Food was great as usual and the ability to sit outside and listen to the great music played and sung by the guitarist added to the experience. Great way to celebrate National Rose’ Day with a bottle while eating a cheese plate

Excellent meal and service! My Husband had the 1/2 roasted chicken which was delicious and I had the Harvest entree salad with added protein (salmon) which was delicious. Outstanding service as well. We will definitely return and recommend to others! Great job Soma!

The service wasn't quite what I expected. Server in training with jeans and tats. Not that I'm against that, but it didn't seem to fit in with my view of the environment of the place. The food was also pretty iffy. My steak was overcooked and had lots of gristle. The outside patio was nice, though.

Excellent meal and great value. We had a fabulous Brandy Alexander with chocolate sauce drizzle and pumpkin pie spice sprinkle that was made by our bartender, Kylie. She created it for us, and it was perfect.

Atmosphere on the porch was fantastic. Service a little slow, but understandable given the difficulty finding staff due to the pandemic. We were rushed out at the end, which could have been handled more diplomatically. The majority of the food was wonderful with the exception of the pork osso bucco which seemed dry and bland. Overall, a good experience.

Soma needs to work on their greeting service and also the wait staff. Food was good, but not exceptional. There was a lot of confusion as to the seating and what tables are available. Ambiance was excellent.

The food was excellent, but they were apparently understaffed in the kitchen. It took a very long time to get our food (~60 min.). It was Mother's Day; so I'll cut them some slack. Overall very good food and atmosphere. We'll come back.

We just loved our first dinner at the Soma Grille and we cannot wait to go back ! The food was So good! The scallop appetizer was exceptional we highly recommend it ! As was the grilled salmon so fresh and Cooked to perfection ! My husband raved about the burger he ordered ! He cannot wait to go back for the short ribs ! A d the strawberry shortcake was so delicious and beautifully presented ! The menu’s great the ambiance is beautiful whether you sit inside or outside . Once the weather finally warms up sitting outside on the patio will be glorious enjoying a wonderful meal ! I don’t know where they found their chef but I hope they do everything they need to to keep him ! 😊 Highly recommend !

The paella was terrible. Very little seafood but a boat load of saffron rice. The shared appetizer of fried calamari was overcooked and not what one would expect.
To be fair my wife enjoyed her grilled fillet.

First time here and it was great! Food was excellent and good prices for level of food. I have spent more at much lessor restaurants. Much better than Millrights down the street. Deserts were great too! I travel all over the country for business and this is a top restaurant!

We had the most wonderful lunch on Easter Sunday. The staff was very welcoming, the owner came by to check that we were satisfied. There were four of us and we each ordered a different dish. Each one of them was delicious and perfect temperature. We will be back again and again.

An evening out without the kids. Soma Grill is always a favorite. Chris and his staff does a fantastic job making you feel warm and inviting as you come into the restaurant. I love the fact that he comes to the table and has a good conversation with you. Dinner was fantastic - we had the chicken vanentino and everything salmon. Cooked perfectly and served invitingly. Will be back soon and thank you for nice dinner at your place.

My experience at Soma Grille was fantastic. I sat at the bar and the separation between parties created an intimate environment. Our drinks were mixed perfectly (Paloma and a Manhattan). The food was incredible: Salman and Bolognese. All around a great experience.

Our experience was disappointingly mediocre. To start, the ambience was very disappointing and not what you would expect from an inn in the center of Simsbury. The service was ok - we were taken care of just fine, however we felt as if we were being rushed out. We placed our appetizer and entree orders together at the beginning, and the entree came out almost immediately after our two appetizers. We ended up eating the entrees before they got cold and left a majority of the appetizers behind. The food was ok. Not good enough to make up for the other faults, but not bad either. Overall, we were looking for a relaxing, leisurely Saturday night dinner out, and that was not what we got. We won’t be returning.
