Started out with the fresh oysters. They were served in a bed of ice. Nice right? Never had them when the meat was room temperature. We let the server know about this and he told us that he watched them open and plate them. Ok, doesn't explain them not being cold. Had the Caesar salad next. Not bad. Then had... More

Fine continental dining at moderate prices. Everything our group ordered was well-prepared and the service was attentive and accommodating. Plenty of shopping nearby and within the proximity of the beach.

My wife and I, with three young ladies in their 30's in tow, visited Sofia on a Thursday night. Having spent the day on the beach, we were glad to be seated indoors. Those that ordered cocktails enjoyed them. The bottles of wine we all shared were reasonably good, and, at least in my eyes, not priced beyond their worth.... More

My fiancé and I went to Sofia's last week on a date night. We first sat on the roof deck, I wasn't too thrilled with being in front of the big fan. I asked if we could be seated inside. The hostesses were more than accommodating. We sat inside and had Vinny as our server. He was awesome the food... More

Beautiful bar with a varied bar menu. The flatbreads and hamburgers are exceptional. The bar drinks are great, bartenders friendly.

Four of us arrived early on a week night and were seated in the rooftop terrace. High walls blocked any view but we could hear the band at Maynard's next door and the hum of AC unit on the roof. We began by sending back a water glass (chipped), a plate (some sort of sauce had been dripped on it... More

We travelled here for dinner after lots of mediocre fried food in Ocean City, and we were not disappointed! Service was very attentive, and we were seated just minutes before a dinner rush without feeling rushed ourselves. Salad and appetizers were delicious, but the main dish was a flavor explosion - stewed meat, kasseri, and rich tomato sauce in a... More

The ambiance, the food and the people make you want to come back! We went to Sofia's for the first time with another couple. We enjoyed the entire experience. Margate is stocked with delicious restaurants but when I left, Sofia's made me want to jump on the internet and write a review. We didn't notice the loudness that some people... More

We went as a larger group for Happy Hour on a weeknight. We were seated in the large bar area. We had the option of high tops near the window, or a real table closer to the rest of the restaurant. We were only presented with 1 drink menu to share, but we were each provided with a food menu.... More

Always great food and service here. The servers know the food and wine list and make great recommendations. Food is always fantastic. Parking can be tight but they have a parking lot. Can't go wrong!
