I was sad to find out sozo's was no longer associated with open table. That will effect how often we go out there. Too bad.

I've been to Sozo multiple times for both dinner and lunch. The food and service has been consistently great! Servers are always friendly and helpful. The food is original and fantastic. The value is awesome for the quality of food. Strongly recommend this place!

We had a very nice dining experience. Had the chimchurri steak salad. It was very good. Usually this restaurant is pretty loud, but tonight the level was very good, though the restaurant was pretty busy.

I had low expectations, but my tuna risotto was excellent and my wife's pasta was very good, too. These guys were also just a finalist for top 5 burgers in the state. Definitely worth a visit for quality, casual dinner.

Service was ok. She was efficient but not real friendly.
Food came in a timely manner . The filet was very good!

We were travelling across the country (from Las Vegas to Chicago) and were looking for some good food at a local eatery. Sozo turned out to be a welcome find. Everyone tried something different from the menu. The Shrimp w/Grits was outstanding and a very accommodating but not oversized portion. Ribeye was great, but we would have liked the bone on, otherwise, cooked to perfection. The Tuna w/Risotto was perfectly seared and tasty. One of the specials, Scottish Salmon, was good but the portion was very small. We didn't have dessert but enjoyed drinks with our meal, wine and beer selections were good but they were out of the beer we selected.

Food was on time for each course. Lettuce chicken wraps app was difficult to eat. Desert appeared to be premade. Like a Mrs. Field's cheesecake dressed up with some Hershey's chocolate syrup. But since it was our anniversary it free. So whatever. I had the hanger steak with chimicurri sauce. It was awesome!

We had dinner here following our daughter's graduation from UNK. My wife had seen the chef interviewed on local television a few months before. The reviews we read were also positive. We were not disappointed. Locally sourced meat and produce, coupled with good preparation made this a delightful and memorable evening. Everyone enjoyed their steaks, pasta and other menu items. A very nice meal. Our server was quite good, also.

The salmon and spring pasta were very good. The lime coconut cake was great.
