    The food was bland, not good quality. The cocktails were very weak and tasted awful. The cocktails and food were way over priced. We were very disappointed. Not returning there and definitely not recommending to family and friends.
    The Soca Kitchen - BeechwoodResponded on April 28, 2024
    Thank you for sharing your feedback. We're a bit perplexed as we made efforts to ensure your satisfaction throughout your visit by asking about the taste of both cocktails and food. Neither you nor your guest expressed any dissatisfaction, nor did you provide us with an opportunity to address any concerns you may have had. Instead, we received an "anonymous" one-star review, despite having your reservation on record. This seems rather unfair to us. We value all feedback, but we expect it to be constructive and given directly to us so we can make improvements at the moment rather than to an "anonymous" behind a keyboard. We hope you and your loved ones have a great summer ahead!

    We went in for the Tasting Menu experience. Although the food was good, the service was mediocre. There was no walk-through the tasting menu, we weren't given any instructions on what to expect. As a matter of fact, we didn't know when it was over! The sharing plates were nice and balanced, but I personally think the sharing menu should be described as 56$ per couple as opposed to 28$PP (all plates were to be shared between 2 people).
    The Soca Kitchen - BeechwoodResponded on April 15, 2024
    Dear Mrs Stephanie Tavares, Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy the service. We always strive to provide great customer service to all of our guests, even making specialty drinks for your guests last night which were not on our menu, to make you all have a wonderful experience. The menu at Soca is a sharing style menu, however, we do not price our plates or our specials per couple, as we want to be inclusive of all of our guests who come in groups or 3, 5, 7.... depending on the number of guests, the Chef plans the meals accordingly. We thank you for trying the blind tapas menu and hope you and your loved ones have a wonderful spring!

    This was an interesting and successful evening with the blind taster menu with unique plates that were quite delicious and very tasty. 4 courses that we didn't choose, came one at a time and each one was well portioned and well made. The beet salad with feta cheese cream was the surprise of the night. Absolutely delicious! The charcuterie board was a nice starter. The pulled pork tacos were very well done and satisfying. The egg dish (don't remember the name) was really good. 1st time there definitely coming back. You should try it. Blind Taster menu is 28 dollars and a choice on Sunday and Monday's.

    My recent visit was a complete letdown. The ambiance was dreary, the service was indifferent and arrogant. The food was mediocre. It was clear that quality and customer satisfaction were not priorities. Save yourself the disappointment and steer clear of this establishment.

    The service was very pushy. We were rushed to order before our cocktails arrived. When we were eating our appetizers, the mains arrived and we got a nasty glare from the waiter. When I said "we aren't ready for those, we are still eating the salad" he said "well you don't need to have an attitude". That was literally 21 minutes after sitting down at the table. The food was ok but lacked flavour (as in the ones listed on the menu that were supposed to be seasoning our food). The best part of this visit were the friends we bumped into while we were there but I would never recommend it to anyone.

    Went there for their small plates tapas blind tasting assuming it was going to be several small plates of their food instead the menu was bread and paella. We ordered off the main menu instead but again it’s not small plates of items. Food is amazing but disappointed there wasn’t more variety of tapas items. Don’t think we will go back since it’s expensive and not much variety.

    I had high hopes for this restaurant based on the reviews, but I was sorely disappointed. The food seemed reheated rather than freshly prepared. We did not finish the latin grill platter (very poor cut of beef that was served blue, the chicken was undercooked, chorizo sausages were cut in half and dry). Food that is of unimpressive quality. The waiter was a bit arrogant and did not want to accommodate food intolerances. On a positive note , we enjoyed our wine and ambiance. Overrated.

    The food and service were average. The cervice was good, other dishes were meh. Mushroom paella didn’t deserve a $50 price point. Better food and service available in the area if you’re looking for an upscale dinner experience.

    The meal felt very rushed, once the cocktails arrived and looked hastily made and really not worthy of the description or price, both our entre and meals arrived. There was only one server for the entire room, so I suspect that’s why. The best salad was excellent and the fish tacos were good. The steak however was warm at best and very chewy. Just wasn’t a great overall experience, had high expectations from the reviews I had read and was very disappointed overall.
