  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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"

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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"

  • "I really enjoyed dining at Sofrito. The food and cocktails were delicious. The only down side of such great food is not ebing able to fully be present with each bite due to the very loud club music playing! The loud club music would be the only thing I change about the restaurant."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "This restaurant seemed like it wanted to be more of a nightclub than a restaurant. The music was very loud and the bar area was jumpin'. The food was good not great and the portions were large. It's a little pricey for what it is. The service wasn't that great, okay at best."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "The food was good.. A bit loud but that's ok. What I didn't like was the service it truly sucked.. The waiter was a bit blahhh .. I had asked for desert but the check was also put on my table with the desert.. We wasn't ready to leave we were planing on more drinks.. The lady was standing behind me waiting for the payment!!! That made me furious !! So we just left.. Ended up else where for drinks!!! Never again .. Don't rush people out!!! You never know how much they are willing to spend!! Not only that it was only 10:00 on a Saturday!!! What type of service is that... Sorry first and last time!!!"

  • "There is no respect for the reservation list. The hostess had the worst attitude, the bar tenders paid you no attention as they were too busy smoking hooka and on their phones. The floor manager had no idea how to manage the table, it was just an upsetting experience all together"

  • "For someone who doesn't like to eat seafood, tasting my boyfriends seafood dish was the best choice that night. The chicken With mango sauce I had came and I thought it looked dry. But I was so wrong. It was so juicy and tender I was actually surprised. Great space and music selections. Price of the food was reasonable and selections was great."

  • "Sofritos during restaurant week provided a good selection on the menu. However it was WAY too crowded. They squeeze you in like sardines. It felt like the Blue Note. Also the tables were parties of 12 and 16 people. We were bumped twice because of them having to seat a larger table. So we waited an additional 45 minutes although we had a reservation. So much for reservations if you don't have 15 people with you! The music in the bar area was anything but Latin. They should have named this place Mamitas B Smiths, because its latin cuisine with R&B. There is NO DANCEFLOOR so don't think you are coming to salsa or bachata like the location in white plains."
