Sophia's Restaurant and Tapas reviews from OpenTable diners

    We searched for Italian restaurants in Alpharetta area on Open Table and found this one. The menu is excellent with additional specials. Everything from the bread, wine, appetizers to dessert was excellent quality and delicious. We made a reservation for 7:00 and were seated when we arrived. Wait staff was attentive. We will definitely take some friends and go again. They have space to accommodate large parties as well.

    We had a great night. The food was delicious and the waiter was so helpful. I had the chicken cactorie which had the chicken falling off the bone tender. My husband had the salmons,also great. But the best was the cod picatta . We will be back. They have a private room fir small or large parties.

    Food is always great at Sophia's and we were seated promptly having a reservation. Since we booked a table for 2 for New Year's eve, it seemed like extra tables had been added and we felt very cramped. Server was attentive and we enjoyed our dinner. Next time, we will go back not on a Holiday.

    Apparently New Years Eve is not the best night to go try out a new restaurant, but it turned out okay. The food was good, we had a great waiter, but the manager was really wigged out and had a hard time when we told her we did not want a table in the back right by the kitchen doors (in spite of our reservation being early enough we would be gone before the crush hit.). Bacon wrapped dates and the bruschetta were outstanding!

    The highlight of my visit was the unforgettable attention to the service. From all the restaurants I have visited, I don't recall my table leaving as happy with the way we were treated. Our waiter, Dewitt was friendly and professional, informed us of any anticipated delays, made excellent recommendations throughout the night and even shared a toast with us prior to our leaving. What made the night even better was that the food was also very good. The bread with the olive oil and the best balsamic glazing I've tasted was a great start. The lamb osso bucca, meatball rollitini, special fish and dessert tasted great. The restaurant looks classy and well decorated with comfortable seating. Highly recommended to at least visit once.

    Made a 6:30 pm reservation through open table Thursday. Arrived at 6:30 and seated immediately. Only 2 other tables occupied when we arrived. Waited 11 minutes but never saw a waiter. Four additional groups of people were seated at different tables when I noticed a waiter arrived at the LAST table that was seated and introduced himself as "I'm Chris and I'm the only waiter here tonight." No need for us to cause a scene. We'll come back another night when they have enough wait staff. Was disappointed in the service we never received so we ended up eating pizza next door. Maybe we'll return another time when we can get served at a more timely manner. Never got to taste if the food is still wonderful but the service was not.

    Starters we got the bacon wrapped dates which were ok, nothing special, but we only got 5 of them. Main dishes Scallops were incredibly fishy tasting and my old fashion tasted like water. My wife liked her chicken and pasta dish. Cost us $77 with 2 aps, 2 entries and 1 drink. Seemed way over priced. Will not be going back.

    Chose this place based on Open Table reviews while traveling on business, no regrets!! The service was friendly and attentive, the food was amazing and the outdoor patio seating was comfortable and relaxing. My colleague and I were shocked at the cool presentation for the bruschetta. The pork braciole was delicious and the taste of Sophia's was awesome too!

    Sophia's has become one of our favorite Roswell restaurants. We have yet to have a bad meal--or a bad waiter! Add the spinach salad and one of their signature meatballs to the stuffed purses for a great dinner. I'm not a big meatball fan, but Sophia's adds a special ingredient to make them very tasty! The lasagna is a big favorite of my husband. The braciole is wonderful and a great choice for the "hearty" eater. Our servers have been attentive without being intrusive and are very personable. They make you feel welcome and do all they can to make sure your dining experience is a good one. I can highly recommend this fine eating establishment., Love the special toast you're given at the end of your meal.

    Good italian selections, but some dishes lacking traditional flavors. The sausage and braciole were nicely seasoned, but not much garlic, basil or oregano noticeable in any of the dishes our party ordered, except for the pizza. Nice wine list. The service was outstanding on this slow saturday evening and the after dinner toast with our server was a nice touch.

    The food here is really good - Italian and Greek influences, beef, pork, fresh fish and vegetables, pasta, and my husband had a pork chop stuffed with pear which was AMAZING. They offer bread laced with olive oil which was so good. They welcomed my children and I was surprised to find that they had coloring books and toys available to distract and please the kids. You wouldn't expect a restaurant that looks this nice and whose food is so good (and fancy) to welcome families, but they do! The only thing I could find to criticize is that the inside rooms are a bit on the dark side - it would have been nice to have more light inside (we were there for a celebration lunch).

    The food at Sophia's is excellent. Our waitress was top-notch. She knew the menu extremely well and provided excellent service without being intrusive. This restaurant is a real winner. The restaurant was originally affiliated with Sugo's. They have kept some of the signature Sugo dishes and have added their own special touch to others. I like the ambiance at Sophia's better than Sugo's. Our waitress made us feel special -- very attentive without being intrusive. We will certainly become a regular!!

    Our party of six was very pleased with the various entrees selected which ranged from the basic -- spaghetti with meatballs (as always delicious), to the wonderful pork braciole, chicken geraci, three meat platter (sausage, meatball and lamb) and the veal chop. The artichoke pasta and chicken appetizer exceeded our expectation and we could not resist ordering the meatballs for those who were not going to have it part of their entree. We would highly recommend Sophia's.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 5/4/2013
    Our server was exceedingly friendly, and checked back frequently, but did not seem to listen. Neither did the owner. We ordered the bruschetta which came hot with one single cooked tomato and roasted garlic. This change from typical bruschetta should have been disclosed in the menu or otherwise explained. The mussels also had large chunks of tomatoes and anchovies, which was also jarring. My friend ordered coffee, and had to remind the server three times. My husband's chicken parmesan was described as being accompanied by linguine, but came with spaghetti. When he complained, the owner came over to explain that she is ordering a lot of imported pasts, which explains nothing; neither did she adjust the bill.

    Sophia's is Fantastic. Great for the date night, does super with kids. Marian, there has coloring books, comes around and talks with the kids, its a great place but does no seem anywhere near a kid place for the adults And the food can not be beat. We have been there many times and always come away even more in love with the place.
