“It feels like it’s where it’s all happening ... I LOVE IT!” – so say the many fans of Jason Atherton’s Soho operation – who believe it “has it all… buzzing atmosphere, superb cuisine – food you really want to eat! – wondrous cocktail bar upstairs, and staff who buzz professionally too”. Its ratings were undercut this year, however, by a number of reporters who felt that “the food is good, but you do pay a lot for it”. Top Tip – “excellent set lunch deal”.
“Living up to its name” – Jason Atherton’s Soho ‘Social’ provides “one of the most enjoyable dining experiences” in town, with its “rare combination” of “exceptional value” dishes (“such modern, interesting yet ‘familiar’ food, focussed on flavour and pure pleasure”) delivered by “really attentive yet un-pushy staff” in “a casual and buzzy setting”.
Jason Atherton’s Soho three-year-old “hits all the right buttons” for most reporters, with its “proper comfort eating”, “hip” service and “lively (but not over-loud) atmosphere”. “The ‘Blind Pig’ bar upstairs is super cool for an aperitif too”.
“A favourite of the Atherton empire” for many reporters – this “trendy yet superb” Soho two-year-old offers “memorable” cuisine, plus “delightful” cocktails and wines; it has a “lovely loungey vibe” too (but can get “overwhelmingly loud”). Top Tip – “excellent value set lunch”.
Social Eating House Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Excellent value lunches, much more keenly priced than the very busy evenings. Good service, too."
"a real let down. Some of our party had minute portions and others had large dishes. We had to eat again afterwards! Service was efficient but did not deal with the issues re portion sizes and it was expensive!"
"Left wondering what all the hype is for. A tight and non-exceptional dining room that served dishes that lacked any wow factor."
