Wow! Sobo's has been our "date restaurant" for years. We moved and didn't get there for over a year - much has changed. The once creative menu has lost some of its zing. The food has lost its appeal. Usually I have to pick between several items on the menu that interest me and I have a difficult time making the decision. This last time I was having a hard time even finding something that sounded good to me. (The Steak and Eggs special sounded tempting, but not a 14 oz. cut of meat - that is enough for two people!) We gladly drove an hour to get here for many a date. It will be a long time before we go back after our last meal a week ago. We have proudly taken friends there for several different occasions, not again. Prior to this visit we would have given Sobo's 5 stars.
I don't think this is just our opinion. The woman at the table next to us made the comment "Sobo's is hit or miss, sometimes good, sometimes not. You never know what it will be when you go." A dear friend we introduced to Sobo's went for a Christmas lunch from work and was also very disappointed - they had failed to remove the cartilage from the lobster in her pasta.
