Amazing!! So grateful of their quick reopening! We really appreciate it and feel very lucky to have you guys in our neighborhood! Delicious food and cocktails as always!! We will be back soon!
Great dinner with my partner! Their patio gets really busy so make sure to make a reservation in advance! Service was friendly and not overly done, food was great as well a a good wine selection. Highly recommend!
I’ve been coming to this restaurant since they opened and it has been consistently yummy. Tacos are to die for and do yourself a favour and order two orders of churros and try their old fashioned!
Thumbs up The Soca! Great job bouncing back from these lockdowns. Thank you for serving us in Hintonburg
LOVE their new patio! Food is always on point. We had ceviche, tacos and crispy calamari. Everything was excellent, waitress was lovely.
Thank you Soca for a beautiful early meal! After what restaurants have been through we are happy to support, specially when it’s this good! See you soon :)
Perhaps they need time to get up and going after the lockdown. They were prioritizing take out orders, so we sat for close to 1.5 hours with only one small appetizer. After our drinks were finished, we sat for a long time without a server coming to ask if we might like a drink while we were waiting. The food seemed carb-y and plain. However, we loved the tacos!
the service was super super slow, it took an hr to get food in out table.
deliverys are way faster then going to the patio.
Food is delicious, Must try PISCO SOUR.
Another fantastic meal at Soca kitchen! I love how they have expanded and improved their patio. Food is delicious as always!
We appreciate and support the local restaurant and we know that this pandemic has been tough on all our industry.
Server seem overwhelmed
We were seated at a corner table in a driveway and we were often forgotten
We waited 45 min for appetizers
We had to ask for water
Refill on drinks was never offered
Menu was never explained
It was windy… when the server delivered the appetizers, chips flew off and where never replaced
Dessert menu was never offered
Check was presented promptly
We were celebrating my son’s bday and was noted on the reservation-this was never acknowledged
The food was delicious, but understanding the concept would have helped us make better and perhaps order more items
We had asked for more shade as two of us were pregnant but they were unable to accommodate. It was a LONG wait for food, but delicious. Unfortunately because of the delay we couldn't sit to digest much as they needed to turn over the table. Overall a lovely meal in a decent environment.
One note: two pregnant women ordering non-alcoholic Caesars still charged full price for the drink, despite no liquor. This should be remedied, it doesn't cost 13 dollars to make clamato juice and ice.
Just went for a drink. Had a mojito that was 90% ice and cost me $16. Tasted great but that's because it was super sweet and perhaps they forgot to add any alcohol... also it took them like 20 mins to make it.
Their ceviche was the best Ive had outside of Spain.The mohitos and Old fahion drinks were also very good.
So so impressed with this Spanish tapas joint!!! The cocktails were especially impressive. Our old fashioned came out Smokey with dry ice and had burnt cedar chips to add to the aroma!!! Incredible!!!!
We decided to go here on a whim and it was absolutely fantastic! The service was excellent and the patio was set up in a way that made us feel safe :)
So good! I can’t wait to go back and enjoy the tasty food and drink!
Food was fantastic, dining outside was great even with a light rain for part of it. Can’t wait to go back!
The food is amazing. The price is fair. The staff are great. What more could you want?
Soca Kitchen was the first restaurant we picked once we were allowed to go out and eat! We love the food there. They now have a bigger patio which is nice. As always, we find it hard to decide what to choose from the menu as everything looks delicious. We ordered a dozen of oysters, along with a whole fried fish...which we always do by the way :-), and tried the octopus salpicon. I'm usually not a dessert person but I when it comes to churros...I can't resist 🙈 Definitely recommend this place! 👌
Excellent and uniquely flavourful food and fantastic service!
Nothing bad to say. Everything was great.
We went on the second night of the Ontario reopening, maybe it is better in normal times.* It was our first time at Soca, 4 adults on the patio. There was no music, no decorations, and very small table with uncomfortable chairs. It took 50m to get our food. The food was good but the service was inexperienced and very awkward. The sever did not know the menu nor the drinks well. We ordered appetizers and mains - and we mentioned while ordering which one as an appetizers and all - weirdly all food came at once… the table was full! I was served the cheese plate for 2 in front of me, without a serving plate. The $34 cheese and charcuterie only had one type of cheese. I wish the server explained that all food comes in one go. Also my friend ordered 3 tacos, and asked to get 3 different kinds. Server agreed and took the order. Then she got served 3 tacos of the same kind. Server then said the chef cannot do that and she had placed an order for 3 plates instead, for a total of 9 tacos 😬. We cancelled the extra order but that was unprofessional. For the same price, there are many better spots in Ottawa.
Great for a simple night out, understandable 90 min time limit but would be better if they could push it to two hours to avoid feeling so rushed.
Amazing food and best margaritas in the city! Delicious!
Tout à fait parfait ! Merci de votre prompte réouverture.
The food was good but the prices are abit to over priced. The drinks were good but the mojito was too sweet but overall it was good.
Nice place; good food. Few aspects could be improved: dish presentation, service. Overall good experience.
Some of the best tapas and tacos we’ve had! Highly recommend this gem!
Delicious will be back
We sat outside and the heaters they had worked well. Small patio. But great food and service! The fusion mojito was amazing!
Reservation on the patio for 7 pm. Was told to leave by 90 mins max seating (reasonable due to covid). However, the issue was such poor service. Didn’t finish and leave until 935pm.
Patio was supposed to be heated, however, the heater did not stay on for a majority of our stay.
Service was polite but incredibly SLOW. Asked for another drink as our appetizer got dropped off. Did not come until dinner was finished (I am not even exaggerating this). Food was cold as if it had been waiting to get brought to our table for awhile. Expected much more than this. I would not recommend an I would not go back.
The food here is so well executed. The staff is friendly and the vibe inside is very nice.
The food here is delicious, the staff are lovely, and the ambience is comfortable! Would recommend to anyone!
I was not impressed with the food , we ordered yuca, octopus, tacos, nachos with guacamole. The octopus was distasteful, tacos were cold, guacomole was really good and the yuca was different. Even though we sent back the octopus we still got charged for it.
Service and ambiance was really good .
Definitely i wont comeback . Sad because many people recommend it this place.
Great experience! Food was delicious, safety measures were in place, service was great. Would recommend.
The food & drinks were delicious and the service was great . I will definitely be going back very soon !
Food was great , service was great ! Love this place !
Brunch was fantastic. The whole experience very positive. Highly recommend!
I’ve had ceviche before but this was just horrible. Whether you order the shrimp ceviche or shrimp tostada you’re getting the same thing. Only difference is that one sits one one tiny tortilla round that makes it unbelievably difficult to eat. We left the food pretty much as is, paid hundreds, and went to another restaurant to eat real food.
The ambiance and food is always so amazing, if you love tapas this is the place to go. The portions are perfect to share for two.
