Although we went on a very stormy night and a Wednesday, we were pleasantly surprised by the level of service. We will definitely be back

Son Cubano provides a great view, ambiance and food. Honestly I forgot how good it is. Had dinner with a friend, we had the empanadas and ham croquets to start. Both were really good although I preferred the empanadas better. The crust was light and airy so you had all the flavor of the filling which was chicken, beef and veggie.
We both had the salmon miami which is salmon with lobster mash, cucumber relish and a mango chutney. Don’t think they need the mango chutney. The salmon was cooked perfectly. The lobster mash was delicious, I think they may make it with plantains as it was slightly sweet but oh so yummy. It was a great dinner.

Food used to be good here.
But chicken was dry and hard in paella.
Sirloin steak was tough too.
Skirt steak was okay. French fries was only one we liked.

This has been the wort experience I ever had in a restaurant. I visit this restaurant last Sunday for my sister birthday brunch. When we came in a requested a table outside to enjoy the beautiful day, the hostess told us that even thou we had a reservation the wait was going to be 30 min. We decided to wait at the bar with a drink, after more than 30 min has passed I went to find out what happened and the hostess completely forgot about us. After a while we got sat and waited 20 min and no one came to our table to greet or offer water. We were not the only one in the predicament, the two tables near us were clearly sat first and also were waiting for a server. After seeing that we decided to leave.

Came here to celebrate my sons communion and it was not a pleasant experience. Waited 2 hours to get served which is a bit extensive. Had 2 private parties so our food was last to be served 2 hours later which is too long to be waiting for your food to be served especially when you have 4 kids under 11.

Seated one hour late, server forgot several things we ordered - one dish came out 45 mins after everything else - too bad this place doesn’t have act together- has such promise.

I went there for brunch past saturday, food was good but the service was poor, I ordered a piña colada and they forgot to bring it, there were no napkins in the table, i asked for the check and the guy was chating with the coworkers while i was wating for the check because i wanted to leave, i dodn't like this place at all, it was my first and last time there. Excellent view, excellent location but they forget about people/customer service and that for me should me the priority.
Food overprice and food took too long to come.

It's my second time eating there. You removed what I thought was a great appetizer, the tuna tartar and I haven't seen another type of app with that taste and value. I must say the churrasco was sub-par and way way overpriced. I have eaten at the Cuban, Rebecca's and Sabor and they have much better churrascos for around $32 but yours was $45, not sure why. I guess the view is priced into the food. Otherwise, great ambience and friendly service.

Food was served cold, and when brought to their attention it was reheated in microvawe. So much money for so little quality in food.

The food took extremely long to come and they said it’s because they had a bigger party that came in after our party to work on. Food was mediocre.

Food was very bland and way too overpriced. I’ve had better Cuban cuisine at half the price.
