    Went here for a birthday brunch and everything was perfection. The food was out of this world, warm and hardworking staff, incredible ambiance and the boss nova band was wonderful. It's a bit pricey but worth every penny. Can't wait to go there again!

    The show was cool, good music and vibe but the food is TERRIBLE. The food was cold, bland/unseasoned and just nasty. Bad enough the menu was limited but what they did have was ALL bad. The price doesn't help either, I would recommend the show but DO NOT eat there

    Dined on 11/12/2014
    What a great evening of inspirational music and celebration in the name of our Lord and Savior. Excellent artists performed and when the man of the hour Bishop Hezekiah Walker hit the stage...it was truly amazing. I've attended numerous events at SOBs but this was my first gospel event and ranks as one of my favorite. SOBs was the perfect location since it's a smaller intimate spot where your so close to the artists. Great time and look forward to my next visit.

    Dined on 9/19/2014
    I made a 7:30 reservation for 6 and when I got to the club no one ever told me that if you make a reservation for 7, you don't have to pay an entrance fee, so I had to spend an extra $76 dollars plus each person in the dinner party had to buy at least one entree, club policy. Also if some members of the dinner party get there early, they will not seat you until all members arrive. I was with 2 senior citizens and thankfully the hostess was sensitive to this and gave us temporary seating. The group did a great job but only performed 4 songs and took a break saying they would return and we waited for 1hr and ended up leaving. I don't know why they did not return

    Salif Keita's concert was absolutely unprecedented, superb and SOBs sound system and lighting effects were fantastic! The bouncers inside the room were EXTREMELY RUDE! I can't believe how they boxed me and prevented me from getting closer to the stage at the end of the show, pretending I was drunk. In fact they said to an African lady that it was because I was white!!!..;) Thanks to her personal intervention I was able to reach the stage, dance 2 steps to greet Salif and go.

We ordered different appetizers and entrees and every plate was delicious. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The ambiance was festive and lively.

    I had a good time at the club for the music portion, but the waitress and food was not that great, the selections were okay needs a few more options to the menu, i had the ribs which were cold when they came to the table, i didnt even want to send them back so i picked at the food , my friend had some type of chicken bites which was alright, the waitress was very slow even with the club not being packed at the time I had dinner. then later I went to the bar for another drink and the bar maids were rude, slow and nasty, maybe that night it was a bad day for them SOB's use to be a great spot for dinner but they need to re-vamp a few things and make it Pop like it did years ago! so for now SOB"S should be called "Slow/Slopping on Business"!!

    An early brunch is quiet at SOB's but the food and service were good and the small combo who entertained the few diners were very good. Obviously, this place is much more lively at night and probably also at the later brunch times. It is a fun place which has been around for a long time and that speaks volumes in NYC.

    I made rervations for dinner at 10pm and was not let in. I was told theres a cover charge after 7pm. Charging a cover for dinner is a bit ghetto and the way the manager treated me was if I was illiterate and lower than him. That's disgusting. He kept telling me that I misunderstood or misread the site when I made reservations so when I showed him my phone he kept saying no I need to read & didn't bother looking at what I was showing him. He didnt care if my husband and I left. Just a low class establishment, so we left and went to meat packing instead.
