    I think SoMo sets itself up for success in most aspects. When it came to execution on the food I had, I was left wanting a bit more. The other three diners with me had a good experience with their meals however, the short rib breakfast tacos I ordered came out as chopped bacon and scrambled eggs in a flour tortilla and therefore lacked any and flavor as well as short ribs.

    Had issues with my steak temperature ( third time total at this restaurant ). I asked for medium well and friend asked for medium. Steaks came out opposite. While I understand this may have been a plating issue, this still shouldn’t have happened. Waitress was nice and showed us that she put it in correct which I didn’t doubt because she read it back to us twice and it was correct. Not to mention she was my waitress previously and was great. Manager rectified issue promptly. However second try , my medium well steak was perfect and the medium steak was rare. We didn’t send back this time. By this time we were very hungry and getting full off mimosas. Due to this happening multiple times and being told previously from a waiter that this happens in the kitchen with steak often, my suggestion would be to ensure the chef has a food thermometer. I would be remiss if I didn’t say the steak was great. My food here always come out delicious so consistency isn’t the problem. Once again the manager was understanding and took care of us. This is the reason why I will continue to eat here and recommend as one of the best brunch spots in Philly. I did not remove stars for the steak mix up.

    We sat at a table on the sidewalk, both looking out toward the street and got a great people watching view of Manyunk. Our waiter was fantastic, understated and responsive, couldn't have been better. The food was just what we asked for, prepared beautifully and tasted great. I have food sensitivities and they were respectful to my needs and prepared the food just as I like it. Good experience.

    Drinks were ok. Had strawberry mimosa but there was nothing different then a regular mimosa. Also the watermelon drink had tasted like it was missing ingredients. But food was good.

    Cool concept, poorly executed. Food is mediocre at best. Selection is small. Food just wasn’t impressive. Our server was cold and distant. Food came out slow and out of order. Drinks were weak. Wouldn’t recommend this spot

    The food was very good. Service was a average. The only downside was the noise level early in the evening (6pm) was very loud. It was hard to have a conversation. Overall, a good place and I would go back.

    The host wasn’t hospitable at all or had any common sense, I walked in requested dining for 2 and the host stated that all tables were booked without checking. I asked was it booked because of reservations and he said yes. I walked out to the corner and made a reservation for less than 15 minutes thru open table when all that could have been handled by the host. I just find it very rude and inappropriate to have empty tables waiting for reservations when people walk in… Anyhow the food was stellar

    Our brunch reservation was for outdoor seating due to COVID concerns among our group but we were seated in their ‘backyard’ hut that didn’t really feel outdoors, probably something built to accommodate guests during the winter COVID months. The service was ok, but our waitress complained about being tired when seating us even though we were seated when the restaurant opened, and throughout the meal she kept coming back to ask if we were done with dishes, making it feel like we had to hurry up. The food was good, standard brunch fare though nothing stood out.

    I wasn’t pleased with the brunch menu. For someone who doesn’t eat meat and trying to eat healthy, the options weren’t good at all. It took a while for a waitress to even bring me water. Sorry but I won’t be returning

    Salmon was a tad salty. Hummus needed more flavor (not creamy at all) but a very nice presentation. Asian Honey Salad was excellent. Calamari was very good. Waitress didn’t know any of the brands of tap beers. We came in at 5:30p and as it got busier we saw the waitress less and less. Margaritas were good. Ambiance: loved the music but decor was boring. Good crowd for a Tuesday. No s&p on any of the tables, interesting? Asked for check after waiting for several minutes and handed waitress my debit card. She came back with the charge slips only and I had to ask for the copy of the itemized bill which is a big no-no for me. Minor issues for the most part and easily corrected. Our first time and we enjoyed our experience. We’ll be back!

    The service was great, The appetizers were very good. The entrees not so great. The scampi needed something green in it because it was a large dish that became monotonous. Also, I think a different pasta would work better. The wide linguini didn't work so well with shrimp - too hard to get into one mouthful. The mac and cheese was an enormous amount of just one thing - should have been a side not an entree. Maybe offer it with a sausage/pasta something? The entree offers somehow seemed limited, How about adding something like Chicken Sicilian to the entrees?

    Sat outside in 90 degree weather and it took over 15 minutes to get a server to bring water over- despite letting the host know more than once that we needed water. I understand places are understaffed but the restaurant needs to then not overbook and prioritize service rather than money.
