    It was our first time dining at Sofia’s. We were greeted by a friendly hostess and seated quickly. Our waitress was exceptional! She was personable and gave us appetizers and dinner recommendations. Which were all absolutely delicious! Thank you Sofia’s for a wonderful dinner experience, we will definitely be returning!

    Sofia’s is an excellent restaurant. Our family had Easter dinner there and everything was delicious. We had delicious oysters, shrimp cocktails and the Agean flat bread with prosciutto and the special flat bread of the day with shrimp! For the main entrees we ordered the scallop special with quinoa, the filet mignon and the special Chilean Sea Bass. We had Limoncello Flutes along with some ice cream for dessert. Ingrid was our server and she is very friendly and efficient. She did a great job. Other servers that know us stopped by to wish us a Happy Easter including Angela, one of the owners! It was a terrific Easter experience. Thank you!!

    We had to wait 30 minutes to be seated even though we had reservations. Octopus was overcooked. Our server, though, was very gracious. Should have stuck with our normal order and gotten the branzino which is always delicious.

    Soup to Nuts this place is AWESOME! This was my third time there and is was an early birthday dinner. The Apps = Saganaki = one of my favorite apps ever!!! The cheese is to die for after being lit on fire! Dip Trio = We chose hummus, roasted red pepper and tzatziki with the grilled pita. Excellent! The Spanakopita was very tasty as well! The warm bread with oil dipping sauce was excellent! I got the Seafood Pescatore which was the bomb! The seafood was fresh and so tender! All the other dishes were excellent and the French toast bread pudding dessert was OFF THE CHARTS! The most important thing was our server Vinny. Vinny was one of the best servers I've had at any restaurant. Professional, funny, quick, everything you want in a server. The whole experience was a big FAT A+++++++

    First off, the staff couldn't be nicer, they were all very friendly and generally attentive, the food on the other hand...meh. It feels like the restaurant is too big for its own good and the kitchen suffers in terms of quality and care taken with each plate. My dinner was inedible and I sent it back (the manager did take it off of the bill), others at the table commented that their meals seemed thrown together, and don't even think about getting dessert, they were stale and we had the sense that they were prepared much earlier in the week (we were there on a Saturday night). I really wanted to like this place, but I just didn't, take from that what you will.

    This is a fantastic place. Everything was so delicious from beginning to end. They started us with bread and an oil dip. Appetizer was a smoked sausage with peppers and feta. I got a key lime pie drink and a salmon entree. My boyfriend got the sea bass. Desert was creme brulee and a limoncello gelato flute. 10/10 would reccomend. Everything was perfect.

    Ate at the bar and the bartenders were very helpful and attentive. Everything was very good. The only issue we had was the Greek vegan Bean dish. It came in a red sauce but was described as being in Greek olive oil and with spinach. There wereonly 2 spinach leaves in dish. Flatbreads are always outstanding.

    Beautiful restaurant with amazing greek inspired food we are recommended to eat here for our first visit to Ocean City. Overall a very good meal and experience. I hate to be picky but I work in the food industry, A few points of improvement, less wait time for a table we reserved, please clear our appetizer plates before our entree arrives, they lacked a busboy or someone to clear the table. Our waitress Jamie was great and working hard as she had many tables. A very hands on owner Sofia watching the floor and stepping in to clear and move tables and run food. The wine flight was a great deal, nice appetizers, gluten free options for a friend. All well prepared and piping hot. Interesting no salt and pepper on the table ( we had to ask) the same for bread - you had to ask. Nice selection of sweet endings. Aside from a few hiccups, I would recommend for a nice shore dining experience.

    Service was very good. Felt like the sound was on the loud side for the amount of people (~3/5th capacity during off season). Most of the food was good, although pacing could have been improved. (We were still working on apps when the mains came). We ordered lamb chops medium rare. And had to send both orders back (as they were firmly medium). the second set was no better. A bit disappointing, may wait a while before returning. The tuna order came out 👍👌
