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.

Had a reservation for a very important occasion for a group of 15 people at 7pm, and "oh surprise"...the reservation was on books but nothing was prepared! The whole group had to wait for 30 minutes to be located and seated! The service was very impersonal and they never cared to make the dinner to be a good experience! Of... More

Not to make a long story, I just want to mention that I have never experienced such a disgusting service experience, from the fact that reservation was not honored, going through lack of service to not receiving even an excuse, and finally pulled out from the place. For sure, not coming back and not recommending this "restaurant".

Best food in Santo Domingo and the brownie dessert was absolutely off the charts. Amazing wine list and perfect ambiance.

I am a patron of Sophias since day 1. I have visited the establishment more than 185 times in a span of 8 years, and it simply does not cease to amaze me! The quality and taste, the texture, the emotions that the food brings to life, makes every visit an adventure.

Not only the best food we have had in Santo Domingo, but one of the best culinary experiences I have ever had in my life! And being Italian, it means something! I was there last night with my son, young friends and with Oliver Stone and his wife, and they loved everything we ate too! From the tuna filets served... More

This is our second visit to the DR and our second visit to this restaurant. The first time we came, we were impressed with the place, the food but not with the service. This time was worst, I ordered a tenderloin that was overcooked and very salty so I returned it. I ordered the bacalao instead, but this dish was... More

A friend of mine has told me that I SHOULD try Sophía's. As I'm very confident on my friend's taste, my wife and I went there to dine last Friday. We found a great place, in the heart of the upper Santo Domingo. The decoration, the background music, the general climate are carefully selected and combined to build up the... More

Once I figured out that SBG and Sophia's (local name) were the same thing dinner was easy to arrange. Menu is Italian based but there are many choices from each food group. The service is pretty spot on. Most of the staff is bi-lingual but not all. Regardless the attentive floor manager steps in to translate effortlessly when needed. I... More
