    Nicely located and pleasant, quiet atmosphere but the prices are a bit high for a run-of-the-mill American breakfast served in a hotel lobby. The couch and coffee table setting might be better suited to have tea/coffee rather than lunch.

    Went there for Valentine s day, didn't have a good time at all. The waitress seemed to be stoned and couldn't answer any of my questions on the menu. Music was way too loud to have a conversation, I complained twice about it. They put me too near from the fire place which was way too hot. Besides the food wasn't good either. I ordered a well done steak that came rare . Not going back there again.

    Soho Grand was nice for an occasion. For the portions, it wasn't worth it. The waitress stressed how large they were and we were a little let down when they arrived. The way the menu was organized/explained was confusing. So, overall the food wasn't great, but the ambiance was nice (not sure it was worth $200, but nice). Not sure I'd return.

    Always a luxurious respite in a bustling SoHo... soaring windors with muted draperies, cozy sofas and coffee tables to dine at (we always sit in the lobby to people watch and lounge. Great Cobb salad, perfect sandwiches and burger. Yummy fries that stay amazingly hot in brown paper cones set in pewter cups. Sandwiches served on cutting boards.. very cool.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2002
    Dined on 5/8/2011
    We ate here with 4 adults and 1 kid. When we checked in, the hostess glanced disapprovingly at our group (bc of the kid, I guess) and flatly told us that there were no tables in the restaurant part (which was small) and we'd have to eat in the "lounge," which meant we would have to eat in living room chairs hunched over a low table. Two of our guests were older, so I reminded her that I'd made a reservation. She then said it would be at least 30 mins and we could wait at a lounge table until one opened up in the dining room. Miraculously, a table opened in 5 minutes and we were seated. Service was fine, but nothing to warrant the automatic 20% they tack on the bill. Food was perfectly good, but not anything special and WAY overpriced.

    Dramatic over employment is enjoyed by couture clad servers at this beautiful space. Absent service levels were picked up by a bartender who would accommodate a request for water if you brought your glass to the bar, and with a busboy providing salt and pepper for your table if you could catch his eye. After a perfectly adequate meal, the server returned, allowing my male companion measured glimpses of her silhouette and gravity defying undergarment to successfully upsell the dessert of the evening - which was spectacular. Spare yourself - and your wallet - only go here for a drink at the bar and to enjoy the gorgeous space.

    I had hoped to have a great night with friends on a Friday night at Soho Grand Bar & Lounge. Left deeply disappointed after not finishing half of the food, except the flatbreads which were quite good. We found the decor to be outdated (we are from Iceland, perhaps accustomed to the Scandinavian clean and smooth style), and the music did not fit the ambiance they seem to be seeking (they had a dJ). The waitress did not ask us about the half-eaten food, instead charged us in full without any questions.

    I was not prepared for how incredibly pretentious the staff at the SoHo Grand would be. It was over 10 minutes before we were approached for our drink order and another 15 for delivery. A delay like this might have been understandable had the restaurant been extremely busy, which it was not. After the rude service and unneccessary delays, we elected to go someplace else for dinner. I was extremely surprised to find a 20% gratuity automatically included on a check for drinks for four people, which I suppose explains why the waitstaff can treat guests any way they wish - they are receiving tips either way - it's not up to the patron. Will not be going back nor recommending to friends.

    While the food was fair - when it finally came, which was a LONG time coming, the ambiance was unimpressive, and the service was absurdly slow and completely indifferent. We were blown away with how poorly set up the space was and how terrible the experience was - and it was expensive on top of that! We couldn't even get our server to bring water, though we asked several times, and that should've tipped us off to how slowly the food would ultimately come. We will never return, and couldn't have been more disappointed in the whole thing. Shame on the Soho Grand for not caring more!

While the food was very good, it felt like we were an "after thought" to the wait staff. In addition, they took my credit card at the BEGINNING of the meal. Said it was because we were not guests in the hotel. I would not return.

    If you happen to be staying in the hotel and need a drink I guess this place will do. The food was not all that good as the pizza was something I could make better when I was ten. This place reminds me of the the Woody Allen movie lines "Boy, the food at this place is really terrible." The other one says, "Yeah, I know; and such small portions." Guess this place is trendy do if trying to impress date and want to pay for the drinks and hang not bad but otherwise find someopalce else to eat and drink.

    My daughter, cousin and I hit up the Soho Grand for Breakfast on Mother's Day. Our wait staff and maitre'd were posed, professional, welcoming and extremely friendly. I highly recommend the eggs benedict with spinach & ham because it's exceptional. My cousin ordered the same but with salmon. Overall, she said it was tasty but a bit salty so be advised. As a treat, each of us ordered the juice of the day which was freshly squeezed grapes and it was fantastic! The only critique I have is on their pancakes. They were served overdone and cold. The next batch came out undercooked because the batter was too thick and the stove was set too high. Lastly, be advised that they add on a 20% gratuity regardless of your experience.

    I was at the SOHO Grand for a business meeting. The place was very nice and the menu was great. The issue is the furniture. We were seated in a comfy living room type chair and a love seat with a very low LR type table. This is fine for a few drinks but to eat with a client was extremely uncomfortable. I wanted to get the soup but who can eat soup with that set up? If this is what they wanted to portray, then they shouldn't have soup, steak and all yummy things on the menu that require a fork and a knife and an actual table you can eat from. Finger food would have been better. I ordered pizza which I didn't want but was so self conscious of spilling it on my suit that it was practically frozen by the time I got half way through.
