Diner Reviews
  • "Overall the restaurant was very good. The food was tasty and service was very good. The only con is that we thought the prices were a bit high for the type of restaurant. The prices are the only thing that would keep me from returning to the restaurant anytime soon."

  • "The food was great! I had a gift card as a gift, and went on a Saturday.Made reservations through open table reserved a 8:45 time. Time was a little late to eat but turned out okay! Husband ordered a shrimp s campi . Which he thought was a little tasteless. I had the beef Wellington with spinach and wild rice which was great! Also had a delicious salad with green apples and greens with different cheeses Which was GREAT! Wine and dessert, raspberry sorbet to end the night! Server was really nice and happy personalit, which I liked! Wish I could remember her name! But everything was GREAT! WOULD GO AGAIN! :)"

  • "Extremely loud, could barely hear other people at our table. The salmon that was ordered by a few at our table was fair at best. Waited exceptionally long for dinner to be served."

  • "Great dinner. Good service. Only issue would be the lighting. the spot light at every table was just too much. Couple dimmer clicks and the experience would have been perfect."

  • "My boyfriend and I were craving a good steak, but all the steakhouses in Boston were too expensive for a casual dinner. We went to Sofia's and were pleasantly surprised! I got the bolognese and my boyfriend get the prime rib. Both entrees were incredible. They were almost as good as those at a 5 star eatery, but the portions were much larger and cheaper. The service was that of a 5 star restaurant as well (they even wiped our crumbs off between meals) except the dress code was casual (we wore jeans and nice shirts), which we loved. We highly recommend this place and will definitely be coming back!"

  • "Made a reservation at 5pm for 9pm. Got there and I was told it was going to be a min to set up our table. 25 minutes went by before we were seated at this small table in a small room with 5 other tables, wasn't to bad. Asked for a drink menu and was told there wasn't one, but there was a large full bar in the other room. Pretty decent menu, prices were reasonable, and the food was great with pretty good portions. Desert was limited and when I ordered they didn't have it. All in all great food, service ok , drinks ehh!, crowded and noise was mellow."

  • "Met my 4 girlfriends there for Restaurant Week dinner. The atmosphere and waitstaff was great!! Very welcomeing and attentive. We all had expresso Martinis that were out of this world, and last but not least the food was outstanding!! We were all very happy and satisfied with our experience. I would definitely recommend going there."

  • "We found Sofia's to be perfect. The food was delicious; the baked oysters were the best we've ever had. The waitress was pleasant, and the interval between the courses was just right. A great find, and we'll be back!"

  • "Parking was a problem - the lot was full and there were no spaces in the street. There is an adjacent lot but there are signs that say only patrons of another restaurant can park there, or you are subject to tow. I had a great aragula salad (pricey at $12), and my dessert (cheesecake) was excellent. The sirloin steak was tough and tasteless. Way too much money for the quality of the food - and very noisy! I'd go to Capital Grill for the same price and much better food and service."

  • "Nice vibe and lighting,especially the dining areas. There seem to be three dining areas,a bar and a cozy spot near the fireplace. All looked inviting. Service was good and the place was full. It was restaurant week and the special was a nice deal and inviting enough to try the restaurant. The crab cake was just ok. Salad looked good. Went there with a colleague and we both had the 14 oz sirloin with fries which was tasty. I prefer a filet though. Desserts wee cookies warmed, with ice cream and the cheescake. Cheescake was great! Cookies more for a young diner. The red wine selection was nice. I do drink both white and red and the Chardonnay and other whites were not great. Better whites for price point.

  • "This place never fails to please. Our waiter, Carlos, was the most attentive without being too much. Food was delicious in all courses. Great selection of which to choose from. Always quiet which is not often found. Beautiful decor, don't be fooled by the outside appearance. Our new favorite place to go for Italian food."

  • "Though we had a reservation for 8:45 we were not seated until nearly 9:30 and the host staff were not very helpful about times. We had a drink at the bar, which was very busy and energetic. Once we were seated I could tell that our waitress was a gem. She was very friendly and attentive and gave recommendations on the dessert. The portions were large and we ended up bringing nearly all of our entrees and the desserts home. I would definitely go back with my sisters for a drink and the best cheesecake I've ever had."

  • "We recently moved to the area and really wanted to try a local place. For a Friday night, the restaurant was pretty packed.. the parking lot had NO spots. We ended up having to park on a residential street, which was fine as long as we didn't get towed (we didn't!). We came for the restaurant week menu and it was SO delicious! Everything was cooked to perfection. The kitchen was probably swamped though because the wait between our appetizers and entrees took a lot longer than I've experienced. Either way, the food was great and we had a fabulous experience! In the past, the restaurants I went to for restaurant week would make you eat all the food and not let you take anything home. This place asked if I wanted to take my dessert home! :)"

  • "All four of us enjoyed the food and wine. Our only complaint was it was very noisy we had a hard time to carry on a conversation."

  • "This restaurant was wonderful. The italian steakhouse classifaction caught my taste buds right away and we had to try it. The food was outstanding, the pricing was right in line with where I thought it would be and the service was incredible. It was not too loud, actually quite quiet, the lighting was enough to see and read everything but still dim enough to set a tone. I recomend this restaurant to all!"

  • "This was our first time dining at Sofia which was recommended by my Mom. My husband and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary & were told to request the "wine room" with the fireplace. When making our reservation, I requested the "wine room" as well as it being our anniversary and we were very impressed when we arrived as to how attentive & welcoming the hostess as well as our server was as soon as we walked in the door. It was awesome and made our evening even more enjoyable!! We loved the wine room as well as our 3 course meal! And the complimentary glasses of champagne! Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable. We have added Sofia's to our restaurant list!"
