We booked online for dinner and when we got there they said our reservation was canceled and sorry nothing they can do they have no room to seat us. We ate takeout from across the street not bad.

Nice view! The menu on the roof is limited, so it was just okay. But excellent service makes up for it!

First time at the Roof at Soco, it was nice to sit outside in this environment. There was a DJ, music was good and at a good volume that you could have a conversation. The burger was very tasty and perfectly cooked.

I was visiting from Cleveland, Ohio. I stayed in The Delta. I enjoyed the rooftop. My server was awesome. I forgot her name. My drink was basically koolaid. I had the Sangria. I don’t drink often but when I do I expect a nice sip. My quinoa bowl was the good!!! Very tasty! I loved the atmosphere and the safety protocols in place.

I wish I knew about this place sooner, reasonably priced for so close to major attractions, great views, good music, good range of drinks at fair prices. Very pictureesque especially the lobby.

Our server was great (can’t remember her name, but she was extremely tatted). She was very attentive, super friendly and made the experience worthwhile.

It was a little windy but a good first experience.

Limited on mixed drinks

Only thing I wasn't too pleased with is noticed hostess bringing guest onto the patio, their masks were removed before being seated in their designated area. Per covid rules they should if had masks until they were seated. Host/hostess should be enforcing rules. There are there to keep us safe!!

Where do I start? I was so disappointed I had to leave and go to another restaurant because I left hungry. Terrible service. I ended up getting the guacamole and chips...chips were stale which defeats the purpose. The chicken skewer was delicious, however the coleslaw might as well have just come out of the tub. The $7 tacos had such dry shells I might as well have used it for the guacamole. Big shoutout to the manager Darwin for taking care of it and speaking to the server...only go here for drinks.

The food is overpriced for what you’re getting and they don’t have any sides other than tasteless chips and salsa. The views were nice though.

The service wasn't super; it took a while for a server to come and greet us after we were seated. The food was okay, not particularly tasty. (I live in Chicago and we have excellent Mexican cuisine, the chips + guac, tacos, and torta left a lot to be desired). The drinks were also okay. I was hoping for more crafted cocktails rather than what tasted like pre-made mixers with liquor added. I might have had too high of expectations and thus my poor rating. I will also acknowledge that we visited during Covid, and therefore they may not be operating at their best.

Very accommodating. Table was a little wobbly and the staff was very helpful in finding us a new table. Waitress was nice and checked in frequently. Food was ok. More options would be nice but, the vibe isn’t a sit down restaurant vibe anyway so I understand. View is amazing. Very IG worthy. Music selection could be a little better. Maybe just the DJ that day. Personal preference but, not really trying to hear loud EDM when trying to have a conversation. Lol. Overall nice night out.

Service was average, I called to change from 4 to 5 people and it seemed like an effort. I was told it might be okay but we’d probably be squashed. Got there and there were 4 couches that could each accommodate 2-4 people so not sure what the fuss was about - and there were a few others like this available. Server was okay, but hard to find and didn’t check if we needed anything. Also did not clear the table of dirty glasses and plates. Food was really tasty, except the salsa which was average, but the mushroom tacos, chips and guacamole and chicken pinchos were great. Loved all the cocktails we tried!
