                                            This excellently located restaurant consistently delivers high quality dining experiences. The menu is varied enough to satisfy most any taste but limited enough for each item to reflect the touch of highly skilled artistic chef, pastry chef and staff. Waiters are personable and very efficient. This is a can’t miss dining experience in Greenville.

                                            The food was very good and the presentation excellent. They forgot to bring us bread we had to ask for it . The crab cakes were excellent. The wine we picked out was not as sweet as we like but it was drinkable.

                                            Our waiter Brian was great, attentive. We had a reservation for 8pm, didn’t get seated till 8:40. I feel when you make a reservation a week ahead you shouldn’t have to wait 40 min. for your table! A suggestion have a hostess that knows what she is doing! This is a high end restaurant, it should start with the hostess, the first person you are in contact when you arrive.

                                            The restaurant has excellent food, good service and nice ambience. The price is moderately expensive but the quality is high. The location in downtown Greenville is convenient and the valet parking a plus.

                                            We got a table upstairs looking over the kitchen. We both cook and found it fascinating. The food was excellent as was the service. We went on the early side and fortunately were inside when it started pouring. People sitting out on patio had to rush in, not sure that would have been a great dining experience.

                                            The food is fantastic at Soby’s (I highly recommend the duck confit and pine cone dessert). What really makes Soby’s special is the staff. Our server, Kyle, was incredibly knowledgeable about the food and wine he was serving and very willing to share his expertise.

                                            We had the striped bass & the shrimp & grits. Both were fabulous. Shrimp & grits had that little bit of spice but not hot spicy, lots of shrimp and just enough grits. Striped bass was flavorful and light. Waitress was very attentive. Only “complaint” and it wasn’t really, but we sat right next to the sidewalk outside. So if you don’t like people walking by or dogs, ask for a different table. We didn’t mind. I would definitely return. Oh and they had quite an extensive wine& cocktail list. All good.

                                            I was supposed to meet someone for a date, and they ended up standing me up. I told the hostess it would be only one for the reason, and she got me the best seat in the house!! They were super sweet and attentive, ill definitely be back (hopefully this time with an actual person lol!)

                                            Braised Beef was not the tender fall apart entrée that we used to. Maybe going on a big day like Mother's Day wasn't ideal. We did receive a (1) dessert to go although 2 people at the table had the same dish. Long story short, this won't turn me away from Soby's but I will think twice when going on a National Recognized Holiday.

                                            Mother’s Day/wife birthday. Let me say…I have always spoken HIGHLY of Soby’s. I’ve encouraged numerous people to go there. The last couple times were very disappointing. My small portion of mashed potatoes were smooth and a little opaque. That means watery. Lacking any texture or flavor. Fried chicken was good. Just good. I was served SEVEN green beans next to my 1/2 cup of potatoes. $24.00!!! My wife’s French Toast was just average. Not thick brioche bread. “standard “ pullman loaf. For $21.00!!! Salmon-again- super small portions. I just can’t spend $150 and leave hungry! No dinner rolls. Menu choices are not appealing. Im a chef. And I expect better Sobys.

                                            Overall a good, reliable experience from one of downtown Greenville's institutions at this point. This trip had an unusually long wait for our food after ordering and the steak doneness was pretty far off what we requested. Pleasant service though and a good meal for a special occasion.

                                            We were seated on time, cocktails were served. A missed appetizer service, however was eventually served. Dinner was delicious for all. Sat at the bar following dinner and service was excellent. Will definitely return to Sobys.

                                            Salmon with eggs Benedict was awesome. Can't wait for our next trip to Greenville to try more.

                                            The service was slow for the number of patrons in the restaurant. The food, as always, was excellent. We continue to love Soby's and will plan visits for major celebrations there in the future.

                                            Took my husband for his birthday. We sat outside which was nice as it was a beautiful evening weather wise and the noise level was much better than inside. Our server was great and as always, the food was delicious.

                                            The food and service were good. The noise level as with most of these types of venues does not allow for a sociable conversation.

                                            Soby’s has always been our go to place when we visit Greenville to go to the Peace Center. The wait staff has always been really good, the food very tasty and the ambience positive. We really enjoy sitting outside when the weather is pleasant. We have turned our adult kids to Soby’s and they loved everything about it.
