Squaremeal Review of Sophie's Steakhouse Chelsea ?

Good for sober midweek dining as well as Friday-night revelling, this Fulham Road fixture made its name with British beef, and the kitchen now butchers and dry-ages all its carcasses. Crowds continue to pack the conservatively cool space, with its blood-red banquettes and stripped brickwork – although we were expecting more finesse in the presentation of Sophie's headline steaks and burgers. Elsewhere, the kitchen excels with vibrant starters of hand-picked crab with coriander, while puds keep it traditional with fruit crumble and cheesecake. The weekday express menu is cracking value, and well-drilled staff are helpful when it comes to the carefully chosen wine list.

Not what it used to be ...

I used to really enjoy Sophie's, however, I have been three times over the last year and have been very disappointed each time. £27.95 is not cheap for an 8oz fillet so you expect it to be good, but the last three times the cooking has been off, and worse the quality of the meat has not been up to standard. Steaks were over cooked and dry, and the meat was not tender. Also the creamed spinach, which use to be fantastic, was tough and stringy, and the baked potato was under cooked. I have given them...

Decent steakhouse but no more

May 2013

Sophie's, I have discovered, is one of the central hubs of Chelsea for the young/middle aged crowd to go for drinks and eat copious amounts of beef. Like a moth drawn to light, my partner and I ventured out to join the masses and overall had an enjoyable evening. The first thing to note is that reservations are not allowed, which means either get there early, or be prepared for a wait. The bar is competent but not outstanding in its drinks quality, but nevertheless was packed with people waiting....

There is little one can say about Sophie's Steakhouse. Fantastic for steaks. Other dishes look very good also. Sides are traditional steak house types – creamed spinach. Very buzzy atmosphere of chelsea professional types. Does get very busy and therefore could have to wait up to an hour and ten minutes, as happened on one occassion arriving there at 19:45 on a Saturday, but the wait is a testament to the good food, great atmosphere and friendly staff.
