It was very nice. The food was very good. I definitely feel like the food is over priced, but I think you’re paying for the atmosphere.

I had a reservation for Valentines day for 8 45 pm. I arrived at 8 35, I didn’t get a table till 10 pm. The bouncer and neither the host was asking people for reservations, people with no reservations were getting in before us since they got in line before us. 5 couples in the line who arrived later then me waiting behind me were let in first because they were 2’s and we were 4 people. I drove in from NJ, it was a terrible experience having to wait over an hour outside in line in freezing cold weather even with a reservation. Terrible, wont repeat. There’s no point of rsvp.

Even if you make an appointment there’s a chance you’ll have to wait outside if it’s on a busier night but it’s worth it

Of the plan on having ppl wait outside on the line, I would suggest getting heating units for ppl outside.

I waited for a long time outside even though I had a reservation for 7PM. It was freezing and by the time 8PM came I was still waiting outside in a dress - because it was Valentine's Day. The vibe inside Sofrito made up for it though. Food was amazing, ambiance was so fun and the drinks were great. I did feel rushed by my sever but I know it was because the wait was long. I was really looking forward to going to Sofrito so I was a bit let down by my first experience but the food and drinks really made up for it.

I do like to support good restaurant establishments in the neighborhood. Especially during a time like now. However, on this Valentine's evening, they lacked enforcing proper social distancing and felt they had more people in the restaurant than they should have. Also, they were disorganized with communicating to those at the back of the line the delay in reservations. Clearly they over booked and people were standing in the cold waiting for their table and not social distancing.

This is my second time going and Sofrito is amazing, the food was delicious (best churrasco I’ve ever had). Only thing is we were kinda being rushed out due to it being Valentine’s Day but all restaurants do that during the holiday. Excellent music, super fun ambiance, the musics extremely loud since there was a live MC making it hard to hear the other person talk. But i would 100% recommend and will definitely be returning. Beware they do Id at the door !

I used to love Sifrito specifically for Brunch. My boyfriend and I went to Sofrito Brunch on Valentine's day. The food was bad. It was serve cold and it had no taste. I had the stake and eggs with homefries. The eggs and homefries were cold and no taste. Tge stake was ok. My boyfriend had the baby paella and the tres leche French toast. The paella was cold and tasted like if was reheated from the previous day. Not fresh at all. Hot food should be hot and served hot.The complementary mimosas tasted horrible the sangria was ok. The only thing that was fresh and tasted good and serve hot were the appetizers. I had the ham and cheese croquettes and my boyfriend had the Carne frita. I don't know if is because they just reopened or what but the Brunch food was disappointing. I hope they try to improve because no one wants to go a restaurant eat tasteless cold food. The Waitress was very nice. The service was good. We good seated right away. Just the food though. I probably go back but to dinner not Brunch.

Empanadas were really good. The atmosphere was nice and I could tell it would be even more beautiful at night. Hate that my mimosa was in a plastic cup with an extremely long straw. Overall, I would definitely visit again
