Beautiful venue, incredible food and awesome service!
We held my stepson's rehearsal dinner at Soho South and it was absolutely perfect. We had so many comments on the quality of the food: "the shrimp and grits were the best I've ever had!" and "the beef tenderloin was excellent…so tender, so flavorful!". It's a great atmosphere for a celebration and the Soho South team made it so easy for us, both throughout the planning stages (navigating a wedding through COVID-19!) and through their excellent service the night of the dinner. They were a pleasure to work with and made the rehearsal dinner a very special evening.Sent on 09/21/2020

This venue seriously speaks for itself! My wedding was a destination wedding and I booked this place for the reception before even seeing it in person. When I walked through the doors I knew right away that I made the right decision. Pictures don't do it justice. This place has so much detail that the amount of decorations you need is very little.
The food was amazing, especially the meatballs we had as a starter at cocktail hour. The staff that worked the reception were amazing and had everything out in a timely manner. I highly recommend using this venue for your wedding and or reception!
