My husband and I are 'foodies' ~ this being said, the food at Sociale was bleh... First, we ordered the Heirloom Tomato Salad $13: the tomatoes were slightly overripe/mushy. Next, we had their special pasta dish, Papparedlle w/Braised Duck $21 (recommended by our server who said this dish is 'very popular with our patrons'). Our server told us that this... More

Really enjoyed this place. In an easy to get to area (* see below for added recommendation). First thing you notice is the pathway leading down a little side street. Has a European feel to it and immediately adds some ambiance. There is outdoor seating which is quite popular year round. They do have outdoor heaters. The inside is cozy... More

Here is what I like about Sociale: + It is a great place to lunch after going to the nearby Legion of Honor Museum. + Sociale is hidden off the street so you better know where you are going. + The food is good. + There is a patio (there are heaters so nice even on a cool day) and... More

My wife discovered this little gem some years ago. It was on one of our first trips to San Francisco after we spent part of our honeymoon in the Bay Area. Since that first visit (2006?), we have eaten at Sociale each time we return. We have never been disappointed. Well, she was a little disappointed this time because we... More

We had lunch today at Sociale. A haughty host did little to make us feel welcome. Okay decor, good service, music too loud (why do restaurants think they have to entertain!). The food was okay/good, nothing special. An extensive wine list, but so outrageously expensive we ordered beer. I'm sure there are better dining experiences in SF for the same,... More

Sociale is a neighborhood gem. Have been there 5-6 times before with my wife and always enjoyed it. Last night the food was particicularly good - three appetizers and the pappardelle + duck and cornish game hen were well prepared and expremely tasty too. Wine staff were also very helpful in guiding us to a delicious italian wine (Le Berne).

We met some good friends there for dinner. They had to explain that it was at the end of a short alley off the street, and not so obvious to find... but it was worth it. Quiet atmosphere, prompt/courteous service; ever-present but not intrusive. We were able to enjoy our meal without feeling rushed. The food was innovative and very... More

Outstanding flavors in everything the table ordered. Jim the wine guy was very helpful. Inside vibe was pedestrian. I would highly recommend, but opt for a table in the charming garden patio.

without coming off too dramatic...this was one of the best dining experiences i have ever had... We were referred to Sociale by a colleague who said it was a must-try restaurant in SF. We arrived, expecting it to be slightly pretentious - couldnt be farther from the truth. It was a cosy set up - quite chilled. could get away... More

I live in San Fran and really am ridiculously spoiled by the choices we have here of the most amazing restaurants in the world. So, when I say no need to take this with a grain of salt you can believe it! Went to Sociale last night with a friend and was not expecting much, but had probably one of... More
