Excellent food quality, ambiance and informed serving staff. We ordered 12 oysters, grilled octopus, stuffed zucchini flowers, beef carpaccio, wagyu steak and filet mignon, desserts were chocolate cake with passion fruit gelato, tiramisu. Espresso martinis and grappa. Fine wine selection to choose from. Will definitely return

Our food came out cold, our grilled octopus came out overcooked. When the dish was re-created it was still over cooked. Not worth the money, many other restaurants with better food and service for same price.

The ambience is very nice but the food is VERY average. The Pinot Grigio was watered down tasting and the waitress was beyond annoyed to be working there. Every question you asked would irritate her (and all we were asking was for dairy free off the brunch menu). They (her and another waitress) kept trying to rush us out as if it was super busy (it was empty) and it wasn’t until I told them both on separate occasions that I’d like to finish my meal before they took my plate away and I’d like to perhaps drink the glass of overpriced watered down wine before they gave us the bill. Go for pics if you’d like because the actual restaurant is gorgeous and immensely bigger than what I had anticipated.

The server brought dishes out at different times. Fifteen minutes later we got all of our dishes but by that time Our first pasta dishes got cold so we sent it back to be warmed up. We had asked for split bills evenly and somehow we all got different bills and had overpayed for our meals that were average. The truffle pasta didn’t taste at all like truffle, more like a butter and cheese linguini. Ambiance is great but the service totally ruined the experience for me and my friends.

Beef carpaccio was amazing. We ordered the Seabass and Veal and weren’t very memorable. Cocktails were great. Service was also great. Definitely not worth the $240 bill.

Food is fine. The problem is the waiter with brown beard. He hardly spoke to us. However, he was talking a lot with the couple beside us. I dont know why he treated us differently. Would not come back.

Mediocre quality of food for the price they charge. Half of the food was served cold, we asked for it to be redone and the waiter / manager accommodated quickly. $60 for a piece of cold tenderloin with foie gras, but the foie gras was the size of a toonie. Sides, pasta and dessert were good, service was good, but did not make up for the total experience. Overall a C+/B- restaurant. Most definitely not worth the price. Would not return or recommend.

It was good food. Portions were small. Service was also really slow though. I probably wouldn’t go back for the food. This is more of an experience type of thing because it is a beautifully decorated restaurant.

Excellent shareable selection of appetizers. Pasta dishes (I assume sized as a secondi) are small. Should caution people that may not be a sufficient main course (e.g. AGNOLOTTI) .... Fish and meat portions very generous. The BRANZINO was popular and well liked by our group. Lamb perfectly cooked.

Atmosphere was great - perfect for a special occasion.

Service was OK. Not as attentive as expected.

Already recommended to others ...

Too expensive to get such crappy service. The food was outstanding. But our table was ignored while they fawned over a much larger party. Should never have happened with all the servers that were working. Completely, unequivocally unacceptable.

We celebrated a friends Birthday dinner at Sofia on a Saturday evening. The service was fantastic, from the hostesses to the wait staff. Everyone was extremely friendly, polite and accommodating; attentive without being overbearing.

We shared 2 pastas, a protein and a vegetable between the three of us. The food is all fantastic, but the portions are on the small side, particularly the pasta, so err on the side of one extra dish.

We went for a pre theatre dinner with friends. Beautiful setting and impeccable service. Appetizers- stuffed olives and stuffed zucchini flowers were delicious. My lobster pasta was tasty but a bit underwhelming for $40. I would have expected a lobster claw or two for that price and presentation. Tartuffo for two dessert was fun to share. The waitstaff were friendly professional and efficient.
