I brought some of my girls Who were visiting Toronto this past Saturday. Our food was great however getting drinks was a big issue waiting almost 20-30min to get a drink we ordered. I do know that everyone in our section was having the same issue. For that reason I am skeptical in coming back. We came there for an experience eat and drink ... and than more drinks and enjoy the entertainment which we could not. To top it all off after waiting 30min for our espressos our server tells us another 20min because they ran out of glasses and need to wash more. I did not have a good impression with this restaurant and I’m so embarrassed that I had brought my friends there to experience that.

Sophia was phenomenal! However, it was too loud (as a live band was playing on Saturday night) - which made it extremely difficult to conversate. Otherwise the food, décor, and service was spectacular.

if you book on Open table and have 4 people in your party, you will most likely get a table by the kitchen or the bathroom ... if more than 4 then you will have a nice table for dinning

I would recommend Sofia for the food. Service was not really good and the noise level was unbearable.
It would of been nice to have a dinner that we didn’t have to yell at each other. The music / band could start later not while we’re eating.

Seems like the restaurant is littered with escorts and pimps. The food was delicious and the service was good as well. We watched a musical chair of escorts working johns in the adjacent table.
A fellow diner as they were leaving made a comment about witnessing the same behaviour.

Went to Sophia for my daughter's birthday for Sunday brunch. Typical over priced Yorkville establishment with low quality dishes, poor service and high prices. Despite all of that my daughter enjoyed herself and particularly liked the doughnuts served beautifully for her birthday - so every cloud has a silver lining.
Do not order the veal is deep fried and hard as a board. Bruchetta both salmon and tomato were nice. Truffled Scrambled eggs were decent.

The restaurant is beautiful, but that’s where it ends. Unfortunately the food was so so at best. The vibe from the staff, other than the front entrance was very nervous and unprofessional. We were there to celebrate a birthday, group of eight. The waiter, although mature, seems inexperienced. Would be around and even interrupt when there was conversation among us , but once asked for something, which we only asked for two things, had to be reminded to bring it after waiting so long for it. Bringing wrong orders to our table and then removing them to take to the proper table. Most of the staff including manager were very confused and in my opinion not very social or friendly. A one star strictly for setting!

Party of 4. The service was just terrible. Our waitress needed multiple reminding on everything. Drinks took 20minutes. No only Sofia cocktails, even a simple gin and tonic. We waited 35 min for the second plate to come of of the kitchen. Then when we would inquire on our food and drink, we were given the cold shoulder and the attitude was “it is what it is”. Quite disappointed. We will stick with STK and ONE.

Our server Kirk was excellent and very attentive. He had an exceptional understanding of all items on the menu and went out of his way to ensure that we thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience.

The sommelier was also very helpful in narrowing down our wine selection based on the flavor profile and regional characteristics we preferred.

We researched Sofia’s website and were impressed by the ambiance and live entertainment so decided to book reservations there to celebrate our anniversary. We were disappointed as soon as we were seated because we were assigned a table in the bar - right next to the entrance/exit.....and not in the beautiful dinning room. Then we noticed that there was no live band. The waitress later explained that live entertainment had been cancelled for the month of March. Apparently the sound system needed to be changed? There was nothing on their website indicating this? In any case, there was a DJ who played good music which gave the place a club feel. Although the staff were awesome and most of our food choices were good, we can’t get past the fact that there was no acknowledgement of our anniversary? We specifically indicated on Open Table that we were there for a special occasion. A simple Happy Anniversary or thanks for celebrating your anniversary at Sofia’s....anything would have been appreciated!

I was pleasantly surprised as it was m first time here. The ambience and decor is wonderful and feels nice and luxurious. Our waiter was more than knowledgeable, he was passionate as he described in detail many of the dishes. The food was pretty great as well. I order the wild boar pasta and it was delicious and a decent sized portion. My friends shared the carpaccio starter and said it was amazing - definitely executed in a different way than usual and lots of different flavours and textures. I especially loved that they had their happy hour until 8pm on a Friday night! I even loved their stemware. Seems like they put thought into a lot of things. When I asked where the washroom was, the girl behind the bar even walked me there! I don’t normally write reviews but this place was above my expectations and I would go again!
