Chicken Pot Pie
chicken and vegetables with a savory pastry
crispy phyllo, spinach, feta cheese, served with jalapeno-dill sour cream
Best meal in town! Food is on point and service is top tier!
Absolutely love the food but do not like to sit inside because of the sound (and neither do my friends )We often get carry out or sit outside.The food is excellent though.
Promptly seated upon arrival. Took a while to get service but once we did it was timely and attentive. Son really enjoyed his gyro as did I my salmon although I found the portion smaller than expected. Nice neighborhood restaurant.
ehh unfortunately probably won’t be back
We dined here about two weeks ago and had the same great service and great food this time. Our server Spencer was truly outstanding . Looking forward to going back again!
WE always like SoBo for the pleasant atmosphere and their variety of menu items. We like to take advantage of the various special days and items offered each day.
Friendly service. Great food. Very comfortable atmosphere.
I cannot say enough good things about SoBo. My husband and I and our dear friends have been dining there every Monday night for years. The food is ALWAYS delicious-the ambiance warm and inviting and the staff superb! When we go to SoBo we feel at home with friends and a staff that feels like family.
We always enjoy SoBo for the food and ambiance and staff.
Consistently excellent across the board - food, service, value. One of our regular stops in Federal Hill
Always tasty, lovely outdoor seating area, very friendly, and a neighborhood gem.
Nice place for a dinner, great food!
The food and service was great. We realy enjoyed sitting outside. The plaintains with the peruvian chicken are amazing.
We went at 4 pm and were the only people there. It was awkward and just creepy. The radio didn’t work and they HAD NO WIFI service!!!! All you heard were the staff in the kitchen talking. Food was good. Ordered Korean ribs with mashed potatoes and kimchi collard greens.
Everything was delicious…especially the spinach pie!!
My daughter and I greatly enjoyed our dining experience at Sobo. The food was amazing from the Crab Dip in bread boule to the coffee and dessert. The food is made from scratch and is amazingly fresh and flavorful. Our server was attentive and gave us time to visit, share photos, and catch up, since we hadn’t done so in awhile. The atmosphere was relaxing and unpretentious. We had a blast and will definitely return soon. Highly recommended.
Enjoyable meal in French like bistro style. Situated in very lively part of the city; just across from famous Federal Hill food hall. The service is excellent without pretentious of big restaurants. Every thing was fresh and tested exceptionally delicious. Will return for sure. Highly recommend for anyone who likes good food.
The cover band playing during dinner (Thursday) was fun and lively. SOBO has good happy hour specials until 7pm. Specialty burger and the cod entree were delicious!
The food at SoBo Cafe is always top-notch---whether it be comfort food or something more elaborate. The chef is equally proficient at everything from roast chicken to burgers to special dishes. The service is friendly and efficient, and the ambience is very relaxed. After everyone's struggles during the pandemic, it was nice to see a good crowd there, too!
great service and food! cute area for outdoor searing and not too loud
We have never had a bad experience here and have been enjoying SoBO Cafe for years!
We went to eat outside the other evening and had great service and great food and they had fun live music inside! The owners and staff make everyone feel so welcome!
A great dinner with terrific food, service, and a table outside enjoying the street scene. Really enjoyed the sweet corn flatbread to share as an appetizer. For main, had new item on the menu that I will be getting again: linguine with shrimp, basil, heirloom tomatoes, and light white wine cream sauce. For dessert shared a rum cake dusted with cinnamon and fresh strawberries and whipped cream on top—a combo that really works! There is a reason we go to SoBo Cafe again and again.
Came here for the first time last night. Stellar service from the brunette woman at the host stand, she made sure we got an outdoor table as requested on the reservation. My burger was delicious and I’m a self-admitted burger snob. Will absolutely be back.
Mac and cheese is amazing. And the bacon on the salad is ‘really good’ like the menu says.
SoBo never disappoints. Outstanding food and service. Two large parties made the noise level too high.
We went with a guest with Celiac Disease. This restaurant answered all of our questions and double-checked ingredients to make sure there was no gluten. The food and the service were excellent, and we will certainly be back.
I had a nice salad + shrimp pasta dish made with freash veggies. Wife had "the best clams" she had ever eaten.
Excellent service and very good food. We enjoyed our dinner there.
The food was really good
Great service, great food and fun atmosphere. Great find in Federal Hill.
Food was amazing!
A wonderful gem in Federal Hill. Food is wonderful. Service is good. If you pick SoBo Cafe, you have made a great choice
Hospitality was fantastic!
One of our favorite places to eat! The food is consistently good, and the staff are great. The outdoor space is beautiful on a nice evening.
I really enjoyed my meal at SoBo cafe. The staff was friendly, food was tasty, and the service was quick!
Great food, service and cozy ambiance. They are also implementing good, safe precautions during the pandemic.
SoBo Cafe has been one of our favorite restaurants for many years. Where else can you get to eat a fabulous Chicken Pot Pie. Every dish was cooked just right and with a excellent presentation.
Amazing food and service, as always!
Amazing little restaurant! Service was wonderful, food was delicious, couldn’t recommend more!
Delicious food; excellent service; nicely spaced tables - couldn’t be better.
