This establishment is decorated very nicely with lush green trees actually growing inside this large somewhat eclectic space. The piano music was very pleasant. However, the food left a lot to be desired. We went for Brunch and were extremely disappointed in both the food and service. Although the food arrived quickly, the potatoes were cold, the cheese grits were bland and served lukewarm. My husband ordered an omelet which he says was decent. I ordered the Savannah Benedict and it was so bad that I could not finish it. The English muffins were cold and tasted like they had been toasted 2-3 days prior and the crab cake was tasteless. I had to ask our waiter for butter & jelly for the English muffin. We thought our waiter took a break as we had to wait a considerable time for our check. All in all, a very disappointing dining experience. We will not be returning here.

I was a first time visitor for my 30th birthday weekend. I had the salmon croquette and peach cobbler...it was so good, I brought a croquette back to Charlotte deconstructed. This place is amazing and next time I'm in Savannah, I will be stopping by.

When I mentioned I was vegan my server enthusiastically said she could make a vegan pasta primavera for me (not on the menu). It was incredible! My fiancé kept stealing bites and insisting it was too good to be vegan ;-) [guess I'm not a great vegan chef]. Everyone else enjoyed their meals as well- the crab soup was apparently divine.

My friend and I were hoping to enjoy a nice brunch where we could talk and visit (she was from out of town). What we experienced instead, was being surrounded by a group of about 25 people who had finished eating, left their table and were just standing around OUR table. It was so awkward and bizarre. I felt that the group was supremely inconsiderate. But, additionally, I feel that the staff should have recognized what a precarious position they were putting us in and should've asked the group to move the bar area or outside. The food was average. Alcohol was not served until 12:30, which if I'd known that I would've made my reservations for later than 11:00 am. We got a pot of tea instead which was cold within minutes. This is a cute place with cool vibe, but I wouldn't return here.

We ate here several years ago and loved it, mainly due, at that time, to the ambiance of being in an old service station. Also, loved brunch with eggs benedict. A few years later I had the same thing. Not quite as good, but still good. We were seated quickly and service was good.

 (San Diego)·Dined on August 23, 2015

Though they were quite crowded, the service was good and our waiter was attentive. He seemed a little harried which we certainly understood. Piano music was lovely during brunch--he even played happy birthday to my daughter--such a nice touch and so kind of him. The food was absolutely delicious and we loved the atmosphere. It's wonderful to see how they have repurposed this wonderful old building. Parking was not a problem...even though the restaurant itself does not have its own private lot, free parking is available on the weekends and there is a private lot that one can pay to park next door to the restaurant. Definitely highly recommend.

 (Austin)·Dined on June 28, 2015

We heard rave reviews of this spot for brunch. We booked it thinking that we would have a great Sunday brunch.

The place is HUGE, too big. It felt like we were in a big garage. We sat at an odd table, as all the tables are oddly mismatched etc. However, this was not the ideal seating arrangement for my boyfriend and I as we had to sit across from each other at a too long for two table.

The food was average. Nothing to write home about. The most tragic thing for an out of towner booking a vacation Sunday brunch is realizing that they don't serve alcohol until 12:30, which I am sure is a city ordinance etc.

Place does seem kid friendly and good for large groups but the ambiance is totally lacking and the food is not worth wasting a vacation meal spot on.

We had brunch here. My wife really liked the chorizo bowl. I had the bowl that had maple syrup in it. My grits were flavorless and I didn't taste any maple syrup in it whatsoever. I had to ask for salt and pepper to season it. The location and the decor are really nice and interesting. Service was also good.

Sunday brunch in savannah usually requires about an hour or longer wait if you don't have a reservation. We used open table for soho south. Upon arrival we were ignored by 2 hostesses and another guy who just kept staring and clicking on their computer. I finally interrupted and said we had a reservation, which we arrived for 5 min early. We were told we would be seated in a few minutes. 20 minutes after our reservation time , my husband had to remind the hostess that we had a reservation. She had forgotten about us and seated us. The server was very good though and very polite and fast. The food took forever but was warm and yummy when it arrived. Only go here if you have hours to wait for your table and meal.

Have had lunch at SoHo on several occasions. Sunday seems to be the busiest day, a reservation is essential or expect a very long wait. We had friends visiting so booked on Open Table to assure a table at a specific time. They are no longer open for dinner.
We find the lunch menu varied with good choices of meat, fish, chicken, pork, vegetable dishes and salads. On Sunday, they had additional "brunch" offerings in addition to the regular menu.
Some of the lunches and sides have been a bit too spicy for my liking. I have learned to ask for all sauces and speads on the side for which they have been very accommodating.
The back room of the restaurant has a wonderful high ceiling but felt warm & inviting. The furniture is quite "funky" with mismatched tables & chairs that work well together. Very spacious and comfortable. The front room has the bar and about 6 or 8 high top tables. The front windows are large and stretch across the whole room letting in beautiful sunlight.
The waitstaff is very attentive without being overbearing.
Overall a lovely place for lunch and Sunday brunch.

I went to Soho South for brunch with my husband and another couple while in Savannah for a wedding. The service was inattentive and unfriendly from the moment we walked in the door. The monte cristo that I had was delicious, and the atmosphere was interesting, if a bit pretentious, but the hospitality was definitely lacking.

When calling back to confirm the reservation, the person who answered the phone stated she had not called me, she had no such reservation, and when I told her to the contrary, her reply was "whatever". I relistened to the voicemail, and got the caller's name. Called back and spoke to her. She did have te reservation, and harshly admonished me to be on time, they could not honor late arrivals. Ok then. We arrived early, and we're seated. We all 3 wanted to order the pre-fixe menu, (full table participation required)but asked if the main course for mine could be switched to a non-meat item from the regular menu. The server said he'd check, reluctantly. Nope, and also, prefixe was no longer available. This was at 7:15! Later, we were informed this was their last dinner service, using the space for events. Obviously, based on their attitude, they'd already done so in their minds.

I hadn't been to the Soho Cafe for several years, so didn't know that they'd expanded the eating area. I was glad to see that the food was as great as previously, and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The shrimp and grits were fantastic (on brunch menu)! We came from Beaufort, and will be back!

Fresh local foods prepared with natural seasonings that enhance healthy dishes. Salmon was excellent- the best we've had- definitely fresh! Everything prepared as requested. Special dietary restrictions accommodated. Staff is friendly, knowledgeable about menu and city, and timing was just right. Tomato bisque soup is highly recommended. Piano player by Christmas tree added to the experience. Would highly recommend this restaurant!

Excellent menu with contemporary takes on American comfort food with some surprises thrown in. The former garage/warehouse location looks like a movie set with the unique mis-matched decor. Add in a live piano player who can handle catchy ballads just as well as Chopin. Thursday night Happy Hour extends till closing on bottles of bubbles and wine, so certainly one of the best values in town.

What a great find for us!! Repurposed objects provide tables and décor. We had Brunch and it was excellent, and they had a piano player going who seemed to know how old I .. um I mean the music we like, is. Parking was way easier than most places with a public pay lot adjacent to the building. Just a block off of Bull Street, you won't go wrong.

My girlfriend and I went a bit early (6:00PM), so I can't comment on the ambiance later in the evening. That said, we had an amazing meal - she had the autumn salad, I had French onion soup. Both were great. For dinner she had the bim and bop, I had the hunter's ravioli. Both entrees were excellent, and the service was very good. The piano player adds a great touch for a romantic but casual date. I highly recommend.
