After making a call at lunch time I was assured no table reservations were needed and we would be seated . We arrived at 6pm to be told an hour and a half wait was ahead of us . The bar had nowhere to sit , the bar staff were so unemotional and poured 3/4 of a pint on all... More

For the scale of this restaurant they really put on a good show. Service was swift and quality was very good. The fridge with the age-ing meat gives the place genuine authenticity. The steaks were very well cooked and the burgers are a good shout. Loads of chips for the carb lovers - but no so much food that I... More

We were bought this as part of a theatre package deal and enjoyed a lovely meal there today. Service was prompt and efficient and our waitress very helpful indeed. The food was well prepared and tasted good. Highly recommended.

This place was rammed on a Friday night but we thought we would see if we could get a table. We were told they could fit us in but we would have to wait 25 mins so the guy on the front desk kindly suggested we get a drink at the bar. Which we did and no sooner had we... More

We enjoyed this restaurant very much and ate there twice during our 10-night stay in London. We found it difficult in other restaurants to get a well-made Gin Martini, but Sophie's knew how to make a good one! The beef entrees were excellent as was the tuna entree. The staff were great fun and extremely efficient in service. The atmosphere... More

We were a family party of eleven going to the Royal Opera House during the holiday period and we had had difficulties finding a restaurant which would take an advance reservation for a party that large. Working through Trip Advisor reviews we came across Sophie's Steakhouse and telephoned to ask if they would accommodate us and a charming man called... More

Dropped in here with the kids as they had asked to go. You can't book in the evenings but with 220 covers there is always tables coming free. The place was heaving and noisy. We stopped at the bar first and the girls ordered cocktails from a wide choice on offer. Watch the boards for your number to come up... More

Can't visit London without visiting Sophie's Steakhouse. The staff are very attentive, and the food is to die for. Ribeye steak is a must for us and we weren't disappointed. Throw in their onion rings and you are in heaven. Once again, a wonderful visit. Already planning our next trip.

Steak OK but rest of the experience was flat. Disappointed as it was my annual lunch with a very long standing friend. My turn to book and pay. When I found it on-line and saw the reviews I thought it would be much better than it was. Not bad but not a patch on either Smith & Wollensky or Hawksmoor.... More

Description
Great steak, giant martini's & guaranteed fun.

Open all day, ideal for business lunch, post work cocktail, a perfect pre & post show hotspot, fabulous dinner with friends or big blow out with a party.

Our steaks are cut from naturally raised, native breed British beef, much of which we age & butcher in house. Whilst beef is our thing, we have other favourites BBQ ribs, grilled fish, roast chicken, fresh salads & amazing homemade puddings.

We are all about the personal touch & great for any occasion.
