    Never Again....

    We were a party of 5 we went there to celebrate a birthday. They said, the wait would be an hour needless to say, we waited 3 hours. They kept saying we would be seated next and they kept seeting other people. When we finally got to our table they gave us the menu and another waiter came and took them away. The food was very dry and then they had the nerve to rush us. I would never return again. They need to decide if they are going to have a restaurant or a night club. It is very loud and crowded. Our night was totally ruined, by the time we sat down we were so upset we couldn't even enjoy ourselves.

    Will not be returning

    We were a party of 5 and they did not allow reservations. They were very busy so we waited 65 minutes for a table since they screwed up names. Food arrived cold, waited never returned to check on our table except to [drop] off the check. We hadn't paid the chech yet when we were being asked to move our party to the bar so another table could be seated. Manager was quite rude about it actually. The food flavor wise was OK , it was overpriced, overcrowded and the staff was was rude. I see no reason to return

    Must do it again

    I enjoyed the resturand a great deal. The food was very Criolla. I heard about it after reading about Reggaeton artist Tego Calderon giving a good review in the Newspaper. He was right. Now that I have a better job and could afford the prices I plan on going again soon

    Rushed....yet satisfied.

    After hearing so much about this place, I finally went last Friday night. No reservatins taken so we waited about an hour. It was worth it! The bar area had a great atmosphere the music was old school salsa and freestyle(YEAH!) - the time went by quickly. Once we got to our table we were waited on by very attentive and amicable waitstaff - however, every part of the dining experience was rushed. I felt like they were trying too hard to get us out of there quickly. The food was absolutely delicious - from appetizer to dessert - but what is up with the 8 people to a 4 person table? A lttle sqeezed in, but very satisfied otherwise. I will go again (with a smaller party!)

    avoid sitting alongside parties

    The food is terrific, the service super but we had the misfortune of sitting alongside a large party group that could not stop taking flash photos- so the enitre meal we were blinded. About 100 photos were taken within a half hour and no one on the wait staff asked them to curtail the photos. The partiers told us to get a new table- fine but there were none at that point. So, beware if you are seated by a large table marked reserved. No one will come to your assistance if you are blinded- you are not even offered coffee forthe trouble- Bad approach to discomfort.

    Complete Disappointment!!! Don't bother!

    Let's start with the res made a day in advance. When our party arrived, they said that they didn't have a reservation for us and that they had overbooked the time slot so that we'd have to wait about 40 mins. The hostess was rude and made it seem as though we arrived late, which we didn't. After waiting, & starving, we ordered our meals. The pernil was very dry, the Paella's rice was flavorful, but the actual seafood in the dish was rubbery and disgusting. The mofongo was dry & sauce was something that my niece could've made. No real garlic flavor..and the platano tasted old. The beans were good, that is all I can say about the dinner. Dessert tasted stale....How could you get 3 leches to taste old? They did. I was expecting so much more from this place since I heard such great reviews and would've set aside the annoyance of having to wait an extra 45 mins for a reservation that we set for 7 people, a day ahead (which they lost and tried to peg on us, so disorganized!!!) I don't even mind the music or the ambiance...us latin people love to party. But truth is...Sofrito's is on Sutton Place---act accordingly. Perhaps, this should've type of food should've stayed in the Bronx, where it originated.

    The Bar

    A group of us went to sample the bar atmosphere after having dinner somewhere else. The quasi-graffitti writings on the columns didn't appear as very "artsy" to me...but, I got over it quickly. The service at the bar was top shelf as the bartenders were very attentive and amicable. The background music was nostalgically pleasing. The bar area was spacious and comfortable. Here is where the bomb fell. We ordered 4 shots of Patron tequila at $15 a pop. The tequila in that bottle was not Patron. Anyone who's had Patron would know right away just by sniffing it's bouquet and experiencing it's smoothness. This tequila was harsh with a bitter after-taste. It's hard to say if it was even Cuervo. I'd go back but I'm sticking with bottled beer. I gave the food a rating of 3.0 only because I had to fill in the field for this review...I would write down a n/a since we didn't have dinner.
