Every week I like to try new ethnic food. Last week I was craving for Spanish food and I came across to Sophie's Restaurant. When I went to Sophie last week, I was very excited because I am a fan of Spanish food because its my culture. I ordered rice & seafood casserole with a side of platanos. To my disappointment, the rice was under cook and it did not taste good. It was under seasoned. As for the seafood casserole, I was so disppointed because this is a staple food of common spanish folks. At first I thought it was just because the cook had a bad day. But I was very persistence and I decided to give them a try again today (Monday 12/13). To my disappoinment they have failed me again for the second time. Rice is the easiest thing to cook and yet they managed to mess that up. This time I had Pernill and it was under seasoned which does not taste like your typical Pernill. I had black beans on the side and that they also messed up. As you walk in, I feel like I am rushed to place my orders because you have 3-4 people asking you "To stay or to go". The meal cost $9.80 which I honest believe is way to expensive specially for the kind of meal you're getting. I definitely do not recommend this place to others. I will definitely will not return to this place again. Such a Disappoinment!

Go early if you're going, because this location is a feeder from the main location and seems to run out of food. I ordered a sandwich, was told to wait, was still waiting 30 mins later and was eventually told they'd run out of breads, etc, as I was waiting. Rather frustrating experience, and it's probably an exception, but I won't be going back.

We took a group of 34 college students to the Lexington location and all went smoothly. Most of us were Hispanics (picky about Latino food) and LOVED the food at Sophie's. The prices were great as well - you can't find better Latino food for the price anywhere in midtown. The staff were very nice, patience and accomodating. The place is cute. We were very pleased with the experience.

I had high hopes for this place because I love Cuban food, but was greatly disappointed. I ordered the cuban sandwich. It was smashed on the panini pan for at least 3 or 4 minutes so it came out super flat and crispy. It didn't look good and it didn't taste good. I will not be going back.

Not only is the food great, but unlike a lot of places, they are friendly and helpful over the phone, taking their time with taking your order correctly. It sounds dumb, but sometimes it's nice feeling that you're a valued customer, even if it's just ordering lunch.

I eat at Sophie's like once a week. They have really good food for an excellent price. They give you just the right amount of food which isn't bad for $8.75 which comes with 2 sides. Their fried pork chops & grilled chicken are the best. The service is really quick also. They bring your food out in less than 30mins. So if you're looking for a place to fill you up Sophie's is the place to go. Its better than a restaurant.
