It's been some time since I was last at Sofia's and I'm sorry that it took me so long to come back. The food, service and ambiance are exceptional. They don't rush you but don't ignore you either; very attentive wait staff. Very elegant atmosphere but not stuffy at all; you're made to feel comfortable and relaxed. Will be going back again soon. If you go and consider having dessert, I highly recommend the Molten Lava Cake...yummmmmmm.

Our server was very attentive but not overbearing, knew when to give the table more time to talk. We had a very cozy table near the fireplace. My steak was cooked perfectly!

Quite loud and noisy.

Service was very slow despite being a Sunday evening and the restaurant was not crowded. Server was pleasant but perhaps new? Didn’t ask if we’d like drinks and oddly, took my bread plate I assume because I had used it and it was empty but there was still bread in the basket which we planned to eat with our meal...would have removed the oil and bread basket if my husband hadn’t asked her to leave it as we weren’t finished.

Sophia’s didn’t disappoint. Delicious food, great wine, took my food allergy serious, confirmed steaks and how prepared to ensure it would look/cooked to exactly our speculations. Thought that was a great idea as some diners have different expectations with what rare or medium may look/taste like. Fun evening with friends!

Great food and not overly expensive. I would highly recommend for a nice night out with just you and your S/O or for family special occasions. The service was really great as well. Very attentive. Really appreciated the complimentary valet as well so you didn't need to worry about parking or paying for the valet. Only recommendation is to make a reservation on friday & saturday nights because it can get busy.

We came for dinner, 2 couples, dinner at 8 PM. The restaurant looked very nice, the food was good, service was mostly good as well. The only hang ups I have with here is they close so early (10:30 PM) on weekends.
It seems that the staff wanted to rush us out, which I could get if there was a big wait, but there wasn't. I had someone come over when I took a minute break to talk to my friends, to see if I was done eating. I had eaten half of the meal, and I tend to be someone who can finish a meal.
Also I found odd that our waiter never came back while we were eating our meal. The bus boys/girls came by to fill our waters all the time, but our waiter never came to ask if we wanted more wine. We were almost empty when they served the food, and when I turned to ask for wine, she was gone. Just odd, since that would have added to their tip for something so easy.
The food itself was quite enjoyable. Everyone enjoyed the meals that they got, and everyone had a nice time there. Just was odd leaving a place just after 10 PM and seeing we were the second to last table there.

I think the food is good. But very pricey for what you get. We would come every wed or Thursday for the prefix fixe menue. Three of us for dinner $140 and I was hunger a hour after I got home. We will not go there anymore,just to pricy.

We were visiting with old, dear friends who are wonderful but rather choosy. They were completely pleased with everything we ordered including fish, pasta & chicken. The cocktails were exactly to their specifications and the mixing at the table was a definite bonus - a mini performance! The waiter checked in a couple of times without being intrusive. I had also added a special request regarding seating which I thought might be overlooked especially using OpenTable without having personal contact by phone, but we were gratified to see that our request was accommodated as desired. I will certainly both visit Sophia's again and use OpenTable for my reservations.

Love Sofia’s. It’s one of my very favorite restaurants. I am hearing impaired and they make sure I have a quiet table so I can converse with my friends. The food is terrific and I have never had a bad meal there. Their Espresso Martinis are phenomenal. Service is always impeccable. Great place. Highly recommended.

Maybe it was becasue it was a holiday weekend but the food and service were not up to the normal standards. No one thing was significant but when we thought about the entire experience we realized that it was not as good as usual. For example, steak was overcooked, scallops were overcooked, had to ask for grated cheese for the pasta, had to ask for sugar with the coffee service, etc. We have had many excellent meals here and will return.

When we arrived the restaurant was quiet and not very busy . Our serve was right at the table and took great care of us during the whole meal . The food was very good and came well presented . The place did fill up quick which slowed us between courses . The wine list we higher priced than local competitors but as a whole it was a Bret than average dinner

We loved the food and service. The greatest thing is at the end, I was too full from all the food, it was late night and we didn’t want something sweet that late. Tiramisu is my favorite dessert, waiter said they made it there and it’s great but we decided to come back. He gave us the check and a slice of tiramisu on the House. We enjoyed it the next day; it was delicious!!
