Not enough employees to serve the number of people present. Drinks took a while to arrive and the food items were super slow. For the prices charged, they should have more workers.

It took 45 min to get a simple charcuterie. The whole experience took about twice as long as it should have, despite telling the staff that we were trying to make the 7:00 game, which we ended up late to.

We went for dinner and left after no service. We then returned the next morning for breakfast. Despite only 1 other couple in the lounge, service was awful. The food was mediocre for the price. I would not return or recommend for anything other than drinks.

Every since the management has changed this place is not a top spot to visit. Cocktails are disgusting and food even worse.

When I got there I was surprised by what looked like a cut down menu. We decided to get the burrata mozzarella to start off with which was delicious. After that we decided to get the truffle butter filet with an a la carte side of broccolini. The side was $9 we thought it would be big enough to share for two and it definitely wasn’t. The food was absolutely delicious but a $50 filet and $9 side felt slightly over priced. The only other options on the menu were an everything bagel seasoned salmon or burgers. Nothing else wowed us to order hence why we splurged.

We had a reservation, when we arrived at 8:15 right on time half the restaurant was empty. The hostess showed us to our table, it looked like they just found extra space and shoved a table in the back between the back door and water station. You don’t come to a place like this to be shoved in a back corner. I asked to move to another table and was told that they were all booked with reservations (I had a reservation booked well in advance) we then sat at the bar. After a while I asked if we could sit somewhere else since they were still half empty and the hostess said we could sit in a lounge table area. After about 10 minutes the bartender came and told us we had to move because a party was being sat in that area. We went back to the bar where we watched that longe are sit empty for the next hour. My wife and I looked damn good, we ended up spending $150 but I guess we didn’t slip the hostess enough when we got there to be treated well….

Usually enjoy dining at Sophia’s but when we got there it was pitch black dark and it said closed. Highly upset because we were celebrating a birthday and people came from out of town for this dinner. It’s actually unacceptable. The reservations should not have been allowed and the LEAST you could have done was post something to social media to inform customers.

Made a reservation for 8 pm for two, had to wait several minutes for the table to be ready - but that was fine.
We started out with a server, but after placing our initial drink/appetizer order we never saw her again and ended up having to ask other staff who passed our table and staff at the bar for additional drinks and food as well as our check.
The ambience was great to start, but then about 20 minutes into our meal they started ushering in a large party of 15-20 people to our section. Not all of them had tables/chairs and even most of those who did were also standing, unmasked, and were drinking and talking loudly/shouting in groups. They were less than 3-4 feet from our table at best, and had my friend and I strongly debated leaving before our food even came out.
I had high hopes for this restaurant as it was our first time trying it and seemed to have great reviews, but after our incredibly unpleasant experience Saturday night I think it’s safe to say we won’t be returning or recommending it to anyone.

Customer service was terrible. We waited on a sushi roll for 45 minutes, had to keep asking if we can get new drinks because waiter never came to check on us. Had to ask for plates and silverware. Was over charged and still waiting to post to get my money back even though it should’ve never been charged that amount? Not to mention, we paid for velvet to come out to see our car was never moved and we got a ticket. The actual place was so cute, was really counting on it to be good service but I will probably not be going again.

Our waitress did not wear her mask while walking around and made us extremely uncomfortable when she came to our section taking drink orders with her mask sitting under her chin. Her mouth nor her nose was covered.
