The pecan-crusted snapper was one of the best dishes I've ever had. Outstanding! Loved the place.
Delicious food. Loved the meatloaf and the grouper. Biscuits were great too. Awesome service. Thanks, Casey! All-around terrific night.
Was enjoying a birthday dinner with friends from London. Andre took exceptional care of us as always, as did our server. Really went over the top with some b-day desserts at end of meal. Our British friends are quite the foodies, but thought this was the best meal during their 3 week visit. Thanks SoCo for another wonderful experience!
Our drinks came out after our appetizers, and we were the only ones in the restaurant. It was a fine experience, but nothing to rave about.
We had an "odd" experience several months ago and since that time SOCO has gone to great lengths to make sure that we've had a great dining experience when we've come in to eat. The food is always amazing and the servers are fantastic. Highly recommend to anybody on the fence about whether or not to try it. Yum!!
Fantastic food and great service!!
I absolutely love this place!! It’s affordable and the food is simply amazing! My brunch fav in Orlando!
Wonderful experience at SoCo, the food was top notch! We started with the chicken and dumplings to share, which came with lobster dumplings! Wow, so good! My wife had the Korean fried chicken and I the grilled meatloaf. Both were outstanding however the chicken was perhaps the best fried chicken we’ve ever sampled. Tempura batter for the chicken really made it crunch and there was some nice heat to the plate, awesome. The meatloaf was very good, but there’s only so much you can do to improve meatloaf, probably won’t order that again. It came with lobster mashed potatoes which was fantastic! Great location, great ambiance and the staff was very attentive. This is an A+ food joint in Orlando, definitely a winner. Put it on your list!
I truly enjoyed eating here. The food was amazing and our server (wish I remembered her name) was so polite and attentive to our needs.
Great restaurant for food, drink and friends!
My older brother and his wife were down from Vermont to celebrate his 71st Birthday and our great weather. They have eaten in the world's best restaurants and expected me to choose a great place for our dinner --- so the pressure was on me. I went on line to check out all of the Best Restaurants within 10 miles of downtown Orlando, read all of the reviews, especially food/menus, service and price. I was about to put the trigger on a reservation at other restaurant when I remembered Soco. Many months ago, my wife (a vegetarian) and I had a great meal at Soco and we were sure Soco wouldn't disappoint us.
We were shown to a great table at the front windows overlooking the outside patio (good to people watching). It was also nice that we could look into the kitchen to see what is being prepared/cooked/served.
We all ordered drinks, "Small Plate" appetizers, salads and entrees: brother ordered Short Ribs, his wife ordered Hanger Steak, my wife ordered Cauliflower steak and I ordered meatloaf. The service and food were excellent - everything was hot or cold as it should be and on time.
Everyone agreed that our meals were excellent and we will come back to Soco.
Took my family here from out of town as a special meal. Every order at our table was incredible. Very good service and atmosphere. We had two young kids and the staff was very conscious of them and helpful. Highly recommended!
Dinner out and a show at dr Phillips. Perfect evening.
Great experience. Every time I try to elaborate I get logged out. You may want to look into that.
The service was superb! Our waitress (Marcy)was very attentive but not hovering. The food was excellent..for appetizers...I had the steak tartar and my guest had the dumplings for the entrees, she had the “cauliflower steak and I had the pecan crusted grouper with shrimp hush puppies ....
Outside seating or bar seating both looked like viable options too.
Excellent food and ambiance but bar service was delayed
We were trying this restaurant for our daughter's graduation dinner for 10 and were very impressed by the friendly and helpful wait staff as well as management that checked on us throughout our meal. The food was fantastic - we will be back to celebrate graduation ! :-)
Great place with fantastic food. Good mix for a successful business dinner. The suggestions from the waitstaff did not disappoint!!
We were visiting from out of town and decided to have dinner to celebrate a birthday. The service was exceptional and the food was very good. I would highly recommend SOCO to anyone looking for a great meal.
The food was amazing, not one of us had a bad meal. The appetizers recommended were out of this world. The service was top notch and our server Jefferson is a gem.
Soco is the perfect spot for a great dinner before catching a show at Dr Phillips Center. There was plenty of parking available in the adjacent garage at a very reasonable rate.
Enjoyed the food and atmosphere. A nice place to dine and mingle.
Not so many selections for gluten free individuals. Some items were a bit spicy.
Just love SoCo! I was in town on business for a few days and this place was a “must” for dinner. I come back whenever I’m in town and have never been disappointed. I especially enjoy introducing SoCo to my friends and associates.
Brunch was absolutely excellent! This is one of our go-to brunch places downtown.
Great brunch and good location. Give yourself enough time for parking
SoCo is one of the best places I've been in last decade. Food is beyond expectation. Delicious , tasty. I could go back in a heart beat. I wish wasn't that far.
A lovely evening (that called for outside dining), guests from out of town (that called for a place that would deliver with flair) and SoCo was the choice...even with service that was just a bit spotty, the experience was a winner. A good bet for a nice evening!
Our waiter was very helpful as was the entire staff. Great recommendations and wonderful food. Very unique combinations and sides; everything tasted wonderful! Plus, we were informed we would have 15% taken off the bill because we mentioned we were going to see a play at the Dr. Phillips Center! We will make plans to return!
We knew nothing about Soco prior to going and was thrilled with restaurant and Open Table providing us with ease of reservation
Great service great food.
We dine here every time we come to Orlando.
Attended for the first time and Simply put...Amazing!
SoCo is delicious! I really appreciate that they always have a vegan option on the menu. Being able to dine at a restaurant where options for all dietary needs. Happy Hour is on point and every Thursday. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu, personable, and thoughtful. He was able to help me in ordering items and modifying to make them vegan friendly.
SOCO is our favorite restaurant.
We had a date at Soco a few years back, this place has become our romantic date spot for special occasions. The food is always amazing and the ambiance makes for a memorable evening.
My colleague had the hanger steak which was excellent. I had the braised short ribs which were "okay" but not something I would have again. Our waiter was okay but the service was slow and intermittent. I would go again but to try something different.
Phenomenal food service and atmosphere
Always can count on great food!
Our first visit. We loved it! Great food, service. We will be back soon!
The food is rooted in, but not confined by, southern cooking traditions. Innovative and fun. Delicious. The only downside for us—too loud inside.
