Excellent restaurant with great ambiance, attentive staff and, most importantly, fantastic food. My steak (with bacon, onion butter!!) was prepared perfectly and my vegan buddy’s meal was also spot on. Cannot go wrong with Sobo Café.

My wife and I visited Sobo during restaurant week and had an amazing meal. We started with the chicken liver mousse, which was a bit thick and not as easy to spread but had a rich taste that more than made up for the effort. While the grilled stuffed grape leaves were good, my heirloom tomato salad was delicious.The highlight... More

Eggs are one of my favorite breakfast foods. Especially when they're prepared a little differently than just two eggs over easy or scrambled with some toast. On this particular morning, I was craving shakshuka even though I've never had it before. Pictures of it looked awesome and I knew it was right up my alley. After a quick search on... More

This Cafe reminds one of the old "Cheers" tv series where "everybody knows your name" Great menu and great food. Warm, friendly management and wait staff who do remember your name. Service and food are excellent. Sound level is good even though there is a bar at one end of the dining area.

Had dinner at Sobo Café and it was OUTSTANDING!!! We had the red wine sangria and it was a great balance between wine and sweetness. Just perfect!! We shared the Smoked Salmon with Goat Cheese, Humus, and the Spicy Feta spreads and they were each delicious served with toasted bread, carrots and cucumbers. I had the Seared Salmon which was...

Food was fresh and a nice little bar. Walkable to the inner harbor and fed hill area. Good place for a quick fresh meal. The owners are there and make sure you are taken care of.

Visiting Baltimore from Connecticut. I'm so glad I trusted the on-line reviews. This was a fantastic experience! From the moment we stepped into the quaint dining room, we were greeted with enthusiasm. Began with the rosemary hummus app. WOW! The flavor was perfect, and an unexpected delight was the veggies served with it were marinated and very tasty. The bread... More

The food is amazing, I recommend the spreads. But what really is amaZing is how at home you feel there, from the music to the fresh flowers on the tables and the stellar service. really awesome would come back!
