Went here for brunch one day and dinner another. Excellent food!!! The chef is amazing. They offer "bottomless brunch" $15 for bottomless mimosas and bloody Mary's. Incredible! Food is amazing and totally worth the trip. Cocktails are creative and delicious. Lots of beer on tap and a wide wine selection. Love this spot and will be back soon!

We met friends for dinner, at in the back room so we could actually hear one another - at 7 pm on a Friday we were among 1 of 2 tables; although the front of the restaurant was packed. The service was great but that's where the good ended. The menu was large and confusing, beers were listed in 4-5... More

Last week I met a friend at the restaurant. The bar was crowded because it was a private event and we sat down at a table. I ordered the Gyro and it was literally 5 pieces of thin sliced, dry beef with some salad on a gyro bun. Come on, even for Darien that's steep.

Went for drinks and had a great time sitting at the bar. They have great selection of premium tap beer, including IPAs such as Green Flash Soul Style, Dogfish Head 90 Minute and Goose Island. Tried their "Crispy Calamari" and it was very good. Great services by their friendly bartenders should be noted here too. Open until 1am, 2am on... More

Went for lunch with work colleagues. Sat outside. Service was slow and inefficient as there was no one there...shouldn't be any service issue....but really loved my salad. Ordered a roasted strawberry salad with goat cheese....loved it. Will go back and give it another try. Large restaurant...can't tell from the outside. Good place to go while you're arriving on the train... More

Good for casual dinner…. very personable service. Music was loud but they were gracious to turn it down when I asked so we could converse.

good bar food, strong drinks, happy vibe. Perfectly located for commuters for a pop on the way home from the train. Very pleasant staff and crowd. Have been for dinner a few times and for just drinks twice, and would definitely recommend.

Always enjoy visiting Darien Social. Great beer selection, perfect pub menu with some unique twists. We've been there when they have brought in local performers as well, and they have been great. Highly recommend.

My sister and I shared two dishes. The mushroom fritatta was offered with either ricotta or goat cheese. We opted for the goat cheese and... More
