    New location is amazing. Food and cocktails were great as they have always been. A must stop for upscale Cuban dining.

    Julio is always a pleasure to have as Our server. He is very experienced with wine and was helping train a new server.

    Excellent. 5 of us. Had the fried chicken steak which was very good. 2 had the garlic shrimp which they loved. My wife had the lamb shank which is hard to find. This one is tender. Last was palomilla steak. Had the fried plantains for appetizers was very good. Aye outside with the temperature being cool and comfortable.

    We were pleasantly greeted and seated and had a very attentive waitress. The food is always top notch and it was so again! We had traveled from NJ and went straight to Padrino’s for THE BEST food. We had Lechon Asado, Palomilla, Mariquitas with Black bean salsa and everything was amazing! We topped it off with tres leches for dessert and to our surprise it came with many toppings we could try.

    Consistently delicious. Love the bright and elegant decor. Sat outdoors during a beautiful and cool South Florida evening. Highly recommended.

    We had an amazing lunch at Padrino’s! We sat on the outside patio and it felt like a little oasis. The ambiance and decor is fantastic. Julio was our server. He was fun, attentive, and well-informed. The sangria flight was fun! I loved the Rosé sangria. It has a touch of lavender that took it to the next level. I had the ropa vieja and my friend had the lechon. We ended up sharing because both were so good we couldn’t choose just one. The drinks and food came quickly, the prices were fair, and the atmosphere was perfect for a mid day lunch or dinner. I’ll definitely be returning!

    I ordered Vaca Frita with extra well-done onions. The meal came with sparse, barely cooked onions. I was asked at least four times if I wanted appetizers, which, if I wanted to order an appetizer I would have. When it was time to get the check, the server asked if I wanted dessert, when I told her no, she looked at me very strangely and said not even any Cuban coffee? Again, if I wanted it, I would have ordered it. I should not have to explain myself, especially numerous times. I had to ask for a water refill and was given warm water and no ice. The service was so subpar I cannot say I will return. I used to go frequently to the old location, which was not nearly as nice, but the service was so much better.

    Beautiful restaurant! Amazing food and great service! My only complaint is that I didn’t feel the Latin vibe like other Cuban restaurants. The music was too low and they were playing music that doesn’t go with the theme of the restaurant. Otherwise, everything was very good!!
