The views are stunning but the decor could be refreshed a bit. The jalapeno margarita came with no salt and too SUGARY.....The paella would have been great...if not for the slightly undercook shrimp.

We were warned by the waiter they were understaffed and were okay waiting but it was hard to track down our waiter for drink refills as we waited over an hour for our food. Appetizers were delicious but after our wait my food arrived ice cold. My sons chicken was hot but my husbands fries were cold and his burger, luke warm. My family had to eat so their food was warm enough while I waited about 15 minutes for a hot meal. I don’t usually send stuff back but cold rice is unpleasant. I was disappointed there was no effort to offer us a free drink or a dessert to rectify the situation. We ate here Christmas Day and the restaurant was beautifully decorated and we enjoyed our time but were disappointed by much. I did forget my credit card and they were very gracious in calling us right away so we didn’t get far.

Overpriced I guess you pay for the view. Service was slow. Waited for an hour for our appetizers and another hour for our main course. Drinks were good. View is beautiful but it’s way over priced.

We have been to Son Cubano previously and have been very happy with the food and service . However I made 2:15 reservations for Christmas Day this time. Big mistake ! The service was terrible. Either the staff had a lot of call outs or management didn’t put their full staff on until later. We waited over an hour and a half for our entree to come out and had to ask three times for a high chair . Not the type of service worth a $350. Meal.

I was there Saturday night with no reservation, i decided to go anyway and try my luck, waited for 45 min with no luck, the point is that a young lady at the front desk making reservations, just gave us a bad attitude , she should change her ways on how she talks to people, she was nasty for no reason,in the other hand there was guy there too he was very gentle and helpul and ask us to wait to see if any tables can open up later.

Very nice and stylish restaurant, nice atmosphere. We went there on a Friday when they have a band playing spanish music, making this place very special. You feel like is a big party.
The food, the drinks and the service was excellent.
I would recommend this restaurant to everybody.

Son Cubano provides a great view, ambiance and food. Honestly I forgot how good it is. Had dinner with a friend, we had the empanadas and ham croquets to start. Both were really good although I preferred the empanadas better. The crust was light and airy so you had all the flavor of the filling which was chicken, beef and veggie.
We both had the salmon miami which is salmon with lobster mash, cucumber relish and a mango chutney. Don’t think they need the mango chutney. The salmon was cooked perfectly. The lobster mash was delicious, I think they may make it with plantains as it was slightly sweet but oh so yummy. It was a great dinner.

Food used to be good here.
But chicken was dry and hard in paella.
Sirloin steak was tough too.
Skirt steak was okay. French fries was only one we liked.

This has been the wort experience I ever had in a restaurant. I visit this restaurant last Sunday for my sister birthday brunch. When we came in a requested a table outside to enjoy the beautiful day, the hostess told us that even thou we had a reservation the wait was going to be 30 min. We decided to wait at the bar with a drink, after more than 30 min has passed I went to find out what happened and the hostess completely forgot about us. After a while we got sat and waited 20 min and no one came to our table to greet or offer water. We were not the only one in the predicament, the two tables near us were clearly sat first and also were waiting for a server. After seeing that we decided to leave.

Came here to celebrate my sons communion and it was not a pleasant experience. Waited 2 hours to get served which is a bit extensive. Had 2 private parties so our food was last to be served 2 hours later which is too long to be waiting for your food to be served especially when you have 4 kids under 11.

Seated one hour late, server forgot several things we ordered - one dish came out 45 mins after everything else - too bad this place doesn’t have act together- has such promise.

I went there for brunch past saturday, food was good but the service was poor, I ordered a piña colada and they forgot to bring it, there were no napkins in the table, i asked for the check and the guy was chating with the coworkers while i was wating for the check because i wanted to leave, i dodn't like this place at all, it was my first and last time there. Excellent view, excellent location but they forget about people/customer service and that for me should me the priority.
Food overprice and food took too long to come.

It's my second time eating there. You removed what I thought was a great appetizer, the tuna tartar and I haven't seen another type of app with that taste and value. I must say the churrasco was sub-par and way way overpriced. I have eaten at the Cuban, Rebecca's and Sabor and they have much better churrascos for around $32 but yours was $45, not sure why. I guess the view is priced into the food. Otherwise, great ambience and friendly service.
