Everyone is always raving about Souen so I figured I had to try it. I thought the atmosphere was absolutely beautiful and inviting, but I wasn't impressed with the food. In fact, I was disappointed with my meal, but perhaps that was because based on friends' experiences, I was expecting it to be the best meal I've ever have.
My friend and I sat upstairs, right at the gate that overlooks the main floor. I absolutely loved this location, as it was like an indoor balcony, allowing us to see everything that was going on both upstairs and downstairs, while not freezing outside. :) This place is cute, cozy, and inviting, and I'm hoping that I just happened to have a super average meal here. I do plan on returning.
