If we had found this quaint, comfy, social spot on our first night of vacation, we would never have eaten anywhere else. It is THAT good!! And since we had already tried three other local spots before we found this, I can tell you with...some certainty — This farm-to-fork fare should not be missed! Everything we ate was so amazing. The atmosphere is fun and inviting, I literally felt like we were Having dinner with friends. We were greeted and seated near a cozy fireplace. The chef, wearing his Santa hat came to say hello. The ladies who served us were so kind and attentive. They had a ROCKIN AWESOME playlist on and we even sang a bit! I could have stayed here for days... But in addition the the excellent service, the inviting atmosphere, and the great tunes, the food is EPIC. Don’t sleep on the drinks, people. I am a Bloody Mary maven and I am telling you, Mary’s Envy is an appropo name! Spicy, smooth, and salty—if I weren’t such a light weight I would have had 5 of these. As it is, one was pretty strong and the perfect spicy complement to all the fresh flavors we had in our appetizers. Eat anything that includes the Pomodoro sauce - you’ll thank yourself. The calamari was literally perfect...so lightly breaded and kissed with salt. It was tender and buttery. Even my husband ate the Brussels sprout; he hates Brussels sprouts. There was not a hint of bitterness in them. They were amazing. If you like mozzarella, don’t miss the delicious twist on the fried cheese - spiedini. My husband, who is quite the grill master himself, had what he said was the best hamburger of his life. I could go on for days about how much we loved our entire dinner experience at Sylvania Social. But instead, I think I’ll rouse my family and just head back over there for lunch. This place is a true gem, a real feather in Hawley’s cap. Eat at Sylvania Social. You won’t be sorry...More

We were here in Feb 2020 and the food was beyond delicious!! All their entrees have an unique take on familiar foods. The service is incredibly. We can’t wait to dine there over and over again this summer.

We had a small baby shower at Sylvania Social. The chef and owners were very accommodating including developing a specialized menu for the event. The food was absolutely delicious, service was exceptional and very attentive. The staff was very easy to work with and chef...Peter amazed us with his culinary talent as everything was delicious. We will definitely be returning for future events and dinners.More

We tried to stop in for a quick lunch, but took a while to be seated as the place was busy. I had an Iced Coffee and my Mom had a smoothie, I came back later in the week for another Iced Coffee and a...snack, but I don't really recall what I ate. Maybe it was a cookie. Menu is trendy Millennial with some Avocado Toast and other items. A great new option for the younger crowd. I would advise allotting enough time to leisurely enjoy your meal.More
