Great Coffee, Not Good Tiramisu

The atmosphere was nice but the food wasn't great. The tiramisu seemed watered down but they gave me a free cappucino!

Fun With A Crowd

Great spot for you & your friends. Lots of choices. Salads are especially good. Ask for Josh-great waiter!! Kind of loud, but who cares if you're with a group of friends? Lots of parking. Thursday nites seem the best!

AWFUL!! AWFUL!! AWFUL!!! Used to go all the time and it went downhill. Thought I'd give it a try and boy what a mistake. 30 mins to get appetizer which was followed 30 seconds later with my entree chicken and mashed potatoes. I asked the waitress why did i have to wait 30 mins to get my app and entree served at the same time. She simply said sorry and walked away.On top of it both were horrible. Manager took entree away and returned 20 mins later with dry chicken.The manager stated that the entree was a new order but it was so dry I find that hard to believe. I urge you to avoid this place at all costs.. It's worse then ever!!!!! Waitress was not worthy of a 36 dollar check, she belongs in a diner (if that)

Would Love to Go Back

My girlfriends and I went to Soyka during Miami Spice month. Daniel was out server and he did a wonderful job at taking care of us.
The food came out all at once, our glasses were continuously refilled without having to ask for it, and everything tasted good for the price.
Great atmosphere, low lighting, background music was low enough that we could still hear ourselves talk. Soyka is great for a group gathering or romantic date. We all look forward to going back for more!

My Favorite Place to Eat!

SOYKA! This is truly my favorite restaurant, hang-out and the place to meet friends. The prices are extremely reasonable, the food and service are always top notch. A very unusal atmosphere which feels more like NY than Miami and they are the pioneer in the neighborhood to which we are all thankful.
This is also one of the most diversed crowds I have ever scene. No matter who you are, no matter how you are dressed this is the place that will make you most comfortable.
I highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for great food, impectable service, unusual atmosphere and just want to go out to have a fun time without any pretense

This place gets worse with each visit. Loud obnoxious waiters telling you how little they make (is that MY problem?)Mediocre food, LOUD room (BAD acoustics) It's no surprise that the Coconut Grove location failed: they would never put up with the crap that the uninformed Morningside crowd would!

Let me go home

here's some good advice. Stay home.the noise,surly waiters,lousy food really gets on your nerves. How they can charge such prices for this ""food"" is mind bogling.

Uneven at Best

The best you can say about Soyka is that you can expect the unexpected. After a lousy meal served by a polite waiter, you return for a fairly good meal served by the devil's son with an attitude from Hell. All of this goes on while the owner is busy schmoozing with his friends! The prices are too high for such uneven service and average, at best, food. No wonder why their other location in the Grove failed.

Always enjoyable

Soyka is a wonderful place...sophisticated with a relaxed atmosphere. I love the fact that we are recognized whenever we come in, and the waiters and waitresses are the best! The owner will come over to talk to you at any time!

We are regulars at Soyka and love it, great service and great down to earth food...(except the Meat Loaf, it's OK) everything else is great for the value!!! A little bit of everything for everyone...
Best Martini's in Miami and good ambiance...

better for lunch..

If the mark of a good restaurant is consistency, then Im afraid Soyk is not good. Sandwiches and Burgers are good, but some of the entrees have missed their mark. Service has ranged from excellent to ""I'm doing you a favor by waiting on you"" from surly staff. Turkey club was ordered butTurkey burger was delievered (and returned with much attitude from waiter"".
Good location in an up and coming area. Serviceable food, but nothing to write home about. Suburbans love it, as they feel they are being cool by eating there. You can do better.

a good pit-stop before the Des. District

Don't go out of your way for this one, but the desserts and cocktails make it a worthwhile meeting place before hitting the beach or the Design District for the night. The BBQ chicken pizza was a little more than I-- and most, I'm sure--could handle. More often than not entrees seem better on paper than on your palate, which is a great reason to skip the meal and go straight to dessert. The dining room offers seats good and bad (i.e. stay away from the kitchen if you have anything to say to your friends) and on a crowded night it can be overwhelming. A nice try by the notable SoFla restaurateur, but somewhat of a let down.

Not just a dining experience

Anyone whos tired of miami dining and is in need of good food and a great dining experience, must come to Soyka. After driving through a neighborhood which could rival any urban ghetto, you reach an attractive sort of oasis. The decor is hip and you makes you feel like you are back in style. The sesame seared salmon is absolutely addictive and the wine selection is great. I will definetely go back with out of town friends. Soyka encompasses everything good and cool about Miami.

Comfort Food at its best

Go there when you are tired of regular restaurant food and feel like having something Grandma would have made - Meatloaf, Grilled Chicken with Veggies or a French Onion Soup big enough that it could be a main course.
The restaurant bar is also great to have a drink before dinner.

inimitably unpredictable...

The most consistently uneven dining experience one could imagine. from long waits, to useless rude waitstaff, wonderful tables, to fabulous attentive helpful service. The food is good and well presented. But there are just about as many seating areas to lend diversity to the ambience. Maybe its the large dining room.
