Had our dining out group meet at Sophia's last week. Handicapped parking was limited and I parked around the corner in front of another restaurant. No curb cutaways so I had to ride my scooter in the parking lot to entrance. Double doors but the hostess opened both sets for me. Our group of 5 were seated very comfortably. The... More

Anytime my husband wants to treat me to dinner w w go to Sophia's. There is not a single thing on their menu that I would not try again. I love their antipasto appetizer. The pasta dishes are lovely and the bartenders make wonderful drinks.

I love the atmosphere and the food at Sophia's. I have only order the 3 cheese lasagna because it is so good. Maybe I should order something else but when you find a treasure why change! The complimentary bread is an added plus to the meal.

The menu is different from "the usual". It is wonderful. The atmosphere is pleasant and they have a nice patio. Service is pretty good as well. Prices are upwards of $15 per plate.

This restaurant never disappoints. Everything I have eaten here has been great. They always have great seafood, steaks and my husband loves their pork chop. The dinner menu is pricier, but lunch is more mid-range. Their house made rosemary chips are so good.

I had a wonderful dinner with wine at Sophia's bar and enjoyed the local "bar chatter". The mixed berry dessert was exceptional!

We were looking forward to our brunch because we had read such great reviews of the restaurant. We were very disappointed. When we arrived we had a wait for a table. There was available seating at the bar. The wait was not very long so really no big deal. My husband had the quiche and I had a basic breakfast... More

Atmosphere was casual and relaxing and the food was excellent. The only aspect that I think could be improved is if the restaurant took reservations on weekends. We did have a short wait.

The food was great, everything we had I would order again. Service was very slow. We ordered drinks and an app we asked for bread right away we were all very hungry, server said I will bring it out after you order dinner, which I did not understand if we asked for it? Our server would disappear for far to... More

This is where my husband and I go every anniversary, every time his parents are in town, and every time we want a great antipasto platter. The food is great. The service is great. The drinks are great. If I could rate them even higher I would. The atmosphere is Italian and there is outdoor seating which I love. All... More
