“Delicious Greek”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

My husband and I have been frequenting Sofia's since they've opened. The staff is friendly, the atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable, and every meal on the menu is great and reasonably priced.

“A legit Greek Restaurant in Hasbrouck Heights”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Hasbrouck Heights has been on a very slow roll lately, which is primarily dominated by the typical Italian / fake Chinese food joints. Finally, a breath of fresh air...a restaurant that is not run by "Sopranos wanna-be's" waiting around.

Here are the positives:
This is a real Greek restaurant with properly seasoned gyros, white sauces and seasoned fries! Yes, a chef who actually knows how to season a food before it goes on a grill!!!!

Their gyros were tasty and alive with real flavors!!!! They fries were seasoned with the right amount of salt, pepper and oregano.

Their lamb chops were incredible! Medium rare is the only way to go.

Their stuffed eggplant was delightfully tasty and filling! My wife had their greek salad and it was delish!!!

On top of that, the prices are just right! Not too cheap, not too expensive. The portions are just right.

Negatives: Service is slow, so expect a wait. Your child should be equipped with plenty of reading materials or ipad to keep them occupied. If you are in a crunch for time, just call ahead by at least 1 hour and order your stuff and then show up.

Despite that negative, overall, it still makes it a "5" star rating in my book.

“A breath of fresh air........”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Sofia's has brought "a breath of fresh air" to the Hasbrouck Heights dining scene, which has been dominated for years by Italian and Chinese cuisine. My wife and I have eaten here at least six times over the last 8 months and have yet to be disappointed. The staff is extremely knowledgeable & courteous; and will gladly explain the preparation and ingredients in any of their traditional Greek menu items. In my humble opinion, they have the best baked moussaka this side of Athens.

What makes Sofia's food so special is the simplicity of the preparation and the freshness of the ingredients. Along with their regular Greek menu, there is always a short list of specials which take advantage of seasonal offerings and the catch of the day. As an example, I recently had an osso bucco style lamb shank with orzo while my wife had a fried cod dish with grilled vegetables. Both healthy preparations were absolutely delicious, and at prices that were very reasonable. This coupled with the fact that Sofia's is BYOB makes it a great value.

“A little Gem”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

I have eaten at Sofia's many times since it has opened and it keeps getting better. Went there for a quiet lunch and we were the only ones in the restaurant. Usually this means standards go down but not at Sofia's, The gyro's were wonderful and the food is always fresh, hot and professionally served. It will be nice when they open the restaurant for outdoor dining and this little gem will really shine.
