I loved this restaurant from the moment we walked in. It is a beautiful “space”, yes I watch way too much HGTV. Marci, our waitress was amazing and very attentive. I was allowed to bring in my own bottle of wine got a small corkage fee. The boiled peanut hummus served with these amazing pickled vegetables and perfectly toasted bread was out of this world. I had the ribeye steak and my date had the pecan encrusted halibut. Both main courses were very good. We also enjoyed a side of collard greens. They were cooked perfectly. My final suggestion, actually it was Marci’s suggestion, was order the biscuits. We split one with dinner and had the rest with breakfast the following morning. They melt in your mouth because they are that good. This is the first restaurant I have been to since the pandemic began. The tables are properly spaced, the employees are all wearing masks, gloves, and continually sanitizing. It was a very much needed evening out for me and this restaurant and staff made it very enjoyable and stress free. I will definitely be back again soon.

The brunch was phenomenal. The food looked and tasted exquisite. Fresh ingredients and impeccable flavors brought simple dishes to a peak. We had the lobster eggs benedict and crispy salmon and potato cakes... they were divine. Light and airy, not heavily seasoned and not overdone. It was a great meal.

We went there for the Brunch on Fathers Day and it was GREAT!! Our server, Randi was wonderful. We were unsure of the food, being that it was our first visit but she made sure to change that FAST! The service, food and overall experience was awesome. We will definitely be back!!

Soco is a must visit if you are in the Orlando area! We loved the variety of offerings and everything that we ordered tasted so fresh. My meal was mostly fried and I had no heartburn after dining at Soco which rarely happens. We can't wait to go back and try brunch!

My hubby and our friends had brunch on Saturday. Jefferson, our server was attentive, courteous, funny and we observed he followed all social distance and sanitizing guidelines.
The food was 100% spot on. Our friends had the porkbelly, biscuits and gravy and loved it! I had the salmon cake and poached eggs-ahhhmazing! Hubby had chicken n dumplings and side of hash and eggs, loved every bite.
We were so happy to get out for brunch and even happier to be brunching at SOCO!

I love everything about this place, from the downtown location, interior ambiance, menu choices, wine list, food taste and mixologist level bartenders. It's my favorite date morning/noon/night restaurant, hands down. Basically, it's my go-to place to be when I've got a few extra dollars to spend and the daughter is at the grandparents.

Food was very good for the price point. Service was knowledgeable, nice, and multiple servers/hosts told us Happy Anniversary. Only issue was my husband had called earlier in the day to have wine and champagne on the table when we arrived, but there was no special decorations on the table as he was promised and the wine and champagne were brought to the table after we sat down. Otherwise, food and service were good.

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.

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 💛
