First off.... I was seated at a table outside and wasn't given any drink menu. I had to call the Male waiter over for it and when I said I didn't want water, as my guest were coming in less than 5mins, he gave a weird reaction. Interesting. I booked the reservation through Open table and clearly asked for the Bar in the notes, as I specifically planned to come for the 5-8 drink specials (For the BAR), which is clearly advertised on the Sofia Website and on Instagram.

My guests arrived, and we asked to move into the bar, and not only asked the Male waiter, also the woman who led us to the bar and our waitress about the drink specials. They said yes it was in the bar. I also clearly asked if all cocktails and wines were half, and was told YES. We get the bill and one glass of wine was charged at full price, the waitress refused to rectify the situation, so I told my guest not to to and I left a tips for my and my partners bill.

I work in the area at a 5star establishment and will definitely will not be recommending my clients/guests or personal friends to an establishment that lies and doesn't train their staff correctly. How embarrassing on your behalf.

Great vibe. Sat at the bar with a friend for a great catch up dinner. Octopus was outstanding (must be tried). Pricey, so it's a special place to go. But if you're signing up for that level of dinner you won't be disappointed.

Our birthday celebration dinner was for a party of 5 at 9:45 pm.
our food was not delivered to our table till 11:45 pm, (2 hours later) even though they were very apologetic and our waitress was friendly and fantastic , I am not sure if I want to have pasta at mid night?! or after waiting for two hours for our food and the huge gap between appetizer and main dish...

They did not charge us for the food since it was delivered so late, but by the time the food came we were over it and just wanted to leave.
not a great experience.

It’s my 3rd visit to Sofia
The food is always fantastic. The vibe at Sofia is very alive and vibrant. It is not a quite place but I actually like that. The only negative review I can say for my last visit was the food took a long time to come not sure if they were short staffed or not. But the management came to us and apologized for the long wait, and also did not charge us for the desert we ordered which was very nice of them. Overall Sofia is fantastic place for good food and great vibe.

Was great until a manager came up and asked us to move to the bar, even though there were tables still available. We were told we had the table until 8:30pm, and it wasn’t even 8:30pm yet

The food is very good, although some of the portions for the price are very small. The service was disappointingly slow for this caliber of a restaurant. The interior is beautiful and the ambiance buzzes with excitement.

Great menu, great sommelier, servers were awesome. I prefer the high tables as you can take in the whole scene but still enjoy an intimate dinner.
I’ll be back to enjoy the outdoor terrace.

We arrived for our reservation and were taken to a table that was immediately in front of the narrow exit of the kitchen. It was plain to see that we would have had every server in the restaurant running narrowly past us all night. We told the hostess that we wanted a different table. There were a number of tables for 4 in the restaurant which would perfectly accommodate us but were told that they were 'reserved', which is strange as we had a reservation which we would have thought fell under that category. We were offered a table in the bar area which was not our first choice but we agreed. Upon being seated we found that we were directly below an overhead vent that was blowing very cold air directly on us. We asked if we could have one of the hightop tables that was available in the bar area. Again, we were told it was reserved. We were told we could wait for the next available table in the bar area and order drinks (not offered to us on the house as some sort of compensation for not providing us with acceptable seating at our reserved time). Will not go back and would definitely recommend the same to anyone interested in going. There are a lot of excellent restaurants in Toronto that look after customers in a way that makes them feel welcome.

The food was delicious! The Milanese Risotto outstanding and the Fritto Misto was so light crispy and tender Seafood. Wine list is extensive and categorized by region and very pricey. We ordered a bottle for $69 which was one of the least expensive bottles. The overall decor is so beautiful but the bar area my fave part of the restaurant as it is quite loud in the dining area.

When I try a new restaurant, I love getting to experience new flavour combinations. The dishes served here exceeded my expectations from the menu descriptions, and everything that was brought to our table was outstanding. The swanky decor and excellent service made this place an experience that I cannot wait to have again!

Amazing ambiance. Delicious food. Comfortable seating. Surprisingly, reasonable price for the area. 5 of us ate with food and drinks for low 300. Only complaints: smelled fishy in the restaurant. They dont know how to make a b52 coffee (the proportions). They fixed it but need to work on it. Would definitely return.

For my first time dining at Sofia, I tried out their Easter brunch. It was fantastic! The service was beyond amazing- this is the type of proactive and non invasive service I would like to experience at every restaurant. The food was amazing and I ended up ordering several meals and sharing as I could not decide between many of the choices. Happy to report every choice was excellent and this was a great way to sample the brunch menu. Thanks to the team at Sofia- I enjoyed my meal with you and will be back.
