Unbelievable location, great vibe and amazing service! The food was excellent and all appetizers came out rather quickly. We got the ceviche and shrimp and lobster tacos. The ceviche was so fresh. The tacos could be addicting! Our dinners were excellent as well!! If I could list one negative it would be the wait… it was an hour and a half for us to be seated even though we had a reservation. Thank god we ate a small snack before we went! They suggested we wait at the bar which was fine. The bartenders were energetic and the music was good. Still tho… the wait was A LOT

Nice experience at Son Cubano. Beautiful views and ambiance, and that’s what you pay for. Food was ok, I’ve definitely had better. We order a variety of appetizers which were good, but not impressed. I expected better for the crab cakes as well. We ordered skirt steaks, very tasty, Parrillada was good but keep in mind it only feeds 2 people maybe 3. Comes with truffle fries which were good,but must order other sides if sharing with 3 people. The desserts were AWFUL!!! 4 leches cake was decent. But the flan and hazelnut cake were awful. How do you mess up a flan in a Spanish restaurant is beyond me. The cake was stale. Matthew the waiter was great and so was the other wait staff. We did feel rushed as some waiters wanted to take meals away without finishing our plate. Again, you pay for the view and ambiance… it was beautiful. I would return but maybe skip some appetizers and definitely skip the desserts.

I haven’t been to Son Cuban in the last year. I did come back after the pandemic and was disappointed but I took the pandemic into consideration. I don’t know if they sold the place or went into new management however I gave it a chance. I went there last night and again the food came out and it was barely warm, the rice was hard on the top as if it was sitting out. The churassco was terrible, it didn’t have any seasoning and chewy not even the chimi helped! The truffled fries were very tasty expect that it was the end of the fry bag because we received small pieces. We didn’t have dessert because when we decided to take the left overs they brought cardboard boxes. I couldn’t believe it! Very shabby for an mid scale restaraunt. Do not get the churrasco, not worth $50, unfortunately we ordered 2🤦🏻‍♀️. I won’t recommend this place until they start cooking better. All this place has is Ambiance!

Our waitress was OK she wasn’t attentive to us we had to get up from our seats to look for her which you should never do. Food was really good can’t complain about that one of the best don Julio with lemonade we’ve had. the restaurant itself is beautiful especially the view But I honestly feel like employees should be more aware of their customers at the end of the day it’s not a cheap restaurant we’re spending money so please show and give the customers the experience we all deserve.

The place itself is gorgeous, very beautiful inside, with extraordinary view of the NYC skyline across the Hudson river. The service was good, prompt. The food was a bit overpriced, but as classy as the place was, it more then made up for it. Valet parking was 25 and the car was right outside when I stepped out. The food was good, except the dessert, the quatro leches cake was a bit dry. But over all, it was a great place and I will definitely go back.

I went for my birthday, the place was nice. The food did take awhile and I went late so it wasn’t busy. Also the server gave me a dessert I didn’t ask for, it was ok but I shouldn’t be charged for something complementary. I’ve dined at Hells Kitchen for my birthday last year in Vegas & i wasn’t charged for my dessert. All and all the service was a strong 4

The restaurant itself was good, service could’ve been a little more attentive. Food was excellent. My only problem was the valet, the attendant took forever to come to my car, was not attentive at all, and wanted me to reverse and park my own car behind someone else’s car and then said “never mind, ill do it” so I asked, what am I paying $25 for if I’m going to have to park my own car? So I just took my keys back and parked on the street. This experience left a bad taste prior to even entering the restaurant. But the bathroom attendant and hostess were both lovely and super nice and attentive.

Beautiful place but extremely over priced and the service was pretty bad. The waitress was very rude. They manager must be aware of the bad quality of staff sine they force you to pay an 18% tip (to any size table) regardless of the service you received. What a thief. Not worth your money.
