    Loved our time at Soca - we had the surprise meal and every plate was delicious. Love the ambiance/decor as well and the service was amazing.

    Everything was great, however, we did feel very rushed. We had to tell our server three times that we were not in a hurry. We had planned to spend the evening within the first half hour we already had been served two courses with our initial cocktail… Unfortunately, this resulted in us not ordering a final course, because we were full from eating too quickly. We did however stay in savour a bottle of wine!

    There were several problems. 1) They were out of stock of various menu items 2) the place was very cold 3) the chefs board was very amateur with pretty much what I would expect from air canada on the plate with no inspiration at all. 3) We were served our main with our used plates an cutlery from the starter which is a bit unusual for a fancy restaurant.

    We had such a great time, the drinks were fabulous, the service was on par, and the oysters were great. We went there for our 1 year wedding anniversary and we’re constantly well taken care of. I wish it included bread and butter (or olive oil) on the side. We will return for more mojitos and margarita.

    We went to Soca for our 33rd wedding anniversary. It did not disappoint. The atmosphere was classy but not snobby. The food was to die for. The dishes that stood out to me were the Soca ceviche, watercress caesar salad, chicken empanada and the coconut dessert. The waiter was so professional yet funny. We laughed out loud a few times. He made our evening. I would definitely recommend this little gem to my family and friends.

    A suggestion - having a printed menu would have be oh-so-helpful for members of our group! The big problem came when it was time to pay! For some reason we could not pay individually, or one bill with each splitting it. We ended up one person paying and getting others to e-transfer. It was confusing and completely unnecessary. I'm pretty sure that of our party of five, several will not return. Would I recommend Soca Kitchen - yes with qualifications.

    It was our wedding anniversary and we had an excellent evening and enjoyed sitting out on the patio. The food was very good and the service was charming. The only problem was that there were no paper menus and we are not very tech savvy, so we found that very challenging.

    QR code should go directly to the menu, not to the general website. The music inside was too loud (volume enough for patio to hear) and the servers claimed they had no control over volume. Got to get better at managing shared bills. Issue was a table of 6, five of which shared dishes and wine. The fifth person ordered and consumed her own choice only. Waiter took two tries at getting that reflected in the bills, and was still wrong. We ended up sorting it out ourselves with cash exchanges.
