Our server Joe was attentive and kind at all times. Every steak ordered to our liking was great. It’s so hard to find a place where the meat truly tastes good and worth the price. Charming small space with comfortable seating for a fancy dinner. Thank you for reading our note in advance to surprise our birthday girl! She had fun :)

This was my first visit to Soco and I loved it! The staff was courteous and the service was great. Far as the food and drinks…excellent. The restaurant clean and organized plus the art on the walls was pretty cool. Last but not least, I met the owner who was very nice and he sent me and my fiancé two glasses of complementary champagne! Can’t wait to dine here again.

I was celebrating my ladies birthday and we had an amazing time. The waitress was very knowledgeable of the menu and made so great recommendations for our first time there. The Spicy Tuna over crispy rice was delicious. My lady had the Shrimp tacos(she loved it). I have to come back to for the Pouched Salmon(AMAZING).
