    We usually go to the Padrino's on Hallendale but wanted the eating outside option. It was fine but it was a little like eating in the parking lot...Perhaps some plants or something to improve the ambiance should be considered.

    We have eaten here many times, and the food is usually very good. However, on this occasion, one of our party ordered the Enchilado de Mariscos, which includes scallops, shrimp and fish. There was one only one small scallop, but the real problem was the fish. I don't know what kind of fish it was, but it was thin, tough, and unappealing. Should not have been served.

    The restaurant had been recommended by someone and it ended up being exactly what we wanted. Our waitress was serving and bartending at the same time and made some great drinks. If you want authentic Cuban food, this is a must go to place!!

    We found Padrino’s to be a delightful culinary experience! Unique dishes, thoughtfully prepared in larger than expected quantities. We enjoyed appetizers of fried plantains and empanadas- the best I’ve ever had. Four at our table ordered pork, fish, beef and chicken, covering all the meatatarian food groups and each of us were fully sated while our taste buds were overwhelmed with flavor. Rafael was our server, very attentive even though he had several tables, including one large group. The manager?also stopped by the table to check in on us. Don’t let the fact that this is in a strip mall fool you, the interior was highly styled and allowed for social distancing and ease of conversation. A winner!

    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

    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!
