Really incredible experience and atmosphere. The food was excellent (and such a fun concept to give these incredible rising chefs the opportunity to showcase their work!) and beyond that the whole thing was so well curated. You start walking through the kitchen which is cool to see, it's on the waterfront which is beautiful, there's a cocktail hour, and during the dinner portion you sit at larger tables so get to meet some new folks if that's your thing. We really loved it and plan to go again when they release the next tranche.

This place is a hidden gem for French food in Carroll Gardens / Cobble Hill in Brooklyn area. The atmosphere is lively, with great service. The food is amazing, with perfectly cooked meats and vegetables, and a tasty red wine sauce. The chef clearly knows French cooking techniques. We enjoyed steak tartare, tuna tartare, gnocchi , and beef bourguignon, all large and delicious. The crème brûlée for dessert was also very good. tasty French meal. Highly recommend!

Amazing food, great vibe, super service. I loved the ceviche and the barrasco was superb. We saw a large party, celebrating a birthday, and the staff made it so special for them.

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.
