    A quiet oasis in the midst of UTC. Outstanding, professional service. What a fabulous luncheon menu! A multitude of creative, delicious choices. A bit pricey but worth every cent.

    Love Sophies! Waiter was attentive. They had some new specials offered. And I think they have the best hamburger in town. Great quiet environment where you can talk in comfortable seating. I will be back next week. Thank you to the entire Sophie's team for your consistency!

    I've written rave reviews of Sophies's before; but this trip was very very disappointing. My friend and I ordered Caesar salads, which had fresh romaine and 1 slice of prosciutto. However, the olives and roasted artichokes were not apparent. Dressing was not very tasty. This salad was inferior to that at Panera! Luckily I ordered grouper as a topping, which was quite salty but tasty. Definitely overpriced! I was really upset since this was to be a birthday celebration, It made me want to flee, ASAP, instead of coffee and dessert.

    We had a party of 3, two of us had the Goat cheese and beet salad... and were very disappointed with the amt of contents of the featured Goat cheese and beets! We did let the server know our thoughts and were informed that a new chef had just started and she would let him/her know of the results. The third dinner had the Turkey club and was very pleased. The environment was very lovely and conducive to conversation. The wait staff were very good.

    We love Sophies. The ambiance has a European flair. The food is consistently good but the pièce de résistance is the service. On our way out today we had to compliment the manager,Mark, for his HR skills in surrounding himself with a stellar staff. Bravo

    I thought this would be better based on the reviews. They weren’t full but wee waited ten minutes for someone to come over and even say hello. My food was not good. The salmon had so much Dijon or wasabi I could barely taste anything else. Nonetheless my drink was perfect. Very overpriced food

    This is about our 10th visit to Sophie's and each time has been excellent. The service is fantastic, each server takes their time explaining the menu and daily features. This visit the server actually brought us a complimentary sample of the days special appetizer. Food is always perfect, comes out quick, hot and fresh. We love this place and will be back! The curried chicken is my favorite - so delicious!
