    A real gem. If you’re tired of eating the same thing at almost every restaurant, this is the place. The menu has great choices I haven’t seen elsewhere, and the dishes are great for sharing so you can try more than one.

    I was so excited to go to this restaurant for the first time since it’s a Latino restaurant and I’m latina. Unfortunately it was such a bad experiencia I will never come back or recommend it. The owner “took” our order, one of the waitress brought our appetizer and 40 mnts later still waiting we realized the owner never ordered my food to the kitchen. When he came to our table he was so arrogant and full of himself and said if you want it will take 5 mnts! Like really you will cook an octopus in 5 mnts? No thanks. I ordered the most expensive dish in the menu and he didn’t even care. This person was at the phone all the time clearly not paying attention to customers needs. FYI, I had 8oz of overpriced sangria and wasn’t even great.! 1 appetizer, 1 beer for $80+ terrible service not worth coming back. I should have gone to an authentic Latino/Taco place.

    Went to Soca to celebrate a friend's birthday. We always order the cochinita tacos - they're absolutely delicious. Lots of flavors - certainly does not disappoint and worth the price! The owner is absolutely a sweetheart. He was working alone the night we went and he did amazingly well. We didn't need to wait long for our drinks and food. He was very polite. The bathroom was very clean, the restaurant is very nice as well and very clean. I highly recommend this place. We used to go to the Wellington Soca but unfortunately they are no longer there. I'm hoping they get one in Kanata :)

    Chef's Charcuterie plate : very good, wonderful Manchego 3 Tacos : very nice, a little too much hot sauce (it does not come on the side) Pan : perfectly toasted Hamachi Crudo : dissapointing it tasted too strong (as opposed to subtle and light taste), dry or marinated, not super fresh. Maybe I was expecting sashimi for the taset and that is not how Soca prepare it? 6 very thin slices les than 1/4 inch thick (as two sashimis cut in 6 pcs). Soca ceviche : quite generous quantity, strong lime taste, again fish was too firm. Churros + Nutella : nice smell, too dry, empty inside (air), nothing soft. We'll try different items from the Sea + Land menu next time.

    I went here for my Birthday with my family, and we had a lovely time. The food is exceptional, and the service was great. This restaurant has amazing vegetarian options, which are often hard to find. I recommend the Patatas Bravas and the Ceviche! We received a complimentary dish, and the waiter even took a Polaroid picture of us! I highly recommend this restaurant, and we will definitely be going back!

    First experience, interesting and varied menu. Thankfully we were not in a hurry as the staff was a one man show. Most tapas plates were good with a nice presentation. The octopus was very disappointing. Nice wine list. All in all too expensive for our experience. Will not be a return customer.

    Four of us dined at the Beechwood location last night. It was quiet for a Saturday night. I hope it gets busier because I'll be sad if this location closes. We had the beet salad, fish tacos, beef tacos, watercress Caesar salad and guacamole. The wine list is reasonable. All the food was good, especially the beet salad, which we have every time we go there.

    This place is ok. It's very cute on the inside and the patio is decent. The service is awkward and inexperienced. The waitresses don't seem to know much of anything. The food was good but a little overpriced. The most annoying is the tip option on the machine: the lowest amount you can select is 16% with no option to choose a custom dollar or percentage amount. No one wants to be coerced into tipping a specific amount especially when the service is poor.

    3 people sitting at the table 2 meals appear. Forgot to take the full order. Service was so poor waiting on drinks, food etc, couldn’t even take the order properly. We felt we where at a cafeteria. No music no ambience at all. Save your money! Fast food joints have better service. When I asked to speak to a manger. Oh Sorry manager is sick. How about the owner oh he’s the sick too. That because he is the manager. No leadership in the restaurant just a bunch of kids running around with no direction. Just poor. Once again Ottawa fails in the restaurant world only 3-4 good places to eat. This isn’t one of them.

    Food is very good. Waitress was so nice but often had to apologise for untrained staff, complications with system could not get us the wine bottle we selected even though in stock. OMG. They need to get there act together. I didn’t really want to return here, but my friend wanted to be on a patio. They have a nice one.

    I have been wanting to try this restaurant for a while so that I could try something different. For the most part, the food was delicious... my problem, once again, was with the service. The young lady was very pleasant, but... they don't pour your wine... as well, I ordered an appetizer and and a main course. My husband only ordered a main course. Much to my surprise, I was brought my appetizer and my main course together... Two plates in front of me... I didn't know how to react... I don't know if my face showed it, but... OMG, really!!! I don't know if they were trying to get us out of there fast, but it sure felt like it... and there was no reason to, the restaurant was barely 1/3 full. I expect that kind of thing in certain chain restaurants... in those instances, I only order my appetizer and not my main course until I'm done with the appetizer... I didn't think I'd have to do this here... I'd expect they should no better. Not sure I'll be rushing back there... well, unless I really want a quick dinner.
