Sofra has amazing dishes. We had a large party in the basement where we all shared the dishes. The feta dip was a hit among everyone, and each unique dish was better than the last. The service in the wine cellar was superb, and the owner/chef even came down to say hello. Best dining experience I've had. I highly recommend... More

Sofra never disappoints. From their flavourful appetizers and entrées upstairs to the unique meze plates downstairs there is always something delicious to try. Service is always great and their wine list is perfect! Sofra is a must try restaurant in downtown Edmonton.

Had the pleasure of dinning at Sofra and was fortunate enuf to choose the wine cellar in the basement when I called for a reservation! The cellar is quaint and conveniently equipped with its own bar and restroom! There's even a little alcove with a low sofa and several low tables to curl up on (think girls night out!). The... More

Group of 35 of us in the cellar - what a great evening. Service was outstanding food was delicious (and kept coming) and very well presented family style at tables. Location was great and the Cellar Room was both private and nicely set up for a group. I can't wait to go back with my wife and try the menu... More

Most of the items are made from scratch. The home made humus and pita chips are a must. Stuffed dates were sublime but the star was the steak, so tender and covered with a bold diced tomato and oil with exquisite spices. The owners pride shows through in the menu, and as a diner, you win. Can't wait to go... More

Six of us had a great meal at this Turkish restaurant. What I liked most about it was the fact that there was Turkish music being played in the background. We ordered a variety of dips to go along with pita bread. Two of us had their Sultan platter allowing us to experience a variety of food. The service was... More

Delicious, authentic Turkish food. The bulgar was like nothing I've tried before, and the meats were tender. Dessert was also great. We will return!

We have visited this restaurant several times, and have always been impressed with its authentic Turkish cuisine. This visit was no exception. As with previous visits, the service was great, and the food done to perfection. We began with the mixed appetizers, and were impressed with the variety that was served- two servings were ample for the five of us.... More
