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.

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. :(

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.

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.

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!!

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.

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.

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.
