Sophia’s is one of the "hot" restaurants in Santo Domingo; the place to be "seen", getting more exciting, more of an "in" crowd as the night grows late. Delicious flavors, good service and a very eclectic decoration with areas set-up as traditional restaurant tables, others living room style and an outside terrace for smokers. On the weekends you can feel... More

I was invited to Sophias restaurant for the closure of a business trip. The restaurant is very stylish, and I guess it is trendy at the moment. Very elegant guests filled the tables and probably members from Santo Domingo´s high society :) It was packed, and a bit noisy for my taste though. As a "foodie", amateur chef, and avid... More

Need I say more. They come to your table with a little cart and make your drinks. Have been a few times for drinks and snacks. Pricey, a little over rated, but good enough that I return. And, there's a drink cart!

The rock shrimp appetizer was incredible. We also tried the risotto paella which was delicious, perfect to my taste. This is a pricey place but well worth it. Expect fine dining and a high class atmosphere. Service was decent, could be better. Some tips: Be ready for a 10% mandatory tip and a 15%+ local sales tax added to your... More

This is one of the gems in Santo Domingo. The food is outstanding and the menu covers all the bases. Must try the rock shrimp appetizer, and the Chilean Sea Bass dinner. I try to visit on every trip to DR.

Sophia's has gone through several changes during the last several years, but the owners continue to do an excellent job with the decorations, ambiance, and food presentation. The food is very good and they have a large selection of wines and other specialty drinks, including a la carte Gins. If you happen to be in Santo Domingo and are looking... More

The food was not very good and the drinks were way overpriced. Would skip it altogether unless you want a see and be seen place with unimpressive, uninspired food.

Good menu selection, specially Italian dishes. Good wine selection but overpriced, as drinks are. Overall, duly recommended.

The food is quite tasty, and the prices are ok. Drinks are significantly over priced, especially the wine list. The design of the restaurant is ok, but nothing special. Servers are attentive, but the general feeling is that if you are not a local or a regular customer you will be treated with indifference. When ordering the check, expect a... More
