Diner Reviews
  • "The place is good and the food was great but for some odd reason they won't offer an extra waffle for the chicken & WAFFLES (emphasis on the s in waffles). I don't understand how its against your policy to give me more food especially if I'm willing to pay for it. It didn't make sense to me and I was very disappointed"

  • "Went there for brunch with a friend. Our reservation was for 12 o'clock and I didn't realize that was when the restaurant opened. Right at 12 o'clock the doors opened and they were ready to serve us. The ambiance is great, and our waiter was timely and courteous. All of the brunch options sounded great. I got the sweet potatoe pancakes and I was NOT disappointed. Would definitely go there for brunch again. Note: They won't seat you until your entire party is there."

  • "I made the reservations for my Bff for husband 47th birthday they had never been to Soco and I told her this would be great place to celebrate his birthday. My Bff text me half hour after their arrival and said THANKS FOR RECOMMEDATION WE ARE ENJOYING THE DRINKS, APPETIZERS AND DINNER. I was so HAPPY they enjoyed their food at Soco."

  • "I had the grits with lobster and shrimp(gravy on the side), it was great even the day after. Service was on point, we came from a play so we were a few minutes late, we had to wait about 25 min to be seated no big deal. Short ribs were tasty, I usually share and sample but I didn't want to share so I didn't really sample the food of the other 5 ladies ;). Go and enjoy, I'm going with my family in July. All of the ladies enjoyed their eats."

  • "First time at Soco's and won't be the last. Went with my girlfriends and we had a blast. Food was good, wait staff excellent and ambience nice. Only problem is that when it's hot outside sitting in the outside area not a good idea as you will bake like we did. The other problem was that the strawberry lemonade was more like water with some random pieces of strawberries, didn't like this one bit. Next time will stick with water. Overall a nice place for a Sunday brunch. P.S. place gets pack so arrive extra early for your reservation."

  • "We arrived late, and missed our reservation, but the hostess found us another table immediately. Although the place was busy, our Server did an excellent job of staying on top of his station. The food was excellent, and being a restaurant owner myself, I am pleased to give kudos to a place that has learned how to do Soul Food/Comfort Food right. Great Food + Great Service + Great Atmosphere = Winning Combination."

  • "Went to soco to celebrate Father's Day. Made reservation. Without one there is a 45 min wait. Love the decor. Wait staff was very friendly and accommodating as my 2 yr old was a handful 😊 they didn't mind. I had the BBQ Asian chicken - delish ! My son had fried chicken n fries - fried chicken was so delightfully crisp and light and juicy. I'll def try the chicken and waffles next time. I had about 3 mimosas - lovely. Loved soco. Would def return. Only complaint: I wish the tables were a lil bigger"

  • "This is actually my third time at soco so I absolutely love their food. The Mac n cheese is to die for. The thing is no matter how good the food is or ambience, service has to be on point. My server was not attentive, took 40 mins to bring our drinks, food came a lil while after. Since he didn't check on us after the food n drinks were dropped he was unaware my friend hated her drink, it was too late to want something else because we were done with our food. He looked upset as well didn't come back to the table only to bring the check with the drink still on the bill. We were so over soco at that point."

  • "I actually heard about this place from Chef Roble and was amazed at his posting on Instagram. I knew I would have to try it. Now me not really liking Waffles I had to try the Red Velvet and chicken. I must say it exceeded my expectations, in short it was delicious. The Pork chops were outstanding from what I tasted from my friends plate. Its a definite go to spot... Next time I am in town I would love to try dinner. Oh yeah and beyond that the host was very accommodating as we were 5 minutes late past the grace period. Thank you for your generous hospitality... From a Brooklyn Native!"

  • "Not bad. Enjoyed the food. I had the blackened salmon with mashed sweet potatoes and green beans. The drinks are also very good and worth the price. If reservations are made be on time, I was late and our table was given up after 10 mins past reservation time overall a great chill spot. "

  • "I made reservations a month ahead. When we arrived there was a long line outside because they don't open until 12noon. After opening and waiting ten minutes to get to the front of the line we were seated. All the people before us waited to be told they were seating reservation only. this could have been avoided by making an announcement when the doors open so that the line would stay and the Reservations people walked in first. DID I MENTION NO ONE SAID HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!! We were seated and waited 15 minutes for water? Then we waited 20 minutes for our drinks? we were a table of 4 and all the other tables that were seated after us received their drink orders and appetizers before us? not enough space to write the rest of this MD nightmare"

  • "I felt that my husband was profied, when he was asked to take his kongal off,that is not a baseball cap. If you are talking about high standards, no jeans, no caps etc,etc, patrons should be turned away with jeans. I saw that and I felt my husband was profiled. As for ambiance I am yet to see that. I will not go into details about that, because it will not be cute. I sat at the back and I was appauled with what I saw there."

  • "My girlfriends and I came after a show at the BAM Harvey theater. Though we had reservations, we still had to wait 10 minutes which was that bad. We were sat down in the greenhouse section but asked to be moved and we were moved when an indoor table became available. We all enjoyed our food and our server Crystal was wonderful. Would love to try their brunch."

  • "SoCo is a fantastic place. We sat in the enclosed garden, which was lovely and the staff could not have been nicer. We started with the warm, right out of the oven cornbread muffins topped with butter. OMG! To die for! The house special salad was a lovely mixture of greens, cranberries, glazed nuts, orange sections, a perfectly balanced dressing, and a breaded and fried slide of goat cheese. Creamy and a perfect warm contrast to the refreshing salad. The famous fried chicken on a red velvet waffle did NOT disappoint. It simply was the best fried chicken I ever had. Perfectly seasoned, and not salty or greasy at all. The waffle was outstanding and more like dessert. The mac and cheese was divine. Skip the diet and have lunch at SoCo!"

  • "Very lively restaurant in Brooklyn. Was glad we had booked as seemed very busy. Lots of groups so was pretty noisy. That was perfect for us but might not be suitable if you were looking for something romantic & intimate. Food was very good & reasonably priced. Portions were huge! We found it impossible to finish our meals but they do provide doggy bags. Great cocktails. Friendly staff. "

  • "I had an amazing time at Soco. Definitely worth going to again and again and again. The ONLY thing I wish is that they include ONE breakfast item on their lunch menu for everyday eating. I originally only went because I heard great things about their Strawberry Shortcake French Toast. Come to find out, you can only get that on Saturdays or Sundays for brunch. I was pretty bummed out but other than that it was great. Personal Recommendations: Mardi Gras (alcoholic beverage) Soul Fried Sandwich (meal)"

  • "I was told I didn't have a reservation when I did. The noise level is overwhelming like a fast food joint! The food is so-so: too many milk products used in the cooking. Whoever heard of mac-n-cheese with no American or cheddar cheeses. A waiter took my straw from the table while I was eating - tacky. Basically, Soco is just a diner!"

  • "I loved it so much I went two days in a row, Thurs 4/17 for brunch with friends and Fri 4/18 for dinner. The noise volume is a lot less on a Thursday afternoon but I still enjoyed myself and so did my date (his 1st Soco experience) Friday night. The only problem I would say we had was the table we were first seated at (it was in the middle of everything which was extremely annoying) but once another table opened up the staff moved us without a problem. The staff was nice and friendly, food was Great and inexpensive. I would definitely recommend it to all. Also you have to try the Mac and Cheese, it's slap your mama good :-). Enjoy"
