Very Good Puerto Rican Food

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.

My friend and I had lunch here. My first impression was OK. We were approached by the waitress fast and she sat us down. 3 times she kept insisting on us having a drink where we initially told her, we were not there to drink but just to have a quick lunch. She still insisted. OK. we ordered two dishes,... More

Absolutely nothing special or memorable here. The octopus ceviche (an appetizer) was over spicy, masking the flavor of the octopus. The entree - slow cooked pork (pernil) was horrible - far too fatty, and served with tasteless rice and plantains. Service was friendly but slightly amateurish. A disappointing first experience and I won't be returning.

Sofrito in White Plains is amazing!! The shrimp mofongo was perfectly cooked and the Arroz con Pollo was full of flavor. Definitely a place to return to. 😀

I expected more. The food was mediocre. The service was slow. Staff was disinterested. Won't go back.

This place is well decorated, from the street looks like it has some nice potential on it's corner location. When you order the food the experience is underwelming, drinks are expensive and your expectation of the bill for lunch is around $50 and whop $90 thank you. Service was also underwelming as we were the only people in the restaurant... More

The food is good at Sofrito's. The restaurant is clean and very and modern looking, all in white. At the table they brought a basket of delicious root vegetables free of charge. We started with a big appetizer composed empanadas, tostones, fried meats and many ed other fried foods... It was good but too many fried things. We odered tasty... More
