I have been here many times and have never ordered the same thing. Everything has always been wonderful. Love the patio being so private. A definite must if you are new to Columbia.

My family wanted to try Sophia's because of the great reviews from this site; we were not that impressed. Desert was the best corse. The cookies and cream gooey cake was to die for but that was about it. My daughters spaghetti came on a paper plate in a frisbee that she could keep. She is 10 and thought it... More

I came on a business trip with 6 other women. They ordered pastas and I got a chicken salad. The chicken salad was very good and the chicken was cooked perfectly. The other lady's pastas looked good too! We even shared the ooey gooey butter cake dessert and it was pretty good. The reason I am not giving them a... More

We ate here on a Saturday night and were surprised to find no wait. The food selection was eclectic and service was excellent. One member of our party was vegetarian and the server quickly corrected a side vegetable dish that included a meat product not listed in the item description. Good choice for varied menu and daily specials.

In an unpretentious building on the South side of town, Sophia offers and eclectic food selection that is consistently good and service is excellent. I often go there with family and friends.

Sophia's is where we go on Friday nights. The service is superb, the food delicious, the atmosphere excellent, the price inexpensive. Nothing else need be said. Be sure to order the Honey-Horseradish encrusted salmon! But go on another night so I don't have have to wait 5 minutes to be seated!

Sophia's is located right on Providence Rd, easy to get to. It has a touch of elegance, but is really great for casual dining. The dishes are prepared to perfection. My favorite on the Tapas menu (before I opted into the vegetarian world) was the Filet Porto - a 4-oz filet topped with bleu cheese and a port wine reduction.... More

This restaurant is overpriced. The food is just ok with small portions. I would have liked a better selection on the menu. The best part of the restaurant was the bar with a nice selection of mixed drinks, wine and beer. Nice atmosphere with outside seating if desired. The staff was friendly.

Went for Sunday brunch, we were the second group to arrive and were sat at a table in the far corner of the restaurant (which looked obviously undesirable). I couldn't make out why this would be the case, no one else was sat by us until the rest of the restaurant was full. Elsewhere in the restaurant there is seating... More
