On this occasion, COCO your front desk seating person harassed my BF about his water fast and proceeded to stalk me to Starbucks about chewing gum after spending $100 in your establishment. No thank You. I loved soco before but now I can do without the harassment from
Low class Coco.

Nicole was our server and very helpful. The food was amazing and great portion size. We had the Korean Chicken, Pork Chip, filet and ribeye. All meals cooked perfect. We tried the dumplings and deviled eggs for apps. Excellent.

Food very salty. Cream cheese didn’t taste like cream cheese. Not enough salmon and bagel fell apart.

Lovely dinner with friends at SOCO on a Friday night. Everyone had something different. My pecan crusted snapper with lemon butter sauce was “melt in your mouth “ delicious! Everything went smoothly from arrival through dinner with our party of six. Pleasant atmosphere and nice wait staff. We will definitely return!

This was a wonderful experience and the food was phenomenal. The chicken and dumplings are to die for. Old fashions were spot on. Chicken wings one of a kind and the filet tender as can be. Would recommend to anyone who desires to visit Soco.

Celebrated husband’s birthday. Service was good. Diverse menu options. It was 1/2 off bottles of wine, which was s bonus. Server brought complimentary champagne as well. Kudos!

Was there last year and enjoyed the Jim Beam Single barrel offering and dinner was delicious. Came back a year later and the cheese plate was delicious, the fried chicken was out of this world. I was under the weather and on meds so i couldn't drink but my server made sure to make me a non-alcoholic cocktail so I wouldn't feel left out. It was so delicious I am considering giving up liquor :-).

Hostess was not very good...sat us in bar area. Didn’t care for one of the appetizers and server didn’t seem to care or offer a substitute. Bisque soup was not hot and asked for bread to get with it, was told they would give us some crostini, but then told us that those would take 15 minutes. Don’t know why they would suggest that to start with as it was obvious that I wanted something to go with the bisque...all seemed very disorganized

Ate at the bar. Michael served the best Cosmopolitan martini. He was very friendly and spent quite a bit of time with us. We had the cheese board. Excellent quality cheeses with toast points. Our entrees were very good. We have dined here at least once before in the dining room. We had a really lovely time. We’ll go back very soon.

The ambiance was great the restaurant has a classy look. The wait staff were very hospitable and the service was awesome. The food however for it price was very bad. (My boyfriend and i ate McDonald’s afterwards.)
The apps were good but not anything to rave about. The pork belly had a weird smell and was tough.
My lobster mashed potatoes were salty.
The pork chop was a little too over cooked.
The fried chicken was very good.
But over all for a 120 dollar meal i was very discounted with the quality of the food. They’ve lost my business.

Was a bit disappointed that the salmon entree was unavailable and that only two snapper entries were available. The area surrounding our table also was a bit warm. Our server, Christian, and the entire wait staff we’re phenomenal.

One of my very favorite restaurants! I have never had anything that wasn't delicious. The buttermilk biscuits are a must-have, and the changing dessert menu is always full of unexpected treats.

Went in forbrunch just before noon and we were seated right away. The food was great and our mimosas were tasty. Our server seemed annoyed with us staying after the first hour of being there. Our service slowed down and our drinks were not filled without us having to flag down a server to help us. I understand when restaurants are busy but it just seemed as if our server changed his attitude towards us after 1 hour of being there. Kind of disappointing as the rest of the afternoon was lovely.

This was my second time visiting (last time was over a year ago). I felt like both the service and food quality has gone down. I’ll try it again in hopes it was a fluke, but we were disappointed in the food this time around.

I noted that the occasion was for my anniversary when I made the reservation and no one acknowledged it. Our waitress only checked on us once to ask if we wanted more drinksI have been here several times and have received better service. Not a great anniversary dinner

Came to the restaurant for my birthday and was disappointed in our visit. Having to continuously ask to be serviced when no one else had to. The wrong food was brought out to me and the food was not worth the price. When looking at the menu online, it didn’t say anywhere that only a brunch menu was available so I was bummed I didn’t get what I wanted.

It was our 1st time here and we really enjoyed our dinner. The food was really good, and the service was too. Our server was so nice, interesting and helped us pair wines with our selections. We talked about traveling, and shared photos of Maui - he had been too. The fried green tomatoes we excellent - not too much breading and not greasy. The snapper was fantastic and we'll beck for that. It was a fun dinner with friends, a relaxing atmosphere plus wonderful food and service.
