Hadn’t been in a number of years and was very happy we went back! Beautiful room, great friendly service and excellent food! As a local, I highly recommend!
Variety of choices and consistently high quality food; cocktails were a bit weak on the alcohol though.
Delicious Mediterranean cuisine. Great outside seating options and service.
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!
We did order tuna It was probably the worst in past 30 years If chief don’t know how to cook it just don’t have it in menu’s Grilled octopus was just burned No taste Service was fine ambiance was good nothing special Maybe other dishes were better
Staff friendly as soon as you arrive. Se4vice is on point. Meal was delicious. I had lamb chops n husband had veal Milanese excellent
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.
Excellent service and delicious food
Great food service and ambience
Absolutely A-Mazing evening from the ambiance, menu and service. We loved Edwin as well. He’s was friendly and knowledgeable. He made excellent recommendations for dinner. The food was delectable and fresh.
Server Gigi was attentive and extremely personable which made our dinner even more enjoyable.
Wonderful experience as always - new outside tent for seating was excellent addition.
we had excellent meal, the only thing I'd want to mention is that substitution of pasta choice should be permitted.
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.
Nice evening! Food was yummy and the service was good.
We loved the warm pita with dips and the pasta Sophia was excellent!
Great lamb chops and hummus. Everyone enjoyed their meal.
Nice atmosphere outside. Hostess and server were very good. Nice menu variety.
Lamb chops- raw. Literally. Entrees brought out within 5 min of ordering. Tuna was cold??? So bad .
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. ❤️
Missed the wings on the menu. Bring them back please
This was our first real post Covid dinner out and it was amazing. Food, service, ambience, we’re all there. A great way to get back into dining out!
We had a great waitress and a terrific meal. We will be back!!
Wonderful experience. Good to be back.
Everything was great from the service to the food and drinks!!
Enjoyed Special Family for a Milestone Birthday 🎈🎉
Server was excellent. Food was overpriced.
A wonderful night. Great food and great service. Thank you!
Delicious dinner. We love Greek food and Sophia does it so well.
Seated on time & server was great! Food was good but smaller portions for the price.
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.
Luv the place
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.
Great food, lots of options for all different food preferences. Good service, friendly staff. It’s a must when you visit the shore. Extra points, because they know how to make a good dirty martini!
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.
Enjoyed our first visit. Food was yummy and service was good! We will be back.
Seated promptly for our reservation. Tables were spaced apart. Server was masked and helpful with recommendations. Lamb chops were double cut and perfectly cooked. Caesar salad delish. Salmon yummy. Nice vibe inside. Everyone happy to be there.
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.
