We were lured in by a Harlem Restaurant week advertisement and they weren’t participating. We made a 5:30pm reservation and was seated 40 minutes later. This is my second time giving them a try although the service is always crappy, the food is overrated and overpriced. You’re better off getting authentic Puerto Rican cuisine in Alphabet City on the lower east side- better quality, better service!

I’ve been here before everything was awesome! However tonight was terrible. I made a reservation for 8:30pm. I was on time yet the host told me it’s busy so I had to wait. A whole hour and 15 mins pass and the host is there looking dumb and confused because I question again why am I not at a table eating when my reservation was made an hr and some change ago. The response just irritated me so I left. Yet had I been over 20 mins late you would cancel my reservation. Very unprofessional and it put a bad taste in my mouth.

The valet was nowhere to be found, which made us late for our reservation. When he finally came, he was very rude. We had 8:30 reservations. We got in at 8:37 and had a very long line. We were not seated until 9:23, and that was only because I kept repeatedly telling the host that we had been waiting for a long time.

Despite having a reservation and arriving 30 mins early, we were seated neatly an hour after our scheduled time. The food took an eternity and even with the excess time the food was undercooked despite my clients’ specifications. All of these factors made my us very anxious, what was originally intended to be an immersive experience into Latin culture and cuisine for my clients was a tedious and dreadful night. The ambiance was overwhelming, the “DJ” would have been great for a night club scene but the subpar mixes and constant vocal interruptions made it impossible for us to even enjoy the music. Overall, I’m rather disappointed.

Everything was great.
Besides the fact that I had a reservation and the host skipped over me twice and went to 2 other parties before I had to tell him he seated others before me.
But it was great drinks, great food, get waiter, music kept me in my seat dancing.

Very beautiful place, food was delicious. It was a bit pricey since it was a Valentine’s day event. Music was a bit loud so not really the place to have a conversation or a date. But overall great music and great atmosphere.

I went to Sofrito with my boyfriend for Valentine's Day and found that the portions were a decent size, but not entirely sure if worth the price.

I definitely would return to try more dishes. The pernil "pork shoulder"dish was a lot for one person. The taste was amazing. Our server was great! She let us know gratuity was already included which I might of overlooked if she did not point it out. I also appreciated they had Valet service to avoid the cold weather walk to and from parking.

No parking so we had to pay for valet service, then we had to pay to check our coats, and our table was not ready. The noise was unbearable as they had a live DJ.

Lively, festive atmosphere. Beautiful views of the Hudson with the GW Bridge glittering in the background. Drinks were excellent. Try the Sofrito Old Fashioned. Food was delicious and portions are gigantic. A shout out to the staff who is charming, knowledgeable, and appropriately attentive. Reminder: great outdoor space in the summer

There was a service charge of $26 and we were only a party of 3. Have no idea why that was automatically added to the bill. It was a little too loud. Could barely here my friends.

Enjoyed the atmosphere and the view. The food was good not excellent. The service (at the table) was HORRIBLE. Sub par! Needs to be addressed. If a tip was not already included I would have left NONE! The bartenders were warm, receptive and provided great service. The hostesses could be more attentive and greeted with more interest and a smile.
