We had tried to go to C C 's for a celebratory dinner and their wait was 90 min at 5:30 on a Sat night. We 'settled' for Sophia's and was pleasantly surprised. The calamari was average. I prefer a lighter batter. The tenderloin tapas was excellent and the crab cakes were very good. The serving portion was good. The... More

There were many options of Italian food and tapas from the Spanish spectrum. Service was good, our dishes were great, and their famous dessert was unbelievable!

We visited Sophia's for a family dinner. One of us had the baked shrimp and angel hair pasta and became ill a couple hours after eating it. I had the three-mushroom penne - it was heavy, overcooked and unremarkable - and I didn't detect three mushrooms. My husband had the ravioli with three cheeses and reported that it was similarly...

I have eaten at Sophia's several times, and the food is consistently good. We had a nice waitress. However, I spent $15 on an entree and ate about 1/3 of it. I asked for a "to go box." They pack the food for you. Upon return the waitress dropped my entree and it spilled out onto the floor. At no... More

I took a guest to this restaurant because the hotel where I was staying recommended it for a “nice” upscale place. However I was very disappointed. I had pasta and meatballs which they proceeded to cook to within an inch of its life. An Italian restaurant overcooking the pasta is just a sin in my opinion. I shouldn’t have to... More

Was invited to Sunday Brunch and our group of 5 plus an 18 mo old was very pleased with the service and quality of the fare. Our waitress was most accommodating as we were able to order a dinner item, and a kid's meal along with our brunch items. All were excellent, including the kid's chicken nuggets (I snuck a... More

With only one night in during my semi-annual visit to Columbia, Sophia's wasn't my first choice. Or second. Or third. Okay, it was not even on the list. But it wasn't my choice. However, my interest was piqued when I learned Sophia's is a sister restaurant to Addison's - one of my new favorite Columbia dining spots. And Sophia's didn't... More

We have been coming to Sophia's for 10+ years and while it has changed somewhat and the portions of decreased in size, we still enjoy the atmosphere on a Friday night (loud) or the family vibe for Sunday brunch. While the seafood can be quite good, it is by far the most unpredictable. The beef fillet and Patchwork Farm's pork... More

Used to be one of my favorites, in Columbia, but due to recently diagnosed food allergies, in tolerances, and food sensitivities there's very little on their menu for someone who has celiac disease or lactose intolerance to eat. For example they offer and excellent ginger brined pork chop, however, They pair that dish with a creamy polenta, which is gluten... More

This is a wonderful restaurant. It is not to large, just the right size. It has an old world charm with a happy vibe. We always enjoy the whole experience when we go. Our child even likes to go there. She enjoys the selection on the child's menu. The Brandy Cream Filet with Rosemary Potatoes is my favorite. Every time... More
