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!

Hip but cozy at the same time. This is the type of restaurant that infuses comfort food with a fresh face...and does it with style.

Food was healthy, fresh and had unique combinations. Fun, trendy atmosphere. Make a reservation so that you can get a table this place is small but that adds to the vitality of the restaurant. This is in a happening location in Baltimore. You could even walk from the Inner Harbor, all be it a healthy walk.

$20.14 for a three course dinner was a bargain. SoBo has an excellent chef! Appetizers of mussels were plentiful and delicious. The mac and cheese was generous and scrumptious. Grape leaves had the taste of real lamb but were small and only two to a plate. Entrees: excellent salmon on white bean puree and salmon, a thick perfectly done pork... More

Went here for restaurant week just to check it out and we were not disappointed. The food is elegant yet simple and it tasted divine. I got the impression that the menu changes, but if you get the chance to try the stuffed grape leaves, definitely do. It was completely packed and we were lucky that we got there early... More

I love it here...started with the always yummy sangria. They only serve wine, beer, sangria and a few sake drinks. First we had a threesome of hummus, spicy feta and salmon which is served with veggies and the crunchiest cheesy toasts ever! For dinner I chose the pork chop with a sweet potato and veggie pancake with applesauce. Cleaned my... More

Staying in Federal Hill was great and very convenient but the majority of the restaurants around there serve pub food. Which is fine and I don't mind it, but after a while there are so many burgers and fries you want to eat. This place was a great find! Locally sourced food! Fresh! Vegetables! Family run! Had a roasted pepper... More

The Cross Street market area in South Baltimore offers many bars, restaurants, and cafes--all being a short hop to either stadium. Sobo probably seats 16-20, offers six locally brewed beers on tap, and an interesting menu of appetizers and entrees. The kitchen s skilled, and keeps up with the orders,the dishes are served by two cheerful ladies, and the sound... More

I had an awesome experience at SoBo Cafe. I've bookmarked this place for a while, but never had a chance to go until one of my friends randomly decided to call this place up, and secured a reservation for a large group of 10 for 30 minutes later. That's pretty clutch if you ask me. We arrived and everything was... More

Had dinner both Friday and Saturday night, it was that good. Cute restaurant in federal hill between all of the bars. Anna, the owner, is adorable and greets all her guests with a smile. All the servers were friendly but Jim the bartender was my favorite. You can tell there are a lot of regulars who come in to see... More
