“Not as good...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

We used to go to Sofia's a lot, however hadn't been in a while. I have to say, the last two visits have not been as good! This used to be our go-to restaurant...not anymore!

The last visit was for lunch. The items on the children's menu are boring and bland, however they were not willing to substitute anything! My sandwich was pretty bad and the service was very slow.

The previous visit was for dinner. The food was less than stellar, the server was AWFUL, and the drinks came in dirty glasses. It was a poor choice of restaurants to bring an out of town guest to!

I don't think we will be hurrying back any time soon, which is sad for such a cute place with good potential. Perhaps they have felt the need to cut costs, explaining the slip in quality. We will continue our search for good food...

“WINNER WINNER WINNER WINNER”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012

What a really neat place! Awesome service with honest recommendations from our waitress Tara. Food was cooked to perfection and the live harpist in the background made for a perfect date night!! The owner stopped by our table a couple of times and then sat down with us for an after dinner cocktail in the cozy lil bar area. We will most definitely be back and highly recommend this to anyone looking for a quality restaurant here in Loveland. The beef medallions were a good size portion and were delish!!

“Wonderfully Unique”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

This place is so unique and it's wonderful too. If you want to take your mate to a special place then come to Sofia's Bistro for the impressive effect. The facelift on the building isn't bad either. I hadn't been here in a while and the new paint on the building made me stop in again. I savored every bite of my meal. Glad I came back :)

“Unique menu, very good breakfast.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2012

Loveland doesn't have much that is unique, mostly a bunch of chain-type places, so when we tried Sofia's for breakfast, we were pleasantly surprised. Definitely will hit it again. Prices are a tad high, but you get a better than normal experience.
