched in butter...and the lobster was such a small portion and was cold on the inside. we also had a side of beans which was such a small portion for the price. All in all everything was small for the price and unfortunatly it seems as with many places in LA its all about the looks not only with the building but the food to . The chef seemed to be mediocre and obviously more concerned with the looks of the food than the taste, because we left unsatisfied with everything but the looks.

Went to social the other night and I'll admit, this place is very, very pretty. Looks like they (whoever owns/opened it) spent a lot of money on the place. The food was even pretty good down in the restaurant. Still, this place has a lot of drawbacks. Firstly, its massive....and unless you're there on a night when its filled to the brim (I've never seen one lately), it looks embarassingly empty. This, in turn, screws up the vibe of this lounge/restaurant/club in Hollywood. Second, for being less-than-packed, this place was fairly pricey with little apparent justification. Maybe they figure that if they have less people coming in the door, they need to charge each one more, to compensate? I dont know. The servers were good/knowledgeable at the restaurant, but the door men/bouncers were really rude to my fem friend who accompanied me.

Cons: Hard, uncomfortable wooden chairs; SUPER noisy room lacking any intimacy whatsoever; tiny portions of seemingly inventive yet Marie Callender's-quality food; overpriced by 1/3. Two people: one glass of wine each, Voss water flowing, two modestly priced ($28) entrees, and a baked alaska for $105, before tip. A bit too much 'who's been here lately' info on the front end of the meal... maybe thrilling for tourists, but a snore for locals.

If you must, go during the week, when it's not mayhem.

We were really excited to try Jeffrey Chodorow's latest LA offering, having dined at many of his other establishments in LA, NY and Vegas. What a disappointment. After having been seated late, we were stuck in a corner with THE MOST uncomfortable chairs. There were other 4 tops available, but the hostess rudely said, "Those are reserved." A few minutes later, a group of cows from what looked like a tourist bus comes in and gets one of the reserved tables (with more comfortable looking chairs!). She asked if I'd like to be moved to another corner, but I refused. The server at first was sweet, but then she became less friendly and amateurish. About the food, first of all, they offered no specials -- only what was on their menu. You'd think that having been open since May, they might mix it up a bit. The food is very gamey, saucey and glazey. If you want Moroccan-type food, you'd be better off at a proper Moroccan restaurant. We had lobster risotto, lobster bisque, short ribs, and some forgettable appetizer. Dinner was pricey, and unless they get their act together, this restaurant will certainly close within the year.

The decor certainly is cool. The food? not so much. The scallop appetizer was totally sandy - if I am spending $20 for two little scallops, I expect them to be marvelous. The truffle polenta was pretty good, but everything else was unmemorable. Have drinks at the bar, but don't waste your time or money on the food.

This is not your usual hollywood eatery. From the moment you walk in the host treats you like an old friend. Ultra friendly waiters and management. The food is simply divine.

We went out on a Fri night w/reservations. Unfortunately, we were late due to LA traffic, but they accomodated us immediately. There was only one time I had conch and it was in Florida, key west. Anybody who's in Florida should know how popular conch is. This is the only place that I've ever seen this dish on the menu and I have to be honest, better than Florida! Melts in your mouth! My husband was unsure at trying it at first, but then he ate the rest of the plate! I ordered the butterfish tangine...what an awesome dish. Big portion and great taste. My husband ordered the lamb which was also very well prepared, although a little small for him...nonetheless, very flavorful. The service was impeccable. It seemed as though all the servers in the restaurant came to our table to make sure we were okay. Very highly recommended and we will be back!

In the morning you will have enjoyed your evening so much you won't care that you can now not afford that new Dolce and Gabbana coat you have been eyeing ..

I was delighted when I called and was able to make reservations for Sat. night at Social as I had recently read positive reviews about it in the LA Magazine. Our reservations were for 9:30, upon arrival the host informed us that they are running late and we should be seated withing 30 min. In the meantime he offered us to go to their bar. We ordered two drinks, my votka soda was the weakest I've had in town and my wife's "Social Mojito" was good it cost $14 or $15. After 30 min of hanging out at the bar I as informed by the host that our table was not ready and that he did not know how long it would take for us to be seated. We opted to order some apetizers at the bar which were very tasty.

An hour and a half after our 9:30 reservation we were finally seated for dinner. The food is definitely above average and the decor of the space is amazing but the management of the restaurant is evidently poor from the host to the waiters who are running around like chickens with their heads cut off.

Dinner bill including drinks, appetisers, 2 entres and a $9 bottle of water came to $140.

I was delighted when I called and was able to make reservations for Sat. night at Social as I had recently read positive reviews about it in the LA Magazine. Our reservations were for 9:30, upon arrival the host informed us that they are running late and we should be seated withing 30 min. In the meantime he offered us to go to their bar. We ordered two drinks, my votka soda was the weakest I've had in town and my wife's "Social Mojito" was good it cost $14 or $15. After 30 min of hanging out at the bar I as informed by the host that our table was not ready and that he did not know how long it would take for us to be seated.

Pros: Food & Decor

Cons: Poor service and long wait for a table while having a reservation

My chickie and I went to Social not expecting much based on it's neighborhood, but man were we surprissed and impressed. It was like walking onto a high budget movie set where you soon forget where you are. All of the rooms take on their own identity and give you a good feeling of comfort and relaxation. The food and staff are equally good with the price tag being a bit lofty, but we are in LA, California, not Baton Rouge, LA - so it is well worth it. A few celebs were in the house which excited my better half, but the paparazzi were not - so they must have some agreement because these were A listers. Did I mention the service... they are very attentive and thorough - almost too much, but I'll take it. The rest of the crowd was: "cool" and wasn't short on cash because the wine and champagne was flowing on the tables like water in the Desert. The surrounding tables were fun, not stuffy. It seemed like those who were there this night wanted to have a good time - they brought their good attitude... I guess they followed the name on the door - they were being Social.

Pros: Great rooms and service

Cons: Neighborhood

This place is awesome... just what Hollywood needs. If you run around with a fun bunch, bring them to Social: The food is awesome and worth the price. The building is something you don't find in cities any longer - it's very unique - mixing the original architecture with updated structures. It's like eating in an updated museum turned restaurant, bar, hot spot. The crowd was a great mix of hot males and females in various dress all enjoying the food and music. Ambiance - yes, they have it. The drinks and wine were great and got our group in the right frame of mind. Yeah, there is alot of service, but would you rather have too little service? I applaud them for over-staffing... you are treated like royalty and it's a good feeling - if you are ok with being treated like a king or queen. You pay for valet, but hello, it's LA... Overall, a great joint!

Cons: Parking in LA is a drag!

This place just feels right when you walk in the door.
The food is great, the look of the place is awesome and the music is just right!
After we had dinner (the crabcakes were soooo good) we walked across the hall to the bar to continue the night.
The one thing didn't measure up were the desserts! I'm sure in time, those will be great too.

I'm so surprised by the handful of negative reviews. I've been twice, and both times, everything was perfect! I am obsessed with their cocktail menu, and their tuna tartar (which I think you can only get in the bar) is amazing. I had the Pimm's Cup, and it is SOOOO good. In the restaurant, I had the butterfish, which was excellent. The service could not have been better. And, my friends & I actually think that the prices are low for what you get. The portions are not your typical tiny Hollywood portions. Oh! And you have to have the macaroni & cheese....I could go on and on. And, the waiters and waitresses are hot - and nice. I highly recommend Social.

I have been to Social Hollywood 6 times since it opened and have been able to see how after each visit the place is maturing and taking a personality of its own. The decor is really great and the service and food, could not be better. Love the Lobster Bisque en Croute, the Beet salad with Blue Cheese Espuma, the Short Ribs can't get any better and the Butterfish Tagine is a is fantastic. The staff is so eager to please, i don't understand some of the previous reviews. Also, if you have an issue with ingredients, such a Foie Gras, don't knock the place down because they serve something that you don't like ( I read a review from a Vegetarian). I love Foie Gras and the two versions served as appetizers are highly recommended.

Pros: Service, ambiance/decor, food

Cons: none that I can think of

Yes the waiters, and you get lots' of them are attentive, to a degree that it gets annoying.
The place takes itself so serious that it becomes almost comical. The food was average, which for those kind of prices is unacceptable. Vegetarians don't go there you will starve.
They also serve Foix Gras (Duck Liver Pate) which is really SO OVER, and if you really want to be a cool new restaurant you don't serve these kind of cruel foods. There are plenty other ways of being decadent. I might check out their Bar, won't be back for the restaurant.

Pros: it's big

Cons: it's not worth it

Our waiter was extremely attentive and the restaurant had a nice ambience, however those are the only good things I can say about Social. I ordered wine by the glass and they would refill the same wine glass that I still had wine left in and then only fill it to the mid-way point and charge me for a full glass. The $44 filet was not a good cut of meat. The stuffed chicken was better, but not great. The Socially Decadent chocolate cake was terrible -- we barely ate it. The valet is $8 which I didn't mind paying, but it's still ridiculous. Try and get a street spot if you can.

Pros: Attentive Waiters, Full Bar

Cons: Subpar food, under-poured drinks, overpriced for the value

After reading the other reviews I was really excited to try Social! Sadly, this place was a disappointment on all fronts. There were several different people coming to our table but they couldn't get anything right! It was a comedy of errors. We sat w/o drinks (no water either) for a good 15 minutes. Then 2 cocktails came and we had to wait another 5 minutes for the third- did not make for a good toast! The food- although explained in painfully exquisite detail- was very average. Skip the flavorless crab cake and the mediocre bisque. Hooray for the beet salad! The decor had its good points, but is a very strange blend of things you find in Morocco and things you find at a low end Contemporary furniture store. Thats all I have to say about that.

This place is terrible - the sense of entitlement before they've even proven anything is truly unbelievable. The managers go out of their way to be as unaccomodating as possible, taking the attitude that it's their "club" and service should be as they deem it appropriate instead of catering to the wishes of the clientelle. The food is average and the cocktails are $15 a piece. The bar is awesome and the decor is amazing - definitely a cool place to hang, but seriously, to have this kind of attitude in a place that hasn't even proven themselves to be any good is absurd.
