Sofia Italian Steakhouse
Excellent RestaurantWent to Sofia's for Father's Day dinner. We were seated in a private room which eliminated much of the noise in th main dinning area. Renee, our waitress was excellent. Very attentive and great personality. Food was excellent and prices were reasonable. Overall my Father rated it as one of his best Father's Day Dinners!6/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat serviceWe had great service and great food! Very nice layout and décor. Our server was very accommodating despite two in our large group showing up an hour late. She never rushed us. She served our appetizers and salads but held putting in our meal order until we wanted. We ended up waiting for our whole group to be present and we never had a feeling there was a problem with our lengthy stay.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMPrix Fix MealsSofia's Specials on Monday-Thursday are a great value. The food is typically very good and the service is excellent.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMLived up to reviewReview was right on and we were pleasantly surprised with the ambience, service and food quality.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMLadies night dinnerWhile I no longer eat steak, the seafood here is quite good. My friends and I wanted to have dinner and enjoy a quiet atmosphere and great food. This place has a good value, not just the weeknight 3-course meals but the steak prices are reasonable as well.
Loved the shrimp and calamari dishes. Somehow we made it to dessert, but did not finish the cheesecake or tiramisu. The steak that my two friends had was, apparently, excellent. Always a pleasure at Sofia's.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappointedThis is my favorite place and I have not been disappointed. Will definately go back!6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMMORE THAN A STEAKHOUSEI WAS VERY HAPPY WITH THE ONLINE RESERVATION SERVICE. WHEN WE HAD TO MAKE A CHANGE I WAS ABLE TO CHANGE THE RESERVATIONS WITHOUT ANY TROUBLE. THE STAFF WAS VERY FRIENDLY AS SOON AS YOU ARRIVE AND WE WERE SEATED PROMPTLY. WE HADN'T SEEN OUR FRIENDS IN QUITE A WHILE AND THE SERVING STAFF GAVE US AMPLE TIME TO "CATCH UP" BEFORE WE ORDERED. THE FOOD WAS EXCELLENT AND SERVED IN A TIMELY MANNER.
WE MAKE COMING TO SOFIA'S OUR MEETING PLACE WHENEVER WE COME UP TO BOSTON.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMreally nice!Love this place. Fabulous ambience. Food is great. And there are bargains to be had with the prix fix menus. Mon/Tues has a $20 3-course menu which includes 2 of my favorites: eggplant rollatini for an appetizer and swordfish entrée. The Wed/Thu prix fix menu is $25 and includes the following wonderful options: apps: fried calamari or crab cakes, lamb chops with potatoes au gratin, and cannolis for dessert. There are many other options, these are just my personal favorites. The full menu has many great choices including aged steaks.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent.Noise levelFood was excellent.Noise level very high could barely carry on a conversation.Would suggest you ask to be seated in one of two closed off areas.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWill returnVery good dining Great wine list Service was good, Waitress helped with a surprise for our guest but wish they would revisit the table more frequent to check if wee need anything6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat TiramisuI had an amazing time here. The waitress Paula i believe was kind. I was celebrating my Mom's Birthday and it was perfect!
Great food, great prices, and the dessert was amazing! that Tiramisu made me want to stay there all night and lick my plate!5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent local resturantHad an early dinner here with my wife. Service was excellent from start to finish. Steak was cooked perfectly - medium well. My wife had the scallops which were cook just right, not overdone as some restaurants do. The chocolate molten lava cake was a great choice to top off this meal. We will certainly make plans to come back.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThis location is very beautifulThis location is very beautiful and the wait staff is very polite. Our server was professional, timely, well informed on the menu and gave us complimentary glasses of Champaign for our anniversary. The food was not bad, but not worth the high price. One major complaint was the appetizer. The cheese filled meatballs were microwaved. Again, for the prices this location charges, all food should be fresh and tasty.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time atThis was our first time at Sofia's. It was fabulous - the table was perfect, the service was impeccable, and the food was spectacular. We had a party of eight, and everyone loved it! We will definitely be back!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a reservation for aWe had a reservation for a Graduation Celebration for 6 which turned into 8! The restaurant handled our situation with grace! They had been swamped an hour earlier with other reservations from the same Graduation that had arrived early with expectations of being seated. We were on time for our reservation...just too many people.
Our server, Jilian, was outstanding! She met every accomodation with grace,efficiency, and a great attitude and smile!
We've have eaten here before and had good meals and service, however, under pressure this time was certainly outstanding!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMService detioratedThe service was great for the initial part of the meal. Our waitstaff was very focused and observant of our needs. As the meal progressed our primary server appears to have been distracted, adn clearly appeared to be frazzled in attempting to even a simple requests for coffee. Not sure what happened, but that did take away from the experience. I would still heartily recommend Sofias5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMEveryone in our party of 6Everyone in our party of 6 really enjoyed themselves! We had a great waiter, service was exceptional and the food was PERFECT!!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThoughtful attention to every detaiWe came there for our anniversary. First visit based on a friends recommendation. A great choice. From the before dinner cocktail, appetizers, main course and dessert (along with a surprise champagne cocktail) from waitress... Will definitely put it on our list of great dining experiences. Will return again for sure. Service was also very good, with the just the right amount of attention, and knowing just when to come by table.
Menu has a very diverse choice of entres as well as appetizer, salads, along with extras. And desserts. So good, one will need at least two or three passes before making a difficult choice of selections.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was perfect, I especallyFood was perfect, I especally love the arrancini and filet, (which is cooked perfectly).5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightfully surprised~We had a fantastic meal~ drinks, service, food the whole package. Was very pleased with everything and will definitely return5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFrequent FlyerI have been to Sofia's quite a few times and have never been disappointed. The staff is helpful and courteous, the food is delicious and the décor is quite nice. WE recently went for Mother's Day and all steaks were cooked to perfect mediums! Quite the accomplishment. It rivals Capital Grille in my mind, has a better selection of other foods and you get your potato and vegetable which is key!
We love it here.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPrix fixe menu is a greatPrix fixe menu is a great value and the food is always delicious.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMfood and atmposphere excellent

]5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Deal AroundYou can't beat the $20 three course meal offered on Monday night. The swordfish was large enough to enjoy for lunch the next day.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were a party of six celebratingWe were a party of six celebrating a college graduation. Two people are vegetarians and everyone raved about the food and service. We will definitely make Sophia"s a regular spot,5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat deal on Mon and Tues!The three course dinner special for $20 is the best deal in town. The four of us spent $80 on our meals, and $90. on wine! But after all, isn't that the way it's supposed to be? Great food and service AND a great price! Try it you'll like it.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food excellent serviceVery good food excellent service perfect night out4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGood balance!Strikes a very good balance in food quality, ambiance and price points. Service was pleasant and efficient. Have been there several times and will continue to return. Only one word of advice, steak temperature are come out on the high side, meaning a medium steak will tend to come out med- well . A med- rare steak will come out medium.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFive of us enjoyed Sofia,Five of us enjoyed Sofia, which I patronize once every few months. The food is consistent but the service this evening was a little confused as w had 2 servers who did not seem to communicate well with one another. Overall, the restaurant iis very good.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have eaten here twice andWe have eaten here twice and had a great meal both times with very good service. The berry and custard dessert is perfect for the end of your meal. Our only complaint is the lack of parking. We are not from the area and if lot is full, we don't know where else to park.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is my favorite restaurantThis is my favorite restaurant and I will keep coming back. There are many upscale restaurants with snoppy wait staff and expensive bills at the end in the city, but while Sofia is on par with the quality of food and ambiance, the wait staff are much more friendly and price here cannot be beaten. Love the place!4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful again!We are frequent patrons of Sophia's Italian Steakhouse simply because each visit has exceeded our expectations. The staff is very professional, the service excellent, and the food is always delicious. Saturday evenings are quite popular so we opt for Sundays sometimes for a quieter dining experience. We have introduced several friends and family members to this establishment and they have all continued to patronize them as well. Sophia's has been a welcome addition to West Roxbury.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMMeal was excellent and serviceMeal was excellent and service was outstanding. Great vibe to the place but really loud. difficult for conversations.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat surprise. We had neverGreat surprise. We had never been before and had no idea what to expect. Everything was delicious; the wine, all 4 meals and the waitress was just the right attentive. A lovely evening.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious and worth the moneySofia's was sooooo good. This was my third or fourth time here and it did not disappoint. I went for restaurant week and this was the best bang for my money after visiting a couple of other restaurants. The portions for the appetizer, entree and dessert are so huge and flavorful! I will definitely be going back to Sofia's when restaurant week comes around again.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant week menu wasThe restaurant week menu was excellent. Our server Jerry was great. We will definitely be back.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've been there a coupleWe've been there a couple of times and have always enjoyed the food and the experience.
Never had to wait and the wait staff was very knowledgable about the menu and wine. Will continue to go back.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is the third time I haveThis is the third time I have had dinner there and on each occasion the food has been very good and the service has been excellent, very attentive without being pushy. In terms of the menu, it is not a foodie haven but a good place to go for an expansive Italian/American menu,a good (and sometimes great) meal and terrific service (both in the kitchen and from the wait staff). And in an overall comparison within the Boston city limits, the prices are very reasonable - especially given the size of the portions.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience all-aroundOverall a great experience. Very good food and service at a reasonable price without being too far outside Boston (and free valet parking too!). They were about 10 minutes late seating us, compared to our reservation time, but the restaurant does have a nice lounge/bar area that we could wait at so it wasn't so bad. Everyone in our 8-person party enjoyed their food. The ambiance was about what I'd expect - not too cramped, dim lighting, a bit on the loud side (but not overly loud for such a large restaurant). I would go back.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat portion appetizers andGreat portion appetizers and desserts, all flavorful! great for the price. The food and service were great, I would definitely recommend this restaurant and come back!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMNicer Place for Special OccassionsOverall an excellent experiece. Food was delicous, selection of wines was good, desserts and after dinner drinks totally unnecessary (diet wise) but we indulged nevertheless and thoroughly enjoed. Nice place for special occasions3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMMy seared scallops were delicious.My seared scallops were delicious. Waiter was very helpful. Prices were reasonable.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMYum!The calamari was nothing like I have ever had before, I am looking forward to going back and getting it again.

You can choose from the regular menu or the tapas menu which is served there. The bartenders and servers are all very helpful and friendly.
If we have a larger group we sit in the dining room and have the same wonderful experience. The food is consistently wonderful. We have never been disappointed.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is excellent, no matterFood is excellent, no matter what you choose. The restaurant honored our request to sit near the fireplace. We loved the quiet ambiance of the room and they even sent a special treat for dessert for our friend's birthday.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMI surprised myself choosing this onRecently visited the restaurant and personally found the ambiance to be superb. I had a fettuccine dish which was very good. The pasta was fresh, the vegetables were as well and the seafood was well flavored in wine sauce. Overall, I would certain visit this restaurant again.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWent as a party of three forWent as a party of three for restaurant week and to celebrate a birthday and was pleasantly surprised. Each of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Nice atmosphere, friendly waitstaff and excellent food. We had the Scallops with fettuccine, Seafood Fra Diavolo with Lobster and 14 oz Sirloin Steak. Appetizers were equally as good - Crabcakes, salad and Harvest Ravioli.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMReservation was for 6:45pm,Reservation was for 6:45pm, we waited over an hour for table of 4. Food overall was great. We ended the evening @ past 10pm. I think its ridiculous to have to take this long...3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe lunch during restaurantThe lunch during restaurant week is a great deal. It's like the Mon/Tues prix fix options. I had shrimp cocktail (5 very large and very good shrimp), Chicken saltimbocca over fettuccine (I took half home for later), and cannolis (2 full size ones, so I took one home for later). Everything was great. What a deal! And I love the atmosphere here. Dark wood, multi room feel, yet open. The fireplace/wine room would be great for a group or small function.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
