Excellent food, service, ambiance and reasonably priced. Our party shared and tasted everything. The short rib tacos was wonderful and special. It was our first visit here, but will return! great for a date night, or a crowd. Quiet enough for good conversation. Overall, a wonderful surprise, better than expected!

Fun casual place. Not much to look at from the outside but very cute inside. Good varied menu of comfort foods with a stylish twist. One of the best burgers I have had in a long time.

The only downside is the seating is very typical of New York. Cram as many seats and tables as you can into your space so getting up to go to the. At broom or letting others pass was a process but the service was fantastic and everything was tried was amazing.

There was such variety and bottles of wine so reasonably priced!

The burrata with the tomato purée was excellent, the strip steak cooked perfectly. We did order too much food haha but even with 7 plates and 2 bottles of wine it was still a reasonable price!

The owner was a wonderful host as well and came by to check on us to make sure everything was perfect.

Will definitely go back!

The food and service at Sojourn is exemplary; however I would recommend it with reservations. The noise level is very loud. The tables are close together and more importantly the aisles are extremely narrow. I stood up to leave and for a second I did not see a clear way to exit because the aisles are so narrow. It was a Friday night and the restaurant was bustling. The servers are extremely attentive, but it leaves one to wonder if that is to ensure that you get in and get out so that the table can be turned over quickly. I would go again but not on a Friday night.

It's a great spot for a date, or a night out. You really can't go wrong with anything on their menu.

We had an excellent dinner for 6 at Sojourn. We ordered a ton of food, probably too much, and ate it all! Everything was fresh and delicious. Something for everyone. We had two kids with us who also loved their meals. Cheese and charcuterie plates were great. Nice sangria. We had a high table in the back of the restaurant which was very nice. Easy to have a conversation despite a packed floor. Highly enjoyable experience.

The Saturday my friend and I went it was extremely crowded. Even though we had reservations, the only available table was right by the door which was freezing. We decided to wait for a better, warmer table, which was better. The meal was delicious and our drinks were fine (and for good value) but the service was almost nonexistent at times, as it was so busy. They also ran out of coffee for our lattes. So maybe this place is better not for brunch ...

We were seated 15 minutes after the reservation was supposed to start, it took forever to place our order, and the food took a long time to come. I've been to Sojourn before and had better service. The food was delicious and I would recommend Sojourn despite the service being so slow on this visit.

My first visit here and it made a great impression. I was with a group and we all had different requirements. Two were vegetarian, one wanted to graze and two of us had skipped lunch and were ready for a real meal. All of us came away very satisfied. The duck and the brussels sprouts seem to be the big winners.

We went here for a team dinner for 8 people. It was perfect. We shared some dishes and each got our own dish. There was plenty of food (actually too much!). One dish was better than the other. Pretty decent wine and cocktail list. I do believe they have some seasonal specials as well. Service was very nice too. They don’t rush you. We went around 6:15 and by 8 the place was packed.

We loved this restaurant! It was our first time there and it was a fantastic experience. The host was great to work with and he was very flexible when we need two extra chairs for our friends that came by last minute. The food was great and our service (Patricia?) was GREAT! She was so attentive and didn't miss a beat whenever we needed anything. We were a party of 6 on January 17th at 6:30 - I only state that so they can praise all of the people working that night - it was great and we will be back!!!!!

Nice ambiance, easy reservation and good food; however food took way longer than it should have. We waited almost an hour for our brunch order to come out.

The brunch deal of extree + side + unlimited mimosas/bloody Mary's/Sangria was an excellent deal and the food was good! The service was ok, because the restaurant was so busy. My biggest complaint is the restaurant is small and the tables were on top of each other. My coat and bag kept getting knocked off and there were not much room to move around.
