    Terrific food in a nice environment. The only downside was that the service was slow. When we did receive service it was great, they just appeared understaffed. I would for sure go back as the food was outstanding.

    Everything was excellent, the drinks, food and service! I did find it too loud, it was hard to have a conversation being so close to the next table. Loved the style, colour and again the service was excellent! We will definitely be back in the summer!

    We came to Bar Sofia for brunch on a gift from Bar Sofia to rewrite a bad experience. To our shock, this experience was worse!! Our reservation was 12pm. I receive a coffee at 12:30pm and asked for milk, at 12:45 I had to go to the bar and ask for the milk as my coffee was getting cold. Waitress came back later and stated she was in training. Manager came by and brought the milk. We actually laughed at our poor this new experience was. It was freezing cold inside. We were giving $50 gift card and used $40 but we will never be returning. It’s a shame. The place should be a bar and a bar only

    A must! We ended up having 2 extra people and they were very accommodating. Food was delicious. Service was outstanding, the manager came over to check on us as well. Very beautiful spot and will definitely be coming back!

    For a dinner bill of $65 dollars per person, my recommendation is don’t waste your money. The grilled chimichicken did make up in quantity what it lacked in flavor. Equally lacking in flavor were the crispy cod tacos. If you want to try Bar Sophia and leave satisfied, go for the avocado tortilla chips & churros and leave it at that. Sorry Bar Sophia…you need to up your flavor game.
