    Hi guys. I had a great time at Sofia last night. The spaghetti, veal and zeppole was amazing. It was great meeting Kaitlin. She did a great job as a hostess. Very friendly. Jasmine did a perfect job as waitress. Attended to my every need at the table. Great seeing Amy hold down the fort. She leads with a smile and always does a great job. Will definitely be returning soon for dinner. Anthony.

    We had such a great experience at Sofias! The food and flavor of everything was amazing, and the service was also great! The oysters were so good we had to order another round. The lamb was also delicious. We were looking forward to the marketed live music, but the DJ was cool.

    I treated my 2 girlfriends for dinner at Sofia for their birthday, we all enjoyed the experience, we were able to share all the dishes we ordered, everything was delicious! I didn’t like the placement of my table as I was sitting and facing the wall the entire time. Overall was a pleasure to dine at Sofia.

    Had a dinner for two. We got our appetizers came in a timely manner. Entrees took 1hr 15mins to reach our table. We ordered gnocchi, rigatoni, salad and fish. The fish came last and it was cold. It came 15mins after the pasta. I had to send it back so I had to wait again to only get it at almost the same temperature again. It was bland. I wasn't able to eat it. Was very excited for the experience but unfortunately we didn't have a good one.

    Good drinks, beautiful space. Restaurant feels like an afterthought though . Given the price of the food, it’s massively disappointing. It’s near fine dining prices and portions delivered with very average food and mediocre service. And it’s super loud so keep that in mind if you’re celebrating something special. Server was nice, but most often nowhere to be found. They were sold out of two of three fish options but server not aware which of them was available and never came back to confirm what I would be getting after saying they would let me know. They proceeded to bring out the wrong starter which to their credit they fixed quickly. So the ‘surprise’ fish arrived—$46 for a piece of poorly deboned Branzino and wedge of lemon. Not a single string bean, carrot, potato, tapenade ..you get it.. present on the dish, just a slab of fish placed on the far right hand side of an oblong plater. Still not sure if they forgot something or if it was revenge for not ordering $19 side of mushrooms from the get go 😂. When I asked for a side they said they weren’t sure if the kitchen could turn it around in reasonable time—despite telling me when we ordered that we could add sides as needed. Pasta dish was embarrassingly amateur, I’ll leave it there. It’s a place to see and be seen but in no way a serious restaurant for those that have been to ones that truly are. There are just too many other options for outstanding food with ambiance in this wonderful city. At most I’d grab a drinks in the bar on a random week night which I’m confident it would do very well—the drinks were excellent and you can’t really screw up bar bites right?

    We typically go to Sophia once a month and travel about an hour and a half to have great food with great service. Unfortunately, with this visit the service was just not good. She was worried more about the men at the other table hitting on her than to take our drink order. She also has no service etiquette. We ordered a bottle of still water for evening and as she poured our water excessively, the glass seemed as if it cracked because of how hard the bottle clicked with the glass. We wanted to enjoy a few more drinks, but unfortunately she was more focused on the one table that we couldn’t really get her attention. We asked for the bill, she brought it out and someone else brought out a machine. We paid cash and was expecting either our server to come back or the woman who came with the machine, but she/they again, took a while. We gave it to the woman that seemed to be a manager (woman of Asian decent) and left. We’ll definitely return as the they do have amazing food, we’ll just make sure that we are with a server that we seen before or an older individual that isn’t looking to be picked up for the night.

    Came here for our anniversary. The ambiance was excellent and the service was very good. The crowd was good too. I ordered the lobster and ravioli dish. A $75 plate that left me still incredibly hungry as the portion was extremely small with just 2 tiny pieces of ravioli and a small lobster

    The ambience is nice and service was good. The interior is beautiful. My pasta was served cold however and the taste was average. My friend ordered lobster pasta and there was very little lobster on it. Salad arrived late also. Cocktail was good. Overall however, for the high prices, the food was not satisfactory.

    We had been very happy with Sofia. It had become our favourite restaurant, and we often entertained there. But our last visit strained the relationship, and so we are in no hurry to return. The problem was the music. It was loud, obnoxious dance music, definitely not dining music, starting about 6 pm. We asked for the music to be turned down, but our request was not granted. So we left without having coffee to complete the meal.

    We loved having girls night out at Sofia. Food was delicious & our waitress was very accommodating. It was really an experience to see them weigh our truffles at the table for our dish. What was annoying was having the manager hurry us up for another sit down. Our waitress felt bad and told us to take our time. For the price of the meal, dessert & cocktails I’m going to think twice at Sofia for a weekend destination restaurant for special occasions.
