Not to sound like a broken record, I always have an exceptional meal when I go to Soco. This visit was no different. The staff has consistently impressed since my first visit, and Kyle continues that tradition. Definitely my go to restaurant when out with friends and the one I reccomend for an outstanding dining experience.

I had the Avocado Toast (very good) and the Lobster Benedict (Also very good). I would recommend both. I chose the Sangria while my date had a mimosa. We sat outside and it was very enjoyable and when weather is nice, better than inside. I suggest getting there early if you don't have reservations.

Brunch was very busy and the staff did an excellent job ensuring everyone was well taken care of. Food, as always, was exceptional. Kyle went out of his way to make sure each person he was taking care of felt like they were his top priority.

We first visited SOCO with the families Thursday evening before our son’s wedding. Everyone had such a wonderful time that my husband and I returned the evening after the wedding. Again, the service was wonderful and the food...delicious and beautifully presented. We love the atmosphere of SOCO and the location is perfect!

Jefferson was amazing! He is one of the waiters outside on Saturday’s and Sundays! He is so so friendly and attentive but not overbearing. Probably the best waiter I’ve ever had. The food was perfect as well as the bottomless mimosas. Beautiful restaurant, beautiful atmosphere, and beautiful staff. Thanks 💛

We loved the location, we loved our server (Genie) and the food was really good! But it was so over the top loud for a Thursday night, we could barely hear ourselves. I guess I'm old but I don't expect such a loud environment for a nice restaurant, (I get it for sports bars etc). But that is not the fault of the restaurant. Next time I might eat on the patio, but I would go back again. Loved the make your own Old Fashioned.

This restaurant was absolutely fantastic. From the atmosphere, food and our waitress, Carla everything was outstanding. We enjoyed several appetizers, our favorite being a house specialty, chicken and dumplings. The sauce that came with it should be a side to dip bread into it was that good. Portions were perfect size for sharing. We will definitely be back when we're in the Orlando area.

Love this place! Had a great meal, great service and great value. If you are attending a conference get away from the Sand Lake Road chains and come check this place out :). All was very good, but the side dishes were awesome! The brussel sprouts and "Other KFC" dishes were fantastic! Will be back.

First time there. Went for brunch. Ordered a bunch of things to share. Lobster eggs Benedict, chicken and French toast, fried green tomatoes, corn bread, and a side of bacon. Everything was delicious! Corn bread was just okay, nothing special but if you have a craving for it, you’ll be satisfied. Definitely order the first 2 items mentioned - you will not be sorry! Bloody Mary was just okay, have had much better. The service was not up to par. The restaurant was not full and it took a while for someone to take our order. The entrees came out first and then the apptz came out - weird. Waitress didn’t ask us mid meal how everything was or if she could get us anything else. She also told us she had just found out that she would be our waitress when she first arrived to take our drink orders in which we told her we were starving and ordered an apptz (that later came after the entrees.) What Soco’s has going for them is the food, the ambience, and the neighborhood. Food was delicious, restaurant is perfect for a bridal/baby shower or bday party. Had separate rooms that I’m sure you could ask to be seated in for larger groups. Afterwards we took a walk around the Thornton park neighborhood which was delightful. Definitely go to Soco’s for the brunch it is worth your time and money.

Hands down one of my favorite restaurants! We love to go for anniversary or birthday celebrations. We overspend (drinks, app, dinner & dessert) but it’s always worth it.

I would have rated this outstanding if it weren't for the table I was seated at. We were first timers here, with a reservation and were seated at a table that was up against a curtain quite uncomfortably. There were other tables available and I don't know why something so important is handled so matter of factly. The food was great, service was attentive save for the large parties they had, but I was uncomfortable the entire night.

Came here after hearing great reviews. First off, the restaurant is extremely loud inside. They had the music blaring and we could hardly hear one another when trying to have a conversation. Even the hostess said it was loud for her and she could barely hear anything! So we moved outside, where it intermittently smelled like sewer!

It took about 15 minutes for our server to come out and set our table. She was not friendly at all and seemed honestly annoyed that she was having to serve us. Additionally, after we were done eating our lunch and were waiting for the check she just disappeared for 20 minutes. I was in the service industry for years and would never treat a customer this way- it was extremely rude.

Needless to say, whereas the food was great, I can get great food at other places that have much better service. I will not be wasting my money here again.
