    We went for brunch. Dinners have always been great- that’s why we came here. But I’ve got to say, both our meals were substandard. Overpriced and underdelivered on the fried bologna sandwich - the potatoes seemed frozen, and the frittata had the consistency of a sponge - but the salsa was good. Our waitress was good but when I asked the fellow who delivered our food if I could have a little bread, he just grunted “we don’t have bread for brunch.”

    Service was good, prompt, which can be hard to find these days. Food was just ok. Companions’ pork dishes were over-cooked and presentation was ordinary. I had the marinated tofu and veggies. It was good, but all were over priced. I’d call it a reliable standby for atmosphere and service. Just wish the food and wine list were of better quality. Meh.

    We had the best fried green tomatoes we ever tasted for an appetizer. The crab cakes were moist and full of crabmeat and the short rib was tender. We highly recommend Soby's for dinner as the food and service are excellent. We were glad we had reservations as the restaurant was bustling with hungry patrons waiting for seating.

    This was my first time eating at Soby's. My son & I decided to eat there because it was close to the Peace Center & we had tickets for "Hamilton." We loved everything about this place. I would highly recommend the drink "Lady Diana." We also tried the grilled octopus as an appetizer & it was great. Our waitress was fantastic & made sure we were out the door so we were not late for the musical.

    If I had known my experience would be like this, there are plenty of other amazing places to eat downtown that I would have chosen instead. I have never had worse service. We went for Father’s Day and opted to eat outside around 2 pm. That was the first mistake. Took 10 minutes for anyone to even show up to our table. After drink orders were taken, it took 15 more minutes to get a club soda to the table and 25 minutes for the bloody mary to get to the table. The bloody mary was awful and came topped with only a lime and a lemon. The food was fine but the whole service experience was so upsetting that we were just ready to leave. I had to go inside searching for silverware since our table was only set with two for a party of three and we hadn’t seen our server in a while. While inside getting silverware from the bartender, our server was standing at the bar nibbling on something and loading drinks for about two or three different tables instead of bringing them as they were ready for each table. I can only assume that is why it took so long for our drinks to come. I also had to go searching for pepper because we were brought a pepper grinder that had nothing in it. The hostess was good help and able to grab one for us. The server was very kind, however the efficiency was not there. She had longer blonde hair, however I don’t believe she ever told us her name. This was our first Father’s Day since our parents divorce and I am VERY disappointed. I tried my hardest to book a place for a decent meal with my dad, but instead I had to sit there and listen to him say how horrible the service was and how he was ready to just leave. I would have asked for a manager if I wasn’t busy leaving in tears. Probably will never come back after that.

    Perfect! The best pancakes I ever had in the US (been here 5 yrs). The pancakes' textures are great, fluffy, and moist. The sharpness and the freshness of the lemon added a good kick to the pancakes. The syrup has a hint of floral aroma, which was a perfect balance with the acidity of the pancakes.

    We arrived just in time! Drove from Asheville. I had requested ground floor seating and a booth if possible. They accommodated both. The food was delicious, and the peach dessert was a delightful surprise. Our server, Rachel, was a pleasure. So knowledgeable and able to grant our wishes...share crabcake entree between two. Soby's has become our go to restaurant before shows at the Peace Center. Yum!

    The portions were meager. Understand that this is not going to be a large portion restaurant. However one spoon of mash potatoes is poor. Also, $9 for a Caesar salad with a few leaves of lettuce barely registered in the bowl. Visited a similar restaurant one night later that far exceeded Soby’s.

    We went before a show at the Peace Center and knew we didn’t have much time to eat so we just ordered 2 appetizers, crab cake, and a salad. The salad was small and had no dressing. Plus I was charged $19 for chicken to be added to the top. The calamari was rubbery and overall the food was mediocre. The service was fast (and we were thankful) but the waiter was not super friendly. The other staff was though, so maybe he was having a bad night. We just don’t want to go back because the food was definitely not good or worth $100.
