I love to dine and I love food. I am Puerto Rican and was expecting some upscale hispanic cuisine. I don't mind paying money for quality food and new culinary experiences. But instead, I got food that didn't taste better than a local around the way restaurant. It was a shame to pay $23.00 for paella that I could have gotten for $10 and would have tasted better. And for the dessert which should have been the topping of the meal, I ordered flan that was obviously from a box! Nothing gourmet about it!

My husband and I kept hearing about this restaurant so we finally decided to come. The atmosphere is very elegant but I can see why some would be slightly annoyed with the constant birthday outbursts. We heard 3 in one hour. We arrived there when it first opened so there was no wait. The place was not crowded at all. The waitress was a bit in a rush to take our orders so I could only image if had gone during peek hours. The food was well seasoned but was overrated on tasted in my opinion. I would not go back for the cost. There are many local restaurants with better quality food and cost less.

the food here is awesome too bad you can't enjoy it because they rush you throughout the entire meal. they are asking you if you want it "to go" while you are still eating and the waiter was in such a hurry to clean our table he spilled food all over us (no apology either). the manager who thinks he's a badass with his walkie talkie didn't even buy us back a drink after food was spilled all over us. if you are looking for the worst service in manhattan sofrito is definetly the place for you.

So, i went to Sofrito for my 21st birthday. I went at 4pm so there was no wait. It was so wonderful, food is great. The portions are huge, really worth the money. Atmosphere is awesome, i love the music , i can't wait to go back.

Everyone kept telling me about this place called SOFRITO. Finally without anymore delays, my husband and I went. I have to say that we really enjoyed ourself.We went on a Friday early evening. We sat down right away. The food was wonderful, well seasoned. :-) We really like the set up and how it looks inside. Although we have not been back to sit down and eat, I've been drving by and picking up food to go. I just loveeeeeeeeeeeee the shrimp empantda with that sauce they give you on the side. Look forward to my next night out in Sofritos!!!!!!! Spanish Harlem In the House!!

It all started with the door man. The door man was rude and almost did not let me in because I was wearing sneakers. Meanwhile about half of the restaurant was wearing sneakers. Is Sofrito a club or a restaurant? I don't mind dressing up if I was told before hand, but there is no signs or postings stating that one has to dress formally to go the restaurant. Then my friends and I were moved about three times within the bar area because each place were either sat at or stood was reserved. I didn't know the "bar area" was a reserved location. We had to wait by the door where it was freezing cold. The hostess was very snooty and we were told about 3 times that our table was going to be ready in a few minutes and that we were next. Meanwhile after 2 hours of waiting we never were seated and decided to leave.

I went with a group of 7 for dinner on a Thursday night. We were waiting at the bar for everyone to arrive and I found the hostesses to be on the snotty side, and the bartenders extremely aloof. Our waiter was really nice though. The food was on the greasy side and just kind of boring actually. The mofongo was pasty and mostly tasteless, I was shocked. The atmosphere was fun although I have to agree with others that the non stop happy birthday singing gets really annoying, as does the cheesy KTU music. This place has so much potential but its just not a "nice" place.
