Sofia - Englewood
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.

My rating of 5 stars across the board tells it all. From wine to desert.. perfection! Service: Perfection. Dover sole, sea bass, faux gras to name a few of what we had for dinner.. do not miss the desert menu!
First time here. Absolutely beautiful place and spectacular service. The raspberry yum yum was fantastic.
Overall great experience.
Came here for lunch with a friend. Wonderful cocktails! The service was great too. Will be back for the drinks!
We got our bread a little late, they made up for it. Other than that, the food was great, the drinks were great.
Everything was exceptional, the pace of serving and clearing apps and mains was a bit fast but we were able to take our time for dessert.
Always great food and drinks.
Really bad service from waiter. If you are a white person you might have a different experience.
Service is as not like the previous times we’ve been there.
Hoping next visit will be better .
My daughter and I shared the porterhouse steak which was cooked to perfection. Food was great and so was the atmosphere!
Wonderful food, service and drinks!
The food was great but Customer service sucks. The staff is rude & arrogant from the hostess to the server. We were 15 mins late & the hostess was not pleasant at all. The server had the same attitude. We were forced to order the entire meal in one shot. I had to repeat multiple times that please space out appetizers & main course. You are not dining at a diner & the kind of money you drop the service needs to be way better
The service was awesome from getting seated quickly and being attended to by our waiters. The waiter made sure our glasses were filled with water and would refill regularly. The food was amazing we has the Mozzarella di Bufala, the sophia shrimp salad, and the colossal shrimp with truffle mac and cheese. The food was delicious and came out timely. We didnt have dessert but I got a white Russia cocktail and it was great. Overall experience for first time visit on Christmas day was great.
Absolutely fabulous but also very expensive-would do it again for a special occasion!
Celebrating Christmas Eve!
Terrible customer service!!!!!!!
Our server didn’t even give us eye contact, pass by us and purposely ignored us multiple times, we had to ask another server for help, and later on he dropped the check and walked away without even asking If we wanted dessert or anything else.
Mind you we are both managers of customer service ourselves, so obviously this experience is something we would never want anyone else to have to go through.
Food is outstanding! Best steak I have ever had.
Excellent specialty drinks!
Nice bar and great ambiance. A little loud for dinner conversation. The chicken milanese was cold and literally had zero taste. Only order the pasta if you go. The fettucini is very good. The service was satisfactory, but for those prices, there should be a lot more customer service. I probably won't go back.
Amazing experience loved the food!
What a GREAT (and I mean GREAT) restaurant! Very friendly, very accommodating and very clean. Not to mention food is AMAZING! Sofia really checked off ALL my boxes for what I call a great restaurant. Valet parking check, Hostess incredibly friendly check.! Now let's talk drinks, food, bartender and waitstaff, triple check . They have specialty cocktails which really are amazing! Some of the names are hilarious like the "no crying in baseball". They also stock all your top shelf liquor and the bartender makes a mean casamigos reposado margarita! Nice choices of wine too. We started out with the beet salad and French onion soup. Both amazing. BTW, the waiter we had was SO friendly so helpful and the rest of the staff as well. Our water glass was never empty, we never needed to wait on a thing! Truffle fettuccine was delicious, I opted for the Chicken Milanese over fresh salad. The dressing was on point (as it should be) and the cutlet was perfection. They have many appetizer and main course selections as well as specials of the day. Lots of desert options but we didn't have room. It will give me an excuse to go back and try the desserts and other delicious entrees that I wanted to get as well. Thank you Sofia for a lovely night out. Wednesday night out in Englewood and the place was packed!! What does that tell you?
always a great time here with cigars dinner and cocktails
Great spot for dinner. Fantastic food and ambiance. Great variety on the menu and everything served was perfect - pasta, steak, seafood - all full marks.
The truffle pizza was AMAZING!
My husband and I sat at the bar for drinks, appetizers, and dinner. Service was subpar for being the ONLY couple at the bar and 2 bartenders. Cocktails are exotic and presented beautifully. Food was delicious! Definitely recommend the calamari, clams, and New York strip. Be prepared for NYC pricing (cocktails were $17). Complimentary valet was a plus as street parking can be tough.
I can’t believe i haven’t been here sooner . Great good great service you definitely get what you pay for . The cigar lounge downstairs is a huge plus since love cigars
Pleasantly surprised! Ambiance, food and service, all met my expectations with high marks! Will come again to try the rest of the cocktails and scrumptious menu!
Truly lovely restaurant with the convenience of valet parking in often busy Englewood. The heaters outside were insufficient sadly. Food is presented well, tasty. The menu is a little bit limited. Wait staff was charming. However I noted in my reservation that it was my friend’s birthday and they did absolutely nothing to it acknowledge it. :(
Very good food
Hip, trendy vibe. Love the fact a DJ is there almost every night. My date and I had the filet mignon and they were cooked perfectly.
Amazing place. Everything about this place was great, from the food to the service to the drinks! Highly recommend it
WAiter was a little tough around the edges. Try to give people the benefit of the doubt these days so didn’t push the issues or say anything.
Salad was fresh, light and tasty. All of us in our party really enjoyed our meals. We had the pappardelle, ravioli, chicken parmigiana and chilean sea bass. Drinks were good too. Unfortunately, the service was blah. For a fine restaurant, you would expect a little more from the wait staff. Our server seemed annoyed during our entire meal. Lastly, the prices are too high for this restaurant.
We had a fantastic server and the food was absolutely outstanding. Would definitely dine here again.
The restaurants we love are all closed on Mondays, so we ended up here.
Good service. Mediocre, overpriced food. Dining room is too dark to appreciate the food and too loud to have a conversation.
Felt like it was trying to be more sophisticated than it was...wish it had more of a lax vibe given the customer base. Seemed to be trying hard that it was a "fancy" experience.
It was great! Food was so good
First of all they gave us a nice table in the back! Very cozy! The food was delicious and our waiter was excellent! The grilled octopus was sooooo tender and the braised tripe - out of this world! We will be definitely coming back with our family! Thank you for such a great experience to make the night perfect!!! Cheers!!
The place was so cute and the hostesses were very nice, staff was also nice. Food and drinks were really good, a little on the pricey side
They were understaffed which is understandable given the times. Food was amazing and the restaurant is beautiful.
