Excellent food. There were some flies or moths or something floating around, which was a little irritating, but otherwise the food and drink was great and I would return.

We just moved to the area and decided to try SoBo Cafe for an impromptu get together with friends. We had a wonderful experience — great food, atmosphere and service. We look forward to going back soon and often!

Lovely ambiance. The whole party gave it a thumbs up. Sobo Cafe offers an interesting menu and is very affordable for a small, cozy neighborhood restaurant.

We have been to SoBo several times, and always find the food well prepared and very tasty. It is a medium sized restaurant with a bar and can get a little noisy but not loud. Service is casual, friendly and good. Would definitely recommend for a nice evening out.

Truly an outstanding experience. From service to food it was perfect. The service was attentive without being intrusive. The food was to die for. We had just run the Baltimore marathon and totally loved every bite.

Local, neighborhood place with excellent food and service and super friendly, welcoming feel.
My favorite replace in the neighborhood, good for everyday dining but can be elegant enough to celebrate special occasions.

We go to Sobo once a month for our book club and, most of us, several other times throughout the month. The food is exciting and frequently updated, as is the artwork. Sobo is somehow able to keep things both fresh and familiar and for that reason, it is a favorite spot for most neighbors.

This is our routine before a Ravens game. Today’s experience was disappointing. Our initial request for cinnamon rolls was wrong. Only one of the two rolls was brought to our table. The second roll came only after several requests and 10 to 15 minutes later. Two orders of poached eggs were overcooked. The complementary bread never came. The coffee & tea refill was delayed. The food also took a long time to come to our table.

We always love this neighborhood gem. We brought my mother for the first time as she was visiting from out of town. We all loved our meals. Our waitress could not have been nicer and we can't wait to go back!

Food was fabulous. The service was ok. They forgot 2 side dishes and a cocktail. They finally brought the drink and didn’t charge us. The sides took too long so we cancelled them. I would recommend Sobos. All said we had a great time and the food was fantastic! We’ll be back

What a charming restaurant! Went for my birthday dinner and food was delicious and seasoning on point! I had the steak, perfectly medium and the creamed spinach was not too salty and was delicious. Would definitely recommend for any special occasion dinner.

Everything was fantastic! I got the honeydew soup (really unusual but tasty), while my husband got a delicious tomato biscuit. The Mac and cheese was pretty wonderful, too. Service was great, I’d love to go back.

This little café is hidden away but at the same time very close to the downtown hotels, inner Harbor area. The freshness and uniqueness of the food was outstanding and I would most definitely recommend anyone a good meal in Baltimore get there fast!

Good food and friendly service. All the dishes we ordered were tasty - House Smoked Salmon Omelet, Big Breakfast and Chicken Pot Pie. Loved the pancakes that came with the Big Breakfast, so fluffy, will do a separate order of that next time. We had no problem finding parking on Saturday, about a 2 block walk. Would definitely come back.

It was great! A little loud since it was before a Ravens’ game but everyone seemed to be having a good time. We did. Excellent for Restaurant Week and anytime. Do yourself a favor and try their chicken salad for lunch.
