"I've been here for brunch multiple times (great Bloody Mary/mimosa/Bellini prices) the food is always delicious. Always substitute for those tater tots, they're like nothing else.
Went in for dinner. Had the ahi tuna burger and it was very good and cooked correctly, very juicy and a larger 'patty' than I was expecting. Also got a bottle of wine for the table which is priced well.
Overall a great place and our waitress looked like Anna Kendrick, so there's that."
"Favorite place downtown – great food, great staff, other customers are all fun, no drama. Pre/post show/game, lunch, dinner or 'just because' – you can't go wrong here."
"Great place for a burger!
We were looking for new place to go for burgers and this turned out to be a good pick. Nice place, very casual and clean. They have a full bar and good selection of local craft beers. My wife and I both had their signature burgers and they were excellent. The homemade fries and potato chips are also very good. Our server was very friendly and we enjoyed talking to her. This isn't the place to go for a fancy dinner but if you want some great burgers in a fun spot, I would highly recommend it."
"I would like to preface this review by saying I ate at Hubert Keller's Burger Bar in Las Vegas last week, and they were one of the original 'upscale burger joints'... they are legit. The food at Soho Burger Bar is just as good and for being in Buffalo, that earns you 5 stars in my book!
We had a Living Social deal for this place and originally were going to go there before a Sabres game... unfortunately the NHL didn't cooperate and we were the jerks who came in to redeem our deal on the very last day it was valid. However, our hard-working waitress (we weren't the only ones!) was very kind and gave us great service despite being busy. The decor inside is very cool and funky... check out the lighting above the bar area!
We started off with the truffle tater tots. I'm a big fan of anywhere that serves tater tots, but these are HOMEMADE people! Anyone can heat up some Ore-Ida's and throw some fancy truffle salt on them and charge $6, but these are clearly made from scratch with love. In fact, all of their ingredients are locally sourced from Guercio's and their meat mixture is made especially for them at Johnny's Meats in Buffalo. I love that. OK back to the burgers... my husband had the Red Hot Chili Burger, which was delightfully spicy but flavorful and not just hot. I had the Gold Standard, which is their basic burger but its topped with cheddar, bacon, arugula, garlic chive aioli, and tomato confit. It was lick your fingers good. Its served with a side of freshly made potato chips and a nice crispy pickle, and when it arrived at our table, it looked a little on the small side... but that's because the burger itself is so thick so you're getting more meat:bun ratio. Perfection. Its served medium rare, so still a good amount of pink inside, which is how a good burger should be served. If you can't appreciate that, you should just go to Burger King for your well done burger that they have to cook to that temperature to prevent you from getting e. coli.
For dessert we each had an ice cream cone which was a perfect end to this all-American meal. Everything was just so awesome, I will definitely be back! This was the best burger I've ever had in Buffalo, hands down."

"Fantastic food!! We sat at the bar, bartender very friendly. I had the Steak & Egg burger (beef burger with a fried egg on top) and my boyfriend had the bison burger. I meant to taste his but by the time I thought to ask, he had already polished it off! Side dishes - vidalia onion rings were thick and tasty. Salt and vinegar chips I would go back just for them. Thin cut like potato chips with salt and malt vinegar. This was our first time there but will definitely be back!"

"On behalf of our group, I want to personally thank you and your team for making our evening, Saturday, July 9, 2011 in Buffalo so incredibly wonderful.
From the moment of our arrival, your personal greeting, your immediate attention to our request for a "walk-in" of a party of 20 was brilliant. Your team especially Zac, could not have done another thing to make our evening perfect. Prior to our arrival, we had gone to Century, they refused to accommodate our request for separate bills for each family and they put us upstairs, where it was incredibly hot. When I asked the server if I could speak to the Manager...the Manager literally yelled up from the bar and said, "What do they want to talk to me about?". At which point, all 20 in our group got up and left there completely empty restaurant.
We walked a short block and found you. Lucky were we...SOHO BURGER was incredible!
Your entrees were absolutely delicious and we were all in awe of the presentation. The girls especially loved your milk shakes, the presentation of the serving dishes and the home made chips were awesome. I personally had the shrimp cocktail and the veggie burger, which was exquisite. Our team was still talking about the restaurant yesterday and the size of the SHRIMP...oh my gosh...just awesome!
I'm a huge fan of the restaurant shows, the likes of Gordon Ramsey...he could learn a few things from you! As I believe your restaurant is top-notch and I know from my own business experience that a great business is only successful with great leadership. My hats off to you on a really great concept. You and the entire team at SOHO Burger have our promise that when we return to Buffalo; and, we do each summer for tournaments, we'll be visiting again."
