Fabulous dinner with friends. Seated in the private room with only one other table there so it was perfect for conversation without lots of noise. Loved the chicken saltimbocca. Beef wellington was cooked to perfection. Very attentive service!

I took my dad here for his birthday. We arrived early but were seated right away. Our server was pleasant but confused us by taking away our bread, oil and plates while we were eating it. Then brought new bread and oil but no bread plates. She also took away out flatware saying she had to give us a new set. We were puzzled as there seemed to be no difference except for a steak knife. Both meals were excellent. We also loved the desserts.

The place is nice. Dark woods and clean, the staff friendly and attentive. I made reservations for 5:30 pm but chose to sit at the bar, the place started filling up fast. My wife and I had the mussel appetizer - it was bland. I had the scallop and shrimp scampi (4 each) scallops were tasty though small, the shrimp disappointing the saving grace was the spaghetti but portion was small and the price large. My wife had the chicken piccata - she said it was delicious and finished the plate, I ate mine as well - I had done a lot of yard work and was really hungry. The Deep Blue drink wasn’t made well but the Espresso Martinis were good. If I go back will probably get a steak

My husband and I having been wanting to go Sofia’s for quite sometime. Sadly it did not live up to our expectations. The pasta was heavy, the sauces unexciting. My husband had Seafood Fra Diavlo. The spice level was appropriately hot, but the sauce was thick and pasty as was the pasta. I ordered the short ribs over Papparedelle. The pasta was thick and dry. The sauce had an odd flavor that I could not recognize. The calamari appetizer, was, however, delicious, with a sweet but tangy sauce. The one bright spot was our server, who was spot on; charming, efficient and very pleasant. Not sure if that is enough to get us to go back.

This was a nice place. The food was good. The service was very good. Bianca was our server and she did a great job. My friend had the prime rib special and said that for the price it wasn't as tender as it should gave been. I thought the place was a bit loud.

Sofias is a lovely spot for dinner. The menu is extensive and varied. The food is delicious and the portions are huge (ie doggie bag!) Our waitress was very attentive, but not overbearing. The atmosphere was lovely. We were in a small side room which was very private, but when another party was seated, it became quite noisey.

I have always found that Sophia's food is excellent. The prices are reasonable. I can usually get a 8:30 reservation most nights on very little notice. The service was excellent.

Both of us had steaks and they were amazing. Perfectly cooked. The waiter was top-notch with great recommendations on wine and even let us try a few different ones. Valet parking is clutch! My only issue was that we were seated near the bar and it can get a bit loud in there with the after-work crowd. Just ask for a table further away and you won't be distracted.

Our date night at Sofia's was wonderful! The server was attentive, but left us mostly uninterrupted to enjoy our meal. The atmosphere was welcoming without being loud and the low lighting set the tone for a lovely evening. The food was wonderful! I was pleasantly surprised by the charcuterie appetizer which was not only more that adequate for 2, consisted of a great selection of cheeses, meats, and accoutrements. For our main courses, we enjoyed the fresh pasta and a steak with truffle fries - both were substantial portions, well cooked, and absolutely delicious. I am so glad we decided to get a dessert as the creme brulee was the best we have ever had. We are excited to go back for future date nights to try more of the menu.

The room was over the top noisy!!!

In addition...There was someone in the dining room who obviously had too much to drink and had a screaming/screeching laugh causing others in the dining room to be unable to enjoy the food and company of their friends.

Your environment sends a message of upscale sophisticated dining... on this night it was unbearable !

Mark is an excellent server. He knows and can explain the menu. He is very efficient and fast.

The food is as good as any within a 10 radius.

On a weekend the ambient sound is deafening and most unpleasant. On week nights this is not an issue.

Sofia's Italian Steak house is clean & welcoming yet still elegant. Except for the absence of soup, The substantial menu has something for everyone. We had a Caesar salad which had homemade dressing - it was delicious! Homemade pasta done well (al dente) is always a good sign of an Italian restaurant and theirs was excellent. My husband had the halibut which he'd said was yummy but complained was a small portion. I had the chicken saltimbocca with the homemade pasta and it was absolutely outstanding, with plenty for lunch the next day. I will be back.
