Not impressed and unfortunately would not return. The service was fine but the food looked better than it tasted.

Nice restaurant, with great service.
Had the seafood linguine and it was wonderful!
The decor is a-little outdated, but overall a great spot.
Will definitely go again.

I'm rating three stars. It was Valentine's day + Covid + Outdoor Dining + Raining so I know its not completely their fault. We got there on time for our reservation, they only had 3 booths with heaters. The rest were bar table style. I get it, very limited seating available. That was ok, but then we sit down and waiter lets us know that all the seafood, steak (basically all the good stuff) was sold out. Only thing left was burgers and pizza. So we ended up walking next door to the sushi place where they had pretty much all menu items available.

Conveniently located near Moscone Center (1.5 blocks away) which is good. They seated us immediately and took our order. The waiter was great letting us know that there was a group of 20 and we should get our order before them. The food was promptly delivered but it wasn't very good. Little to no flavor and my wrap had 2 falafels and LOTS of filler with lettuce. The fries were cold and soggy. I was disappointed. I tired a slice of pizza my friend ordered and it was the same, slightly warm and no flavor. Would not entertain going back.

Celebrated birthday with friend. We had eaten here before. Both ordered iced tea and mushroom pizza.

Good service, but kitchen a bit short-staffed so the pizza was considerably delayed.

It was tasty but so filling we couldn't have birthday dessert!

Will be back.

The clams were not fresh, they were out of rice , the did not serve me the salad I asked for instead of the rice and the drink was too strong to drink I had to water it down. Maybe it was just an off night for them.

Despite having a reservation at 12:30 and being seated right away we had to wait an hour for food. And they tried to move us to another table before we were served to accommodate a larger group who came in. We refused to move. Pretty lousy experience, will not go back.

My dining companion and I ordered the Mediterranean appetizer tray to share. As our entree, we each ordered the beef short ribs. The food was delicious and the service was superb. SOMA Restaurant & Bar is a great place to consider dining before or after going to one of the nearby theatres or movie multiplexes.

Extremely rude. Acted annoyed that I had a reservation for 10. Said they have to pay open table a fee per person in the reservation so kept telling me we had to order food. After we ordered but before we even finished they tried to get us to leave.

The food was subpar at best.

The actual server was great and I think a bit embarrassed about everything.

Not a good experience

Celebrating delayed birthday

We both had mushroom pizzas and iced tea

Quite tasty but too filling to allow for dessert

In past birthday celebrations have had molten chocolate cake

Yum
