No servers were assigned to our outside table
We waited 20 minutes before had to flag a nice young lady down
She was great but we were there 30 minutes before we got water
Please make sure in the future all tables are covered

Just a fun interesting restaurant with comfort food a plenty and a fantastic Bourbon selection. My husband chose the meatloaf and I chose the pecan crusted Florida Snapper. Both outstanding! The staff is warm, friendly and engaging.

The southern comfort cuisine was delicious. The atmosphere was warm and inviting while quiet enough for easy conversation at our table. Our service was attentive and engaging. I would highly recommend Soco!

We discovered SOCO when our son was living down the street and we all went back a few years ago.

On a business:pleasure trip to Orlando, and we had to go back. The staff can make or break your evening and they exceed ones epectations. I love the ambience, warm, comfortable and well designed space. The food is excellent and next time we have a chance to dine at SOCO, we would go out of our way to get there, drove 30 minutes this time, so worth it!! Already have recommended it to others.

Brought an out of town guest to this interesting and generally excellent restaurant in the Thorton Park neighborhood. If you love "upscale southern food" this will not disappoint.

Our Friendsgiving dinner was exceptional and made even better by our server, Jamie! She gave us each a glass of champagne to toast the occasion. What fun!

Love this restaurant so went for a friends B-day. Amazing brunch with an awesome selection. Bottomless mimosas and the biscuits are something special. Service was outstanding although the place was hopping. A bit loud, but the service and food made up for it. Will definitely return!

This was our first time back in a few years. We weren’t disappointed but things could have been better. Apps came at the right time but the entrees seemed to take a while. All four of us enjoyed our choices, Korean Chicken, Cauliflower, Pork, and Scallops. We weren’t as impressed with the fried green tomatoes (too hard) and the fried oysters. But overall, it was a nice evening.

The food tasted wonderful, and our server was very attentive. One of the reasons we tried Soco was because of their gluten free menu, but gluten-filled hush puppies came on my plate (😭) and we witnessed one of the cooks angrily throw away scallops that had been returned - very unprofessional and off-putting. We enjoyed our meal overall, but could easily find another restaurant with equal quality for much less than the $106 my husband and I spent.

We were in town to hit the parks and always have brunch on our way out of town. Our last brunch place the food and service had taken a dive and we were on the lookout for a new place. Soco hit the spot. Food and service were great. Good diverse menu, had options for everyone (even picky friends!) Drinks were yummy. Place was packed, good thing we had reservations. Noise level was high, so don't go if you are looking for a quiet spot. Parking was $10 across the street behind another building. There is NO on street parking for this location.

Great service and food. Our server was amazing and very funny. Salmon cakes Yummy! The only thing I would change is the amount of tables inside. It was full and there’s too much noise to have a conversation. Also there’s not enough space for the amount of tables.

The food was excellent and so was the service. I forgot my reading glasses and couldn’t see the menu and the server brought me a pair (I guess they keep them around). The ambiance is beautiful too. Lovely place with great food and not overpriced. Definitely will be back.

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.

Our dinner was creative and excellent quality, but Soco stands out because of it's service as well. Immediately friendly hostess, wonderful window seat location, exact timing of dinner to arrive for Dr. Phillips concert on time with wonderful recommendations and follow up by our waiter. Would return every time we are in Orlando for a concert!

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.
