    My new favourite spot! Went to Sophie's for a friends birthday. Staff, were so nice, also didn't seem run off their feet or stressed and very happy to offer any help. Nice to see staff who seem to really enjoy their job. When we were leaving, three chefs said goodbye, thank you and hoped we would enjoy our day, I don't think either of us ever experienced such nice staff anywhere!

    Beautiful restaurant with amazing views. Food pricey but delicious. Fabulous cocktails. Decor and ambience fantastic. Very courteous and efficient staff. Only downfall both in bar downstairs and in Sophie's restaurant was the music was too loud so everyone had to shout to be heard. It was good music but just should be a few decibels lower so patrons can hear themselves speak. Overall a great place to go and will go again and recommend to anyone who wants a great dining experience.

    Food was excellent, service was very good, staff very friendly, background music was a bit loud, something more chilled would have been more appropriate for night time dinner. All in all though a very nice experience, will definitely be back.

    I would like to see vegan options on the menu as every time I call in I am being told that there are optionS(plural) including dessert and when I arrive then I have to chat with the waiter to modify dishes on the menu and they come in very underwhelming to say the least, being not the cheapest. Have been there two times, yesterday was the second time and it was my birthday so on the phone I was assured that there is a vegan cake option, but there was none. Luckily the day before I have been to another restaurant with a separate vegan menu. We've spent a large sum of money this time, but I will never return.

Great selection on the menu, we had a coeliac with us and he absolutely loved his freshly made gluten free pizza! Cocktails were great and the view was beautiful at sunset. Definitely will be back!

    Loved my food and have been here a lot recently and had nothing but good things to say about the staff and the food ! I went last night with my friend and was told at 7:30 that we had to give back out table, it was a Monday night and the place was very quiet, we were told we had 4 minutes to leave ! We would have ordered another drink at 7:10 when we were brought our bill! Very disappointed

    Food was very good. But we had 40mins between starters and mains. They did how ever give us a glass of wine each. They also forgot that I asked for a candle on desert for my partners birthday. That said we would return again

    Disappointed. We thought it was a proper restaurant. We are retired. We realised it was not for us. The food was burgers really. No salad which was utterly amazing for any age group & the music was poor & far too loud. I enjoy nearly all music. Oh dear, sorry to tell the truth. Good luck, you’ll probably be fine but not for us.
