    My watermelon and arugula salad was not as described and disappointing. The tomatoes were not heirloom and the watermelon was literally an afterthought. It was underwhelming for $19. Guacamole and churros were great. View and seating were superb.

    Food and drinks were really good. Our service seemed rushed while we were eating asking if we were done yet and trying to take plates from us. Then the waitress took a long time after we were done eating to ask us if we needed anything else.

    Had reservations on a Saturday at 6:30. Drinks were ok but way overpriced.. $17-$20? In small glasses. I ordered the roasted chicken, it was tender, my boyfriend ordered salmon. We also ordered yuca, rice, and plantanes as sides. We shared dessert which was the hazelnut chocolate cake which was amazing. Just enough for 2 people. The coffee was hot and tasted great.

    We went there during the day and were seating at the patio outside. The view is amazing! Usually we come to Son Cubano in the evening, but I liked it during the day as well. The service was good and quick , despite them being pretty busy. Overall we had a great time and will come back again.

    By far the best restaurant I’ve been too in years!!! Food, drinks, service & view was amazing! I went during brunch, took my husband & children. Upon looking at the menu no one new what they wanted to eat and chose not to eat anything. Being that I drove 45 mins from NY to get there I was not ok with that so I ordered for everyone. I ordered the short rib, ordered my children the French toast & fried chicken, & ordered my husband the skirt steak. When I tell you everything was AMAZING, perfectly seasoned & cooked!!! My family was not only happy that I ordered for them but wanted moreeeee!!! Needless to say everyone can’t wait to return, worth every penny!!!

    Lets start with the fantastic view of NYC. Spectacular pictures. Hostess was great. Very friendly. Answered all questions we had. Beautiful interior, energetic atmosphere with Dj and the bathroom is a party in it self beside being immaculately clean the attendant is fabulous. Our waiter Johnny was fantastic! With a party of 9 and multiple requests he was on his game. Dj was great. Food was great everyone had something different and there were no complaints. Would definitely return again, sooner than later.

    Went for my husbands bday . Felt very well taken care of. Everyone was super professional and we were really impressed with how the server Luis was taking care of us. I wish they had a more variety of food on their menu (like lechon) but the food was large servings and wonderfully prepared. Look forward to being back. We sat outside enjoying the weather and the view of the water.

    A pleasant place to eat until we were seated next to a table with a small dog sitting in the owners lap. My dinner partner saw the dog owner feeding the dog from the table. Not very nice! Although the food was tasty it was a little too salty both the pear salad and the branzino. I may try a second time, hoping there are no dogs at the table and the food is less salty.

    The food was very good, as good as any Cuban I’ve had, although it is a more upscale treatment of the cuisine than we’ve had many times in Miami. Of course the point of this place is the view. Stunning view of New York. Pricey, but it is an experience. For us it was worth it.

    My fiance and myself came here to eat dinner for the very first time on Saturday. When we got here the wait wasn't long at all. Within 10 minutes we were seated with our reservation for 6:00pm.. the crowd was Kool nothing out of the ordinary. The food was delicious but the portions were as small as they can come.. so if you're thinking of a doggy bag this definitely ain't the place for it! Overall the place was good enough for us to want to come back!!

    18% gratuity automatically added to check so no real incentive for servers to deliver quality service. Very obvious the mangers pick and choose what tables to come up to and engage with, shouldn't be obvious but it is. Not sure if short staff or what the issue is but service was slow and left a lot to be desired. The food was hot when received and adequate. Overall decent, not great
