We had a delicious dinner, with fabulous server GiGi!
Everything was 5 stars! From
The greeting at the door, George behind the bar, our server, and the food was beyond delicious!
Our first time at Sofia, and we’ll be back! Great ambiance, great food & the wait staff is so friendly and so good at what they do!
This was our second very disappointing meal at Sofia. We used to think it was a quality restaurant.
Our server didn’t seem to know how to do his job. He consistently offered us amenities too late (ie cracked pepper for our salads when they were half eaten). He also did not seem at all concerned about doing a decent job.
Besides an inattentive and inexperienced server, the food was barely passable. My husband’s seafood pescatore had zero shellfish and was a skimpy portion. The few shrimp were dried out. My seafood pla ki was more ample but the shrimp were so dried out I couldn’t eat them. We skipped dessert as we just wanted to leave. This was a pricey dinner that was uncomfortable and unappetizing.
Great food! We will be back!
The food was superb. Well plated, tasty, and priced accordingly! Our server was very pleasant and made excellent recommendations. The wine list was large and reasonable. Thanks for a great experience.
We are outside. The ambiance was perfect. The heaters were awesome and plentiful and we were not cold. Service was great. Food did not disappoint.
Very good as usual
Sofia’s never disappoints! The ambiance, the staff, and the food is magnificent. There is something to satisfy everyone’s pallet. Try the Greek salad, the entrees are fabulous and the desserts are quite different than you will find at any restaurant! Great night, great people, great meal!
Was a very good dinner! Great atmosphere. A little pricy but good.
My girlfriend and I “Love” this wonderful restaurant.
The food, service, atmosphere is first class as well as Sofia,the owner.
It is our favorite dining spot at the Shore!
Looking forward to returning next week!
If you want to celebrate a special occasion, entertain your family and friends, this is the place!.
Dave was a wonderful server. The gluten-free crab cakes were stellar as was the short rib special.
We have been to Sophia's many times over the years and, as always, the food, staff, ambiance is just right. We were upstairs next to a large party but the sound level was good.
Our waitress Gabby was excellent
Always quality food and enjoyable wine selection. Favorites are the octopus appetite and the sea bass.
We wish that you would offer more vegetables. My husband cannot eat broccoli and cauliflower, which is already mixed into your very limited vegetable medley. Please give us a better choice. We love Sofia’s!
Food and service was terrific! Hostess was disconnected and on the side of “rude”. All at our table made same comment about her. She needs a back end job, not front of house!
Asked to sit away from people and they honor that. They were very nice about it. My Bronzino was delicious.
Always a good meal at Sophia’s. Four of us all got different entrees and enjoyed what we ordered. Portion size was perfect. Nice to go on an off night and didn’t have to fight the crowds for parking.
Excellent overall experience
Definitely recommend, so impressed with design and food was excellent!
The atmosphere is beautiful and the food was outstanding
Great dinner! Beautiful outdoor dining overlooking the bay, amazing food and great service. We will definitely be back!
We had a great meal with our friends- our second visit- will be regular guests !
It was my daughter’s birthday, everyone including ours servers and especially the receptionist Dana went out of their way to make it a special night. The food was outstanding!
Outside seating is key to having a "quiet" dinner for four. The evening was lovely, table so we could see the sunset, food and service were quite good. Would definitely go back again!
We ate outside which was wonderful. Patio area is beautifully landscaped. Started were so delicious we could have made that the meal. Food was good except my wife’s bronzino was dry. Definitely will frequent again!
Love eating outside there! Great food! Great service
Love this place! One of our favorites-have had nothing but amazing food every time and the staff is so pleasant and service is wonderful!
We have been going to Sophia’s for many years and it is always a favorite. As locals we avoid going there in the summer due to the tourists. We knew it may have still been busy even though it was the end of September. We made a reservation but they still take walk-ins. We had to wait over half an hour beyond our reservation time before we were seated. During this time we had a drink at the bar and could have just eaten there, but wanted to sit in one of the dining rooms. We were seated at a high top table next to the bar. Our poor server had too many tables and there was not a bus person in site. Our service was very slow, but it was not her fault. We totally realize that many businesses are short staffed and if that was the only issue, I would not be writing this. Our food was unacceptable. I ordered the summer salmon which was supposed to come with an avocado and orange tartare. I received a undercooked piece of salmon with essentially a crappy store bought scoop of guacamole on the side. That’s it. It was awful. My husband got a fish special which was a bland and supposed to be over a crab risotto. There was no crab in the risotto. We both left extremely disappointed and hungry. I’m happy that they are doing so well, but they need to either turn away the walk-in customers or say that things are sold out if they can not make them as described.
This is the first fair meal we had. My branzino was over cooked and had no flavor.
The waitress did not come back after our meals were served to see if we needed anything.
I will go back because it is one our favorite places, but not too soon
Wonderful food service ambiance location. Our favorite!
Maria M the greater is terrific.
Excellent service and delicious authentic Greek food.
While down the shore we looked for a Mediterranean restaurant. We were attracted to Sofia for a dinner date. It is a beautiful place with both indoor and outdoor seating. We chose indoor. For our first time we were deciding between two separate entree choices (bowl w. protein and sea bass) or the Land for two with several meat options. We chose Land and were underwhelmed. The chicken was the best out of the Prime and the Lamb chop. For $89 for 2, I could have gotten same or better steak at chain restaurant. Next visit, we will try seafood and bowl and hope for better.
Sofia’s turns everyday dining into a special occasion!
Excellent food, service and ambiance like no other.
They are always accommodating no matter how busy they are. It feels like we are transplanted to the Mediterranean whenever we visit. Looking forward to visiting even more often in the off season!
They were very busy, they're short help, didn't get seated until 8:15 for a 7:30 reservation. Food was warm, not hot, server never came back to ask if everything was ok, prices are much higher and portions are smaller.
Our dining experience last night was a bit of a disappointment. Our table was in a great location on the roof. However, bright spot lights showered down on us. It was brighter than daylight and made my dining partners sweat profusely. We asked our server if she could turn down the lights. She did it for a moment and said that other diners could not see. So instead of moving us to another table we had to sit under the glare of the spotlights.
As usual, everything we ordered was decent. Especially delicious was the oil that was served with the hot rolls. Huge disappointment was the espresso and cappuccino at the end of our meal. It was really unpalatable. Our server never came over and I had to track down another server and ask him to send our server over after waiting and looking for her for about 15 minutes. In addition, all of us ordered mixed drinks and no one seemed to be able to taste any alcohol in our drinks. I was hoping for so much more from our dinner last night and we left feeling disappointed.
The grilled swordfish with crabmeat and couscous, and Plaki were excellent. The Tuscan flatbread appetizer was notable, and all of the cuisine was intricately seasoned and healthy.
