Thursday’s are live music nights and bring a fun, big city vibe Toronto. Finally!

Staff super on point. Professional. Helpful. They work like a team.

Good is great.
Cocktail glassware is classy and also elevates the experience.

Our server Matthew was outstanding, so nice with a great sense of humour. He was attentive without being overbearing, just the right amount of attention. We were really impressed! The food was fabulous, super delicious and wonderful flavour, especially the agnolotti and wild boar ragu. The sommelier was super helpful as well. Super fun girls night out!!! Thank you!

This is a large restaurant on Yorkville beautifully decorated with amazing looking staff and friendly. Menu was surprisingly standard so bit unexciting but food came well cooked and presented. It's definitely a place for that special meal. Pricey but wonderful atmosphere.

In was truly disappointed in the quality of the meal served. The oyster had sand in them, they forgot our second course and the main was just ok. Not sure I’d do this again!

They made a mistake with two pasta dishes. The pasta should have been cooked with tomatoes, but they forgot them. When we pointed it out, they just brought pieces of tomatoes (like salad). Later they offered to recook the pasta. But, we had already ate most of it and there was no point in getting the same dish again. Any decent restaurant would have combed it. But they didn’t do a damn thing. Pretty poor service. No wonder this place doesn’t make any of the lists of top Toronto restaurants.

Unfortunately everything about the brunch menu is disappointing. It either has bread or cheese or potatoes or pasta (aside from some salads they have). There is not a lot of variety - and the taste is not great. They should work on their menu especially since the area has amazing spots.

I have had a wonderful experience every time I’ve been to Sophia for dinner and have been impressed on all counts. Unfortunately, brunch was disappointing as the pancakes were heavy and rubbery and the tea lukewarm.

The service was beyond awful! Really nice place but they need to get rid of that waiter who never catered to a big birthday table of 8 girls! Not impressed. If you can’t handle it don’t be a waiter!

The restaurant itself wasn't bad but I have never seen such a pretentious bunch of people! I realize it was in Yorkville but holy crap! My burrata salad was good but my husbands coconut shrimp was not and our main course pasta was sooooo salty! I would try the place again but I know my husband won't.

Would have appreciated being notified that a private party was booked that evening. Noise level was bad had to move tables. Waiter could have been more attentive and food was just warm when served. Should have sent back pasta dishes and enjoyed them hot. Did enjoy decor and overall vibe of the restaurant.
