The Sociable Pub
Poor service, not great food. It was disappointing to say the least.
We sat down and started talking, we ordered drinks and received them and four different times we were asked if we werre ready to order food. By the fourth time the little girl who was serving us said ... you only have 90 minutes you know. Well thanks, because currently every restaurant location only does 90 minutes. It was very rude and pushy. Let us dictate how we spend our 90 minutes.
My cranberry/brie/turkey panini had cold turkey and cold brie. While they said “thats how we make it”, its still disappointing. I guess my expecations are too high to expect a hot sandwich for $18.
Shrimp tacos do not say “battered” on the menu. So again, not what was expected.
When we asked for water she took 10 minutes to bring out a bottle of water. We did not order a bottle of water. We were subsequently charged for the bottle of water. When i told her we just wated a glass and we did not touch or open the bottle i told her I wanted it taken off the bill. She said they dont do glasses of water, just bottles. She proceeded to roll her eyes and take the bottle away.
The service was so bad. There are 6 tables in total on this patio, with two servers. I dont understand how you are not more attentive. Once our food was dropped off we we left alone until we were done. We were never asked if we wanted another drink.
There were so many instances in which bettwr communication would have made this a better experience. This establishment has the “underage drinking and people who dont expect much” vibe. I would never go here again.
Really wish I got our servers name but she was an absolute delight! Love coming to the Sociable for date nights. It was raining when we went, but they put out a big tent for the evening which was awesome for outdoor dining. Give their calamari a try as well!
Awesome friendly service! Great patio!
Our server was great. We had no problem with the service.
Unfortunately the food and drinks were sub-par and overpriced. I had the vegan tacos. The tofu tasted like it had been doused with Montreal steak spice and warmed up. Very salty and not the spicy deliciousness that was described on the menu. The mozzarella sticks were cold, and the caesars tasted like ice and tomato juice.
Was having a nice dinner for my dads birthday, fish and chips was lacking in quality, the batter was falling apart and the fish was mushy so my dad sent it back. The owner then came out and ridiculed my dad because he didn’t like the dish, this caused a scene in front of the other tables. He then told us to leave if we didn’t like the restaurants food standard. This was completely unacceptable behaviour by an owner. The food here is far to expensive for the quality you receive, I would liken it to chucks road house but at chucks you get way more bang for your buck. Rude owner, don’t eat here.
Thank you for taking time to review. I sincerely apologize for the situation. I had reviewed all, the person who act as an owner, was actually a Chef and he is fired for his indecent behavior with you. I totally understand your frustration, request you to pls give us another chance. This is something not the way we do business, my sincere apologies on behalf of The Sociable Pub and look forward to your visit again. Best regards, Owner
I have never left a bad review for a restaurant before. This one however, doesn’t deserve your money. To start they play loud and very obnoxious music which is uncomfortably loud. Staff were not following proper protocols for Covid. A man I assume was a manager was stomping around, ordering staff around and generally creating an unfriendly environment. The menus and table were sticky. Our server was indifferent and left us feeling like we were bothering her. Food options are blah. There is a reason why when every other place is sold out you can get a spot here. Just don’t go.
Good food, good portions. A nice night out. Expansive menu.
The drinks that I’ve had in awhile. Food is great.
Food was great but the restaurant needs some upgrades. The washroom was not clean.
We had a great time at the Sociable Pub, the staff are so nice, very friendly and easy to talk to. They were following the Covid guidelines and the ambience inside is great! We will definitely be returning back to The Sociable Pub.
The food was great
Vegan tacos amazing
Would definitely go again
Didn’t even know this place existed! Excellent COVID protocol and service. Food portions were generous, particularly liked the beef curry. Definitely recommend if you’re in the area!
The service was very friendly and clear that our patronage mattered. Our food was served so fast too. We had the beef brisket and blue cheese burger, tasty. We'll be back.
It was only our waitresses second day to be fair- but when she messed up 3 of our orders, she had asked if the wrong item would be “okay”, and despite taking 30 minutes to bring us our first DRINKS, we were asked to “hurry up and finish” our second ones because the time limit was up by both the waitress and the manager. Manager was walking without a mask at times. Food was amazing though when we got our right order.
Plain white bread toasted without the crust was served with the mussels. I expected fresh banquette like all other restaurants provide. My two friends ordered the chicken parmigiana and the chicken was tiny yet a massive plate of penne noodles was given with it which was completely bland. The Tikka tacos were good which I shared along with a poutine with a friend. The poutine was good but tiny for the price. We also had to ask the server for spoons, plates etc as they were not provided. We were also told we could not be provided with glasses of water due to covid??? We were charged $1 for bottles of water.
They are super nice! The atmosphere is great. Especially during the times were in they were very clean, accommodating, followed protocol and did everything they could to make it special. I highly recommend.
So...The Sociable Pub ..what the hell happened to it. It was such a good place, but we visited it today and huge disappointment... Starters were OK, but main dish - ughhh. Fish tacos greasy and sauce on it overwhelmed every other taste.. Lamb shanks and mash potatoes - I do understand that times are hard, you can’t expect everything to be made from scratch , but I expect kitchen staff to know how to operate microwave - we had chunks of ice in our mash. They did apologize and compensate with beef curry - but it also was a disappointment... too bad, it was such a nice place.
Good experience for dining out in COVID
The food was horrible :(, undercooked and bland. We left without eating our meals.
Well, Covid. Not easy times and not easy to find a spot for 8 people to celebrate 3 Birthdays. We came up from TO to Newmarket as one of the Birthdays was a family member in a home. Booked on the patio as no indoor seating allowed. Sun, Oct 25 weather was cold, but no rain, glad I brought a pile of blankets. They didn't have outdoor heaters on the patio, apparently on back order and very hard to get. They tried to help w/ space heaters w/ extension cords. A+ for effort and care. Great service & care for customers. The food? Seemed over-priced for what you got. Battered fish very greasy, batter spiced or herbed? did not sit well for 3 of us, let's leave it at that. Chicken Tikka dishes, especially the tacos, very good. I left feeling that the proprietors, whom I think recently bought the business, have continued the previous menu and format and it's not a 'fit'. This is your business now, I think you should cook what you know and love to cook. Why try to cook what you've bought w/ the business? Make it your own and succeed!!! Best of luck to you. Lovely people. We appreciated. Stay well.
Unfortunately after Oct 19th they will be forced to close for 28 days. But while we were there on Saturday, the Service and the burgers were delicious!
When we went it was completely empty due to covid but the service and food was very good, we plan on going back.
First time at Sociable! It was great! Our server was so friendly and helpful! Ordered the double burger! It was fantastic!
Great service, clean restaurant, lots of choices on the menu.
Disappointed with the shrimp skewers, shrimp arrived unpeeled. By the time they were peeled they were cold.
Too many extra charges to swap out fries or to have a different salad.
Lovely time, service was great and the curry was to die for! Thanks again!
Thank you Sarah. Your comments and review always encourage us to do more and make our guests happy. Regards
We specifically asked that our appetizers be served first and the meal after. We got the meal about 2 minutes after our appetizers arrived at our table. They said "oh, we'll keep this warm for you." I'd much rather have had a 'freshly made' main course and not one that sat for 15 minutes. Meal was just so, so, nothing special for the price. Pepsi seemed to be very watered down - not much flavour. I have had a few great meals at this place in the past, but not this time.
Thank you for your feedback. We sincerely apologize for the service. This is not the way we serve to our esteemed clients. Request you to please give us another chance, will ensure all inline with your order. Sincere regrets, look forward to your visit again.
Being from the east coast i expected more east coast ambience and menu. It was very disappointing and the food and drinks were expensive for pub fare. I will not be coming back.
The Sociable Pub restaurant has always been with one, unchanging goal throughout the years, and that is uncomparable quality of food, processed and cooked in the best way (always fresh), in order to serve it proudly to customers visiting us locally and internationally. We get lots of thumbs up on our decently priced meal and well thought out menu compared to any place with equally great cuisine but we are very sad to hear about your review and hope you give us another try.
The service was wonderful
Good food selection
Thank you so much for your review. We are really happy having you and truly appreciate you being a customer. Looking forward to receiving you next time !
The calamari was super, tender and perfectly spiced, and if you ask for garlic aioli they will sub it for the red sauce no problem! Server was friendly and attentive, and brought everything we needed in good time. Only negative is the prices are quite steep, but overall it was great
Thank you so much Corina for your review. We enjoyed having you. Looking forward to having you again 🤗
A very nice patio experience. Food was very good and the portion size was perfect. Our waiter/server was excellent, attentive without being bothersome. Still one of our favourite go to spots in York Region.
Thank you for the kind rating, Monty! We’re so happy your visit at The Sociable Pub went well. Looking forward to receiving you next time!
