Third time, still a charm...
This is my third review and I admit I was a little over-zealous with my initial review. I wanted Sofrito to be the best in the area because I was looking for an above average night out for Puerto Rican/Cuban cuisine.
So it's been 3 reviews now, and 3 separate times at Sofrito, and I can say without question I was spot on from the beginning. Food keeps getting better. Atmosphere keeps getting more lively. They keep taking better care of my family each time I go. Even something that's not a specialty - Filet Mignon in mushroom sauce - was fantastic (and dipping the fried yuca in the mushroom sauce was amazing!).
I would recommend Sofrito to anyone who likes flavorful cuisine and a fun (and somewhat noisy) night out.

Large portions of excellent Latin food. Friendly, helpful service but when the business slowed down during lunch so did the service

Way too loud for dinner converation
Way too loud for dinner converation even though the music was great. Save the loud music for the late-night and dancing scene!

Only place I will eat at in the area. Great food, fun atmosphere, worth every penny. And the best flan I have ever had.

I work in locally and had never eaten at Sofrito before this.
Food is on point. Specials were amazing and portions were healthy.
Drinks were great. Waitress was super helpful and attentive. The Puerto Rican sushi special was awesome.
I'll be going back soon!

This is my second dining at Sofritos; I can say it keeps getting better. If you are looking for some authenticity than you have arrived. I say Sofritos is a good place for groups or date night, not very intimate because the folks dining are just as Lively as the food. The look is cool and trendy so even if you are older you still feel cool being there. The Service is 2nd to none and our server, Elvis, definitely kept it fun. Sofritos two this up.

Early Friday evening the Wife and I went to celebrate our anniversary with some Latin food. And we didn't go wrong with the choice. The place was not to noisy but with more people, i can see it getting loud. It was comfortable and serves was pretty good, attentive. Good atmosphere for the most part. We sat in the back which might could make a difference in noise but also depends who is sitting near you or the your area. The food was great. My wife both enjoyed meals and even stayed for desert. Definitely plan on going back.

Had an amazing time here! My first time here and didn't expect such a lively scene. Couldn't have been happier with the results. Great menu, huge portions, friendly staff! Definitely returning here very soon!

My husband and I went to dinner on a Saturday night and we were both very impressed with the food. Everything we ordered was delicious. We will definitely go back to Sofrito again.

Fantastic Food and Service
My fiance and I had mofongo, (his with ropa vieja, mine with shrimp,) absolutely outstanding. The cocktail selections are also fantastic; we had 3 each, and were pleasantly surprised to find unique recipes and great mixes. As a starter we had the clams sofrito, which might have benefitted from a little butter, but were still delicious, as was the chicharron.
Our server was great, quick and watchful without being obtrusive or making us feel rushed. In all, a great experience.
My only note: As a Hard of Hearing person, the overwhelming volume of the music inside made conversation a bit difficult, even across a small table. I'd recommend to the resturant that perhaps lowering the volume would be very much appreciated.

Nothing bad to say
The food was great. I went to this restaurant when it first opened and I wasn't too impressed. I went again to try their mofongo and I was glad I did! Mofongo was awesome with stewed chicken and the shrimp in garlic sauce was delicious. Service was excellent! I will definitely return.

Great decor and scrumptios PR food
I ordered mofongo as did 4 of us at our table. I had never eaten it before but was informed by those of us who had that it was the best mofongo they had ever eaten.

I have been to this restaurant several times, the food is excellent. It is reasonably priced and the portions are very large.

Sofrito White Plains
Had eaten at the Sofrito in mid-town Manhattan and was closer to White Plains, so tried that location. Location and decor were nice. It was Halloween weekend, so wait staff was in costumes. Our waiter (Elvis) was very good. Friendly and attentive. Food was not quite up to the other location but still good. My steak could have used more seasoning, wife's steak was very tasty.
Overall a pretty good PR dining experience.

Food very interesting, well
Food very interesting, well prepared, and different. Certainly worth going back to and will bring other friends.
Especially memorable: lobster tacos, eggplant goat cheese empanada, seafood paella

Not prepared fro restaurant week
A group of 8 was exciting to try Sofritos as one of the restaurants participating on the Hudson Valley Restaurant Week. It started well, our server was nice but seemed overwhelmed. When we placed our orders we found out there was no pastel de las 3 leches available, what?.Ok what's there to replace it cheesecake, ok. Some of us ordered the fried calamari with 2 sauces, it was not good , we saw the difference between our plates & the one next to us that order the same thing as an appetizer. The entrees were good. Time for dessert came, our server comes again, sorry no cheesecake available :-(.

Awesome Latina experience
The ambience and decor had a wonderful tropical feel. The food was delicious from appetizer to desert. Music was lively but a bit loud for casual conversation. Portions were great too.

Food was delicious very good. Havent had a spanish stylel the flavor seasoning were very authentic. Service was perfect as well. Cant wait to go back and take my children so the can also try.

Went there Saturday night with friends, and we were all impressed with the food. Our table wasn't ready for our reservation, so the hostess quickly offered us a round of drinks. The place was pretty busy and the crowd was pretty loud, but we definitely enjoyed the food. Standouts were shrimp in garlic sauce, chorizo, potato puffs with beef, and red snapper in a coconut crust. Would recommend and would go back.

Great time and food
I really enjoyed everything there and all of the food .. a++++ for being part of resturant week as well

I had wanted to try this place for a while so when I saw them on the list for Restaurant Week I thought I'd give them a whirl. We ordered from the price fixed menu and it was very good. My husband got the flank steak and I got the chicken. We also ordered a side of beans and rice and this was excellent. The service was also very good too. I believe our waiter’s name was Fernando. We checked out the regular menu and it’s very extensive so we look forward to going back one day and trying something from the regular menu.

We got there for an early dinner reservation and sat in the back....a very comfortable booth and fairly quiet area of restaurant(for such an upbeat and lively place). The food was excellent...try the cerviche! They had a nice drink menu as well. The sangria was made to perfection and the mojitos looked just as good. Our waiter was able to take our drink/food order quickly and answered any questions. He (Stephen) was very patient and friendly. Also, our food came out in little time. Overall a great Friday night out.

Terrific food/fun vibe
We had an excellent meal at Softito's. The service was a little off because we has to ask three times to get our pitcher if sangria. It was delicious though. The food came out in time and was tasty. Would definitely go back!

This restaurant was very good!! They were very friendly and I felt like I took a trip to South Beach, Miami for a couple of hours. Very chic!!! I will be back to try out their salsa lessons!!!
