    I've been to the Cuban many times and have always enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. However, this time it seems a beat off. The wait staff and the service was very disjointed. We were asked by three different staff what we want to drink and then waited for 30 minutes before it came. I am giving them the benefit of the doubt that this was just an off night

    Food was great but the Guantanamera special (3 pcs shrimps, one chorizo, small flank steak, 6 pcs short ribs) for ONE person for $70, was a bit pricey. We suggested that the price for the specials should be mentioned when offered so it won’t be a surprise when the bill is presented. This was a downer for an otherwise satisfactory dining experience. Also, when we arrived and told receptionist we had a reservation, she replied we don’t have reservations, only waitlist (?). Told her I was confirmed by Open Table.

    I went here with my girlfriends for the first time and loved everything about this place. First of all, our server was very sweet and friendly. For the food, we ordered their appetizer sampler and everything was soooo good. For entrées we ordered the paella, steak and lechoncito. I would say they are very generous with the serving and there’s absolutely nothing we didn’t like. We also loved our drinks, it’s on a stronger side FYI. Other than that, I love this place and will definitely come back again.

    My family and I came here after my cousins graduation. Let me say, the staff there are wonderful! They had drinks which they said were amazing. They had seconds. We also had empanadas, beef, chicken and shrimp. All were amazing! Our entrees were great as well. I had a Beef entree. I do not recall the name but it was very good. I would definitely recommend and come back again.

    Had lunch on 5/22/22 party of 12. Had to wait 1/2 hr for table even though reservation was made 3 weeks ago. The older gentleman at the front desk wasn't a happy person, seemed more annoyed than anything else. The service seemed under staffed, but the waiter was very friendly and did his best. The appetizers were great and most of my party had good things to say about the food they ordered.

    I was looking forward to dining at The Cuban having visited their Garden City location in the past. The speaker system in Bayside was terrible with a DJ playing music at levels in which no-one could hear each other. When the floor show began, the music level with the canned applause pushed the experience from bad to worse. a server/food runner came over to us and asked how the guacamole was, we said that it had no spice (we asked for it to be medium in spice) and if he could make it a bit more spicier. Instead of saying yes and taking it to the kitchen, he began to debate the issue...finally he obliged and upon its return it seemed to been put through a blender and was now a thick soup consistancy and yet still bland...The evening was disappointing to say the least.

    Had reservations but when we got there (on time for the reservations) they told us the kitchen was closed and that there shouldn't have been reservations made.... the manager was verynice and sat us anyway and went to tell the kitchen that we were still going to order food..... but no sooner did he sit us n hand us a menu, I was in the middle of takin my jacket off and the waitress came over n asked if we were ready to order... I said we just sat we need a minute. She then continued to say "well the kitchen os technically closed so you don't have a minute.. so can u please look at the menu quick n order " ( as if "please" made her less rude) she stood there over me rushing me to order woth her pen on the paper ready to write.. I just gave her a look... I understand it was incomplete that the reservations got booked n she was probably tired but in all honesty we were still customers .... n she was bartending for an oner 1.5 hrs any way so it wasn't like she was going home. She continued to rush so I just said the 1st think that came.tp mind.. steak.... the food was good the manager was great but the Denver/bartender could have atleast ''acted'" nicer

    I’ve recently discover this gem of a restaurant. It stays consist with Cuban culture, music and cuisine. The staff are all delightful…the managers, hosts and bartenders especially. I’m glad to be so close to patronize this establishment more often. Check out the weekend live entertainment…Much appreciated during a date or night out with friends.

    Our waitress Was outstanding. She was so kind and outgoing. She was so patient with my son and gave excellent food and drink recommendations. The atmosphere was mine blowing. The Music, lighting and dancing places this business above all others. Weather your looking for a quick bite or celebrating a special occasion, this is the place to be.

    Overall I would go back. The food was great, the service was excellent, the proportions were large. The only issue was the noise. It was a Tuesday night and they the DJ was blasting the music. Normally it would be great, but on a Tuesday? Seemed kind of random.
