Another excellent experience at SOCO for brunch. Consistency is the sign of a great restaurant and SOCO delivers that consistency in both their food and service. The jewel of the downtown neighborhood.

We had a 6 pm rez but arrived about 30-40 min early as we had driven from a town 1.5 hr away. When we approached the reception desk we were greeted by the smiling and welcoming face of Karen, who kindly seated us early and continued on as our waitress. She explained the menu and specials well and answered all our questions. Professional and courteous treatment paired with fantastic southern fusion food made for a great experience. Highly recommend SOCO and hope you ask for Karen to be your server...you'll be happy with both!

Took 15 minutes to get service and couldn’t get the meal I wanted because there was in issue in the kitchen and I feel like I was overcharged but the food was delicious, I’m willing to give them a second chance.

Portions very small. My husband had chicken and French toast. Not much chicken mostly batter. He left hungry and got a snack. My shrimp and grits good. Wish there were more grits.

Everything was excellent except that it took a little long for drinks and food to come out. But we were in the mood to sit and chat so it was fine.

The server was excellent, staff was very friendly; however, the food lacked a bit. The Tuesday wings for $10 was breaded way too much to bite in and taste the meat. The vegetarian meal was very tasty.

I wish this restaurant was in Oklahoma, we need a modern southern restaurant like this up in Oklahoma. We have a few, but I feel their menu is just more adventurous than the ones up here. The handmade lobster and chicken dumpling was delectable with the savory soy butter, it was the single best bite of the night.

Outstanding in every way! However, you'll need a reservation since it's the best restaurant in the downtown area. You can tell this is a very well managed restaurant and every detail is perfect. Great food, wait staff and atmosphere. I need to stop writing my review of SOCO because it's getting harder and harder to get a reservation.

Excellent dinner (though my salad was a bit overdressed). All four in the party enjoyed the evening, and the service was outstanding. Really good high-end southern dining.

Great brunch spot in the heart of Thornton Park Orlando!

The service was decent, it seemed like our waitress was taking care of the entire restaurant. She was helpful however seemed very stressed and pulled in multiple directions.

The food was fantastic! Great flavors and portions were on point. The chef and his team are really cooking Fantastic dishes!!!

I wish they had some sweet stuff on the menu for the brunch! Looking forward to having a sweet app before the entrée.

This was my first time at Soco and I must say, I will be coming back. Great food and service. The drinks were just the way I like them. I had the cosmopolitan and it was one of the best ones I’ve had. Ashlan was our server and she was amazing! Definitely recommend this place and one I will add to my go-to list.

Another outstanding evening at Soco. A++ on all attributes. Food is remarkably delicious with unique flavors that just blow me away. You can’t come close to making any of this at home. Such a delightful experience. Crowd and noise level perfect — just enough energy, but mellow overall so you can really absorb everything vs being over-stimulated and feeling rushed. So good!
