    Dined there for Mother’s Day for brunch. The lobster omelette and potatoes were delicious! Glad I ordered off the menu instead of the buffet. The family members who chose that option said it was just ok. The band was really good, but it’s definitely a loud atmosphere. I’ll be back with friends next time.

    Wait 30 with reservations and noticed several large parties that arrived after our group being seated ahead of us. When we were finally seated we waited another 15 minutes before my husband had to grab a waitress to help us. The brunch was missing an omelette station and after waiting in a long line the fried chicken needed to be replenished by the staff so I had to come back and wait in line again. Except for the powdered eggs the food was delicious.

    First off the information on the website was different than what was explained at the restaurant. This was the Mother's Day Brunch on Mother's Day. 1. On the website it said $25 for unlimited mimosas, but it was $30 and everyone at the table had to purchase it. 2. The website said gratuity was automatically added to parties of 6 or more, but it was actually all checks. 3. The service was terrible, we had to find our waitress and ask for plates and water. 4. The staff arrived at 11am, which was the same time as our reservations and had to wait almost 30 mins to be seated. 5.The servers did not speak English and could not answer any questions regarding the food, nor did they have signs out telling you what you were eating. 6. You get two hours to eat your meal, but it took 30 mins to be seated and the DJ got on the mic at 12:30 and gave the last call for the buffet. 7. The music was so loud you couldn't hear your conversation at the table. This was terrible especially on Mother's Day, I do not recommend at all.

    This place does well because of the entertainment it brings in. The service sucks. The food is very tasty and good size portion on some items. The drinks are too expensive - I ordered the same drink, paid the same price and the size of the 2nd drink was in a smaller glass - unfair pricing. Managements is not professional, and their dress is also unprofessional.

    Everything we had was tasty (sliders, jerk wings, oxtail). The ambiance here is always nice. They were celebrating their 10 year anniversary though, unbeknownst to us so in addition we had to pay an unexpected entrance fee as they were also having an event that night. One minute it was $50 for men then literally the next it was $30 per person. As a guest who was only coming to eat did not expect to incur the extra cost. There were several live bands which ended up being alright but some notice and no entry to restaurant patrons seem the fair way to have addressed this

    I really love this restaurant however, maybe it was because of the event but the limited menu was a disappointment. I went to have a great meal and there were no side’s except Brussels sprouts. The wings were awful. All in all we had a wonderful time except the limited menu.

    Food was amazing and server was great. Outside seating needs an update ASAP. Chairs were dingy and why was a ladder sitting where your customers are dining? Overall the food saved the day! The brunch was on point. We had fried chicken and French toast, and the lobster omelette. Both were delicious!

    Food was amazing, Braylin our server was great!! We arrived at 6on Friday, Rez was for that time. We were seated in the back of the restaurant and there was only 2 tables occupied. We asked to be moved and was told we could not move. 9:00 band started, now 3 tables were occupied and the manager did not think to move us up. This is not on our server, it was management and they should have allowed it in the first place

    We had a a sisterhood brunch at Sobes on Saturday. The food and fellowship was amazing. My sisters order food to take home to their husbands. This was my second time at Sobes and I must say, it was incredible both times. Looking forward to return on the day they have the live band playing. You will not be disappointed if you go-to Sobes. 👍🏽

    Came to Sobe for a friends’ birthday. We brought our own small cake for my friends birthday and asked the waitress if she could store it in the fridge. She went to ask management and she returned to tell us there was a $50 cake fee. We told her no big deal that we would keep the cake at the table. After brunch we cut the cake and ate one piece each as the restaurant even gave us plates and utensils. After eating and getting ready to pay the check the hostess came to the table to inform us an additional $50 will be added for a cake fee. We were confused because it was NEVER stated that eating the cake and not only storage of the cake was $50. With no complaints we paid the fee and decided to never come back to this establishment. Also, followed the dress code as the website states they strictly enforce business casual attire. As the restaurant began to get full there was absolutely no strict following of the stated dress code on the website. Patrons were coming in wearing sneakers, baseball hats and track suits. Food was mediocre!!

    We dined at SoBe to celebrate a birthday. We were there for the Saturday brunch. Everything was nearly perfect. From the time we were seated until we left, we received excellent service. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious. The whole experience exceeded my expectationss!

    My husband and I went on Valentine’s Day . Our dinner reservation was at 9:00 . The only problem there was a live band there so it was a cover charge, $20 for me and $30 for my husband. So that’s $50 before we even stepped in the door. We did not know it was going to be a band or a cover charge. But the band was great it was a little loud for dinner conversation. The service was great and the food was good.

    The food was great the service was great the only thing that caught me off guard was the regular Wednesday night band performance which requires a $30 cover from men and a $20 cover for women. As it turns out it was fun to dance to the music after dinner.

    This place has such a beautiful vibe. Sobe Restaurant and Lounge holds a special place in my heart. Two years ago on Friday June 16th was my last birthday or any with my bestie she passed away the next month unexpectedly. So as we said our goodbyes last night I became emotional and was so glad to be there Sobe we made a memories. The Servers were wonderful and food was amazing. Highly recommend for any type of celebration. Hands down my favorite place across the bridge. Please go you won't be disappointed

    The live band entertainment by Still Familiar was GREAT! Food and drinks are over priced for the quality and presentation. Poor customer service at 18% automatic gratuity for extensive wait times to receive food & beverages, absent waiter and a very RUDE and UNREASONABLE “Manager”! Be sure to check your receipt for accuracy, they attempted to overcharge my meal by $3 more than indicated on THEIR menu and wanted to go back and forth about it! I CANNOT!!!!

    SoBe needs to improve their business management. Kitchen staff should be knowledgeable of their limitations (i.e., time and staff) to fulfill food orders. Any issues should be foreseeable and communicated with the wait staff before it becomes an issue. When customers arrive, the staff should alert customers of service delays prior to paying a cover fee. Customers should have the cancellation fee waived if they decide not to hold their reservations due to delays. As for the bar staff, they need a better system to serve customers when crowded. Do better SoBe!!

    Overall I think Sobe is a great restaurant. The food is great! The drinks were good. I love the decor. Although me and my friends were there in the evening, we felt the noise level of the band was quite excessive. The mic was way too loud!!! We were screaming across the table to talk to each other. The servers, although polite, were pretty bad.
