Food was good but pricey. It would have been nice if they offered bottomless mimosas like all the other restaurants downtown. Instead they charge $8 a glass but don’t tell you that until you get the bill.

This review is a 1 simply because of the horrible service we received from our waitress. She was not friendly and did not communicate with us whatsoever. She literally didn't say hello, introduce herself, thank you for coming, or goodbye...and nothing in between. She made...More

I’m not sure what all they put in these sweet potatoes but they are awesome. This is my go to place for a healthy lunch or snack. They are reasonably priced. The staff is always nice.

Plus the food is very good! Good variety of menu items and generous portions. Try the tomato bisque soup with either a sandwich (grilled cheese) or salad. For a heartier entree, the blackened salmon cannot be beat. Very good service, reasonable prices.

Hello, Unfortunately the only day we accept reservations is Sunday brunch. We're a casual restaurant so we operate on a first come first served basis.

Soho South Cafe has been made famous by its patrons as one of Savannah's staple weekly lunch and Sunday brunch spots. Opening its doors in 1997, Soho South Cafe is located in the heart of Historic Downtown Savannah, appropriately named after the iconic New York City neighborhood for its proximity to nearby shops and entertainment venues. Built originally as an automotive service station in 1945, the building sat vacant for a number of years before the restaurant's original owners acquired the space and transformed it into a restaurant. Most recently, the restaurant was acquired by Daniel Reed Hospitality and remodeled to make improvements to the existing model which represents the latest adaptation as it stands today. The design of the restaurant incorporates elements of iconic, archetypal New York City. The quirky, eclectic esthetic lends a sense of humor to the monumental, vast interior space which includes the buildings original exposed elements such as the steel windows, iron trusses, and solid wooden garage doors. The overall atmosphere results in a casual dining experience that works perfectly for lunch and private events.
