We want Sophie's to be a place where one could have a good, hearty meal (comfort food), simple and unpretentious, at a fair price. Our goal is to produce an atmosphere where people can come for lunch, a full dinner, a late snack, a glass of wine or a big cup of coffee and feel comfortable and at home. Our menu is diverse enough for everyone, yet simple enough so the average person will not get overwhelmed with numerous menu choices and complications. Our basic premise is to provide quality food and good service at a fair price in an unpretentious atmosphere. The décor is modeled after classic French Bistros. French country antiques, large open shuttered windows, dark woods, soft pastel colors and walls covered with family pictures make Sophie's an intimate cozy environment

It was “Mussels Festival week” and we had not been here in a while and it was excellent as always. Our Mussel courses were well prepared and delicious. The pommes frites with aioli on the side were a wonderful accompaniment. Our waitress was helpful, friendly and very good.
My wife and I said we need to come back more often. It is a real gem of a restaurant.

Nice place !!

At first one waiter was in shorts during the dinner hour which I felt was inappropriate for this place. He got off his shift and changed clothes, at which time he put on long pants.
Food was good, I had ribeye which tasted a little like it had been in the freezer too long.

This was our first time at Sophie's Bistro. Birthday celebration. The atmosphere was nice and the place was lively. The food was very good as well. Our server, Eric, was attentive and personable. We will go back.

Not the best location, definitely off the beaten path. The exterior does not match interior decor. Food was good, service was great. My only criticism is that food came out entirely too quick and too little time between bread and each course served.

Sat in small room off of main dining. Very noisy. It doesn’t seem like a big issue but we love their warmed bread served before the meal. Didn’t happen this night and it didn’t taste the same!

First time there—but we are looking forward to next time. Delicious food with many choices and specials, cordial staff, and it wasn’t noisy despite a full restaurant.

Im going to say yes here because the food wasnt bad. We were there on a fixed menu night for valentines day so i would like to evaluate based on their regular menu. But overall we had an average experience. The food was good but not great which is typically what you expect from nights like these. But being my first time there, i would like to try their regular menu.

Everything was perfect, as always. The same staff has been here for the 16 years I've been dining here, it speaks volumes about the kind of place it is. The food is wonderful, the service is exceptional, and the ambiance is just right, and they are always consistent. The owner has visited my table to say, "hello" at every meal I've had here. This is, without compare, my favorite restaurant ever.

We had a great time. We went for Valentine's day. My husband got a call from work and we unfortunately had to leave early. The waitress was so understanding packing up our dinner and desert and even asking if I would like a cup of coffee for him to go. The food is always outstanding.

Great food, good value. Acoustics are not good, although it has a nice semi-lively vibe. Service was good, although we felt a bit rushed. I think it was the waitress more so than the policy of the restaurant.
