The main course was delivered 30 min late and the manager only deducted $10 from the $112 bill
I made reservations on-line after 9pm but was told at the door they don't honor reservations after 9pm, It's first come, first serve.
SoBe Lounge is a winner! It has the ambiance of the hippest bar lounge in town. The cozy wall fireplaces provide the right atmosphere and comfort. The vibe is excellent! If you happen to be lucky enough to dine on a weekend, their regular jazz bands will wow you. The food is delicious, reasonably priced and plated beautifully. The SoBe experience is one that you will want to repeat over and over!
Disappointed in the fact we have to leave after being there 2 hours. The two hour window should be stated when you book the reservation.
Heard about the great food and nice music and great host and awesome settings this place was all that and more my wife was pleased after driving 2.5 hours for a birthday dinner her response was this is a place I will be returning to so when you say Green belt I'm ready.
I enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The live music was fantastic!
I came here on a double date because I raved about the live jazz music and salmon... I must confess i was disappointed that no live music was performed on 2/17 but we still managed to have a good time. Looking forward to going back and catching a like show. But overall, this place is enchanting ... great food, awesome drinks, and service is on point.
The ambiance was amazing and the live music was great the food was amaaaaaazing . My only negative was that our waiter had a lot of of tables so it took alittle long to receive the check as well as the dessert. I WOULD GO AGAIN and recommend it to friends.
We had a reservation and was seated right away when our party arrived. Love the live entertainment, even though shouting was needed to carry conversation over dinner. Maybe they could lower the sound in the dining area. Overall food was good, service was good. I’d like to come back for brunch.
As good as the food looked, unfortunately it wasn’t good at all. I had stuffed shrimp and scallops. The shrimps weren’t stuffed at all but I guess that’s because they were biter sized shrimps. The scallops were soaked in salt as well as the jerk chicken. Our waitress was very unprofessional. The live band was great but I do think they need to revamp their menu and train cooks as well as their waiting staff.
Bread served with mussels was so hard (must have been microwaved) it was inedible, even after soaking in the sauce. Soup was room temperature. Salmon was dry, overcooked, rice tasted prepackaged. Salad served on the plate was wilted, greens appeared to be days old. Paella was salty, tasted like bagged seasoned rice with some shellfish thrown in. Noise level prevents conversation. May be a nice jazz club but eat before you go! Ridiculously overpriced given the poor quality of the food.
Apparently the restaurant has had a change in management and it has resulted in a significant difference in the quality of the food. They acknowledge not even having real chefs and that the new chefs would be starting next week well that wasn't explain to us before we ordered and received subpar food. We were extremely disappointed but we had an excellent server.
Superb dining experience
Food was delicious. Our server was friendly. The Kevin Howard Band was great.
Have servers, which is good- minimizes waste,the fare was delicious and the setting was very relaxing.. arrived early to avoid crowding.
Too Loud! Overpriced
Good food and great band and atmosphere. I'll definitely come back with others.
Great crab cake sandwich. Lump crabmeat and very fresh.
Disappointed in the customer service shown at this establishment. I brought to the attention of the waitress that there was several strands of hair in the food. The waitress addressed the matter with the manager and the item was removed from my bill. My issue is that the Manager didn't have the courtesy to come over to the table to address the issue. I had to request to speak with him directly. Maybe this establishment doesn't know that hair in food is a health safety issue. After spending over $100, even after one of the meals was removed from the bill, acknowledgment of the issue is not too much to ask. Several customers lost...customer service is paramount and should be taken more seriously.
The dining room was empty and now I can see why. Although the quality of the food was very good, the menu is overpriced for the type of food. Also, very small tap beer selection considering how many microbrews that are out there. The waiter was professional and friendly.
Beautiful time for my birthday !!! Music food ambience and customer service was excellent we will be coming back!!!
Nice atmosphere. I loved the live music and the food presentation. My dish was flavorful but a bit pricey, especially the dessert considering the portion size. I will pass on it in the future.
If you go there for Live Music, it's best to contact the restaurant. We weren't able to see the band at all and there were plenty of empty tables closer to the back.
I really enjoyed SoBe's Brunch the food and the staff was excellent!! I would definitely go back again!!!!!
The music was great! The food was ok. Service was was very poor. We waited a very long time for our food and cocktails to be served. Great place to sit at the bar and listen to music. Dinner ????
The ambiance , food and live jazz band was amazing at SOBE. I held my birthday dinner at the venue for 12 patrons and the restaurant only provided one server which took forever to get food and drinks. The red snapper meal, steak, shrimp with stuffed crab and fried chicken dinners I would highly recommend.I would recommend when a large party is booked to have at least 2 servers especially when servers know they are going to make at least 15% tip. The overall experience was a plus but I would think twice about having another large party dinner at the venue.
Solid place to visit when you are not in a rush and just hanging out. Good food and the live band makes a tremendous difference.
I visited there on a Friday and was not impressed with the food, so I visited again on this past Sunday for Brunch. Again, the food was not all that impressive, but the service and the ambiance are outstanding. The omelets were subpar, however the waffles were above average. There is also a buffet with about 10-15 options. I say the food was subpar because the cost was $35.00 per person, but the food did not measure up to that price.
we brought my sister their for the food and live music ,she had a great time.
I was told of the dress policy so I wore a suit. Every one else was casual. No tennis. Saw a lot of tennis shoes. I didn’t like the drinks. Watered down and the food was not worth the money. I was very disappointed. Not going back. Timberland shoes. Wow baseball caps wow I had a suit on because I was told no casual clothes
Food was good. Staff was rude. They rushed us to eat and leave. Gave my family a hard time. I was undecided if I'd ever return.
Excellent and professional service. Delicious menu selections!
The appetizers (hush puppies, calamar) were good. The crab-stuffed trout was surprisingly tasteless. What was HORRIBLE was the noise level. The dj was playing great dance music for the happy hour revelers, but the
music was playing at a very high decibel, and the sound was increased more through the course of our dinner, which made it difficult for a conversation in the dining area. It makes me wonder why the restaurant would even try to draw a dinner crowd.
This was me and my boyfriends first time there and it was great. We went to celebrate his birthday and just had a good time food was delicious and the workers were great. Music was great just overall we had an amazing time. We will be back.
This was my first time attending the "Sunday Brunch" and I was very pleased with the décor, food, drinks and the service.
I'm more of a private person when eating out with friends and family, so I didn't care for the "open area", so we moved to the "bar area" to have more of a private spot that wasn't too noisy to converse.
We had fun and will be back!
Thanks for the great service and food/drinks...Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!

I have been to SoBe before but the restaurant has gone down. The buffet was so so but the service is not up to par. A waiter spilled cream all over my coat and when we requested a manager he only took $15 off our bill. The cream was over my coat, my shoe, my pants, and my blouse. I guess he tripped and the cream went flying.
I will not go back
I've been trying for three years to support this local business. Even hosted a 50th birthday celebration here. Unfortunately, the service is sub-par and the food is inconsistent. The mac and cheese appeared to be left over from the week and the crab legs were small and not fresh. A brunch in this area without turkey bacon or sausage is a no-no. I could have spent half the money and gone to Half-Note and had live entertainment. It's going to go the way of Jazzy's if changes aren't made quickly.
I have visit SoBe 2 or 3 other times last year the food was on point we got our moneies worth now they must have a new chief cause the plate look like sumthing off a cooking show pretty the year that SoBe first open it was a good look An we was Recommending people to go there. But when we left we was still hungry we had to stop an spend more money to get sumthing to eat. I notice I don’t know if he was the owner ( white guy with glasses little thick) he brought a big plate of chicken out an drop two an pick them up with his hand an put them back on them people plate
Ivy was our hostess and Jhy our waitress. They both were amazing and the bottomless champagne were a plus. I live in Los Angeles, but each time I go home to Bowie, this is one of my favorite places
Went for a Birthday celebration. The wait for food was a bit too long and things seemed to be a little unorganized.
