the staff was really helpful and accommodating. This is a great place to grab a quick bite to eat or have a nice date. The bar has a good selection and there are so many interesting and delicious choices. It is a great spot in the SOWE neighborhood

Definitely Worth the Evening!
The staff at Sowe were very gracious and attentive. They were able to answer any and every question about the menu and gave excellent recommendations. The main dishes were excellent, and well portioned. The dessert menu was unique, and had some creative twists on classic desserts. All members of the party were very satisfied and happy with the meal, restaurant, and staff. Definitely hope to go back for brunch!

A little gem in Gray's Ferry
A little gem in Gray's Ferry (I think)and close enough to the sports complex to grab a bite before a game or concert. Only open for 1 year but I hope SoWe is on the scene for many more. GO!!!

Saw this on US of Bacon - so went for just the bacon beignets - and surprised that the rest of the brunch selections we had were also amazing! Carrot Cake belgium waffle - SO good! Will definitely be back for another meal.

I am at SOWE at least once a week
The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and the bar. The specials are really special and change everyday. The food is all top quality and prepared properly. I will keep coming back.

Fun and friendly
The service was prompt and the food was excilent!
It was a quiet brunch experience with new hip background music that me and my girlfriend thoroughly enjoyed.
Thank you SOWE

Loved the Mac and cheese. cocktails were excellent. sandwiches were good but unmemorable. Enjoyed the theme of the place. On the whole, a solid neighborhood place. I would come back for a drink and appetizer/dessert.

A different spin
They put their own spin on each dish each piece compliments the other in a way that just leaves your mouth asking for more

I keep going back...
I have been coming here since it opened. The ever changing menu with the freshest vegetables is great.

Pork Belly Sandwich
We went here because we saw it on "US of Bacon," where they tasted the bacon beignets (a dessert on the menu). We were actually a bit disappointed with those. That said, we ordered the Pork Belly sandwich and is was incredibly delicious! We also tried the grilled cheese and that was pretty yummy too. My friend ordered the Carrot Cake Waffle for dessert and I actually thought that was pretty good--better than the beignets! They have a small area of outdoor seating, where we sat, and it was very pleasant. Later in the night, they put on some casual music, which was at a pleasing volume.

Great food, worth detour!
The steak frites was wonderful, as was the generous-with -the-crab-and-shrimp, seafood Cobb salad and the dishes going by (and seen outside, as we were perched acrossfrom the bar by a large window) looked wonderful. Smaller crowd than some other local spots, but a nice vibe and very solid food!
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful easy reliable fun!
Sound positive? It was seriously great food, from the mussels through the carrot waffle and ice cream dessert (which we couldn't finish, but enjoyed trying to), with attentive staff who knew the food and had great recommendations for that and for wine. The outdoor seating was pleasant, prices reasonable and all in all, a pleasure.

Best Burger Around
The food at So-We was amazing! I had the burger and it was the best burger I have ever had in my life!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Saw the restaurant onto, and had to try it. Live outside of Philly and took some friends into town. Dinner was awesome( try the flatbread or buffalo shrimp. Sowe burger was great, and wife loved the grilled cheese( with bacon!)

This must be a gastropub!
SoWe's simply great. It's a corner bar with class - clean & comfortable with great service & enough room to relax. The food's excellent & they offer about 2 dozen great wines, most under $40. We started with a sparkling Loire white to go with tuna tartare, zucchini wheels, Buffalo shrimp & a cheese plate. Then came crab cake sandwich & burgers (both delicious) & a vegan BLT (just OK per our vegan). Portions are ample and everything looks as good as it tastes - even the vegan BLT looked wonderful to me. Of course, the Salice Salentino we had with our entrées helped fuel the fires of happiness. The beer list is also exciting, with cool stuff like Oskar Blues, Strongbow & Sixpoint plus PBR, Yuengling & other staples. We'll be back!

Food was great, service was rough
Made a reservation a few days before we wanted to come in, was able to make a 10 AM reservation. Got a call the morning-of (after 9 AM, no less) saying they don't open until 10:30, but would still honor my reservation. Their website says they open at 10, which was also annoying.
Arrived a little before 10:30, and though others were let in, we had to wait until 10:30 to get in. The dining room was absolutely freezing cold, the service wasn't the best, but the food was great and we ended up having a good time. Maybe it was just not a good day for the staff, but we'll definitely try back.

Excellent- Best Burger in Town!
Every time I have been to SoWe I always leave extremely satisfied. I love it so much that I went two times in one weekend. All of their food is amazing (burger is to die for) and the service is great! This place is a neighborhood gem.
