    Tonight was our first time to Sofia. The cocktails, service and ambiance were all good. The food was just ok. For 3 adults and 2 small children, the bill was $300 and nothing that really blew our minds. They charged $21 for kids penne pasta with butter and two small chicken strips on it. Wish I could say we would come back because it’s a cool spot, but food is not worth the price.

    Had an absolutely delicious meal at Sofia’s! Bar is expansive and the drinks were generously poured (and tasty!). The food was divine. We enjoyed everything, with the highlights being the spanikopita, tzatziki, baklava, and the branzino stuffed with crab cake (a special). Our server Maria was amazing! Personable, attentive, and fun! She even brought Sofia herself to meet us. It was a fantastic night. We will definitely be back!

    Food was very average especially for the price. We got the dip platter for 5 at$25 and you got about 3 tbsp of each dip. Ripoff. No ability to substitute vegetables. Lamb chops were overly charred.

    We were a bit disappointed with the restaurant. The roasted chicken and salmon lacked flavor. The spanakopita was very good and the crab cakes and Branzino were good. The service was excellent though.

    My bronzino was the best I ever had anywhere!!! All 4 of us enjoyed what we we ordered. We tried the fire roasted shrimp, lollipop lampchops and a salad appetizers and all were delicious. The other people in my party had veal and swordfish which they equally loved as I did my bronzino. I have food allergies so ordered sorbet and coffee for dessert while they splurged on chocolate cake and coffee drinks with whipped cream. Our waitress Nicole was excellent as was the server who helped her (sorry I forget her name) as was the adorable hostess with the long pretty hair who sat us so from start to finish it was a beautiful and delicious night thanks to Sophia’s safe outdoor seating. . We will be back soon that’s for sure!!!

    We went here for a girls night out. Our reservation was for 8:15 we probably sat closer to 8:30. As soon as we sat we were talking the waiter asked us if we were ready to order to be honest we hadn’t even looked at the menu. The food was delicious everything came out great but they were literally shutting the lights around us to make us leave. The waiter didn’t even ask us if we wanna coffee or dessert he just gave us the check. We were just catching up on some things so we decided to sit between the outside door and the inside door where they have a little sitting area. The woman who I assume is a manager came out and asked us if we were waiting for an Uber….kind of made us feel uncomfortable so we left. It was very rushed and not cheap. Next time we go out I will make sure we go to one of the other restaurants that has a little bit of a later crowd. By 10 o’clock they wanted us gone.

    We ordered food/drinks for $350 for a table of 2 and noted that we are celebrating double birthday in our reservation but even this was not enough to get the expected service for the price range. We ordered $100 Moët and Chandon bottle and oysters to start with but first came the saganaki (hot appetizer that is set on flame in front of you). This was done on empty table before even getting our water. The cheese got cold until we got to it. The waitress was not informed by the hostess that we are celebrating birthday but at least she asked if there is any occasion. However, it is noted for a reason in the reservation and they should communicate. We finished 3 of the appetizers and the octopus was still not served which was the 4th appatizer. The waitress asked if we want to cancel it bc the kitchen missed it and we said no because we specifically go there for the octopus. Than she asked if it is okay to bring the entrees now too which would indicate the main course is ready to be served. We said no because we wanted to enjoy the octopus. Than she said no problem I will bring it after. I said it is a problem bc I don’t want the food to dry up. I asked to cancel one of the entrees because we were already full at this point. She said she needs to check with the kitchen if they started to prepare it when it was already indicated it is ready to be served. She also argued that hot appetizers are ok to be served before the oysters. Than she came back and started to give us an attitude and explained that they already started to cook it so it can’t be canceled. We managed to cancel the branzino at the end bc I didn’t want to eat cold fish for breakfast or trash it. The steak looked prepared to medium as requested but it was very dry due to staying on the line for a long time or being reheated. There was literally no juice and I specially said that I don’t want $42 dry steak. The worst thing was the manager. He/she was informed of the issue but never came to our table….

    Our experience at Sofia's was excellent. This was the first time we had eaten there so we really didn't know what to expect but it had been recommended by friends so we made reservations. From the decor, to the attention of the staff, to the service of our waitress, to the choice of menu items and quality of the food it was beyond our greatest expectations. Briefly it was the best experience we've had in recent memory. I highly recommend it !

    1st visit to Sophia's for my daughters 28th b-day. Let me empathize that being in the industry we have experienced top shelf to subpar meals. Wife said her scallops were spot on. My crab cakes not so. Claw meat at its best. Daughters fiancee had the filet. Not cooked as requested. Daughter had the gnocchi. Average gnocchi. Most disappointing was the desert. Chocolate lava cake. Very dry. Service was very good along with atmosphere. Will try the happy hour next time as recommended by work associates.

    Delicious apps! The setting is lovely though the tables are closer together than they should be for Covid. I requested a roof top table for 2 and they only offered the high top bar table. There were 2 table set for 4 that never filled while we were there though. The servers were rushed though very kind and helpful.
