“Amazing Winterlicious Experience”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

My boyfriend and I came here for the Winterlicious price fixe menu ($35 dinner), and we had an amazing time. The Winterlicious price is a steal - I'm not sure we'd come here otherwise (except for a very special occasion), as the regular menu is quite expensive.

The staff were friendly, attentive, and helpful. The food was absolutely amazing (best French Onion Soup I've ever had!) and the staff were highly accommodating of my gluten intolerance, even going so far as to put together a special dessert for me, as all the menu items contained gluten (including the mousse, which typically doesn't). We ended up ordering a bottle of wine, as most glasses were between $12 - $18, and a bottle of my favourite Gewürztraminer was $42.

“Feels like Paris”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

Had dinner last weekend @ La Societe with my family & "AGAIN" enjoyed myself...Actually have eaten here 5 times but all other times were for Lunch/Brunch. Chic decor...buzzing crowds..great service, wonderful food ( Dover Sole was brilliant as well as the Duck & Escargot) great wine selection. The also do a wonderful Brunch... in the summer they have a 2 level patio... It's one of my favorite neighbour hood restaurant's.. worth a visit..make a reservation & ask for a booth(if there is more than 2ppl in ur party)

“Very frrench”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Lunch for two at $100? Sound good to you? Yes, the food was fine, the wines were good, the service was quite attentive. If that price range is fine for you, then by all means....

“Authentic Atmosphere, Average Food, Poor Service”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Dined with friends in early January. The decor and ambiance is reminiscent of a cafe in Paris. This is where the positive experience ends. The menu is overpriced and quality of food lacking; the service neglectful if not absent. Our server downright moody and seemed irritated, despite our substantial l'addition.

In our experience, I'd pass. In the competitive Toronto resto market, you have many, many better choices at this price point.
