The food and service were excellent! We went to celebrate my wife's birthday and they presented her with a lovely card as we entered. All of our appetizers and entrees were outstanding and delicious. We highly recommend Soby's!

Didn't get served our brunch for an hour, though it was tasty when it arrived and our server was very apologetic. Great outdoor ambiance.

Another very good evening at Soby's. We have visited several times and the experience was good again. Food was particulalry good - wife had her favorite crab cakes and I had the pork chop special. Service was good, but we had the sense that maybe she had one too many tables (pretty typical these days). We will go back.

Excellent food and excellent service with a very knowledgeable wait staff and the head chef has some really top notch dishes with the fried chicken, braised short ribs, and the fried green tomatoes were the best I've had.

Server not attentive. Went to remove cocktail before I was finished. She crab soup good- server offered no bread or crackers. Had to call her as she passed by our table and didn’t ask if soup was acceptable. Entrees arrived warm - waitress didn’t check to see how entrees were until we just had bites left on our plate. Ambiance very nice. Too bad her mediocre service dictated our experience.

I made reservations for our anniversary and was sat at the table at the front door. Not very romantic and very busy and loud. I may need to call the restaurant next time instead of stating anniversary on Open Table website.
Food was good though

Amazing. Everyone speaks so highly of Sobys so we decided to give it a try. Our server Grant was helpful without being over bearing. His recommendations were great and the food was just as good as expected. The portion sizes were also perfect. Dining outside was beautiful with the lights and street performer across the street. It was an absolute hit for our first date night in what feels like forever. We are already trying to plan our next visit.
