Good food. Slow service. Our waitress somehow changed after we ordered our appetizers and no one attended to us after to ask our main course, we had to call to ask if we can order. We ordered a bottle of wine and always had to ask to get refilled ‘cuz they put the bottle away. I ordered shrimp to put as an extra in my pesto pasta but when it came, it didn’t have it so I was the only one in my table to have to wait for my food while rest of the guests in my table didn’t want to eat without me so their food was getting cold. I would NOT recommend to come here for good service unless you know someone in the staff ‘cuz that seems to be the only people they paid attention to.

Our “go to” restaurant in Yorkville area. Great food, nice outdoor patio and great ambiance. Wine list is good. Pricing is a little more than you might expect but well worth it.

Unfortunately it wasn’t a good experience this time! The service was slow & the food not up to standard.

I’ve been a few times before & it was a lot better. Not sure I will return again

Had an amazing birthday dinner at Sofia. The food was absolutely immaculate and the service was beyond expectations! Our server Dawn absolutely spoiled us, made sure we were always rolled up, well fed, and offered to take pictures of us several times throughout the night. She was so attentive and personable she made us feel so welcome! The food and ambiance always blows me away at Sofia and last night was no exception. Can’t recommend this spot enough for a tucked away gorgeous patio in Yorkville with the best food in the city!

The ambience was great and the food was fine. However, our first time experience was completed detracted by the rude and poor service! When we sat down, we ordered our food. My friend was not feeling great so had ordered a salad. The server responded by asking if that was all she was getting (in quite a tone). Further, our reservation was at 5:15, and industry standard is to allot 2 hours for the reservation. Within an hour of us arriving, our server came to ask if we were done with our food yet. When we said no, she made a comment to us about how we were eating slowly ... She then came around again later (still within the two hours of our reservation) saying “you ladies have for to be done now as you haven’t touched your food”. That was extremely rude and unnecessary. To put the cherry on top, there was NO one or line waiting to be seated for a table as we went on a Sunday evening, so the rudeness to hurry us up was completely unnecessary as we were still eating. Based on the service, I would not return or recommend this restaurant.

Its always a pleasure enjoying one of Charles Restaurant all I can say is he has trained his staff to make you feel like a million bucks and if you didn't feel that experience its not the restaurant its because you are not meant to eat out sit home and have your beer LOL

One of the first restaurants we booked after lockdown was lifted and we’re so happy we did . We came here for brunch and ordered the Lobster Benny and the Pancakes with Berries . They did not decorate our cocktails with orchids this time, which we thought added a nice touch, like they did previously, but overall everything was as good as we remembered from the last time we dined just before lock down last year.

Round of applause to the kitchen and front-of-house staff for an amazing dinner!

Some rust was evident, but the staff's determination to do their best shone through.

It was hard to get four courses in under the 2-hr limit, but I accept responsibility for my menu selections (everything was just so good, I would have had six if we had the time).

There were other tables with people who made no effort to meet their table-time -- very rude and I felt badly for the staff trying to navigate the situation.


Thanks so much for such a wonderful anniversary dinner. We'll be back well before the next one rolls around.

Can’t say enough good things about this place, great service, great atmosphere. We had a great evening on the back patio and weren’t rushed out. Slightly pricey but worth it. The food was delicious.

My husband and I were celebrating our Anniversary. Considering we have been in lockdown for months, we were quite excited about getting out. We were not disappointed. Our server Calvin was amazing. She really made our dining experience that much more enjoyable. The oysters and branzino were very fresh along with the homemade pasta and burrata. Overall a lovely setting in the middle of it all. Would definitely go back
