    Food was eccellent as always but they were to eager to have us leave. They tried clearing my wife’s dinner twice before she was done. Waitress took our order and gave us our bill. We never saw her in between. Service is usually good but not this time

    Yes the reservation was at 6 which we assumed would be more than enough time to get to the Peace Center. We were still waiting to be seated at 6:20. Extremely disappointed in that- nor an “I’m sorry” from the staff. “I’m sorry” goes a long way when you’re annoyed and hungry. The food was delicious as always and once we explained that we were in a hurry our server, Abbie, was on top of everything!! She was amazing -knowledge of the menu, giving suggestions for food and wine, making sure we got out as quickly as possible to catch the show. We made it just in time.

    I made my reservation a long time ago. We were placed in the bar area at a high top. Not what I was expecting. I finally had to get a waitresses attention to get waited on. Food selection wasn’t great. My salmon was awesome but sides were subpar.

    Food was perfect- every dish from salads to dessert. But our wait time was nearly an hour even with a reservation. The place was packed and they did what they could but our dinner was rushed due to a show start time that was 2 hrs from our reservation time. Wait staff was attentive as they could be with a completely packed house.

    Keri is awesome - after a wonderful meal and brilliant mocktails by the bartender we had the chocolate fondue and it dripped on my wife’s brand new sweater. Keri knew what to do. Got a tide pin got the stain out and that’s what separates a good restaurant from a great one.

    Had such a fun time @ Soby's last night. We were graced with the loft table with a view of the kitchen prep line and had a blast. Service was wonderful, truly enjoyed the mushroom crostini app, the She Crab soup, Shrimp and grits and the literally falling off the bone, lamb shank. Vanilla mousse dessert was such a fun surprise. While we came in wanting a bottle of Prisoner, if you are looking to get lost in an impressive wine menu, this is the place for you. Will definitely be returning next time we are in town as the fried chicken had our heads turning all night. Great experience.

    We enjoyed being @ Sobys Unfortunately the pork chop was tough. The lamb was warm the waiter did replace the first order, the plate was hotter than the lamb! The waiter was very kind as we didn’t pay for the pork chop meal which was very thoughtful of him. Could do with more fish on the menu!

    We were not asked whether we wanted to be seated indoors or outdoors. There were several empty tables inside. My husband had to ask for us to be seated indoors. The waiter did not speak on what specials were being offered. I did hear him speaking on specials with another couple who happened to be white. I have eaten at Sobys before and was very disappointed .
