  • "Stopped by here on one of the first nice days of spring. Loved the setting of the bar. Food was pretty good. Friendly service. Will definitely visit again."

  • "I asked for a rare steak but it came out well done. I kindly asked the waitress to please have it re-made. My companion's food came out and after 15 minutes I'd not seen my waitress or new steak (I could have used more water and maybe another drink). When the manager walked by I stopped him to say "I really don't want my meal, just the check". He started to have an argument with me about how my steak was fine the first time and how I'd not been waiting very long. I used to eat there for lunch all the time because it's close to my office. I'll not be going back anytime soon."

  • "I made this reservation for another person (I did not also attend), but I understand there were no problems or complaints about the meal or otherwise."

  • "As our visit was during the Olympics and the women's hockey team was playing, the noise factor was a slight issue trying to have a conversation. However, the specials of the day were 100% awesome. I had the swordfish which was done to perfection. My associates both had the salmon and could not stop raving how good it was. I also had the opportunity a few months earlier to visit the establishment for a group dinner. The service and food was excellent, which is why I picked this location for the luncheon."

  • "Having worked at 99 High before, this has been a great use of space and love the outdoor seating (except right now in February). Nice lunch choice to add to growing list of sit down restaurants for business lunches"

  • "valentines day dinner at SOH was great. food was delicious and drinks were awesome. Our server was attentive but not overbearing. easy and comfortable dining experience without any specials being pushed on us or over the top servers."

  • "Like the food, the atmosphere -hate all the "high tables and stools". Somewhat overbooked at lunch."

  • "The water just needed a little bit of american training, but with a little prodding he was fine. Great ambiance for a business lunch. Great food."

  • "Very enjoyable evening. My wife and I had dinner before a large group gathering at the same restaurant. The food, service, and ambiance for dinner was quite nice. The service for the group function in the bar was also quite good. A very nice night!"
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "I've seen some uneven reviews for this restaurant. I had lunch there with 4 friends the other day---the service was very strong, which had been a complaint of some reviewers. The food preparation was equally strong --- I had the fisherman stew which was truly outstanding, especially on a chilly day.. I'd have to give a strong recommendation based upon our experience."

  • "Went for lunch with co-workers on a monday at noon. Once of us asked for salad dressing on the side and another asked for a chicken sandwich with no bread (no biggie if it came with the roll..didn't want to waste food if possible). The chef informed our server that this was not possible. The server (whom I felt bad for) informed us that he was too busy to put the dressing on the side or the chicken on the plate with no bread. Having spent so many yrs in the hospitality industry, I was shocked. This chef should be ashamed of himself for not putting his customers first. How much effort does it take to put the dressing in a ramekin vs on the salad?!?! At the end of it all, the food was sub-par and not worth the price-tag."

  • "I had no idea you were in the financial district. Great spot for lunch."
    Dined on 1/9/2014
  • "We walked in on a weekday, at 1130am, and the place was entirely empty, not one table was occupied. hostess asked if we had a reservation, I said no. She said she could not seat us unless we have a reservation, I said can I make one (!), she said no they were completely booked. I said, "the whole restaurant is empty!". So apparently they seat dinners by reservation only, I honestly can say I have never encountered this. if you are thinking of dropping by to be seated, don’t, you have to go through their reservation system to get in there. Most folks that I know don’t appreciate that snobby approach to dinning, it’s too high-maintenance just to grab a quick lunch, most said they will probably go elsewhere, ditto for me honestly"

  • "Took a coworker here for lunch. The experience was good, as expected. Nothing really wowed us. I would return for lunch."
    Dined on 12/19/2013
  • "Bar table service horrible. Went for after work drinks, group of 5 females. The table next to us, group of 4 males, were greeted and beverages served before our server stopped by to introduce herself. One member of our party located a server in the dining room and asked if they would please send a server or the manager our way. Will think twice before visiting again."
    Dined on 11/12/2013
  • "The food was really good. The service was a bit lacking in that the demeanor of our waitress was not friendly and she seemed bother everytime we neded something. We did have a table of 10 so I realize that can be tough, but giving off a bad vibe isn't good."
    Dined on 12/11/2013
  • "The quality of the food is excellent and they get you in and out quick yet comfortably. Great for a casual business lunch."
    Dined on 12/3/2013
  • "This is a good choice for an upscale casual lunch. Good service, good food, nice atmosphere overall. The flatbreads were very tasty. The pan-seared salmon was served quite rare - if want it cooked to medium, be sure to specify. We were seated at a bar-height table, which I found a bit odd given that I had made a reservation well in advance. Also, the bar area was quite noisy, which it made it difficult to hear the waiter."
    Dined on 11/26/2013
  • "have now been twice. previously dinner was great, lunch this time was mixed - chicken sandwich was very good, but would not order crabcake sandwich again. It had 2 very small crabcakes on a very large roll - all I could taste was the bread. service was very good"
    Dined on 11/25/2013
  • "I went there with a party of 8 on a Thursday night for dinner. The service was excellent. There were only a few items on the menu which can be a little difficult for picky eaters. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the presentation was excellent. The bar area was very energetic and full of young professionals. The dining area was a little quieter. My only complaint is that there are no round tables for bigger groups, so we had 8 people at a long rectangular table and couldn't talk to everyone at once."

  • "This place is a beautiful location with great internal design and architecture. It’s a fabulous place to grab drinks and catch up with friends and colleagues. Skip the food…they have a lot of kinks to work out!"
    Dined on 11/12/2013
  • "Food was good but the service was slow. I had a reservation, which they had doubled booked. So we waited 15 minutes for our table despite the reservation. Then it took nearly 30 minutes for our order to be taken and an additional 30 minutes for the main food to come out. So, all in all, an hour and a half lunch on a work day -- and no drinks were involved!"
    Dined on 11/6/2013
  • "It took 15 minutes just to get our order, and 25 more to get the food (just sandwiches). Food was terribly over-salted. Really low quality compared to the setting."
    Dined on 11/4/2013
  • "The service was great. I ordered a salad with a steak topping. The steak was cooked perfectly, but the portion was so small I left hungry. I think it would be safer to order a sandwich if you were really hungry."
    Dined on 10/29/2013
  • "Food is great, and so are the drinks. The service was very pleasant, but they did keep forgetting things we ordered, or sending them to the wrong table, so not great."
    Dined on 10/29/2013
  • "Glad to have a new reasonable spot with a great vibe for lunch or afterwork. Food is excellent for a great bar type experience, very good selection for lunch and afterwork."
    Dined on 9/10/2013
  • "I waited a few months for them to settle into the new location because I know how difficult it can be opening a new restaurant -- even for veteran restauranteurs. Society on High was quick to work out their kinks because when I went in for lunch the other day, I was impressed with how smooth our service and how tasty our food was. We both had fish (my sister the salmon and I the swordfish special). For a quick lunch, this was quite delicious. I always expect good things out of downtown restaurants. Many, sadly, disappoint but SoH was great! Look forward to returning there and enjoying the outdoor patio."
