This place is pitched a a charming bistro. The place is nice but the food is sometimes uneatable. If you go there,stick with drinks.

This place was so much fun! We're big fans of Cafe Noir which is a minute away but we needed another place to go one night in Tel Aviv. I'd heard great things about Social Club and we were really happy we made it there this trip. The staff was super nice and had great advice. Definitely ask them which wine to have. The restaurant was full of locals who all sat around the bar so we had an outer perimeter table. The food was delicious. We had Duck Confit and a chicken dish but the locals seemed to be eating a lot of pasta.
The waiter was just great. He told us to take our wine outside to have a smoke.
I think the price was in the middle but as a New Yorker nothing seems too expensive.

Definitely try this place out.

This is a popular restaurant and I was worried there would be no tables. Plenty of seating. Was able to step out with my wine glass several times to sit at tables outside. Great food (pasta, meat, chicken, duck) and wine selection. Portions were controlled and everything was delicious. Had a nice waiter and felt taken care of and not rushed. Would come back!

We asked to be seated at the bar, and it was indeed a good choice. Bartender treated us with chasers and the service was friendly and fast. All of their cocktails look good, but don't miss the Ginger Cosmopolitan: a very different and yummy version of the popular drink.
