On a recent weekly "mother/daughter bonding/dining" nite, we went to Sofra. I was pleasantly surprised by the chicken rotisserie style with vegies. An entire half of a chicken with heaps of roasted vegies over red-skinned potatoes, delicious! I appreciated the quantity, enough to take home a portion, and the flavor was perfect. It's still hard to find a real vegetable... More

We lived in Madison for many years and moved a few years ago. We had lunch at Sofra during our visit and were pleased that the food and service were as great as we remembered. Definitely recommend if you are in the Middleton area.

I just completed a tour of the National Mustard Museum down the block and I was famished. There were several dining options around so I used my smartphone to help me decide. It recommended Sofra and instantly the thought of Albanian cuisine piqued my interest. For appetizers the Albanian sausages were a delicious blend of ground beef, lamb and spices.... More

One of my favorite entrees at Sofra is the Albanian Qebap Platter with their Albanian sausages. Always excellent and a unique dish in Madison. Another tip: try the house soup! It's something you'll want to drink, it's so tasty. Second tip: Skip the dessert - they've been disappointing (just go to Hubbard for great pie).

I visit the Madison area a lot and have close family members that live in the area. I had been wanting to try out some different restaurants and... More

A good place to go and talk. We went for lunch. I had a bistro burger which is lamb and beef which was juicy and tasty. The fries were very good and were crisp and crunchy. My wife had an artichoke chicken panini and it was also very good. The menu has interesting choices with a greek flavor to them.... More

I went here for a tasty meal and a good drink and got both! First time at an Albanian restaurant; it had the typical Mediterranean fare and some Albanian specialties as well. Everything was delicious and cooked to perfection. I would definitely recommend it and return!

Sofra's is a very nice place for breakfast; especially on week-ends. Recently they offered a pesto chicken skillet special that was excellent.
