The food was not good. And the service was bad. This place is not good
The ambience, the staff, and the food was amazing. I am looking forward to coming back for brunch.
Great music great food and perfect view
Excellent service, food super delicious, awesome view.
Horrible experience. All reviews about bad service and experiences are accurate. Son Cubano is an over price restaurant with horrible service and unbalanced tables. Keep your apologies to yourselves and higher a whole new management team
Had a great experience at Son Cubano. Nick was super accommodating & he was able to get us a table outdoors. Food was excellent! Highly recommend the churros for dessert!!
We made a reservation for 6:45 pm on a Saturday through open table and requested a table outside for a great view of the city on our anniversary. Additionally, I called the morning of and confirmed the reservation and outdoor table request. When we got to the restaurant at 6:40, we were told to get a drink at the bar and someone would let us know when our table was ready. We got a drink and, 45 minutes later, no one had come to get us so my boyfriend asked the host how much longer and she said it would be another 90 MINUTES!! for an outside table. My boyfriend got annoyed and asked to talk to a manager, who said he could seat us right away, but then dropped us into a two-top right smack in the middle of the dining room. The only “city view” was the twinkling of a few lights through a window on the other side of the room. Anyway, we waited at the table for another 20 or so minutes before a server realized no one had as much as greeted us, let alone taken our order. It was 8:00 by the time we ordered. We ordered the tuna tartar tacos for an appetizer. When I asked what the catch of the day was, the server said he “thought” it was salmon. I took a chance and ordered it anyway, with the expectation that it might not be salmon that comes out of the kitchen. My boyfriend ordered the short rib entree. We were both underwhelmed. The tuna tacos were greasy and boring. There were three, so not good for sharing. The short ribs were dry and “meaty” tasting…something hard to pull off when making short ribs. The salmon was way over-cooked. Both entrees filled up about a quarter of the plate. The one thing I was really excited about though…the thing that was going to save the day…was the coconut flan. The night was sealed when, after ordering, the server returned to the table about 5 minutes later to let us know they were out. Sigh. Not what we had envisioned when we made our reservation. Not even live music, as promised on their website. We won’t be returning.
Excellent location with breathtaking views of NYC.
The food is top notch! The wait staff are gems!
The location is excellent with a beautiful view of Manhattan Skyline. The food was good but a little expensive. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was nice.
I would recommend this place to anyone.
Food took quite
We appreciate the rating!
First time there - five of us went on a Wednesday night for a birthday dinner. The outside seating was closed, but the hostess was kind enough to sit us by the window after we kindly asked a few times. The restaurant is really nice, the views are beautiful, our waiter was nice, the drinks were good and the food was ok (for the price). Like others have written, the price is very high for the quality of food you get on your plate. I was very hesitant about going after the reviews I've read, but I'm glad we decided to give it a shot. I don't regret going - we had a nice time - but unless their prices go down, I won't be returning.
I recommend it for the experience.
We are happy you decided to give Son Cubano a try! We would love to have you back in the near future. We appreciate the lengthy feedback.
Overall good and recommend - was a bit ticked off when the host initially refused to seat us indoor, but was quickly resolved. the food is great!
We apologize for the small mishap. We hope you decide to visit us again soon.
Not sure if they are under new management, but was very surprised of they way the running the restaurant…not sure if I will back…on the other hand, food still good
I don’t think they should automatically add 18% tip for a table of less that 5 ppl, we were three and 18% automatically added, it’s a turn off
We apologize for the inconvenience, Sonia.
Not good service at all.
We're sorry to hear about this. What exactly went wrong with your reservation?
We made a reservation for 8pm and did not get seated until 9:15. So I am not sure what the point of a reservation is.
The food and service was good. Wait time was too long. Even thought we had reservations, we still waited for an hour .
We're sorry to hear about your wait time. We are very busy on the weekends and tend to have wait times. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Had to wait 45 minutes for a table despite having a reservation.
The food and drinks were exceptionally good. It is a bit pricey but well worth the money. Our waiter Dylan was very polite and charming. The ambiance was very nice and elegant without being too formal.
Good solid establishment. A bit noisy inside but tables outside on the Hudson are perhaps the best along the River. Food is delicious but service can be slow which is great if outside enjoying the view, but can get hard to carry in a conversation inside when it’s a full house.
It was FANTASTIC
We are happy to hear you enjoyed your experience!
I asked Server to ring in apps as they come out, he said he would not, he needs the full order, never heard a waiter ever doing that. He forgot to ring in my fiancé's meal. All 3 people finished eating our meals, and her entree was still not out. Manager came to apologize over 30 minutes later, did not take it off tab, didn't offer any dessert for the poor service, and when I told the waiter that her entree was still on the tab, he snapped with a "well she ate it!" SMH...will never come back after the 6 times we have gone. For the higher price points, and what you would think would be a place to have high service, this place is horrible and needs new management and trained service.
The food was not great
Managers, servers, food and drinks were awesome!! Will definitely go back. Our server was Alexandra and se was great. She knew the menu and her recommendations were on point! Great night overall
Happy to hear you enjoyed your time with us @ Son Cubano Janice! We will let Alexandra know that you enjoyed her hospitality.
Rare to find cuban restaurant like son cubano, high end and luxurious atmosphere with kind an polite service, but the food could have been better, could be more diverse and tasteful .
Great atmosphere perfect for a date night and EXCELLENT for a girls' night out. The food was delicious. The drinks were awesome. Richelle, our server, was extremely attentive as well as accomodating. The manager was kind and careful with his words... we had overstayed the timeframe for seating ( bc we were having a great time) and he delicately let us know it was time to wrap it up..lol.. I appreciated his approach and delivery..it was both respectful and effective ;)
We very much appreciate your extensive and positive review of Son Cubano! We hope you decide to dine with us again in the near future.
great place for date night!
We would have to agree! Thanks for the feedback, Lashona!
We had to wait briefly although we had a reservation. Service was adequate. Food was okay and the wine was okay.
We appreciate the feedback. We hope you decide to plan another trip to Son Cubano!
The food was not as I expected. The service was kinda poor.
We're sorry to hear about this experience, Elkin. We hope you decide to give us another try in the near future.
Muy buen ambiente la comida deliciosa me encanto
Nos allegra saber que la pasaste bien!
The bartender was great when we got there waiting for our table. However, once we sat down to our table, we waited for awhile a server to acknowledge us. We had to ask one worker who apparently was a server from the other side who happens to pass by our table. She went on to check who are waiter was and the waiter came finally. Other then this, food is top notch and the special drinks, very good. El conejito malo was my favorite! Pina colada was good too. Defiantly will come back again. Really appreciated and enjoyed that atmosphere. People living it up and enjoying a good time. Great view of NYC of course!
We're sorry about the service issue towards the beginning of your dinner service, but we are happy to know you enjoyed your overall experience @ Son Cubano. We look forward to your next visit!
Food was very mediocre and overpriced. I will never return.
We're sorry to hear you feel this way, Debbie. We hope you decide to give us another shot in the future.
Great food and service by Luis
We will make sure were let Luis know of your kind words! Have a great day!
The ambiance was beautiful the food was good. They charged 2% more when you pay with credit card which they should tell you when you book the reservation not at time of payment . Overall it was a good experience.
We are happy to hear you enjoyed your time @ Son Cubano!
Very nice place
Thanks for everything
We appreciate the kind words, Walter! You are absolutely welcome. Please stop by again soon!
Very nice and elegant place. Outstanding food and service.
A busy night- Table wasn't ready for our time slot, so we waited outside as were requested for 10 minutes or so before we realized we could've waited at the bar inside as other customers did. I wish the hostess had told us that at the beginning. We then confirmed with the hostess that we would be at the bar until our table was ready and then she'd come notify us. Overall, we waited a little over 30 min to be seated for dinner, but we understand that it was a busy night with many parties but with limited seatings. (Only some tables were used inside, most were sectioned off, so most people were seated outside - this was never mentioned til we got seated).
Food and service were excellent. A very unique style of cuisine in that neighborhood. Bar creations were super creative as well.
Noise level -- because we were seated outside, surrounded by so many who were celebrating birthdays (...we must've seen at least a dozen), the place was pretty noisy.
Overall -- we'd love to come back and try other dishes but on a quiet night.
We appreciate your detailed review! We always take our customers thoughts and feedback into consideration when trying to better the Son Cubano Experience. We hope you decide to visit us again in the near future. Have a great day!
