As always the food was excellent. The taste, temperature and portion sizes were on point. The place is beautiful and the service was great. It was pretty crowded but our waitress was attentive but not overly attentive to our needs. This is my 3rd time going and would definitely go back again.

Where to begin. Had a reservation for 6 people but no seats were available. They offered outside (90 degrees) or outside seating behind the restaurant 🤔which was even hotter and away from actual people. So we finally got a table inside and either the a/c was broken or non existent. Hard to enjoy a meal when sweat is dripping down your back. We had a couple more issues that I wont mention. Overall food was just okay. Portions were small and not much flavor.

Made reservations online , was a breeze. Went for Father’s Day and it was nice . My first time going for brunch and I can’t wait to go! Food was delish & it was clean quiet . Only thing that was bad was the fact inside there is no fan / air . They kept the door open for circulating air but it was very humid! Overall good place

Although it was Father's Day, there was an extremely long wait for our food AND we had to ASK for our remaining items that we ordered that didn't come out with the rest of our food...A few of the drinks on the menu that we asked for were not avail....I've been here a couple of times before and all was fine, so I would give them a shot again as this just may have just been one of those days

Attended for Father’s Day, waited 30 minutes for water and orange juice. Food took over an hour. My English muffin was visibly burnt for my Benedict’s and the replacement were equally just as hard. My beignets were overcooked and chewy, home fries were hard. I ordered a side fruit bowl and received half a sliced banana that was visibly brown as if it had been sitting out, and a handful of blueberries. Overall the service was slow, food overcooked and hard. I literally felt like they just threw it together and didn’t bother to check presentation or quality. Just a bad Father’s Day experience. The restaurant provided a timecard for when my reservation would end, my food came 20 minutes before that time. My waitress was extremely pleasant and apologetic about the delay.

I always enjoy somo. I love it here. The vibe is dope, the food is good and service is always good! The bartenders are exceptional. Unfortunately I witnessed a man who identified himself as the owner, totally disrespect an elderly black woman. His behavior and lack of decorum was deplorable and disgusting.

The elderly woman was placing a complaint, which as a customer is her right. As a faithful patron I have never personally had a bad experience at somo but if I did me voicing my opinion shouldn’t be handled that way.

No man should yell at any woman, more over a man should not yell at an elderly woman. This woman was clearly in her late 60s. The way she was treated was terrible. Yelling at her repeatedly to get out.

Not cool Somo, not cool. 😔😔😔😔

My second time eating here . My first experience was not good at all so I figured to give it a second chance. It was unfortunately the same as the first time I went . Our food took over an hour to come out . They were also out of a lot of the food on the menu. Won’t be going back

The food was very delicious! I had the Salmon B.A.L.T., and the salmon was seasoned and cooked to perfection! Not a dry bite in site. My margarita tasted watered down and almost flavorless. My friend’s Sling Blade was very good though...

Service was a bit slow; our server rarely checked in on us, otherwise, I’d definitely return again. I appreciated the hostess and what may have been the manager, thanking us for our patronage.

Had dinner celebrating a birthday. The drinks were good. someone in our party ordered the vegetarian Pea Burger and really liked it. The rest of the food was good but nothing spectacular. Meatball app was good, bruschetta was good Fries were not very good.I made a reservation on Open Table but they didn't have it but said they had room for us but I felt the table they gave us right outside the kitchen was not a great spot.

I have been fo SOMO BEFORE, However on this particular day during the time 1 o’clock to 4 o’clock the service was very bad. It took over an hour and a half to get three salads. The waitress only checked on us two times within a four hour seating time. The kitchen was extremely tardy

Very hot and humid inside the A/C seemed to not be working. Didn’t have a large selection for appetizers they were out of some items. The drinks were pretty expensive and barely had any alcohol in them. The portions are small and not much variety for dinner.

We were seated immediately upon arrival. We waiting for about 30 mins and no one came to our table until we asked another waitress to help us. No one apologize about that! The food we had was mediocre seemed as though it may have been heated up in a microwave but I’m not sure. Just don’t believe the hype.

Great way to spend a Sunday with friends! Bottomless mimosas held true to the name and my Crab Benedict was a perfect meal! The seating is a a little tight for a large group outdoors but after a few drinks we barely noticed! 😂
