    We were looking for a place to meet a travelling friend for dinner and conversation. Soco turned out to be a great choice, easy to get to from Union Station with great food at a range of prices. Unfortunately, the day we chose had both a baseball game and hockey game nearby so noise levels were a bit elevated, although conversation was still very easy.

    The food was decent but nothing spectacular. We ordered braised short rib risotto but the risotto was pretty flavourless and the short ribs weren’t super tender. The Canadiana pizza was tasty for the price. Our dinner took quite a while to be served and we didn’t see our server from the time it was delivered until we were ready for the bill. I would give the restaurant another shot but I wasn’t blown away.

    Wow!! What an experience on Saturday night. Our server, Zoey, was so attentive, fun and had a great personality. She made my mom (it was her birthday) feel so special. We loved the prosciutto pizza & salad and our drinks. To top it off, the atmosphere was so fun! We loved our window table and could look at the CN Tower. Next time we are in Toronto, we will go back to Soco.

    The service was mediocre at best. Our server knew we had to leave in time for the game and we still have to wave him down in order to get out on time. We barely made it. The food was also bland. I've made coq au vin and I've had it in many restaurants. This was was completely tasteless. There was no sauce and the chicken tasted boiled.

    Service and food are very good. Overpriced, considering there are same or better quality restaurants near by. Very convenient location however if attending an event at the Scotiabank arena in the winter, since there is an indoor pathway from the hotel mezzanine level to the venue with parking underground

    Very little attention was given to our table. Our food order took over an hour to arrive. We were disappointed with all three dishes too. Yes, the place was busy due to a concert at Scotiabank Arena, but this spot is there to support events, so it isn't an excuse. I won't be returning.

    We had the pepperoni pizza and Mac and cheese. These items were fine, we finished both, however better can be found at other Toronto spots. We ordered beers and the eclipse cocktail. These were served quickly and the cocktail was pricey but tasty. The location is great for before a concert or live sports game. It was easy to get a table. Service was fast.

    A great place to meet up in the south core for a business lunch because it’s not busy and you have good conversations. I ordered a hot dish for lunch and felt the temperature could be better. I ordered a curry and remembered thinking it was lukewarm at best.

    Had the Brunch Burger which was quite tasty and filling. Our waiter was friendly but not very attentive. It took quite a while to get his attention and we felt left on our own. The space is not bad for a hotel restaurant. Some items are overpriced (e.g. $10 for orange juice?), but overall about what you'd pay anywhere in downtown Toronto.
