Lovely meal at Sophia. We were seated in the little garden patio off of the restaurant. There were only a few other tables and it was very quiet and private. We both enjoyed our entrees. My husband had the seafood pescatore and I had the scallop special. Both were well prepared. All of the staff is always exceedingly friendly and polite. This is probably our favorite Jersey Shore restaurant, especially during the pandemic.
Beautiful spot by the water, great menu.
Had their lamb special; excellent. My wife had the sea bass also excellent. Service quick but did not feel rushed.
Visit from good friends
Always a wonderful evening!
2 Birthdays with friends. Great night!
Always absolutely wonderful 😊
Food, service and ambience were all great. Did a great job making the outside very hospitable.
Summed up in 3 words Great, Great snd Great. Sophia’s is becoming our favorite restaurant in Margate. We were there tonight for my birthday. Our waiter was wonderful, the food was great and the restaurant kept immaculate. We felt safe, well taken care of and appreciated. What more could you ask for except maybe desert on the house like Steve and Cookies always did for my birthday. Other than that all was perfect. We did wait past our reservation time for the perfect table which they will make sure you find because your comfort is obviously their priority. Wonderful service at a wonderful restaurant!
Great evening. Great food
We asked locals for suggestions for a good “fish restaurant. Without hesitation they commended Sofia. We were not disappointed...
Warm, authentic Greek ambiance. Mature knowledgeable staff. The whole grilled fish was done perfectly. We will return as soon as possible.
Great food and ambience. Michelle our server was friendly and efficient. Definitely will be going back!
Great food, service and ambiance
Amazing dinner. We felt completely safe dining indoors with all the Covid restrictions
Sat outside where the food was good and the sunset was better. A little pricy for/Greek/Mediterranean but well worth the visit
The food was delicious and the service was great!
Beautiful tent and under the circumstances we had an excellent dinner experience. Food was very good, service was respectful and not intrusive. I can recommend this restaurant for the food as well as for the value.
We dined at Sofia for a birthday celebration on Labor Day. As it was outdoor dining during pandemic the ambiance was very nicely done with adequate table spacing. The service was excellent and the meal was delicious. Steak and Tuna were excellent. I would definitely return again.
The food here never disappoints! What a beautiful night to eat on your terrace - such a lovely spot. The server was so kind to point out that we didn't realize we gave her a tip on top of the automatic tip added to large parties. We gave an extra tip for her honesty.
Expensive, small portions and very bland. Expected more for the price and the hype.
Wonderful experience and best yet at the shore. Sophia will make sure you sit wherever you are most comfortable with our table spaced 6 feet apart on the second level. The service was impeccable. I wish I could remember our server’s name because she was great. We both had the whole bronzino with capers and fire grilled vegetables and it was delicious. We rarely have leftovers but even left with some because the servings were generous. We will most definitely be back this year and summers to come. Bravo to Sophia for practicing social distancing in an enjoyable and beautiful atmosphere with delicious food and top shelf service.
It’s truly a delight to eat at Sofia’s because the quality of food is superb, the food is delicious as well as authentic, excellent beverages, cleanliness, ambiance is gorgeous and uplifting!!!! Sofia does an amazing job in giving her customers the opportunity to enjoy fine dining in an European atmosphere. I love the building, garden, terrace and Sofia herself😘
There was some confusion over the table location (inside or out) but this was worked out and our group had a wonderful time, enjoying the consistently good food of Sofia.
Perfect place for a special night out. Outstanding food, appreciative for your patronage and accommodating owner (Sophia). Beautiful ambiance for the stress of having to have open air dining only, this summer.
So accommodating with our reservation. Friendly staff. Very fresh food. The Bronzino was cooked perfectly. Great wine selection. Generous portions. Loved it!! Definitely will be back when we are in the area. Highly recommend.
First in door dining in months. Perfect night, just As we remember
Sophia's is such a beautiful restaurant with excellent food. We were sitting outside on the rooftop when it started to rain. Thankfully it only rained for 20 minutes, but the staff went out of their way to ensure that we were comfortable and dry. They switched out chairs and plates and were pleasant during the rain delay. Our server Maria was outstanding!
The food here is amazing, the service is great, and it’s just a beautiful restaurant! Would come back here for every occasion if I could and wish they were where I live year round and not just down the shore!
Had a nice family dinner! I recommend the salmon...
We've had great experiences here prior to last night. It had nothing to do with the food. The food and drinks were great. We had a 9pm reservation, and we felt rushed from the time we put our drink order in, until the end. I understand it is the end of the night and the servers want to go home, but I've been in hospitality long enough to know when you are being rushed. We asked for the oil you guys put on the table, and we were told there was no more bread, and we were told we had to put the whole order in, because the kitchen was closing. You take 9pm reservations for a reason. We never had a problem when dining in at 7:30 or 8pm. Hopefully our next dinner experience with Sofia's will be better.
A few days prior to NJ allowing restaurants to allow seating indoors, my family of 4 ate outside at Sophia's. There seating space was adequate with a very large test alongside the restaurant, several smaller tables along Amherst Ave and the upstairs deck with seating. We thoroughly enjoyed our two appetizers, a flatbread pizza and 3 meatballs with cheese (I couldn't type the name of those here if I tried). The 4 entrees were also very good and the service was well done with the servers and staff all wearing masks and taking precautions. Thank you for a nice dinner for my family.
Excellent atmosphere, delicious food! Would strongly recommend
Although we had to wait a while to be seated because a little rain took out a number of tables that had no cover, the rest of the evening was lovely. There is a large outdoor space.
The food was delicious and the portions were large enough that we had leftovers for the next day. Our server, Michelle, was very pleasant and capable. We did not feel rushed even though I believe they try to turn the tables over every 90 minutes.
I would recommend Sofia highly.
Delicious Mediterranean food
This is the 4th year in a row we have celebrated my husband's birthday with friends at Sofia's. We'll be back next year. Great food, great friends, great fun. Beautiful views of the subset and great outside venue. Staff friendly and helpful. You should def try it out!
Great food and we had a great waiter. Can't wait to eat inside
Our server Dave was great, food was outstanding as always, just a great night out all around. I would and have highly recommend Sofia!
Outside dining. Needed to wait a bit even with reservations but they did a nice job with social distancing, great food , good service bidding not feel rushed. I would definitely return
Our waiter was outstanding.
