Very Loud

While my Branzino was very good, this restaurant was too loud to enjoy dinner conversation. The waiter proceeded to tell us that Sophia is the best food in Margate and that everything in the menu is great. Then I said I think I'll have the moussaka and he said- oh it's just ok. The Caesar salad was... read more

A tree in the middle of the bar; stone and brick floors and walls; and a wall of "wine". The food was fabulous, the atmosphere transported me to a different time and place. I held my daughter's engagement party here and they placed all the tables together on the second floor so that 24 people all sat together and could... More

Sofia is a large but cozy feeling restaurant where the Margate elite go to eat. Being one of the hoi polloi, I wasn't treated necessarily with the same reverence. One of the female members of our dinner party is friends with and a regular at Sofia. The owner and manager stopped by to chat with her, and when we were... More

Sat outside on the deck for dinner. We had a large group, the waiter was excellent, the staff did an excellent job catering to our needs and the food was absolutely delicious.

What a pleasant surprise! We were drawn here from other reviews on TA. A wonderful authentic Greek meal. Plaka, sea bass, octopus etc. Everything was flavorful and the service was pleasant, helpful and attentive. A nice family run place at decent prices that would cost you 3x the price in NYC.

Visited on 4th of July weekend. They do have a parking lot for their patrons but on a busy weekend prepare to park several blocks away from the restaurant. The restaurant has a beautiful outdoor patio on the second floor. The food was excellent. Three of us had the day's special which was Alaska salmon prepared with a plum sauce... More

Sofia's was a last minute decision for dinner after a long day house hunting on the island. We had heard good things about the restaurant from the local folks we know and decided that we were ready for a fine Greek dining experience. To say the least they did not let us down. Nick was our server and he was... More

We went here for happy hour on a Monday night. We sat at the bar. Bob was one of the bartenders and makes the BEST apple martini! A must try! The happy hour menu was great with many small plates to share. The service was excellent and everyone was very attentive. The food was delicious with a wide variety from... More
