    I made a reservation (specifically for a high top table) and wanted to enjoy the band who played on Saturday night. I read the restaurant’s information on open table prior to confirming my reservation (dress code, card required to hold, etc). Once I arrived, I was told that there were table minimums ($100, $200, and $300); this information should’ve been stated upfront and not at the front door. When I make a reservation at a restaurant, I don’t expect to be told what I have to spend like purchasing a table at a club—it’s misleading and bamboozling. The food came out pretty fast, but there was no flavor whatsoever and yes, staff was notified, but also very nonchalant. This is such a nice place, but it’s left so much to be desired for a long time now.

    The service was very slow. The waiter never came over, but another person served us and was attentive. I think the Jazz music was lovely but so loud that it made it difficult to talk. I think the high tops and booth minimums were a bit much. I had a friend visiting from out of state, and they were taken back by the charge to sit in a specific spot.

    We had a wonderful time. The food was great! The live band was one of the best I've heard in a long time. The only issue we had was the service. I can't blame our sever though, she was in charge of the whole room by herself. They really need to try and hire more staff. I know it's hard right now but that would really take this restaurant to the next level!

    Everything was good, except the music was extremely too loud, you couldn't even hear each other talking, had to yell. I didn't like being told you can only sit in the bar area if spending $100 for a tall table and $300 for a booth...REALLY?!!! Their prices aren't cheap, you're definitely gonna spend $100 easy, so that shouldn't even determine where you sit! Also was told no athletic wear, but every guy in the place had on athletic wear, doo rags, caps, shorts, slides, tennis shoes, timbs...again REALLY?!!! Alot of rules just to grab a drink and some eats!!!!! Also when a restaurant asks what the occasion is, and you tell them, I expect to have something special done for the celebrating person, but they do absolutely nothing!!! Most all reputable restaurants provide something for the special occasion, usually it's free dessert for the celebrating person.

    Terrible service, nobody came to take our orders we had to keep waving the waiters down and when the food finally came we had to wave them down again for our utensils. food wasn’t that all small portions and cold. And when it came to the bill they charged us 20% gratitude automatically when it clearly states on the menu that 20% gratitude is added to the bill of parties of six or more it was only me and my boyfriend a party of two terrible service I’m not coming back here ever again.

    We had so much fun. We haven’t been out in awhile and to come to the Sobe lounge for the night was extremely nice. The food was delicious and the customer service was on point. Not to mention the band was excellent. We are going to make our next all girls night here for sure. Can’t wait to come back.

    Very…very….very….SLOW SERVICE! No acknowledgment from staff, be prepared to wait over one hour for someone to greet and acknowledge you!! When you finally get to place an order it will also take over one hour to get your food and your order most likely will be wrong. The staff there seem to be very confused and will give you food that you did not order. Oh and please to avoid getting frustrated, don’t ask your waiter or waitress any questions about items on the menu, or when your drinks or food will be brought to you, because their response is always “I don’t know”. They do not even try to say let me find out and get back to you! While you are eating, just know you will be checked on two hours later so if your drink is finished and your parched it will be a long wait for a refill. At the end of your dinner and you ask for the check, please know that it will take another hour or more. You will definitely get fed up with waiting and walk over to the bar to complain, then the waitress will walk you to what seems to be their ONLY cash out register where four waiters are crowding around trying to figure out your bill!! SMH! Only Pro: Live band is ok, if you are a live band fan. I am not! I prefer a good DJ.

    I’ve been a few times and the food is pretty good. I love the fish and grits from the brunch menu. However, it is always tooooooooo loud. The live DJ is nice, but the noise level is way off. We have to sit outside every time. This was my first time going to see the live jazz on Saturdays and the band was GREAT! More a cover band than jazz, but still enjoyed. They should probably say live bad instead of jazz though because of customer expectations. All in all-local, good food, and good people. It is slow so go with the expectation-either w/good company, a book, or when the live band is playing as a distraction and you won’t mind the wait!!! I MUST ALSO give a shout out to the best waitress I’ve had so far (probably spelling her name incorrectly) Mari!!! Her service has encouraged me to come more frequently and sweet personable and charismatic young lady!!!

    My husband and I dined on the inside and the food and service was superb. The bill already included gratuity BUT my husband add an additional tip. After dinner, we went in the patio to smoke a cigar. Sadly? The service there was non-existent. We were assured that someone would assist us with drinks and no one ever stopped by our table. My husband actually had to go to the bar twice to get drinks for us. Perhaps that’s the protocol for the patio and if it is; that is poor customer service. Again, the inside dining and our waiter were superb.

    I made a reservation but we still had to wait for a table.😟 Once we were seated it took over 20 minutes for some one from the wait staff to come to the table even asking repeatedly if someone was coming. Once a server did arrive she was very pleasant and the food came out quickly. Everyone enjoyed the meal and I took home leftovers. It was extremely loud inside! You had to yell at your table mates to be heard and understood. Not sure if I will go back unless I can set outside.

    Music was extremely loud and felt like a club party atmosphere. Not appropriate for dining. Food was fantastic! They just need to lower the music so you can enjoy conversation and hear each other speak across the table. Service was moderate. I reserved a standard table but when arrived on time the host indicated they had several groups and no more standard tables available. Why was the point in a reservation? Food was delicious and I would return just for that! Hope they turn the music down and improve service.

    Had a reservation - had to wait after getting there on time for a table that was always available from the time we arrived. Wait a long time for our food to arrive, the waitress was good but I think the wait for food to arrive to our table was long. The food was subpart at best. I think regular french toast should be an option as well as regular pieces of fried chicken instead of boneless and meatless fried chicken thighs. Wont be returning for brunch. DJ and 360 photobooth were a nice though.

    Food was amazing as always. Sat outside, where there was music and hookah but it was not as loud as the interior - which was great. Had sone minor confusion with the waitress with my order, where I asked for Cajun seafood and grits and she thought I asked for Cajun seafood pasta. She quickly made the correction and put in my order for the correct meal. Overall great meal and atmosphere!
