SOMA Restaurant & Bar
Food was below average and pricey. Zero ambience.
great food, just noisy but fun atmosphere. I wanted to have a nice conversation but had to work at it due to the noise.
Went here before our show at golden Gate Theater. Great variety of good food, decent prices and excellent service. Will definitely be back!!!
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.
Mediocre food & poor service
Family reunion with 17 people
We had a tasty pre-show dinner and drinks here. The food was fresh, delivered quickly, and the service was very excellent! Don't let the dark, bar vibe fool you...
They were able to accommodate our large party to deliver lunch in a timely and well mannered fashion. I appreciated how the service staff was able to handle multiple checks. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
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.
Lamb dishes excellent. Service good and very reasonable price and good location for theater, parking
Loved it! Authentic food. Excellent service.
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
Arugula and beet salad with salmon was excellent
Frequent Soma to lunch with friends. Enjoy pizza and tea regularly. Guests usually sample other menu items and always enjoy

With so many choices in SF, this would not be one of them. THe food was nothing special, the service was not good and overall a little embarassed I chose this to entertain my client.
Service was excellent. Salmon excellent, spaghetti & meatballs average. Tiramisu was the best ever. Very light.
Not many customers, lunch on a Tuesday after a holiday. Overall good experience and good food. Would eat their again and recommend to friends.
Great burgers. The chicken was ok.
This was our first time at SOMA. We came after a performance at the Golden Gate Theater. They were so welcoming and the food was delicious and well priced. We will return!
Watered down drinks. Calimari overcooked and rubbery. After our meal asked to leave our table so another group could have it even though we had a reservation. Will never go back or recommend.
I came to have a pre-concert dinner with a friend. Even though my friend was running late, they treated me wArmly and seated me right away. The food was familiar and fresh. The chicken kebabs were well-seasoned, tender and juicy! Which is often difficult with chicken breast meat. The tab cam to $33 per person and I was happy with the service! A return trip is coming with friends!!!
I have had many good experiences at SOMA. Friday night was not one of them. The TGIF crowd at the bar basically made conditions almost unbearable at the dining tables.
Pizza is just like Italy’s! Loved it! And best tiramisu I’ve ever had!
I genuinely enjoyed the salmon for dinner. However, while other reviews stated the noise was moderate, my dinner companion and I had trouble hearing each other from across the table. The noise level might not prevent me from returning but it will definitely impact the type of outing.
fair and ok
We went to the SOMA after a matinee at the Golden Gate theatre. I wasn’t too impressed with the ambiance as it was just a bunch of wood tables. They weren’t quite open when we arrived so it did take awhile to get drinks as the bar area was open. Once the restaurant was open, everything clicked. The service was great and the food was very good. It’s good to know a place close to theGolden Gate theatre
Soma was just what we were looking for in good food and great service. We had the New York Strip and Braise short ribs. Cooked perfectly and tasted great, Our server Beyza was very friendly and attentive. Highly recommend enjoying a dinner here
Restaurant forgot to check us in so had to send copy of receipt to prove didn’t *no show *. Place was empty because a little early for reservation. They almost forgot to give us napkins and silverware. Food was okay but skimpy on fries. Fries were crispy and hot though. Waitress was nice but took awhile to get even refill on water. So many great places to eat in city. Will not be back here.
Met a friend to catch up for lunch, I ordered the mushroom pizza and she the beet salad and we
shared. Pizza was really good. Salad was pretty good too.
Service was leisurely and that was a plus since we had a lot to discuss.
Good location and neither crowded nor noisy.
Check it out.
I went here for my fiance's birthday with a party of 18. The service was incredible and the food was delicious – highly recommend the wings and pizzas. The staff was so nice and it had a great vibe. So thankful I found this place!
Good place if you want a quick meal. Service was excellent and food was good.
Good food. Was able to be seated as soon as I walked in.
Soup and lamb main course were outstanding and service excellent
It was not very great over all and at the price point it was a bad experience.
Reservation honored with no wait, which was a nice start. At 5pm, service was attentive and brisk. Noise level rose steadily until by 6pm we couldn't hear each other across the table due to voices (there's also music playing). Would be impossible for people with hearing aids. Salmon and short ribs were quite good. We'd return.
Long wait, mediocre food.
To be fair, it was during a major conference in SF and most places were packed
Service was excellent and food was outstanding. Reasonable price. Highly recommend
