The whole staff was welcoming and very accommodating. Amanda and Kimberly made our evening so special. Now let’s get to the real good part. Our server Michael was with out a doubt one of the best ever. Fun and seriously enjoys his job.

Good service, staff was very helpful. Good alternative to the much pricer Elleven.

We had a great experience. We received a free app because there was a game day special posted but we were informed it was only for after the game. But our sever spoke to the manager and came back and offered us a free app and let us know that they would change the wording on the website. Great customer service!

The pizza was great but a bit overcooked...so the crust was hard to eat.

We always have excellent, well presented food. Portions are small, but surprisingly filling. The servers are attentive and happy to help. Best tables are by the windows, as when you're further inside and facing the window it's hard to see your companion. Overall, never disappointed.

Fire alarm was disruptive. Not their fault but made for disruption.
No prompt for tip upon payment with card.
Overall, great food. I will return!

I would recommend Soco for a bite to eat before an event at the Scotiabank Centre. it is very convenient since you can walk indoors from the Delta Hotel to the arena. The only criticism I have is that the menu at Soco is not very elaborate. The tuna poke is my favorite dish!

Nothing special, i had the white fish and portion was fairly small, but taste. Wife had pasta and it was a more reasonable size. Would not rush to go there again.

Loved the mushroom/squash soups. Orchiette Pasta was a bit too salty. Shiraz wine we chose from Australia was excellent! Service was good. 🎅🎄☃️

Sorry, server made us wait way too long for the bill and then payment. I needed to get up and seek her out. It was a bit loud but not overwhelming.

Had a reservation for 11am. Got there on time and was informed that it would be five minutes to get our table ready. 20 minutes later still hadn't heard from the hostess, so went up to inquire upon which she said that the table was ready. Who knows how long the table was ready and would have been nice to know that when it was actually ready, and the onus shouldn't be on me to inquire.

Overall, we were disappointed. This restaurant has zero ambiance: it is the breakfast room for the hotel, and it feels like it. They seated 5 of us in a booth that would have been fine for 4, and in hindsight we should have asked to move to a table which I think would have been more comfortable. The food was ok - some was excellent (the soups and salads); some was fine but nothing special. Service was friendly but a bit on and off - we had to flag down our server repeatedly. I was expecting more and we would definitely look for something else before returning here.

Nice place, good food, pleasant brunch menu, but... can it really be true that « the capuccino machine is broken »? If I had 25 cents every time I have heard that excuse, I would be very rich by now... So, nice food, but no espresso, cortado, capuccino or latte to go with on a Saturday morning... That’s a bit of a disapointment.

We chose this restaurant for breakfast as it was close to our Airbnb for breakfast. It took 45 minutes for the waiter to take our order even though we spoke to the manager and other wait staff who passed us by without making eye contact .

We love SOCO and the food. However, with this recent visit 4 people ordered the mushroom soup and 3 of them ended up getting sick right after.

This restaurant is always a great place to eat at. Even when the menu changes and you can't find your favourite, you'll get a new favourite. The booths are nice and private to sit in. The service is always excellent. I like the fact that it's consistent so you can count on having a good meal.

Food and service great as always. No cutlery provided for the shared plates (Soco Salad Special) and the grilled Avocado was served with the skin on, which made a bit difficult to split between guests!

Es war super Service und auch das Essen war echt klasse. Das einzige 'Negative' war, dass der Kaffee nicht unbedingt empfehlenswert ist und auch der Orangensaft schmeckt eher semi gut...
Aber ich würde auf jeden Fall nochmal dort hingehen!!

Service war immer sehr schleppend. Oft sitzt man lange bis Getränke kommen. Speisen sind eigentlich sehr gut. Buffet wurde immer rasch aufgefüllt. Ohne Reservierung muss man länger auf Tisch warten, obwohl viele Tische frei waren, welche noch nicht abgeräumt waren. Weisses Toastbrot war auf Nachfrage aus?!?

Everything about this place was average, except the prices. Way overpriced for such a run-of-the-mill experience. The rooftop was not open - this was the case for the downstairs space.

Made a reservation, was seated promptly. Chose the street side patio, which was surprisingly not too noisy. Staff were friendly and attentive. Portion sizes were good, food was served hot. Had the meatball appetizer as a main dish was a great choice. Great overall, good for couples, families and groups

Great place to grab dinner and drinks before a concert at Scotiabank Arena. The patio is perfect on a summer night. Within the Delta Hotel.
