Authentic and delicious

The arroz con pollo and maduros were as good as I ate in Cuba! I didn't give it 5 stars because it was a little dirty and the service wasn't all that great. Still, I would go back, especially since you can get in and out quickly for lunch during the week.

I like to try different cubanos when I have the chance. This one was pretty good, but when I combined it with their green sauce it became AMAZING. The fried plantains (maduros) were good. I'll probably come back when I'm in NYC for business again.

Great sandwiches at reasonable prices. Make sure you get the spicy green sauce for your meal. The maduros looked excellent too.

I always like trying different foods and found a place that serves good Cuban food. I enjoyed the pernil with rice and beans this time around but everything I've tried at this place is pretty good.

I stop by Sophies once every couple weeks for their steak and onions. Please dont expect it to be a "steak" though. It's more of a not lean piece of thinly sliced meat. While the steak is not top notch, i think of it as a vessel for the onions and the green sauce which will make a brick taste... More

I had hear rave reviews of this joint, but maybe I caught it on an off day, I had the chicken and black beans, I didn't think the food was that great. I've eaten at Guantanamera as well as some Cuban restaurants in Hoboken that were MUCH better than this place. The service at lunchtime is abysmal and there are... More

We ate at the Sophie's on 45th and it was excellent. Food was fresh, tasty, and reasonable. Had the Cubans, beef stew, tamale, empanadas. Very good! Also had codfish which we sampled and was very good..just didn't want that much food. Servings were generous enough for a hearty lunch. Worth trying.

I made a trip here for lunch after learning that lunch is pretty much your only option at this location as it closes at 4pm. The food was delicious - I had one of the varieties of chicken with rice and beans. Lots of choices and all looked delicious and many in line were frequent fliers (I probably would be... More

Staying in Financial District

Neighborhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
