Virginia Oysters and the stuffed meatballs were very good. The Horiatiki salad was ok, not what you would expect from this place. The octopus appetizer and the wahoo dinner special were overcooked and bland. The sausage with broccoli rabe was sort of steamy without much texture or char. They seem to have stored their wines at room temperature during the pandemic, so be careful with the pricier wines. The ambiance and space is really great. The server was also excellent. Hopefully they could work on food consistency.

It was a terrific dinner. Several of us chose the Seafood PESCATORE WHICH WAS EXCELLENT. Our only complaint was that the wait time for our dinners seemed extraordinarily long. One of us ordered Spanakopita, and another person ordered the Tomato Bisque Soup. The wait time for that was long also. It was a very busy night, and there were diners outdoors as well as indoors, so that probably added to the wait time. Anastasia, our main waitress, checked in on us periodically. All in all, we had a great table and delicious food. Can't complain about that!

The dip platter with pita works perfectly with drinks. The crab cakes, lamb chops and seafood pescatore was yummy with great red sauce. For dessert,we loved the tartuffo, always a favorite.

Sofia is an mainstay in Margate - I have been there a couple of times- food is very good, but some portions for my group seemed on the small side, IMO.
Parking in the area especially on weekends is not easy -but this is something all the restaurants in the Bay Area of Margate have to work out.
Overall - it’s an ok place - but not up to par with other upscale places in the immediate area.

Our server was very nice and friendly, and offered us wonderful suggestions. We tried the Chilean Seabass and a scallop special. Everything was cooked perfectly and the scallop special was paired with the best risotto I’ve ever had. The ambiance was perfect for our Monday night date night.

Food was amazing! Highly recommend Sofia’S. Our waiter Chris was exceptional. He explained the menu thoroughly and helped us pick our dishes which were all incredible. We ordered the trio hummus, mussels and octopus. The tuna special was out of this world. Dessert was definitely worth making room for. Fig honey gelato was delicious. ❤️

Wonderful food. Highly recommend the lobster pasta with a pesto cream sauce. The Branzino was delicious as was the dip sampler. The lamb on the appetizer (lollipops) and the duo entree were over cooked. Server was excellent. I think her name was Anastasia. Attentive, professional, warm and knowledgeable. They were very patient with the 4 young children at the table. Not easy! Thanks for a wonderful experience.

For what they charge you, the potions are relatively small. The dip foursome appetizer is a disgrace. They give you a very small cup of each dip in charge $14 for the entire plate. Everyone loved their Seabass but my bowl with chicken was minimal and the chicken was very overcooked. I’ve been to this restaurant before I haven’t experienced this so it must be as of late.

I had open table points that I redeemed for $50 for Sophia’s when I made my reservation. Had the gift card information with number, etc and the restaurant said they were not honoring Open Table gift cards at the moment. If that is case, why did the Open Table account let me redeem it? If Sophia’s is not honoring Open Table gift cards at the moment they can let Open Table know that so that is is not an option in the system.

Service was good until the main entry arrived, then our waiter disappeared, we would have liked to have had coffee and dessert, but did not due to lack of service. Table next to us got their food, but had to wait to get their plates.
