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!
The food was great and the service was also very good. I would definitely go back.
Generally good. Chicken parm too dry
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.
Great service and excellent food. Celebrating my daughter birthday.Will return
Great service, great food, great ambiance. Made my wife and I anniversary very memorable
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!
Seems to have deteriorated over the last year. We will look for someplace else for the next occasion.
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.
Service was outstanding! Food was delicious! Cocktails were fantastic! We recommend the filet mignon, the mushroom risotto, the chicken saltimbocca, and the flirtini cocktail.
Had a great time celebrating our sister’s 25th bday! Great food even greater service! Catered to all of our needs and we left VERY FULL AND HAPPY! Even our 4 and 1 yr old had a great time. Definitely coming back soon
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.
very nice overall. The food was good, the service was good. We will be back
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.
Eveything was excellent ! ~ From our server, Nina, to all our meals. 3 Filet Migon's and One Sirloin !
Food was delicious
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.
Some of the best food I’ve had in years. Anywhere.
Excellent all around! I’ve found this restaurant to be very consistent and that is a good thing.
Very nice from start to finish.
Our waiter Mike was great, very attentive and professional.
The food was excellent.
Food is excellent!
A little on the expensive side.
Enjoyed the atmosphere and we had excellent service, but neither me nor my friends really thought the food was that good- especially for the cost.
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.
The menu was great and we enjoyed our meals. Service and atmosphere were perfect. But my favorite part was the dessert menu - best dessert menu ever! Make sure you save room for dessert here!
The food was delicious and the service was excellent!
Awesome food and service! We had a wonderful time celebrating my birthday!!
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
Always a great experience, great food and staff. The bar is great to hang out before and after your meal
We went during dine out Boston for our 25th wedding anniversary and the food was delicious and the service was great!!
Food this time was disappointing (mussels were on the tough side and the broth was bland. Spinach was a bit chewy. However, the baked oysters were excellent.
I have yet to have a bad meal at Sofia's! The portions are generous and I have leftovers for another meal or two. The waitstaff and greeters are always friendly and accommodating. I feel appreciated for dining at Sofia's and I don't mind spending my money there.
Dinner for two during restaurant week. I took my cousin who was visiting from Chicago. We both had a steak and found them excellent. Service was great, too. Would definitely come back and would recommend to others.
Always consistent and enjoyable
Excellent steaks every time,
Caesar salad is delicious, ambiance is great, and service is always professional and helpful. Substitutions are welcomed. This is my date night go- to!
Great dinner, drinks and dessert. Exceptional service.
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!!
Great place to eat! Waitress was very attentive and knowledgeable. Great food! Very good ambience.
