The cavernous but nicely decorated restaurant vibrates incessantly with the sounds of Latin salsa that the mostly Latino clientele do not seem to mind. I found it too loud. However, the food is very good, the portions gargantuan--most everyone walks away with a doggie bag--and the prices excellent.

The food was just ok. The waiters rush you and they don't bother to answer your questions. They are overpriced, the drinks are epensive and not that great. I went with a group of people and we felt ripped off. they kill you with gratuities even when you order a couple of drinks that you pick up at the bar yourself not even served by them. for a fancy restaurnat the bathrooms are small and not very attractive.

This spot had a good run but now it is done. Rice and beans with a bit of meat is now $30, and the drinks are watered down. Sofrito is officially over.

The food is excellent & big portions!My only complaint is not enough stalls in the bathroom & they do kind of rush you. Other than that I had a great time!

When to a birthday dinner at Sofritos, on 59th and 1st, there were thirty of us. The service was excellent; the food was more than plentifully and very good. I had the steak, with rice and beans and had to take half home. There were about six birthdays party and the staff sang happy birthday one table at a time. The dinner was a little expense cost me over a hundred, but I had a great time, you only live once. The only compliant I had was the rest room is very small and the stall door couldn’t be locked. They need more rest rooms. All, and all I think it was worth it. .

After waiting 1 hour to be seated, the waiter rushed us to take our order. He brought out our entrees before we could finish our appetizers. I told him I was a vegetarian and I wanted the Camarofongo WITHOUT PORK. I took one bite and noticed there was pork in my food. I complained to the waiter and he quickly took my plate assuring me he would investigate. Ten minutes later, he came with the bill!! He didn't even comp. the meal!! I complained to the manager who offered to buy me a drink. This was the third and the last time I went there. I would NOT recommend this to anyone I like. Besides the drinks, it has always been a let down.
