    The entire staff were friendly, attentive, courteous and professional. Our server Nicholas was on-the-ball and made sure that we were well taken care of. We had paella, alcapurrias, relleno de papa, crab artichoke dip and bistec encebollado and everything was very delicious! We tried various versions of mojitos (passion fruit, strawberry, coconut and regular) and the taste was not overbearing and appeared to have double the alcohol, so well worth it! Thank you for providing us with a great anniversary dinner!

    OMG....! DONT DO IT! DONT DESERVE ONE STAR. No place to park, but a MANDATORY $20 valet charge, in cash as soon as you arrive. No Refunds... No credit cards accepted tonight, but they have an ATM right near da entrance and if you like you can Zelle da manager if you don't want to use cash, huh? We were there for a birfday meal, they charged us for the sparkler they put on the dessert... we DIDNT ask for any type of "celebration". We asked for shots of Patron silver, chilled... we got sum tequila wasn't chilled, WASNT Patron and it was served in a huge highball glass to hide da less than shot serving and it was priced da same as a full drink, coulda brought a nice full bottle of actual Patron for da same cost. We were asked if we wanted water, they brought us 3 glasses of water... CHARGED US for 3 nonalcoholic drinks. WONT BE BACK AND WILL STOP ANY AND ALL WHO ASK US ABOUT GOING THERE!

    The noise was unbearable due to a large party and staff did absolutely nothing to control the situation. Party guests thought the restaurant was theirs and no regard for the other guests. Had the staff taken control of the situation it would of been a nice evening. I did speak to staff regarding the situation and the young lady who greeted us to our table stated I cannot tell people to keep it down. End result we ate as fast as possible and then we get the $400 bill which added insult to injury!

    It was a Saturday and there was a DJ. The food is delicious and the restaurant has great ambiance. The door man is a little aggressive. people that are clearly over the legal drinking age are asked to show ID. It’s offensive. I’m 54 and my mother is 74 and we were asked to show ID before entering the restaurant. That doesn’t make sense to me.

    We had an overall nice time at Sofrito, food was excellent, drinks were great. Music was too loud outside. We had made reservations in advance to go there with another couple. Considering that we got there early enough at 6:30pm, and also knew that we were not going to be overstaying, we asked if we could be seated outside by a table overlooking the water considering there were plenty available. The hostess told me “sorry, those are for parties” (??) I didn’t want to make a big deal but there were no “parties” going on there until the time we left. The other reason why we wanted to move was because we could barely talk, the speaker was right on top and was difficult to have a conversation. My other observation is that for the second time, we felt rushed to get our food order in. Last year when we went was even worse, we were out of there in under an hour. This time we actually set the pace. As patrons we come to unwind, to be waited at, not to occupy a space and leave quick for your next patron. Be mindful of the people that would like to go out for the evening. I understand you cater to large parties but some of us do not do that and prefer to do small groups, keep that in mind for future reservations.

    We had a party of 9 and the waitress was very friendly at first. She offered the prefix menu, however not everyone wanted an entrée so we decided to order from the main menu. When we told the waitress we did not want the prefix menu she got an attitude and was rude the whole time.

    Great atmosphere. Great food. The only problem I had was food took a long time to served. Also just valet parking available which was ridiculous. I should be able to park my own car in one of those parking that the valet person was using, especially since I was dining in. Not even sure if this was legal for the restaurant to do so, because its a state owned property.
