I think each of us in the party though our choices were either good or very good. Salads were good but not exceptional, soup was great, dumplings were great and the two seafood entrees were very good. The decor is beautiful and the service was excellent.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was AMAZING! However,The food was AMAZING! However, our service was a lacking on the personable side. Our main server seemed unimpressed and I got the feeling that she assumed we were young and had no money to spend. She was in a rush to get us our check and was not personable. But the wait staff was very friendly!
Overall, the food was great and we will definitely be back--just requesting a different server!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI have never had a bad meal.I have never had a bad meal. The food has always been excellent. I like to try different foods and have never been disappointed by the menu. There is always something new to try. Soba is one of my favorite places.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMIncredible Birthday MealExcellent meal all the way around. Everything on the menu is wonderful, including the desserts, so save room. Soba also has Valet parking now which makes the parking issue far less stressful.
Our table was ready for us when we arrived, and they were happy to wait til we got a drink at the bar. Our waiter was attentive and helpful. Everything was fabulous. We had two appetitzers (maki tuna and the calamri), and of course for the main courses, the miso cod was wonderful as usual, and the sesame tuna was a new gem for me.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulMy wife and I love your restaurant. The food is so original and our waitress was on the ball. We always recommend soba.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe took our out-of-town guestsWe took our out-of-town guests to Soba on a Saturday night. We all enjoyed our food and the service was just right. The atmosphere is calming and beautiful - perfect for dinner and conversation.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was a little spicierThe food was a little spicier than expected, but very good. The service was excellent.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a good evening atmosphere.Always a good evening atmosphere. Excellent service. It is unusual in Pittsburgh, and refreshing, not to be interrupted in mid-conversation by a waiter asking how we are enjoying the meal! The tuna was first-rate and the spicy basil noodle very acceptable. The sea bass was fresh and cooked just enough--a pity the sauce was so salty. The banana split was a work of art.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe first time we went toThe first time we went to SOBA was on a Friday evening and it was very crowded and noisy. This visit was on a Sunday evening and it was the opposite - not crowded and quiet. We had a server-in-training who did a very good job and will likely get an outstanding rating if we have her again. Food is interesting and delicious.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and ambiance. ServerGreat food and ambiance. Server was very knowledgable and the food was perfectly timed between courses.

Grilled baby octupus is outstanding and highly recommended.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, slight hiccup.They ignored our request for a first floor table, never explained why. Our waiter gave our dinners to another table causing us to wait another 30 minutes. We were in no hurry so not a big deal. An apology would have been nice though.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is our favorite placeThis is our favorite place to eat in Pittsburgh. The Tuna Tartar is great!3/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
