Very nice place, offers valet parking (Curtis is his name). Very friendly and professional staff. The menu offered a variety of good choices. The scallops and pasta were outstanding. The scallops were huge and numerous and the homemade pasta complemented them well. We especially appreciated the waiter offering us advice on a cheaper, better wine choice. Highly recommend. Price is upscale but worth it. There is also a cheaper bar menu.

As tourists, we stumbled upon "So" via the Open Table App. We were in town to visit the Clinton Library and found this restaurant to be a short drive from the touristy places near the library. We are so glad we found "So". We sat at a table next to the window at the front of the restaurant and had a delicious dinner. The Caprese salad was perfect, mussels were prepared in an unusual way with beer, almonds, spices and gruyere cheese. The Sea Bass was excellent. We wish we would have had room for their signature dessert.

SO is on of Little Rock's Gems. A great place to take friends, everyday dining as well as an elegant dinning experience. Superb staff and Veo is back. What else could you want. I do miss the Halibut. The oysters are fantastic especially the Blue Point. I found a small pearl in mine last evening.

Went there for Valentine's Day. Everything we ate was delicious and the service was excellent! That night, the menu was set so we didn't get to order off of the full menu. Next time we will, though. The oyster appetizer was oh-sooo delicious!

Overpriced for what was delivered. Understand it was a special day, but it wasn’t worth the cost. Appetizer was frozen, literally frozen, and had to be sent back. Simply not a quality experience.

Don't trust the hours on Opentable. They are wrong. Apparently they don't even check to see when they have reservations or adjust their weekday hours.

Our experience at So was outstanding. The food was creative and incredible, the service was top notch and the restaurant itself was pleasantly quiet while at the same just enough ambient music for us to be able to converse privately. The staff was genuinely excited about the menu, and our dishes were expertly executed. We will definitely be going back to So sooner than later.

The wait staff has some work to do. We had to ask twice to place our orders. The duck was chewy. Seafood fondue was divine. There is a street light that shines very brightly in the back room. Some window covering is needed to help remedy the blinding.

Very disappointed in the small menu!!! I understand scaling things back but it did not represent very many palates. We struggled with what we might order. 1 beef, 1 seafood, and 1 vegan option???? Really that’s it’s???? Had I seen it prior I would have canceled our NYE reservations!!!!! The worst part is the food was not very good. The appetizers were the best part of the meal, and they were great!!!! Seafood bisque had a weeks worth of salt, the prime rib was average and that’s including the Las Vegas buffets prime rib. Desert was pulled off a pre made rack!

Although we frequent So more often, this night was another of my family's Christmas eve's at So (now a running >5year tradition). Used Open Table to make the reservation, which is essentially early for a holiday. They were very obliged to honor my request for the "front room by the window", which is much better than the back enclosed patio. Service was a little confusing at first, but then we figured out who out actual waiter was. Wine recommendation was great and actually a value. Food was AMAZING! They've recently re-done their menu, but will still prepare any of their classics if you ask. The Sea Bass was the best I've ever had and I've ordered it all over the country. Steak was perfectly cooked (and my son is picky). Oh and the Chocolate sack is always fun to share !!
Can't say enough good things about this classic neighborhood gem! Hope to spend many more Christmas Eve's and other nights with them

My husband and I recently ate st So to celebrate his fiftieth birthday. I had let the restaurant know in advance of the occasion so our server made everything perfect from her suggestions on the main course selections, the upgraded wine (the one I chose, the restaurant was out of) to the free celebratory dessert. It’s rare to find, in my opinion, both great food and service and So did not disappoint.

While there were many tables available in the front two rooms of the restaurant, we were seated at the very back room with just one other table who was finishing up when we were seated, so we were basically alone. Kind of odd. The wine selection is extensive and food/service were great. This place is on the expensive side, but the quality of the food matches the price point. All in all, a great little neighborhood spot. Next time, we'll hopefully be seated in at a better table.
