Great waiter and host in the front. Really good service and food.
My order salmon benedicte was quite cold and the muffins seemed tough and difficult to cut too they may have been stale. I was very disappointed. The waffle was better but a little undercooked.
Other than that service was good and atmosphere was great
Make no mistake this is a beautiful restaurant but the service and follow thru didn't match the lux decor. Here's how my visit played out;
time from being seated to server acknowledgement and menus arriving 10 minutes
time from arrival until cocktail arrived 25 minutes - order wrong
appetizer plates still on table when main courses arrived
waiter well intended but didn't know how to handle more than one table
steak ordered med-rare arrived med-well
asked for bill - bread basket and empty martini glasses still on table when we left
no mention or offer of dessert
It felt like i paid 5 star prices for a diner experience
Great food and ambience. Cocktails are well crafted and ambient noise was best early in the dinner hour block.
On my recent visit, it was as it always is here. A great place to see and be seen. This time I ran into a VIP which was a bonus. My friend and I opted for lunch. Our waiter was very cordial suggesting which wine with a tasting. We chose that one. I had the omelet and green salad with fab fries. Don't forget the bread basket. Always a favourite.
Friendly staff, excellent ambience and the buck-a-shuck oysters on Thursdays, along with half-price wine until 8pm are tough to beat! Highly recommended!
The service was quite poor the girl was confused and table maintenance did not exist. Dishes came out cold, overcooked and had multiple missing items.
We have been coming to La Societé for +8 years now.
Although the food is always consistently good, the service has really dropped off, a lot
When we went this past Saturday at 7:45pm, it wasn't busy.
It took 25 minutes before we got our cocktails and any bread on our table.
The server wasn't prompt or attentive.
Ambience and décor are amazing, service is fabulous, food is ok however I feel the is very far away from having a French taste.
This is our 2nd visit to La Societe, and we enjoyed it both times (was a Birthday in both cases).
The staff, service and food were superb! We were seated at a semi-circular booth and it was great!
Always a favorite for oysters, wine and steak frites! Great wine list, excellent service!
Delicious menu options, fun, vibrant place. We would have preferred more attention to our drinks order. The timing was off with the food, meaning we still had most of our cocktails left while our appetizers came out. We prefer to have finished our cocktails before the food came out, to then enjoy a glass of wine with our food. Minor detail, but I wish servers would realize this and give people more time to enjoy their cocktails before serving the food.
Love coming here— the service is excellent, and the food is great. Nicoise Salad was perfect, tuna seared just perfect. The freshness of their food is obvious. Can’t wait to come back.
Daniel is a wonderful addition to the LaSociette experience. The food and service is always excellent
Beautiful decor, good menu and food. The $ doesn’t concern me and shouldn’t dissuade even the budget conscious from trying it for a true upscale French bistro experience.
I have been to this restaurant several times before - always had a good experience, which is why I chose it this time. Unfortunately, the service was not good - worse I've experienced in a long time. We were ignored, waited for more than 30 minutes to order, and the wait staff were rude.
This experience was not what I expected it to be. The service was super slow and our server would ignore us when he would go by the table most of the time. This made it hard to order drinks.
One of the entrees came out super early with the appetizers. When we asked no explanation was given. After the server did not explain but apologized three more entrees came out. This left two guests with no meal for at least 15 minutes. We tried waiting but our food was getting cold. It was so awkward eating all at different times. Again there were apologies given but no compensation made.
The birthday cake came out and they promised they would have their own candles and they didn’t. Luckily my parents had one back up candle. At this point they maybe could have offered to cut the cake for free. Again no compensation was made.
I would not recommend anyone to have their birthday here. It was disappointing.
Had a good experience. Food was fantastic. Wine menu expansive. Service was good but found the servers came by too often. Wish the dessert menu choices were larger as we would have stayed longer. Patio was nice but the seats are uncomfortable - plastic chairs not really suitable for a French Cuisine upscale like restaurant. Wish they had heaters on the patio as it was somewhat chilly. Music could have been louder to drown out the traffic noise. Overall nice.
Too expensive for what you get
Excellent service! I had the coquilles st. Jacques. It was ok, but I definitely prefer other items on the menu (the tartare is really good). The cocktail menu was also really interesting. I tried the grapefruit one as well as the scotch/rye cocktail. Both very well crafted. See you again soon!
Some of the most pleasant waiters I have encountered. Very relaxed and pleasant dispositions. Outstanding ambiance and good food!
Excellent food and atmosphere from a well balanced menu that was evocative of Paris
Lovely restaurant and the food was excellent.
Birthday girls lunch excellent service waiter was fabulous
I love this restaurant. Food is great and this last time we also had an amazing waitress, shes was so nice !
Excellent service, Zach was amazing. The food was delicious my brother and I had a really good time.
The most incredible service and atmosphere
Lovely place in a very fancy area of Toronto! The girlfriend love the atmosphere, very romantic !!
We had a late brunch at the restaurant, and the food was great as per usual. It was 8 of us plus two babies, and we were seated just off the main hall with a bit more privacy. The service could have been a bit more responsive in the beginning-we were looking for our server a few times for pre-order drinks and appetizers. They were much better when the food started arriving however, and as expected. Overall, a great meal experience.
The food was mostly very good. Classic French bistro fare (moules frites, escargots, tartare, etc.). Service also was strong. Not too much, not too little. Very good.
What turned me off was the differential dress for the male and female servers. Men were in white or black shirts, with black pants. Women were in some sort of teeny weeny shorts (VERY close to bottom revealing) with a teeny weeny spaghetti strap tank top. Now, when its 34 degrees outside, I'm sure the male servers were envious. But on a cool September evening, it just seemed, well, offensive. (Remember the Bier Markt scandal?). I am hopeful that the female servers have options about their dress but, regardless, from the perspective of a customer, I was put off and vowed not to return for this reason alone.
We really enjoyed our dinner on Saturday Night at La Societe
Brendon from France was wonderful
And made sure our family was very hapoy with our dinner All was delicious and we returning this week for a friends birthday
For the price, the food should be better. Chefs should know how to cook lamb medium rare. Steak was tough and too thick for steak frites.
Excellent service from Mark as usual.. You can't get better service from any server anywhere in this city. Other service such as the bus people and servers is superb Always make us feel welcome and special. We have been going here for years. We live in Yorkville and this rates as one of our top 3 in the neighbourhood.
Excellent service! It was a perfect choice as we could chat without blasting music. Hope to bring out of town friends for lunch in a couple of weeks.
Birthday. Food was delicious.
Very poor quality food for the price. The environment is nice but expect to be presented with hot plates that are cold.
Excellent restaurant for brunch, great menu, greta place and great service A+
We went for brunch to see if we would enjoy dining here. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her meal and so did I. The idea is to return for dinner on her birthday. My wife is from Quebec and I have dual citizenship being also French. So I know the cuisine and am quite particular. I rarely give anybody a 5 star rating but I can't think of anything that was below my expectations.
Great suggestions and food. Service was prompt and friendly.
