Sofia - Margate Ratings and Reviews
Grilled Octopus is my favorite and always perfect. Ahi Tuna is among the best I've had. Live singer always there on weekends and she is VERY talented. Beautiful voice, and not too loud. In fact, she's so good I have to keep looking at her to remind myself she's not the original vocalist on whatever song she's performing. The bar is very large, friendly and cozy. There is a large sprawling tree in the center of it, with white lights on it like Christmas. Sounds cheesy but it's not; it works very well. I've eaten at the bar by myself and I've eaten at a table with my family. In both areas, the service is pleasant, friendly, prompt and efficient which is a rarity these days. I waited no time for the check to arrive and to come back with my credit card which is a test most restaurants fail miserably. The prices are on the high side, but it's a high rent area and competitive with the others in the area so I can't blame them for that.
Always improving in food quality and service. We have been extremely satisfied each time we go. It has become a favorite restaurant for us. The staff and owners are very attentive to all of your needs and they work very hard to create a satisfying and enjoyable experience. We recommend it highly
My husband and I dined here last saturday evening. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was tasty. We decided to do small plates, and as always seems to happen, they all arrived at the table at the same time making for a bit of a crowded table. other than that, we enjoyed a lovely evening.
Sofia's is absolutely delicious! We were going to Atlantic City later and decided to just pick a random place we had never heard of to try and boy am I glad we did! The decor was very Mediterranean with a good vibe. They have live music which was away from the diners so you could actually enjoy both your date and the music. The filet mignon was cooked perfect and the asparagus was spot on. My husband had the fire roasted chicken which came with roasted vegetables in a clay pot and it was amazing! I can't wait to go back and try other dishes - A great find!
The food at Sofia's is consistently fresh and delicious , with many authentic Greek dishes and great seafood. The service is terrific. The owners, Angela and Sofia are usually there greeting their guests and the night we were there, Angela very generously sent over a dessert platter for my parent's anniversary. The decor is very pretty--especially the rooftop in the summer. And I love happy hour (or any hour) at the bar, which has a tree in the middle of it--great place also watch TV and listen to live music. One of my favorite places in Margate.
So nice to have an upscale Greek restaurant in the neighborhood. I had high expectations, but I wasn't bowled over. Just so-so, strictly a one-time visit for me, though I was going with 2 friends who had been there before.
Service was informative & attentive. We were given warm bread w/ olive tapenade which was nice to start. Passing on wine as were were all driving, we started with a cheese platter that was kind of flat in offering & presentation. Moussaka was supposed to have spinach & feta but was more like a soggy scrambled egg texture with leeks sandwiched between limp but warm filo dough. Bummer!
Spinach salad with apples and cider vinaigrette was chosen after being warned not to order the fresh tuna with wasabi slaw salad. My friends split the fish cooked in tomato sauce with potatoes, feta and olives. They enjoyed it.
After our entrees, we were offered a complimentary platter with a small amount of grapes, cut pineapple and mini Greek pastries with honey and nuts. Nice touch!
My first time here and it won't be my last. Absolutely wonderful service, not to be outdone by the food and atmosphere. The stunning decor just added to a great night. Our server found the perfect spot between feeling comfortable without being rushed during dinner. Just a lovely experience.......
Sophia never fails to impress!! The food is fresh and consistently excellent. The Branzino is the best I've ever had and is full of so much flavor. The detailed decor is beautiful right down to the bathrooms. The busboys and waiters are always observant and friendly. I can't wait until Summer so I can eat at Sophia as much as possible when I am in Margate.
