restaurant review: social

Restaurant: Social
Location: 537 Sussex Drive, Ottawa
Telephone: 613-789-7355
Website: social.ca
Meal type: Dinner

Average price per person: $26-$60 CAD

What I had:
~ Calamari appetizer
~ Mariposa duck leg confit, potato rosti, seasonal vegetables, pickled cranberry glaze (pictured)
~ Mandarin Dream cocktail


My first experience was during Winterlude and I was super impressed. I wasn't disappointed after my second visit. Social is a restro-louge in Ottawa and has a dining room and patio with loads of classy ambiance. The service was great (as I would expect for a restaurant of this caliber) and the food was very tasty. My duck was just a tad dry, but it's hard to serve an impressive duck to me as I always compare it to succulent Chinese style roast duck. I think this is 1 of my favorite places to eat in Ottawa...if only I could afford to eat there every day. =P
