Food and service seems to have changed since Covid- must have new chefs quality not what I am use too from this restaurant. Server could not make small modifications to my order. I wanted the chicken and French toast item I didn’t want the gravy but I wanted to add the pecans and apples that your get with the regular French toast. She told me that the kitchen could not add this they too overwhelmed. Keep in mind I get this same order Every Sunday. So she charged me for order of French toast $15 (in which they did not add the pecans lol) and chicken $8 and eggs $4 increasing my cost almost 50% Keep in mind the menu item of chicken and French Toast cost is $15. I paid close to $3o just bc I wanted pecans and apples. Never had this request been an issue prior to Covid. Need to find new brunch spot as I will not be returning. No one wants to feel taken advantage of- I can eat at home until service and quality of food improves. Oh the chicken was over cooked and dry and the did not get me all the topics for the French toast just extra apples must have been short of the pecans and coconut flakes who knows lol.

Went for bottomless mimosas and the food didn’t disappoint. Salmon BALT was one of the best sandwiches I’ve had, the salmon filet was huge and fresh. Disco fries and breakfast wrap were great too. Definitely coming back soon

The experience was great and the background music was not too loud. The only issue I had was the waitress appeared slightly unfriendly. but overall great experience.

Unfortunately all our entrees were overcooked to the point of burned. There was very little flavor. The best part of our dinner was the calamari appetizer. We would come back for appetizers and drinks only in the future.

Every time I go they always sold out of everything & always about to close they should stop taking reservations a hour before they close because it’s pointless to be rushed to look at the menu then be told it’s not available

I would give SOMO a better rating if their outdoor dining was actually outdoors. The "huts" in the back are cute, but not outdoors. There are four walls, a roof and a door with a curtain. With four tables in the small space, there's probably more airflow inside the restaurant. It's fine to seat people there, but call it indoor dining.

Staff is SO kind and gracious. They couldn’t have been warmer or more friendly. The food was good, nothing special, but everything was fresh and prepared well and seasoned properly. More vegan options would be great :)

Food was very good and we were sat right away (with a reservation). It is very loud inside the restaurant which was the only downfall but overall would recommend and would go again.

The food and ambience were excellent. They made all accommodations for allergies. Staff and management were engaging and attentive. Only downside was noisy table next to us but absolutely no fault of the restaurant.
