    The food was excellent. The restaurant had a nice vibe and excellent ambiance; however, the service was not that great. We made a reservation for my wife’s birthday and the server didn’t even make the effort to make special. The service takes away from the great food they serve. With that said, I will return because of the ambiance an excellent food.

    The $25 3 course lunch special is a terrific value in downtown DC. Food is beautifully presented and delicious. Tiramisu is some of the best I've ever tasted, including in Italy!

    Great menu, delicious food, attentive service (bravo Chante). If you get there before 5 you can also take advantage of some great happy hour dishes at your table. Try the cod, monkfish, or duck breast.

    The bar “ran out” of lemon peel twists for cocktails. Not good! Martinis served in a glass designed to hold port wine! Appetizers were tasty…burrata with beets and steak tartare. Entree of monkfish was good but the linguine with clams was not good at all. No taste, under salted and consisted of just linguine and a few clams. No other seasoning was evident in spite of listed on menu. The manger did take it off our bill. We had previously been to Via Sophia by the Sea in Kennebunkport Maine and it was delicious and we were expecting the same from Via Sophia in DC. Our waiter was very inattentive and we had to get his attention for everything. All in all not a good evening out.

    Via Sophia ended being a great spot to eat - the food was delicious and the service was excellent. The portions were a bit smaller than I was hoping, and I sat outside, which ended up being slightly noisier than I wanted. But overall, it was a good experience.

    Average food but the prices did not match up. Also did not honor the happy hour deal that was on Open Table (pizza and wine for $17) . Much better places to go to just 5 min away

    I checked outdoor dining on my reservation. There was no indication that this would be based on availability. I chose this restaurant for a business meal solely on the outdoor dining option as I have COVID conscious employees. When we arrived (5 minutes early), the host started taking us to an inside table and when I said my reservation was for outside, he said there was not a spot available outside. I did not want to make a big deal of this in front of my team, but frankly would have chosen a different restaurant had I known we would be eating inside.

Food was excellent! Portions just right and cooked to perfection. My cod dish looked like a work of art! Would definitely come back!

    Service is top notch here partly due to the fact the manager is roaming and just being helpful, and the waitstaff are very attentive (but also recognize that you want to talk and chill for a bit). Food was delicious. Our bruschetta was fine, but not as yum-inducing as our main dishes (pasta). Atmosphere is elegant but casual at the same time. Highly recommend.

    Great to have dinner here before A show at the national theater. Service is excellent, drinks are excellent with homemade ingredients. small plates are great, pastas are handmade and very good. Little bit on the pricey side compared to restaurants of similar quality, but the atmosphere is great and the patio is beautiful. We would certainly dine here again, especially before seeing a show, as they are very attentive.

    Delicious salad with chicken, and Italian sandwich. Service was impeccable as usual. Just one suggestion: the dough used for the pizzas needs to be rethought because it’s still gummy with a nice char from the pizza oven. Maybe a change in flour or formula is needed.

    Steak tartare was next level 🔥 I am still thinking about it today. Aaron was our server and killed it with helping us decided on what to order. We had cocktails and a bottle of wine picked out by their Sommelier, Thomas. We split a pizza and both had pasta as our main entree. You can’t skip on dessert! 10/10

    The food, service, and attention to detail were outstanding. The octopus is the best I’ve ever had. The foie gras my husband had was excellent. But then the pasta…OMG. Just so delicious and hand made every day. Got a bottle of the Sicilian Frappato, which was chilled and perfect. The manager provided homemade Limoncello. Perfect.

    it was suggested that we eat outside. It was 80 degrees and a nice day in the late afternoon. After a short time, my wife and I were getting bites from insects all over. Four people sat next to us - they encountered the same problem and abruptly left. My wife especially was so uncomfortable that we moved inside. We hoped it would be a nice dinner. I suggested that they inform customers of the problem. They didn't care. It was our last night in DC. We left with a bitter taste!!!! Incredible!

    The place was nice and food tasty. However the server was rude. My daughter inquired about a menu item and the response was read the menu the ingredients are listed. Then the server said no we don’t have that rudely. Lesson for the establishment no question deserves a rude response. Secondly never treat patrons with disrespect. I informed the manager and will never return to this establishment.
