                              The menu has changed and updated menu is not good, it is more like a pubs menu, before they use to have lamb and chicken options

                              Seemed like the restaurant was short-staffed but I appreciate that they were doing the best they could. Had to wait in line to get to my table and when the hostess took me to the table she said was ready- it was still dirty and needed to be cleaned. The Servers took a while to come to our table also. Main pro of this Restaurant: convenient location for a Jays Game meal. However Food was average - I had the brunch bowl and was underwhelmed. It was also kind of pricy for what you get.

                              That patio was so nice with the CN Tower view. Service was excellent and very fast. I also enjoyed the brunch menu. The only thing I’d recommend is that they clean off the table before seating guests.

                              Food was not very good at all. My eggs in my salmon Eggs Benedict were very overcooked. The english muffin was soggy and not toasted. I likely would have asked for my eggs to be redone but our server never checked on us after a runner brought our food. It also took me going inside and asking a hostess to get my bill after 20 min of trying to get her attention. Overall, it was over $100 for brunch on Mother's Day for a less than pleasurable experience and I would not recommend it.

                              I was there for lunch during a convention at the MTCC. I was there early & didn’t realize how early it was so brunch was still on. I had the chicken & waffle. It was, however necessary to order extra syrup & the addition of the ‘fruit cup’ was delicious.

                              Pizza were great, service was Mediocre, messed up on food order (allergies not considered after being told) and drink order. Going to chalk it up to coming out of Covid. I would try again.

                              The menu was boring. The food was not great. The service was good but not overly friendly. We were getting together with friends before the ball game. Would not return again.

                              Had an amazing time at SOCO before we went to a concert. Always love the convenience of the restaurant, the food, the ambiance and the service. Connie was our server and she was absolutely spectacular! She was attentive, fun and so full of energy. She made the experience one to remember!

                              Although the menu was small, the selection was excellent. We tend to look for healthier options, and SOCO fit our needs. The Vegan option was excellent, although we are not vegan. Our Server(s) Micheal and Ann-Marie( in training) were excellent. Micheal even steered us in a direction of a red wine, which was our first time trying, but defiantly not our last. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

                              Food quality was average. Similar to Kelseys. Very noisey open atmosphere. Hard to communicate clearly in this environment.

                              Nice brunch great fast service pricey but considering where it is located it's expected. Waitress was quick and efficient. Food came fast. No specials on mimosa. Steak and eggs with chimchuri sauce was tender but no AAA beef. I loved my benny

                              We were there for my son’s birthday before the Raptors game. The staff were great but the ambiance was lacking. Felt a little like a food court. No placemats or coasters. Just a bare table. The food was excellent however.

                              Soco has become our go to Scotiabank arena event, dinner place, for the past 3 years. It has something for everyone in term if it's menu. The Tuna Poke is my go to dish. It's always fresh and delicious. The service staff are all very friendly and curtious. The atmosphere is very relaxed with a slight note of sophistication! Enjoy!

                              Thank you for accommodating my substitution requests. Overall food is ok. The fruit cup tho wasn’t fresh, strawberries were bad. The service was nice and polite. Unfortunately felt like the place could use more staff as it took a bit long to get little things like spoon or milk. Also, gets noisy closer to the noon time of day.

                              Disappointed in recent menu change. Been going faithfully this year for arguably the best hamburger in Toronto, the Maple Bacon Cheeseburger. They removed it from the menu and replaced it with a very different burger that will not bring me back. Chef Michael, what were you thinking? Listen to your wait staff and your most loyal customer, and bring it back.

                              Three out of the four of us left our appetizers and our dinners almost untouched. The food was truly bad. The only thing that was eaten was the salmon, which was “ok”. The other three of us picked away at a side order of fries, despite the fries being ice cold by the time the hit our table. Very disappointed. Left three full meals behind.

                              The food was tasty but service very poor. We had to clear our own table, ask several times for the bill and the review it in detail with our server. Soco benefits from being close to the Rogers Centre - it’s packed on game day - and as a result staff take customers for granted. Can’t recommend Soco. 😔
