    The restaurant was exquisitely decorated for the holiday season. The food was very good. Unfortunately there was a very loud party in a room above the dining area that spilled over to those in the dining room below. We could hardly hear each other and the group was extremely raucous which interfered with our dining experience. We will go back but in the future will ask to be seated far away from any private parties.

    Wonderful! We’ve been here before, the food has always been delicious. The scallops special and flat iron special were mouth watering, they did not disappoint. As much as the food always won our hearts, today it was the service. I made reservations, but I forgot to indicate that we had someone wheelchair bound. I called to let them know. They were accommodating! My elderly parent felt special, from the moment we walked in to the moment we left, and that is exactly what we wanted for him. Thank you!!

    Wonderful dinner at Sofias. Our service Irene was phenomenal. She was attentive, kind and helpful. As this was our first visit, we weren’t familiar with some of the foods and she was more than willing to explain and add her recommendations.

    This place is..perfect. Ambiance is amazing. Food is always great everytime we go. Hostesses, bartender and servers are a huge part of why we go. Our favorite is Arbie. She is as knowledgeable about the food and wine as she is pretty. We had a guest with gluten issues and she walked her through the menu, recommended wine with meals and came back several times to check on us. Don't pass up the warm bread and pesto, or the risotto. Or the chicken for that matter. Fabulous restaurant!

    The food was up and down. The seafood was universally excellent, as were salads and dips. The pasta was okay, the superbowl with chicken very dry. Flatbread interesting and good. Server was attentive. But...it is very very noisy with no soft surfaces to deaden sound. We had to yell to be heard at a table of 8. Most upsetting was paying the bill. He ran my card, and I understood that the tip was included in the bill given the size of the party. I asked and the first two employees I asked said they didn't know. I hunted down my server who said yes but people like to tip more. My bill was 500.00 and I almost tipped another 100.00. I think there is a better way to tell customers. Please know I did not have an itemized slip to compare. Not sure we will return after this.

    We had a lovely dinner. Five ladies deciding on a restaurant is hard enough and then worrying about whether they can each find something they want on the menu is tough. We all were extremely happy with our meals and appetizers. Even the pickiest eaters had no complaints, only compliments.

    Our waitress Arbesa was super friendly and helpful with recommendations and attentive with out being intrusive We go there so my wife can get a whole Branzino which she gets served whole and enjoys to the last bite. She also enjoys the oysters which are very fresh. I had a salad with candied walnuts,pears and a wonderful cheese For an entree I had crab cakes very nice with no fillers All in all everything was excellent

    Food was good. However reservation was for 7:45 and we were not seated till after 8:30. When I asked was told 2 people were in front of us but then watched them seat more than 2 tables. After we complained we were finally seated. But they only hold your table for 15 minutes if you’re late

    The noise level was unusually high because it was the Saturday night after Yom Kippur, usually quiet during the week. We had fish, seafood, lamb, and tuna, all cooked to perfection and the sides were well done. A thoroughly enjoyable dinner.

    Saganaki was awesome as usual and the 4 Dip was really good along with the Caesar salad. Lamb loin special was very good and our Mixed Grill for Two was awesome as usual!! Short Ribs with gnocchi and rice pilaf was very tasty! Almond Joy gelati Tartufi was just ok and Galaktoboureko was very creamy and soaked with honey. Our waitress Ebreva was fantastic and made sure our every need was taken care of. Our table was in corner of the bar so it was very noisy but the food was so good, it took our minds off all the chatter. Overall a wonderful evening and we will be back! I highly recommend Sophia!!

    A 3 hour meal. Wait staff was completely stressed and disorganized! No salad for over an hour. We had a 6:30 reservation and we left the restaurant at 9:15. Meal came at 8:15 and it was cold…… will not return!!!! No one ever came to collect salad plates when we were done. Food was poor!!!! We had to flag down the waitress for salt and pepper, and drinks!!!! Poor dining experience……. And we were taking out a friend we haven’t seen for 3 years!! Luckily we had a lot to talk about!! No one at the table was happy with their food! Ug
