Hello,

When I booked Sofia, I had mentioned in the booking that it was a birthday celebration for my husband. I also mentioned it to the receptionist when I called before the actual date and asked for a candle to be brought with a cake to our table. Previously, every restaurant I’ve been to to celebrate a special occasion or a birthday, they have gone the extra mile with their level of service to bring one of your meals with a candle and bring it to surprise the guest, without me asking. But I was disappointed to see they did nothing to delight their guests. Ambiance and food were both great but overall, I wasn’t completely satisfied and felt the birthday celebration was incomplete.

Going to Sophia’s on a Thursday night when there is live music is a bonus. Go for drinks and music! As for food the food isn’t the best Italian We have had in the city but that being said it isn’t terrible. It is quite pricey but totally worth your time for ambience service and cocktails.

We sat in the bar and had the best time even though it was quiet. Kirk was great. Perfect balance of personality and professionalism. I’m in the service industry and he was one of my best recent servers. Thanks again.

We wére 7 people and service was a bit slower than expected . Otherwise a good experience. Likely better for smaller groups and romantic atmosphere. Hollywood chic vibe.

3 of the 4 diners in my party got violently ill after eating at Sofia. Coincidentally they all had the same meal. At $45 for a plate of pasta only to get home and be sick, does not leave a great lasting impression. As an observation, the menus were beaten and in poor condition which doesn't represent the quality that the restaurant is trying to exude. I will say the service is good though. The wait staff is very attentive and professional.

Beautiful space, and a having live music was a nice touch. Our server was outstanding, very attentive and did the best he could considering how busy the restaurant was. We saw the tail end of the dinner service and our server was still very energetic and fresh and did a very very good job. The hostesses were courteous, although weird to see one them walking around with her shoes half off in a venue like that. I expected a higher end vibe which was achieved through the uniforms and the building and amenities, but was lessened due to the loud and crude table next to us, not classy in any way.

Absolutely a beautiful restaurant, with great atmosphere and attentive service.
Unfortunately food was underwhelming. BUT, the great fun atmosphere more then made up for the lack luster food!

Food was good. Ambiance was okay. Not much to speak of as we got there early. Didn't appreciate the waitress padding the bill with bottles of water and cracking them open without asking us first.

Great food, nice place, staff helpful. But noise level was crazy. Unable to hold a regular conversation. And to put a table of 35 at a birthday party near all the other dinner guests is crazy. No way to chat with so many folks making so much noise. Create a private space or a party room so the other people eating can enjoy their dinner.

Our server Matthew was outstanding, so nice with a great sense of humour. He was attentive without being overbearing, just the right amount of attention. We were really impressed! The food was fabulous, super delicious and wonderful flavour, especially the agnolotti and wild boar ragu. The sommelier was super helpful as well. Super fun girls night out!!! Thank you!

This is a large restaurant on Yorkville beautifully decorated with amazing looking staff and friendly. Menu was surprisingly standard so bit unexciting but food came well cooked and presented. It's definitely a place for that special meal. Pricey but wonderful atmosphere.
