Friends dinner late afternoon. The atmosphere and views from the riverfront dining room were just brilliant, the background cuban music set nice tone. But the best 2 parts of visit were the service (Thanks Angie) and the food. We ordered 3 apps for the table to share, the oysters were fresh and good taste, the Frito Mixto was delicious and my friend's could not be more enthused by the Grilled Octopus. I had the grilled bone in pork chop which was favorable, juicy and large had to take a portion home. It is a mite expensive but well worth the cost, This was a friend's birthday and would gladly return for either another celebration or a romantic date.

Really nice place with great food. The only thing I did not like was that I felt rushed. The waiters passed several times asking if me and my friends were done. They also bought the check without us asking for it. My friend told the waiter she wanted more drinks reason why we had not asked for the check. Overall great but they need better customer service.

Great views of NYC. They charge $2.54 for paying the bill with creit card.
If they ask you what type of glass you want your drink in- make sure its
not a double.

Showed up a few minutes early for 7:45 pm dinner reservation. We were made to wait 25 minutes, while other guests walked in AFTER us but were taken to their tables immediately.
This is not the first time we’ve been made to wait, despite having made reservations. In fact, they asked for $15 per person deposit to hold the reservation. Very aloof and disinterested in making the customer welcome.

I was there with my boyfriend for date night. Beside the being tables are too close to each other everything was okay. Also i think hostess just doesn’t know how to figure it out the tables she put us right middle of the 2 big family table and tables are too close to each other and it was kinda bothering.

Went there for Thanksgiving lunch. The food and ambience were good as always. However, our main entree came in super late. An hour after we gave our orders. I wonder why but nobody gave reasons why. They just keep on saying it will come out soon. Table beside ours, their order came just after their appetizers, which makes us more upset.

Birthday celebration. Good points - terrific quality food/recipes with uncommonly good flavor and solid plating. Inventive drink ideas well presented. Wonderful ambiance and spectacular views. Energetic restrooms. Less good points - somewhat overwhelmed service staff resulting in slower and less attentive service (clear that our server wanted to do better, but that his workload and assignments did not permit it). Cake cutting/slicing fee of $4.00/slice, a practice I find in full conflict with the brand Davis Burke is trying to project (it would be a different argument if the restaurant itself provided birthday cakes from the pastry chef and we were choosing to bring our own - they do not and we had to bring our own). And an overall charging system that makes it nearly impossible to escape with less than $100/person tab. We will return, but for brunch. A little attention to these remaining issues by Burke will drive the overall experience to a high level.

The ambiance was great! For a Cuban themed restaurant, it did not offer Cuban dishes. The service was great from the greeting to leaving the place. The mojitos were mostly ice.

I made a reservation, I wasn’t seated until 30 minutes after my reservation time. My drink was great, my seating and the view also great. The food however didn’t match the price on the menu. It was something I could have made at home and the food took a while to come. After being seated 30 minutes after the reservation time, the food took another 30-40 minutes to come out. The maduros were better than my actual meal. You’re paying for the experience, because the food is subpar.

Once again Son Cubanos out did themselves it was fantastic. The night started out slow but finished with a jam packed bar area. All the beautiful people where there in midst of a truly good time. Eating and drinking. Chef Brian Morales hats off to you and your fantastic staff. Timely and well prepared entrees on point. The coffee and dessert where A true treat. I still highly recommend Son Cubanos Date Night Out, Girls Night Out or just for a really enjoyable time. Jersey’s # 1 Supper Club Beckons back to the good old days of the 50s and 60s we’re people dressed up and showed out.
