Sophie's at Saks Fifth Avenue- Sarasota
Fantastic food, beautifully plated, great staff, very nice atmosphere. A Sarasota gem.
We were treated very well, from the moment our reserved table for 5 was waiting for us. Service was friendly, professional and efficient. We asked for and received separate checks, with no problem. At no time did we feel rushed. This was a very enjoyable mid-day experience for each of us.
Everything was very nice. A loud party showed up at the end of our lunch which made us leave a little early.
The salmon was delicious as always. Service is amazing. Dining at Sophie’s is always a wonderful experience!!
Never a disappointment!
Sophie's has the best liver pate I've ever tasted, which is one of the main reasons I return to dine there. I recently enjoyed the delicious Thai fish soup and the key lime pie along with a great chardonnay. The wait staff was both friendly and efficient. I highly recommend Sophie's.
Poor execution of the entrees. Peas in the pasta were still frozen and the salmon was served raw. Upon return, the cous cous was not warm. Amateur mistakes with high prices. Appetizers and dessert were excellent.
Food is very good and it is a great place to celebrate birthdays.
A Perfect Lunch Experience
I first went to Sophie's with three friends to take advantage of the Savor Sarasota lunch menu. All of us loved everything about our experience. When I learned that they were extending the Savor Sarasota menu through the end of June I grabbed another friend who is a real foodie - and a great cook - and went back for seconds. She was as delighted with the food as all of us had been, which is a real compliment. I can't think of any way to improve the food, the service, the ambiance or the value of my two visits to Sophie's. I know that nothing is perfect but this is about as close to perfect as I've experienced in a long, long time.
This was a girls' outing to celebrate a birthday. Service with Nancy is always excellent. Food was delicious and the extended Savor Sarasota is wonderful.
Everything was excellent !
Michael is a terrific waiter—personable, helpful and efficient.
The food, service and ambiance were all great. We had a wonderful time. The turkey soup alone is worth the drive from Wesley Chapel! Delish! I highly recommend it.
Thank you SFA for fabulous lunch!
We had a great dinner at Sophie’s. We were able to take advantage of the Savor Sarasota menu, and everything was delicious!
A limited menu, but alway exceptional. Seldom busy for dinner. It's a treat to be in a quiet restaurant with outstanding food.
Savor sarasota lunch was awesome!
Best kept secret....most think of Sophie's for lunch but are missing out...wonderful food and quiet atmosphere in the evening...great for carrying on a good conversation.
Overall a very good experience. Our small ladies group will definitely go back. Service was superb.
Love Sophie’s, especially for a quiet and classy lunch with a friend. Food and service always excellent.
Delicious and beautifully presented cuisine...every time!
Always consistently stellar and worth my time. Food and ambience are perfect. Service should be taken up a notch, and a better wine list, otherwise superb. If the wine list and service staff were better, a few are great, the consistency would have me in twice a week instead of every other month.
Tried Sophie’s because they were offering a Savor Sarasota. The food was fantastic! Service was great. It’s a tiny space but really nice ambiance. Best of all, it was quiet so we could have a conversation without shouting over the din of many current restaurants. Couldn’t have been nicer.
Sophie’s is THE BEST!!!
This is one of the great secrets in Sarasota. Unfortunately they can only seat people up to 6:00 during the week and 7:00 on weekends. Food and service are outstanding, but due to limited hours we don't go there as often as we would like.
Small but extra-special food and service!!! Loved it!
Sophie’s always gets it right. I am very gluten intolerant & this is one if the few restaurants that goes out of its way to work with me.
Perfect in every way. Our lunches were unbelievably yummy, especially the curried chicken, not to be missed. Our server was terrific, prompt, helpful and charming. Worth every penny.
took a friend to lunch for her birthday. very nice experience. waitress was fabulous! explained the menu thoroughly and assisted with suggestions.
My absolute favorite place for lunch! Food and service are 5 stars!!!
My husband took me out for a nice Mother’s Day dinner. Our waiter convinced me into changing my order. He said the prime rib special was the best thing on the menu. I asked for rare Prime Rib. After a lengthy wait, the prime rib came out medium to medium well. It was tough and had no flavor. The mashed potatoes were dry and pasty. I ate two bites. The waiter asked if I liked it and I shared it was not rare and not good. He asked the chef for a rare piece and shared with me that they didn’t have any rare. He did not comp my meal or have the manager come to see me. I left hungry. Very disappointing first visit I had been looking forward to for several months. I won’t return.
First time trying Sophie's and will absolutely be returning. The food was so fresh, coffee was very good, service very good, loved the crab cake and hush puppies and their desserts...well...amazing! Great place, pretty much every single item is made there and you can definitely taste it!
We always have such an enjoyable time at Sophie's. The food is delicious, whether it is the beef, the chicken or the salmon, and the understated elegance of the dining room makes for a wonderful quiet lunch or dinner. The chef's tasting dessert assortment is a tasting of 4 to 5 pieces of heaven! It is a first class dining experience. We love it and make sure to go every time we are in Sarasota.
Outstanding service, great food and atmosphere. We ordered appetizers and different meals and everyone enjoyed.
Sophies is always wonderful!
Sophie’s was quiet and pleasant but the menu is extremely limited. We ate there twice in a three month period and the menu did not change.
This one of my favorites restaurant, I like the choice of background music, delicious small menu, and great service!
my luncheon date for important people in my life went really well and will definately be back.....Norma
Hidden gem. People only think of it for lunch but dinner is equally as good. Quiet because it doesn't attract as many people: probably due to needing to dine at 6:00-6:30 so you are out of the store by 9:00.
Had a lovely Sunday lunch with two friends. Our server was wonderful — described clearly the various items on the menu and was very patient. Loved our choices. Found the whole experience delightful.
I would recommend going here for lunch with a 2:00 pm reservation. This is when the restaurant finally quieted down as guests were leaving. Would recommend the Salmon & the Curried Chicken Salad with an excellent Red Sangria. Check out the dessert menu too!
