    It was a Superb Saturday night! The place was buzzing with weekend's flare pumped by cool DJ notes. Pasta alla vodka was our main target but we couldn't resist carpaccio and tuna for the appetizer; the later has surprised us with gooseberries that accented elegant freshness. Beautifully grilled ribeye and veal Milanese, with sides broccolini and to-die-for Brussel sprouts, made the eve; and we took all leftovers. There was a small accident with some grease getting onto a shirt, and the way it was positively handled speaks volume about the establishment. Thank you all, Janine led the service team with an amazing cast, Zia as a conductor, simply amazing - we came for dinner that turned into a Saturday Night Fever celebration :)

    Sofia is the symbol of cosmopolitan ambiance and excellence! Every dish, from pasta ala vodka to branzino and wagyu carpaccio were perfectly done; never mind fresh oysters! Zia and his team were on the ball; despite a sold-out crowd, the service was impeccable. We did share all appetizers and now Olga wants to go back and have them to herself.. To sad, there were no grilled fungi we tried before, hope it will get back on the menu. Lastly, about the ambiance - second to none.

    Worth the drive from Oakville…. Moet by the glass & 2 of the best brunch items ever…. Truffle eggs/potatoes & brioche french toast. Cocktails were top notch down to our espresso & latte… Server was outstanding too, timely & not intrusive.

    Our server was ok. She might have been better if the bar was properly staffed. Drink times were 30+ min. It is what it is.. too bad no manager came by to appreciate our business and patience. I would still go back. Food, ambiance and overall experience was still worth it.

    We went to celebrate our engagement at Sofias. Honestly we had a great time overall, we were however a little disappointed by the food. We come from Montreal and are really spoiled with incredible restaurants…. The cocktail shrimp was too cooked, the oysters were way too small, we even had one that was empty because it was so small, and my husband’s tomato pasta was alright. Nothing spectacular. My meal, the hamachi and Gorgonzola pasta was quite good. The service was excellent, the ambiance perfect for the occasion. And they did make us feel special and offered us a special desert to celebrate us. A solid 4 star for us!

    First time at Sofia’s to celebrate my birthday with 2 other friends. The service was consistent & pleasant. The decor & atmosphere was very elegant & posh. I thoroughly enjoyed everything we ordered, the food was spectacular in my opinion! We ordered the shrimp cocktail & buratta for apps, they both were fresh & delicious. For our mains, we had the agnolotti mushroom pasta which I loved, the cornish hen, which I was told was also good, broccolini, brussel sprouts & these potatoe cubes as sides…all were fantastic! Would definitely go again 😋😋

    We had a good time for my dad’s birthday. Food was good, the place was gorgeous. However, we only heard of the Sunday deals AFTER we had ordered our meals, when we overheard another server beside us going through the 1/2 price Sunday menu items with their table. I would have liked for our server to tell us about this special. Secondly, there were several moments where we had empty dishes and drinks sitting on our table for 10+ minutes. Third, our desserts took really long to arrive. All in all, I enjoyed the experience, though it’s tainted by knowing that our server wanted to make more money off of our table rather than let us know about 1/2 price items which would lower her tip amount.

    The octopus was cooked to perfection. The wild boar bolognese pasta was good but nothing to write home about. It didn’t feel al dente. My friend had the spaghetti and she enjoyed her main dish better. IG: mansafx

    The food was outstanding... but I would never go back. The music volume was so extreme that it was impossible to have a conversation without leaning into the table and speaking just a few inches away from the person across from me. I asked if it could be turned down a little, but to no avail.

    Food was excellent but thirty minutes into our dinner they had music (live band and then DJ) that was so loud my guest and I could not speak or hear each other. It was terrible and ruined the entire evening. Guest were complaining and asking for the volume to be lowered. We requested as well and wait-staff agreed it was loud but nothing was done. I will never return nor recommend to anyone. Awful experience. Shame because the food was very good.

    Hi guys. I had a great time at Sofia last night. The spaghetti, veal and zeppole was amazing. It was great meeting Kaitlin. She did a great job as a hostess. Very friendly. Jasmine did a perfect job as waitress. Attended to my every need at the table. Great seeing Amy hold down the fort. She leads with a smile and always does a great job. Will definitely be returning soon for dinner. Anthony.
