My sister and I went here for Dinner on Sat. March 25th at the recommendation of a local guy we met earlier that day at blue lagoon. We arrived 9:30 pm, and the place was packed...but it appeared that a lot of tourists were just leaving. We were told that it would be at least a 20 min wait, but... More

I had two great meals here and went back the second night because the Sashimi party dish was so delicious, beautifully presented and pretty good value for the price, though prices in Iceland are generally high. Andri was my excellent server, as was the hostess who's name I didn't get. The local fish, including the torched arctic char, halibut and... More

So my hubby and I went here for dinner one night as per the recommendation of a local. I am not going to lie this place is pretty pricey. But...oh my god the food was outrageously good. We decided to try the "Simply the Best", which is a price fixed menu of certain dishes. We were beyond pleased with our... More

We ordered the "Icelandic Feast" tasting menu so that we could try unique, local items. Amazing! We enjoyed a leisurely dinner and were quite full. The restaurant was filled with locals and tourists. Wonderful decor, great location. We were especially pleased with server Hjorvar and manager Kaer. They also have a terrific happy hour!

Sadly this is the firs negative review in my life :( Me and my boyfriend have heard about this place a lot and were planning to have a dinner there next week. However we were passing by yesterday and decided to have a drink and check how it looks inside. I loved the interior and general atmosphere, place was cozy... More

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.
