Health and safety remain a priority for our guests. In the current climate we find ourselves in, we know you have many questions so we wanted to share the specific measures we are taking within our restaurants.

We care deeply about our hard working staff, loyal guests and South Baltimore community and are taking precautionary measures on top of the meticulous procedures we already have in place.

We pride ourselves on preparing our from-scratch menu with fresh ingredients and a whole lot of flavor. Our cozy, intimate dining room is the perfect setting to enjoy a seasonal dish and a glass of carefully chosen wine or beer. A perennial favorite among neighbors and visitors, we go out of our way to make everyone feel at home. We are gluten-free, vegetarian & vegan friendly.

We are a short walk from Camden Yards/Oriole Park & M&T/Ravens Stadium. We are very close to the Convention Center, Downtown & the Inner Harbor.

My husband always gets the chicken pot pie. He always says he is tempted to try something else on the menu, but the chicken pot pie is so good he can't pass it up. I tried the shwarma pita wrap with roasted fingerling potatoes. It was delicious. I have never been disappointed with a meal at SoBo. It is a place I am always comfortable inviting friends to.

The restaurant was busy and the service was still great. Drinks were the only thing that were just okay. No liquor so the “cocktails” were mostly wine and juice. Sangria was very sweet.

It’s easy to feel like you’re the only table there - there’s not a lot of background noise and the tables are arranged well to make you feel like you aren’t on top of each other.

The space is filled with Crystal Moll paintings which look so pretty against those saffron colored walls.

Not busy upon arrival, but soon picked up with takeout orders, patrons at the bar and inside and outside dining. Sadly, I forgot to get our server's name because she deserves a big shout out! One member of our party had some dietary concerns which our server addressed and verified with the kitchen staff. I feel our server went above and beyond in her attention to detail. The food was outstanding. No long waits, incredible taste and lovely presentation. My husband and I had the Korean Braised Short Ribs. Melt in your mouth delicious. The kimchi greens on top were a delightful surprise. We don't get to Baltimore much, but SoBo is a definite repeat. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience.
