Soma in Beverly
We just got back from dinner at Soma and it was horrible. I have been in the industry on and off for about 13 years now and a foodie. But I have to say this was one of the worst meals I have had in a long time. The place was a ghost town inside yet no one was at the door to greet us. We stood there for a little bit. Finally the bartender came around the bar and was about to seat us but a waitress came around.
I thought the menu was going to be a fusion of Caribbean and american but it seemed to be more about Swiss chard being in every dish and very limited and some what over priced for the area. I mean I could be wrong, it was my first time in Beverly but 23-30 an entree seems a little pricey for the area. If we were in downtown Boston or Cambridge, no problem, for sure but some random place on the North Shore...
I ordered the winter veg soup (it was a beet based soup which was not labeled in the menu and was luke warm with spars veggies) and than I tried the Pork dish. My better half had the fish special with lobster truffled ravs but said that the celery root puree over powered the whole dish and couldn't taste anything else.
I really never bash places like this but it wasn't worth the 75 dollar check and service was bad as well. So please don't go!! It's not worth it at all!
