    It is too loud — much too loud even outside — and the service was a little slow.

    We booked this to celebrate my birthday (and left a note specifying that — usually restaurants will give you a dessert or drink, or at least say happy birthday — but no). I chose standard seating when I made the reservation (not outside) and we were seated outside right next to the band, who were so loud. We asked the hostess to move us inside, and she moved us to another table outside, just further from the music. The inside of the restaurant was empty. Our server came 3 times the whole meal, once to introduce himself, once to take our order (20 minutes later), and once to deliver the wrong beer to my husband. The managers both came to try and rectify that—got him the correct beer after about 5 minutes. Our food came before his drink arrived. I also asked for a cocktail with all the ingredients the same but just swap the tequila for vodka and they said the cocktails were made by the batch so no special requests could be accommodated. The cocktail I ended up getting (with rum and pineapple juice) was so full of ice and tasted like straight juice. My pasta (the spicy rigatoni) was decent, but not worth the cost. My husband ate two bites of his bolognese because it was so bland. Fortunately the manager did notice this and comped it for us, asking for feedback. We were so disappointed because we saw great reviews! Maybe it was just a bad night, but we couldn’t wait to get out of there.

    The restaurant is beautiful and vibrant. Was a bit too loud for my taste but it was Friday night and almost to be expected. The food and the service were wonderful. Very timely serving the meal. All the appetizers ordered were exceptional. The manager was very friendly and involved with the meal which made it feel even more special. Would definitely go back!

    Sofia was exceptional!! The food was amazing, the ambience was lovely, and the staff were all spot on. Grace was our server and she was the best! She was helpful in picking out some appetizers and entrees for the table. She recommended the octopus and the carpaccio (both were delicious). I’ll definitely be returning!

    I’ve been to many upscale restaurants here in Miami, and Sofia truly surpassed my expectations. Not only was it a beautiful environment and spectacular selection of quality food, but what stood out to me above all was the fantastic service. We were taken care of by our waiter Carlo and Floor manager Mario. Carlo from the jump was so delightful and charismatic and Mario was very attentive to me and my girls. Would definitely recommend and I will be returning!

    The cacio e Pepe was too salty, and the pasta did not taste fresh. The place looks beautiful outside but inside the design is an eclectic mix of things that do not go well together. Overall is one of those typical miami places that is trying too hard to be cool and it’s just an ok food with an overpriced menu. Not worth it, if you’re looking for great caccio e Pepe and pasta in general go to Sapore di mare in coconut grove or Palat.

    Way overpriced (nearly $30 for cacio e pepe), but the food was excellent. And considering this place in the shadow of stores like Dior and Chanel, it's to be expected. Good for a splurge or special occasion. Would go back.

    We were seated right away and I must say that if my dates food would have been served hot instead of cold I would have given them 4 star but it did not and she had to wait to get a new order which should have been comped but there was no manager insight. The food was good and the service was very good and the Martinis were excellent

    The pasta is excellent. We have been there a few times. The reason I gave the food value a fair star is because we ordered the seafood tower for 2 at $140. The menu said it has stone crab, oysters, and etc. When the plate came, it had 6 oysters, 4 shrimps, a few pieces of tuna and a few pieces of lobster. We asked the server where is the stone crab, he said we are out of stock. If we were told upfront, we will not order it. We felt uncomfortable with this situation however we remained happy and polite. Because of that reason, we will go not go back to Sofia.
