“Vegetarian food in a Cuban restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2011

Tucked away in a small nook in Manhattan , near Wall street is this little cuban joint - introduced to me by my friend. To my surprise it had more vegetarian options than I had seen in most us/european restaurants.

The place is a bit old fashioned, wooden benches and little elbow room, but food is excellent and fresh.

Worth a visit.

“Decent food for good prices - nothing special, but good enough”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2010

After walking around a while in the Wall Street area we felt hungry. Based on some online feedback we chose this place for lunch.

It's quite a small place, but we still got a table right away (many people here do take-out anyway). It's more of a buffet-style restaurant, but you not grab your own food, they will serve it to you. But all the food is pretty much already prepared (and kept warm).

Service here was really friendly (despite the fact that it was really busy!). We went for some Pork Chops and Grilled Chicken Breast. Both with Moro rice and plantains. The sides were really good in the end. I really like plantains.
The pork was pretty good, but some parts of the meat a little chewy. The chicken breast was quite dry I have to say. Both meals could have been better spiced. So, nothing special.
All in all it's okay food they serve here. Good to grab some when you feel hungry. But nothing outstanding. But very fair priced! Of course, there's better Cuban Restaurants (like the Versailles in Miami), but for a quick meal this one will do.

“Great lunch portions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2009

For lunch, Sophie's is reasonably priced. The food is very good, and the portions are generous.
