Restaurant is very attractive - the front entrance is nicely blocked and the hallway has a beaded silvery sparkling "curtain". The circular booths are very cozy, lighting is more than adequate to see what you are eating and the light fixtures are very pretty. Anthony, our waiter, was very nice and made us feel happy to be there. We had... More

We wanted to celebrate my Adult daughters birthday in a special way so we decided to try Private Social. We had been before when there was a different chef and decided it was a beautiful restaurant but not our type of food. We heard about the changes of chef and menus so we decided to give it a try on... More

Was here with a large business group- very different dinner. Very small menu selection- pricey. Bartender Rocco is very enthused about his profession- will concoct customized drinks for you. Portions are small but good. I would come here again but not on a regular basis.

I went here for cocktails with a friend and the mixologist Rocco is amazing. Great atmosphere and phenomenal drinks. Do yourself a favor and plan your next outing here.

My curiosity was piqued by the new executive chef here,so we booked a table for our pre-show dinner last night. From the gracious staff at the door, to our waiter Zach ,our intimate booth and the sophisticated ambiance made for avery nice evening,indeed. Reminiscent of Heston Blumenthal's approach to the sensory dining experience,a beautiful copper mug was brought to the... More

Dallas is no easy market and it will be interesting how the new chef Najat Kaanache adapts. I loved the presentation of the "Edible Dali" but I have to say the flavors were... just sweet with not a lot of anything interesting. On the other hand, the flavor of the salmon was good, but the presentation of it hanging on... More

If you are looking for a great night out, look no further. From our appetizers to desserts the food was outstanding and the service was excellent! We relied on the waiters advice on what to order and so glad that we did. If you enjoy a good cocktail, then Private Social is where you want to dine!

My wife and I dined here in November 2012 My wife and I had Private Social on our list for some time, we weren't fans of the tv show the chef was on, but had heard so many of our friends rave about it, we finally decided to get out of our normal routine (Taverna/Terilli's/Fearings/Nobu) and try something new.

We decided to take a short road trip from Houston just to check out Private Social since we've been big fans of Tiffany since Top Chef. We came here with high expectations, and I can say we were not at all disappointed. We started off with the Roasted Bone Marrow - it did lack some seasoning, but we were not... More

The seven course meal was beyond belief. The chef signed our menus as. A memento. Quite a treat! Our server Jessica was so attentive and the music by the Bret Vacquiero group was phenomenal. U
