Once again Son Cubano didn’t disappoint. The service and food was off the charts flavorful and down good. Atmosphere was gorgeous as usually. The music was spot on. Son Cubano gave us the true feelings Havana Cuba in its hay day of the 50’s lots color and flair. The scale of the place it’s simple wonderful done. VIVA CUBANO GREAT JOB 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽

For a birthday lunch I brought my parents here. They were blown away by the views! Their food, staff and overall ambience is stellar. I am also pleased and more than satisfied every time. Everyone wore masks and was super respectful of social distancing. Highly recommend here and can’t wait to go back! Get the churrasco

I made reservations for outside dinning because I’m not comfortable sitting indoors yet because of the numbers rising of COVID 19 and they denied me outdoor dinning because they had just closed it. I was very upset asked to speak to the manager and her refused to sit us outdoors. Telling us it was cold when they have heaters out doors. I also told him that was my decision to make if it was too cold outdoors for me or not and he still didn’t allow us to sit outdoors. His name was Eli Ynga. He was not trying to make this experience as smooth as possible. Not understanding my concern. He didn’t care to make my guest feel comfortable at the restaurant.

Food is fantastic, location is wonderful. Service can improve. Our table did not get any attention till we called the manager. Food was delicious. Drink refills/ beer / alcohol were never offered and each re order was us trying to flag a passing server down.

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.

WOW...FIVE STARS! This was an amazing experience! From start to finish, big smiles when we walked in. A beautiful day, we ate outside where Richelle was so knowledgeable with the menu, caring to the point of getting the heater lit by our table to take the chill off. The table staff was attentive but never overbearing . We paced the meal and Richelle was so helpful from start to finish. The food was delicious, beautifully plated and served with a smile. The inside restaurant was beautiful and everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful. Appetizers were bountiful and tasty and our entrees were just amazing! Coffee and deserts? Of course and they were just a treat! Chef David Burke were have been pleased with the way the amazing way our experience went from beginning to end. Hats off to the staff and kitchen and again Richelle is a gem! Our colleagues were in from WA state, we drove in from PA for just a great business brunch. Thank you! We’ll certainly be back!

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.
