Steak
Located in the heart of downtown Englewood, we offer the most exquisite steak cooked to your desired perfection, mouthwatering wood-burning pizza, fresh seafood & raw bar, and many other gourmet Italian-American creations.

Formerly known as Smoke Chophouse, this Sherlock-Holmes-esque steakhouse & cigar emporium was transformed (with a lot of time and effort by the owner) into a bright, chic Italian Steakhouse, which continues to hold one of NJ’s only indoor smoking licenses.

Planning a gathering for a special function — corporate event, holiday party, birthday party, bridal/ baby shower or other? The “Garden Room” at Sofia is available for parties of up to 60 people. With its retractable roof, the weather can be another “guest” at your affair during those warm weather months.

Food and service was great. I had the lamb, wife had the lobster pasta. We each had 2 cocktails and they were great as well. Would definitely recommend Sofia.

My boyfriend and I went here because it was advertised on Instagram regarding a cigar lounge. Such a disappointment in the service. When we arrived the hostess walked us past multiple open tables and sat us all the way in the back where no one else was sitting. Their excuse was “they wanted to give all the workers something to do by putting us in their section.
At the end of our dinner we were brought the bill inside a cigar box; which I though was very cool. I was offered to keep the box and gladly accepted. As we walked to the door I was targeted by the hostess at the entrance saying I was stealing the box. Due to my experience and how I was caused to feel I would not return nor recommend this place to anyone.

Went for Saturday before Valentine's Day. Found octopus to be excellent, and enjoyed the French onion soup very much. Porterhouse for 2 was wonderful, and had plenty to take home.

The food, drinks and service was great. It was more the clientele that were a little rowdy and not as classy. They were screaming and making out at the table across from us.

I had made a reservation for indoor seating, but was seated under the enclosed tent outside which I guess they consider indoor now. Although there were heaters, it was FREEZING. So cold I had to keep my jacket on and sit on my hands to keep warm.

The food itself was bland and came out Luke warm at best. The gelato that came with the brunch was freezer burned and tasted like it was melted and refrozen a few times.

While leaving, the hostess/floor manager was BEYOND rude to my friend when she tried to provide very polite feedback.

I’ve been to Sophias many times but this would make me rethink returning.

I thought the food was good. It was definitely not kid friendly but my waiter was truly accommodating. To the hostess at the front...this is COVID and you should acknowledge all patrons that enter the restaurant. We came in from NY. I would go back but not with my family.

Staff could not have been more accommodating. Business meetings during COVID-19 when it is 20-30 degrees are challenging enough, but the staff was impeccable, food was great, and I cannot wait to try out the cigar lounge in my next visit. Kudos to the team.

Food was subpar and lacked flavor. Service was basic. Was expecting more for the prices. Steak was cooked unevenly and not at all seasoned.
