    Intimate and secluded setting adjacent to a luxury resort. Completely outdoor setting with heaters in winter and misters in summer. Very pricey but high quality preparation of meals. Perfect for a special occasion. Ask for one of the large cozy rounded booths for a really special experience.

    Our stay at La’Horizon hotel was amazing stunning private spa luxury hotel. We are Christmas dinner at SoPa. Kelly was so accommodating to everyone we observed him wheeling outdoor heater to a couple. The food was very James Beard like- or Michelin Star it did not disappoint. Fresh farm to table salad all fresh ingredients- we ordered the bacon wrapped pork shop it was perfectly cooked that. In addition we shared 2 appetizers which were both delish. We ranked it as our favorite place for overall dining. If you like good food with fresh ingredients this is your place. Naples, Florida Christmas guest.

    We were in a booth and the couple next to us FaceTimed friends and family almost the whole time. Their speaker and voices were at full volume. We tried to address ourselves in a polite way to no avail. We asked the waiter to who said he couldn’t until the people went on and one. Some manager came over who tried to engage them but did not address direct. Sorry but it was clear you didn’t care about our evening.

    Extremely overpriced tourist food masquerading as fine dining. For instance, a side order two small pieces of supposed 'warm zucchini bread' (no bread was provided otherwise) that was not warm, tasted like packaged bread, and cost $14. A duck leg confit that was more like a piece of fried rubber. An oversalted piece of fish (trout?) in a cold sauce that ran $46. The place is absolutely beautiful and the valet parking guy is great, but would never return or send others there.

    My goodness was Thanksgiving dinner at SO.PA underwhelming to say the least. We were looking for a quiet evening for two by the fire and while this place was most definitely quiet, the unprepared energy presented by staff lingered with every course. Starting with both exotic cornbreads offered, the ration portions were unexpected. Even more of a surprise for a single square to be both burnt and raw and if I’m paying truffle prices I would like to taste the truffle? Wild. Hoping that the main turkey entree would save the evening was blind faith, for when it arrived the turkey seemed to be carved hours prior, reminiscent of what comes out of the can. I truly cannot make this up. The stuffing was merely just pieces of bread and overall was decided would be more enjoyable for the dog when we got home. For nearly 400 quid, thankful to know now not to come here for a holiday themed evening.

    I have been here before and food an ambience was always good. We went on a Sunday recent;y and were the only table in the whole restaurant. As 3 women out to have a night out we just had a drink & left. The menu prices were outrageous, and the selection was not great. We are all about spending $$ for a fab dinner and often do it while in PS but this didn't feel worth it to us. I hope they revamp what they're doing because it is a lovely space.

    We made this reservation when we were being extroverts but by the time it we were going to cancel to stay in. I am so glad we put a credit card down to reserve our spot because it meant we suited up and showed up. This meal was pretty close to the best meal I've ever had in any country. Brian our water was fabulous and he lead our meal in an attentive but not hovering manner. The chopped salad with snap peas was a huge surprise in that I didn't expect much and it was great. The lettuce was chilled perfectly and complemented by a lemon yogurt dressing. I had the short rib and while it was good the bacon wrapped pork loin was the bomb. We added zucchini bread after the fact and it was just the final touch to an amazing meal. The ambience is amazing and my wife and I will be back.

    A beautiful setting outdoors however lighting is challenging and it would be nice to have some sort of background music. The water fountain does give an auditory experience but a little more would be welcome. Menu is inventive and interesting but execution is not quite there. Duck confit was very dry, zucchini bread is totally overpriced at $14 for 2 slices and no condiment except for butter.gnocchi was good but needed more seasoning (salt anyone?) Main courses were both overcooked and dry. Is it the desert setting that takes out all the moisture? It has wonderful potential but needs a lot of finessing in the kitchen. The staff was attentive and friendly and the valet was amazingly gracious.

    The atmosphere and service are top notch. The vegan starter and main were quite good. The only issue was there needs to be more vegan options on the menu, or at least more items that can be altered to be vegan. Plus, vegans are tired of sorbet for dessert!! It's very easy to make an indulgent vegan dessert that even non-vegans will choose.

    arrived in town midday and made a reservation dinner that evening; after going for a strenuous hike we called with intention of cancelling only to realize they would charge $40 each. so we went and very glad - lovely outdoor dining terrace with a roomy booth; friendly and efficient wait staff, knowledgeable about the menu and wine. shared butter lettuce salad with shaved fennel - very fresh and with a light vinaigrette. entree of wild trout with fresh peas and baby fingerling potatoes was perfectly cooked and superb. pork loin wrapped in bacon with corn, chick peas, fave also very good. Nice chenin blanc to accompany the meal, and a lovely warm raspberry clafoutis with a side of lightly whipped cream. overall great meal!! only suggestion is to change out the lighting over the booths - very bulky and blocks interaction with the waiter.

    The food was definitely frozen. We had to send back undercooked fish. The service was very good and we received drinks due to the wait times. The place is very pretty and romantic but the food was nothing special. You’re Paying for ambiance, not the food here. We had almond crusted chicken, ocean trough, gazpacho and little gem salad. The salad was very good. The rest was average at best.

    The food was creative and very flavorful. Lovely setting. All around good experience with one exception, the lighting. We got out our phone lights every once in while to be able to see what we were eating, literally that dark at the table. The food was beautifully presented, but the lack of light made it impossible to appreciate.
