“Nice Steakhouse”
Reviewed August 25, 2012 via mobile

We came up to Sofía by looking at Steakhouse's options close to Needham. It was Sofia's or Capital Grille and we did not want to fork a fortune when we were already doing that sending our daughter to Boston College. The choice was easy. The place was full of families eating which is a very good sign. The menu was appropriate in size with a daily special of appetizer, main course and dessert for $33.00. The wine list was a little bit pricey. We chose a daily special, and two entrees off the regular menu. The grilled swordfish and salmon were grilled to perfection. The sirloin with fries and jalapeño jelly hit the mark, but it was not as tender as an angus grade selection. Order some bearnaise sauce on the side and dunk the frittes. We were too full to enjoy dessert. We will return to attempt the prime rib which had finished. You can skip the espresso at $5.00 a demitasse. over all a nice meal.

“Overall. Very good place”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

I am not sure what Sofia has that makes me return to it again and again. The food is good but not extraordinary, the service is very good but not exceptional. The atmosphere is also very nice but nothing you take with you as unusual. Sophia has something to it, some magic that keeps lures me back, I just like it.

“Restaurant week visit was good!”
Reviewed March 22, 2012

Went to this restaurant again for restaurant week boston. Different menu than last time you had a choice of appt, main coarse and dessert for 33.12. Among the coices for app was butternut soup, maryland crab caKes, arugula salad with goat cheese and callimari to name a few of the choices. We chose salad & callamari both excellant. Main we both had lamb chops(2) with scalloped pottoes very good deSsert cheese cake (creamy) & rasberry sorbet with berries very good also. Very nice and fresh antipasto for 14 on a large platter. Well worth the visit. Only complaint service harried in beginning with kitchen slow down but got better & no dishes for antipasto.

“This is my favorite restaurant of 2011”
Reviewed January 16, 2012

Sofia's has become my first choice for all occasions to have a good meal. My family has enjoyed the varied menu. I love the stylish decor and excellent service. The food is also very good and plentiful. Desserts are also excellent. Can't wait to return.
