Had to wait for the table, but hey it was Sunday and it was a group of 10. Took a while for the food to get here, but worth the wait. Amazing grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup. The place is awesome as well, a must if you're in Savannah. The chicken and waffles were really good to.

What I loved about this restaurant is it satisfied often two competing requirements from myself and my significant other. 1) good food 2) ambience This had both! Quick service - even by NY standards. And large portions. The tomato soup and grilled cheese was elevated with good ingredients and execution. Perfect harmony on the pallet. Plus the option for an... More

The food is delicious, fresh, and inventive! The atmosphere and restaurant design are fun and beautiful. And they have amazing drinks! The only complaint is that we had a VERY SLOW waitress who took forever to take our order, bring drinks, and checks. So that was annoying. But otherwise, the food was great.

Soho was recommended by a lady in the gift shop at the trolley station. It did not disappoint. It has a nice variety in menu, lively efficient staff and a piano player to entertain without dominating the sound waves. We went about 11:30. There was a large group waiting as we left.

Went with a group and had the grilled cheese with tomato soup. Good value and very filling for 10$. The wait can be long on the weekends so just try to get reservations.

Definitely will be back! Fried green tomatoes and collard greens were phenomenal. Service was okay. Very friendly but I think there is some sort of unspoken rule in savannah where servers never check back in on their tables. It happened at several restaurants we went to haha but none the less a great place for lunch!

This large warehouse space is made cozy with plants and cute furnishings. The food was outstanding especially the fried green tomato appetizer. Soup and grilled cheese with fried pickles was delicious. Didn't eat this but saw the fried chicken with waffles that also looked outstanding. The varied menu provided something for everyone. Cute bar area also available for dining.

Located by the Desoto Hilton this is an excellent restaurant. It can become crowd so get there early. The food is different, but very good. The service is great. Great place for lunch, dinner, or a Sunday brunch. Parking can be a little bit of a problem since the lot next door has limited spaces, but if you are walking... More

The food was excellent. I ahd fried shrimpa nd colalrd greens with bacon. The waffles were the best I ever tasted, the fries were great and even the Toato... More

Description
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.
