hands down best Cuban been to in long long time. absolutely gorgeous grounds inside and out. amazing view. Outdoors has heaters right above table. we did apps and drinks and food was incredible. Highly recommend red sangria ! They did add a mandatory tip before we paid which was fine bc we were leaving 20 percent anyway but just be aware so you don't tip double by accident.

This is a Cuban restaurant that does not serve any authentic Cuban dishes. It has become a restaurant with a Cuban name and non-traditional Cuban food. No Masitas, No Chuletas, No Piccadillo, it’s just American or Italian dishes disguised as Cuban food. Whoever the new chef is needs to be fired!!!! I might as well just go to Cuban Pete’s.

It was face saving when my reservation at RH Rooftop restaurant was cancelled.
First I called the restaurant if they can add 1 more guest to make my reservation for 3 people. Unfortunately, they don’t accommodate my request.
Thankfully, Son Cubano is my face saver. An alternative to my original reservation.

I am very grateful for the cordial and accommodating reception of Kimberly. She’s very courteous and professional. I’ve been going to this restaurant several times and each time is a great satisfaction.

My family and friends are very impressed with the hospitality. Great food and excellent customer service.
Today, we were served by Diane , Jose and Alonzo who accommodated my take home order .

It’s always a smile on their faces to serve us .
We had Empanadas with cheese and spinach.
Short ribs , Salmon Mojo and also the Lobster.

I can’t get over with the fabulous weather for this scrumptious experience again and again!!!!

Absolutely no doubt to be back soon!!!
I highly recommend this restaurant!!!
Thank you Son Cubano!!!!

They Didn't even sing happy birthday for my girlfriend, while they sang Happy Bday to 2 other guests who had a Bday. Not good service. For the amount of money you pay for everything, you would expect for them to go above and beyond, especially if they are adding gratuity at 18% automatically. You need to earn it.

The restaurant was beautiful, I made a reservation but still had to wait 30 minutes, The food was not worth the price at all I was completely shocked being that this is a Latin restaurant but it was missing flavor sadly and the drinks taste like juice

Service was good but this restaurant is just too overpriced for what you get. Too little options for entrees on the dinner menu, and all of them over 30+. Very little food for a 40 plate and just not worth it overall. Had to sit inside when the only reason we went there was to eat with a view. Overall not worth it, won’t be coming back.

Music was too loud. Appetizer was small for 3 small tacos to be almost 20$. Service sucked but they put a 20% tip on our check that we didn’t say to do because they didn’t deserve it at all. Madudos was so dry! Rice was salty. Entree was good.

Son Cubano was such a pleasurable experience. The food was superb, the customer service was exceptional and the staff was my favorite! Especially the cute little Dominican lady in the bathroom.

Kimberly helped us at the entrance to our table and was such a sweetheart. The manager came by to ask us how our meal was and we were delighted by his appearance. Really a beautiful establishment and the ambiance is amazing. Thank you all for being so sweet.

Try the “Ropa Nueva” and the “Cuatro leches” for dessert!, the chef’s take on these two classics. Amazing food, attentive service, great ambiance, beautiful views. This place never disappoints.

Overcooked, salty and cold food. You are truly just paying for the views and not the quality and authenticity of food. Not to mention the mandatory gratuity even though it was only a party of two people. Not worth the price for me to go back

Food was OKAY in taste and overpriced in my opinion but you’re paying for the view/ambiance as well, so that was expected. The waitress was great can’t say the same about the hostess who had an issue with us requesting an EMPTY outdoor table. She was extremely rude and unwilling to accommodate us. Not sure if hostesses receive extra tips/some sort of commission for seating guests indoor but this one sure did act like her life depended on not allowing us to dine outdoors. I’d give my experience a 2.5/5. I probably won’t be back because I just cannot tolerate the rudeness.

No complaints other than gratuity was included for a party of two and we were overcharged for drinks. Ambiance, food and service were all great otherwise.
