“Good atmosphere and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Sophia's has gone through several changes during the last several years, but the owners continue to do an excellent job with the decorations, ambiance, and food presentation. The food is very good and they have a large selection of wines and other specialty drinks, including a la carte Gins.
If you happen to be in Santo Domingo and are looking for a good restaurant, make sure you put Sophia's on your list. Keep in mind that it is international cuisine and prices aren't cheap.

“Not impressed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

The food was not very good and the drinks were way overpriced. Would skip it altogether unless you want a see and be seen place with unimpressive, uninspired food.

“One of the best options in S.D.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

Good menu selection, specially Italian dishes.

Good wine selection but overpriced, as drinks are.

Overall, duly recommended.

“Place to see and be seen”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

Had dinner with some colleagues on a Wednesday night. Good thing that we had a reservation because the place was packed. People were still arriving even after 11 pm. The restaurant had a very high end feel. Food was also great. One thing though is that they had only 1 men's room so you had to line up . People there are very fashionable so try to dress it up a bit if you are planning to have dinner.

“Decent”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

The food is quite tasty, and the prices are ok. Drinks are significantly over priced, especially the wine list. The design of the restaurant is ok, but nothing special. Servers are attentive, but the general feeling is that if you are not a local or a regular customer you will be treated with indifference. When ordering the check, expect a good 15 minute delay while they go chop down a tree to make the paper
