I've had a lot of Cuban food, both in NYC and in Havana. This place is overpriced and overrated. A Cuban restaurant has no excuse for making disappointing rice and beans, but that's what Sophie's dissapointed me. Entree portions are small for the price and the food is not flavorful enough. If you want Cuban, head uptown.

The Cuban food is is sort of Cuban, like Taco Bell is sort of Mexican. The rice and beans and ropa vieja are decent, everything else that I have tasted is sub-par. The clientele is also quite rude. Seek your moros y cristianos elsewhere pilgrim.

The food is pretty good. They are a little cheap with the portions sometimes (they actually count each piece of maduro they serve... something very odd for a latin place!). The restaurant is very noisy, the staff is always running and sometimes they get annoyed if you ask for something else, so you better be prepared to ask for all at once. Take out is best option (portions are bigger!). Because it is so crowded the restaurant just gets very noisy, but the staff is constantly screaming... for no reason. Go for the food, it is worth it.

At Sophie's, it's all about the green sauce... and the deep fried pork chunks (masitas). So delicious that our office orders from Sophie's at least once a week.

This place has the BEST cuban sandwiches I've tasted in a long time. I'm part cuban so when I say this place is good, it's GOOD. Cheap prices, huge portions and authentic cuban food. The restaurant itself is kinda noisy but that's with almost all authentic Latin places. I would def. recommend this place to anyone looking for some good food. Make sure you go there with time though because the sandwich service is kind of slow but well worth it. Delicious maduros (just like Abuela's), rice, and beans, and malta sold for a $1. What more could a person ask for from a place in the city! I would def. go back, without thinking twice about it.

Sophie's have great Cuban food and the prices are reasonably good. They are generous with the portions that they give you so you can save some for tomorrows lunch or dinner. I recommend this place to everyone. Don't ever change.
