don’t bother making a reservation on open table. as per the manager “it’s not an actual reservation, it’s just your name on the list” which wasn’t even true bc we had to write our name and number down.... they’re using open table as a bait and switch to get people in thinking they have a reservation but then telling them they have to wait 30 mins. complete scam. food was good when i had it on uber eats a couple times before actually visiting the restaurant. i won’t be doing either anymore.

Prices are ridiculously high for the location and the place itself. I expected so much more from this place and left very disappointed. Food is ok. Service is really good. Staff very friendly but the prices will keep me away from here.

The shredded pork was a bit dry and a bit too salty. Everything else was delicious, including the drinks

Decent brunch and food overall. Main complaint is I selected outdoor dining when I reserved weeks ago; when I got there they said sorry indoor or nothing. My wife is 36 weeks pregnant and we were hoping to keep our group outside. Inconsiderate and sort of false advertising. No apologies either. On top of that they tried to tell our group of 9 we had a 90 minute dining limit. I get that restaurants don’t have full capacity (though they seemed to be doing fine), but we were a large group and rushing people in and out is still not good service. I fear restaurants are going to try keeping that “rule” in place post COVID.

My second time dining at The Cuban but i’ve ordered food via ubereats. Hands down the best! Coconut shrimp and calamari was on point. The pollo sofrito and charrusco amazing! Great value for good portions. The drinks are great my fav are the rum cha cha cha and red sangria.

I went out on a brunch date. The restaurant had outdoor seating that was pretty nice since the weather was good. For $8.50, you can have unlimited mimosas, champagne punch or a Bloody Mary for 90 min. The food was really good as well as the coffee! I ended up having the huevos cubano. I would recommend to those in the neighborhood to check out.

Hostesses were very rude and disrespectful, was seated 45 minutes after my reservation time. The hostess sat us in a horrible seat as we pleaded to be seated in another area away from the bar. A very horrible experience with salty disgusting food. It was my birthday and to be Frank it was ruined. I will never go back there again.
