SoDo Ratings and Reviews

I usually have the Latin Salmon when I come, which is amazing, but I switched it up and had the pork chop. The mustard glaze was the perfect balance of sweet and savory. And I love a place that asks you how you want your pork cooked. Mine was a hint of pink in the center, perfect! The only downside we experienced was that my husband and friend both ordered the rack of wild boar, and it tasted pretty much the same as domesticated pork. It was still good, but not the darker, gamier meat they were expecting. And Kat always delivers excellent service! Thanks for making our experience special.

We ordered two appetizers, two Caesar salads, two soups, four different entrees, and two desserts. The Caesar salads had almost no dressing (could have used a little more), of the four entrees, only the Chicken Piccata was poorly prepared. The chicken was tough. Usually the chicken breasts are pounded thin, sautéed, and are fork tender. Theirs was hunks of chicken breast that had to be sawed to make bite size pieces. We will definitely return, but not for Chicken Piccata.

We ate here during our local restaurant week and I will be back. Very interesting menu with a blend of Latin inspired dishes as well as wild boar, scallops, etc. I had Moroccan spiced short ribs on a bed of polenta with kalmatta olives and apricots. It was delicious. The service was excellent. Our waitress was also the bartender and she managed to keep track of our needs (i.e. water, wine pouring) as well as mix drinks. She was very positive and out going. Prices are reasonable for these gourmet dishes.

Had a wonderful dinner at SoDo! This was our second time visiting. We sat outside and enjoyed a very nice even2. The waiter remembered me and that I had food allergies. We went through the menu and over the special Reno Plates dining promotion. The five of us ordered salads and soup. The soup of the day was jalapeño pumpkin and it was delicious. We all ordered entrees that were plated beautifully and tasted great. We had salmon, wild boar, sirloin, rib eyes with veggies and various potato side dishes. We had dessert- loved the flan, cheesecake and chocolate creme brule. Steven, our waiter, was great! We will definitely be coming back. Huge Thanks to SoDo!

We enjoyed our experience at SoDo. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. We had chosen a later seating, which kept us after closing, but we were never felt rushed and our waiter assured us that all was fine. Everyone enjoyed the food and drinks and the special dessert which was presented. Thanks for a great evening.

Joel and his staff are top notch. If this restaurant was in a larger, "hip" city, it would be a top Michelin Star rated restaurant. But for now its a hidden Reno jem. The atmosphere is cozy with a touch of industrial. The food is spectacular and always presented perfectly. The staff is always pleasant and non-pretentious. Its on our list of "regulars"

We arrived eArlier than expected, but took us right in. We had appetizers (calamari, then scallops with pork belly) that were both delicious. Heartily recommend the Hangar Steak. My SO had the swordfish (special) that was also delicious. We had drinks, Makers Mark Manhattan, some Chardonnay and ice tea. All were great - real brewed tea! We will definitely go again. There are still many menu items I'd like to try. Price is moderate, but real food prepared beautifully! Our waiter was Kenyi and she was terrific. Thanks for a great dinner - we will be back!

Two had the Airline Chicken, one had Alaskan Halibut, one had Calamari. The Chicken was excellent, although we both felt it should have been served hot instead of warm. The halibut was good in texture and flavor but not outstanding. The Calamari was very good. Overall, the dining was very good and I do recommend this restaurant. With some heat to the chicken and a little more flavor to the Halibut, the experience would have been 5 stars.

This was one of SoDo's Test Kitchen Tuesdays. Appetizers were very good - wife had a fruit-green salad, I had shrimp. Entrees wife had fish which was very good, I had tri-tip which was, in a word, TOUGH. I realize tri-tip is not the tenderest cut of meat, but it can be made reasonably tender. This was not. Flavor was good, with a tasty and spicy rice/beans side. Dessert was a chocolate-strawberry whoopee cake, that simply tasted like chocolate cake with strawberries on top. Nothing special. By far this was the least exciting meal we've had at SoDo. Certainly below our expectations, whether it was Test Kitchen or regular menu. Knowing their normal menu, it certainly won't be our last trip, it's one of our favorites. Service was, as always, superb.

This was the first time we attended Sodo's Taste Kitchen on Tuesday night. We've been there many times before for dinner. They stuck us in the back corner between 2 large parties. We had to yell at each other to have a conversation. Our waiter was rushed and it showed. He immediately came to the table to take our order without any pleasantries. He didn't listen to the instructions for a glass of water (No ice, no lemon) and seemed really annoyed when we asked for bread.
I ordered the chicken, bland, flavorless, stringy. The pasta would have been much better hot. What was that flavor, sour cream? He had the swordfish and said it was cooked just the way he likes it. He especially liked the black rice.
The desserts were amazing. I wish the service was better. It dampened the evening.

We had dinner here to celebrate my Dad's birthday. They comped us a dessert, which was really generous, and my Dad said it was the best flan he's ever had. Our server said they make it themselves. The dinners were okay. As a vegan, there were only a couple of options for me, salad (hold the cheese), or the orzo pasta (again, hold the cheese). I was disappointed that their tomato soup and southwest bean soup (soup of the day) were made with chicken broth even though they could have easily been made with vegetable broth. I chose the pasta and they "veganized" it for me and added extra vegetables. It was good and the portion was very big--I had leftovers for lunch the next day.

SoDo is a charming restaurant tucked in a residential area. We sat outside and the ambiance was lovely. The menu had just changed the week before, which means there are some kinks are they adjust to the new offerings, but it is a fun menu. We had: Scallop and Crispy Pork Belly app -- scallop was perfect, peach marmalade yummy but strange, waffle croutons were great in concept but poorly executed, and the pork belly was low quality. Hanger Steak - awesome chimichurri, good quality meat, tasty sides. Sea Bass - a little overcooked but lovely caper sauce.
Overall we found the menu to be adventurous and tasty - they just need to get in their groove. Couldn't find any wine we loved by the glass, but it was all drinkable. Service by Wilson was a little manic but very attentive. We had a great meal. The best part was enjoying the outdoor patio!

Steven our waiter was excellent, as always. He is such a treasure for your business. I will also compliment your chef Justin that night who found out that the boar was not to what my brother had requested (medium rare) and he came to the table to personally apologize and presented the boar as requested. We were all thoroughly impressed and it makes an outstanding statement of your business and your standards. Many thanks. We had a terrific meal and time at your establishment.

The food was outstanding and Steven, our waiter, was very helpful and knowledgable on the menu and it's preparation. Both my husband and I ordered seafood entrees and were pleasantly surprised with a " mid-course" of short ribs and mashed potatoes. The portions were so generous, we had no room for desert .

Finally had a chance to return for dinner, as it's my usual lunch go-to. After visiting the Nevada Museum of Art (another downtown gem), we headed over for a late dinner (8:45). A perfect night topped by a perfect dinner. The calamari app is almost a meal in itself, always done to perfection. Our mains were a perfectly cooked hangar steak and a pork tenderloin. Washed it down with a nice cab franc. Service only outdone by the food. Cheers!
