Soca Ratings and Reviews
We have eaten at Soca twice and both times the presentation, quality & taste of every dish has been outstanding. The desserts are also delicious and inventive. We are less pleased with the wine list, which is not as extensive as we’d like. The restaurant is beautifully decorated, every detail well thought out. This is an expensive restaurant, both for food and wine, so not a place for great value. But maybe this is a place for special occasions.
Great looking restaurant, service was lacking, we met the owner and she was great. The number one complaint was time. Everything took extremely long. We sat down at 9:10 pm and received our check past 11:00 pm. Appetizers took long, main course took forever and desert took long. Food overall was amazing. Would possibly go back just because the owner was so friendly.
Disappointing. The drinks are subpar, the pours are tiny, not what a restaurant should do when trying to attract clientele. We went for New Years so expectations were low to begin with. The food was just ok, but the clincher was the waiter letting me order a glass of champagne at 11:45 knowing they were giving out complimentary glasses 5 minutes later.
Love the white exterior of the place. the bar is fantastic and the drinks really good.!!!!!. We started with the pear salad which was delicious ,
and the steak was fantastic! One of the highlights is the delicious popover they serve to everyone and it is so much better than the foccaicia at felix!! Please don't take it off the menu!!!!! Good luck to you all and I hope you stay a long time. I will be back. Sherman Oaks is lucky to such great choices like this and my other favorite, Cafe Bizou.
Service was friendly and helpful. Menu is sparse and moderately expensive. My shrimp was excellent, more of a luncheon size, rather than dinner portion. Wines by the glass were pricey ( cheapest White $13), although selections were interesting. Corkage at $30 seemed expensive. There are some Very expensive steaks on the menu, and if you would like people walking by on Ventura Blvd. watch you enjoy an expensive meal?
The room is very open, but because the restaurant front is open air, somewhat cold feeling. They need more options on the menu asfar as entrees are concerned, or you build a "meal" in starters? Work in process?
I had been very much looking forward to eating at this restaurant and decided to celebrate my wife's birthday here. I was excited to finally have a high end steak house in Sherman Oaks, as there should be one. Unfortunately, everything was just okay. Nothing was that wrong or bad... it was all just okay. We each got a ribeye, but maybe should have shared the tomahawk special. The steaks should have been hotter, but were cooked nicely and tasted fine. The sides of mash potatoes, carrots, and long beans were unique and interesting but not necessarily tasty. My wife described her meal as not having a clear vision. Was it supposed to be Asian-inspired flavors or Italian? It was a bit too all over the place and nothing was amazing. I enjoyed the ambiance and the design that mixed steak house tropes with modern twists like orange booths rather than red. While I did not have a cocktail, the bar area looked cool and well-styled, featuring a hipster-looking bartender. Maybe it will be a happening bar spot? I sadly will have to wait for another attempt at a high end steakhouse in Sherman Oaks and have to continue to venture to Encino, Beverly Hills or Burbank for those special occasions.
Stumbled across this Restaurant on opentable and it is a winner. Beautiful-check. Warm, smart service-check. Delicious food-check. High-end without being stuffy-check. Love that you can be in and out in an hour (we were rushing for a movie), or linger for hours with a group
Best new restaurant in the valley! We've been waiting for this for all long time. The rib-eye is a 10! Try the dumplings-spicy and soft along with the lardon salad is refreshing while tasty.
We tried several of the Gin tastings which were fantastic.
We will be back regularly!
My 2nd time, both birthdays! Great service, very comfortable and not crazy so 5 ladies could yak for 3 hours. The birthday cake “killer”! Mouth watering choc mousse with gorgeous ganache and the beautiful penmanship in chocolate. Everyone was very happy with meal, I had 2-2bite tacos with homemade potatoes chips, odd pairing! I would forego the chips, that weren’t good and put another 2 bite taco, it would finish the plate and look more ”lunchy”. Had a great time!
Very comfortable atmosphere. Clean, modern settng with attentive staff. Wine list eclectic but average selection on pricey side. Food fresh and nicely presented but skimpy for price. Allowed us to keep our table for excessive long time for our friend lunch without pressure. Could be a repeat but probably not.
SOCA had great reviews on Yelp and we tried it for a birthday dinner. It was a bit noisy but it was a Saturday night. The service was very good the ambiance quite lively. The food was a bit salty and the portions were on the small side. Mostly, there wasn't a large selection and most diners seemed to order steak and/or seafood. I probably wouldn't go back because the prices are quite high.
We got such a welcome from John, the bartender was a doll. We both ordered the Cobb salad. I preferred mine to be chopped extra fine and was served in a lovely white bowl. The bread was light, tasty and warm. We didn’t explore too much and will go back and try something different. Special birthday dessert was the “Killer” chocolate mousse with ganache and beautiful writing. Small menu for lunch but a variety of choices. It was quite comfortable. Nice to have an airy fresh place for lunch.
We really enjoyed our meal. The ambiance, service and cuisine are overall very good. We have had two different steaks here that were both respectively under and overcooked. That is only complaint. Hoping they get their temps right on the steaks eventually, everything else is really great!
Not mediterranean food. . .not Peruvian either. Maybe advertised as such, as several preparations may qualify. Steaks, seafood, somewhat limited menu.
Liked it, but thought pricey and I'm well-traveled to major cities. Need reservations.
Nice ambiance. But too many other restaurants to try to rush back.
We had a delicious dinner. Loved the duck confit salad, pork belly appetizer and the amazing Opah entree. We enjoyed a variety of cocktails and appreciated a bit of helpful suggestions from our server. Actually, our server, Ben, was such a delight! He was friendly, knowledgeable about the menu and had perfect timing with coursing and checking on our needs. Soca is a great addition to the Sherman Oaks food scene.
