Diner Reviews
  • "We celebrated our one year wedding anniversary here and we had such a great experience!! We received such special service and we really enjoyed the food and drinks! We will definitely go back again!"

  • "We attended on their 2nd Anniversary promotion, "Three Courses of Globally Inspired, Locally Crafted Fare," featuring a special menu. We had been to SoDo before and liked it a lot, the menu is creative and the chef is good. This time, we were disappointed. Perhaps cooking the same specials night after night became tiresome. And the promotion is for Sunday Monday Tuesday only... maybe the regular staff is off those days. The service was spotty and though we had noted "duel anniversaries" on our Open Table reservation and it was acknowledged when the woman called to confirm, there was no mention made at the restaurant by the waiter or host. Bummer. We wanted to be fussed over. We will try again and maybe they will achieve their standards."

  • "We run by SoDo all the time, so when Living Social put out a deal for a three-course meal, I was glad to finally jump on board and go. Service was great! Kale salad was awesome, and the hangar steak was marinated perfectly. Also can't brag enough about the cheesecake! Can't wait to go back."

  • "While visiting our family in Reno we had an early dinner here and it was lovely. The host is gracious and the chef prepared our meal with love! The presentation was well done and the food was delicious. The Ahi had an orange reduction that caused us to ask for the recipe. SoDo is within 3 blocks of the NV Museum of Art and should be considered for your lunch or dinner."

  • "We had lunch on a Saturday morning. The weather was excellent and we dined outside. The food was terrific, the service was superb and the wine list was very well thought-out. I'd recommend SoDo to anyone. This is a very relaxing, intimate restaurant suitable for business or pleasure. We'll definitely go back again. "

  • "I have been to SoDo several times and have always had excellent food and service. Recently, they seemed to have changed the menu and it was not good. The appetizers used to be modern and tasty. Now they are fried and gross. It looks like food from any sports bar in town. The food seems to lack it's special touch and modern twists. I was very disappointed. I'm hoping it was just a bad night and won't normally be like this. I really enjoy this restaurant and don't want to give up, but we'll see...."

  • "Jerk chicken was burnt and extremely dry. The other chicken dish was extremely rubbery. The burger was good as always. The sole with lobster had no flavor. The fish and chips were ok as well. Sat at our table for 45 mins waiting for our food. unacceptable. $175 dinner. Will not go back. "

  • "We had a business dinner with a group of out-of-town executives who love good food and wine. Dinner, drinks and dessert were all wonderful. I will return for business and pleasure. Thank you."

  • "SoDo has very good food. The wait staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The only misstep was our appetizer. We ordered the crab poppers and they were a real disappointment. The carrot soup was wonderful as were our main courses. I had the salmon and my partner had the Angus special. "

  • "Had a wonderful, leisurely lunch on the patio. The food was excellent and the time with friends was fun. I highly recommend SoDo and I am looking forward to my next visit."

  • "I took my 11 yr old daughter to dinner before a Pioneer theatre show and we enjoyed a very good meal. The Baby Kale Salad with steak is a must, I will return just to have that again. The Caesar salad with chicken was ok, I found the chicken a little dry but my daughter loved the salad. The brownie dessert is always our favorite, a must try. The pretzel crust and caramel make this one unique. Coffee was great, the server even made a fresh pot for me. We are locals and return over and over!"

  • "SoDo is a wonderful place to share your most important moments with your friends and family. The food is phenomenal and the service is top notch. I would recommend that anyone who lives in or visits Reno to stop by this establishment. "

  • "Joel and the crew always hit the mark for quality of food, friendly staff and an energetic environment that makes it one of the top places downtown for a business meeting, whether lunch, cocktails or dinner. 'I'm being good' days I usually have the awesome Kale or beet salad. The 'not so good' days, the best lamb burger around."

  • "My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary. We could not have been more thrilled with our experience. I had requested a quiet table when I made the reservation and they absolutely accommodated us and put us all the way in the back at a quaint table for 2. We ordered the calamari based off of other reviews and it was good. I had the special grilled ahi which was unbelievable and had so many different layers to it. My husband had the sole with stuffed lobster and apple which was also excellent-his only complaint was the hint of lobster. We ordered the chocolate crème brulee for dessert which was phenomenal-we resisted the urge to order a second. We will definitely be back!"

  • "Exceeding expectations. There were 6 of us. We ordered appetizers and BOOM, they were on the table fast. Same with our dinners. My lamb was a little less done than i preferred and no fuss made just 5 minutes later out it came perfect. So many great choices on the menu too.Love"

  • "This is a great place! A little noisy but the food makes up for it. I wish there were more variety of vegetarian dishes but the couple that you do have are very good. This place is especially nice in the summer/early fall when you can sit outside. I would recommend this restaurant."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "We found SoDo through a bit of research using OpenTable and UrbanSpoon. It isn't a very big place but offers a nice intimate ambiance for groups of four or less. The service was slower than perhaps it should have been no more than were at the restaurant but the food was certainly worth the wait. The calamari appetizer was incredible. Wine list is adequate and the prices are what you would expect for this type of contemporary cuisine. Definitely worth the short cab ride to get to it."

  • "Happening Downtown Reno meeting place, good food, good service"
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "SoDo is a nice restaurant. I am a vegan and they have a vegan menu with 3 entrees listed. I chose the pasta selection and it arrived covered with Parmesan cheese. REALLY? If a restaurant has a vegan menu, wouldn't you expect that they would be "with it" enough not to put cheese on it? So I sat there while my 3 dining companions ate their dinners and 15 minutes later, my dinner re-arrived, this time with no cheese, thank goodness. The whole situation was not enjoyable."

  • "I was actually disappointed for the first time at SODO. My Greek salad was very average. I have had it several times before and it was much better. Hope this was just an off day."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "Third time we have been to SODO's and it was great again. Very nice dinning, but a little noisy. Food was great with amazing service and the cocktails were fantastic."

  • "Great food and service but noisy, hard to converse with a group larger than 4. But still one of of our favorites."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Had an ad hoc romantic dinner with my wife. SoDo has creative twists on their menu. We tried a few and we were not disappointed. My negatives, mostly nits, were that only bottled beer was offered, and the 2-person tables are very narrow. The positives are the ambience (but don't sit near the waiter/kitchen area) and the reasonably priced wine list."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "As you may or may not realize, Reno is not a hot bed for fabulous restaurants. Besides LuLou's and the Atlantis Steakhouse, where does one go? Well, add SoDo to the list! While the dishes aren't overly exotic or unique, the food is tasty and the wait staff was very good. We had scallops and tuna. Both were fresh, and prepared in a way that they were the main piece of the entrée, the way it should be. While not asked how we would have liked the tuna prepared, it did come out slightly over cooked but it was partially my fault for not stating I'd like it rare. The wait staff was friendly and attentive, but not overly so. For a Sunday night, it was the perfect discovery!"

  • "Dinner was wonderful. We shared crab poppers - good, and a Greek salad - very good. We both ordered scallops - fantastic ! And shared a flan- outstanding !! Service was just the right amount of attentiveness. I want to go again to try some more dishes that looked interesting."

  • "We've been wanting to try SoDo for about 6 months and were not disappointed! Lovely, contemporary spot, a couple of blocks off the main downtown business district. Thoughtful, creative menu with fresh ingredients, and a nice wine list made for a very enjoyable evening! Has to be one of the top 3 restaurants in Reno. We will definitely go back in the late spring/summer months for outdoor dining!"

  • "My wife and I chose SoDo based on the other ratings on Open Table. We both really enjoyed our experience. The menu offers enough variety to please most palates but to overwhelming. The cocktail list was fun and our drinks were delicious. Service was attentive, but not bothersome. Great place."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "I had high expectations ... Probably too high. The food was thoroughly decent, but did not knock my socks off. I had the ribeye which came with an orzo pasta side. The side dish was mushy, moderately flavorful, but very two-dimensional and not terribly interesting. The ribeye was properly cooked, but the steak itself was grisly and fatty. It is very sad to report that my daughter's filet was simply bland. On the other hand, my husband reported that the pork chop was the best of his life. We will likely not go back. There are simply too many options for flavorful, interesting dining, that are more economical."

  • "Started with a reasonably price pinot and shared the calamari app/////most excellent! Then moved on to the hanger steak and Caesar Salad....the hanger steak and accompanying chimichurri was outstanding and highly recommended."
