Overall this place is great. However they only had a prefixed menu that didn’t make any sense to what you’d expect for brunch . No meats were allowed to be added . I don’t know about everyone else but an omelette with out meat for sides was pointless. Again this was for Easter . Now if I had known I would’ve went somewhere else as the prefixed menu also was overpriced for their poor options provided.

Our waiter was extremely nice and the food was really good the only thing I can complain about is you made a reservation for standard seating and we’re still sad all the way in the back in these tiny paws they’re a little colder than I like however the ambience is beautiful and the meatballs were amazing

The service manager Marisa was very accommodating. My colleague and I are both in the food service industry and it is always amazing to see someone at the top of their game. Service, food and ambience were all great, but Marisa is what made our experience shine.

Our waitress lost the ticket to our food and because we were seated next to the kitchen I heard the entire conversation. Once the food came it was worth the wait. Food and drinks were amazing

Our server, Gina, was thee best. She was very attentive and checked on us frequently. The bottomless mimosas were on point and Gina made sure our glasses stayed full. I had the brussels and the Somo classic and my aunt had the avocado toast and Somo classic. The food was amazing, I’m eating my brussels now as I’m writing lol.

First and foremost, the food and drinks here were extremely good. 10/10 forsure. The only complaint I had was the seating, I noticed that the green house that I was in was a little broke, our table had no table cloth, and there was leftover mess in our space. Other than those mishaps, everything was perfect, I would still return here for the great food and customer service.

This was one of the worst restaurants i have ever dinned at. I will say, i had a later reservation, but why offer late times if you are not going to be able to accommodate your guests. the entire time i was rushed through my meal by the waitress. she was impersonal, rushy, and rude. The "Filet" was not a filet if you ask me and was very very tough. I was even told that i couldn't order juice because they were about to close, but we had just gotten there, WITH RESERVATIONS. I do not recommend this restaurant. HIGHLY DISSASTISFIED,

Wait times were very long. Portions are small for the price... My food was amazing, but my friend ordered something that tasted very bad. It was taken off of the bill, and we were offered a free dessert, however, when we got the bill, we were informed that we had to pay for the dessert... After the fact.

Wow this is the first restaurant I have disliked in a very long time ... I am a foodie so my dining experience has to be A exceptional and it just wasn’t it ...the table look like it hadn’t been cleaned , the water look like it was old . The server was BLAH! Took forever to order drinks and food .. I ordered a mango margarita ( server said “the drink is the best you will enjoy it “ finally for my drink and it was watered down . The place is small so I don’t understand why it took so long . I ordered wings and fries . I never order a basic appetizer but the menu was very limited and unappealing . I will never eat at this restaurant again . I give it 2 stars and that’s being nice .

This was our first time at SOMO and a friend of ours suggested to go there because we were looking for bottomless mimosas. Even though we missed the mimosas we decided to stay for food and drinks and let me tell you, it was AMAZING. Needless to say, we came back for brunch and the mimosas!

After having a negative experience on Valentine’s Day, we decided to give Somo another try after the manager Marissa mailed us a gift certificate to make it up to us, which was outstanding customer service. Tonight was a delight! We enjoyed dinner in a nicely heated private pod. We had the ginger glazed salmon and the filet and both were out of this world

Absolutely horrible experience. The worst experience I’ve ever had at a restaurant. I would never recommend or go back here. If I could give this place 0 stars, I would.

We waited 2 hours for 1 drink, a terrible appetizer (that came out cold) and was so annoyed that we ended up leaving and telling them to cancel our other appetizer and entrees.

We went to Friendly’s afterwards and the service & food was 100% better than this place.

It was a busy night which I understand but I made a reservation in advance. We had to wait for 20 minutes before being seated in a "Chalet" which was basically a hut with 3 other tables and an open door in the back. I made a reservation for outside seating for a reason.

The food took far too long and so did the drinks. Not once did anyone offer to comp our drinks or offer a free round because of the delays. They just kept saying sorry its busy...finally we asked someone about our drinks we had ordered 40 min prior and magically they appeared within minutes.

Clearly they weren't prepared for the evening even though everyone who came in said they had made a reservation.

I will not be dining here again!
