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.

I was disappointed because I make a request for my anniversary, and they told me because we was only 2 we can't get a window table, so please remove from the page the option that said if we have any request for the reservation.

Good afternoon, we also have written there that not every accommodation can be met as we are a high-volume restaurant with many patrons who ask for that window seat. We appreciate your feedback and hope you decide to come back soon.

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.

The place was overbooked. They called me 3 times to confirm reservation. We came on time by 9.30 pm but had to wait 40 min for table. No CDC guidelines followed. No masks, no social distancing. Overcrowded bar
Too expensive for food, poor quality. Won't go again:(

If it wasn’t for our awesome server, I would have been really disappointed with my experience at Son Cubano. Granted it was their Halloween party night and the place was packed, so it took 90 minutes for our reservation time to be honored. What annoyed me the most was that they were totally unapologetic about it and really didn’t care about making their customers wait so long. Positives were the food - steak and appetizers were good. And our server was awesome, super kind and sweet!

We apologize for your wait times on Saturday night. Unfortunately we were very backed up due to our Halloween party so it became difficult for us to seat all of our guests at the proper time. We hope you decide to come back and give us another try. Have a great day!

Paid for a reservations of 10 for a birthday. Did a pre fixe menu because of the amount of people. For dinner, The short ribs were missing its sides, the paella dishes some of this dishes were cold, salmon didn’t come with any sides but we waited so long we just wanted to eat. Paid for top shelf which amazing. Empanadas were hot and fresh. The steak skewers were rubbery in texture but good in taste. The cake pop were really good nice touch with the cotton candy. Music picked up around 9 and also had some entertainment burlesque style Ans toward the end Halloween looks. Overall we had a good time minus the missing issues with the sides.

Server was attentive and the food came out relatively quick. Our reservation was early at 5:00 PM so perhaps that’s why. My fiancé and I are vegetarian and they accommodated us with a vegetarian paella, which was not listed in the menu. The salmon and filet mignon was very good according to my guests. My mother, bless her soul, only eats well done steak. Somehow the chef made her a juicy well done filet mignon and she loved it. We are definitely going back!
