I’ve restaurant if you can seat down on the terrasse... Inside it is quite loud.
Very nice service.
I tried for the first time of my life a Mac’n cheese but this was too heavy.
Couldn’t finish my meal.
The pizza looked very delicious, next time I’ll try this.
Very good children’s menu.

Had an excellent roasted eggplant appetizer. Our mains were shrimp tagliatelle and a salad, both very good. Service was friendly and attentive. Seating is comfortable and reasonably spacious.

A nice selection of food but I was disappointed with my order. The mushroom soup wasn't hot and very salty. Grilled cheese sandwich was ok - very basic.

It’s about the third or fourth time I have been to Soca. Ordered the tuna poke it was so salty I had to exchange it for the grain salad. The waitress did mention that they had recently change the ingredients

We are at Soco prior to a concert at Scotia Arena June 25. The service and food are good, the issue we had was that we were seated by a large window in the corner with the afternoon sun. It was very hot and uncomfortable even with the shade down. When your paying a decent sum for dinner, the last thing you want is to have it ruined by running for the exit to cool down. That becomes the ONLY thing you remember about the experience.

Went here for a business lunch. I chose the place because of its location relative to the person I was meeting. It was pretty quiet. The food and service was ok. There was nothing particularly bad, but nothing stood out enough to make we want to go back unless I needed to have another meeting in a similar location.

Soco location is great, kitchen is good, quality is OK! Actually we wanted to reserve a table on the roof then it turned out no reservation was possible for the Soco roof through website. There is nothing written on the website about it. That was the only disappointment.

Food was underwhelming for the price they charge. I have never gone to a place where the tuna poke didn't come with rice (there was an additonal cost to add it on the side; also the dish came out quite watery as well). For the price it charged - portion was small compared to other DT restaurants that comes with rice and theirs is an entree. Service was okay? We were seated quickly and received our water; server never came back to check up on us until she came back to clear the plates and give us our bill. The noise level was high; couldn't carry a conversation without yelling almost. Probably wouldn't come back.

Late afternoon lunch. Happy hour limited drink and food specials. Fries are coated with parmesan cheese so ask for plain if you are not a fan. Burgers were outstanding . Would go back.

Lovely experience. Fresh, creative food. Our mushroom soup had a mushroom design on the top. Don't know how they did it. One of the best desserts of all time:chocolate and caramel presented in multiple forms. This out of towner is sorry it isn't in my neighborhood.

The food was wonderful but the service was a bit unattentive. The server also told me that the mac and cheese had a subtle blue cheese flavour but that was definitely not the case, the blue cheese was way too strong.

The food was delicious and the service was great. Would definitely go there again. The only downside is how much sound carries, so when the restaurant has a lot of patrons it can become noisy.

Very tasty food at a good value. The entire table had different meals, compliments all around.

Cocktails are a bit pricey, but other drinks are a good value.

Really enjoyed the presentation of the food whether it was on a standard plate, or in a jar-like container that housed the cheesecake.

Definitely will be back!

Food is very good but a little noisy. Service started off great but once food was ordered it went down hill quickly. My friend ordered another beer and never got it. We asked for the bill and were told that dessert was being made (it was my birthday) and then was asked if they should cancel it. Too little too late.

Went to Soco Kitchen for a quick dinner before a Raptors game. The service was perfect, the food is great (BIG portions so keep that in mind) and overall the space and atmosphere are lovely. This is a nice place with a serious chef and people who obviously care. Great job!!
