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.

I enjoyed the look of the space, and appreciated the cozy booth they sat us in. The waiter was very attentive, but not aggressive. The drinks were amazing, and the porter house steak for 2 was top notch. Cooked perfectly, was juicy, and let’s just say I finished what my date couldn’t. Desert was great too. I enjoyed my whole meal and would recommend to anyone. I also loved the natural lighting.

One of the appetizers- the tuna crisp- was inedible. We had to return it. The restaurant did offer to replace it with another item though.

For many months we had heard how amazing the food was so for our anniversary we decided to try it. The restaurant was very noisey and has a corporate feel. The food was bland and really didn’t have any flavor. The porterhouse was incredibly undercooked and grizzly, we could not eat it. The waiter did not return once the food was delivered so we could not send it back to be cooked more. We did not eat it. We will not return.

Have had better experiences at Sofia, it seems like the service is getting sloppy. Hostess was having a bad day and was very unfriendly, table and napkins outside were dirty and the supervisors walking around didn't even make eye contact with customers. It has become a money making machine and service is suffering as a result.

All restaurants have an off nite. Lobster salad was bland at best, not good.

Oysters as always, fresh and sensational. Refreshing glasses of Chardonnay.

Nitecap was an eye opener. It’s no longer in my budget, simply outrageous. Has Remy Martin VSOP received any special awards doing the Pandemic? Maybe there’s a shortage, supply side economics.

Service, hosts, servicers always top notch.

Not a good nite.....

Surf and turf wasn’t worth the price. Lobster 1.5 lb was mostly shell and not edible. Steak was great.

Ran out of burrata salad and replaced it with mozzarella. But it was tasty.

Fettuccine with rock shrimp was amazing although the shrimp were a bit crunchy.

Warm chocolate lava cake was out of this world.

Sofia is always my go-to and I always enjoy my time there. This time it was a little different. We were seated outside and it was raining that day, the table kept shaking and it was uncomfortable, on top of that water was dripping from the tent above me onto our table, and that kind of ruined my night. The server saw that it was hitting us and didn't say anything or do anything to help. The food was excellent as always and the service was good as well.

I asked when I walked in if the table they put me at was smoking section. (Outside patio) the host told me no it was non smoking. Later in night a table sat right next to us and began smoking cigars when I purposely asked about the table I was in and was told it was not a smoking section! Ruined my night! To spend $200 on dinner and not be happy I will not retirn!

We used open table to book the smoking lounge then when we arrived they offered to sit us outside while we ate and told us we could go back into the smoking lounge after. but that was not the case when we’re actually done eating…. We were not able to enjoy cigar we had intended. It was very disappointing especially with the exorbitant prices with mediocre service.

Extremely overpriced. Ordered the shrimp scampi for $39 which was three shrimp served with three croutons. Asked for spinach underneath the shrimp and it was $11, so I paid $50 for three undercooked shrimp served in a totally uncreative and bare way.

Porterhouse for two was just PERFECTION! We ordered the Macheronni and Cheese as is and I could not stop eating it, even took the left over cheese home ...I know weird, but I put it over the roasted potatoes and it was sooo good! Can’t wait to revisit and next time try the raw bar!
