- Weekday lunchSoDoDined on 8/22/2014Food was very good however waiter got so busy at lunch that we didn't see him for half hour straight! We came early to avoid the crowd (which we did) but then it got so busy we couldn't get the check. Finally asked the hostess for change so we could just leave cash with a tip at table. Still took the hostess a while to get change. Even though waiter was busy, he was very nice and friendly. Just had to wait too long to get the check!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- SoDo divine choice!alfrescofanDined on 8/10/2014I've dined here with various friends several times, each with superb, friendly, attentive wait staff! Food items have been perfectly prepared and lovely presentation. Interesting menu mix seems to satisfy those who enjoy simply fish/chips, salad, or more adventuresome choices. It would be a shame if you didn't save room for one of their divine desserts...or at least share one. Love the neighborhood corner location!Special Features:
- Consistently goodFoodsnob1950Dined on 8/8/2014Very nice eating outdoors. We have been to SoDo many times and the food has always been good. Proportions are generous.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great find, would return again!km775Dined on 7/25/2014The location is great, just a few blocks off of downtown. Food was well prepared, eye apealing and very tasty. Prices were ok. Wished our server had told us about the daily specials. Did not hear about them until we overheard other servers telling their customers about them. LOVED the purse racks that they bring tableside for women carrying a purse!! Thoughtful and unique solution for age old problem of where to put your purse when dining out. There was even a woman nearby who used the rack to hang her cane. Wonderful idea!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Reno's bestFoody2bDined on 7/18/2014Reno has finally come into its own with the addition of this fabulous restaurant. Centrally located and meals that delight the senses. One of my favorites.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Cool spotPaulandPaulinaDined on 7/11/2014We came to evaluate the place for possible Christmas party. We were looking for unique ambiance and a place that our peeps usually wouldn't go to, which it was. We were also looking for modern American food, kind of like LuLu's, which it wasn't quite there. The pork belly wasn't as crispy and flavorful (I think the other place seasoned it with maple sugar), pork chops was on the dry side and sauces were little bland, crab poppers sauce didn't have any flavor. Cesar salad was great and Poblano Relleno dish was pretty good. The dishes were too big and by the end we didn't have enough room for dessert. Overall, food was fair, cocktails were fair, wonderful ambiance and service. We are still shopping for our Christmas Party place though.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 7/11/2014Service was great, salad was good and noise was not to bad.
- Part of the new vibrant scenepprinterVIPDined on 7/10/2014Like many smaller cities in the country, Reno is developing an excellent new restaurant line up. SoDo was one of the leaders and continues to be a treat on every visit.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- We will try again.bookmarcusDined on 7/1/2014We 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great gem in RenoCharlosVIPDined on 6/29/2014Excellent food and better service in the heart of the city. A place that is a mist go to hang out on the patio with friendsSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- OpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 6/26/2014Service was a little slow. We were the only table there as it was an early dinner.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Will go back!NVfoodyDined on 6/23/2014We 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Reno dinnerSandyjkVIPDined on 6/14/2014While 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.Special Features:
- ExcellentStevAVIPDined on 6/3/2014We have always enjoyed this delightful restaurant as to the place for special meal to celebrate The evening was perfect in every way Everyone enjoyed meal from start to finishSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- We enjoyed our first visitTheEpicureanVIPDined on 5/17/2014We 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Not as good as it used to beluvgoodfoodDined on 5/16/2014I 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....Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Food was badWoodyDined on 5/11/2014If you want a waiter that urgues with you and brings out the wrong food this is the place to go
- Very good foodDarrylDined on 5/10/2014SoDo 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.Special Features:
- Horribly let downOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 5/10/2014Jerk 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.
- Executive Dinner1greatfindDined on 5/7/2014We 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.Special Features:

- Lovely Sunday LunchRenoLoriDined on 5/4/2014Had 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Worthwhile to visitkcat614VIPDined on 5/3/2014I 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- One of the best in Reno!!!renotahoe33Dined on 4/30/2014SoDo 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.Special Features:
- A consistent favorite3rdRockConnectorDined on 4/28/2014Joel 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Wonderful Easter treatKarynWDined on 4/20/2014We ate our Easter dinner at SoDo and had a wonderful time. The food was divine and our waiter, Wilson was fabulous! An overall perfect evening!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Over Rated & Over PricedBkfenceVIPDined on 4/12/2014A lamb "Rack" @ $32.00 consists of more than two freaking ribs: game over!! Fifth chance and will not return.
- Enjoyable!beefcomboDined on 4/1/2014We took a friend who was visiting from Chicago, and we all enjoyed our meals and the atmosphere. The food was very delicious and the service was great for casual dining.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent Experience!!TravianeDined on 3/29/2014My 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- So Great at SoDoRitarnoDined on 3/29/2014Exceeding 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.LoveSpecial Features:
- Pleasant TreatPga12bDined on 3/26/2014We 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great place!TreeseDined on 3/26/2014This 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- SoDo is a nice restaurant.OpenTable Diner Since 2005VIPDined on 3/15/2014SoDo 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.
- Neighborhood hottieAlexDined on 3/7/2014Great Food, Excellent service! We had a lovely evening and plan on being back!Special Features:
- I was actually disappointedladybugDined on 3/6/2014I 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Consistently great food and serviceOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 3/1/2014Great food and service but noisy, hard to converse with a group larger than 4. But still one of of our favorites.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
