    The food was delicious! only issue was service was a bit slow, due to there being more than one server for our table. We had a few items that didn’t show to the table and had to remind the wistress we never received the item. Instead of apologizing she just explained that she wasn’t the only one serving the table , the other server was lovely and the atmosphere was great! Overall great experience.

    The food is not the same quality as I am used to at this restaurant. The quality of the food has diminished. The chips were undercooked. The tacos I had were super salty. It was 80 for tacos, chips, and wine, which is pretty expensive for what you get. The service was pretty good to start and then was non existent when we were trying to leave. And as the bar got busy. Was a little disappointing. It used to be so good, and used to have so many varieties of food on the menu.

    Great menu; love the tapas-style of sharing plates. Salmon tostada and swordfish ceviche were very good. Initial service was funny with one server yawning when asked for non-alcoholic bevvy choices; probably just needed a nap. I get it; we all do :) Overall, great first experience there and looking forward to returning with friends. Kudos!

    Food was fantastic, as usual, and we had great service from Melanie! I love how Bar Sofia is so accommodating with dietary needs, such as vegan and gluten free. Love it!

    disappointing experience. drinks and atmosphere as always were really nice! food was good but service was ultimately upsetting. Came back for our anniversary after having our first date here, and even though it was written in our reservation, we werent even wished a happy anniversary and sat at a crowded table beside loud groups. Service took quite a while for the low capacity of guests in the restaurant, and the care/standard just wasnt there. really upset we had such a poor experience for our first anniversary and would not pick this for another celebration again.

    Food is over priced and boring. Especially after 3rd visit in 2 years. Probably won’t be back
