Our table was at the top of the stairs and everyone passed by, the waiter was indifferent and I got very sick on the food.

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.

Anniversary date. Very special occasion. Started at a smaller table and asked for a more private booth and was happily accommodated. Great quiet atmosphere. Best Old Fashioned I’ve experienced! Overall a wonderful time with the love of my life.

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.

I'd not been to Soby's in a few years, and thought my wife and I would return. Had reservation, but still seated 20 min late (Ok, that can happen - not a huge deal). Waitress seemed rushed and disinterested overall. Was kind of shocked by the $11 Fried Green Tomatoes having only three tiny slices of one tomato - but they were pretty good. Our entrees were a bit cold (like they'd been sitting a bit), but we decent enough. Just not exceptional. Not the $120 dinner I'd come to expect in Greenville. Loud, poor service. It's basically an Applebees with better food. Not terrible - there are just better options for the price.

Really, really enjoyed dinner here! Service was excellent and the energy of the place is great with music that sets a nice vibe for a great evening. I marked down a star only because the banana cream pie we had for dessert wasn’t sweet and seemed to be more just nice wiped cream and white chocolate shavings. Soby’s is a pastry chef short of perfection!!
