We really enjoyed the food, in particular the sirloin steak and the crispy squid, and the cocktails were fabulous! Unfortunately it did take us rather a long time to be served once we were seated and service for drinks / the bill was very slow between courses as well. The location is great and the vibe inside is very cool. Would definitely return despite the slow service this time round.

Big roast dinners were the highlight of our visit to Sophie’s. The wait staff were very friendly and the decor really interesting. The place had a nice vibe and service was quick. A couple of us had dietary requirements and the staff were really knowledgeable about what we couldn’t and couldn’t have - there were plenty of options.

We slipped into the Soho restaurant for a Sunday lunch and were very happy that we did so. Excellent food (we had the shared steak) and the service was excellent and un-rushed. We had a long chat with one of the waiters, Simone, about music, who was really friendly and knowledgeable.

We normally spend no more than 30-40 mins in a restaurant on an afternoon, but must have been there for at least 90 minutes. We'll be back.

One of the best steaks I've had in a long time. Great service.
Sides are not as good as the meat though and the music is too loud - the room needs some acoustic treatment to stop the whole thing from becoming a cacophony!

I went to Sophie's with some friends of mine not too long ago.
The place was nice and also the service was good.
We ordered calamari to share for 3 people but were not informed about the size of the portion what was disappointing as we ended up having a 1 piece and an half each. Then we had 2 beef short ribs what was one more dissapointment - outside was burned, meat was dry and very little. This is one of my favourite dishes which I order most of the time when dining out and usually the portion is much bigger for the same price.

Good location. Service good.
Very expensive food, steak not well cooked at £69 for chateaubriand cut. Chips cold and undercooked, side salad limp and not fresh. Sadly the peppercorn sauce was so watery we didn’t touch it. A shame as restaurant great ambience but food average.

Meals has less quantity for the price it have. For example, we order a beef steak with vegetables to share between two... and the plate come with TWO slices of meat (no more than 50gr per each), one carrot, and one piece of bread.

Service was absolutely appalling. Waiter forgot to put sides through so meat mains went cold by the time the sides arrived. Waiter then went off on his break and no one covered his table. Waited over 30mins for dessert menu.
Food was very average. Probably wouldn’t even go again

We were a group of four, we had calamari, aubergine and chicken wings to share as starters - the calamari were delicious but tiny portion, the pita bread that comes with the aubergine was a total miss, the chicken wings very tasty, maybe a bit too sweet for some palates. As a main, we had two axe handle rib eyes to share. We asked for medium done but they came very well done. Luckily the quality of the meat was good, so we enjoyed them anyway. As side dishes we had portobello mushrooms, smoked new potatoes and creamed spinach, the spinach was particularly good. The food overall was a 7/10. Our waiter was friendly and chatty, but unfortunately in terms of the overall service and how the place was run, things weren't so good. We waited for at least half an hour to receive our drinks, they only arrived after we finished our starters. All the food was very slow to come, we waited for the steak for more than an hour. We were told this was because the cuts we chose were big and they required a long time to cook. The place is quite lively, with a good vibe to it, but because the accoustics of the place is not great, the background music seemed more like a noise which added to the overall noise of the people and it made conversations very difficult. Would we go back there? I don't know. It was average on all points, not too good, not too bad either.

We had a party of 4 celebrating a birthday ,we were so disappointed with the whole experience.
Steak was over cooked but the most worrying this was the chicken was under cooked which was confirmed by the chief, a replacement meal was provided and this was not changed for .
We did get an apology from the manager.
A little small gesture would have been nice ie : a complimentary drink but this was not offered .

Service charge was still added to our bill of nearly £200 .

Although perhaps not quite in league of Hawksmoor or Goodman, this was a good steak at a good price. I had fond memories from their old site by the Lion king and this site keeps the fun and flavour. Also very reasonable wine list helped enhance the experience

There is no salami compliment anymore. Chips are not skinny as they were. The seem to look and taste like any other chain restaurant. A bit disappointed. Service was excellent as always. And the restaurant has a nice ambience. Perfect for birthday or another celebration. Staff is very helpful and friendly. But it’s not the Sophie’s Steakhouse we k ow from Covent Garden and Chelsea.

It was a lovely venue, very big but a nice atmosphere,
We had the steak which tasted good and was cooked to order however the peppercorn sauce had little to no flavour and was more a watery gravy.
Considering the amount you pay for a steak, that is all you got, a steak with watery flavourless sauce not even a hint of a leaf or vine tomato or anything. So you are left paying even more for sides, I get it’s london but still not really value, I’ve had better steaks at Miller and carter and at least they include the sides in the price.
The waiter had zero personality and was very quick to take stuff of the table whether we were finished or not and lurked nearby throughout the meal, which we felt was weird although he was no where to be found when we wanted the bill so had to get up and ask for it. Overall a bit disappointing although the building was beautiful.
