This place must be managed by thugs. My advise is to never go to places like this where they have intimidating bouncers outside. Never go to places where waiters are arrogant. Never go places where they put a man in the bathroom soliciting money and where they force you to leave your credit card as tap. Be smart. Avoid places... More

For starters, we enter and the person that greets us asks what he can do for us, not how many in your group or would you like to sit for dinner or sit at the bar? We were very puzzled by the person's attitude. He acted like we weren't supposed to be there. The person doesn't have a smile and... More

Our waiter, Noel, was fantastic. He made sure we had everything we needed. He filled out drinks OFTEN! The food was delicious. I got the pernil with the... More

Went here on Saturday with my friends for our monthly brunch. Highly disappointed!! I've been to the old location several times and never had an issue. Our food was warm not hot and it was ok. Our waitress was the worst!!! Once she took our orders we barely saw her. We were supposed to have unlimited mimosas and/or sangria. She... More

We went to Sofrito for my friend's birthday Celebration. The view of the Hudson River is beautiful. There was nice music and some people were even dancing. The food was average, nothing stood out and we had to send the sangria back because it watery. The parking was $15. I am not sure if I would return again in the... More

I went to the new location at 679 Riverside Dr, New York, NY 10031 for drinks and appetizers. The place is big and really nice compared to the old spot on 57th Street which was narrow and small. However, we ordered a bottle of wine and as usual the waitress gave us a taste of the wine once she opened... More

This place has an awesome view, good drinks and nice Latin cuisine. When they have a DJ playing live music do not sit outside near the speakers. They blast it abnormally loud and you can't hear the person sitting next to you. They turned it down after our first request but pumped it back up. We talked to 3 waiters... More
