Though the tent was not ready for our reservation, the hostess/wait staff did her best to get it warm for us in -35 weather. She was attentive and patient and a great asset to the restaurant. The quality of the food was good and the pisco sour was incredible. Had I not been driving I would have had 3!

Food and service was great! One thing I would recommend is to add music to the tent if possible...it was a tad awkward sitting with 3 other couples in silence / having to talk quietly, and would add nicely to the overall great ambience!

I visited this amazing restaurant today and everything was delicious. Pork tacos and piña colada were my favorites. I couldn’t even feel cold.

I use to love going to soca for an intimate experience, the new location doesn’t deliver the same ambiance. I know the industry is struggling with staffing but the service staff had zero knowledge of the menu.

A very interesting menu with unusual items - Superbly executed. Makes me want to return to try other items. The restaurant has high ceilings and is very well ventilated so we felt comfortable and safe.
The cocktails are also a treat and worth sampling. I rarely, if ever, have cocktails when I dine out in Ottawa but here I make an exception.
Come. Try different things and you will not be disappointed. A good idea is to come with a party of 4 so that you can order different dishes and sample.

My husband and I reserved, for the first time, at Soca on New Year’s Eve. OMG the food was exceptional…the oysters were fresh, the beet salad is to die for and the octopus delicious! We will highly recommend to all our friends…the service is also fantastic🙌

Hello, Soca Kitchen Beechwood was an incredible experience. We had the sourdough bread, guacamole, cauliflower tacos, pulled pork tacos, and nutella churros. To drink we had the old fashioned and the tamarind mojito. All of it was fantastic. We also requested to shift our reservation time and the staff were super friendly and accommodating. We highly recommend Soca Kitchen and can't wait to visit again!

My family and I went to Soca Kitchen mainly because we wanted to try their ceviche. We were a bit disappointed because it seemed like cod was not the right fish to use for this dish as it was a bit flaky and not chewy enough for authentic ceviche.

Also, we did not enjoy using QR code menus. A restaurant of this level should have high-end menu sleeves that they can wipe down after use. QR codes are not an acceptable substitute for real menus.

Other than that, the atmosphere was nice and I enjoyed the lamps on the tables.

This new addition to New Edinburgh is much appreciated. The food is creative and served with a flare of colour and well arranged servings. The wine list is rock solid (with good offerings, yet avoiding pretence). The service is prompt and friendly. Also check out the adjacent food store, as it has lots of unique take-out and serving ideas.

Had a lovely time at Soca Beechwood. Understanding how hard it is to staff these days, we took a deep breath on the service which was friendly but tentative and a bit slow. Food was fabulous. Wine choices excellent. We'll be back.

What a great space with fantastic food and drinks! We took our server’s recommendations for everything we ate, and it was all wonderful! Our group had beet salad, yam frites, guacamole with mixed drinks, and for dinner fish tacos and chicken empanadas…plus naturally dessert was tres leches cake and dulce du leche mousse. Everything was delicious, and we would highly recommend!

Service was very slow.
It was very disappointing to not have any bottles of Procecco in stock. The Cava Brut was a 4/10.
It was my second time and I had really enjoyed the tacos the first time but they were just fair tonight.

I am an avid supporter of local restaurants and dine out 1-2 per week. The food is wonderful however the wine list by the glass would be the only thing to deter me from coming back on a regular basis. I do not feel that the pairings are well suited to the items on the menu. I would like to see a California or Oregon Pinot Noir and Spanish Garnacha on the "by the glass" menu.

We were very happy with our overall experience. The food was exceptional and the servers were very attentive but seemed inexperienced. For example, they didn’t clear the table effectively and did not provide serving utensils for sharing plates. We had an 8:30 reservation last Friday, it was the only one that was available. Unfortunately, the kitchen closed at 10:00 and the bar at 11:00 meaning we were rushed making our orders. This was fine with us except, we were asked to leave shortly after 11:00. Given we had spent a considerable amount for our dinner and were looking for a relaxing evening, we felt we were pushed out prematurely which took away from the enjoyment of our meal.

I was hoping to have a nice night here given that the meals I’ve had in their west end location have been great. Unfortunately the food was under seasoned and lacklustre. Worse than that, the service was incredibly slow and when we wanted to order another course they seemed genuinely surprised. The service after that was rushed and they brought out dessert while we still had our mains on the table and told us it was last call. Not very pleasant overall.

I’ll begin by highlighting the great service we received at Soca. The waitresses were very helpful and service was super fast.

The food, although nicely presented, was just OK. Nothing to write home about and especially given the very high prices charged for simple dishes and regular drinks. Never had I paid 15$ Before for a small glass of wine or 12$ for a pina colada that seemed prepared from the frozen stuff sold at supermarkets. Not a good value for money, so won’t be returning.

We enjoyed our dinner very much. The young fellow serving us was obviously very new to serving as he brought us our next course before clearing the table of the previous one…and still wanted to put the new dishes on the table where there was no room.

Decent service and nice ambiance but the food was mediocre and extremely overpriced. I would not go back. If you’re looking for good small plates the food is much better at Aroma Meze or Play and value is way better. I was very disappointed.
