Expertly crafted by mixologist Nishan Nepulangoda, cocktails are enhanced by regional herbs and fresh in-house cordials, and named in tribute to the country’s vast geography and pop culture history. The wine list features many vintages and an extensive selection of true Italian wines rare to the local dining scene.

Perhaps lack of table cloth and a very small bottle of wine were the main constraints.

These all become of COVID-19.

Let's move to the next level.

Thanks,

Lobster panini was very short on lobster and overpriced considering the amount given.
The music was too loud and we had to ask someone a number of times to turn it down.

A bug was in my wine glass which isn’t uncommon for dining outside but what is uncommon was my server heather offering to strain the wine over offering me a new glass. Unacceptable.

The server ADAM was terrible (Tuesday lunch). I waited for an hour and a half with my friend for two entrees and an appetizer (the customers who came after me all got their food) and Adam was demeaning and offensive when I asked politely if the food would be much longer. I had health concerns over the food (the salad was pink because it was old, and others) but Adam never checked on us once after he gave us the food. Would NOT recommend this restaurant or service. Not sure what management is doing hiring servers like him.

Dining at Sofia was an amazing experience. The food was fresh (and delicious) the service was attentive and quick.

Especially considering the current times of COVID-19 they did an excellent job of remaining safe, and giving their clients the full patio experience.

Moreover, the ambience of the place is nicely tucked away from the main area, which adds a secluded but still affluent feature to the meal.

I would highly recommend visiting, even just for some exceptional cocktails.

The first time I ever went to Sofia, the food was a 1 out of 10. This time, it was a 10 out of 10. I think the lockdown was good for them and they brought their A-game!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed dinner here. The food was very nicely prepared/presented and arrived at the appropriate temperature. I’d give our overall experience a solid 10. The lobster pasta and tiramisu were both outstanding. Wait staff were very pleasant and helpful.

They have done a good job with all the Covid measures. The food was by far the best we have had at Sofia (which was pre Covid times). Excellent food! Carpaccio and crudo were delicious.

I truly loved the patio.
However, I was only disappointed with the food, although it tasted amazing, the portions were too small, so it wasn’t as fulfilling as I expected.

My friend came in from out of town and I booked two weeks in advance to sit on the beautiful back patio.

We were greeted and were seated at our table. No one came over. We were there at least fifteen minutes and my friend didn’t like the vibe nor the service. Neither did I. We left the restaurant. There was staff everywhere and no one cared or even noticed. I have been to Sophia many times and I’ve found it has not been the enjoyable dining experience it was like when it first opened.

We went around the corner to Dimmi, no reservation, and we were seated within minutes. Had a great meal, great wine, and the owner and all the staff took great care of us!

Server wasn’t attentive to our table, we had to ask a different server to start our order because we were forgotten about. ( original server continuously walked by us and only checked in on us about 2 times). Other guests that arrived after got served beforehand, and other little things.

We cut our lunch short and left to continue elsewhere.
