Sophia’s Restaurant offers the finest Happy Hour Menu in the area. The atmosphere on a cold winter night is unreal- the fire in the fireplace and the warmth at the bar is unbelievable. We had the Spinach and Crab Dip with Pitas. The portion was...More

We had a great lunch surprise at Sofia Restaurant on a Saturday afternoon. They usually don't do lunch but this particular weekend every year they do. They had all kinds of lunch specials and cocktails. So good. The service was awesome too!

After Labor Day dinner party. Seated right away. Nice wine selections and some great apps. Loved the oysters and hummus. Four terrific entrees liked by all. Left oovers, always a nice plus. Different coffees and desserts. Margate pricey, but not to outrageous. Just a beautiful...More

We've been there twice in the past weeks. Very good food presentation and service. The grilled octopus rated a 10. Reservations are a little difficult to get and after about 7:00 you'll wait a bit at the bar. Noise levels above easy talking levels.

Had a great dinner at Sofia last night. Arrived on Friday night without a reservation. We expected to have to wait long for a table. The hostess could not have been nicer about accommodating 6 people during their peak dinner hour. We got a table...More
