Excellent food and ambiance. Just wish the staff were a little better versed in reading the dynamics of the table. I was there for a business lunch and we were constantly interrupted.

But overall super pleasant experience and will definitely be going back.

Restaurant is beautiful outside and in. Appetizers were very good. Mains were average. Sauce with the linguine and clams was not very good. Server was attentive but lacked in filling water glass or even trying to sell us on another bottle of wine since we finished the first one with our appetizers. Manager only seemed concerned with talking to one table and making sure they were taken care of.

Great experience for my business breakfast. Sat outside, which was a bit loud due to the construction in the park across the street, but otherwise was a perfect experience.

Love Via Sophia! Our design group meets there for lunch regularly. The food is divine and the service is wonderful. BUT...the noise level is beyond irritating. We have suggested incorporating some noise absorbing materials to help address this problem, but as of yet, this hasn't happened. If you don't mind the noise, this is a great place!

Great location, great inside and outside space, good vibes, but on this particular night something wasn’t right. The waiter was not particularly attentive (drinks sat empty for long periods of time), 3/4 of our meals came out together, our 4th guest didn’t get her meal for an additional 15 minutes or so. It was really weird and awkward. No apologies from the staff or management at the time. Went back the next morning to speak to management and they were very apologetic. Hopefully this bad experience was a one off because the food and drinks, once we got them, were really good and the location was perfect.

All of my food and drinks were good! Service was a bit behind but I think they had a dinner rush then. Casual chic environment. I like! The outdoor seating is a nice option too.

While the decor and ambience was beautiful unfortunately the food did not excel. When we politely expressed we felt our meal was too salty the Chef came out to rudely tell us off. The manager tried to rectify the situation but the Chef's condescending attitude over shadowed the entire experience. I would not recommend this place to my friends.

Mostly very good food. Only exception the charred Calabrese cabbage which was hard and lacked real taste. It was was without taste rather than bad. The daily special which my comoanion ordred was worth the it in terms of quality and mlkney. The aervcie was quite helpful.

Took our college aged kids for Sunday dinner. Food was delicious. Beautiful plates. We had pizza, eggplant bruschetta, pasta and a salmon dish. Also gelatos for dessert. But service was painfully slow and marred the experience that night.

Feb 28, 2020: We had dinner at Via Sophia. Entrees included turbot & the linguine alle vongole. The food is very good and the service is attentive. Via Sophia will have a good run because the location (14th / K) is very attractive and really convenient. We will return to Via Sophia to try the pizza next time.
