We loved the authentic feel of the decor. The bread was hot & fresh from the oven. We started with the Spanakopita. One word, AMAZING! You must also try the truffle mashed potatoes & for dessert, the Tiramisu. Overall an excellent dinner, well worth the price.

My husband and I decided to give Sofia a try during AC Restaurant Week. It's one of those places we've been wanting to go to, hearing how wonderful it was from friends. They were right! We got there a little early so we could sit at the bar for a cocktail before dinner. The atmosphere is beautiful!!! At the bar... More

During restaurant week we try new places and went here for dinner for the first time. Had heard wonderful reviews and wanted to try it for myself. I was so impressed with the stunning decor inside that it took me a bit to order. We were both absolutely thrilled with our dinners and our service couldn't have been better. Did... More

Lived in this area for my entire life and never went to Sofia--mostly because I always think to go there in the summertime when most places in Margate you cannot get in to. We decided to go here on a whim for something different. We could not have been more pleased with our meal. We had the Saganaki cheese appetizer... More

Beautiful setting in a private room upstairs with access to an outside, heated patio. Accessible by stairs or elevator. Nicely decorated, not at all noisy and roomy enough for mingling with appetizers before dinner. Appetizers included lamb lollipops which were absolutely perfectly cooked and absolutely delicious, crab balls, chicken souvlaki, and a variety of flatbreads. My honey had the filet... More

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
