At Sofrito, the aromatic mix includes authentic Puerto Rican Cuisine, magnificent world music, Caribbean atmosphere, delightful living room and dining room decor along with professional courteous service taking you back to La Isla Del Encanto.

Diner Reviews
  • "The brunch was great but the music was too loud. It caters to groups but you're unable to speak to each other given the level of the music."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Food was delicious as always. It took quite a bit for our appetizers to come out but the manager gave them to us on the house. It was my birthday and I was disappointed our waitress did not ask if we wanted dessert or coffee. Other than that it's a nice spot to eat."

  • "After one dinner at Sofrito, i can honestly say that it is nice respite from your typical dining environment. The waiters were informative, polite, and I never felt rushed. The food was prepared well, and I would certainly have dinner there again."

  • "Good food, fun atmosphere. A bit loud, not really a date place but fun with a group. Only complaint is that our main courses came when we were only halfway through with our appetizers. I asked that the food be brought back to the kitchen until we were done and the waitstaff looked a bit put out but otherwise it was a nice dinner. "

  • "I love their food, however, they usually mess something up. I'm gluten-free aka no bread and sometimes they give me a bread sandwich when I ask for a Jibarito. I have a wheat intolerance! I can not eat bread! Now on to brunch. We didn't get the unlimited (1.5 hrs) brunch, but I'm sure that's a fun time. The brunch menu was pretty extensive. Not only did they have the regular Sofrito sandwiches but the menu also included specialty brunch items. Again they didn't have plantains, but atleast they told me so I could order something else. They also didn't have their Yuca fries which was very disappointing, but they did have "Yuca Homefries"... All in all I will definitley return, I just wish they would get their food issues together. "

  • "Sofrito White Plains is a really lively and fun restaurant offering lots of tapas and cocktail options. We were there to celebrate and had a wonderful time - the food was great as was the service. We dined on a Saturday night and used Open Table to make a reservation. Reservations would be highly recommended as Sofrito was constantly busy during our full night there."

  • "Great food with ample portions. Friendly and attentive service. Lively atmosphere."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "Perhaps the service was strained from the Groupon crowd, but it took over 20 minutes to get a menu, another 15-20 minutes to place an order, 20 minutes for the appetizer, then over 30 minutes to receive the entrée. The waiter was completely distracted and spent less than 2 minutes speaking to us - we had a better relationship with the bus staff. Food made up for the disappointment in service."

  • "My Wife and I went there for dinner and the service was terrible. We waited 20 minutes to gets drinks and the food was average when it finally came out. They even had the nerve to charge us a 20% gratuity even with the horrible service we had! We would not go back there again after our bad experience."
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "It's a noisy place that serves the so-loved by somebody big portion of food that are almost tasteless and greasy; some people loves it other loves to eat out when they want to taste something special. Unfortunately for me myself belong to the second category so I was pretty disappointed. The service is poor and the metre accommodation and cordiality simply poor! for sure plenty of better place around to have a nice MEAL!"

  • "This was my 2nd visit to Sofrito in White Plains. The previous visit was when it first opened. The food is fantastic and the atmosphere is fun. The waitstaff is very friendly. While the food was still delicious, the place has become a bit run down and could use some touch ups."

  • "An overall positive experience. We'll be back to try orher items on the menu."

  • "Got together with some old college friends to enjoy some good Latin food. It was the perfect spot as we could laugh and talk without anyone hushing us. The wait staff was friendly and the food was great and plentiful, just the way I like it. I would difinitely recommend to a friend and I will be back for sure."

  • "Food was pretty good, however, service was terrible and unprofessional. The hostess sat us and left us without menus. The waiter was rude, impersonal and unpleasant."

  • "Highly recommend the Ropa Vieja!! Outstanding. Great service,"

  • "Food and service was very good. Too noisy for my taste but probably not for a younger crowd."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "Even though the menu was a little different then was posted on line it turned out to be delicious. The only problem we had was we parked at a meter and no one would give us change of a dollar. The other thing was they only gave half a portion of flan, which was really cheap on their part. We've been to many restaurants during restaurant week and this is the only one to do that."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "Great interior design. Extremely pleasant staff. Even good food. However, even though the Restaurant Week site, the open Table site AND Sofrito's own site listed Sunday as an Restaurant Week day, they ran a Groupon that day and cancelled RW. After a 15 minute " I'll check with management " wait we were told an exception would be made. Our meals were good, but we all ordered Flan and were served A half if a flan each, with a cherry atop some and not on others. Our drink order was slow and then one drink was wrong and two Margueritas were overdosed with line."

  • "Went on a Saturday night and had to scream (and I mean scream) for the people at our table to hear each other speak. The noise and music was much much too loud!! We were in the front of the restaurant sitting directly across from the bar. They have a back room which we did not know about -- ask to be seated there. It is quiet back there!! Other than that -- the food was very good!! We enjoyed that!! And also had good deserts!!"

  • "Hmmm...I think I had one of the best sangrias I've ever tasted at Sofrito's! The food was absolutely delicious. Wonderful, attentive service. Lively and fun atmosphere."

  • "Service ambiance food were all 5 stars! Went for a birthday celebration and were very pleased with recommendations of food and drinks. Great portion size tapas and dinners. Sangria a must! We will be back with friends!"
    Dined on 1/5/2014
  • "Our group is very demanding and has high expectations. We were pleased with the excellent service. Management greeted us twice to make sure all was well. No request was too big. We asked many questions as the menu was new to us. The portions were huge and everything was delicious. We ate until we could hold no more and had plenty to bring home. Posted pictures of food on fb and have already made plans to return with a different set of friends."

  • "The food was very good I had the sea bass which was very flavorful and my friend and I enjoy the salad before the meal it was great and the service was excellent."
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "Food and ambience were wonderful. The front room, including the bar, were Very noisy. We sat in the back room, which was considerably quieter, except for one large and very noisy group. It's too bad that there isn't a separate room for large groups (or maybe there is another room that I wasn't aware of)."

  • "Very impressed. Excellent food, wish there were more of us so we could order more dishes. Good vibe, nice people. Will return."

  • "when restaurant first opened in white plains mgmt. was watching carefully to smooth out expected new opening issues. as time went on the place was on target as a good destination spot. now who's in charge? wait staff needs to be replaced, they have no idea, the kitchen needs to watch more carefully as to the quality and the temperature of the food. food sitting too long in kitchen, witch may also be from a poor wait staff. get your act together my boriqua friends."

  • "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!!!"

  • "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!"
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."
