    Food wasn’t as tasty or spicy with regards to the alla vodka pasta, and when I go with someone else the value is always horrible when the other person orders an extra appetizer or drink and I’ve to split the bill. This restaurant is to over priced. It would be bette if itemized receipts were allowed to cheapen the cost for guests who otherwise would unfairly have to pay for the other party members food.

    Our group enjoyed the entire 'experience' dining at Sofia New Orleans! The food is exceptional! Every dish from the Ricotta appetizer, meatballs, and scallops to the 8 different main course dishes that tasted phenomenal! We were all sated and satisfied with our dining choice. Tiberius is a super guy and attended to each of our party members with a wonderful smile and excellent service. This party of 9 highly recommend Sofia and will definitely return for another exceptional meal.

    I made this reservation over a month ago and got seated outside and I did not want that, I wanted to be inside the hostess was rude and said not available and walked away. The server we had outside was really nice and the food is great. I would go back but make sure you sit where you want to sit !

    We had reservations for 3 at 9 o’clock. We arrived at 9 and waited 15 mins until I requested to be seared. After we were seated, no server for more than 5 minutes and then I requested a server. We were comped one appetizer for our troubles. Food was average. The manager is unable to service a full restaurant. This was our second visit here, first visit was more pleasant. There are too many wonderful alternatives in New Orleans, we will not be returning.

    Lindísimo lugar, su decoración y ambiente. El servicio muy atento Compartimos una pasta - linguinis con mantequilla de limón y arvejas, suave liviana Y luego la pizza con mortadela, diferente ya que las que antes he comido, la mortadela se agrega al final cn la pizza ya hecha. Igual estaba rica, otros sabores. El postre de pistacho no fue guauuuu pero rico para acompañar con un café 🤗
