The food was great. The service was fair. She was very busy and the restaurant was packed. The only complaint I have is that we were seated outside and the aun was shining right in my face and it made it very hot and uncomfortable to eat let alone stay and enjoy the ambiance and company. We asked someone if we could move an umbrella and he did but it really didn’t help. Really not the restaurants fault but still made it unenjoyable.

Every item we tried on the magical dining menu was excellent. We also added the pork belly biscuits that were also tasty!

One of our favorite Sunday brunch haunts!
Bottomless mimosas, tasty plates, fabulous service and primo location with outdoor dining... a great formula for kicking off a great Sunday with friends!

It was a bday. We never received our desert which was supposed to come with the magic dinning experience. We didn’t receive anything special for the bday either. The food also took forever and the waitress blamed to it on having to deal with a bigger party which had nothing to do with us.

My fiancé and I came here for brunch. I had the shrimp and grits which were delicious, the portion was a bit smaller than I would have expected though. My fiancé had the French toast and chicken which he said was decent.. also the menu here on OpenTable says bottomless mimosas are $10 but they’re $15 so just FYI.

Good vibe upon entering and had a great seat on the outside Patio. Only problem we had was it took about 15’ to get water and place our order. Manager brought us water and apologized for the wait. Manager gave us a free round of drinks for our wait which was perfect. Food was excellent and good portions. Husband got the Snapper and it was amazing. I got the country fried cauliflower which was awesome and vegetarian:). Definitely go again

We came during happy hour to an empty dining room. I have a problem with restaurants offering happy hour to bar and outdoor patio patrons and not people in the dining room, especially when we were the only table. As for the food, I had salmon and it was delicious. It was on some type of grain that really had no flavor so I skipped it. The mussels were delicious to start, and my husband had the cheese plate and the steak and we split a peach and chantilly cream dessert, which was outstanding.

On this occasion, COCO your front desk seating person harassed my BF about his water fast and proceeded to stalk me to Starbucks about chewing gum after spending $100 in your establishment. No thank You. I loved soco before but now I can do without the harassment from
Low class Coco.

Lovely dinner with friends at SOCO on a Friday night. Everyone had something different. My pecan crusted snapper with lemon butter sauce was “melt in your mouth “ delicious! Everything went smoothly from arrival through dinner with our party of six. Pleasant atmosphere and nice wait staff. We will definitely return!

This was a wonderful experience and the food was phenomenal. The chicken and dumplings are to die for. Old fashions were spot on. Chicken wings one of a kind and the filet tender as can be. Would recommend to anyone who desires to visit Soco.

Was there last year and enjoyed the Jim Beam Single barrel offering and dinner was delicious. Came back a year later and the cheese plate was delicious, the fried chicken was out of this world. I was under the weather and on meds so i couldn't drink but my server made sure to make me a non-alcoholic cocktail so I wouldn't feel left out. It was so delicious I am considering giving up liquor :-).

Hostess was not very good...sat us in bar area. Didn’t care for one of the appetizers and server didn’t seem to care or offer a substitute. Bisque soup was not hot and asked for bread to get with it, was told they would give us some crostini, but then told us that those would take 15 minutes. Don’t know why they would suggest that to start with as it was obvious that I wanted something to go with the bisque...all seemed very disorganized

Ate at the bar. Michael served the best Cosmopolitan martini. He was very friendly and spent quite a bit of time with us. We had the cheese board. Excellent quality cheeses with toast points. Our entrees were very good. We have dined here at least once before in the dining room. We had a really lovely time. We’ll go back very soon.
