Sofia - Margate Ratings and Reviews

Our meal was excellent. The only problem was that the server had to juggle too many duties. I don't think there was a bus boy on duty yet. The server also had a large party that included children in another part of the restaurant, and he had to spend more time with them than just the two of us. Despite that, we thoroughly enjoyed our late Valentine's Day dinner.

Valentine's Day dinner was special at Sofia's. The restaurant was warm and cozy on a chilly and windy night as we settled into one of the nooks in the restaurant. The food tasted wonderful, our server was attentive and helpful with recommendations from the menu and in selecting wines to accompany our dinner.

It was our first visit. We had heard many good things and they were all true. The staff was very attentive and did a great job of explainning the dishes. I enjoyed the Fire Roasted Chicked Breast with grilled veggies. It was very tasty and athe portions large.
We are planning a return visit next month.

I feel like I am in Europe when I go to Sofia in Margate. Greek influenced menu, the grilled pita with the "trio" is a great starter. Attentive service, waiter willing to make suggestions. We had the Seafood Plaki (don't miss this!), sea bass, crabcakes, and lamb chops. Our party of 4 had a delightful time.

Intimate, cozy atmosphere, great food (be sure to order the 4-dip combo appetizer), excellent live music at a volume that still allows quiet conversation, and professional, attentive, friendly service (Ken is awesome!)! Will definitely be a return customer.

Would not return for dinner.
Steaks not cooked as requested , came with too much sauce, flaming cheese had no flavor, crab cakes were mostly filler although it stated it was jumbo lump crabmeat, Caesar salad was requested but never brought to the table .

We have dined at Sofia's many times and as always, the quality of the food was very good and the atmosphere quite nice. My only complaint is that we received our appetizer and salads at the same time which was almost immediately after the bread arrived. We felt a bit rushed and requested that the main course not be put in until we finished our appetizers and salad.
This is a beautiful restaurant with a gr ...
This is a beautiful restaurant with a great bar and wonderful ambiance. Unfortunately the
food is not very good. Duck was extremely dry & my husband had trouble swallowing it.
Also - the special steak with shrimp was only fair. Reminded us of the quality of food served
in a diner.

We haven't been to Sofia's in more than a year and when our group of 6 left after dinner all we kept asking ourselves: was why not? The night was a home run. Ken was a terrific server but the entire staff was very please and accommodating and the food and ambience was top notch, just like every time we have been there. Great job.

We dined at Sofia on Saturday September 10th for the first time. We will return for sure however I feel a need to express my thoughts on the hostess. We had a 8:15 reservation and did not get seated until 9:10. I felt like the "regulars" get seated right away and the reserved parties wait! The ambiance was nice so I really did mind waiting however the unpleasant hostess prompted me to write this review. Our waitress was very nice and pleasant. The food comes out quick once seated. The food was amazing, the ambiance was very nice but the hostess was terrible! She was rude and ignorant. I would recommend that she not be the first interaction with consumers. Had we not had other people with us I would have left the restaurant for sure based of my interactions with her. I would recommend this restaurant to friends and would return however I hope you take this feedback and place an appropriate person to greet your consumers! Also it is important for me to mention that the manager did make it up to us by offering dessert on the house but we opted for another round of drinks! Loved everything about my evening here except for the hostess! I Hope to see a more pleasant greeter when I return!

Another great night at Sofia. In spite of the pending storm, which never materialized, our server Vinny took great care of us. As usual, the drinks were perfectly mixed!! My wife ordered the Pasta Aphrodite which was chock full of lump crab meat. I ordered, at Vinny's recommendation, the Lamb Chops, which were terrific. We finished off with a dessert i cannot even begin to spell correctly. As i noted, in spite of the storm, we were not hurried out. We could have sat there all night, which we greatly appreciated.

The service was so slow and the bar made our drinks wrong two times. The food was bland and in some cases over cooked. We waited over an hour and a half for our meals while other guests that arrived after us were served and finished before we even received our entree. Not going back here, too many other and better choices in the area.

We had a wonderful experience at Sofia's. Our reservation was for a Friday night @ 7:30.
We were taken to our table promptly. Our server was great (Ken). Food was outstanding.
Sofia never disappoints. My husband and I had the Pan seared Chilean Sea Bass with Lump Crab Meat. It was scrumptious!!! Our appetizer Spanotinika was delicious as well as our Greek Salads. Dessert was Coco Tartufo which was also delicious. Its prices are comparable to any fine dining restaurants. Well worth it!

Seriously, amazing. Wife had the langostine entre, probably top 5 seafood dishes I've had, they were very sweet and fresh. I had the lamb osso bucco is awesome. The decor is great and our server Ken was helpful and always near by if we needed something.
