    Food was nothing special. Service was about the same. Beautiful restaurant and atmosphere but disappointing overall. It was our last night in DC and it didn’t end on a high note.

    Enjoyed a good meal with friends from out of town. Pretty restaurant, delicious apps and entrees. My group enjoyed the tagliatelle, chicken Marsala, steak, honey nut squash raviolis. Service was friendly and efficient. We liked the round table for a party of six. Highly recommend!

    I asked for decaf coffee at the end of the meal. I was up until 4:30 a.m. it wasn’t decaf. :-( Separately, and this isn’t the restaurant’s fault, but the location is not good for people who want to hear themselves think. On a Saturday night in the District, there is a vast number of police sirens, and this restaurant is right in the hot spot of all this street noise.

    Heard great things about the restaurant. Was somewhat disappointed about the service, not our waiter who was great, but the helpers that would bring the food from the kitchen who lacked any sense of training, pretty much tossing the food at us from one corner of the table, to the extend that some food fell of the plate. I expected a better fine cuisine experience and not a highway diner.

    Went for happy hour on a Friday night. We sat outside and it was breezy, but the heaters kept us warm. I enjoyed the Lambrusco and my friends had mixed drinks. The lasagna bites on the happy hour menu were awesome, and so were the wings. Eddie was our server and was super friendly. Thomas the GM and Toby the Asst GM stopped by our table to see how we were enjoying everything. Overall, the staff, food, drinks, atmosphere were 10/10. Can’t wait to go back!

    Do not order the chicken! Two people ordered chicken marsala and the gristle was left in both orders, and there should have been more mushrooms and gravy. We had to ask for the bread, and we were not told that pizza was available. We say it being cooked and the waiter said "people do not order pizza for dinner, unless they know we have it???" The pizza did look good but we had already dined. About 8 block walk to National Theater

    The food was excellent. The restaurant had a nice vibe and excellent ambiance; however, the service was not that great. We made a reservation for my wife’s birthday and the server didn’t even make the effort to make special. The service takes away from the great food they serve. With that said, I will return because of the ambiance an excellent food.

    The bar “ran out” of lemon peel twists for cocktails. Not good! Martinis served in a glass designed to hold port wine! Appetizers were tasty…burrata with beets and steak tartare. Entree of monkfish was good but the linguine with clams was not good at all. No taste, under salted and consisted of just linguine and a few clams. No other seasoning was evident in spite of listed on menu. The manger did take it off our bill. We had previously been to Via Sophia by the Sea in Kennebunkport Maine and it was delicious and we were expecting the same from Via Sophia in DC. Our waiter was very inattentive and we had to get his attention for everything. All in all not a good evening out.

    Via Sophia ended being a great spot to eat - the food was delicious and the service was excellent. The portions were a bit smaller than I was hoping, and I sat outside, which ended up being slightly noisier than I wanted. But overall, it was a good experience.

    I checked outdoor dining on my reservation. There was no indication that this would be based on availability. I chose this restaurant for a business meal solely on the outdoor dining option as I have COVID conscious employees. When we arrived (5 minutes early), the host started taking us to an inside table and when I said my reservation was for outside, he said there was not a spot available outside. I did not want to make a big deal of this in front of my team, but frankly would have chosen a different restaurant had I known we would be eating inside.
