    I don’t know if it was the time of day but I honestly wasn’t impressed. They charge you $50 if you bring a cake even if it just sits on the table and they don’t even have cake on the menu. This is actually a decent place for celebrations but all of the unnecessary, unreasonable added fees are a huge turn off. The service was really slow. It took over 30 minutes to receive drinks and even longer for the food. The mimosas were very flat and disappointing. The shrimp and grits were pretty good. Nothing was horrible about this experience but I expected more. I may come back again during a different time of day and see if it’s better.

    The food quality has drastically decreased in the last few years. The waffle was extremely heavy instead of light and fluffy. I couldn’t eat it so I swamped it for home fries which were salty. I won’t be returning.

    Food was great. Service could have been better if the waitress was able to hear what I actually ordered…but how could she with the music up so loud. Needless to say, because of the slow service, I made a choice not to complain about bringing out the wrong food item.

    This is our 2nd visit to Sobè and our dining experience gets better each time. From the moment we walk through the doors, we receive a pleasant greeting from the hostess, the dining room is bursting with an exquisite look and the music selections makes you sing along. The drinks are tasty, the food is delicious and all served by the gracious wait staff. Many thanks and looking forward to our next visit.

    SoBe has excellent food, some of the best...if not the best southern cuisine I've tasted in the DMV. The food is a little pricey for the serving amount, and the drinks are the new standard, $12-$20. The other complaints I have are 1) the music is too loud for dining and conversation, I could barely converse with my dining partner sitting beside me. 2) you have to buy $300 in food/drinks to sit at the booth, and $100 to sit at the high chair. 3) no one ever serves greens without cornbread, but here, you have to pay for $5 for 2 small muffins!!! This was definitely a gouge! Finally, you have to paid $20 for a reservation, but once I got there and stayed 2 hours, the place never got crowded, and a couple of people came in and just sat at the bar. Overall, I'd only come back to sit at the bar for happy hour, otherwise, you're being "pick-pocketed." Side note...the Sugar Daddies are in heavy rotation at this spot, women may or may not like the attention. One thing to note, the customer service was excellent, the staff is very professional and extremely nice!

    The restaurant was lovely. Good vibes, good food, the love music was amazing! What really took away from the experience was our waiter, George, barely visited our table. It took him 20mins to come to the table and when he came he didn’t greet my friend and I nor state his name. Then, it took another 15/20 to bring our drinks. There was no water at the table, silverware, napkins, nothing. We finally got our food (which my server didn’t deliver, a food runner did. It came out pretty quick and was good!) Our server didn’t check on us or the meal until we were completely done w/ it. The restaurant was great! It has everything you need for a nice night out, but the server I had made the experience HORRIBLE!

    Celebrated our matriarch on her 79th. Food and service were great! I would recommend something softer for ambient sounds on a Sunday brunch and lower volume. Perhaps even upbeat Christian or jazz music. Overall a good experience and would celebrate there again.

    First time in SoBe since they opened years ago. They are quite popular now and “require” a reservation (with a credit card) no matter how small the party (mine was 2 people). They also limit your time to 2 hours. I guess because it was a Saturday evening with a band? Service could be improved as it took about 20 minutes before anyone came to take our order. Then, apps and dinner came out at the same time. Food was good though. I still may give SoBe another try at some point.

    Overall it was a very nice experience! However, we were there to celebrate our friend’s bday which I put in the comment section of the reservation asking if there was anything (bday song, dessert with candle etc. that could be done to enhance the experience. Unfortunately no one acknowledged the request and since she was enjoying herself I didn’t bring it up with staff…

    Friendly staff but no sense of urgency. Food took a long time to come when it wasn’t busy/crowded, and food wasn’t the greatest. They were out of basic things like coffee and creamer.

    Service started out extremely slow. However once our appetizers arrived our dinner came quickly after. The food was wonderful, seasoned well and cooked perfectly. Our waitress was very sweet but the service was slow all around from all servers. As an example, it took 45 minutes for us to get glasses of water in our initial drink order taken. Yes, I would go back again. I would not however go for an event that was time sensitive.

    After making a reservation and then calling as soon as they opened yesterday to confirm my reservation when I get there and they don't have a table available. Which is really swlf seating because host acknowledged the reservation, gave us a QR code to scan and said we can find a table. Once I came back to hostess she then spoke with manager that advised us that what we selected is only an option. We settled in a booth where we couldnt see the band which is the only reason we came. The immediate need to advise us of tab requirements and imposed gratuity we still had to go to the manager twice to get s server to take our order. It took an 1hr before someone came to our table. The place wasn't crowded and had two servers. My friend's band plays here and they knew it was her birthday but had more busboys than servers and bartenders. It's a Saturday night and although not crowded it was a decent size party where most were disappointed with service, cold food after waiting over an hour to come out and small drinks for the price. It took us an 1.5hr to get the first round of drinks. The staff don't bother to deliver service because they know it's a mandatory minimum and imposed gratuity. Sobe's wants to cater to the professional and successful community of pg County however they are not professional and management, bartenders and waiters are lacking.
