Waiter was great, wish we remembered her name. Everything was promptly and courteously delivered to our table, as well as plates being constantly kept out of the way. Could not have had a better experience.

We had a great Sunday brunch at Soby’s. My wife and kids all enjoyed our meals and the service was awesome. It was our first time venturing back out to a restaurant and it was the perfect after-church meal. Thanks Soby’s for taking great care of us!

My wife and I really enjoyed Sony’s. Beautiful building. Great staff and superb food. I asked the waitress what she would get since everything sounded good to me. She suggested the fried chicken - which I would not have thought to order. It was probably the best chicken I have ever had. My wife had the crab cakes and was similarly impressed. We look forward to coming back here!

The food is always good and consistent. The crab cakes and the steak are always good. I was really disappointed that there was no filet, or crem brûlée on the menu. The downstairs and outside ambience is very nice. If you are put upstairs, as we were, it’s not so nice.

We ate outside at Sony’s and it was very nice. We have eaten inside before too and liked it, but with both social distancing and perfect weather, it was a great option.

Excellent food and service, but there was no social distancing at all. The tables were right next to each other as were the diners. Maybe, that is not a concern in SC.

Went in to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. Dinner was amazing, as well as drinks. Our waiter was wonderful! Manager cane over to congratulate us on our Anniversary and they even offered a free dessert.
We loved the experience and will be back for date night soon.

Food was excellent. We sat right above the kitchen and loved this. I made a reservation and noted that it was for my sister's 18th birthday and graduation. When Soby's called to confirm, they asked if we had any special requests and I reiterated the special occasion. Nothing was said or done to commemorate this during our experience at Soby's. Our server was polite but didn't add much otherwise. I wish that we would have gone somewhere else to celebrate.

We had a terrible waiter. He didn’t ask for our drink order, didn’t get my child’s food and never even responded half the time we asked for things. Very very disappointed bc we go to Sony’s A LOT and it’s usually a favorite.
