Good food but . . .

We enjoyed the food but the service left us wondering. Although the restaurant was far from busy, we waited far too long to be approached by the wait staff. Once we placed our drink order, we waited again for a lengthy period and were finally told that they were out of that particular beer... read more

Huge difference between this visit and a visit a couple of years ago. The manager was pleasant, seated us at an outdoor table, the drinks and food were absolutely delicious and the waitress was attentive and polite. I was having car trouble and was waiting on a tow truck and the other businesses had closed and I was extremely thirsty... More

My partner and I decided to give Soho another chance after a few mediocre meals there. It had been several months since we had eaten there and we were hoping for an improvement in Service and quality. Unfortunately we weren't able to try any food as we were ignored for 15 minutes. We were seated promptly, in the center of... More

Second time at this restaurant. . . not crowded. . .later in evening. Waiter "pushed" the entrees he preferred. I asked about the Chicken Cacciatore, and he said "not his favorite"-- but did not give specifics. I ordered it anyways. . . bad choice. Chicken Cacciatore-- in Italy or anywhere else-- is NOT a separated (and dried out) grilled hunk... More

What a complete waste of time! We went there Saturday evening. The manager was offended we did not have a reservation and sat us in an awkwardly positioned table for 2. I asked if we could move to a vacant table for 2 next to the window and was told it was reserved, although during our torturous 2+ hour dinner... More

Though the prices are a bit steep, the food and service are good. Not a place I'd visit often, but it's nice for a change from the routine chain italian restaurants in the area.

The food here is always consistently good. I have never been to SOHO's where anyone at my table complained about their dinner. It's a great place for lunch as well. The Chicken Fratata is excellent and a lot of food. For Dinner any pasta is good. But my favorite part is the Bread Pudding...outstanding!

A little inconsistent. My first course was disappointing, but I ordered the beef carpaccio next and it was very good. My dinner of cheese ravioli was just ok though. I sat at the bar, and the bartender ignored my date and I for the most part. Considering the price you would hope the service and food would be better.

Restaurant is very pleasant and consistent. Service was prompt. Food as always very nice. Only objection is that it is a little noisy sometimes
