The staff was very pleasant while sticking to all COVID guidelines and restrictions. My party was large but broken up and spaced out properly but we didn't feel distant. Thank You. The food was abundant and delightful. We will definitely be back!

The ambiance and the views of the GW bridge were great. I did not like that we didn’t have an option to park our own car. Had to pay $15 valet to take it a few feet away from the front of the restaurant. The taste of the food was good and the drinks were ok. Definitely didn’t like the 18% gratuity for a group of 4 of us.

The place is really cute and the music is on point but the service is absolutely terrible. I made reservation for 6 and they told me they don’t do parties larger than 6 but there were many tables sitting inside with over 6 people. My reservation was at 8:30 they didn’t seat us until 9:30, the workers did absolutely nothing to help us get our table smoothly. Mind you I made this reservation a week before. The girl who was sitting us kept saying 10 more minutes, while 30 minutes passed. We didn’t leave because they charged us for valet parking so we knew getting our money back would’ve been another argument. The food was alright and the drinks were great. Our server was the only good thing about the experience. Would not recommend, wouldn’t come back either. There’s many other dope places you can spend the worth of your money without going through this establishment disorganization.

The food was definitely very good, but if they are going to serve steak for brunch they should cook it the the customer wants it. The steak was left untouched, other than that the food was good.

The food was amazing however security ID my 15 daughter.. when I made the reservation it did not indicated Any age requirement so I don’t understand why she was a ID if we was just there for a family dinner.. I could understand if my daughter was ordering liquor but to get ID at the door is ridiculous.. she was scared

I just thought when we got there n waited for food they shouldve given us chips n dip or bread something while we waited bc it was at least a 30 min wait for the appetizer. Than another 20 after that for the brunch food. The food was good not the best.

First times the charm!! The reputation truly precedes this place. The atmosphere was modern, hip,trendy without trying too hard. The wait staff was attentive and the food portions were generous and still maintained the taste of abuella's home cooking. My first visit and I promise it will not be my last.

I am so glad my family picked Sofrito ! From the min you walk in they take importance to follow Covid 19 procedures. Temp check professionally and friendly . The service was attentive and on point. The waiter knew the menu and was very awesome. The place is beautiful and very clean. The servers were very attentive and kept out table clean and free of dirty plates. The food was amazing and very flavorful!!!!

Food as a whole was awesome the churrasco was tender and juicy and cooked to my liking(medium well) the Morfongo was fresh, moist and delicious not dry and hard like some other places I've been to, and the PERNIL was outstanding but beware only order it of you're really hungry or can share with 2 or more people the portion they give is huge I think they give you the whole pork shoulder...I highly recommend the alcapurrias as an appetizers best I ever had, not even in PR had I ever had an alcapurria this good! Music was not too loud which is good you don't have to shout to talk and the night time view of the Hudson River and GWB are spectacular, will definitely go again sometime soon.

The restaurant is located in lovely riverside lack and the staff were helpful and exemplary. Unfortunately the food was bad. I ordered the mantaditos( apologies as spelling is wrong). The shrimp and meat topping were poorly spiced and cold and completely soaked the tostone they were laid on. It arrived soggy. It was likely made hours in advance and then served without being reheated or checked. Ate one and left the rest. However, my friend loved the vegetable empanadas

Celebrated two birthday's on Sunday night. The service and food were very good. I've
traveled to Puerto Rico many times and the food at Sofrito is authentic.

Sitting outside in October was pleasant with our own heat lamp. Food was served without waiting and suggestions for different dishes were great!

The only drawback was music. Far too loud even for a festive place. We could even hear our waiter when we first sat down. They accommodated our request to lower the music but is only went up as time went on.

Overall, I'm going back for more Mofongo and Pernil!
