    Our server Aiobhann made our night! She was friendly, attentive and very efficient. The food was excellent. My husband had the filet mignon, cooked to perfection, mashed potatoes and asparagus. I had the chicken broccoli Alfredo, which was delicious as well. I loved the dark wood, the ambiance and enjoyed the quiet of the dining room. I would recommend Sofia's!

    I waited over an hour for a rare steak. The bigger problem was that the steak served to me was on the menu as “aged” and judging by the amount of ligament and connective tissues and how rough the steak was, there’s no chance it had been aged. The manager even confirmed to me that they had changed meat suppliers in the 10 weeks since I was there last and commented that the meat “looked different,” than the old supplier. When I asked the manager of this steakhouse how long the meat had been aged she had no idea. She didn’t even apologize for the long wait.

    First time eating here. Service was good, the receiptionist and waiter were friendly and attentive. The wine selection was quite good; we ordered Silver Oak Alexander Valley and Duck Horn, both were lovely. Food wise, nothing too remarkable, but it wasn't bad either. One quirk was that there was a "Hospitality Charge" of $17 on our bill. I asked the waiter what it entails to, and he asked the manager to remove it.

    Great place - we go there for every special occasion in my family. Great service, food and atmosphere. And the "new" upstairs area is great - you can be inside or outside and if good weather they will leave the slider doors open so you can be inside with fresh air coming in.

    The food and service were actually surprisingly excellent. I had the Short Rib Pappaelle. It was a little rich but very good. Others had the shrimp and scallop scampi and said it could use a little more garlic but otherwise it was quite good.

    1st of all We Love Sofia Italian Steakhouse! We go there for anniversaries, birthdays, when family come in from out of town, holiday get together with friends and we are very good tippers knowing the struggle servers have to go through, but last night, June 26th was the worst service we ever received. We had to ask for a server to come to our table, after the couple who sat down after us, was served! Then when the server did come over, we noticed it was the kid that had been walking around clueless not knowing what station to serve! We could not understand why the woman server was serving the tables on the left and right of us was not our server! We had to get this kid who was out in the field sniffing daisies and there were no daisies in the field! Because it was my husband’s birthday and he really likes the food at Sofia, we ordered, ate our dinner and left. We usually order drinks after drinks and dessert! Not this time. To make things worst this kid came to our table, no introduction of name or anything. He looked annoyed he had to serve us! Yes, this gave a double whammy on his tip for ok to almost nothing! Dude, you applied for the job, got hired and get pay! What are you so upset about! You don’t’ have any obligation to the position! If you don’t’ like it, find another job! TSA are hiring at about $26.00 an hour! With this type of service, I think I will hold off for a couple of months before going back. Would I recommend a friend…not at this time! I don’t want them to experience what I experience at such a great restaurant!

    We went to visit for Father's Day. The food was awesome. It had great taste and seasoning. I've been to Sophia's on multiple occasions but this was by far my favorite. My husband loved the salmon and pumpkin ravioli. The staff was helpful and our waitress did a great job. She made sure she came over to ask if we needed anything at the right time. She had a beautiful attitude and was very patient.

    The waiter was not very informed and she took my appetizer / beet salad before I was even half way through. I was so disappointed and still I gave her a 20% tip because that’s what do, Nevertheless it was a Father’s Day dinner where the food was delicious but the service was poor unfortunately

    Once seated, we waited approximately 20 minutes for someone to bring water and bread to the table. It took another 20 minutes for our server to introduce himself and we needed to ask for a cocktail menu. We already knew what we were ordering for apps and dinner. Dinner, as always, was delicious! Our server was polite. I did need to go to the bar and ask for our check because we had been finished for some time, but hadn’t seen our server.

    We went for Father's Day and my husband's food came a full 15 minutes after the other meals. We sat as our food got cold while waiting for his dinner. The filet we ordered Medium Well arrived almost Rare. My husband's scallops were undercooked. Our server was very sweet and attention and apologized for the delay as the kitchen was backed up. Overall, a very disappointing and overpriced meal at one of our favorite restaurants.
