I find the flavours are too often not quite right. The tuna poke needed some lime juice or something. Maybe there were too many things in it. Did it really need avocado? The seafood pizza was greasy. The Caesar salad had too much dressing.

The service was very pleasant and accommodating. The mushroom soup is the best I’ve ever enjoyed, and the bread board was very tasty. Decaf coffee was delicious. We look forward to returning to Soco.

Wonderful friendly service! Food came very quickly and was hot and delicious. The only thing I would change is the size of the appetizers they were very very small portions.

My friend and I selected SoCo for it's proximity to the ACC prior to a concert earlier this week. The atmosphere was buzzing, but a bit too loud thanks to everyone there for after-work drinks. The service was fine to start, but then our server forgot about us and was not attentive. We waited a long time for someone to come by to ask for a dessert menu until my friend got tired of waiting and got up to get a dessert menu for us herself. Overall the food was just okay... my friend's burger was falling apart and the bun did not look fresh. With the lack of vegetarian options on the menu I selected a soup and salad and it wasn't the greatest, but still quite pricey. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to friends and family unless they were only going for drinks.

The atmosphere was unexpected when I walked in....Very loud, crowded,echo-y, and people standing everywhere. It felt more like a family restaurant ambiance than an establishment with very high priced food. That aside, our server Alex was prompt, friendly and helpful. The burgers were excellent, and the fries delicious.

I experienced yet another culinary delight from Soco's kitchen. It was encouraging to choose from an updated menu that hasen't deviated dramatically with what has worked well in the past. I especially want to acknowledge the superior service from our server Nathan. I don't often write a review for anything but this restaurant is perfect for either pleasure or business purposes.

Had a nice dinner with my daughter on our way to the Aquarium which is right next door. Ambience is causal and fun. Food was very good, the award winning Mac n cheese lived up to its name. Service was very good as well

Madison was our server, she's fantastic. Always checked up on us, she had knowledge of the menu. Got to meet the chef that night. I believe his name was Cornel, lead his team, and handled the rush smoothly. My friends and I were a little complicated with mods to our meals and it went without a hitch. Even got a dessert platter for my friends birthday. Will definitely go back.

It was a very relaxed atmosphere but very loud! Service was great ! My table was so close to the other customers that I felt I was part of their dinner party and could here everything they were saying! Quite expensive but for Toronto standards and location probably the norm! I d definitely recommend it to others

My family went for dinner before the leaf game. It was a great atmosphere fully of leaf fans having a more sit down dinner and beer/cocktail versus a loud sports bar. Reservations would be a must on a game night as it was packed but not rowdy. Food came out quickly and tasted amazing, same with dessert!

There appears to have been a mix up with our order and the appetizers took longer than usual. The server apologized and took them off our bill. The manager later approached our table to introduce himself and apologize for the late appetizers. Manager was super friendly and we had a nice conversation. We appreciated the gesture. The service thereafter was great. All the staff are friendly and accommodating. Our food was great too. We had the burger, prawn tagliatelle, agnolotti and mac n cheese. The appetizers were the bread with maple butter (so yummy!) and the not fried calamari. Delicious! This was our second time for 3 of 4 of us and the 4th person has been here a few times to take out business clients. Would recommend this place for family and business.

My fiancé and I were celebrating an early Valentine’s Day, and SOCO was introducing a special Valentine’s dinner for two. The menu was phenomenal. The beef Wellington was cooked to perfection and we even got to compliment the kind chef who was interested in our thoughts on the food. All 3 courses were plated artistically and thoughtfully; we were very impressed! Our waiter (Carney B) was attentive and efficient, we were even greeted by the manager. SOCO definitely succeeded our expectations and we are excited to return! Thank you for a great dinner :)

We enjoyed the meal and the service was terrific. There was very few people so the atmosphere was a bit to quiet --- We assume this was because it was a Sunday night. Food was great --- Try it on a different night.
