The food was fantastic. Their mac n cheese is out of this world. You can tell it’s a favorite because every table had one. The energy was very high and guests were very happy to be there. The music is bumping, the drinks are expertly made, and the service was incredibly thoughtful. My date and I both enjoyed our meals and are looking forward to our next visit.

Server forgotten most items we ordered and didn’t write anything down, we had to remind him. Pork chops were overcooked and very tough.

Since I’m so wary of crowds these days, I loved that I was sat away from everyone—and even those who were sat near each other had decent distance between their tables. Service was fast; waiters and bartender were attentive; and the food was delicious. I’ll definitely be returning!

Arrived a little late the hostess greeted our party and checked reservation. He informed us that it might take a minute to seat us do to the restaurant being a little busy (Sunday Brunch), we opted to sit at the side high table instead of waiting on for the table he was trying to seat us at. Our waiter arrived with water and informed us he was trying to locate menus, he came back a few moments later with our drinks and menus. The food was AMAZING we had a few items off the menu but the MAC & CHEESE, The RED VELVET WAFFLES & The F-QUE WINGS stood out the most. Everyone was nice only thing the food did take a while to come out which we had to ask the waiter how much longer. Overall great restaurant and can't wait to try again. 😊

My experience at Soco was really good. I was running 15 min behind on my reservation and they were extremely accommodating. Each course of food took about 20-30 min to come out which was fine because I knew it wasn’t just sitting in the back. We ordered the salmon cakes, house wings, Mac & cheese, fish & grits and omelette. Everything was good. The grits were the star of the show. I am sure those may have been the best grits I’ve had. I would definitely return.

The portion sizes have gone down, but the prices have gone up. The chicken pieces are smaller. The mac n cheese isn't as creamy as it used to be. I understand with the pandemic times are hard, but I don't think the taste of food should suffer. Came all the way from Houston to reminisce on SoCo and was left slightly underwhelmed.

I had a great time. The waiter was amazing and hilarious! The mussels were delicious, the rest of the food ordered was ok. The Bellini was pretty good. We sat outside, which was nice, however we were unable to hear the music. An extra speaker should be placed outdoors.

I would NEVER, NEVER, NEVER patronize this place in life ever again. I went there yesterday 7/27 to celebrate my birthday. The drinks were terrible, we sent back two sets of drinks because they tasted horrible. The food was horrible, either it lacked seasoning or it was to spicy to enjoy. I had the Cajun creole pasta (way to spicy), my friend had the gumbo (way to spicy), one of my cousin’s had the blackened salmon (lacked seasoning). The server kept messing up our order. Two of my friends food was brought out after everyone else at the table was finished eating. This restaurant was highly recommended so I asked about the chef, I was informed that chef was off and the sous chef was cooking. The sous chef needs to go back to culinary school. The only good thing was that the manager took all of the entrees off the bill. Needless to say I will be doing a “do over” for my birthday dinner tonight at a better restaurant. Oh, I chose one star because I couldn’t chose none. The restaurant should receive NO stars

The waitress advised that the restaurant does not carry ranch dressing and they ran out of all garnishments such as lemon or lime wedges. The caesar dressing was watered down and tasted off.

The food was not that great. I used to go there a lot but it seems like the restaurant fell off ….the chicken was not cleaned probably because there were feathers from the chicken still left on my food………..and we ate an hour and 15 minutes after being seated

horrible waiting service. Literally everything took long to come. The menu, the drinks, the food, the to go containers, the check. They kept bringing the wrong orders to our table.


Which is very disappointing because the food was good. We literally felt unseen because we had to kept calling different waiting staff members to our table.

Waiter took about 30 minutes to finally get to our table after me asking someone “who is serving us because no one came to our table yet “ . It was freezing cold so you can’t really enjoy yourself and your date but the FOOD WAS AMAZING !

Finally returned after years away and it did not disappoint even post-Covid. The energy was electric and the food was delicious. Seeing so many Black and Brown persons happily enjoying each other’s company while breaking bread was reaffirming.

The Service was extremely disappointing (poor). Our food was extremely hot from the oven, but tasteless. Our waitress forget to put my girlfriend's meal in. We had to ask for utensils and napkins. We never receive a refill on water. Four out of the five of us received our food but not my friend. The waitress had to ask my friend what did she order then she was told that they had no more Mac & cheese .. mind you other customers came in after us and received Mac and cheese. I will never patronize this establishment again.
