They used to have exotic birds in this huge cage outside which is an empty cage now. There are so many spider webs outside in the patio, you can tell they don't maintain it anymore. There is a a paper on the door as well as the website states that Dress Code is Enforced which they definitely don't. They should Enforce it specially since they have weddings there a lot. This guy went in with shorts and a tank top on Saturday and was let in. This is not the first time I have seen this, if you want better clientele then you should enforce the dress code. This is a beautiful restaurant where I proposed to my wife and would hate it if it goes down. The service this visit was really slow. The lady was super nice but super slow. The food was delicious like always.

Our waiter was decent no complaints there. However all of our food was over cooked. There was no one hardly in the restaurant yet they sat 3 table all right next to one another. The guy that delivered our food threw my salad in front of me I had to pretty much keep it from falling off the table. Someone recommended us to the restaurant and I don’t understand why. We will not be going back to pay 57 dollars for a over cooked rubbery lobster.

Upon arrival didn’t know what to expect being my first time eating Cuban food, this was a special occasion for me and my husband , our 47th wedding anniversary so I wanted it to be special. After looking at the menu and making a decision it was the best choice I ever made, The food was excellent and service great not to mention the fantastic view...

Definitely recommend this place. Only thing that disappointed me was the unlimited mimosas. Charging 5 dollars for every refill it’s a little to much. I know that the champagne used is a low end one, so the 5 dollar charge per refill is kind of a rip off. But overall everything is great

Awesome as always except me and my fiance asked if we could check out the patio for a quick moment for a potential event and were told yes since we were dressed up but got kicked out by a male staff when we were half way down the stairs.

We go out to eat only on occasions. This was my son's High School Graduation. We went there soon after the graduation ceremony. The restaurant did not do anything special for my son. Nobody even said " congratulations " to him. We liked the bread and asked for some more. The second serving of bread was definitely some store bought bread. They simplify cut it, toasted it, and served it. It was not the same as the first serving. And the food was not good at all. The only item on the plate that I enjoyed was the plantains. Food was not good and the service was bad. The scenery and the set up outside is good, but we went there to eat some good food. Expensive food but not tasty at all. It was our first time there and we don't ever want go there again.

I expected better service from waitress, our appetizers came out with the meal, and checked up on us on,y once or twice, we had to ask the hostess and other staff for water and beverage refills, for the price of our meal service should be comparable, she didn't even come for the bill so after about 10-15 minutes I had to ask the passing hostess who was seating somebody to take the bill. The facility in my opinion was not really packed as we had reservations at 7pm on a Thursday. Service was just bad, usually a manager s around and in previous times asks about or meal or anything we may need, and this experience was bad, we were celebrating our anniversary, and our experience was poor, I would like to add the hostess was really polite and welcoming, very professional and friendly.

Thank you!
Mr. Solis

Coco Palm has a nice view and ambience. Their oxtail dish is quite good; the seafood paella, however, was rather salty (particularly the lobster). Our server did not replenish water enough and we had to ask for water from one of the managers. The manager was friendly and checked on us more than our server.

I like this place however the service was below par. Started off slow and was terrible by end of meal. Our waitress disappeared after we ordered desert. Maybe her shift was over but we never saw her again. I had to flag down a hostess to get the bill and then beg the waitress at the next table to process the payment

Not a good end to an otherwise good meal.

It seems like this place changes owner or directions quite frequently. Prices were more expensive than last I remember. My wife and I only got chicken plates and it cost us almost $60. The menu changed quite a bit from a year ago. Altogether, it wasn't anything special. Food was decent quality, but nothing all that amazing.

Our server was amazing, so sweet and helpful. We ordered ceviche and empanadas as starters which were both delicious. My grandma didn't care much for her plate, but mine (churrasco) was good, and my mom's paella was very good. I would definitely return.

I expected much better. I had a paella that had a lot of seafood and was very fishy. Can't recommend.

The service was subpar.

The view was nice but the restaurant is very loud and the seating is too close.

Dessert menu was sparse.

I'll pass on a return visit.
