We had an incredible meal last night at Soby’s. Our server’s name was Donny and he took great care of us and was very attentive and kind. Another server also made custom hot chocolates for both our daughters even though it wasn’t on the menu. I had the crab cakes and my husband had the shrimp and grits. So delicious! And the ambience was beautiful with a fire going in the fireplace on a cold night! We had some great Cabernet Sauvignon too!

Delicious food! Ordered from Restaurant Week (January 15, 2022) menu. Caesar salad, braised beef short ribs and brandy chocolate mousse for $35. Extremely crowded but still personalized service and comfortable seating.

All three of our party asked that our plate of food be returned to the kitchen to be heated as the food was only lukewarm when delivered to the table. The server was very accommodating and apologetic to our request.

I hadn't been to Soby's for a while and restaurant week came at a great time to go back. We each had the butternut bisque, delicious. Then, I had the osso bucco and my BIL had the braised beef short ribs, both flavorful and tender. For dessert from the three course meal, I had the brandy chocolate mousse, BIL had the strawberry semifreddo. Nice finish to an all round fantastic meal.

The service was horrible. It was as if we were an inconvenience to our server. My husband had to go to the bar to get a drink in the middle of our meal. The food was good but service was lacking.

At the beginning, my wife and I had thought that we would have an wonderful evening meal at this restaurant. But… firstly it started with the meal. We weren’t informed about the tuna cooked by “special” method: 10% fried and 90% sashimi style (rare). We refused to take it because we were not in a Japanese restaurant. This dish was changed by another cooked well done. The waitress who did not inform us apologized for her mistake. Also by saying sorry, we took our responsibility for not verifying for more details about the dish.

When checking bill, we were charged with $36 for “feature fry” item without any explanation. We did not want to ruin the other guests’s meals by complaining so that we just paid $90.72 plus 15% tip for the “wonderful” evening meal.

If someone was honest about it and took responsibility for the dish, the situation would have a better outcome. In conclusion, it was my bad because I were the one who chose this restaurant.

Soby's never disappoints! We have been coming to the Peace Center Broadway series with friends of years, and we have been able to visit many of Greenville's uptown restaurants. Soby's is definitely one of the best!
Their swordfish special with roasted brussels sprouts was excellent! WE will certainly be back.

We had the pimento cheese app and the calamari app. Both were delish! Calamari is lightly fried which I like and I love the sauce! Kid had fried catfish. Husband had crab cake. Friend had the short rib, which he loved. And I had the salmon. They were all good. I especially oved the crab cake. You can't go wrong. I loe the she crab soup also but knew I would be full after eating the biscuits, so opted out.

The food was excellent . The service was lacking . The waiter did inform us that several people had called out for the. We did not see any management staff. Perhaps they were helping in the kitchen. I am sure it is difficult to get committed workers these days .
