  • "Excellent food, friendly service, great band. Can't go wrong with the Sunday brunch!"
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "First timer on 7/5 and possibly the last! Bottom line: food and music were disappointing. While I was not expecting high quality food, the appetizers (sampler plate & heart of palms salad) did not encourage us to continue ordering entrees. Enough said! We were looking forward to a night of dancing. Because we had early dinner reservations, there was no cover charge. That was good since the Samba in the City "band" was a flop! Not sure what they were playing. The dance floor filled only AFTER they took a break. The advertised 8:30 show began at 9:00pm. Band played until 9:40 then went for a "quick break" and did not return until 10:45pm. Automatic 18% gratuity for 2!! Why?? KUDOS to the servers who tried very hard to make things right."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Very expensive with good but not great food. I did the groupon, and we couldn't even get the dessert because the meal is large and they give a large portion of various types of bread before. The drinks are good but I was disappointed they didn't have any Brazilian beers. The music was great, the dance performance was great, the decor is great, and the patrons were all having fun. A great place but don't go just for the food."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We had a very nice brunch at SOBs, great service, amazing food and sangria! I wish the music was more lively though but the band was great and played mellow Bossa Nova tunes."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Perfect for every occasion. Met my first date there in the corner of the room. We spoke for hours, listened to great music and connected."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "The band was great, but the sound was so loud and so poorly mixed that I was glad to leave when we finished dinner. It's too loud to talk. They had a fun salsa lesson beforehand (but get there before it starts to avoid a cover charge, even if you have dinner reservations). The dance floor was full with some wonderful salsa dancing, and an enthusiastic crowd. The food is unremarkable. Go for the dancing. Maybe take earplugs."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "The night was nice. They had tables available but I don't know what happened to our OpenTable reservation. Good thing that we got there early. Food was good. The music was loud in the club but we had a good time."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "the restaurant had very good food quality, prepared over time (not a rushed job), so lots of time to drink Sangria, and later to dance. a perfect birthday spot, especially for a group - but the couple next to us was enjoying it just the two of them, and they lingered more than two hours. sometimes you lose, sometimes you win when picking restaurants you dont know. In this case, we won."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "I attended for the Mali Music concert. The ambience was great, the staff was very friendly and professional. Usually customer is optional and you are treated however they feel like treating you, but SOB's was awesome."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "Our waitress seemed to be having a hard time managing her tables. We had to ask for water several times as well as refills on our drinks. I asked for my steak to be cooked medium well and I received a very well done steak. When I brought this to the attention of the waitress all she said was sorry which is totally unacceptable- she did not offer to get me another or comp it off of my bill. I also asked for more bread for our table and was told that there was no more, which is also unacceptable. The music was good and the ambiance was fine, but the service was less than mediocre and I don't know that I would recommend this place or return."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "This was my first time in SOB's & at a album listening party, so I didn't have any idea of what to expect, except Kelly Price live! So I made the dinner reservation for 4 without hesitation. We had a great time. The DJ & the music were Great! The only complaint would be each song could've played longer before getting mixed into another song. It seemed like one verse & a new song was mixed in but every song was a great selection! Kelly Price was fabulous but didn't sing as much as I expected. My sister reminded me it's a album 'listening' party & I also took into consideration Ms. Price recently losing her sister... I appreciated her performance even more! The food was very good too. Overall 4 out of 5 stars!"
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "My wife and I were looking for a last minute boozy brunch and ended up finding SOBs. To our pleasant surprise when we walked in, there was a lounge singer and band belting out some great live Brazilian music! The sangria was delicious and didn't stop coming to our table. The food was good, but nothing to write home about. Most of the great time we had due to the servers. The servers had fun personalities and got the idea that we were there for the booze more than the brunch. Overall, great experience and we would recommend trying them out."
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "Saw a great band here called Alma Tropicalia. Made my evening!"
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Great fun. Our meal was authentically Brazilian. The music that night, from the north of Bihia, wonderful. "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "I took my mom to SOB to celebrate her 60th birthday and she had a great time.Mom was very disappointed at first that she didn't a huge celebration;but after SOB she was very happy,she stated that she felt that everyone celebrated with her. Will definately recommend and reserve there again."

  • "Came from England to see the Blastmaster KRS ONE! Fantastic evening great gig and great food. Sounded fantastic and the staff were very helpfull in organising the night. Thoroughly recommend. "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "They served hard bread & butter, the calamari wasn't hot, the greens with the steak had no flavor, but the drinks were strong & that's always a plus. Despite the food I loved the performances & would keep going based on that."
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "Food and drinks were good! Service was fast and efficient."
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "Food- was lunch not brunch Host/ waiter- was rude and non-customer service friendly. He told us that we had too much bread and is we asked for more he would change us...what, was he taking leftover bread home or something we spent over 500 dollars and we are customers who write reviews and had at least 10 friends each ask how brunch was at SOB's (that 130 people that may not come to the establishment. At least not for Sunday Brunch) This was my second time at SOB's and I would only come for dinner or nightlife. Never again for the brunch"
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "I've been to this place many times before, and I love it for the performances. This is the perfect venue for intimate concerts. I don't dislike the food, but It's nothing to brag about. Service is good."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "I went to SOBs for my birthday celebration n was pleasantly surprised. I had a great time. There was no wait time which was a plus. The food was superb. Sangria seemed a bit watered down. They seem to have one waitress n this posed a problem... The young lady tending to us had several other tables which she was catering too and in my opinion took away from her being as friendly as the waiters/waitresses in other establishments. She seemed flustered for the most part of our dining. The show was good n the after show Caribbean Fever was awesome. Music was on point."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "The only part i liked sort of was the band . The food was not good , the service was not good , and for the amount of money i spent there that night i should of recieved something a thousand times better !!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "When looking for something special to do for Mardi Gras, knew SOBs would be the right place and it did not disappoint! The music was great, the food was good and the crowd was very festive .I'm really glad we went there!"
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "Always has good food and the live music makes the atmosphere here. Just always so hefty with the door chair on top of the minimum for dinner and drinks. I was not aware this time that we had to meet the minimum and pay the fee for entry even though we had reservations. Otherwise great food, service and music."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The food and drink is pricey. The venue got so crowded people were standing next to our table watching the stage. We had a groupon that required us to be seated before 7:30pm on a Friday that the main show started at 10pm. There was a complementary salsa dancing class open to anyone at 7:30. Needless to say, we could not stay there for so long until the real show. We left at 8:30pm. The dinner was okay, service was attentive but we will not come back if we have a choice of better dinner and show time somewhere. The restaurant could have done better to attract new customers by giving a deal out with no date and time control. Still recommend if eating with a live show on is entertaining for you."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "SOB's is a place to go when you want to party. They also have food. The full menu was not available on thursday night, so i was not able have what I really wanted. I had their sampler which was very bland and dry. It come with two dips to add flavor where there was none. Go for the party. Eat somewhere else. The also don't itemize the check, you only see the total."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "We enjoyed the show, food, first performance . Just a personal preference I don't like male musician on stage using profanity, that was my turn off, so we left as soon as we were done with our meal. Thanks"
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "Sobs is a great place to have dinner and do some dancing. On sat Rio All Star was performing and they were great. They also had Brazilian dancers which help lead the crowd into dance and it created a fun time for all. The food was good but the menu was limited and some of the choose were not even available, so it made it hard deciding what you wanted to eat."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "I really enjoyed my night out at SoB's. There was an event that night and the live music and food was amazing."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "Good service is hard to come by these days, but I was impressed with how attentive the staff was, very friendly, and they did not miss a beat. When my glass was low getting low or my plate was empty it was like they had a alarm to notify them because they were right on time. Even when it started to get busy, they were still attentive. Nice experienced, I will be back"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I loved the ambience of this place and the food was okay too. Had a great time. Elle Varner was the main event for the night and she did excellent!:) I would definitely go back."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Great atmosphere to pay respects to the late great Bob Marley. Open atmosphere with comfortable dance floor in front of an ample size stage. Food was very good the server had the right vibe. If your in a hurry, your at the wrong address. Positive vibrations all around. Ill be back with more family and friends, this time was just my daughter and I."
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "I enjoyed the atmosphere of this restaurant. Friendly staff and good food."
    Dined on 1/28/2014
  • "The dance floor is very small. The Lula spears and guacamole appetizer were small and bland tasting. The feiojada entree portion was very small and the beef had a lot of fat. The food was very expensive considering the small portions."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "SOB is a nice spot to go for live music. We had a groupon for food and a pitcher of sangria. The band was excellent. We were dancing all night. Would recommend to my friends for sure."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "I went to SOBs within a two week span. In both occassions it was to see a show. Service and food was delicious. I sat in different areas both times, time in front of the restaurant and second in rhe back towards the rear exit and kitchen. We had to sit with our coats, hats, and scarf. Gloves would have been acceptable but hard to handle a fish taco with. I was really cold in that area making it uncomfortable. I felt like I was outside. Despite this I would come back. Being able to see a live show with a headline act for under $50 you can't beat it. I just won't sit in the subzero area."
