    The food and drinks were great but the communication in this restaurant wasn’t good at all. My party and I️ left VERY upset at the end of the night because the waitstaff took the cake I️ bought for my birthday, to another table. I even proceeded to tell one of the waiters that was singing that it was my cake but he just ignore what I️ said and did not try to stop it. It shouldn’t have happen at all. I️ have worked in the service industry for many years and this has never happen before anywhere else. You need to ask the table or at least confirm with the table before you bring anything out. It was a special ordered cake and now I️ can’t have any because the table next to us blew all over it. Very upsetting .

    The ambience and decor were perfect. We were greeted as soon as we walked in and waited for about one minute before we were late to our table. The view from our table was outstanding. We were seated by a window with a beautiful view of New York City across the water. We received near perfect Butler service from Johnny, who was very friendly and welcoming and informative. Our drinks, appetizers and entrées arrived in perfect timing. The cocktails were a bit pricey, but were strong enough to only require one each. We ordered the short ribs and pernil which were perfectly plated. And they were not small portions. Johnny was very attentive with the exception of remembering to fill my glass of water when it was near empty. There was a photographer who was going around taking photos and we did buy a glass framed 5x7 photo of us which cost us $20. There was also an extensive wine menu. I would absolutely visit this restaurant again and I would highly recommend anyone to patronize this restaurant for any occasion. PS: 18% gratuity automatically added.

    The staff is very courteous and the dining although crowded is nice. However, it is highly overpriced not worth it. I spent almost $100 on a steak, rice and beans entree and mojito. There wasn’t anything that wowed me. The price tag doesn’t match the quality unfortunately. However, it’s a good place for dancing and maybe cocktails only.

    We came here to celebrate 2 of our loved ones bdays- grandma and mom- son Cubano has been a staple of NJ for years now. This is probably my 4th time here over the last 5 years. Our experience was merely okay. It is a beautiful place and service was okay overall, but the food and drinks were very mediocre. We started with the sampler platter: pork was underwhelming under seasoned, 3 pieces of cheese and 3 crab croquettes, maybe 5 small pork pieces and 3 empanadas for $59- wow, not ok. The Rice was hard and tasteless, tostones were pre frozen tasting (confirmed by the waiter it’s how they make them too) drinks were meh for $17, desserts were good. When bringing our food to the table, the Waiter accidentally spilled a sauce that came with the salmon dish on our table while serving it- we understand things like this happen. But He had to come clean it up with antibacterial wipes (strong smell) because the sauce was orange and could stain the table. But no additional little service touch was given due to the inconvenience. Also, there was a moment where all of the servers were huddled potentially having a meeting but this is very tacky and distracting to those dining since they had it at the front of the dining hall. Inconsistent birthday experience- some people got sparklers while we just had traditional cake and singing - totally fine I guess. The filet mignon meal that I had is labeled as a filet with a side of squash purée and Brussels sprouts- for $49 I was very underwhelmed by my sides that were more of a decor for the steak (a little swirl of purée and 3 Brussels) the steak was good. Menu side items are not interchangeable. This spot used to be a lot more consistent and fabulous. It still has a lot of potential to do better, but it must start with the food and drinks. Best of luck.

    Wait time with reservations is an issue. 8:30 reservation only to be seated after 9:11 (since we kept asking). Made to wait in a small crowded waiting room where you could hear several patrons with same complaint. Always same excuse, few more minutes the party is paying their bill (or eating dessert). Why make reservations if you wont honor them? Seems some people come in and are seated asap (front staff faves?) while others wait. This happened once before in Summer and we only returned to use the gift card the manager offered then due to wait and being over charged for a bottle of wine. Once inside the staff is lovely. Maybe revamp your system or change your gatekeepers.

    Son Cubano - New JerseyResponded on January 17, 2023Good afternoon, Unfortunately this past Saturday we did have an issue with multiple large parties arriving late which caused us to get backed up. Individuals that come in and are seated immediately are individuals have who have been waiting for their reservation and were next in line to be seated. We are sorry that this affected your experience with us at Son Cubano, and we hope you consider dining with us in the near future.

    Food was good, a little over priced in my opinion but I guess the area it’s in they can charge whatever. Felt like server was not attentive enough for a $300 bill between 2 people 🤷🏽‍♂️. She wasn’t terrible but I believe you should get what you pay for and that was not up to standard for me.

    This is the second year coming for NYE. This year they decided to add the party to the bar. You could pay to stand by the bar. However, there were seated patrons having dinner in the area around the bar. It was a disaster!! People who stood at the bar had there beers on my table, coats on my seat until my other party came. I went to the front and asked for a seat change and a manager told me that’s what I paid for. Disgusting and I didn’t appreciate that response. The server could barely get through nor the bus boys. I didn’t appreciate how I was treated that evening. I won’t be back next year.

    I have dinned at Son Cubano previously, enjoyed the food and ambiance. Decided to give it a try for NYE along with a group of friends and it was a good decision. The party was great, the atmosphere gave a Great Gatsby feel, food was fresh, warm and served as people arrived, staff was also very pleasant and professional! Got a chance to meet David Burke too which was cool! Overall congratulations to the Son Cubano team (management and staff) excellent job!

    Only had one issue that came as a result of my shellfish allergy limiting my meal options. Everything I did try tasted authentic while still elevating the dishes. Our server made the experience exquisite with his knowledge of the menu items and made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our Christmas dinner. From the spinach w/ mushrooms to the skirt steak to the pistachio dessert, Son Cubano has easily cemented itself as one of my favorite places, period.

    Had dinner here on Christmas Eve. The atmosphere was great and very beautiful views. Our server was very attentive and nice. We ordered the Salmon and Ropa Vieja and they were both delicious. The only thing I didn’t like was the girls taking pictures and then trying to sell them to you at a high price. But overall a good experience. I would definitely go back and would also recommend.

    Just let me tell you Son Cubanos is with out a doubt our #1 place to dine out. This is a true Supper Club of days old. It’s a place where the entire staff makes you feel wonderful. The valet, hostess, bartenders and wait staff. Son Cubanos mark of greatness is shown by their Chef Brian Morales a true master at his craft. Brian is a gently giant who puts his whole heart and soul into his food. So for great night out ladies and gentleman put on that special outfit and let’s have a great meal and a fun night out. #1

The dessert my daughter made @ Sugar Ambrozia was also a hit, even the staff enjoyed the yummy flavors of the deconstructed banana cream pie. They brought it out with a candle and a birthday song. Thank you to all. it was a very nice time. Happy Mom :) Julia

    We celebrated my mom's birthday and she was just so thrilled and is still telling friends and family what a wonderful time she had. We moved her to NJ recently, so the view (thank you for the table by the window), the food, service, ambiance, and pretty holiday decorations were so extra special for her first birthday celebration in NJ. Thank you so much to Nathalia and the team who assisted our table - you truly made the brunch special and wonderful! PS... I've already recommended dining here to our dear friend, who also lives in the area.
