Diner Reviews
  • "The food here is always great and so is the service. The staff really make you feel important when you're there."

  • "Generous portions and great seasoning. Wine selection very good. My favorite was the crabcake appetizer and swordfish entrée. We saved the cannoli for the next night at home and it hit the spot! Nice portions for the fixed price menu on Thursday night. Our first time here, but we'll be back!"

  • "Open table reservations were easy, requested specific location and that it was my wife's birthday so dessert came with a candle and birthday wishes. Dennis our server did an outstanding job from start to finish. Food was excellent and dessert even better...i recommend the mignon and the cheesecake!"

  • "The restaurant, food overall were excellent. The place is clean and the food service was very good. The Bar service was terrible. The bar was not busy but the short bald bartender left me and my wife sitting there for 10 minutes waiting to order a drink. He was to busy talking then doing his job. I spent 15 dollars for 2 drinks, hope he enjoyed his 50 cent tip and learned a little lesson. Other then the bartender it was a great place."

  • "We waited a bit longer than usual with an Open Table reservation. Parking difficult since they stopped valet parking. Sat at a round table outside the main room which was good for our group of 6, also less noisy. Food was very good as usual and service was accommodating and pleasant. For our group, was a pleasant meal and evening"

  • "We visited Sofia's for Father's Day. It was our first time and we were very happy with the food and service. We had a few food allergies in our group and our waiter was excellent at providing us with info on which dishes were safe in regards to avoiding peanuts and gluten. Everyone was thrilled with their choices. Our meals were delicious and beautifully displayed. The atmosphere was quiet and the service was fantastic. We couldn't have asked for a better experience."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Way too noisy. When the server has to bend down to get his.her lips close to the diner's ear in order to be heard, the place is too loud. One cannot have a conversation with one's dining partner -- much less hearing a guest sitting across the table. Food good (if pricey); ambience "energetic"???...let's be real and call it LOUD."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "good service everytime. Good soup of the day ( Italian wedding ). Steamed mussels is too light this time"

  • "After driving by the restaurant for the past 5 years it never occurred to me what I was missing out on! The food was excellent and the steak was cooked perfectly. Sofia's has been added to our go to places to eat."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "We have been meaning to check out Sofia's for a long time now but never found our way there. It is not your everyday dinner place so we went for my boyfriend's birthday. Service was great and the steaks were fantastic. A little pricey but it is worth it for a special occasion. I can see us returning."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "Everything was good except the Delmonico aged ?? ( very tough) steak was very over cooked and hard to cut so had to send back to get t medium as ordered! So it was annoying we could not all eat together as we had to wait for the steak to cook again. However we were compensated one dessert for the inconvenience but not worth it as we were celebrating a birthday for the person who redrew the steak. The waitress was very nice as it was not her fault so she was compensated fairly as always !"
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "As soon as you enter Sophia's, you are warmly greeted like an old friend. Everyone from the bartenders to the waitresses, you knew you made the right decision for dinner. We both had the New York Sirloin and it was done to perfection. The wine choices were wonderful. I would definitely highly recommend this restaurant."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Seated promptly a good sign to start. Good food, pasta cooked al dente, prime rib was a large portion cooked exactly the way we wanted it. Service was attentive and professional. Overall, a very good experience."

    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "This is a great place to dine. It may not be the Capital Grill, but a can't miss. The combination of elegant decor, great service, quality foods and tasty cooking made my visit a success. My wife and I dined for our anniversary. When I made the on-line reservation, I wrote in the comments section it was our anniversary. When we were first seated, our server brought us complimentary glasses of champagne and wished us a happy anniversary. I couldn't believe they actually read the reservation's comments section. The area of town may not be well known, but don't deny yourself a fine dinning experience."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Sofia's is an excellent steakhouse. We rate the quality of the steaks with the best ones in Boston. The great thing about them is that you don't have to order and pay for your sides. Each dish already comes with a starch and a vegetable. So you can enjoy a great steak and save the $10-20 that you would pay elsewhere."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "We eat at Sofia's quite often and we have never had a bad meal! The crab cakes are amazing, pretty much anything you order is excellent and always cooked perfectly!"
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Very accommodating when we changes our reservation to 7:30pm. The waitress was great! She surprised my boyfriend with an anniversary dessert and was very friendly! Food was amazing (like the first time we came) but a little on the expensive side. "
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "Most everything was excellent with the exception of the noise level. Nothing to buffer the noise level and we literally had to shout to hear each other at a table for three. Food excellent, service okay, drinks great, presentation excellent, entrees generous. Selected 5 stars for ambience which is based on amenities. Ambience at full throttle is very loud."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "I was very happy with my dinner at Sophia's- the food was great, nice wine list and the atmosphere was pleasant. I decided to try the prixe fixe menu and I was amazed at the portion size and quality. Our waiter was very attentive. I would definitely return."

  • "We have been there since it first opened and it is our favorite upscale restaurant .The quality of the food, its preparation, service and ambiance iare wonderful and the extensive menu is at a moderate price level.It is a neighborhood gem and a great dining experience for others in the extended territory. "

  • "We just moved to the neighborhood and decided to go to Sophia for our anniversary dinner. The food was delicious, the service was fantastic, and they even gave us complimentary champagne to toast our anniversary! We are so happy to have a gem so close, but would definitely travel across the city to go here again. There were several large parties at the restaurant as well, so it is set-up nicely to host bigger groups. We will definitely be going back for many celebrations!"

  • "The food and the service at Sofias is excellent. I will certainly be returning."

  • "We held a birthday celebration @ Sofia's. The food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. Calamari was outstanding as were all the entrees that were ordered. Wines were very good. Desserts were a gift to the palate. Service was a bit slow, but we attribute that to the restaurant being very busy. The quality of the food, the ambience, and the value, will make us regulars at Sofia's. It is, indeed, a neighborhood "gem"."
