    Exciting new venue. View will be great once renovations done. We sat outside on quite a nice evening. Menu was not overly exciting and quite expensive for what we got. Restaurant staff were ok, but the background music was more suited to a nightclub than a restaurant which killed the ambiance. We were very disappointed with the bar downstairs. Expensive drinks with poor service.

    Good isn’t worth the money, really nice views but we got seated in the middle of the floor and basically ignored for the night. For the money being paid more attention needs to be paid especially when it went even that busy.

    Great service, good food but it was cold. Sitting under an air conditioning unit and had to leave my coat on. The food practically froze on the plate. It was such a shame. This is a great location with really friendly staff but when your cold there is no pleasure in dining out.

    Place is amazing, staff was very friendly and quick with everything. The food was outstanding for our dinner, salmon with puttanesca was delicious. Portions seemed small at first but don't get fooled! Starters were super nice, and decent in size as well, everything was flavourful and interesting. Salmon was a 5 star. Mousse dessert was served in a cup with marshmallows on top, and it was the best mousse we've ever tried. Cocktails are super nice, very rich and flavourful, mojito on point! Music was a little loud, depending on where you sit at, along with the guests noise around you. We did book an outdoor seating with a view( for a special occasion) which turned out to be closed, and we were never informed, so we were sat at the loudest area initially, however we got relocated to a table by the glass wall so the view expectation was also fulfilled which was the most important for us tbh. All-together really great experience, and staff is really nice, will definitely go back. p.s smokers need to go back to ground floor to smoke outside, and the toilets are on the 5th.

    Music was blaring and had to ask to turn it down twice (it was turned down the first time, but turned back up again). Our starters were forgotten about so our mains were brought to the table first. We said we were waiting for starters so the staff apologised and went to get them.... but this ment we were waiting about 30 mins from when we ordered to when we got food. We were STARVING. Otherwise staff and food were gorgeous and I would still recommend to a friend 😊

    Booking the terrace doesn’t mean you’ll be on the front terrace. We were disappointed with the food although it was presented well. At 7.30 the music is turned up really loud.

    Went for brunch in Sophie’s with my wife and it did not disappoint. The decor and ambience were superb and views of the city amazing. The staff were extremely friendly and tentative and all backed up by delicious and extremely well valued food. due to supply issues one of our dishes was missing an ingredient and we were notified immediately and unexpectedly that dish was comped on the bill which was unnecessary as the food was amazing but very much appreciated. Will 100% be returning and would highly recommend Sophie’s restaurant.
