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!!

I ordered a veggie burger which was absolutely tasteless. It was so unseasoned I did not even have salt, forget about other seasonings! It was also very crumbly and had to be eaten with a fork and knife. I would not order that meal again. the fries compensated for an otherwise worthless meal.

The restaurant was fine however I thought I would mention a very potent fish smell across the entire room. Now, don't get me wrong, I like fish, and I actually had some for dinner, however it's not a pleasant way to walk into the room. So maybe some ventilation issue?

The food was dry, and for the price I paid, I expected much more.....I wasn't able to really request much from the waiter, as he was absent for most of the time. Never was asked how everything was by him, nor was my wife or I brought any water....nor asked if we wanted any. By the time he presented himself to ask if we were done, the meal was gone, and when I stated that the meal was dry as a bone, I did get an "I'm sorry"..........extremely disappointed by the lack of service, and the meal, but I will admit, the deserts are awesome. I had put in the reservations that it was my wife's birthday......never mentioned. Overall, for a 186.00 bill, I wont do it again.
