  • "What can we say about sofrito. Well the hostess wasn't attentive to us when I told her I had a reservation. The music was very loud. Then I guess a basketball player came in and my waiter and another were sort of arguing over who was going to take care of him. Just because I didn't like it doesn't mean someone else might"

  • "I love coming here all the way from New Jersey. The food is always excellent and the wait staff are great."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "The place is a great party and the food is worth having again. In particular the shrimp empanadas are perfectly crispy and seasoned. The beef empanada filling was bland, but the sauce provided is so delicious that it made up for it. I had coconut crusted fish and it was delicious. Every bite was evenly battered and had great crunch without being at all greasy. Yes, it's loud but we could have a conversation with a little effort. We didn't care because the music was great and it felt like a high energy, fun party. Make sure you dress for a hotspot bar because otherwise you will be turned away at the door."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "The food and staff were amazing. The only negative was that there was a table celebrating a birthday and their noise level was beyond the norm. While I understand that they were having a celebration that did not give them the right to prevent the other patrons from carrying a conversation."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "I enjoyed the atmosphere, service and the food. Music was a little loud couldn't to to my table mates without raising my voice. Music was nice but just loud."

  • "My husband and I went there for diner before a concert and the food was awesome!! My husband order the pernil and they gave him the biggest piece of pernil I have ever seen served at any restaurant! It was soooooooooooo good. Also, I order the monfongo with the ropa vieja and the meat was nice and juicy! Would def recommend this place to anyone!!!!!!!"

  • "The food was wonderful. Sangria was amazing. Good place with live music during late night dinner. Not much room for dancing, but it works if you are looking for dinner and dancing in one location. Waiter was slow during the end of the night and was not very attentive."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "I loved this restaurant! The food was great and the portions were surprisingly large. They had live music playing that wasn't too loud or distracting from being able to talk with group I was with. Now that's saying something considering we were sitting practically right in front of the band. I would definitely recommend this place and I plan to go back."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "Delicious food, great service! However, on a Thursday night, we did not expect that the bar area would be "popping" as if it were Friday/Saturday night at a club. (This may have been because the following day was July 4th, a holiday.) Conversation with my party was pretty difficulty even though we were some distance from the bar. Had we know about the noise level, we probably would have selected a different restaurant since we wanted to talk and catch up. Perhaps the music could be lowered a bit? Nevertheless, the food was outstanding and our waiter was very attentive."

  • "I had to ask for 5 different bottles of wine be for they had one available why have a list of wines but don't have them!!!! Food way over price but the food was very good..... Servers are ghetto and the place is way too dark can't even see the food"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Although the noise level was over the top just remember this place is essentially a club. So don't go expecting a quiet evening. Order in. Otherwise the food was excellent. The pernil was brontosaurus sized with plenty of leftovers for 3 days ( I froze mine). Plaintins sweet and delish as well as the arroz con gandules. I would recommend but go for lunch if the club scene (read really loud music) is not your thing."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "I reserved a table for this place and when I got there they said it's best to call to reserve a table instead of doing it on open table. luckily they were not that crazy busy and had table open. Place was loud with music which is fine with my group but not if your looking for something romantic"
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "I've been to Sofrito three times. This past visit will probably be my last. The hostess spent more time in the bathroom brushing her hair than assisting the patrons, which set the mood for lackluster service from the waitstaff. The food is good though, but it doesn't make up for the poor service."

  • "Overcrowded, a table had to be carried over our head, had to wait 30min for a table although I had a reservation, drink order took 20min to arrive and hostess was rude"
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "It a very small place, they played great music, the food was good but could of been better. The drinks are very good. I think they sould expand the place, gets to crowed to move around. Other than that its a nice place"
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "My overall expierience was fine. We really liked our food and our waitress Priscilla was a sweetheart. Although the blonde hostess who was the first person i saw when i walked in, had no personality what so ever. I dont even think she said hello. Weirds since she should be smiling and greeting everyone who walks in.she was just rude. Otherwise. It was a bit too loud but still ok to eat and listen to music."

  • "I took my girlfriend here for her birthday. Even though the place wasn't crowded, I'm glad we made a reservation. It did eventually get a little crowded, but still was comfortable. My lady had the Surf and Turf, which was scrumptious. I had the Crispy Red Snapper stuffed with Seafood. My meal was delicious also. Would definitely recommend this place!"
    Dined on 4/30/2014
  • "Had been looking forward to it and was deeply disappointed. Food was not that great, waitress rushing us out and level of noise was so loud you could not talk. I should note we were there for a 7:45 reservation. The crowd was also.... Interesting. Most women were in barely there dresses. Not a family restaurant, though there were children there. I would rather make the trip to don coqui. The food there is great! "

  • "I found Sofrito on Groupon. I was excited as my friend and I had been craving mofongo since we got back from Puerto Rico last year. I have to say I was extremely disappointed in the food. The mofongo itself was more of a mush than at all the places we ate in while we were in PR, and was served with "crispy chicken" which was charred and dry and difficult to eat. Our shrimp appetizer was good, and our fried yucca on the side was ok, but lacked enough sauce to have flavor. The atmosphere was cool, the waiter was lovely, and the bar was happening, but I'm sad to say I just did not care for the food."

  • "Great food - efficient, friendly service. The pernil (roast pork) is humongous! A delicious left-over for the next day."

  • "I celebrated a friends birthday here on a busy Saturday. The restaurant was packed and had guest waiting. The wait was decent but that's because we had a reservation that we missed so it took 20mins. The decor is nice however the white chair I sat on was stained. Its a club vibe with a DJ playing latest club hits n Latin music. That can make It hard for you to hear you convo. Food was delicious and priced well. My waiter made me feel rushed to finish my meal n go quick to desert. I later realized that I had an additional charge on my credit card statement that sofriotos charge me without me knowing. I still dont know what that charge is for since I specifically signed and paid for our dinner without that charge. I wouldn't go bac"
