Three of us went before the theater. Even though we had reservations, we had to wait about 20 minutes before we were seated. The tables are very close together, and the noise made it difficult to talk to each other. Two of us got our entrees about 15 minutes before the 3rd, and only after we hunted down our waiter. There was no apology made. The food was fine, but not spectacular; heaven knows there are a million Italian restaurants in NYC, where much better food can be found for the same amount of $$ and better service. The water guy was very attentive!

went after a show b/c it was right across the street so it was convenient. BAD IDEA! the cleanliness should be rated a negative. all the glasses were dirty. the oil bottle had some sort of debris in the bottom. ugh. can only imagine when the last time it was cleaned. the waiter was nowhere to be found and when he did show up was rude. my gnocchi tasted like sand was an ingredient. the bill was astronomical. do yourself a favor and don't go. again my main problem was the cleanliness.

Some friends from out of town were visiting and were staying at the Edison Hotel adjacent to Sofia's, so we decided to check it out since it was so convenient. Normally, for Italian food, I would not eat in the Theater District. The host was in a bad mood and was very rude to us. He never looked us in the eye or smiled. When our waiter approached us to take our order, he just said "Whattya want?" and motioned with his hand to give us his order. He never said another word. The food, as I suspected, was less than stellar. My linguine with white sauce was too salty. There is absolutely nothing special about the food, although I was happy with the hearty bread. The crappy merlot was overpriced at $8 a glass. Will definitely not return.

My husband and I wanted to try a different restaurant from one we frequent almost always when in NYC. Sofia's atomosphere is very nice. I ordered the veal marsala - the veal was tender but the marsala sauce was very bland. I asked for lemon wedges to perk up the dish. My husband ordered a veal dish as well and he enjoyed his meal. The waiter was nice but his service was lacking and not attentive. We will not return.

Walked past this place on our way to the marquis theatre. I stopped and looked at the meny real quick and it all looked good. After the show we all decided to eat here. One of the best chicken marsala I have ever eaten. The atmosphere was cozy and the waiter was very friendly. Will defintley eat here again.

The only redeeming aspect of the experience was the service, which was quite friendly and reasonably prompt. Of course, the bus boy walked on my wife's coat without picking it up, but overall, the service made dinner something slightly short of purgatorial. Shameful. I would be embarrassed to bring this food home to my dog.

We only found Sofia's because Carmines wouldn't take reservations for under six guests. However, they did us a huge favor. Whenever we're in the city, we always stop at Sofia's. The food is incredibly delicious the service is friendly and competent. If you are there for a leisurely meal, you are not rushed out - but if you have a theatre call, they oblige you with promptness in serving you and courtesy. I can't wait for my next visit. We truly love Sofias!
