Soco Ratings and Reviews
Very disheartening to have an improper greeting, especially after traveling 2.5 hours, in a snowstorm to get here. I'd heard such great things about this place, but the initial encounter absolutely took the wind out of our sales. Arrived at 5:45 for a 6p reservation. At 5:50, I was told by the hostess that my wife and I would be seated promptly at 6p...awesome, I thought to myself! Unfortunately, 25 minutes later, we were still standing in the front of the restaurant, without even an update. Frustration started to mount as I literally counted 26 open tables, and still no word from the hostess, or countless members of the staff, who continuously walked past us without even acknowledging that we were standing there. I approached the hostess, and we were seated immediately. Why should I have to express frustration to be seated when there are 26 open tables?!?!
Now to the food...everything that we had was really good, but not good enough the make up for the horrible service.
Started with mussels & a side of cornbread. The andouille sausage & cream sauce took the mussels over the top.
Entrees were the lobster shrimp & grits, and the short rib. Both were delicious.
Please do better with your front of the house, Soco. Your food deserves to be served alongside a better overall dining experience.
Soco is a hidden surprise on Myrtle Ave. The interior Is sleek, the ambiance is relaxing and the food is delicious! A great place to meet up, drink and be merry. The wine selection reflects its ambience. I recommend Soco to all my friends as the perfect place to sit back and chill!!
Fun atmosphere- cool vibe- great southern comfort food- best Mac and cheese!
Variety of cocktails and good beers on tap.
Make a reservation for quick seating.
Need to better control temp, sound and lighting- keep changing over the course of time we were there.
Great neighborhood location- will return!
There was no wait when we arrived for our 1pm reservation, which was great. The waiter was awesome. The chicken and waffles was not what i expected; the chicken was undercooked (very pink inside), but the catfish was very fresh and good. The Creole seafood gumbo, macaroni and cheese and collard greens were amazing. I will definitely revisit and recommend Soca to friends and family.
Nice, friendly atmosphere service was a bit slow but it was packed. My red velvet waffle was no bueno. The chicken, lobster and macaroni my sisters had was great! Clean. Waitress was helpful, music could have been louder. Cool, chic, and love the Brooklyn mural!
I went to Soco on 10/28/2017 for My Birthday. My first impression was that the atmosphere was nice and cozy (quiet) for a Saturday night. I liked it1 the only down side was the service. Unfortunately our server was not very attentive to us ( a table of three women). After a group of handsome men sat next to us we became an after thought. At first I thought well she is just trying her best to keep up now a total of 7 people. But when the Men said, "We were seated after you but we received our food and drinks before you!" I noticed that I was over exaggerating. So much so that I told her that it was my Birthday and I wanted to see the dessert menu after our meals. Once we finish eating she brought the check to us! My thoughts, "I guess they don't have dessert". Overall my experience was great the food was tasty and fresh. Next time I wont sit next to visually distracting guess......lol
The food there is amazing! I get the sausage and grits and cornbread. They have a sweet butter sauce on top. The service is VERY slow (we waited 1 hour for our food on a Sunday evening). They took an additional 15 minutes to get the last plate out so one of us had to wait. They BLAST music so loud you can't hear anything but this is the BEST place for comfort food!!
It took 25 minutes to be seated with a reservation. When my party was finally seated it took another 25 minutes to be given water and then another 15 minutes until we were greeted by our waitress. Appetizers took over 30 minutes to come to the table and the food runner almost gave our apps to another table. Entrees also took over 30 minutes. Wasn’t happy with the service, but if you don’t mind waiting, the food is delicious. Don’t plan to return unless it’s a pick up order.
