We had a great time at Sobo Cafe the other night! We always enjoy the chicken pot pie and the carrot cake was truly exceptional. The happy hour drink and wine selections at the bar were very good and very reasonably priced. Overall a great night out!

We've only been to Sobo Cafe twice and each time it's been well worth the visit. The food is delicious, the staff friendly and efficient and theres a good atmosphere. The only reason we haven't been more often, is because we live in Scotland , U.k. We can't wait to go back to Baltimore to visit Sobo again.

I have rarely felt so comfortable and welcome taking a group of six to dinner. Everyone was impressed with their meals. It was a wonderful casual setting for a family pre-Thanksgiving event. Thanks for your warm reception and making us feel special.

We started with 3 spreads, which were delicious (especially the spicy feta), and the waiter happily brought us more crostinis. The steak salad was wonderful, and the mushroom ravioli had a rich cream sauce. Service and atmosphere were excellent! Always a great experience at this place. The sister restaurant (Sobo Market) is also a terrific neighborhood gem.

My husband and I came here for the first time last Saturday night, and plan to come back soon! Everything was just right, from the window-front table waiting for us, to our friendly server with great beer and food recommendations, to the food itself. We ordered two things each from the appetizer/soup/salad section and shared a dessert, and found it to be just the right amount of food. We had difficulty choosing just this much food from all of the interesting and appealing choices, and will come back to try the potpie, burgers, and more another time.

We've been to SoBo many times over the years since it first opened. While we've always enjoyed it, I would say this last visit was the best ever. The food was simply fantastic. It's a friendly place and they happily allowed us to linger. Go. You won't be disappointed.

I've had three stellar meals here. Thoughtful and adventurous dishes on the menu alongside staples, so this spot has something to please everyone. Staff is so friendly. Their pasta night was not only an awesome deal, but also delicious so I think I'll make that a regular outing ($20 for chef's homemade pasta creation, side salad, glass of wine). Really pleased with this place all around, and definitely encourage others to check it out!

My wife and I always have an incredible experience each time we visit. The staff has always been kind and helpful. The impeccable food, cocktails, and ambiance are the reasons why we return for most of our special occasions.

I travel for business and have 2-3 business dinners each week. The quality of the food was very good but the portion sizes were the smallest I have seen in years. My customers and I were quite shocked and not impressed. We made a comment to the waiter and he pretended he did not hear us. We are all women on the slender side so not heavy eaters. I personally went for a snack when I returned to the hotel as I was still hungry. I would not recommend.

Although the place was very busy, the staff did a nice job making sure our party had everything we needed. The ribs were very good and the portion size was generous. A special shout out to the bartender who made a champagne cocktail with blueberries and pomegranate juice. Excellent!

We ate here 3 times while in town for a few days. The food was delicious and the services was great 2 out of the 3 times. We did hit them during an incredibly busy day the second time for brunch but it took forever for someone to even acknowledge we'd been seated and then she forgot to get our drinks and had to come back & ask again what drinks we ordered. No one refilled our water or other drinks that visit either. But the other 2 times, everything was perfect so I'm chalking it up to business (even though our server had plenty of time to stand around talking to customers & other employees).

We were running late for a 6:30 reservation Friday night. I called 40 minutes before and they were able to seat us at 7:30. They did everything possible to accommodate us. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Even on a busy night with our changes they didn't miss a beat.
The food was Amazing and all three meals perfect as described!! I had the Scallops and an IPA. The ladies had Steak and Chicken Pot Pie. Both meals were Delicious!!
The prices fair and portions were a good size. We will be back again soon!!

Fyi...My first time eating and Sobo. I had the Indian autumn chicken as an entree and the bread pudding for dessert. Both were so tasty and filled with flavor...my compliments to the chef. I'm anxiously looking forward to my next meal at Sobo and trying other menu selections. Great environment as well.

My FAVORITE place to eat! I love their food. It's fresh, full of flavor and caters to all pallets. I went for my birthday but forgot to tell them it was my birthday =( because j would have loved to try their excellent list of desserts. Love their wine selections and their mojito is quite tasty! Definitely recommend for any occasion. I keep sending folks to Sobo cuz it's a one of a kind eatery. Plus Monday's are pasta nights and one can never pass up a good pasta night

I was here on Saturday before a Raven's night game. The staff was very friendly; we arrived a few minutes before they opened and they brought us in and gave us drinks while they were setting up.
I thought the Thai Mussels were some of the best flavored mussels I have had.
The burger was really good and the flatbread was tasty as well.
A small but nice selection of craft beers and we will definitely be back again.
