“Legit chefs!!!!”
Reviewed 17 July 2014 via mobile

Came for a date night and have had this place on the to do list for a while. What a treat this place was.

The girlfriend and I opted for the chefs menu since this was our first time and figured it would be a good way get an overall feel of the chefs style. We did the 6 course menu at $40.

The two stand out dishes were the new orleans shrimp and the mussels and pasta...WOW!!! Everything was packed with flavor, fresh, and deeeeeelish!

You can taste the passion that goes into the dishes. Highly recommended!

“Interesting dishes on menu.”
Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

Started with the Florida tom salad, well they use a mustard style dressing, so asked for something different. They crrated a sherry/oil dressing which was great and the salad was fresh and flavour.

Next, I went with the Sobo noodle dish which has no meat and was very lite and refreshing on a hot Florida day. Most dished come in half and full serving sizes. The half sizes are still a great portion amount.

The atmosphere is kicked back and relaxing with no pressure and the staff will help even pickie eaters like myself.

“One of my new favorites!”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

I read some reviews on this place and we went with a party of 10 to try it out. Wow!! I had the most tender, tasty, curried goat (a special that night). I mean how many places can you order that? They have a great beer selection and a wonderful, unique menu. A definite 10 in my book!

“Got it all”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

With all due respect to Huey Lewis, this restaurant did it for our party of six. The apps rocked with the NOLA BBQ Shrimp and Mushroom Crostini worth every forkfull and then demanding sopping bread for the sauce. Gumbo, oxtails, gnocchi, and other entrees went over among my companions and the caramel dessert thankfully did not go back as our buyers remorse kicked in with orders of chocolate and bread budding. Oh, fine Malbec and 9% ABV New Beer smoothed lubricated the conversation.
Server remained outstanding and knowledgeable on the dishes, wines, and beers. We will be back for the Squid stuffed with Chorizo and some Cava.

“Amazing, eclectic,fun food!”
Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

Went to eat at Hot and soul upon a friends recommendation this weekend. What a great way to start a Father's Day weekend! Excellent gumbo with a wonderful stout beer, great ambience, and just an overall excellent experience! Service was awesome as well. The waitstaff did not push anything. If you like eclectic fun and a different kind of environment, this is the place to be!
