Food and service were both amazing! Pasta was delicious and bottomless mimosas were quite the treat!

Went for brunch on the patio when it was snowing but the patio heaters, and blankets provided kept us warm.

Will definitely return

Love the restaurant, this particular server always makes me feel a bit rushed. But she is friendly and means well.

Just needs to be a little more laid back and less intrusive.

Food and service were both wonderful

We ordered the stuffed zucchini flowers and carpaccio for apps, and pasta mains. The spicy jalapeno cocktail has the perfect balance of heat, sweet & sour.

My only complaint? There was only one agnolotti left and we both wanted it. This dish is delicious - Pillowy stuffed pasta and buttery sauce, one of my favourites.

Patio is well done, spaced out tables and cozy with heaters and tucked behind the surrounding shops. Staff were taking all precautions and it felt safe and clean.

We were very happy with our meals which included the seared ahi salad, poached eggs and cheese omelette. Service was attentive and friendly. Unfortunately, we were seated at the end of the patio where it was quite chilly and had an unappealing view of a back alley with a broom as well as people going in and out of what we think was a washroom. It was a birthday celebration that was booked weeks in advance so it was disappointing we were not in a more comfortable area. The rest of the patio looked lovely and people appeared to be warm. We hurried through our meal which was too bad given the occasion--would have been nice to linger and enjoy a few celebratory drinks.

I love this restaurant. The dining room is gorgeous and the Patio in summer is great too. The tents were as nice as a tent could be.
The food wasn’t quite up to snuff but it could have been an off day or a busy day. My eggs were dry and avocado a little brown. I’m still going to go back.
Prices are fair and the staff is very good and friendly too.

Had an amazing dinner at Sofia. Due to COVID-19 restrictions the patio was the only option, but they did a very good job to keep it warm and cozy, with the covered patio and propane heaters all over.

The staff was super friendly and the Wagyu beef was delicious!

Sofia’s is by far one of my favorite restaurants! Every dish was exceptionally delicious! The head chef Rob is extremely talented! The service is always top notch. The Somm Christina is always helping us select the perfect wine. I definitely recommend Sofia’s for a girls night, date night, business lunch or dinner or a fun Sunday brunch!

Celebrated my birthday at Sofia and our group enjoyed the food as well as the vibe. Great place to come for a night out - food and drinks are pricey but expected for Yorkville. We were not able to order desserts/coffee at the end of the night but the staff can't be blamed for the covid restrictions/rules. After getting our mains, the kitchen had basically closed. Overall, a good night!

Had dinner on their patio, which is my new favorite patio in Toronto. I've eaten here many times before and the service and food is always great. The patio is beautiful and the additions of plexi for covid are stylist and look intentional versus like plastic dividers in other restaurants. Heaters are available and its mostly covered for rain. Was a great night with great atmosphere. Love being in the middle of the Yorkville Murals as well. Just loved it!
