Granted it was restaurant week, but I made a reservation and still waited a good 45 minutes with empty tables staring me in the face. Ate at five other places for RW and did not wait at ONE. "Entertainment" was too loud and sounded terrible. Hostess is VERY RUDE. Do yourself a favor and drive a couple more blocks to... More

Sofia's is a beautiful restaurant with Mediterranean décor and an intimate ambiance. It has a relaxing vibe which adds to the experience. We had dinner during Restaurant Week. The menu offered a number of choices. We started with the mixed baby greens...nice size, tasty vinaigrette. The roasted beet and goat cheese was very good. The braised lamb shank with orzo... More

I have been coming here for years. The food is the best and the service is awesome. It has a great bar and vibe for late night and a great room up stairs as well as roof top bar when its warmer out. go here at least once a month.

Went here last minute with no reservation on a Saturday night, so they got an extra point for being so accomodating. We chose to sit at the bar even though they had a table, which was shocking being that it was in the middle of the dinner rush and seemed crowded. The bartender was quick and on top of things,...

On a warm night in the roof garden with friends, this is the place to be. Great food, attentive service, and very decent wines. Our party of eight shared a variety of appetizers. Favorite was the eggplant salad. Top entrees were the flame roasted half chicken and the moussaka. Too full for deserts. This was our second visit, but it... More

The title says it all, there are very few restaurants left anywhere that are as good as Sofia's. The atmosphere is incredible, there is not a bad seat in the house, but the food is what keeps me going back. I have been there half a dozen times or so and never had a bad meal, or even tasted a...

We walked in and had a drink at the bar. It was big and not overly crowded. The restaurant was, but we were seated promptly according to our reservation. Food was great. I prefer their mezzes to their fried cheese appetizer. Fish was fresh and everyone in our group enjoyed their meal. Seems pretty authentic to Mediterranean cuisine.

Had one of the worst dining experiences at Sofia's. Six of us had 8:30 reservations for Saturday night. Arrive a little after 8 for drink at bar. We are not seated until 9:15 for dinner, only after two of the women complained to owner. We order our meals pretty quick, since we are hungry at this point. Salads/appetizers served normal... More
