This is our third time visiting Sofrita's.... and this is a second review. We wanted to make sure that we let folks know that service seems to have improved. No small thing for this otherwise busy resturant in a town with not much to chose from. First, we noted some small changes to the menu. We had brushetta (warm artichoke... More

went to the Thursday market and found this place. Sangria was so tasty and don't get me started on the guacamole . That is the best I have had. Then a nice combo of tomato bisque and grilled cheese. We sat on the patio . That was very nice. Super nice staff

Have been here twice and felt the service was atrocious both times. No more for me! It is a great location and nice outdoor seating. Too bad it is all spoiled with poor service. Umbrellas are too low and impede the sidewalk as well.

Downtown Fountain Hills is really lovely again as construction project looks be ending. Much like the other reviewer we also stumbled upon this restaurant. It looks warm but not too fancy from the outside. We ordered small plates, avocado and tomatoes, street corn elote, followed by pork pernil. attentive service and really tasty food. This is a charming little restaurant... More

As a new resident of Fountain Hills, we literally stumbled upon this restaurant while taking in a casual stroll of the city. This restaurant is amazing, the menu is quite extensive (we were there for lunch), the outdoor patio is cute & charming with scenic views of the surrounding mountains, and the outdoor patio is dog friendly for those of...

This is my fourth time at Sofrita's. A small restaurant that knows how to do small plates Mexican style. I've enjoyed their chicken salad, bacon wrapped dates, fried calamari with sweet coconut lime and mustard aioli, and the wonderful possibilities with the street tamale choices. The small taco's are wonderful and the mixed cocktails inventive and delicious. The price/s are... More

Apparently people who have had cancer are not welcome here. I tried to put together a dinner party for 30 at Sofrita. At first they were accommodating and helpful, however, as the event came closer, I still had not had a correct menu, based on what I had discussed with the manager, Stephanie. It was not difficult – a soup,... More

After seeing this restaurant reviewed on PBS's Check Please program it occurred to me one day to take my friend out to see the famous fountain in Fountain Hills and to have dinner at this place. That was back in April 2014. She and I were warmly welcomed into this cozy little establishment and were not for want of service... More

Good food, nice location. Inept staff. If you go, pay in cash so they don't have access to your credit card so they can bill you multiple times. They charged my credit card once prior to the tip, which is normal until you sign the receipt and add the tip in. But they did not take that charge off until... More

Love the outdoor patio dining. Sofrita's has a delicious happy hour, with great prices. The staff is very friendly. At Christmas time, the median on this village street is filled with a lighted holiday display adding to the ambiance.
