First of all, great hostess at the door! Even though we didn't have a reservation she managed to squeeze us in with a promise we would move to the lounge when needed. The menu is huge but we went for the group menu. Food was...More

Innovative menu. Great Service. Everything Scrumptious. If I act quibble about anything, the plates came out super quick, one right on top of another. But if I lived nearby, I'd visit again and again and again

We loved the variety, taste and quality of the sushi; really delicious. The service by our waitress, Asthildur, and the maitre'd was friendly, timely and thoroughly professional. The ambiance was superb. This restaurant is not to be missed if you like sushi.

We had a phenomenal meal at Sushi Social. Delicious cocktails! I had the spider roll and my husband had the ribeye which he said was one of the best steaks he's ever had. Atmosphere was romantic and staff were all wonderful.

Thoroughly enjoyed the wide spread of food we shared. The only dish that didn't score a five was the edamame, too much rosemary and best kept simple. Everything else was superb!

Open at the end of 2011 and a hot favorite on the Reykjavik restaurant scene, Sushi Social - samba & grill offers a deliciously unique take on homegrown ingredients, fusing Iceland's freshest flavors with Japanese and South American influences. The menu offers a great selection, tempting smaller courses, traditional and "Juicy- Sushi" , amazing steaks and sweet desserts. If you can't decide what to go for, the Icelandic feast is a perfect solution - six courses form an incredible taste experience that includes the national aperitif 'Brennivin' and an Icelandic Skyr panna cotta for dessert. Fabulous chili mojitos and a gorgeously eclectic interior are the icing on the cake at Sushi Social. Hand- carved Brazilian curios and some 50 pretty Japanese birdcages complement the contemporary lines and gentle feel of the place.
