Overall the place was lively and very fun. However the food had hair in it and the waitress didn’t really seem to happy to serve us.

Just a flat-out awesome experience. We were 5 minutes late for our reservation but they didn’t bat an eye at that; we were seated promptly and (as requested) on the patio. Lovely surroundings, a Bohemian chic vibe (one of the best fire pits ever) and wonderful food. Don’t ponder whether you should get the ceviche sampler for the table, just do yourself a favor and go for it. Service was attentive without being intrusive and friendly and engaged - no phoning it in here. Will definitely go back.

Had a good experience as we usual do. The only complaint I had was my Old Fashioned I believe was made with a premix.

The food and drink were to die for however it was a bit pricey! Service was wonderful and the ambience was great. I was hoping to be able to go back more often but at that price it will be a once in a blue moon kind of thing sadly.

Great place for a group of friends or family to gather - even the furry friends! The food is great and the ceviche is so fresh.
Our server, Roman, was knowledgeable of the menu and super nice! Excited to go back soon!

We were sat and never got service. We waited 10 plus minutes for even some water or a drink order. Servers kept looking at us and walking past but no one stopped. We ended up walking out. The food is usually amazing so we were looking forward to a night out but this was just a terrible experience and I don’t know if we will be back.

We had reservations and were seated immediately. I had the pan seared chicken and the hubs had the shrimp and grits. Both were delicious and hot when delivered to the table. Calamari appetizer was also delicious.

3.22.21: Our patio server Ali was just ok ... She failed to introduce herself or present us with positive energy on any format. I will say the folks being served by the young man with the infectious energy + smile on the patio were BLESSED beyond words ... He should lead + train the servers at SOC.


Chicken Egg Rolls: Excellent!
Nachos with Beef: Good Potential, Yet Lacked Beef . Served Luke Warm . Homemade Potato Chips were to Oily.
Chicken Lettuce Wraps: Returned Due to Dry Chicken + Missing Condiments.
Agua Frescas: Lemon Cucumber was Refreshing + Yummy. The Strawberry Basil was Remiss of Flavor . Strawberries + Basil.

The establishment was out of multiple entree options and when asked what was out for a sandwich option and it was only the bread, another bread option was not offered. Our particular waitress was not the best or very accommodating. Food that was received was over salted and we don’t shy away from salt! For a 120 dollar tab for two people, it was not the expected experience. The ambiance was very nice though.

The food was not up to par for the price you pay. It was bland in taste and very small portions. The guacamole dip was great though but again very small portion. Service was great. Atmosphere was not as unique as we hoped for

Waiter was not great ! He never came back to refill coffee. Waited 30 minutes for a overcooked burger. Requested that the burger be cooked medium received a well done burger. I’ve eaten here many times and I was so disappointed with the service and food this time.

Horrible valentine's dinner!! To start off, our waitress took our order, mine and husband, I ordered ceviche sampler, he ordered a chicken dish with rice, I also ordered lettuce wraps for starters. After waiting for what felt like forever, the waitress brings out a plate of Peruvian ceviche and a plate of mexican ceviche, me th thinking this was part of the sampler, i started to eat it. Then she brings out the lettuce wraps. My husband and I finished all 3 plates (small portion meals ☹) so we waited about 30 minutes longer for his meal and for what I thought would be the rest of mine. After 30 mins she brings out a plate divided in 4 portions with all 4 ceviche (the sampler I ordered). Then my husband gets his plate of chicken, which was a bit spicy for him. After we ate, I got my bill and I was charged for Mexican Ceviche, Peruvian ceviche, Lettice Wraps, The Ceviche Sampler, and The Chicken meal!!!!! I paid the $123 bill plus a $25 tip and did not complain because I am afraid to say anything to people given what chaos is going on in the world, so instead I am writing a review, and bewaring people of this restaurant. What really caught my eye upon choosing this place was the outside fire and igloo, we did not even get a choice of where we wanted to sit. The restaurant was not busy at all, it was about 1/4 capacity. I couldn't understand why service was so slow also because it was not busy at all.
