Pleasantly surprised!This restaurant is absolutely amazing, with a calm quiet atmosphere. The service was outstanding, with all emoyees having great knowledge of the current menu. The food is an oral amusement park, with flavors that you wouldn't expect. We received help from our waitress in making a few choices- and were not disappointed . There was a sense of personalization in the service, like they were there just for us.....5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat mothers DayExcellent food, Best filet I have had in a long time.

The quality of food was very, very good and the service attentive but not invasive. I will definitely keep SoDo on my list of favorite restaurants!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food!I really enjoyed my Greek salad with Steak added. The steak was cooked perfectly and the greens were fresh!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGetting betterThis was my third time to SoDo and it's getting better every time. The scallop appetizer was cooked perfectly and my salad (southwestern, i think) was very tasty as well. We sat outside and really enjoyed the neighborhood, its such a nice gem.
The service was ok. I know that people in Reno aren't used to dining for multiple hours, but we felt pushed to order when we weren't ready. It was so nice outside that we just wanted to sit and enjoy our drinks for a while, before actually eating. I would recommend the servers ask and try to get a feel about how their patrons would like to be served.
Regardless, I'll be back and happy that there's a great local restaurant.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMMy new favorite restaurant in RenoI love that Reno is generating new restaurants that feature fresh and local ingredients and nontraditional fare. Lately I've been making an effort to try a new one at least once per month. Frankly, although some are great, I haven't been blown away by any of them--that is until now. SoDo is amazing! Instead of an entree, I ordered to appetizers: Calamari and Scallops. The Scallops were served with a very subtle balsamic drizzle on a bed of fresh sliced strawberries. Some how these melt in your mouth scallops were infused with the strawberry essence. The spicy Calamari were hands down the most tender I've ever eaten anywhere in the world, and are served with a delicious aioli sauce. I can't wait to try everything else on the menu!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSodo never disappoints. EverySodo never disappoints. Every person I have brought has returned and brought someone else.

A very vibrant, happy atmosphere that does not feel forced like some other downtown eateries, makes for an enjoyable dining experience for lunch or dinner. The standard menu has enough to satisfy the most discerning appetite, but there are always specials that are just that.
Great for indoor and outdoor, as the weather gets nicer.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
