The food was great. We ordered the Steak Frites, Caesar ish salad and the chocolate torte. The waitress was friendly and helpful. It was a great dining experience and we’ll be going back soon.

We waited an hour for our food and watched another table come in after us, be serve and eat before we received our food. Our server also forgot our appetizer.

I have never encountered such a terrible service in my whole life. Our server (which I didn't get the name of) was a short woman possibly of Latin descent. My friend and I had ordered our own virgin berry drink but when I tasted mine it was very strong and tasted like Absolut. My friend told me to try hers because hers was sweet and not strong at all since we both ordered the same virgin drinks. I kindly asked our waiter if she could see if our bartender made my drink virgin and she completely freaks out. She insisted that they had been "working in the industry for over 15 years" and wouldn't make a mistake like that. After going off I interrupted by saying it was no problem and that I might've been wrong (because she was very passive aggressive and making me uncomfortable). She then said "if you want I can get another one to give you a piece of mind" very sarcastically. I literally could not believe how rude this waiter was and unprofessional... I find it extremely unfortunate that SOCO does not train their staff on the importance of respecting their consumer's dietary restrictions and not making someone feel uncomfortable by feeling as though something wasn't right with their food. After I finish paying the waiter says "are you mocking me? (me and my friend were laughing amongst eachother, which is completely fine.. are we not allowed to talk to eachother?). She proceeds to say "im 34 years old I'm not dumb! I will call my manager on you (i was so confused)". I continued to ignore her because she was making my friend and I so uncomfortable we just wanted to leave. She continues saying " you dont know me" and a bunch of more ramble. I literally cannot believe how unprofessional this lady was and SOCO allows her to speak to customers like that. I will definitely not be coming back ever again and will make sure my friends and family know of my experience so they can avoid such a terrible experience. She completely ruined my night and left us so disappointed. SO SAD.

Went for a birthday brunch, the pastrami Benny and the Peameal Benny were fantastic. Good service, great location, the mimosas were a little expensive but that was the only downside. Make a reservation

Reserved a patio table, but none available at arrival (nice weather and the patio was full) so we were forced to eat indoors, despite the patio reservation. Food was excellent; wait staff was attentive; wine was way overpriced.

Our waiter Eric was outstanding. Food was good. Website very misleading. Didn't say that the rooftop is only open on weekends or that the 4th floor patio was not open. None the less, we enjoyed our visit.

NOBODY makes a burger like SoCo - probably one of the best in city. Service is usually really good, and the food quality is high!

Food and drinks were delicious. Waiter did his job very well and timely only that he was not very friendly. He came across a bit terse and serious. Will definitely return and hope that if we have the same waiter, we catch him on a better day.

We had a great experience at first, then a family with kids came in and we’re running around and screaming uncontrollably. Our waiter was good until we realized our bill was wrong. We had let one of the staff members know that we were charged for a beer we never received and the pizzas were 1$ more on our bill than the menu (a dollar adds up in Toronto!) we let our waiter know very politely.. he did not apologize .. which is fine whatever, but then when he came to us with the debit machine he did not acknowledge us.. I asked how to go to the tip option for percent- he took the machine, gave it back to me- did not acknowledge once I said thank you (was going to give 20%.. but only did 15%) the way his attitude was once we had the bill corrected was a complete change. Very rude.. did not even say thank you have a good day. Took the machine and left after we said thanks! I literally was sooo disappointed with this overall attitude after he screwed up.

Barely any options on the menu. The food was nothing special. The only thing that seems nice is the roof top, however I didn’t even go there because it’s closed during covid. So without the roof top view there’s really nothing good about this restaurant.

The patio is a nice spot on Bremner between ScotiaBank Arena and the Rogers Centre. Food and drinks were good as well and appreciate their attention to detail around COVID contact tracing. They were out of the Mill St. draft and the bartender seemed a little distracted. Would like to come back and try out the roof top patio.
