Sophie's at Saks Fifth Avenue- Sarasota
Had a wonderful time at Sophie's celebrating a friend's birthday. Service was excellent, the environment conducive for having a conversation, and the food excellent. It was a lovely birthday lunch.
This was our anniversary dinner! The waiter was great and attentive. The food tasted a bit off and to my chagrin, I was sick as a dog within an hour of dinner. I had the chicken as an entree and the avocado toast as an appetizer. I am not sure where it all went wrong!
Sophie’s at Saks has become one of our favorite places in Sarasota. The food is excellent and being that the chef is from London, the sticky toffee and bread puddings are the best in town. Every time we go and every dish we have tried has been a delight.
Our waitress was very nice and efficient. Loved the bread basket and the spreads. Food was well prepared and very generous servings. We will go again.
Lunch was excellent, I had the roasted Chicken Caesar salad.
20% off bottles of wine on Monday was nice so we ordered a bottle of white wine..will look forward to returning sometime soon!
Wonderful food and service. Creative, plentiful portions. Great bread basket. Terrific place to dine.
This is a very classy, small restaurant with creative foods.
Great food great service. One of our favorites local spots.
My party enjoyed a lovely lunch at Sophie's. Our server was good, but I was more impressed by the amount of work the general manager put forth in overseeing every aspect of the dining room (and likely the kitchen, as well). He was friendly to chat with, professional, very hard working, and quite diligent in ensuring all guests had everything they needed/ were enjoying themselves. Sophie's has a small dining room, so it was easy to notice his involvement behind the bar, at the hostess stand, and in checking on diners. He out shined the rest of the staff (that I noticed that day) in personality and dedication.
All of the food we ordered was tasty- with the avocado toast surprisingly balanced and complex. Kudos on that little bite of deliciousness. The only minor disappointment was that I would've liked the cocktails to be a little larger... but maybe I'm just a lush. I could have enjoyed endless refills of the Sophie's 76 because it was perfection!
Overall, job well done. I'd love to only work with the GM when I'm there because he was such a delight, but it would be equally wonderful to see all servers rise to his level of excellence.
Loved the food and the Bread even took a loaf home
We enjoyed the delicious hamburger with truffle fries in a nice quiet setting
What more can be said?
Mark, the Mgr., greeted us @ the door. Lunch was scrumptious. Service was prompt & attentive.
Always a gr8 experience! Our favourite goto lunch place!
Fabulous as always - great food, nice spot for lunch with girlfriends, good service!
The food was delicious and we had dessert. Our waiter was very helpful. He was very knowledgeable and informed us of the specials that day. We received great service and it was an inviting atmosphere. I would recommend Sophie's to others and dine here again.
I thoroughly enjoyed my dining experience at Sophie's. My only negative comment is that "cheddar" was misspelled on the menu.
Lovely restaurant, nice and quiet, and good service. Most of the food was good, but the hamburger was greasy and the French fries were so salty and greasy I couldn't finish the dish. Try something else.
EXCELLENT ALL AROUND! Consistent. Absolutely delicious food. Perfect service!
Had always heard that Sophie's was great - and now I know why! Great ambiance and food, great service - lunch was wonderful. I have nothing but great things to say and that we will be back again and again!
Celebrated my husband’s birthday here and the food and serve was excellent!
Food was fantastic and the waite staff excellent. Tables are very tightly arranged, like NYC.
Sophie’s is such a unique experience and especially now a days when restaurants in department stores really don’t exist much anymore. The chef at the Sarasota location has an impeccable pallet and brings such innovation to the dishes. I have only had lunch or drinks here,but I am looking forward to dining there one evening.
Had read the newspaper reviews and went there for a BD late lunch. This is one of the best overall meals we have eaten in Sarasota. Choice is background music and volume were the best! No words and soft moody music. Service excellent. We will make the 1 hour drive from Osprey there more often. Absolutely a must!
2nd time there, food was amazing! Have recommended to others already, will definately be back
It was my husbands birthday and they brought a little dessert.
THIS PLACE IS FANTASTIC...love going there. Price can add up but it is worth every cent!!!
I have eaten here a few times and its menu and food are always excellent . . . .
They even polish the glasses . .. . a bit a fine dining that is hard to find, particularly
at a fair price.
I joined a friend for a had a delicious lunch at Sophie’s We both had their curry chicken salad served with an onion fritter. I must say it was the best curry chicken I have ever had. It had so much flavor. I would order it again and again.
The service was excellent and the dining room is very attractive. This is a restaurant definitely worth coming to. They also have an outdoor patio area which looked very nice.
Wait staff were great
Great food but portion sizes were a bit large for lunch.
We love dining at Sophie’s. The food is excellent and and they’re properly priced. They have a great cocktail menu and an extensive wine list.
Great value on the Taste of UTC menu. Friendly service. Kind of noisy.
Very delicious food beautifully served. Wait staff is well-trained.
Food was excellent unique well seasoned
Service was close to perfect
If you can satisfy a table of 5 women you have a winning combination
Everyone enjoyed it very much
I have been to Sophie's before and thought it was excellent. This time it was just pretty good. The food was way over salted and I like salt! I should have said something, but I didn't so I can't blame them for doing nothing about it, as they did not know. The appetizer was also not as fresh as it could have been. I'd still go back, but with caution.
My friends and I love having lunch at Sophies and the service is always wonderful. The tasting and special menus make it so great for foodies who want to enjoy food but eat healthy. It has become our favorite treat to have a cocktail and lunch together.
Outstanding food and service. Chef is formally from Roast in Sarasota and he has done a fantastic job with the menu. Only problem is that the last seating is 7:00 PM but they do not rush you at all to finish.
Two of us went for pride fixe menu. Enjoyed our lunch. Service good.
Great lunch on Thursday
Three courses $15
Thank you Nancy for such great service
Food was made from fresh ingredients. Service was excellent. Small restaurant but excellent value.
This is one of our favorite places to go and we are always pleased with the service and food.
