Beautiful restaurant right across the street from the Peace Center. Excellent food and service in a charming atmosphere. Great little, sophisticated town with many restaurants and shops. Will visit again! The Peace Center is a modern theatre with great acoustics and not a bad seat in the house. Highly recommended.

All oue meals were excellent and our server, Michelle was outstanding. Hard to pkease my mom, but she loved the she-crab soup and the crabcakes. I had never had potato-crusted grouper, but it was cooked perfectly and it was a good-sized portion with a slightly crisp topping.

First visit to downtown Greenville. Soby’s is excellent. All aspects of restaurant are top-notch. Wife and I had a terrific Russian River Pinot Noir picked from a unique and broad wine inventory. Delicious salad and perfectly prepared salmon for dinner, and a ridiculous desert. Can’t wait to go back !

Excellent dinner and service from Julie. I couldn't decide between the crab cake and shrimp & grits, so she gave me a half portion of both! Both were excellent. Husband enjoyed the filet mignon.

The entire meal was very average. Service was slightly above average, but we had to wait far too long for any drinks from the bar. The appetizer was disappointing. The main course was good, but nothing spectacular. We expect more from Soby's. I have already cautioned several co-workers who asked me about my experience.

Over priced buffet food for Sunday Brunch. I was not impressed. The omelettes were cooked too hard. The salmon had no flavor and the shrimp and grits were too watery. I will not go back.

Waited over 30 minutes to be seated for a RESERVATION, was charged for a chicken entree we did not order, and then double charged the bill and the end of the night and had to call the restaurant and be refunded. For the price you'd expect a little better...

We had reservations at 6. We didn’t get seated until 6:30. The food was ok but not worth the prices. We had been told the food was excellent and we were very disappointed.

As always the food and service were impeccable. We’re a tad disappointed that although we had reservations at 6 we weren’t seated til shortly after 6:30. We were anxious because we were trying to make the show. The staff however got us taken care of and was a delightful dinner!

Food was amazing. However the portions were a bit small. Not a big deal for my wife and I, but it could be a deal breaker for some. I had the braised beef short ribs, with the horseradish mashed potatoes. Couldn’t have been happier. The sauce on the short ribs was great. My wife had the bacon wrapped pork tenderloin, which she thoroughly enjoyed. Server was quick and friendly.

I am in disbelief over my most recent visit to Soby's. After calling twice to confirm surprise dessert and champagne for my boyfriend and me on our anniversary date night, we were never given what I had requested and was promised by the staff during our visit. We have been regulars at Soby's for years and I thought this was the place to go to ensure a special evening. Disappointed and probably will not return. Quite sad after so many years of tradition.

Food was good. But for $75 (no alcohol) for two we were still hungry when we left Soby's. Consider offering a small salad with the entrees.
