Food and service great as always. No cutlery provided for the shared plates (Soco Salad Special) and the grilled Avocado was served with the skin on, which made a bit difficult to split between guests!

Es war super Service und auch das Essen war echt klasse. Das einzige 'Negative' war, dass der Kaffee nicht unbedingt empfehlenswert ist und auch der Orangensaft schmeckt eher semi gut...
Aber ich würde auf jeden Fall nochmal dort hingehen!!

Service war immer sehr schleppend. Oft sitzt man lange bis Getränke kommen. Speisen sind eigentlich sehr gut. Buffet wurde immer rasch aufgefüllt. Ohne Reservierung muss man länger auf Tisch warten, obwohl viele Tische frei waren, welche noch nicht abgeräumt waren. Weisses Toastbrot war auf Nachfrage aus?!?

Everything about this place was average, except the prices. Way overpriced for such a run-of-the-mill experience. The rooftop was not open - this was the case for the downstairs space.

Made a reservation, was seated promptly. Chose the street side patio, which was surprisingly not too noisy. Staff were friendly and attentive. Portion sizes were good, food was served hot. Had the meatball appetizer as a main dish was a great choice. Great overall, good for couples, families and groups

Rooftop should be open all day. It was a great disappointment that it opens at 4pm and not for lunch.

Great place to grab dinner and drinks before a concert at Scotiabank Arena. The patio is perfect on a summer night. Within the Delta Hotel.

The food and drink were very yummy and priced right. Our waiter was great. Only complaint is that I made a reservation for 6 people and all 6 of us got crammed into a booth.

The server Michael was amazing! The food was awesome and plentiful. The only small Criticism was that the tables were very close and felt like I was having dinner with the people beside us.
100% recommend

We wanted roof top but there was a private event happening. Food was ok. We found it to be super salty. Would definitely go back but for the roof top. Different menu. Service was fabulous! We would still recommend.

We weren’t starving but needed a light meal before the show, so we shared the green salad and pepperoni pizza. Both were delicious! The honey drizzle on the pizza was a great twist to an otherwise traditional pizza.
The service was excellent.

We had been here as a company’s team, having a breakout from a conference. We got a nice table, and noise level was low, so the team could have a good chat. The waitress was very friendly and helpful on questions and order changes. The entire team was very satisfied with the food quality.

We had a great experience at Soco and ended up eating there twice on a recent trip to Toronto. The food was excellent both times. My husband ordered the duck on our first visit, and I had the salmon. We ordered flatbreads on our second visit and they were wonderful. Good beer selection, and kid-friendly restaurant as well.

Initially planned to sit at roof bar which was far too hot (in the sun) and the music too loud (getting old I guess). Downstairs there are no booked tables outside but our friendly, helpful waitress found a table for us. Unfortunately even the friendly waitress couldn’t do much about the heavy delays on serving ordered drinks. If it hadn’t been for her, the score would be lower. Food was good though.

I’ve restaurant if you can seat down on the terrasse... Inside it is quite loud.
Very nice service.
I tried for the first time of my life a Mac’n cheese but this was too heavy.
Couldn’t finish my meal.
The pizza looked very delicious, next time I’ll try this.
Very good children’s menu.

Had an excellent roasted eggplant appetizer. Our mains were shrimp tagliatelle and a salad, both very good. Service was friendly and attentive. Seating is comfortable and reasonably spacious.

A nice selection of food but I was disappointed with my order. The mushroom soup wasn't hot and very salty. Grilled cheese sandwich was ok - very basic.

It’s about the third or fourth time I have been to Soca. Ordered the tuna poke it was so salty I had to exchange it for the grain salad. The waitress did mention that they had recently change the ingredients

We are at Soco prior to a concert at Scotia Arena June 25. The service and food are good, the issue we had was that we were seated by a large window in the corner with the afternoon sun. It was very hot and uncomfortable even with the shade down. When your paying a decent sum for dinner, the last thing you want is to have it ruined by running for the exit to cool down. That becomes the ONLY thing you remember about the experience.

Went here for a business lunch. I chose the place because of its location relative to the person I was meeting. It was pretty quiet. The food and service was ok. There was nothing particularly bad, but nothing stood out enough to make we want to go back unless I needed to have another meeting in a similar location.

Soco location is great, kitchen is good, quality is OK! Actually we wanted to reserve a table on the roof then it turned out no reservation was possible for the Soco roof through website. There is nothing written on the website about it. That was the only disappointment.
