Mother's Day bruhcn

Sophia's has a Sunday morning brunch that opens at 10 am but they opened at 9 am on Mother's day. We arrived around 10 am and was told there would be a wait for two of us of about 20 minutes. So we ordered a drink at the bar, their Mimosas were excellent with plenty of champagne and just a... read 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

Ok, I have never had a bad meal at Sophia's. I especially like the Horseradish Encrusted Salmon. If I had any complaint, it would be that they seem a little stingy on the asparagus side. You MUST try their Italian Nachos!

Loved the wide selection of brunch options. The majority of selections were breakfast items. The service was ok, not great. The food was excellent. Were told that there would be a 45 minute wait and we waited only 14 minutes. This is poor schedule management. We were amazed that we were called so quickly, but some families would walk away...

After reading reviews of various non-chain restaurants in Columbia, we decided to give Sophia's a try. We were not disappointed. The staff was friendly and the food tasty.

Sophia's used to be our favorite "special" place in Columbia. However, after last night's dinner, we will be looking for a new spot. We had the baked mushrooms for an appetizer--there was SO much cheese (swimming), that we couldn't really find or taste the mushrooms. We then had the special (2 pork tenderloin medallions with mashed potatoes and asparagus). We... More

I usually love Sophia's. Many previous trips have made it a staple. Great food, atmosphere, usually good service. Yesterday I went during Brunch, which is usually delightful. Our server was less than enthusiastic, slow, and forgetful; although pleasant. We ordered coffee and a cocktail, monkey bread, smoked chicken empanadas, and house breakfast cassarole. The monkey bread, as the menu warns,... More
