Our party of 4 ate upstairs. We ordered from the Restaurant Week menu. The service was excellent and the food and portions were very good. The drink menu was a little complicated. Next time in Greenville we will probably return to Soby's.

Staff was not very accommodating we preferred to wait for a booth to open up to sit at. But we were told they couldn’t accommodate us in a rude tone. When I made reservations I mentioned we were celebrating my wife’s BD no acknowledgment from the staff at all. We were visiting from out of town if we return to Greenville we will not be dining here again.

Great spot for lunch, brunch or dinner. They also have a nice outdoor space that is heated. Try the crab cakes or Shrimp and grits. You will not be disappointed.

We were greeted and congratulated on our anniversary Throughout the evening multiple staff members too a moment to say Happy Anniversary as they passed our table.
Our waiter was personable and interactive without being intrusive. The service was impeccable with timely arrival of our food and monitoring of our needs.
The food presentation was excellent as was the taste. Definitely a wonderful evening.

Another great experience at Soby’s. Food and drinks were awesome. It was Restaurant Week so we both got something different and sampled each other’s. The butternut squash bisque was incredible! I don’t know how many people I told about it the next day. One of the best I’ve had. Will look forward to the next time.

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.

restaurant week is always a good time to go to Soby's and get a good deal and taste some of their regular items as well as some new things just for this special menu.

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.
