Awesome brunch

I like Sophia's more for brunch than I do dinner. It's probably the best brunch in Columbia. They don't take reservations so get there early to avoid a wait. Breakfast pizza and monkey bread are both good options.

I seriously don't know how this restaurant can survive. I guess it's good that it's in a small town because in a city it would go out of business. I went there for brunch and were seated promptly. No problems there, but then we were ignored for 15 minutes. We sat and watched as other customers came in, were seated... More

We ate here with a party of six adult family members. None said they were impressed enough to return. Our dishes were ok, but not really solid. Pizza was more bread then topping. Balsamic vinegar was used too liberally. Most dishes lack a "wow factor" to make them worth the price. Large staff but service was too slow. Manager was... More

Visited last week with our daughter. All of us ordered different items. I had the pizza, daughter had a sandwich with cucumbers. All food was very good. Fine dining experience and reasonable prices for the lunch menu. Nice atmosphere.

My wife and I were there for a surprise birthday party for my uncle. They had the tables ready and had servers promptly seat everyone as they came into the restaurant. The selection was excellent and the quantities very generous. The wait staff was always smiling and engaging conversation during the stay. My wife had the homemade Smoked Chicken Pot... More

It was a wonderful menu with wonderful presentations and flavors... Just wish it wasn't so open and had a little more privacy while dining! Will definitely return!

We were surprised by the attractive surroundings and sophisticated menu. The food was excellent. We wished we lived there so we could go back all the time.

Nice wine list here, and the atmosphere is superb. Service is always good, and I've come here for many a date night. Was just here with friends for a last dinner, and had a great experience. I tried the smoked pot pie this time, which had a whole lot of smoke flavor in it. Lots of food, and tasted incredible.... More

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
