We had the best service and our food for brunch never disappoints here. We also love the cocktail menu.

I did not enjoy my experience and will not return. I left feeling unsatisfied with the food. My service was really poor. Hailey was my server. Not sure if I spelled it correctly but she was not good.

Waited nearly 25 minutes even though we had a reservation and there were empty tables. Our appetizers came out AFTER we finished our main course. And when it finally came out, the food was not warm. Just such a disappointment.

I did not get to eat because the pancakes and French toast I ordered they ran out and didn’t tell me until I was 25 minutes into waiting for my food to come out!

The outdoor black booths are TINY. No leg room and hard to get in and out. It took over 10 minutes to be greeted by our waitress. We had floaters in our water, the food took forever, and was not worth the wait. The cheese wasn’t melted into the eggs and the French toast gave me a insane sugar rush. The bottomless mimosas were the best part of the experience. However, I believe they use cheap champagne because I had a major headache shortly thereafter. Wouldn’t go back here.

The wait for our food was 1 hour and 35 minutes. The pasta portions are small. Another waiter took my appetizer to a completely different table causing the wait to be extended. When they remade it, it came out with two meatballs and came out with the entree. The food was not worth the wait and they added an automatic 20% gratuity without letting us know until after eating. The service was not worth 20% gratuity. The manager took only $3 off our bill and no money off of the gratuity fee.

The food was very delicious but the service was poor. We ate 6 appetizers with our bare hands because our waitress never brought our silverware. We waited for a while for her to come back and also thought about calling the restaurant to ask her to bring us silverware. We ate outside and were far from other service members. Our drinks were not cold, ice was melted in our cocktails like it had been sitting on the bar waiting to be brought to the table.

To be fair, they were busy, and the outside seating doesn’t help. But having more wait staff might be beneficial. Apps coming after-dinner course… ?

Food, drinks, and atmosphere are all lovely. The food is very good, but not incredible. The cocktail menu is definitely more interesting than the food menu. I would recommend SOMO if you're looking for a nice place for sophisticated fun cocktails..wouldnt recommend based in food alone. Just so-so.

Food was good but we ate outside and the area did not appear to be clean. Waiter brought everything almost at the same time. The best order is drinks first, salad/app then main

My family and I wanted to try some place new to us, Somo has a very nice vibe and setting and our waitress Hailey was really sweet and patient. The appetizers came out in good time but the entrees took forever to come out. Having said that, all the food was absolutely delish! I would recommend this place to friends and family and I will definitely come back to dine.

A little warm inside, wish it was a little cooler inside but also understandable due to the recent extreme hot weather but not discouraged that I won’t return. Overall the food, staff and drinks were amazing. Can’t wait to come back! ❤️

My daughter celebrated their 15th birthday there with her friends and they all loved their entire experience! My husband and I opted to sit a few tables away to give the girls their “privacy” and had a great time as well. Marissa is a wonderful service manager and took the time to meet with me beforehand to have a game plan and then made sure they had a great time!

I visited on Friday 7/17 and found out there wasn’t happy hour on Fridays, which is fine and we still enjoyed our visit and would definitely come back on a weeknight for happy hour!

We ended up sitting at the bar and had Ryan as a bartender. You could see that he was hustling and very busy but still made us feel very welcomed and his service was so attentive!

The meatball appetizer was basically a whole meal and was delicious! I loved the ricotta. The asparagus was phenomenal and tasted fresh and was cooked to a perfect texture. The manager was active on the floor checking on bar guests and on tables which was nice to see. Been before and would definitely be back!
