We had the pre theatre menu which was good value for London. Perfect steak and my son said his burgar was the best he'd ever eaten. Very friendly and attentive service too, would definitely go again.

We usually visit Sophie's Steakhouse when we travel to London from Devon. Our sons particularly enjoy the steak.

Do not go to Sophie's. The service was abysmal. They advertise Sunday Roast all day, but then don't have it at dinner.

Compared with Sophie's Fulham and their old Covent Garden restaurant standards have definitely dropped. Service was indifferent and the atmosphere felt flat. There was nothing memorable to take away or to recommend to friends. Very disappointing.

Excellent vibe. Great bar area with big open plan room and huge windows.
Best Mojitos we have had in years.
Table was great. The services was excellent and we though the food was good. Excellent sized portions.

Unfortunately I felt the service was poor we were never served by the same person twice and when we hadnt ordered our mains after 45 mins after our starters being cleared we had to ask for them to be taken to be responded "did you want something else"
We was then served cold steak and uncooked acompliments
Overall very disappointed and will not return

Loved the food and ambiance of the place. Great having a table overlooking the kitchen but not too near that you felt on top of it. Really liked the new location.
Only negative was I didn’t understand whilst sat at the bar having drinks we had to pay service charge as we weren’t at a table and there was just two of us.

The food was delicious! As a vegetarian I wasn't sure what choices I would have whilst my husband tucked into his steak, but I had the mostly delicious meal. We both loved the food, couldn't fault it.

Service was great too, Jess our waitress took great care of us. Lovely restaurant in the heart of theatre land, would highly recommend.

Its not cheap and cheerful...but you certainly get what you pay for.

Tried Sophies for the first time - buoyed on by a good website and some decent review. I'm afraid I can only say it was average at best. With so many great options available these days Sophies fell well short of the mark. Granted, this was a 6.00pm pre-theatre booking and perhaps the atmosphere is better later in an evening but my steak was nowhere near as good as it should have been when most restaurants can do a really good steak and some do a fantastic steak (Hawksmoor, Flat Iron, even Steak & Co etc). The chicken option was unimaginative and similar to something you might get at a pub chain. A casual place that just didn't feel in any way special. Sorry, but I will go elsewhere in future.

The reason for the fairly low rating is that, although the steak was perfectly cooked, the whole experience was somewhat influenced by the very smokey room we were seated in. Our eyes started to sting because of the smoke and when we came out of the restaurant we smelled so badly of smoke that people were commenting on it.

I took my daughter for dinner and we wanted to have a good steak somewhere that wasn’t stuffy or full of city types and Sophie’s was perfect, being quite relaxed and stylish. The food was great but meat apart, gluten free options were limited for my coeliac daughter. However, credit to the waiter, he took care to check with the kitchen how some side dishes could be prepared. However we did feel that service could have been more attentive, especially as the restaurant was quiet.

Overall the food was great, the atmosphere really friendly and I’m sure I’ll be back.

We have been to Sophie’s in the past a few time in Covent Garden. We were totally disappointed with our experience on Friday. Firstly charged £28 for 2 gin and tonics. We asked for lemonade but still that price is disgraceful I could buy a full bottle of gin for that price. We did get half our money back as wer we given doubles that we didn’t ask for and also tonic instead of lemonade. We where then seated for food as it turned into a bigger disaster. The starters was awful and as for the mains piece of meat on the plate and no sides is not a great dining experience at all. We didn’t even get told we needed to order sides when we ordered. My steak was meant to be medium to rare and it was well done. My boyfriend never touched his ribs. The kitchen staff were on their phones and looked bored and considering they are on view to the customers it was a really terrible look. The atmosphere felt awkward. The manager could apologise anymore than he did and he didn’t charge us for the food and got us a complimentary drink and cake which was nice but we were hungry and not happy. overall we will never return again.

The food is top notch, the atmosphere lively and entertaining, however, given the open kitchen concept we came away strongly smelling of smoke and the aromas of the cooked food. Still would strongly recommend this restaurant. Its a must visit for me when in London.

Had an absolutely lovely time, the food was perfect and melted in your mouth, the service was cheerful and very attentive to me and my other half, the seats were very comfortable, everything was immaculately clean and the bathrooms were clean, spacious and had some of the best smelling hand wash I've used outside of home. All together it was just a very pleasant experience and I would happily visit again.

Sehr schöne Location mit offenem Feuer. Das Essen war sehr schmackhaft und das Fleisch auf den Punkt gebraten. Das Ambiete war nicht sehr leise, jedoch nicht störend. Das Restaurant werde ich gerne weiterempfehlen. Ein Besuch im Sophie's Steakhouse lohnt sich auf jedenfall.

The food and drink and the atmosphere were great. But the service was not up to standard. We ordered starters and mains. When our mains arrived first, we enquired about our starters. Our waiter just said, "it didn't go through". No apologies at all. He said it with a tone of obvious and was completely unhelpful. We didn't want to be served cold rib eye steaks so we said we would cancel our steaks. When the bill came it listed out one rib-eye and one rump. We questioned about it, the same waiter questioned us back accusingly, "you sure you ate two ribeyes?". We ordered two ribeyes with him, the server that put down the food said two ribeyes. We are not expert in differentiating steak, it did not occur to us have to question the server, we trusted the waiter had put the right order through, and the server bought the right food and named the dishes correctly. The waiter then took the bill off the table with a gesture and stormed off to had it corrected. It was a joint birthday celebration and he put a damper on the night. Not sure I would go back. But the food is good and the bar service was good, so I would recommend to friends based on that, and wish them luck not to be served by that particular waiter.

Quite overpriced for the value, you have to order sides to the steak and they cost 4-6 pounds each so ended up paying over a hundred pounds bill for 2 people. Overall, food quality was good, but not great.

We really enjoyed the food, in particular the sirloin steak and the crispy squid, and the cocktails were fabulous! Unfortunately it did take us rather a long time to be served once we were seated and service for drinks / the bill was very slow between courses as well. The location is great and the vibe inside is very cool. Would definitely return despite the slow service this time round.

Big roast dinners were the highlight of our visit to Sophie’s. The wait staff were very friendly and the decor really interesting. The place had a nice vibe and service was quick. A couple of us had dietary requirements and the staff were really knowledgeable about what we couldn’t and couldn’t have - there were plenty of options.
