Everything was great, but for the price of the food it was not enough food. The food was great, I felt like the food was a tease. It looked like an appetizer. I had steak, shrimp scampi and fried plantains, very good, but not enough food for 39 dollars. I enjoyed myself, I was sill hungry when I left.

Went here years ago for my bffs bday. Had the time of our little lives. Fast forward took my sis here for her bday at its new location Uptown on the river. She loved it! Food was the best part. They already included a service charge 20% tip so that took care of that.

I made a reservation for Sunday the 3rd at 230 over the phone, I even called the day of to confirm my reservation because at first it was one for 1:30 but the hostess expressed that time wasn't available. She the, offered me the 230 reservation which I accepted. When I get there, they didn't see the 230 reservation, only the 1:30 that I ALREADY cancelled, so that was pretty upsetting. I then, had to wait about half hour for my table to then be RUSHED out. I understand it's a busy party on Sundays, but I AM a paying customer, and we shouldn't be rushed while eating. The ambiance was nice and the music was good. The service felt extremely rushed.

If you want a beautiful place that you will feel rushed to eat from the minute you sit this is the one . Otherwise pretty place and good music though no lounge, service was ok since everything is tacked on the bill anyway what’s the point in trying to give great service . Kept having to take my plate back from server

The view is outstanding and during the summer the outdoor seating is perfection! The food is delicious and the bar extensive. The service is where they really fall short. During the winter the window seat have the hot air blowing right into your face. It's hard to keep your eyes open. When we asked to move the waiter could not be more displeased with the request. We were surrounded by empty tables, so finding an alternative wasn't the issue. We made sure to finish our appetizers and waiting until all the dishes were cleared before asking and before the entrees arrived. Still he huffed and puffed and we just stayed. He didn't want to lift a finger to move us.

My partner's food was cold. He ordered the tres golpes. I had the Baby paella. It was really good. The service was good overall. The waiter was attentive but not overbearing. The ambience was excellent. It had a beautiful view of the Hudson.

My boyfriend and I drove in from Connecticut to have dinner here and my only negative remark is that we had to wait an hour past our reservation time to be seated. Besides that during our wait and entire dining experience we had an amazing time . All the staff members we encountered were happy and friendly . Our server recommended amazing drinks for us and the Dj played music that catered to everyone and the lighting made it really romantic . We will definitely be going back when the weather warms up !

My family and I have a great experience. The place was beautiful and the employees were very helpful, courtesy and professional. We made reservations for 10pm and wasn't seated until 10:30ish. We sat by the bar which was okay. Other than that, great place!

We were here to celebrate my birthday and another friends. the waiter took forever with our food then it was cold. I got a spoon of rice with a half of pork shoulder. It had not taste as if it was just boiled. 2nd table next to us said the same. Waiter rushed us out as another reservation was waiting. Wasn't even an hour and he rushed us to get our bday cakes with candles and told us to go sit at the bar as people were wating. NOT ACCEPTABLE!! We spend over $400 for our terrible food to be rushed out and told to go the bar like children! Waiter wouldn't even take our group picture and we gave him a great tip either way.

TERRIBLE SERVICE, TERRIBLE EMPLOYEES AND TERRIBLE FOOD!!!

I enjoyed the ambiance of the place very much the food was also very good, however our waiter seemed to never be available, the food took very long to come out even though the place wasn’t very crowded and the music was uncomfortably loud, I saw other patrons complain about this before and I thought they were being picky but it is way too loud, I literally couldn’t hear the person sitting next to me and had to yell my order to the waiter.....I love the scene but can’t see myself going back until the summer when maybe I can sit outdoors

I went to Sofrito for restaurant week. While the food was good, I don’t think it was worth the price. Great views of the west side and the GW bridge. The ambiance is beautiful for a date night. The valet guy dropped my keys in the rain and was kind of rude, but service inside was impeccable.
