Sofia - Englewood
Formerly known as Smoke Chophouse, this Sherlock-Holmes-esque steakhouse & cigar emporium was transformed (with a lot of time and effort by the owner) into a bright, chic Italian Steakhouse, which continues to hold one of NJ’s only indoor smoking licenses.
Planning a gathering for a special function — corporate event, holiday party, birthday party, bridal/ baby shower or other? The “Garden Room” at Sofia is available for parties of up to 60 people. With its retractable roof, the weather can be another “guest” at your affair during those warm weather months.

What an awesome dining experience. I know we’re in the middle of this pandemic but Sofia didn’t miss a beat!! Service was amazing, food was amazing. Thank you to the entire staff at Sofia!!
Great Food, Great service. nice to be back . strongly recommend the Branzino and the tuna carpaccio... yummy
Best restaurant in the area. The service is impeccable and the food is amazing!
Service was great, food excellent too bad they changed an extra bottle of wine that I never got
One of my husbands and my favorite restaurants! Drink menu is exceptional!
Great food , great experience.
It was a great dining experience overall. Service was great, food was subpar.
Went for Father’s Day early dinner & got there just at the right time! I was worried because at first it was seemingly empty but it filled up quickly after we sat down but was not too noisy at all. We sat in the back patio & got the perfect corner seat. We ordered a dozen oysters which were good & the meatballs as appetizers. Meatballs were fine, nothing to rave about. I was bummed to find out the lobster spaghetti was not available as I was eyeing on the menu. I ordered the paparadelle ragu which was good. My boyfriend ordered NY Strip which was good size, he just complained that it was drenching in butter that it was overwhelming. He ended up putting it on an extra side plate & enjoyed it. He also ordered a side of Mac n cheese, which looked very plain and basic but the flavor was great. The only thing was the pasta was a tiny bit under cooked, but again the flavor there was great. We then ordered the banana dessert & the pecan chocolate cake which were both very delicious.
It always a pleasurable eating experience. I’m a picky eater but Sofia is in my opinion the best restaurant in Bergen county
Reservations were on time and the wait staff were very attentive. We had to dine outside because of the COVID protocols for opening but it was done nicely and the tables were distanced so we had privacy of conversation, which is a good thing not to overhear other table conversations. The specialty cocktail portions were a very small for the price so that was a disappointment - I'd say they were half of what you normally receive elsewhere, but the drink was nicely presented. The food was done to perfection and the presentation appetizing.
Good food and service, under circumstances with restrictions overall good place
Ambiance and service was great! We had the steak and sides for dinner and it was mediocre at best. The pasta dishes look better, maybe that’s what they are better at.
Best first dinner out of quarantine!!
Always have a great experience here from the knowledgeable servers, to the chic atmosphere, and great food!
Amazing food and even better service. By far one of my favorite places to dine in
Friends birthday brunch.... the waiter was incredible and made our day. Food, as always, was outrageously good
great food!! great bar, but service a smidge on the slow side.
Not a lot on the brunch menu.
Excellent for Friday Happy Hour and/or dinner ! Wide selection of cocktails made with top quality liquors.. try their Diplomatico rums ! Their Irish coffee is also one of a kind :-)
Honestly, the food was great but because of the rude busboy (tall girl in black uniform ), I'm taking away a star.
delicious food and lively atmosphere. would definitely recommend and dine again
From the food to the atmosphere, Sofia was a fabulous experience. Loved it!
Loved the atmosphere, service and food. I just wish we did not have too wait long to be seated as we had a reservation. Also, needs a bit more light as i could not read the menu and I have perfect vision. Lol. We will definitely be back soon.
Everything was great, except a bit too noisy for us. But the food was delicious and the service very attentive, cordial and professional. Notwithstanding the noise, we recommend and will return.
Filet Mignon and pork chop were amazing. Cruel Intentions drink was refreshing.
LOVE Sofia..... 1st time sitting in the back room, which I’m not a fan of. BUT ALWAYS ENJOY MY TIME THERE!!!!!!
Everything was great but please work on your salads . Necessary addition to steak have to be delicious!
Two thumbs up. Great vibe and energy. Like NYC trendy spot with great food in NJ...but more space.
The restaurant was really loud and they placed us right by the kitchen and wait staff area. Service was a bit cold. Food was really good but it was a bit disappointing as a special occasion birthday.
We really enjoy ourselves every time we go there. We'd dine there more frequently but their corkage fee is really high $45. I am a collector of wines, and do not mind paying a corkage fee, but they are high.
Steaks were outstanding. Our waiter was wonderful. I’m sorry to say that noise level in the room is so loud we won’t be coming back.
Wine was good. T-bone for 2 was a little nervy. Sides were great...garlic mash, brussel sprouts, broccoli rabe and can’t remember...Apps were good..we ordered 3 and shared among the 4 of us. We thought there would be music for dancing ..but there wasn’t. We would go again if we are in NJ. We are in northern Westchester.
Our experience was pleasant as always when we make a trip to Sofia. The food was amazing as usual and the service is always good!
Cocktails, tuna tartare, thick cut bacon, and the 8oz filet were all fantastic. Service was on point - timing and attentiveness was perfect.
The food and the service was amazing.
With reservation, waiting time was almost 45min. too crawded and very noise. once you ordered the food, the food arrived in less than 10min, really seemed the food was ready and just heated in the microwaves... disappointed about that
Always a great time!
