The atmosphere was classy but you didnt have to dress up to go there. Seating was inside and out. I would go back for sure. Slightly pricey for luch but spot on flavor!

I was really, really happy with this choice. We got it, the servers struggled with English but found someone who spoke English well. After that everything was perfect. The food was great, the music was great, the environment was great. I would go back in a heartbeat. One of my favorite places to dine anywhere.

It was an unexpected visit so if you plan to go please dress up as its a high end restaurant. Everything in the menu has been planned, arranged, sauced and garnished perfectly. The menu is very varied with lots of Japanese sauce influences. The sommelier Carlos Espino was extremely helpful and the service was perfectly performed We ordered 2 apps... More

I cannot say enough about this amazing restaurant. The chef is brilliant, the service on point, the atmosphere electric. The variety on this ever changing menu is spectacular. Local flavors combined with international classics makes this the absolute number one restaurant in the country. Very rarely does a restaurant's reputation and vibe match its food quality. Sophia's is the exception.... More
