Great salmon!

My favorite dish is the salmon with asparagus rice. Also, I like the mojitos. The portions are great, especially if you are very hungry. I tried to think outside the box on my most recent visit and tried a different dish for which I cannot recall the Puerto Rican name. It was mashed plaintains and... read more

Great Latin tapas and excellent Mojitos! We've been here before and it's consistently good. Great music on the weekends and lots of fun to go in a big group. We only tried the tapas but hear that their paella is good too. We'll have to try it on our next trip.

Decided to stop off for dinner on the way home from VA and came across Sofrito. My Spidey senses said don't eat here with the family, it seemed like more of a couples or night-on-the-town place, but the kids wanted a special treat, so we stayed. Interior was very cool, music was lively but not overbearing. Waitress came quickly and... More

This was my first time here. It is an attractive place with some very good food. We arrived during happy hour and the music was super loud . It doesn't make it easy to have a conversation. This is a great place for a young crowd. I prefer the music to be a little more subdued. The food makes up... More

The food is very good and the price is not bad compared with other restaurants in White Plains. My favorite is the steak with rice and beans. The empanadas are delicious.

Great addition to the latin dining scene in downtown White Plains. Sidewalk seating is fun. Sangria is yummy and strong.

Went here for a business dinner the other night. It was enjoyable. Service was top notch. The food tasted just like home cooked. If I had to say anything negative is that the place is awfully expensive. Granted I think being in Downtown White Plains does not help. Check it out if you are in the area.
