We requested the 18-course meal customized by chef Andy and had the most amazing experience!! There wasn’t a single plate we didn’t love!! Andy is so cool and nice too!! A MUST TRY.
We all did the chef's tasting, and each of the dishes were good, but the unanimous opinion of the table was that nothing was spectacular. Considering the bill was $500 for three of us (not including drinks or tip), we expected great. The place was also dead and the service was just so-so. Overall, we just expected more for the price.
Incredible food. Omakase was top notch
We need 6 stats’s. We had the chefs choice meal and they blew us away. The staff was friendly and informed.. we highly recommend
Absolutely stunning presentations and creative ingredients!
The food was good, but very expensive...
This was my second visit and once again it was an enjoyable and memorable dining experience! Great sushi and great service.
Just okay. Not necessarily worth the price, in my opinion. Nothing to write home about.
Delicious and creative menu. Great service!
Very good food
Service was excellent
Deliscious food. Best sushi I've ever had. The owner came to our table to say hello and he was a very nice, humble man with an amazing passion for sushi. Such an amazing experience I'd recommend. It to anyone who wants a wonderful, quiet environment to celebrate something especially a date or anniversary.
This was our second visit to Soto. We're relatively new to Austin and love sushi, so we've been on the hunt for a go-to sushi restaurant. The sushi at Soto is good, but we felt the prices were very inflated compared to what we're used to for similar-to-better quality in Chicago. We also had some issues with the overall service at Soto. During our first visit, we decided to add one more roll to our order at the end of our meal and waited 45 minutes for it to arrive. There was also a mix-up with our check where our waitress ran my card against the wrong tab. We decided to give Soto a second chance because we did enjoy the food. This time, I found a piece of hard plastic in my miso soup. When I told our server, she brought me a new soup and said the manager would be coming out to apologize. The manager never came to speak to us, and instead the restaurant comped our two $4 miso soups. I would expect a restaurant charging such high prices to do more than comp two soups in this type of situation. Long story short, the food & service don't deliver for the prices Soto charges and we will not be returning here.
Such an amazing dinner! All the fish was extremely fresh and Chef Andy created some very unique plates for us. I can't wait to go back!
Great food, great service! Will be back!! Perfect place to go before seeing a movie at Alamo
Server did a poor job at explaining the menu and the items in it (he knew it was our first time there) . The service was very slow. It took a long time for us to get drinks and simple appetizers . Also one of the specialty we wanted to try was not available.
We ordered the following items:
A5 wagyu appetizer (highly doubt it was A5 graded)
2 specialty rolls (Tuna was ok. Wagyu was ok)
Specialty drinks. Earth and Honey (Good drink but it took 20 min to get it)
One of the best sushi happy hours I've seen! Can't wait to come back
This is one of our new fav sushi spots! We always try and sit at the sushi counter. Definitely recommend
Food taste was very good, but we left hungry after spending $177!!
Dinner at Soto was one of the best dining experience I’ve had in Austin! The server was attentive without being intrusive. The food was flavorful and the presentations were thoughtful. The Anago served at Soto is absolutely the best eel I’ve ever had. In fact, everything we ordered was delicious and delightful.
Very small plates and very expensive. My wife and I spent $300 on food and 2 drinks and left hungry. Nothing special.
Better than uchi
AMAZING!!!! Have been going to Soto in Cedar Park since it opened but Chef Andy really upped his game with this place...has a totally cool Austin vibe and the food is out of this world. A must try if your in the mood for sushi!
Very creative sushi plates.
We are devotees of the Lakeline Soto and ecstatic to find that this Soto is just as delightful. Every dish is a creation - with complex flavors that are nonetheless approachable. And addictive. Come to Soto for a date night to impress... or on any random weeknight because you deserve this level of food. They've just launched a new happy hour so if you're dipping your toe in the proverbial sushi scene, that's a great way to try some of their most popular items.
Soto is expensive, but really good! Everything was fresh, service was fast and drinks were great.
My husband and I wanted to try something new and found this place as suggested by Eater Austin as one of the hottest restaurants for May. I’ve known about Soto as I had seen great reviews about their first location in Cedar Park/Lakeline. We never went to that one as it was a bit too far of a drive for us. They always have had great reviews and I was happy to learn that I didn't have to drive to Lakeline to try this place. Anyway, we easily made a reservation on Open Table.
When we arrived, it was quiet and we immediately got a table at the counter. A few of the sushi chefs welcomed us and offered their help. Super attentive. The service staff was equally impressive and overall Soto has a great atmosphere.
We ordered wine from one of their 3 drink menus. Their wine menu was limited but their sake menu was extensive. We did not have any of their specialty cocktails but those looked interesting. Wine pours were a little small but that just falls in line with their portion sizes.
The menu overall is good and has variety but it was expensive for what you actually got as well as it’s limited. The drink menus definitely are bigger than the food menu. The food that we did get was good, fresh and unique combos but just not worth the money. I’m ok with paying for sushi but with small portions and smaller wine pours, the value is just not there yet.
I’m sure we will give this place another try but just not sure how soon we will be back.
Super good. Staff attentive.
Went for a birthday dinner and it was delish, no complaints.
Chef Andy and staff do an amazing job. Highly educated servers that really take time to describe every dish. When doing the tasting menu that’s a lot of courses, so it’s great that they do such a great job of explaining what you are getting. I love everything about the Omakase menus is fabulous one of the best dining experiences in Austin. Each time I come back for it, they are very flexible with letting me try something I haven’t had yet. However there are some dishes that I will want every time. The mid-fatty and fatty toro back to back is just awesome. It just melts in your mouth. Seriously if you are going to eat here just do the feasting menu and thank me later.
Soto has been my favorite Japanese restaurant in Texas since it opened near Lakeline Mall. I cannot travel to Austin and not say hi to chef Andy. This was my first visit to his South Lamar location and I was not disappointed. Same exceptional culinary art! Can't wait for my next visit.
Incredible! Will be back next month for more when I'm in town!
Soto was great! The presentation of the food is phenomenal. I wouldn't say the sushi is the best in Austin, but it's definitely very good. The ambiance is great too-- great for a special occasion or date night, and an awesome happy hour menu! The waiter was very personable and funny, and gave honest recommendations, which we very much appreciated. It was a great experience!
Soto South is amazing. Chef Andy is a master of his art. Staff are required to be excellent, and they are. They are very friendly, cool people with good knowledge of the menu. The sushi chefs are always collaborating and working with very fine products. Some products are once in a lifetime at Soto. Every dinner you have there will be the best dinner ever. The Chef keeps innovating and providing customers with unique presentations every single time. He has creative uses of tobiko, uni pasta, and the freshest fish and scallops available.
Wonderful dinner at Soto. It was all delicious! Brett was our server and was super knowledge and friendly. Try the prawns!
Hands down best sushi in Austin!! Tasting menu was incredible and chef could not be nicer. Missing out if you do not eat here!
Rolls were imaginative but pricey! My husband ordered sushi ala carte and instead of getting 1 piece of each, server assumed he ordered 2 instead of 1 thereby doubling our total bill. Maybe the assumption was always order 2 pieces? If it was, not mentioned anywhere. Found this practice shady.
Amazing sushi. Amazing service! Go here
I have been to a handful of sushi restaurants in and around Austin. I have been to Uchi and I would put the quality of sushi at Soto equal with a more relaxed atmosphere. I had the omakase and was very happy with the many flavors of the 18 courses. I highly recommend Soto to anybody that likes really good sushi without the pretentious atmosphere.
Waiter was great and very knowledgeable, explained the menu very well and gave great suggestions. Food was excellent, and the cocktail menu did not disappoint.
My fiancé and I dined in this week and had a wonderful experience. Valet parking was directly outside making it easy to park,and the host was pleasant. Our waitress was knowledgeable of the menu and very helpful with our culinary tour of the restaurant. The head chef/ owner greeted us mid meal and prepared a special course for us.
