Try the pizzas, grandmother ice lemon tea. It's the best! The rest is just as good. Favorite place to hangout!

It is not often that I am wow'd by a restaurant, but the Social House really does tick all the right boxes, particularly for dinner at night.
Its a big place, with lots and lots of wood. The colour scheme is a very relaxing brown with warm lighting. The various spaces have been aesthetically designed to have the feel of being in a big general store, with lots of cubbys and shelves on the walls, filled with "merchandise", and ladders up the walls as though a storekeeper is about to climb up and fetch something from a shelf.
Everything here has been designed with detail, right down to the quirky slogans on things, blackboard menus, even fake grass on the walls of the bar.
The food was a huge selection of western, European, and Asian fusion. Tapas, pizza, pasta, Indonesian, soups and salads, all were catered to.
For such a trendy restaurant, with reasonably expensive mains we expected the portions to be small and were really surprised at their size and generosity on the plate. Definitely don't go overboard on the ordering, as the meal sizes are substantial.
Their wine list is substantial, although pricey. The restaurant has a large wine shop onsite.
Our party all loved the dinner, and loved the atmosphere. We had been to Skye Bar (on the rooftop of the same building) for sunset drinks, and arrived at the restaurant without reservations, but only had to sit for 10 minutes in the bar area - which was attractive enough by itself.
I will very definitely be returning here next time I am in central Jakarta.

Like the cozy ambience, like the nachos, when we asked for more jalapenos, they gave more than we expected with no charge. the downside is I hate when people smoke and they didn't cover the smoking area so the smoke practically go around to non smoking area as well. I haven't tried more but overall it was nice first experience hanging out here.

You better book because this place is popular with the locals and expats. It's secret? a nice ambiance, good food, excellent wine list and a friendly and efficient service. What else to ask?

Best iced lemon tea and it is my favorite.
Too bad that sunday is difficult to get there because of the "car free" day.
