    I was with family from out of town and they wanted to do brunch. Took a chance on this place and came out like a champ. We all enjoyed the food. The fried chicken French toast was amazing. So were the shrimp and grits. They have bottomless mimosas as well for us day drinkers.

    I had high expectations for this place leading to dinner with my fiancé upon arrival the scenery was welcoming and clean and the overall environment was very comforting and pleasant. But the only thing that threw our visit their off was the food itself, both my partner and I were sick throughout the night taking turns in the bathroom after our dinner. The food seemed like nice eye candy but slightly disappointing after eating.

    The food was amazing. This place is an absolute gem in Orlando. We had about 5-6 small plates and shared a few large plates. All were terrific. The dumplings were flavorful, the pork belly was perfect, the drinks were spot on. Great bourbon selection and dessert was perfect. Pumpkin bread pudding was delightful. We will definitely be back soon and often.

    We decided to try SoCo after a matinee performance at Dr. Phillips. We were celebrating a birthday and an anniversary. Reservations online were easy. We were early but seated at our reservation time. We enjoyed a drink from the bar in the meantime. Food was excellent. Our waitress was so nice and a great representation for the restaurant. Thanks for a nice evening.

    This was our second time choosing Soco for our pre-theatre meal. My dining partner had the special pecan crusted halibut and loved it. I had the scallops and they fell short of my expectations. The vegetable served was the star of the plate. I am gluten intolerant and the server was very knowledgeable as to what on the menu was GF. We'll go back again I am sure.

    Had an enjoyable time at the Sunday Brunch. The food was good, but a bit over-priced. It was not prepared in any special or unique way. Just over-priced. Compared to similar dining establishments, this one was not anything special. Should not be too difficult to find a comparable restaurant with more reasonable prices.

    Megan & Andrew were amazing. They kept our glasses full, very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. Favorite servers. Request them only. The restaurant was very nice good ambiance a little loud but you have to expect that with the parties and it being brunch hour. Food was very filling. We had the breakfast burger, French toast & chicken, fried green tomatoes, and the biscuits. Mouth watering! Can’t wait to go back.

    Jefferson gave the perfect balance of service. The woman who sat us, however, lacked the appearance of enjoying her job or the desire to be in the front of house at all. We will most definitely be back, hopefully to be served by Jefferson.

    We were dining here to determine if we would book the restaurant for our wedding party. After emailing their dining coordinator last week with no response, we were happy to find out she was in the restaurant and would come over to speak to us. She never came over. Our food was okay. The service was bad. Then had to pay $8 for parking (minor bit was a consideration when thinking about our guests). The ONLY positive about our experience was the coffee. Unfortunately, my cup was empty and unnoticed by our server. This restaurant and our experience was a total disappointment.

    Service was incredibly slow. It was pride so it was busy. (I’ve seen it busy for brunch before). We had friends at a neighboring table come much later, but they were promptly served beverages and food when we wait so long for ours, granted they had a different server. We decided to end our brunch without actually being done — just get the check because it was taking way too long. Brunch was not a good decision that day because it really ruined all of our moods. I’ve dined before and it was delicious. However, the hostess was incredibly friendly and accommodating. I’ve seen her multiple times and each time, she’s been wonderful.

    Horrible food, yuppie concoctions of classic southern cuisine. Knock-offs with crap ingredients. Wait staff seemed bothered by questions and anytime we waived them down for refills because they couldn’t be bothered to check in on us. I will never go back, even for free food.

Great job for the restaurant, 4 at our table had the night special plate a Red Fish, my wife had the pork belly, I had the fried chicken. Everything was delicious.
