Some of the food was tasty. However, they don't serve coffee on weekends but offer desserts. They want you to eat and not hold the table for too long and that is why they don't serve coffee on weekends. There were a few birthdays and they startled a few of the patrons with blaring music to sing happy birthday, like they do in chain restaurants.

Went there with my wife and a few of her work friends. We were sat at our table after maybe 5-10 minutes since we had made a reservation through a party promoter that we use when we go out. The food came out after about 15 minutes and it was great. I dine at many latin restaurants and I was satisfied. Thanks for another Hit Showtime.

I have been coming here for years. Went Friday night. Food was sub par. I had the seafood paella. The seafood had no taste. The rice had no flavor. What happened?

Sofrito's on East 57th Street was a huge disappointment! The decor reminds one of a night club, with loud music...the food was very disappointing...bland, cold...and very expensive...The service was so slow...you forgot what you ordered....So not worth it!

As a 60 year old puertorican who knows his culture, I must say this restaurant does not come anywhere near at how puertorican cuisine should be made. My wife and I ordered the alcapurrias de yuca and the taste and presentation certainly needed a lot to be desired compare onto how it should be made. Our main dishes, the seafood salad - you needed to look far and deep to find the calamari and octopus, too much vegetables. And lastly the asopado de langosta, the taste was more towards bitter, very little rice and the price was not worth the meal. To all you out there, I know for a fact, you can find better food in the bronx than in Sofrito's. P.S. and I travel all the way from Long Island to be disappointed.
