I went last Sunday around 6 to find out I did it have a reservation because they don’t use Open Table! Finally got seated and what a waste of time! The food tasted so bland!!! The waitress got my entire order wrong as well. Glass for my wine smelled terrible then the waitress tells me that maybe I’m too sensitive? No I don’t like drinking from a glass that smells like someone licked it, gross! The yuca was the worst part of our meal. Never again

Went here for Valentine's dinner and it was exactly what we were looking for. It was busy so the service was a little slow, but completely reasonable given the occasion. Food was excellent and the drinks were good too.

I really don’t know where to start but I will give it my best! My wife and I had an amazing and delightful experience at Padrino’s - Dania Beach. Let’s start with Rafael. If I am giving rating of 1-10 he is a 15. It wasn’t my birthday but he danced around the restaurant satisfying every need we had. Extra Chimichurri please “I got you”, can we swap a dessert for a Café Cubano “I got you”. He was simply fun and exciting. Best service I’ve had in a while. I highly recommend him if you are at the Dania Beach location. I am 3 hours away and I will come back one day and hope to God he is still there. Him being there made the experience, made the night, my wife and I can’t say enough about “I got you” Rafael! I am not ready to stop glowing about my experience yet so hang tight. My wife and I got the flank steak (extra chimichurri), empanadas, flan, sangria, and a Café Cubano. ALL things were delicious and we not only enjoyed the taste but felt there was great value with our meal. Please consider opening a location in Merritt Island Florida and send Rafael up to manage that location! We had a blast and glad we found this treat!

Food was tasty, waiter was excellent. Took the bar tender entirely too long to make my mojito & then it was awful tasting like an olive (mixed in a dirty shaker) 😝 would try again but skip any & all cocktails!

The food is subpar, able to find better food at a regular Cuban food chain like Latin America. I wouldn't recommend this place.

We had a delicious meal with outstanding, friendly service. The power went out while we were waiting for our dinners, and they gave us a beer and a glass of wine while we waited for the lights to come back on. It was fun!

There to have lunch with delegates from Sweden. One concern is they told me there was no reservation for me and would not seat me at a regular table.

We live in Oregon and Alastair’s go to Hallandale location so our First time in Dania was a treat. We enjoyed all the same delicious foods and they had a duo band that was authentic. Fatima our server worked hard to keep us fed . It was excellent.

The service was slow for a non-busy night. My dates seafood order was over cooked. I left feeling a little disappointed that I took her there and was hoping it didn't leave a bad impression on me.
