“Just outstanding!!!”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

What an amazing time!!!
My best friend did her stag last week end there, the ambiance is vibrant and fun... The 8 of us sat on the cozy patio...
The team who run this place is incredibly amazing...
I work in this industry since my young age (my parents used to own some pubs and restaurants), I usually find something to say about food and service... but at Society, they over accomplished the guests experiences, the staff is fun, friendly, professional and not over your face trying to over sell you!!!

I watched the managers going from guests to guests; tables to tables, they took the time with the guests, they make everybody laugh and feel at home even it was very busy in and out...
They even took time to play with our bride to be and make her feel very special!!! Well done...

This week-end we are going to try 1 of the other Glowbal group restaurant... hope we will have fun!!!

“Super awesome fun time.”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

My friend and I just came in for a couple beers. The place was packed with beautiful women and the French manager treated us like royalty.
Couldn't be happier. We are still here drinking and don't plan to leave any time soon.

“Amazing night”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

We visited Society recently with our Stagette group and were blown away by our experience. I love the décor of Society, the pink chandelier are my favorite…
The drinks were great (a round of vodka blueberry-mango Mojitos) and the managers, Joel and frenchie, were super nice and the staff was great & interacted with us to be a part of the festivities…
All the food we got was very delicious! Especially the Mac & cheese and the beef ribs! So gooood!!!!
I would for sure come back again for the food and the service!!! What a fun night!!!
Check out Society if you haven’t been already… definitely a great time…

“Just Awful”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

It was such a shame, this place tried hard to be trendy, but they should focus on the quality of food. We went with a group of girls for a stagette, and most of the food was awful. 4 of us had very raw salmon and over cooked veggies, sent it back and the fish came out with an awful very strong fish smell, we couldn't eat it. Just couldn't stomach it. We were given gift certificates which came in handy since my $20 bottle of wine came with 18% gratuity AND 18% service charge?? Isn't that the same thing? Plus taxes. And the bathrooms were disgusting. I will never be going back there again that's for sure.

“Awful Service~!”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

I went in on Saturday night (January 5th) to join two of my girlfriends around 11pm for cocktails & appies. I went upstairs to the Lounge where they had been sitting for an hour or so, glasses empty and still waiting for a waitress. I myself waited for 20 minutes without service or a second glance before finally going to the bar myself for a menu. Brought the menu to the table, waited another 10 minutes before just deciding to go to the bar.
The bar was crowded and the bartender wouldnt even acknowledge me.

The three of us are all industry servers and bartenders, and we were so utterly offended by the service saturday night. It was obvious that either the servers arent pulling their weight, or theyre severely under-staffed! I didnt even bother getting a drink after 35 minutes of trying, and my friends waited so long for the bill that finally we asked the manager/door man (I dont know what he was, but he was huge!) to get it for us! Oh, and the cocktail list is severly lacking: the drinks are made with cheap ingredients and over priced.

In the end, we left and went somewhere better..where we could actually order a drink!! Theres so much competition in yaletown that theres no reason to waste your time at a place like this!
