Only unusual issue was an automatic 5 percent gratuity for kitchen staff- can be declined however. Personal opinion is that gratuities in general should be eliminated. Servers and kitchen should be paid better with expectation that service should be good and equal for all patrons- responsibility for good service should be with the restaurant. Newer restaurant groups going with this philosophy.

Good food, excellent, attentive service, nice dining room. Only issue was the noise level was VERY loud. Several tables of loud patrons made conversation difficult, but one really can’t put this on the restaurant. Overall, an enjoyable evening, and our waiter was stellar!

Sofia has become our go to place for family occasions. We have celebrated my son's graduation, our wedding anniversary and now my husband's birthday. They can easily accommodate groups, as well as small an intimate table for a couple.
Our four year old granddaughter has recently been diagnosed with gluten allergy. Our waitress, Kristi, was very helpful with the special accommodations that needed to be done. She was cheerful and professional and made the whole experience wonderful. As did the rest of the staff. Sofia's always has the best staff and great food.

Reasonable steak, daughter's Bolognese was sludgy and overcooked. Price was ridiculous for what it was - I remember why we don't go to this place very often

Made reservations and still needed to wait 15 minutes when we arrived. This is the second time this happened. I might try it one more time. Not really sure yet if I would recommend it again.

We love this place, but bartender seemed new to the game. Will never make it in the big city! 2nd bartender seemed oblivious to customers waiting for service. Bartenders must be faster, especially on a busy night. There should have been a 3rd bartender to supplement the two on duty.

9:15 and no mashed potato's or daily special. On new year's eve? Huh?

We were a party of 7 and for a while had a room to ourselves. Our server was attentive and we never felt neglected. The food was terrific - basic but executed very well. It’s our place to go for celebrations and it will continue to be.

Restaurant is slipping. Brussel sprouts hard, cherry peppers also too hard to eat and seemed to be stuffed yesterday - NOT fresh, scallops over cooked. Wine pours still good thank god!

The servers were so nice. My husbands birthday is Christmas Eve so we went for a birthday dinner with our 9 month old son and they were so sweet to him. The scallops and chicken parm were delicious. Can’t wait to return!

I decided to go to Sofia after I received a recommendation not to bother since the food wasn’t that great however I thought I’d make my own decision and go. My friend (the birthday girl) really liked her meal and dessert, which was most important to me. I ordered the lamb chops however the potato au gratin was flavorless and dry. The wait staff were nice.

We would like to success that you start offering a Gluten Free menu. One of the ladies in our group had a difficult time with the waiter in ordering her food. While they we in discussion I noticed that there was one item on the menu that actually stated Gluten Free, of which she ordered. Too afraid to take a chance with
another item on the menu that the waiter stated they could make for her. I think if you suffer from this disease your very nervous ordering something that isn't on a menu stating Gluten Free.

Did not like the table we were given! Lots of tables empty but we were told that they were reserved, still were empty when we left the restaurant.
My husband loved his meal the special that night was salmon, I did not like my pasta chicken cream dish. The waiter noticed I was not eating and immediately asked if I would like to order anything else. His name is Nicholas and the best waiter ever. He actually made the night fun !! My meal was removed from the check and dessert was on the house because it was my husband's birthday. Will definitely go back as the service was 1st class and perhaps I made a wrong choice for my meal!!

As much as I loved Sophia, I’m sorry to say they were in the weed and cooked my fillet well done. I asked for medium and did not have time to return it based on our babysitter! Our other friend had the salmon and said the same thing. Usually a great place and I was really looking forward to it. I should have mentioned it but the time to get it again wasn’t available so after dinner we had to leave. For our kids! Disappointing.

Valet service - gratuity only. Nice for those cold winter nights and you're not looking for parking. Ambiance is an old Italian style, lots of groups and gatherings. The service was definitely superb, best we've had. Attentive but not overly annoying, food came out in a timely manner. The food was average. We had the calamari. The flavoring is like a sweet chili sauce, delicious. The calamari was good, but you have to REALLY enjoy calamari as it's barely breaded. We had the spinach salad which was good and simple. The waitress placed it on two plates for us to enjoy. I had the seafood fra diavolo. It was a disappointing option. The scallops were overcooked. The pasta was homemade, mushy overcooked and resembled chef boyardee noodles. It was definitely spicy. My husband got the braised short ribs pasta dish and his was better although I felt the pasta was still a little overcooked but not mushy. The bread was warm and yummy. And the cocktails were delicious. Overall I give it a 3/5. I would go back and perhaps try a steak and give it one more try.

There were some ups and downs with food orders being messed up, but they compensated. Overall we feel like we found a great place nearby home to eat.
