I Had too sit by the door it was cold I asked to move to back and was told no. Arrangements should be made if requested overall food and vibe and drinks were good. Customer service could be better
I was celebrating my Birthday with my Sister. We had a blast, the food was on point and the service was great. We'll definitely be back!
As my very first experience to Soco it was not what I thought it would be. Once I entered into the establishment the noise just kept raising. This is definitely not the place for someone who want to have an intimate and quiet lunch or brunch dinner. Typically I do not eat out in noisy places moderate noise is fine but it was super noisy. This I was told is common. Let's talk about the food I had the Clinton Hill omelette the eggs tasted like egg beaters and not fresh eggs. I could be totally wrong but that's what it taste like. I did not like it that I was served my food and it was not piping-hot. The potatoes were not hot the fried onions were not hot nothing on the plate was hot it was less than lukewarm. my potatoes should have been hot so I ckuld have enjoyed the Heat and the flavor. I also had macaroni and cheese which was serve in a skillet individual skillet and the skillet was not piping hot a little warm the flavor was good . I will re-visit once more and I hope they get it right. I also suggest you guys separate the indoors from the outdoor noise where if you come inside you'll have less noise versus outside. When it comes to Summertime I know that would probably be a problem but perhaps something can be done about that everyone doesn't want to eat in a noisy environment. As for my waiter, his name was Aaron he was professional he was comical and he did his job well. I will continue to rate this place as I try a different dish upon my next visit. The prices are a little high for what non-meat items they serve. As far as items that include meat for the type of meat such as chicken sausage I thought those prices were hi as well. A lot of hoopa, I don't see the reason but maybe because it's people between the ages of 25 + 40 who are excited about a establishment that could be considered trendy. I believe I would have enjoyed the potatoes more had they been hot.
The lady manager was a bit rude when she saw that we have a stroller. Our daughter was sleeping so
We can’t take her out of it. She told me
That I have to take her out of the stroller and carry her because they’d don’t have another table.
I wish I could give the service 10 stars. Our server, Aaron, was personable, appropriately attentive and informative. He made the dining experience enjoy more enjoyable. We will definitely be back!
The manager Sean made my experience there weird. He watched me the entire time and interrupted me while eating to tell me he needed the table for a party after my lovely server already let me know. Overall everything else was really good. I would’ve enjoyed it more if the manager wasn’t on me like a hawk.
Pros: tasty iced tea, catfish delicious, server and hostess were nice
Cons: online menu was outdated so I was very disappointed that the two items I went there for were NOT being served
The steak is a poor cut, low quality but disguised in good flavor.
Patio seating had a heater but was drafty due to high wind
Overall, it wasn’t a horrible experience I will try them again for brunch but I’m not rushing.
We arrived was seated, we orders but our food took 50 mins to come my young son was getting very antsy because he was ready to eat my two oldest daughters which we were celebrating her 18th Birthday got Annoyed due to the long wait for the food.
The server was very nice and outgoing. Gave us good recommendations and was very attentive.
We were celebrating my wife's birthday and were very pleased with Soco. All meals served were on point. We had herb marinated steak, cat fish, and veggie lasagna for entrees. The service was good and the ambiance was great! Additionally, the music was played at the right volume, we were able to converse without having to shout. The room temperature was a little uneven it varied between too warm or to chilly. The food took awhile to come out but was delicious! I will definitely return to Soco to try some of the the other dishes on the menu.
Wonderful. Always enjoy my food. Especially the chicken and waffles, along with the macaroni and cheese.
Everything from the atmosphere to the food to the staff was awesome. Definitely going back there again.
We had an amazing time celebrating my partner’s bday, my best friend’s new job position, and my cousin’s upcoming medical procedure. Everyone was extremely friendly and super engaged with our group. Definitely not our first time here, but it is definitely a memorable experience to add to the roster!
Seating took forever. Waitress confused our order twice. No steak knives with steak. Most important, hostess was rude and did not recognize my reservation.
Do not. I repeat do not go to this restaurant on The Weekend. It’s way too crowded and the staff cannot handle the crowd. We waited so long for our food and drinks it wasn’t even funny. I ordered the salmon and it was wack. It was the smallest piece you can find and it lacked flavor. The mashed sweet potatoes were boring. The best thing about my meal was the corn bread. I usually like this restaurant and I go frequently but something was way off Saturday night. I will never go back on the weekend.
I always love coming to SoCo the service is more than amazing.
Always a great time at Soco. Great food, great atmosphere, great vibe.
Food was great the atmosphere was cozy service was slow but it was worth the wait and that's understandable because of places pack. First time there but definitely not the last.
Great as always! My family comes all the time and we are always pleased
Not a good place for family outings. Food is good. Gratuity automatically included in bill. Not good for family members under 18 years old.
Good food and our server, Rob, was very helpful and attentive. Free on street parking, given that it was Sunday. Nice neighborhood for window shopping. Looking forward to returning to Soco.
Birthday brunch for boyfriend
The food was amazing, we arrived 30 mins early and we were still seated ahead of time. The service was great, food tasted delicious, the outdoor seating was gorgeous and the drinks were great! My only issue was that our glasses were dirty - looked like there was old lipstick on it.. at least 3 of them. I just turned it to the other side and drank out of it but it made me wonder just how clean the glasses were.
I was visiting New York and heard great things about Soco so I decided to check it out for brunch. I really enjoyed my visit. I showed up a little past my reservation time and was seated right away, in probably the best spot, out on the covered patio. The lighting out there was everything! Service was great, food was pretty good. Our table ordered the mac and cheese as a starter and it was amazing. We also got a round of cornbread for the table with our Yelp check-in, which I appreciate. I ordered the chicken and waffles and I was bit disappointed. One, I wish the waffle could come as plain and not red velvet. Two, the chicken was on the bland side in my opinion. I wasn't expecting that because so many people raved about that dish. If I'm ever back on Soco, I'll be sure to try something new.
Amazing comfort food!! I love going for brunch.
Awesome experience. The food and service was great! I visited from out of town and will definitely go back when I am in the area!!!!
I had a great dining experience at Soco. It did take some time for us to get seated even my party arrived within the 15 minute grace period, but there were a lot of customers so I understood why. I had the salmon and it was amazing. Overall it was great and I would definitely come back to eat with friends or for date night.
Excellent atmosphere! Perfectly price! I definitely recommend it!
Great Vibes, Good service and Good Food.
The employees were nice and on top of their job . The music was great ! Not to loud and not to low so i was able to make conversation. The Mac and cheese is great and also their drinks. The setting is mazing . can't wait to go back to sit outdoors in warmer weather.
I really enjoyed my dinner. The Salmon dish was delicious and I love the ambiance.
We got there about 30 minutes early and were seated right away. Our server was kind enough to take our photo. The host/concierge was an elegant tall lady who helped us make our menu selection and checked on us periodically. We even saw Mr. and Mrs. Daly come through the door but they did not stay long! (At least we think we saw them..lol. Thank you SoCoBk for making our 13 year anniversary a night we will always remember!
Services was Excellent. Our waiter was very friendly with a great personality and the food was amazing!
Great ambiance, accomodating when orders where wrong/bartender only gave a friend half a glass of wine. Food is great but pricey. Entertainment usually on point but artist there the last time i went wasnt great and sound system sucked
amazing experience. can't wait to return. delicious food and exceptional service.
I love the service and the people that work over ther are really nice and always taking care of the guest. I want to thanks the receptionist and Robert the waiter for there attention.
Had a great time , food was good,staff was very polite, it waz my pleasure to have the opportunity to be in this establishment
My family and I really enjoyed Soco, the vibe and the food was A+. We will definitely recommend the restaurant.We will be back.
This was my first time going there and I was pleasantly surprised. As soon as I walked in they greeted me warmly. My date was late so just sat at the bar. The GM greeted me and was very kind. Now the food was amazing. Nice portions, absolutely delicious and affordable. On complaint although the jazz trio was great it made it hard to have a conversation. Especially since I was seated next to them. Had my date and I speaking loudly to hear one another. That being said I highly recommend this restaurant and am planning my next visit. Nothing like good and creative soul food.
Went there for the 1st time for my bday, I had the chicken & waffles, it was delicious. Three best I've had so far, i think their signature dish is mac & cheese. I had some it was ok, definetly would recommend this place..
