    I had made dinner reservations for my husband and I’s anniversary. We arrived 5-10 minutes early from our reservation time and were seated fairly quickly. We were seated at a nice view like we requested in the reservation slot. At the beginning it seemed that we were being waited on in normal time, however once our order went in for food it went downhill from that point on. The appetizer took some time to come out but at least it wasn’t cold. The waiter took very long to ask for refills and we waited a ridiculous amount of time for our food (close to an hour) and were never updated about what was going on. That hour seemed to have flown by because my husband and I were entertaining each other’s company. By the time we got our food it was cold as if the waiter left our food sitting because he forgot to bring it to us. The food was mediocre and seemed as if the restaurant uses old or cheap food selections. My husband and I picked at our food and only enjoyed the side of rice and plantains. Being that our reservation questions asked specifically why we were dinning in, we were not acknowledged about it at the restaurant but other guest were acknowledged for their special occasions. Overall it was a horrible first time experience and we will not recommend or ever go back ourselves.

    I made a reservation but still needed to wait to be seated for at least 15 minutes. After I checked in, I reminded the host I had requested outdoor seating. It was a good thing I did because he hadn’t even read my request when he checked me in. Once seated, there was a long lapse between ordering our drinks, receiving them then ordering. Otherwise, the food was good and the service improved.

    I have been going to this restaurants for years and it has always been a great experience with the quality of food and service. However, this past Saturday was not the same especially with the quality of food. We had a party of six people and we have all been there before many times in order to be able to compare experiences. I had the oxtail which this time was very dry and the taste/seasoning was not the same. The congri/moros that came with it lacked taste and it was as if the rice and black beans were mixed together at the last minute and not cook together as they should be. I was looking forward to the guava cheesecake which has always been delicious and this time not only was it not delicious, it did not even look like cheesecake. It had a very yellow color to it, the texture was like that of jello and the taste was of scramble eggs. I could not eat it and just left it there. The rest of the people in our party had similar comments in regards to the food as they had other things like roasted pork, roasted chicken, seafood paella, etc. I understand that prices have gone up due to the financial circumstances that we are all experiencing at this time but if your prices go up as they have, the quality of the food should not go down. I am sorry to say, it will be a while before I decide to go and try this again.

    Absolutely incredible food. Everything we tried was delicious! The menu HAS CHANGED as far as PRICES so we a bit surprised when we arrived. Nevertheless, the flavor was worth it. Our server was so friendly, attentive and everything you'd want from a restaurant like Coco Palm. Only disappointing parts were, I made the reservation specifically so we could be there for sunset but the table wasn't ready. It was empty and dirty but it took them almost 15 minutes to clean and set it up. Unfortunately, the sun was down by the time we got outside to our table. The both little ones had tenders from the kids menu ($14) which included 4 tenders and a plate full of fries AND that's all. Yes $14 and not great chicken. (My kids review 3 stars ) Another minor disappointment was, we were there to celebrate my daughters birthday. When you make reservations it asked if you are celebrating a special occasion. When I let the server know she informed us that the restaurant does nothing for the guest. So why bother asking during reservation? Considering MOST restaurants do SOMETHING, (singing or free dessert) and the cost of our meal was a few HUNDRED DOLLARS it's unfortunate that they don't do even a scoop of ice cream. Other than that on a strictly food based review the food was very tasty and a must try!

    We've only always eaten Cuban food at a little neighborhood joint and love it's homey atmosphere and delicious food, but we wanted to try a more sophisticated dining experience. Coco Palm did not disappoint. The food is high-end and modern, yet retains all the charm of our favorite little neighborhood joint. If it were closer to where we live, we'd eat there more often; however, it IS definitely worth the drive, and we plan on making it a part of our annual trip to Pomona to attend the L.A. County Fair.

    Maybe it's because I'm from South Florida so I've been eating Cuban food since childhood, but I found this food to be the worst Cuban of my lifetime. Just greasy, salty, flavorless dishes. Pair that with terrible service (we made a 6:15 reservation because we had 7:30 plans and didn't receive service until 6:40) and you've got one terrible dining experience. Definitely will never be back.

    Been coming to Coco Palms for over 10 years and the worst experience not only there but at any restaurant I’ve visited. Was seated 30 minutes after my reservation time. Waited 10 minutes before our server arrived. 30 minutes to wait for 2 appetizers. 45 minutes for our main course. Never an apology or explanation from anyone until I spoke to the manager who blamed the kitchen. He apologized and offered a free bottle of wine which was declined. This was a management problem of over booking, not a kitchen problem. Was a terrible experience for a special occasion of Mothers Day.

    I went for my birthday which lands on Cinco de Mayo, and I had reserved an outside seating table for a party of 8 a week. But once we got there for my reservation there was already a party sitting outside (mind you there was only two tables outside available because there was also a wedding happening). Therefore we waited for the outside seating to clear up but instead my husband went to talk to i believe the manager who did accommodate us and set out a table for 10 (since i ended up adding 2 more people) outside in a private event section which made my visit even better. But we did get seated an hour after, at 8o'clockish, I wish it would have been done sooner. Although there was a big delay and no prior communication of the situation (not being able to be seated outside and even when they called to confirm my reservation they confirmed with me that there will be outside seating) we did have a great server, we enjoyed the food, and the view. It was a good restaurant just not sure why they require reservations if they did not honor mine.
