We were looking forward to the new roof deck and were not disappointed - really loved it. Looking forward to returning during the summer.

We had a very nice experience, with service that was attentive without being overbearing. We have been there before, and returned because we were confident of the quality. Our steaks were excellent; a sauce served on the side of one was not particularly helpful (to me), but not a problem due to the presentation. Appetizers were good.

Without being negative, the wine list could be improved a bit. A quibble: when placing the reservation, there was opportunity for a special request. The management could not accommodate the request, but we didn't know that until the end of the meal.

we decided on Sophia instead of del frisco. It was mistake.
Steaks over cooked, minimal service, potato very poor,
Just nothing felt good and for same money could have had outstanding evening at Del Frisco's

Service was extremely slow. No one smiled or introduced themselves. Took over 50 minutes for grilled chicken and a medium rare steak when restaurant was only about 1/4 full.

Great food, great service, great time was had by all. We sat in the new outside patio upstairs. The only draw back was that the seats and benches are not very comfortable. They need cushions. Otherwise, yet another fantastic evening at Sofia’s.

We've been to Sofia's several times and always enjoy it. The service is very good, friendly and accommodating, attentive but not hovering. Food and cocktails are beautifully prepared and just what you would expect from an upscale Italian steak house.

I eat at Sofia’s often. No complaint other than the fact they don’t offer thinner spaghetti. They should think about offering angel hair or vermicelli as an option.

Everything started off well, drinks and appetizers came quickly. Waiting for the main courses took forever. A group of 3 ordered pasta for mains and we spent 90 minutes in the restaurant. The server came to us twice saying that the dinner would be right out, but a lot of time went by. We were really happy with the quality of food. Very flavorful.
When we asked for our bill the server took another 10-15 minutes to bring it to us. After walking past our table 4-5 times, I said that we really needed the cheque. She gave us lots of attitude and rudely said “good night” after slamming the bill on the table. She could have multitasked by bringing our bill while serving other tables, but that definitely seemed like a challenge. We may be back because of the food quality. But they need to do better with the customer service. For 1 appetizer and 3 pasta dishes, the experience should not have been 90 minutes.

Food was nothing special; the beets in the beet salad were old and tough. The pasta dishes were nothing different than Olive Garden or standard chain fare, at 2-3x the cost. Service was slow and inattentive. Never asked about beverage refills or a second cocktail. Never offered a dessert menu. Very basic. And ridiculously expensive for what we had.

Would not recommend. Pre-covid, this was a decent special occasion place. Last night it was not.

Sofia's Italian Steakhouse is a local favorite of mine. There is nothing on the menu I would not try. If you like lamb, they manage to cook lamb lollipops to perfection. They get a great sear and never overcook them.

Prior to the pandemic, the front of the house/bar area was my preferred location to sit. They expanded seating, I am guessing to allow for more space between tables and added another level. The stairs leading to the upper dining space are beautiful, but when people used them, the floor and our high top shook a lot. It was an odd experience. I felt as if I needed to hold on to my wine glass all night. Just giving fair warning.

I will be back, but may sit at the bar or get a table in the dining area.

I have generally loved the filet, but it was very salty and the spinach and potato were a bit greasy. My husband loved his lamb chop and my friend was disappointed in his chicken carbonara. He only ate half of his meal which is not the usual.

Our waiter was a very nice young man, but very young and obviously inexperienced.

The wait was long for our meal to be served, but we were patient and did expect that to be the case.

I will probably take a break from Sophia's for a bit. Will try it again at some time.

Another great experience at this restaurant, the first time we’ve dined out in 1.5 years. Very pricey but that’s why they call it “fine dining”! At least it was great. We’ll be back….

First time dining at Sofia and we had a great time. we started off with calamari fritti, & mussels, entrees: seafood fra diavolo, filet mignon 10oz, Prime Brandt Beef 14-ounce Aged New York Sirloin, Brandt Beef 20-ounce Aged Delmonico, double grilled lamb chop, they are all really good (delicious). The steaks and lamb chop were cooked perfectly . We were a party of 7 (with 2 young kids) , they sat us in a room which was nice so we are not bothering other guests. we will definitely go back.

Not sure if Covid has anything to do with the service or food quality. I ordered 2 cheese pizza for my kids. It had no taste and it seemed like they just dumped the cheese on top of the pizzas. Needless to say , my kids did not even eat it. I returned the pizza. Good thing I checked the bills because they charged me for it. I had to request to have the charge removed.

It was quite disappointing. I do hope they refocus on quality food and quality service.

We came to celebrate our 22nd Wedding Anniversary. Sofia surprised us with complimentary glasses of Prosecco and placed us in a very nice location in a quiet room. The dinner (NY Strip and Lamb) was as great as we expected. Our server, forgive me I forgot her name, a beautiful young woman from Brazil, was perfect.

The waiters/waitresses are very young. Different from when I dined there pre-pandemic. My waiter forgot some things and my initial bill was incorrect because he didn’t add on something I told him I was going to order to take out after my dine in meal. I’ve been a regular at Sofia for a few years and I noticed almost all of the staff was new, young and inexperienced.
