    The staff and manager were really friendly and welcoming. The food is good but a little pricey - but maybe it's like that everywhere now.

    Loved the antipasti platter to share. I ordered a medium rare steak and it was medium well, very disappointing in a restaurant of this calibre. I’m not one to send it back and I still enjoyed it but at this level steaks should not be difficult to get right.

    It was a busy night and you could see staff were busy but we were still greeted and seated in a timely and professional manner Ordered pizzas and fries, served nice and hot, both were delicious, we were seated at the bar which was great, we got our drinks quickly. Wayne was looking after us as he had done before and as always the service, food and general ambuance was great. Cannot wait for our next visit.

    Lovely setting, amazing view and nice atmosphere. However, the food wasn’t nice at all. I was advised of that before but wanted to make my own opinion. Extremely disappointing. I got duck. It was chewy and tasteless. Same with the accompanying risotto. My friend got a pizza, which wasn’t great either. Prices are high enough and the place is great but the quality of the food really clashes with the environment. Waitress also seemed to be annoyed to be there.

    We felt it was odd that you couldnt customise your pizza order with variius toppings. Then a meat pizza arrived for a vegetarioan in our group. By the time she got the correct order, the rest of us were nearly finished. The curry was very bland, overall the menu choice was small. Bites for starters were gorgeous.

    Cod chowder was ok but fish could do with more flavouring/seasoning. Pizza was a bit too thin. Would prefer more cheese and tomato sauce Dirty chips were delicious Service very good and friendly. Would definitely recommend and return.

    Not a lot of choice on menu and pizza not available. Portions were large and fine but not the standard one would expect for the cost. Floor extremely sloppy and many patrons mentioned this after I took a little slide.

    Service a bit slow but everyone was friendly. Food was good. Everyone enjoyed their meal. However only brunch menu available, which we didn’t check for on the website when booking. A/c was blowing cold air. Ask to turn off but wasn’t done. Lots of family with crying babies and we were put next to them even though ample space.

    We dined in the restraunt Sunday evening for our 4 year anniversary. The server was quite rude and when putting my partners drink on the tables, she spilled some of it twice, there was no apology and she didn’t bother cleaning it up either time. We also waited with empty plates for over 10 mins as she walked past numerous times, we then had dessert, but we could barely finish our food before we were asked to leave the table EARLY, as we had booked for 7:15, tables are booked for 1h45 mins but we were asked to get up at 8:30 and move to the bar. This was very disappointing. For the price tag, it definitely isn’t worth it!!

    Food did not live up to the expectations, it’s overpriced for what you get and we waited way to long for our food it was cold when it arrived and half of us had our food done before the rest of the group got their food. Other tables that arrived after us got their food before us overall just a bad experience wouldn’t recommend and won’t be returning

    First time at Sophie's and everything was great! The restaurant is well indicated from the hotel lobby, the decoration is unique and everything is well laid out. We started with coktails and thanks for the effort on the non-alcoholic ones. The menu was diverse and the quantity was large, a green menu was available for vegetarians/vegans and thanks for putting an effort here again. The staff was very nice, effective and observant. We got a bit distracted by the open kitchen and the barmaid making cocktails, in a good way! I would def recommend the place.

    We booked a brunch for 12 noon, arrived in good time & were shown to table by the floor manager. I felt we were left waiting too long before anyone came to take our orders, though the wait for meals was OK. My wife had a chicken dish which she judged to be delicious; I ordered Eggs Benedict with which I wasn't satisfied - the bacon was thick cut, tough, and without real flavour, though there was lots of meat provided. The sauce appeared to be straight from a jar, rather than handmade, as is the case in others restaurants. The fries were soused in oil - not at all appetising. There appeared to be quite a few Hen/Bridal/Baby shower parties happening around the same time, and so the sound levels were noisy - perhaps it would be better if small parties/single diners were seated at the other end of the room ? We've had evening dinner in Sophie's previously, and were very happy - unfortunately, our Brunch experience left lots of room for improvement !

    Pizza oven broke so people then had to spend double on their main course or else get some nibbles which they didn't want. Manager was lovely and tried to improve things, but service was very poor before that.
