SoDo Ratings and Reviews
SoDo was disappointing, at best. Cocktails are terrible. Worst "Marg" I've ever had. Sent two cocktails back before ordering a bourbon on the rocks. Pretty tough to mess that up! Had the New York steak. It was smothered in a ginger sauce. I could not taste the meat because of the sauce and it was tough. Ceasar Salad was good. Lettuce was fresh and croutons was good. I would not go back.
It's among the top restaurants in Reno. I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. We all loved the braised short rib, the burger since we shared tastes at the table. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."
We were looking for a nice restaurant near Pioneer Theater to eat before catching a show. This is a trendy restaurant with very good food and excellent service. Those attributes also made it a very popular spot to eat, making my experience less than ideal simply due to the crowd. Fortunately, we made reservations and our table was waiting for us when we walked in. Unfortunately, our table was directly in front of the back door so every time someone walked out, we were blasted with an arctic breeze from outside. So...bottom line: the restaurant did everything right. I just need need to expect crowds near the theater on nights when there's a show. I would not hesitate to highly recommend SoDo to a friend who was looking for a good restaurant in town.
SoDo isn't nearly as good as it was two years ago; took waiter 15 mins to come to our table and offer water; waiter brought sweet potato fries to our table instead of sweet potato lasagne; wine by glass selection is poor; New York steak cooked unevenly, garlic mashed potatoes weren't garlicky at all; desserts very mediocre; overpriced for the quality served. Will not take another chance on this overhyped Midtown restaurant.
Seared Ahi was very good. 2nd meal was a seared Baramundi. The outside of it was so tough you couldn't cut it and when I tried to eat it I though it was a bone. There was no flavor. By the time I got another meal my husband was done and he had to sit and wait for me to eat. Not very impressive.
The service was excellent and the food was good but a little expensive. I ordered the tuna which was tasty but it seemed like it was missing a side. The greens provided with it weren't enough. The meal did have a lot of tuna meat which was nice & we ordered several appetizers which were all delicious.
A friend and myself did your "tasting dinner" last week and were very pleased with most of the menu items. There were a couple we didn't care for. My favorite dish was your kale salad. It was spectacular! The soup was excellent as was the chocolate truffle dessert. We didn't have it but we heard the ahi lasagna was fantastic. Thank you.
We did the Test Kitchen Tuesday on the last Tuesday of the month. It was a set menu for $30.00 with 3 courses with choices in each category. All our choices were very good but the standout was the Seared Ahi with miso ginger dressing. Great flavors and generous portion for an appetizer.
The place was hopping for a Tuesday and had a nice neighborhood atmosphere, people enjoying each others company, drinks and good food.
Went here for a second date, very pleased. Date was feeling under the weather so we did not explore the menu too much but the soup and salads were good. I've had the crab poppers in the past and love the sauce. Service was not overwhelming or absent, which is perfect when trying to chat. They brought us out the entire box of teas to choose from which was appreciated. They also put the flowers I brought in water while we ate. I want to say Hannah was our server but honestly I was paying attention to my date and missed that part. Would reccomend!
We had a fun, enjoyable meal on New Year's Eve. Everything was delicious: calamari, mushroom ravioli, endive salad, shortribs, salmon and the chocolate creme brûlée. Our server, Maria, was very sweet and attentive. The ambience is very pleasant. SoDo is one of our favorite local restaurants.
The place was exquisite and had a particular elegance to it. My relative and I wanted our sons to experience a rare excellence of taste in a nice restaurant and SoDo was the place. It was excellent for what we wanted. From the entrance of being seated to the service of the food to the end of the night, we enjoyed fine dining at its best. The food and service was par excellence. I would recommend to anyone looking for that experience. The owner greeted us and we had the dining experience we wanted.
After meeting Joel on the mountain, we decided to attend Test Kitchen Tuesday to see how SoDo is these days. A delightful surprise, as the food was excellent, and the staff was great! We'll definitely be back as the regular entrees being delivered to near by tables also looked wonderful.
The food was really good but the service was marginal at best. The restaurant was not crowded and it took quite a while for our food to arrive. Our waitress never offered to re-fill our water glasses. We had to make the request at the end of our meal for more water.
Love the food but the service really needs to improve.
I have been coming to the chiropractor next door to the restaurant off and on for years - have been wanting to try this place out, but but just never have. Well we finally thought of it for my wife's B/D dinner and glad we did. Great menu selection with a number of interesting preparations. I think all the dinner prices were very reasonable. I had the Berkshire pork chop special, which I enjoyed very much. My wife had the Blackened Salmon. They were very receptive to my wife's cheese allergy and noted it on the order.
Overall a great experience and looking forward to come back and be able to sit outside.
