La Societe is one of cologne small but charming restaurants. The set is very romantic and very popular therefore reservations are needed weeks in advance but well worth the wait.
The moment you enter the restaurant you can see why this is a special restaurant, it's very French, very cute and very romantic. It has very old world charm. The food is superb. Mouth watering with every piece that leaves your fork and enters into your mouth. You just want to savour every bite and each and every one of their dishes is like little treasures and new journeys waiting to be tasted.
You can either have the a la carte or go for one of their surprise menus however during your booking you should let them know what you cant or don't like to eat and if by chance you eat meat tell them how you like it cooked and they will work it out from there. They have a great selection of wines and their cheeses dishes is a must to try.
Looking at the costs, I feel for everything you get it is really worth it and you wont feel let down, wines are normal for what you pay in any upper class gourmet restaurant and the food is a little pricey but it does taste wonderful. For two people, two 6 course surprise gourmet menu, with two bottles of fine red wine and extra drinks is around 250 300 Euros.
The staff are really nice and they always come by and have a chat with you and talk about what you are eating or drinking. Their service is really personal, I remember when I ordered a diet coke which wasn't in stock one of the waiters quickly nipped out to the shop up the street and came back with bottles of diet coke and in 5 minutes a class of diet coke and ice was on my table. Now this is really personal and what I think is fabulous service, they could of like many restaurants say no we don't have that and you choose something else, but here in La Societe they go out of their way to make your evening not only enjoyable but special.
This restaurant in my mind is a romantic restaurant for two people and I give it 5 stars and high recommendation for their service, food, wines and ambience.
A very high end presentation, perhaps a but pretentious for my tastes. Food is creative and quite good. Chairs are small and rather uncomfortable for a 3 hour+ meal (no exaggeration) wine list is reasonably priced.
