I've been to several of the owner's other restaurants, this is by far the best! The service is fantastic -- very attentive; great atmosphere; food is delicious & prices are very reasonable. Can't wait to go back!

I celebrated my loving wife's birthday with 11 guests. The service was beyond my expectations expecially with the caring concern of our waiter. The food brought us back to old school style of Puerto Rican cooking blended with new age style of presentation. The music was an added plus. A definite recommendation for all Latinos.

My first impression was not a good one. The wait staff seemed to be confused and distracted when tending to my party. With many tables vacant, I was placed to sit by the kitchen which are probably the worst seats in the place. My party was served dishes that we never ordered and to top it all off, we were overcharged 3 items which were never ordered. The food was tasty so I cannot say the night was a complete bust, but if you do plan to dine there, make sure to triple check your bill.

The food here is AWESOME. I love it. The Shrimp tostones appetizer is to die for! And the Churrasco is so yummy! The hostess has a typical New York attitude, which I find to be annoying, but once you're seated, it's a real treat. The food is extremely inexpensive, and absolutely delicious! I've been many times and never had a bad meal. The Sangria is great too.

I am not sure if the other reviewers ate at the same place, because the food was below average and without taste. There was some mystery object in the chicken empanadas, the beef ones were fair at best and the arroz con pollo bland. It was quite early and the noise was out of control loud. Half the tables were empty, but they push people to eat at the bar and they refuse to spread parties for two out among the tables, instead you are right on top of each other. The hostess and host have quite the attitude. The waiter was good. The place itself is nothing special; it has a bit of a university cafeteria feel to it. If you like big portions of below par food and do not mind not hearing or talking to the people you are with than Sofrito is the place for you.
