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.

Great dinner. We asked our waiter to bring his favourites and pair wine/cocktails to the food. Very happy with it all. For wine he brought us a merlot, then a sharing board with meats, cheeses, breads as well as steak, duck, and a dozen oysters. For dessert we had the parmesan cheese cake with a blueberry gin cocktail and finished with a cup of port. Would come back with friends, family or just the two of us.

As always, we had a perfect evening! The staff a friendly, attentive and the food is delicious. We were celebrating a birthday, and we were presented with a lovely piece of cake with a Happy Birthday message, without requesting it. Always a pleasure, and one of our fave spots!

Service was great, the place was really loud due to a few large groups. The food however was really disappointing. I'd come here before and it's been good, but all our food was so salty and 3/5 of us couldn't even finish it all because it was so salty.

Nuit was very accommodating. Our reservation increased from 8 to 10 at the last minute, and they were set when we arrived. The menu was perfect for a large group sharing dishes, and had something for every taste. The staff were incredibly well informed regarding the menu, and the history of the establishment. In fact, we learned that the name of the restaurant came to the owner on a rusty nail and peyote vision quest. Dr. Ruth Westheimer appeared in a dream and whispered "it's nuit", which is understood to mean the Naught Night Inuit. Desserts are pretty great, too.

CHARCUTERIE LOVERS!!! ASSEMBLLLLLEE here. Nuit Social is a must-try for lovers of cheese & meat plates (olive plates too). My visit last night greeted me with top-notch ambiance, service, food & drink. The cocktails were freshly made by an excellent mixologist (Tess I think was her name). For best results, ask Josh to be your server.

The service was amazing! The girl helping us was super knowledgeable and very nice. The food was amazing!!!! The only tiny negative was we were starving and ordered our charcuterie fairly quickly and it took some time to come out. But we made the most of it and sipped on our wine. We would definitely recommend this place. Great place for a catch up with some old friends or girls night. And quiet and romantic for date night.

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.
