    SoBo Cafe was a small, quiet place in the Federal Hill area. It offered a varied food and drink menu with great service. I really enjoyed the dry rub bavette steak.

    It's been a while since I've been to SoBo Cafe, and it's still excellent. Very good good. Friendly service, and a cozy atmosphere. I've been going there for many many years and have never had a bad meal or experience.

    We had a great experience at SoBo for a girls' weekend dinner. We had the salmon, the gyros, the burger, and the Smith Island cake. Everything was delicious! Service was perfect, and a special treat was the background music, which brought up memories and sparked conversations for us.

    Great neighborhood gem of a restaurant. Pleasant, upscale casual American bistro vibe. Was in Baltimore for a work trip, staying right by Camden Yards, and was looking for a restaurant to offset the high-priced tourist traps in the Inner Harbor. My team loved the pleasant 1-mile walk through a nice residential neighborhood. The Future Ball cocktail is absolutely delicious and super inventive - I've never had anything like it. We all loved the mezze platter we got to share to start, and everyone said their food was great. The Korean short rib is awesome and a hefty portion, my colleagues enjoyed the burger, the bavette steak and the Peruvian chicken. Would absolutely go again, this was a super high quality and refreshing change from the usual expensive-but-bland business-person restaurants.

    Thank you to you and your guests for joining us for dinner. The whole team is so happy to see you had a wonderful experience. We would love to see you all again soon. Yes, the Future Ball and Peruvian are fan favorites, we love them too!
