The restaurant was not crowded. The food was delicious, love the Spanish menu and particularly loved the pan gorilla. The only small complaint I could make is that the items came out a little too fast. We ended up leaving the salad to the end so that we could eat the hot food first.
Quite a nice local spot with innovative menu. Food was delicious and server was attentive and super friendly! Definitely worth a visit.
Food and service was amazing!! Oysters and tacos were delicious!!
Excellent service and delicious food.
Wonderful celebration dinner ! Food was delicious.
Tasty food, we were a group of 6 and we ordered 10 plates to share. We enjoyed every bite. Cozy environment, they were running short on the wines we wanted which should never happen. Strongly recommend for foodies who enjoy tasting good healthy Spanish food.
Amazing food with excellent recommendations from the knowledgeable and friendly staff.
Went for the first time after numerous positive reviews by friends and coworkers. Didn’t disappoint! Everything we got was awesome. Great job to the Soca Kitchen team :)
Fantastic food and great staff make Soca a repeated go to for us and our friends.
Overall it was good but we’re disappointed to be told that the restaurant closes at 11pm.We had to end a pleasant evening short.
The food was only ok unfortunately. We would not go back.
Food was delicious. Service was a bit slow and at times felt like we were forgotten. Patio is awesome and feel safe Covid protocols great.
Such a great experience! The food was really good and the service was excellent as well, very friendly staff! Had the best mojito I’ve ever had there Would definitely recommend and will definitely be back!
We had a really great evening with delicious food and kind service. I only rated 'good' for service as it was kind when there, but it was quite slow and lacked attention. I imagine they were very busy or understaffed.
The tacos and the tostadas are great! The pina colada too!
Great food and atmosphere. Have the tacos and the tres leches mousse.
The place is amazing, the food presentation is outstanding, I’d suggest to add more options to the items and the taste of the food is delicious!!
the food is absolutely amazing and unique! you can taste the art and effort that was poured into the food. one of the best Ottawa dining experiences!
First dine out in 2 years
A nice neighborhood restaurant. Great spot for a date. Spanish tapas and small plates. Several vegetarian options which was nice and plenty of great land and sea options. Good ambiance and good service. Overall a nice experience and will recommend it for sure
One of the rare occasions where everything we ate was excellent.
Nice patio with screens to shield you from the busy street. Food was delicious. We had a really good evening.
Always an excellent experience! Super friendly and inviting wait staff - thank you :)
Great service and amazing food. Always reliable. Fresh and wonderful flavors.
The food was delicious and they make the perfect summer cocktails!
One of the best restaurants in Ottawa. The Food and service are top notch!
The food was great, it was not very busy at the time we arrived. Our server was very polite, friendly and attentive. The only complaint I have is that it was extremely hot in the restaurant and it was not pleasant, the ac could not be regulated as its an older building. I noticed the upstairs was much cooler, perhaps provide that option for customers instead of leaving them in the dry heat downstairs when they request an indoor table.
The oyster isn’t fresh enough. Overpriced too
The server was really trying to rush us since the beginning
Everything was clearly prepared, food and drinks. Could not order your own cocktail.
The food was exceptional... as always. Very few establishments are this reliable whether in house or take home. Well worth anyone's support.
Unfortunately, it seemed like new wait staff. Not easily adept at managing the hurrying of tables (to meet the restaurant imposed 1.5 hour dining window). She needed training on how to approach a table and interrupt conversation to get her requirements met. The kitchen... the noise of the throwing of dishes carried into the restaurant all eveninglong. Terribly distracting. When we raised it... the explanation was that they had a full house and were busy.
I would return... in hopes the service returns to an adequate level and the kitchen so calms as well.
Not like it was before ! I wont return
Delicious food, friendly service.
Wonderful evening almost perfect except think your washrooms could use some care especially in these times. Also ordered a delicious cocktail took a few sips noticed glass was cracked. Got a new glass but the same cocktail poured into. Should have got a fresh one. Food was amazing and I will be back
I had a wonderful first experience at the soca kitchen. I would definitely be going again.
When we arrived we were instantly sat down. The server was courteous. The food was delicious and very well plated. Though the 3 leches cake doesn’t sound great in the menu, this was by far the best dessert I’ve had in awhile with 3 types of milk, fresh coconut, I will go back just for that.
The only two concerns were the following:
-we chose indoor dining due to the heat wave, and the AC was turned off 30 minutes into our dining experience. This was not pleasant.
-our server came many times up until appetizers were served, then it took some time for her to come back. We left a little later than expected.
Overall a good experience. I will try them again.
Food and wine list were phenomenal; service was great. My one recommendation is better AC, it was quite warm!
The food was interesting and delicious. Our server was fun, knowledgeable and helpful --and he didn't mind us practicing our Spanish. The lovely patio has street noise but there are nice plastic barriers between the tables.
Great evening at Soca as usual. The food is always amazing
Amazing and unique food, great service, and delicious cocktails! Loved it!
