Fabulous cocktails, food & atmosphere!

Beautiful patio & elegant restaurant. Original cocktails! Good service! Appetizers that are big enough for a meal, and very good quality. I'm looking forward to visiting this restaurant again and again. We didn't order any dinner items, so I will next time we come back...

This was the best place we ate in Santo Domingo. This excellent restaurant was reasonably well priced considering it is at the fine dining end of the market. The food was outstanding with a great choice. The portions were large and I would consider two starters next time as the helpings were so generous. The staff were well trained and... More

Great for a romantic night out or with a big table of friends, a more tasteful clientele than other places I have experienced. Reasonable value, consistent friendly service and it has been around for some time now. Recommended.

Came for dinner without reservation and was promptly seated. It is a chic restaurant in a residential area. They have indoor and outdoor eating space. The servers are very helpful. The food here is very good. There is nothing on the menu that you can say bad things. Everything was tasteful and well presented. They have a good wine list... More

We visited this place with my wife for St. Valentine's... what an experience!! Decor and atmosphere are unique and the dishes superb. We shared a few appetizers and entrees (the lamb and the crab are a must) and they were incredibly fresh and tasty. We are from Miami and I wish we had a spot like this one around here!... More

As always, no words to describe my experience at Sohias Bar & Grill.. The ambience fabulous, service impeccable and most important food was out of this world, thanks to head chef Joaquin Renovales... We had a wonderful evening and dinner and for sure will be back soon to continue tasting Joaquin's amazing dishes.... Alberto

Sophia's came highly recommended and it absolutely lived up to its reputation. That said, whomever posted that this is a "$$" restaurant with menu items from $0-$10 has obviously never been!! Enough said on that. Any restaurant that doesn't post menu prices is one that implies that you should look for experience, not value. Enough on that...only to say that... More

This is the second time for me in this restaurant but this time for lunch. It was less crowded compared to dinner but still very well patronized. Room temperatue should be adjusted because it is too cold inside. The interiors look very elegant and service is impeccable.
