    When we went to the restaurant, they didn’t have our reservation from this app. We almost didn’t have a table to eat at. Limited menu and the food was ok but not for the price. Way to expensive.

    Dined for Thanksgiving Dinner. Went early so crowd was no problem. Seated immediately and staff was wonderfully attentive but not bothersome throughout meal. Portion sizes were great, food was great and desserts were exceptional! I’d highly recommend giving Sophie’s a try. You won’t be disappointed.

    What a gem! I actually found Sophie’s through OpenTable’s ratings & recommendations. I checked out the photos and menu and it looked perfect for hosting my son’s future in-laws, who were in from out of state. Desi greeted us herself. Our waiter was Dali, and he was outstanding. We had 3 bottles of wine, appetizers and dinner, plus desserts. Everything was delicious and I was surprised that our bill wasn’t as bad as I expected. This restaurant is both sophisticated and casual, which makes it a perfect choice for many occasions. And again, the food was delicious. We had Hungarian Goulash, the stuffed peppers and the pasta, as well as the stuffed figs and the bries appetizers. The bacon-wrapped figs are AMAZING. Don’t sleep on this restaurant. We’ll be back soon!

    Great food and prices. I wouldn’t recommend a mojito or any drink with mint as it was not fresh. If you are looking for a quiet place, definitely go before the DJ and dancing starts. I will definitely be going back for the food.

    My food came out last after the whole table was served and other tables served that were seated after us. Ordered steak tips medium. They were well done. Waiter did well considering big party. But also got charged for coleslaw that wasn’t ordered.

    Rude wait staff, incorrect orders, and stale bread. Absolutely the worst food. Overcooked hamburgers, cold hard fries, and the stuffed cabbage leaves should never be put on a plate. Lack of seasoning, food thrown on plate, dirty tables - just say no.

    Not equipped to manage busy times. Had made reservation for Mother’s Day and had to wait in a long line to get seated. Food was mediocre and one dish was served completely cold. Horrible experience and was looking forward to it based off reviews. Person in line ahead of me said they are good when they aren’t busy.

    First lead waiter/host was absolutely a gentleman/personable from start to finish. DJ is great, if you don’t care for sit down eating, you’ll enjoy it. It was my husband’s birthday, Mother’s Day weekend, all (7-9) triangle colleges were holding graduations. So I had few choices. I didn’t expect “A” game service. This wasn’t even “D” game service. Waitress started out very promising. 5 of 7 people had arrived and the tables were wobbly. She quickly got cardboard to level them, got on her knees to fix. Then took our orders…it was downhill from there. She didn’t take orders in stages (drinks-appetizers-entrees). Said she could take whatever and stagger the order…not. We got water, waited, then soda for one person, waited, then upon questioning, my husband got his soda… more waiting the rest of us didn’t order anything else to drink . We saw what a struggle this was. Mind you, from the very beginning one person ordered a Mojito. Notice I haven’t mentioned that it came. At 45 mins after ordering we’re wondering where the appetizers were. We asked and she said she would check. Twenty mins later one couple got appetizers and entree… but still no mojito. No one else got food and those two sodas that the guys got were long gone. I’m about to run out of characters so cutting to the chase. Food took forever, after First lead waiter/host repeatedly asking about it. At one point waitress came to table freshly reeking of cigarette smoke. Lead waiter/manager and bartender sincerely apologized said wait person was new (idk, but it didn’t feel like she was new)we got free dessert plate long before the rest of food came, oh and a mojito. (Comp’ed) Wait staff raved chef was great Bulgarian cook. Menu is Greek influenced, yum right? Not. Very disappointing, bland flavor. Tough asparagus and pasta means. Turns out another friend had been 3xs based on a bar fly’s recommendation. Her experience was ours, right down to “Bulgarian chef” line… they won’t go back and neither will we

    This place is probably the best kept secret in all of Cary/Raleigh/Durham and Chapel Hill! We came for a very special occasion and we were treated like royalty. The food is out of this world fabulous. The waiter (Gideon?) guided us in ordering authentic Bulgarian treats (bacon wrapped fig app was so tasty) and everyone in our party of 8 thought their main courses were exquisite. The owner, Sophie, came out and greeted us and was so gracious. We would give this restaurant 100 stars if we could!

    An average, understated setting. The stuffed cabbage rolls were bland, lacked seasoning and flavour; and despite my dish listed a chicken breast, the meat was brown and unknowingly served in a cream sauce, which disagreed with me. This would not be venue that I’d make a repeat visit.

    Had brunch at Sophie’s on Sunday. I was a bit apprehensive as the description was Bar. The restaurant was very tastefully decorated and a good selection for seating. Our waiter was fabulous, from the moment we entered until we left. We had the fig appetizer along with the Brie bites. Main course was goulash and cabbage rolls. Everything was scrumptious. The restaurant house wine was so good, we had to be bring two bottles home. We definitely will return.

    Worst service and food. Was given a menu and requested the regular menu just to see they had given me a menu with $4 higher on each item.
