The appetizers (guac, empanadas, lobster taquitos & croquettes) and dessert (quarto leches) were the highlights of the evening. the main entrees (filet mignon, pork shank & churrasco) were barely enjoyable. Pork lacked flavor, the steaks were all cooked way too much and left us hungry.

I live right up the street from this place. It's special ,and when I have visitors come from NYC I take them here. Great view and good food. A little over priced for the amounts, and cocktails rather pricey but good.

The food came out cold for half of the party. My skirt steak skewers were cold and my shrimp appetizer was over cooked. Food quality was just poor. Service wasn’t great either. I’m not sure if they were understaffed, which is definitely a possibility, but service could be better. The waitress saw our drinks empty and didn’t ask us if we wanted more drinks. Ambiance was great, but I think the music could have been a tad bit lower so you can hear each other speak at the table. My drinks were great though!

The manger Nick is completely unprofessional !! after one hour of being there (appetizers, dinner , dessert and drinks) he came over to our table and told us it’s “nightly night time” and we need to leave because he needs the table! food is sub-par, portions are Very small and prices are sky high ! the only thing good about Son Cubano is the view ... if you go beware of the manager ... creepy and unprofessional!

For the amount of money we spent I expected a lot more. Drinks were good. I will give them that however I found the food very lack luster. I actually didn’t eat my steak because it didn’t taste good.
They charge you a credit card fee on your bill… I could see them doing that if they weren’t packed and needed to make up some money. They were packed however and didn’t make us aware until we received the bill that they include that charge… sneaky!
I wouldn’t go back there again.
