Our experience at Sophia is one that we may never forget. In fact, it was so great we’ve even said we would hesitate to go back only because we can’t imagine it being that great again. But of course, I would go back in a heartbeat.
The small plates were delicious and are one of our favorite ways to enjoy dinner; the wine list is good; the atmosphere feels like a hidden neighborhood gem which for my first night in NYC was a perfect way to get a break from the chaos of the city. While these three things are enough to make a great dinner, our server was really what made our experience fantastic.
For a wine bar, I mentioned the wine list was good – although not great. The Italian heavy list did have some great options, but was actually small for a wine bar. However, after great dialog with our server he continued to bring us glasses of wine that were either not on the list or were only available by the bottle. We rarely order a bottle as we like to try different wines, but sometimes we do miss out on some of the best wines by doing this. At Sophia, we just got lucky to have the perfect server on the perfect night. More than three hours after our arrival we left with a round of hugs, happy bellies, huge smiles. It was a great way to begin our trip!
