Meet the owner

Nuit Social doesn't look like the typical cocktail bar. Owner Tino Bianchi made a point to stay away from the classic dark and broody atmosphere cocktail bars have become synonymous with – at Nuit Social the walls are painted white, there is a large window in the front, letting natural light in and you’ll find a pop of colour in the centre of the small space  thanks to the custom stained glass on the bar.

A welcoming atmosphere is what Tino was going for when he first came up with Nuit Social’s concept – an inviting space, where everyone is welcome.

I keep telling everyone about the amazing meal we had on Thursday night. Food was amazing, service delightful. We had the chef’s selection and thought it was tremendous value! Can’t wait to visit again.

Typical trend-oriented Queen West spot. The decor is fine, pretty basic (used tables and chairs with 'character', kind of rustic, kind of just 'I found this dumpster diving and cleaned it hoping it could pass for vintage chic') with just enough 'laissez-faire' attitude that it doesn't seem too overly pretentious. The servers are fine, but the 'too cool for school' attitude needs to go; you're serving people and you should be more focused on making sure they're happy, rather than making sure the you seem cool to the guy sitting at the bar. The food was fine, nothing revolutionary - sure it's a bit adventurous and creative, but I can't say it's entirely memorable. The fact they serve mainly sharing dishes was good for the setting. I wouldn't call this a dinner spot, I'd call this a 'snack and/or cocktail' spot. Anyway, it was what I expected. Unfortunately, this is the type of place that will probably turnover in a year or two like so many other trendy restaurant ventures in the area. I don't know that I'd recommend it, but if you're in the area and want to try it, than by all means go ahead.

Went to Nuit Social for Buck a Shuck oysters with my husband and a bunch of friends. Cool little place with a cool vibe. Food was fantastic! We had oysters, mussels, the pork ribs and a charcuterie board and everything was delicious! Our server was super nice but the service was a little slow and our drinks took a really long time to come each time we ordered. All in all though, Nuit Social was a cool spot and we'd definitely go back.

The servers were very nice. I think that the patio is more like a crappy backyard though. Dirty old worn out cushions and ants in the wood seating. A dead plant in the corner with lots of flies. This restaurant tries to be trendy and a cool vibe but it misses the mark. I had the buck a shuck oysters which you must purchase a drink to get the special. Drinks were overpriced but my mojito was good. The oysters didnt seem that fresh. No sauces to eat it with other than a really nasty vinegar mix, tabasco sauce, horse radish and lemon. I opted for plain lemon. I was worried i would get sick given that the oysters didnt look the freshest but thank god i was fine.we had 2 dozen oysters. I've had better quality buck a shuck oysters at other restaurants. Unfortunately i won't return and there are much nicer patios on Queen st.

We had a wonderful time celebrating my partner’s 30th birthday. As a group of 9, we were encouraged to dine family-style from the chef’s tasting menu and were treated to a seemingly unending array of delicious dishes which everyone has been raving about since. The service was great. The drink selection delighted and suited everybody. And we just had the best time.

Great old school cocktails done right. Ribs ontop of mac cheese so yummy. Although the parmigiano cheesecake sounds odd it really works. Only trouble is the place is quite small so make rez or expect to wait if you go during peak times.
