The restaurant is upscale with a great vibe. However, I found myself wondering if they are trying too hard and not allowing the high end food to make the statement. They do not allow the ingredients shine. They missed the mark on a few dishes. For example, their Burrata appetizer had cherry tomatoes that were smoked. The smokiness was so strong that it masked the wonderful taste of tomatoes. It was a put off and we did not eat the tomatoes. Very unfortunate for a $26 appetizer. The other example was their very tender Wagyu steak for $55. On her first bite my daughter said "this tastes like hot dogs". Thinking she was joking, I tried the steak and sure enough, it was a poorly smoke piece of meat that gave you the impression you were eating a hot dog. She had to mask the unpleasant taste with hot chilis. Again, a miss on not allowing a great cut of meat to shine...to clarify, there was no mention or description of smoking either dish on the menu. I now regret not sending back both dishes.
One would expect more from a high end restaurant promoting itself as authentic Italian. You can get much better food at a mid range resto in Yorkville.
Go for a drink and enjoy the ambience..skip the food.
Portion sizes small, branzino was basic and bland and basic pasta dish was done erroneously. Our party was overcharged and we had to address it three times before the restaurant management figured out they overcharged us in error - it showed a credit on the bill, but the credit wasn’t actually applied. Careful, folks!
Sofia continues to be my favourite restaurant! The food is unmatched and the service is amazing. I’ve never been disappointed by this place! Perfect place for a nice date night.
Awesome as usual. Fabulous food, great vibe.
It was great!
The moment you walk in you know your night is going to be fantastic!
If looking for cool vibe and hanging out with the beautiful people of Yorkville check it out...good band nice atmosphere and mostly people dressed up....enjoyed it
Food and service are not great....definitely drinks and apps only next time
Way more great food/service choices Yorkville
By far the best dinning experience in the city. Overall food was delicious from starter to dessert. The place was beautiful and our host was nothing less than amazing!
The food at Sofia is absolutely delicious! Great date night spot.
We thought the food was fantastic and so was the service. Ambience wasn’t really our thing (like a nightclub) and felt at odds with the quality of food. Still a good experience though.
Very beautiful and modern place in a heart of Yorkville. Will definitely visit again!
The food was delicious and overall ambience just fantastic.
Thank you for taking great care of us! An unforgettable meal and lovely experience overall.
When I booked Sofia, I had mentioned in the booking that it was a birthday celebration for my husband. I also mentioned it to the receptionist when I called before the actual date and asked for a candle to be brought with a cake to our table. Previously, every restaurant I’ve been to to celebrate a special occasion or a birthday, they have gone the extra mile with their level of service to bring one of your meals with a candle and bring it to surprise the guest, without me asking. But I was disappointed to see they did nothing to delight their guests. Ambiance and food were both great but overall, I wasn’t completely satisfied and felt the birthday celebration was incomplete.
This place has such a great mix of people. The ambience is classy, the food is great, service is friendly and knowledgeable about the food without being stuck up. Beautiful decor, clean bathrooms.
Great food and service, reasonably priced would definitely come back!
Everything was perfect. Just waited 1 hour for service.
Going to Sophia’s on a Thursday night when there is live music is a bonus. Go for drinks and music! As for food the food isn’t the best Italian We have had in the city but that being said it isn’t terrible. It is quite pricey but totally worth your time for ambience service and cocktails.
We sat in the bar and had the best time even though it was quiet. Kirk was great. Perfect balance of personality and professionalism. I’m in the service industry and he was one of my best recent servers. Thanks again.
We wére 7 people and service was a bit slower than expected . Otherwise a good experience. Likely better for smaller groups and romantic atmosphere. Hollywood chic vibe.
3 of the 4 diners in my party got violently ill after eating at Sofia. Coincidentally they all had the same meal. At $45 for a plate of pasta only to get home and be sick, does not leave a great lasting impression. As an observation, the menus were beaten and in poor condition which doesn't represent the quality that the restaurant is trying to exude. I will say the service is good though. The wait staff is very attentive and professional.
Our Anniversary dinner for my wife and self, number 35, the service, food and staff were excellent and would recommend this restaurant with enthusiasm.
Sofia is the perfect location for a special occasion, the food, ambiance, and service was above and beyond. An unparalleled experience.
Great place,we will definitely be back! The food was as fantastic as the service and it was a very nice atmosphere that's transfers nicely from restaurant to bar.
Food and service absolutely amazing. Ambiance was great as well
Over priced. The hosts seem snooty. Very friendly waiters.
Amazing and beautiful restaurant. I loved it. Definitely go back
Nice beautiful. Place
Beautiful space, and a having live music was a nice touch. Our server was outstanding, very attentive and did the best he could considering how busy the restaurant was. We saw the tail end of the dinner service and our server was still very energetic and fresh and did a very very good job. The hostesses were courteous, although weird to see one them walking around with her shoes half off in a venue like that. I expected a higher end vibe which was achieved through the uniforms and the building and amenities, but was lessened due to the loud and crude table next to us, not classy in any way.
Sofia is getting better every time we dine there.
Food and service are impeccable!
Absolutely a beautiful restaurant, with great atmosphere and attentive service.
Unfortunately food was underwhelming. BUT, the great fun atmosphere more then made up for the lack luster food!
Food was good. Ambiance was okay. Not much to speak of as we got there early. Didn't appreciate the waitress padding the bill with bottles of water and cracking them open without asking us first.
It was a great experience with amazing service and delicious Italian food! Such a great atmosphere. Would highly recommend.
Great atmosphere but way toooo loud on Saturday night could not even hear myself think and felt like I was yelling the whole night
Great food, nice place, staff helpful. But noise level was crazy. Unable to hold a regular conversation. And to put a table of 35 at a birthday party near all the other dinner guests is crazy. No way to chat with so many folks making so much noise. Create a private space or a party room so the other people eating can enjoy their dinner.
Lovely dining experience and service. Beautiful restaurant!
Very pretty restaurant. Food was good but not the caliber that I expected
They food was delicious and the decor was beautiful
