Nice place but the wait to be seated even with a reservation and for the food is very long and they need a lil more choices for food but overall the food was great.

I went to Soco this past Saturday to celebrate my wedding anniversary with my wife. We got married down in New Orleans and wanted to connect to that special day through the food Soco served.

When we got seated that is when things took a turn for the worse. We sat for over an hour and a half and not one person came to us. We watched as other who came in after us were served and gotten their food before we did. We tried getting a servers attention and nothing. When we were about to leave my wife started staring at a waitress helping the table next to us and she came over to ask us if anyone is helping us. We politely said no and thank you for coming over. 15 mins later we ordered our food. About 45 mins pass, and i am about to go speak to the manager but the table next to me went first. The waitress then tells us their machine went down in the kitchen and they never received our order. At this point i am really upset, respectfully i ask when is the food going to come out. We were assured it would be out in 10 mins. 10 mins pass and the general manager comes over about the broken machine. When i told him we have been here since 7:30 and it is now 9:50 that this is redic, especially since this is our anniversary. Not one person came over to us for over an hour. He apologized and went to see what he can do. While i appreciate the general managers willing to help at this point, i took it more as being handled. He never came back but instead sent the waitress over to buy us a round. At that point we just got up and left. On my way out the general manager apologized, but nothing they did that day was correct.

While the food looked delicious, I do not recommend this place. Thank you for making my anniversary memorable.

After being in NYC for a week, we finally found impeccable service. Being from the Deep South, hospitality is very valuable. The waitress, food runners, and all were very attentive, knowledgable, and nice! Our waitress was very good, she was well spoken, knowledgable of the menu, and sweet! I cannot remember her name, but she was a pretty young lady, smiles a lot, has a beautiful gap in her teeth, she wore a gorgeous long scarf around on her head.

As an appetizer I had the red beans and rice and a side of the Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread w/ sweet butter. For dinner I had the lobster, shrimp, and white cheese grits-- which were absolutely amazing! My friend had the Salmon dish with the sweet potatoes and green beans, she liked her food, but she did mention that both the sweet potatoes and green beans could've used a little salt & pepper. I really appreciated this visit at Soco, true Southern Cuisine. I would definitely visit again!

Great food although we ordered the chicken sandwich, chicken and waffles and the catfish all of them tasted them same.

The macaroni and cheese was amazing!

Great vibe

The food here never dissappoints. The drinks were amazing and the service was wonderful as usual. I'm SO glad that they did away with their old "No hats" policy that included women as well... that was a huge deterrent for me returning for a very long time.

Everything was great until we were asked to move to the bar so that they can seat someone at our table. Word to the wise, once you eat you lose your seat

The food was different than the last time I visited. For some reason, the buttermilk chicken and waffles are now spicy? The waffle itself no longer tastes like it used to either. I've ordered this dish twice before.

I won't be coming back since the food has changed.

Soco is a really nice restaurant. The ambiance, food and drinks was good but the best thing about my dining experience was the serving staff, they were the best ever. My server was very attentive, provided great recommendations and made sure we received our food in a timely matter. I was very impressed that the other servers also made sure that our used napkins were removed from our table, and our water glass was always filled. This is very rare. I had a great dining experience.

Everything we had was delicious. The staff was very welcoming and attentive. Every time our glasses were low or we spoiled a napkin, the staff came right away to remove it without us asking. It was a great dining experience.

The vegetable lasagna and jalapeno corn bread was quite tasty. Those dining with me enjoyed their meals as well. It took about 35-40 minutes to get our food, but we were very content with the taste.

Food was ok but I guess you only get 1hour to eat, and that feels like a rush. I don’t like to feel rushed out of a restaurant. Other than that the workers and service was great. Beautiful place and nice atmosphere.

The mussels were really good but the marinated steak and the gumbo was lacking. The wings were a little soggy. I ate the steak only because it was 3:30 in the evening and I didn't eat all day.

My second or third time visiting Soco. Food was good, decent crowd although the music was a bit loud at times. I’d go back for brunch as I’m assuming the dinner would be too crowded for my liking .

I loved everything about this place. The hostess was awesome and so was the waitress. This was my first time at SoCo and I love, love, love it. The food was fresh and tasty. The drinks were delicious and I was very pleased. I'm extremely picky and I work in the HR field in the hospitality industry so I'm very critical. I will be back there for sure with my friends and family.
