My wife and I had dinner at Sophia's recently and we may have just found a new favorite. We had read good reviews and decided to try it. We went in early (5pm) on a Saturday to beat the possible rush after the Mizzou-Arkansas football game. I wish we had come a little earlier as there was a good group... More

Sophia's used to be our go-to neighborhood restaurant. No longer. The menu has not changed in years, the current management does not honor requests for "reservations" when we have clear agreement with them that we will have X number of people at Y hour, and is often downright surly if we question them. No longer a pleasant place to eat... More

Had a group of women that meet regularly, and so had several different items. All seemed good, lovely service, good conversation. We were seated under a speaker, which we will change for the next time.

We love this restaurant for a start to date night sometimes. One of our faves. A local establishment, this mid-priced restaurant is located on the south side of town, a little out of the way. It's very easy to get there, however. The service is wonderful and the menu is incredibly diverse. Everything we've tried has been fabulous. The wait... More

This was my first trip to Sophia's. Many of the women in our family came to Columbia for the weekend to shop. We were a large group - about 14 of us and although they were very busy, our wait was minimal and the staff was accommodating. Our server was attentive and kind. The food selection seemed good and I... More

The menu delivers real quality in dining. The calamari fritti was about the best I have ever had, and it included whole baby squid, like I found only in Spain and Italy. While the crab cakes were okay - sort of bland - the blue cheese topped filet tapas was outstanding. My wife's Salmon paillard was truly delicious, and my... More

We enjoyed a nice family dinner at this place, they serve nice salads and good food. The staff is friendly and the service is good. We had a great time and each of us could order something they preferred. So good place to take friends or family.

I have been to Sophia's numerous times and it has always been great food. It is also an enjoyable atmosphere. Whether it is a date with my wife, a family brunch, or a team meeting, we have had great service. Most of the portions are perfect. Occasionally there has been a few items at lunch that were smaller than expected.... More

Had our dining out group meet at Sophia's last week. Handicapped parking was limited and I parked around the corner in front of another restaurant. No curb cutaways so I had to ride my scooter in the parking lot to entrance. Double doors but the hostess opened both sets for me. Our group of 5 were seated very comfortably. The... More
