    the hostess, Jasmin is a doll. She is so responsive and attentive. Has such a bubbly personality and that is everything you need and want when coming to Sofritos. The music level is just right, live DJs is a plus!! Now the food is just amazing. You must have the SHRIMP Empanadas and their Pernil. It is literally a whole pernil! Another amazing lunch is their sancocho! You will never go wrong. Definitely go there! On a busy night be mindful and wait. You can always munch at the bar ( in and out ) before your table is ready. Will forever come back!

    Made reservations at 7:00pm and didn’t get seated till 8:00pm. Hostess attempted to accommodate to a table but other members of the staff were seating people without communication. System was a complete chaos. Defeats the purpose of accepting reservations. When we sat down many food choices on menu weren’t available. I understand this venue can get pretty busy but these circumstances should be forecasted. Not the greatest experience. Hope management acknowledges improvements must be made.

    Service was fair, I appreciate the waitress finding a table for us inside the restaurant since it was very windy for my infants outside. The music was good but very loud. We are a restaurant not a club. The food definitely needed work, the chicken was extremely dry. They didn’t have a what I wanted which was churrasco and they gave me a very hard thin steak that was hard to chew. The salad did not look fresh at all. The drinks were perfect. Overall I do feel that this place is okay because of the scenery but everything else needed work especially since it was Fathers Day. Manager was nice he even shook my husbands hand before we left.

    When ever we walk in the door you are made to feel very welcome. The energy is through the roof I love it. The view is amazing great for taking pictures. The food is very good well seasoned red snapper, shrimp and rice a couple of my favorites dishes at dinner. There brunch is also very good I would recommend making a reservation. Because they are always crowded.

    The DJ spinner a mix of music. Catered to all things Caribbean. Altho it’s a prican restaurant, there are mostly Dominicans that frequent it seems and the patrons are every color of the rainbow. Good space and good times. Ppl randomly just dance in open spaces. Bushes cover most of the view, but nonetheless the water makes it feel relaxed. Drinks were pricey but done well. Service was very decent.

    The food was pretty good. Mojitos were delicious and strong. Vibe was on point. The wait was longer than expected although we had reservations… still waited 30+ minutes after the text that indicated our table was ready. But we waited at the bar so it was cool.

    The grand Vista looking up the Hudson and over the George Washington Bridge, the joyous music, the gracious host and waitress, Alta, and the lovely tables make this such a happy place to be! This was my first time trying paella; is it supposed to be dry, or is there supposed to be a sauce? It was fluffy, not chewy and there was only one muscle that wasn't open. The calamari, cherry stones, lobster, shrimp, sausage and chicken were lovely. The roasted red peppers on top were the highlight for me Dash delicious! Lots of sangria, rich desserts and a glass of Prosecco made for a warm glow that matched the beautiful shifting shades of light in the ceiling. I will be back!

    I attended sofritos yesterday. The scenery is beautiful. The food was great, the drinks were strong and the service was outstanding. My only hiccup is I wish they’d include side dish and dessert prices. I ordered a side of avocado which was $10 and a cheesecake dessert which was the size of my palm for $17. A bit overpriced but overall it was a great experience.

    A beautiful birthday dinner at Sofrito! They accommodated our late arrival and didn’t rush us out the door. The food was amazing! Planning my next trip as we speak. We ordered the pitcher which served about 5 of us at least a drink and half… amazing ambiance on the water. Kudos to the DJ who kept the music flowing.
