“Fine Dining in a Fine Environment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

I read the reviews on here, I checked out the menu, and I decided to give Sophia's a try. My companions and I are so glad I did! In fact, one of them who is very well-traveled said it was one of the best meals she'd had in a long time. I would have to agree. And the restaurant was lovely. We also had a great server who wasn't afraid to put in some extra effort to keep her diners happy. We even commented on how pleased we were that she spread customers all over the restaurant instead of stacking us on top of each other, as so many establishments do. She was clearly happy to have made us happy. If you want a truly superior dining experience in Jackson, Sophia's is for you!

“Fried Green Tomato BLT??? You betcha!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Lovely lunch, lovely setting. So sorry that it couldn't go on all afternoon.
For dessert, Peach Clafouti with the best homemade vanilla ice cream I have ever had.
Dawn was our waitress and she thought of everything.
Just wonderful.

“Ruth Dickie review.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The food was excellent for our Sunday Brunch. The setting is elegant and pleasant. The wait staff were pleasant and helpful but not particularly well trained, always reaching across in front of me to gather dirty plates rather than walking around the table. Our group of 7 with ages 5 to 75 will be back, if only for the gumbo which was wonderful.

This was a quiet and pleasant restaurant. We enjoyed the food and evening. It was our first time in Jackson and this was a good choice.

“Good but pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

We were visiting from out of town and Sophia's was recommended. The food was very good, but not as good as it should have been for the price. You don't have to spend this much money (or, perhaps you do in Jackson) to get a basic salad with a few nuts and slivers of apple, stale muffins and a small portion of pork.
