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.

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
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.
I hesitated writing this review, but decided to finally do so as I think it will be useful info for someone. I love this place and have gone several times, the vibe, the service, etc. But last visit I paid $42 (menu price) for what was essentially fish and chips (without the chips). Described as Chilean Sea Bass tempura with some sort of lemon-yogurt sauce. I asked the waiter to describe it for me and he repeated the menu description and said it came with some vegetables (his lack of knowledge should have been my first clue). Anyway, when it arrived, it was 4 strips of fried fish with a tiny ramekin of dipping sauce. No vegetables. I wish I had taken a photo of this sad dish. Don't get me wrong it was tasty, and I know that Chilean Sea Bass is pricey, but $42 for what I was served was pretty out of line.
Delicious food and excellent service. Would highly recommend
Very nice meal, served by a great staff. Was over-priced but for a special night out this restaurant and people were good
The food was ok but I found it moderate for the price. Oily and nothing special. Some dishes were extremely spicy and others just ok. Server was quite good, but took away glasses and dishes without asking if we were done. Overall, the hype is overrated. Suggested they refocus on quality and service.
Date with husband after work: delicious food,
Drinks were AMAZING and the service was excellent
Great lunch specials! Amazing service ! Would recommend to anyone looking for a nice lunch date option💘
Overall great place! Ambiance was nice. Waiter was attentive and always available for anything we needed. Drinks were delish! Food was delish too! We had a reservation and were sat immediately. I would definitely go back
Loved it, the ambiance , the food the drinks loved it
The hostess and waiter were very friendly and helpful. The food was outstanding. I had a steak salad and it was perfect.
Very accommodating, great good!
Food was very tasty. The pasta, cappuccino and cannoli were exceptional.
Overpriced for the experience and offerings. Food is average.
Ambiance was nice, the food was okay. I would recommend the place for a date night, but I wouldn’t come back for seconds.
staff is very attentive...
food and drinks are outstanding ...
Everything was great
Service was excellent. The porter house for two was mediocre.
The atmosphere was perfect. The outdoor patio is beautiful and just quiet enough. We had the fois gras and two of the pasta dishes. Absolutely amazing. Our waiter was attentive, kind, and helpful. Sofia is one of our favorite restaurants!
Good food and atmosphere but it was a bit noisy as i was expecting a more quiet dinner with my date.
Received good comments on this place from a friend. Yet, my experience was not that great. Cocktail:. Not sure if they used a low quality bourbon or the overall mix wasn’t up to par. Food was mediocre at best including the recommended steak . So many better choices around. And the price … I usually don’t comment on it if the food is excellent but here one would wonder why. Service was a little over the top , with waiter standing next to the table watching us eating. Won’t return.
Good times as always.
Our 39th anniversary! Special!
The food is amazing here but we came on a weekday for a quiet diner didn’t expect to have loud music
We couldn’t hear each other speak
