Would have been 5 Stars if OpenTable didn’t have to contact us (again) that Soby’s showed we did not attend our reservation

Our experience was exceptional. Mike was a great and very knowledgeable server and helped us make great selections. The fried chicken and braised short ribs were excellent. The only issue was the Carolina bog was not boggy enough as the rice was too fluffy. The short ribs were accompanied by baked beans, slaw and cornbread madeleines which made the whole dish " lip smacking slap yo Momma good"! I literally sopped up every bit of the meal.
Soby's is now own my list for every trip to Greenville! J Ned

I had terrible service no sooner than we ordered salads they appeared. Then after the salad within minutes my entrée's came out. So we were finished in 40 minutes with the rush act. The waitress did not know how to stagger the meal. It was not a relaxing meal and I will not return. There are too many other restaurants to chose from.

I’ve always liked this restaurant. But my girlfriends dinner was definitely mediocre. Especially for the money. Halibut and beans. She said they tasted like canned beans with very little flavor. My pork was on the verge of being dry. I wonder if the kitchen has become too comfortable knowing they will always have customers. This is a bummer, because in the past we have always had good food.

It was our 39th Wedding anniversary and I noted that on reservation but nobody mentioned it at the restaurant which usually gets a mention if you note it when making reservation
Food and service were very good
Menu on Open Table was not updated and some items missing on menu at Soby’s
Our table was upstairs overlooking the kitchen but was very cold due to fans
Moved and was slightly better
Overall very good though

The food was delicious, the short ribs fell apart, the were tender and very moist. The filet was done perfect and very flavorful. Make sure to save room for the banana cream pie. The wait staff was attentive and so friendly and helpful. We’d go back in a heartbeat.

We enjoyed our dinners very much, especially the calamari. It was the best we've had in many years, very tender.

We both had the pork tenderloin. It was cooked nicely. However, I wasn't a fan of the sauce. I don't think it really added anything. But overall, it was very good and your restaurant enjoyable. Next time we come to Greenville, we will come again.

We visited Soby's for my birthday dinner with friends. I thought since it was a Monday night it would be quiet and not busy. Wrong! We ordered drinks which were slow to arrive. After bringing the drinks our waitress came to take our order and was very pleasant. I ordered a salad and my friend some soup before our meals. We had only had our drinks for a few minutes when the salad and soup appeared. Before we finished our drinks, dinner came. Dinner was tasty but the service was slow to get the bottle of wine we ordered. The ambience is very nice, but we would have appreciated some time to enjoy our drinks. When our waitress learned that it was my birthday, she put a candle in the pie. Overall, it was nice.
