Sofia - Margate Ratings and Reviews

Food was very good overall. Disappointed in the grilled Octopus. Had no flavor and was a bit mushy. The Caesar salad was very bland. However the fish and the lamb were fabulous. Especially the fish. Nice local restaurant. A little bit on the noisy side. Staff was wonderful
We enjoyed and shared a lot of small plates. All the food was delicious. Our whole party enjoyed the evening.

Spectacular Meal at Sofia
My Mother's Day meal at Sofia Margate was wonderful! Atmosphere is nice and cozy and the chairs are ver comfortable. Our tapas (octopus, cheese, dips and oysters) were amazing and the portions were generous. My son and I both had the lobster tail, which was firm and flavorful. My husband had the special, which was bone-in veal parmesan. The veal was thick and tasty and the pasta was delicious. The baklava and cappuccinos were also delicious. It was a great meal!
Special Occasion restaurant with atmosphere
What a plelasure to have dinner at Sofia's. The wait staff is so friendly and very professional. This neighborhood restaurant consistency makes us want to go back time and again. Prices are competative but you do get value because the portions are large. The salads are generous and sharing is encouraged. While we had dinner this time, we can completely recommend their bar menu or early 'bird special menu. Great selections, great staff - what a restaurant.!

We love Sofia restaurant, the atmosphere is beautiful and food outstanding Greek . My only complaint is you have to ask for a stemmed glass for your martinis!!!! That's a Nono in my book otherwise great!!!!
excellent night on the town
I had the lamb chops, medium rare, excellent with marinade. My companions had the tuna, the branzino and the shrimp appetizer. They were happy. We shared the greek salad, enough for 4. Angela suggested a greek white wine. It was excellent. The server was attentive and helpful. The ambiance was great despite more noise than I would like. I recommend highly.
We came from cherry hill NJ. Very little Greek items. I'm a gourmet cook. The moussaka was small n burned on bottom and on sauce top. Instead of half chicken item only got a split breast w uncooked hard veggies would not go there again or recommend it to anyone. Food was not worth the high end prices for inadequate food. We were extremely disappointed. Had to travel back home 1 n half hrs. Not worth time/trip👎🏿

As always, great service. Food was amazing. Love this place.
First time at Sofia's and it won't be the last! Great Greek food and service. We went during AC Restaurant week so it was extremely busy and noisy -. must make reservations.
Not as good as last year's dish
We did Sofia again because last year it was the best restaurant we selected for Restaurant Week. However, while my partner liked his selection, I was disappointed with my dish. It appeared to be burnt however the waiter said that's how it's prepared. Doubtful???? Plus the sauce was overpowering & there was no pasta to compliment the dish.
Outstanding restaurant!!!! From the time you walk thru the doors you know you are in for a great experience!!!!
Restaurant Week 2016
Our group was two couples out for an early Saturday evening dinner during Restaurant Week. We asked to be seated in the room they refer to as the atrium, where there are the four long gas fireplaces lining one wall. It took awhile for the dinner crowd to fully materialize, so we had easy conversation. My husband and I both had the Saginaki appetizer, flamed at the table, and enjoyed it quite a bit. We both then moved on to the braised lamb shank with orzo, and not only were we satisfied in the restaurant, we had enough leftovers to make dinner the next night at home. David, our waiter, was helpful without intruding on our conversations, and his positive attitude reflects very well on the management of the restaurant. We had been to Sofia's only one time before and ordered from the regular menu, and we will certainly go back again, happy with both experiences. (And kudos to all the Margate restaurants who use Open Table to take reservations. We were coming from Ocean City, and hardly ANYONE takes a reservation, not to mention that it's a dry town, which certainly dampens the festivity of a dinner out!)
A Delicious, Lingering Dining Pleasure
Our diner at Sofia's was a delicious, dining pleasure. The staff is warm, friendly, and accommodating. The food is clean, fresh, and deliciously prepared. The kind of meal that brings a smile when you think about it. The restaurant is sophisticated and classy, but not stuffy.
Great Place for a Relaxing Dinner
The service at Sophia's was outstanding. Everyone was friendly. The food came out very quickly. Our server was extremely attentive. The owner even gave us a personal tour and a little history of the decor. Definitely going to go back.

Awesome food, service and experience were all A++
Sophia's was wonderful, dinner, service and atmosphere. Lauren was super. Would surely recommend to others. Had a great dinner and overall experience !
Good Greek Food
We went here during Restaurant Week. I really enjoyed my Spanakopita, Char-Grilled Petit Filet Mignon and Tourta Mocha. My husband had the Saganaki, which was okay, Yiouvetsi (a lamb dish) which I did not care for and the Galaktobouriko, which was very good. I do have to be honest, I don't like lamb, but my husband said it was just okay. The service was Excellent!
Great Mediterranean food
If you're a fan of Greek food go here! And get the baklava for dessert! Delicious! Service was okay, felt a little rushed (and the hostesses were rude!) They were busy for AC restaurant week. It won't stop me from going back though!

We wanted to try Sofia's after staying away for a period of time. We went with friends and all of we're very pleasantly surprised by the food, service and atmosphere of Sofia's. Definitely plan to return.
Great Restaurant Week Dinner!
Ordered the Greek salad for my appetizer, the Seafood Plaki for my entree & the phyllo dough with custard inside for dessert. Each course did not disappoint & was quite tasty. Have enjoyed several Restaurant Week dinners here before & the food is consistently good. The ambiance is lovely and the waitstaff professional.

The salmon special was fabulous with tomato and spinach risotto
Should've stayed home!
3 out of 4 dinners were bad. One so much that the waiter immediately said I'll take it off of the bill. Once I pointed out my dinner was too embarrassed to complain about the other 2 bad dinners. Food should never have left the kitchen. Bar is awesome here, too bad food is not.

I should have ordered the always perfect bronzino. Instead I had a crab cake which was average. My husband's seafood combo was excellent.
We booked a nice Valentine dinner on Saturday February 13, 2016 here at this restaurant for 3 couples and each of us had a delightful dinner. The service was very pleasant and more than accommodating to each of our requests. We will not only recommend this restaurant but will frequent it often ourselves.
We had a great experience. The bartender was great (David) We ended up eating at the bar since it was a slow nice, nasty weather, and quiet. The bartender took very good care of us.
Have had some good dinners here, but this time was not good. Duck was just ok but moussaka was horrible. Would go back for bar menu but not dinner.
Sophia Margate Nj
The food is just ok. But the service and atmosphere is pretty good.
Sofia was terrific
We went to Sofia on Wednesday 12/30. The service was great. Our waiter made us feel like we were the only table he was responsible for. He was personable, knowledgeable about the menu items and very attentive. The food was pricey, but worth it for the special occasion we were celebrating. The sangria was delicious. The waiter had recommended that we share two salads among the four of it. They were each excellent, and more then enough for four people. The entrees were excellent, the sides well thought out for each entrée. The only disappointment was we didn't have room for dessert.
Sophia's exceeded all our expectations. The menue has many interesting Mediterranean dishes. I had the lamb chops. The entree contained three double lamb chops cooked to perfection. The service was top notch and the restaurant was beautifully decorated for the holidays. Great place for that special occasion dinner.
Been going there since they opened and have always enjoyed it. My wife is Greek as are the owners and it makes it all that more special. The place itself is simple elegant and the food is always wonderful....Thank you Sofia,always a pleasure.

Food and service were top notch. Our server, Nick, paid close attention to our needs without being intrusive.
good food off the beaten path
We decided to try a local restaurant away from the casinos and found Sofia's and I'm glad we did. I love Greek and Mediterranean food and Sofia's did not disappoint. The food was delicious. The wine list was also good. The clientele seemed to be an older, local crowd, but the staff was very friendly and attentive. I would definitely visit again.

Everything with the food was excellent and service was wonderful.
A group of neighbors got together and went to this restaurant and had a wonderful time. Food was fantastic, our waiter David was exceptional, and the owner Introduced herself and made sure we were having a good time. Gratefully this gem is in our own back yard.
Excellent as always!!!
Sofia's was completely packed on a Saturday night, and although the noise level was excruciating, the food was exceptional as usual, the crabcakes santorini and the four dip trio were amazing as always!!
