It was so nice to get out because of covid. The restaurant spaced the tables. The oversized windows gave a full view of NYC. We had 1 appetizer (empanadas) 2 meals (filet and short ribs), 1 side a bottle of wine ($50) which they brought out (2 small bottles) and opted for 2 espresso martinis instead of a desert because they didn't have churros. Total bill with tip was almost $300.00. The entrees were artwork and tasty. There was a 4 piece band but, you were limited to sit at your reserved table for only 1 ½ hours. As it was a joy to get out, I wouldn't go back until it's 100% normal to get the full experience and it would have to be a special occasion. Spending $300.00 for 1 ½ hours is half a months groceries...just saying.

Don’t know if it was the time of day or the snow outside, but I was not impressed. The service was outstanding! Food was just ok. Not impressed by the drink I had. That’s where I was let down.
I will try again when it’s warmer out to try the patio for brunch.

Went there for Valentine’s Day and wasn’t impressed. They ran out of one of the entrees on the Prix fixe menu. They also were not following social distancing guidelines as the restaurant operated as normal. The table behind us was very close & it was as though they put us in the “cheap seats”. The high tables (which I do not like and had no choice) were located near an emergency exit so there was a draft. I wanted to like this place, but between the poor table setting, mediocre food (which was kind of pricey) & very expensive valet it’s fair to say that I wouldn’t dine here again.

Overpriced food, poor quality, and horrible service. Our waitress Johanna was not attentive at all. Busboys and managers were helpful. We ordered red sangria which was very good and tasty Also, the pre-fixe menu for Valentine did not have any Cuban food options at all. Save your money and go somewhere local.

The service was impeccable from start to finish. The pear salad and lobster taco was good and flavorful. Taco were tiny though. Entree was skirt steak. It was salty and rice was warm. Plantain was the hottest item on the plate. Drinks were sweet but not enough liquor. Dessert 4 leches was ok at best. you are truly going there for the SERVICE and AMBIENCE!

Beautiful restaurant with amazing view on Hudson River and NYC. I’m assuming most people come to this place for the view, I was not expecting great food, however food was surprisingly very good, we had ceviche for appetizer, salmon and filet mignon for entrees, food was delicious, service was great, they make very cute drinks however they also cost $15-20. This a good special occasion place, it is pricy but for this type restaurant it’s expected. Would definitely return.

We had a reservation and was seated right on time. The service from Daniela was excellent. I loved her recommendations. I enjoyed the sea bass and my boyfriend had the roasted chicken. Everything had great flavor and very well balanced. The ambiance was excellent. We were celebrating his birthday and had a great view of the city line. We appreciated management coming by to check how everything was going. It made us feel cared for. Oh also the oysters were nice and fresh with a tangy sauce. I would definitely recommend and return again. I had put a note we were celebrating a birthday and when dessert came , they sang for him. I didn’t even have to ask! I love the attention to little things like that. Can’t wait to return again.

I arrived to the restaurant and was blown away by the ambiance. It was my first time as I was referred by my friend. She could not have referred a better restaurant for my husband and I to attend for my birthday. Our waitress was very kind & attentive and the manager was very accommodating. They wowed us with a birthday song and desert. The view is breathtaking and the food was awesome. I look forward to going there again. I can only imagine the experience in the warmer months. Thank you Son Cubano for making my birthday unforgettable.

Checked in at 7:15pm and they made us wait at least 35 mins to actually sit us down. Many parties came in after and they kept moving us around because the lobby was packed. It looked like the restaurant was operating at 80% capacity instead of the 25% legal capacity. Once we sat down though, the waitress and food/drinks were pretty good.
