Good-not great – Pleasant experience although don't bring children. I asked when making my reservation if it was child friendly to which I received a "yes", but this seems to be too quiet and formal for young children.
Good eats and a smooth club scene equals three floors of relaxation and enjoyment. – In Short
Like all the restaurants in the Big Burrito chain, the interiors are well designed, with beautiful Murano glass lighting fixtures throughout. Colors here are muted, as is the noise level, except near the bar. Expect to encounter upscale yuppies and club scene students. Chef Bill Fuller does wonders with dishes like the crispy kimchi and vegetarian dumplings with a roasted red pepper dipping sauce. The pork dumplings are outstanding, as is the pad thai.
Phenomenal – Definetely the best of the Big Burrito chain. They're all excellent actually, but I love the asian flair in a classy atmosphere at Soba. The service is fantastic. Very friendly and professional. Their appetizers are some of the best around. Also a decent veggie selection for those of you who are looking for that. It is pricey but worth it. Oh and you have to check out the bathrooms...very eclectic.
What happened to this place? – Prior to the fire, I had the pleasure of eating at Soba twice and everything was amazing. Great food, great atmosphere and reasonable prices. But I went back there about 4 months ago and I was shocked by how how bad my experience was. The appetizer, some sort of raviolis, was very small and bland tasting. But the price of entrees doubled! $20 for some crappy stir fry and if you want steak, it'll cost you at least $35.. I won't be going there again.
Excellent menu – Excellent foods - appetizers, dinners and desserts... I love the drink menu and the atmosphere is really perfect for a date or a night out with friends. I love the Soba... Definitely worth trying.
Best Drinks – In addition to great food, service and atmosphere, the bartenders here make the best drinks in the city.
