Amazing whole rack of ribs, falling off the bone. Great service, even with a full restaurant. Brilliant atmosphere, can get a bit noisy when busy.

We were a group of 9 from Ireland. We needed to have a quick meal before a show. It is a very nice restaurant and we all would have loved to have more time there. The food is excellent. The decor is interesting. It's big and airy and it's just perfect.

Went there with a big group of friends. Nice atmosphere, crowded and friendly staff. 6 of 8 steaks we had were perfect , the other 2 was returned TWICE, before it was accepted. First time too well done, second time cold inside. We didn't have to pay for those two dishes and an extra bottle of wine free of charge... More

Cannot visit London and not visit Sophie's Steakhouse. Just a short walk through Covent Garden and you are here. Gorgeous food. If you love steak, it's a must. We didn't have time for a sweet as we were going out so we ordered cheesecake to go and it was delicious. Lovely staff and wonderful food. Visit their website for some... More

Simply amazing meal, bar/waiting staff were welcoming, helpful and knew the products very well. The Chateaubriand steak was perfectly cooked and tasted amazing. Don't visit Covent Garden without looking up Sophie's Steakhouse.

Great steak, giant martini's & guaranteed fun.

Open all day, ideal for business lunch, post work cocktail, a perfect pre & post show hotspot, fabulous dinner with friends or big blow out with a party.

Our steaks are cut from naturally raised, native breed British beef, much of which we age & butcher in house. Whilst beef is our thing, we have other favourites BBQ ribs, grilled fish, roast chicken, fresh salads & amazing homemade puddings.

We are all about the personal touch & great for any occasion.
