My wife and I were looking forward to finally dining at Sofrito. To start off, we sat down and realized the music was blasting. I felt like I was in a disco. We found it difficult to have a conversation without having to practically yell at one another. With almost every other review describing the same issue, you would think... More

If you're looking for a quiet dinner for two then Sofrito may not be for you. With music in the background you must raise your voice to be heard. Privacy can also be compromised as tables for two are beside each other. No question this restaurant caters to large party groups. Food-wise - contradictions rule. The "Crispy Calamari w/Calypso Sauce"... More

Looking for a hotspot in White Plains with excellent food? Look no further than this lively, fun restaurant/lounge/bar. Trending decor. The place to be seen on the weekend in White Plains. Their sangria was the best I have ever tasted. Food was excellent with a great waitstaff.

A pleasant surprise in White Plains. Puerto Rican food prepared beautifully, with an ethnic touch that's admirable. Kudos to the owners...they really made us feel at home.

We started dining at Sofrito's during the Restaurant weeks for lunch and dinner in the Hudson Valley in the past couple of years. The Arroz con Pollo , Rice with Chicken, is a very ample dish, the Steak dishes are excellent too. We have had excellent Margarita's and Mojito's there. The seating is comfortable and service is excellent. The atmosphere... More

We started with barbecue shrimp in a rum glaze which was fantastic and a favorite of ours. For entrees we went with the BAKED SALMON on a Banana Leaf with Barley Green Pilaf and Creole Sauce and *MAHI MAHI Grilled with Mango Salsa over Coconut & Pineapple Quinoa Grain and Almonds. They were both a fantastic taste of Puerto Rico... More

We went here Saturday night, at the suggestion of my brother. Although it is loud and crammed, I have to say, the food I thought was better than I had in Puerto Rico a couple of years ago. Everything was very fresh and big portions, excellent drinks. I would definitely return and personally was shocked to see so many negative... More

Had a horrible experience with The Melting Pot, left and came to Sofrito without a reservation on Valentine's Day. They welcomed us, seated us right away and the food was amazing! Everything is good and the staff is very attentive to your needs. It was our first Valentine as married and they made it even extra special. Thank You Sofrito... More

I have been to Sofritos a half dozens time with co-workers from around the U.S., family and friends. Every one of them has raved about the food and service. First, let me say this. I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, so I grew up eating the food since the day I was born. I also travel a lot... More
