Our waiter approached us for our drink order approximately 10 minutes after we were seated. We order a half bottle of wine. He returned with a full bottle we were concerned if we said anything we would never see him again. We placed our order and watched everyone who placed orders after us get served and we were still waiting for our appetizers. We couldn’t find our waiter so we asked a busboy where our salad and soup where. Dinners came after that but we never saw our waiter. Nobody checked on us until it was time for dessert. Our busboy checked to see if we wanted dessert. We declined and our check appeared with the missing waiter. No apologies nothing. We were a party of 2 and were there for 2 hours. The restaurant was crowded and did not appear to be understaffed.

Unfortunately, because of the Margate Bridge Toll, we won't be back. It's a matter of principle. From where we live (Barnegat), there's plenty of very good romantic type restaurants to patronize...So why pay an extra $4.00 in tolls to get there?

Sofia Restaurant had a warm and inviting ambiance when we dined there. The staff was pleasant and attentive,inspite of how busy they were. The meal was better than good with a delicious branzino as an entree. I would highly recommend Sofia.

A most unique dish, the special, the Boar Osso Bucco was outstanding. The Chef made a special Gluten Free sauce for my friend Jack’s Osso Bucco, nice touch. Both of the girls had Crab cakes which were reported to be Ok. Great server, great atmosphere.

Prices have gone up tremendously, maybe 30 percent. A surf and turf from $ 40 range to $ 78 is Ridiculous. Not worth the price

I had not been to Sofia’s FR some time because of a bad experience. After going back I am embarrassed I stayed away as long as I did. Everything was excellent. An attentive server, that seemed interested in what we might want or need, a good pace for dining, and we thought everything we ordered was prepared extremely well, and everything tasted great. I will return often in the future.

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.
