Not impressed with them. First off you need an ID, which they don't tell you on the website. The lounge area and dining area are very close together the noise level is thru the roof. Nice view of the water, but it's dark at the tables all lit by candlelight. I couldn't even see my food. Just wasn't what I expected.
One of my favs
The waiter I had was the worst
Didnt bring out my food I ordered never came to check on me
Amazing experience from start to finish.
Ambiance and great food
Beautiful location. Staff was wonderful
Very expensive. Not much quantity for what you spend.
It was my 30th birthday. We did the prefixe menu and got so much for the money.
Alittle expensive..137 for two plus tip plus parking
Came here for my wife's birthday. Food was quite good. I wasn't too happy with the loud music and the waiter service was slower than I would like to be on a restaurant that was generally empty on a Sunday. That being said the food and view was very good and I'll definitely give it another chance. Price is also quite fair.
Awesome place ... great ambiance! Food delicious... music was a little too loud for a couple date but great for group gatherings.
the spanish food was very good. its nice to go with family or with a date. summerbim sure is even better with the outside seating and the view.
It's been two years since I visited. Nice mature crowd. Brunch was great! Food tasty as always, drinks superb, DJ was dope!, he played something for everyone. I had a blast joining the conga line 😉
One suggestion, keep the hookah smokers away from the dining section. A little annoying to have smoke drifting in face/food. Let them smoke by the bar.
Will definitely be back sooner than later 😊
Music was just too loud
Came for dinner and drinks with a group of girlfriends for Halloween weekend. We had a great time! Recommend!
Had the BEST time at this spot and the food was amazing. The staff was very friendly the music was everything! Will be back again for sure!!!
Though the food, service and ambiance was great, the wait time to be seated was ridiculously long when I had a reservation. The “valet” parking was a rip off. They charge up front a fee of $15.00 for it then are soo unorganized that we had to ask twice for our vehicle to leave. No apologies from the supervisor and cockiness when I asked for a refund because the service was not given for what valet parking entails and that I waited 20 min for my car to be brought to me in the freezing rain and no one once came up to us to ask if we were waiting for our car. The supervisor then provoked me to call the cops if I wanted a refund. Very unprofessional on his part. So I did call them a filled a report. I hope he learned a lesson from my doing that. He should’ve never escalated the situation that way.
Sofrito needs to not deal with such incompetent people that have rude valet employees because it at the end of the day is a reflection on them as a business. If they were hired by Sofrito, then shame on them! They should use better judgment next time and get a supervisor that speaks not just Spanish as he claimed but English as well.
It’s safe to say that I won’t be using that “ VALET” parking ever again! P.S. $15.00 for valet is way overpriced!
The music was just a tad bit too loud that we couldn't hear the waitress (really nice short curly hair woman) at all or have a conversation with the people sitting across from us. We were screaming all night. It's possible that is the vibe they want. We did notice they didn't have as many people staying for the after party DJ. Pretty empty for a Saturday night. But we have a great time. The New Location is GORGEOUS!
Subnote: Whats up with the kiddie toilets? My leg muscles really had to work overtime.
It was girls night out and we had a lovely dinner at Sofrito’s.
I love this restaurant! The decor is nice, the service is good & the food is awesome! If you want to have a good dinner night out, try Sofritos!
The alcapurria and red sangria were both really good. The calamari and mojito were ok. The ambiance and dj was awesome. Great date night spot. After dinner we just hung out at the bar and smoked some hookah. Wish they had more hookah flavors. But overall the hookah was pretty good and lasted a really long time which was nice. I had a pleasant time and will probably go back here.
Food and service was amazing.
Great food & friendly staff, HOWEVER the restaurant needs to work on a better dining experience.
Went for my wife and I anniversary. Waited 30mins for a table with a reservation. When we were finally seated no one greeted us or acknowledged us. 30 minutes passed and no one asked for our order, not even water was given to us. Plenty of waiters passed by and not one looked our way. Waiters were just dancing around. So we just got up and spoke to a manager, whom was pretty rude and did not apologize for anything. So we just walked out. Worst experience ever.
Family and I had a great time. Great service and fun environment.
Wish they go back to massive plates as before but the new added items to the menu make up for all that.
We love Sofrito Restaurant.
Went to Sofrito at their prior location a few years ago and it was great. Clearly it’s under new management. It was very overpriced for what you get. Not very impressed with the food. Just adequate and overpriced 🙁
The service was terrible. Anytime we needed the waiter he was no where to be found. And the food and drinks took a while to come out.
First time here and the food was delicious - Drinks from the bar are good too! I would advise to valet if you drive and make sure u get a great scenic table inside.
Well we got there exactly at our reservation time. We walked in and there were certain areas that were closed off ( she told us to pick where we wanted to be seated but then told us the areas we wanted were closed ) The waitor came to us super quick took our drink order ; we ordered a pitcher of sangria which was suddle wasnt anything crazy to drink. ( personally have had better ) But for the most part the food was amazing. We chose an amazing spot for my best friends birthday ! Thanks again
Had a first date there. We had to sit somewhere not near any speakers, but it was great. She loved the food and the drinks. The wait staff constantly filled out water and checked on us to see if we needed anything else. Even though it was loud, we will be going back. That is a definite. We went on a chilly rainy night, but intend on going back when it's nice to use the outside area which has a great view of the GWB. Also from the inside. Perfect all around.
Awesome love the environment the food was delicious. Recommend it to everyone I know
My husband and I went to Sofrito to taste the food in anticipation of a special event we are planning. The restaurant was impressive with exquisite views of the Hudson River. The only drawback is that the music is played too loud to be able to hold a normal conversation with someone across the table. If the music could be played less loud, the patrons could then enjoy a wonderful evening of fun, romance, dance and good conversation. The food was good, particularly liked the sorrullitos with cheese but fifty dollars for a pitcher of sangria is a little ridiculous.
Pernil was amazing! And the mango margarita! Sofritos has been my favorite from E 57th st to Riverbank.
Always love it, had another OUTSTANDING meal! Hope to come back very soon. The empenyatas are to die for !
Great spot to come and eat. Went for a date night and had a good time.
Amazing! Repeat customer but will always return! Moved locations, now in the beautiful Riverside Park... beautiful brows! Great time!
Food was good , view was great, service was good just on a busy night they tend to rush to have table available.
Went during restaurant week. I ordered from the prefix menu, and my friend ordered from the regular menu, and they were both excellent choices! One of the best restaurant week menus that I've experienced! Wonderful ambience with views on the Hudson! Also, excellent customer service! There is even valet parking.
My first time at this location and couldn’t have been more perfect!
No one told us there was parking. We missed our reservation because we spent 20 minutes looking for parking
Because we missed our reservation we couldn’t eat inside.
Pretty disappointed. Host wasn’t pleasant. The one who took us to our seat actually looked upset. DJ was great though. Food outstanding.
I haven’t been here in 8 years. I just remembered why. Food was great. People not so much.
