Son Cubano is a very nice restaurant located at the waterfront in Weehawken with a magnificent view of the Manhattan skyline. The ambience of the restaurant is beautiful. Food is good but not particular special. Service was attentive but plates were simply dropped at the table. A tip of 18% is mandatorily added to the bill and on top of it a surcharge for paying with a credit card. I do understand the pain of credit card fees for businesses but given the fact that Son Cubano is having the flair of an upscale restaurant the credit card surcharge just feels cheap. In summary a great ambience &view but otherwise a rather mediocre experience. Hence, only 3 stars.

Had reservations they attended us immediately and they were going to sit us outside but I asked if we could sit inside and they accommodated us. Food was on point very tasty great portions. Drinks were the best part. Good atmosphere and great service. They even gave us champagne for my girlfriends and I anniversary.

The restaurant was pricier than I expected, but the next day I realized we were charged for items that weren’t served. For example, I ordered a double-espresso. I was served a single but billed for a double. There were also alcohol items on the bill beyond what we received.

I LOVED this place. Considering it as a wedding venue after last night. The service was amazing & the food was delicious! The view overlooking the water & all the lighting made the night memorable.
I would recommend this place for a intimate engagement, birthday party or wedding!

I went here with my husband on a whim Bc we were looking for great dinning, we are From NY and let me just say it was amazingggg I loved everything I had the salmon with rice he had the skirt steak and we both rated our food a 10, dessert was also amazing we dined outside the water and nyc across it was such a nice view & vibe one thing I love was the constant checking from staff to make sure everything was okay that’s a plus you aren’t left waiting for anything water was refilled constantly and again staff was so nice ! if you’d like to impress a date this is the way, only thing I would suggest is make a reservation. Now when we walked inside to use the bathroom it was beautiful I am planning my pre wedding dinner or my bday there Bc it is beautiful chandeliers and just so aesthetic !

We had to wait about 2 hours for our food to come out. The waiter wouldn’t stop by to see if we needed anything, took 40 minutes to bring us our drinks. The food was terrible and super over priced. We paid for the view and that’s it. Would not recommend this place to anyone.

From the moment we walked in, everything was off. The two ladies at the door saw is coming yet they were busy talking to each other and about other customers around. It was more of a show until one of them decided to pay attention. I told her about our reservation and that we prefer to be seated outside, and she left to arrange a table for us. A second later, her colleague who was right next to her and had heard the previous conversation, welcomed us and asked us where we wanted to be seated and if it was our first time. In Spanish, they arranged one of them to take us to the table, the one who asked us where we want to be seated, and asked us again if it was our first time. Empty talk. The food ordering was smooth, the waitress was efficient and the food was delicious. A guy with a suit who appeared to be the restaurant manager, passed by every table to chat about their experience and food and dodged us on several occasions even after I’d made an eye contact. I wanted to tell him about the two ladies who greeted us. He even spent a good 10 minutes at the table behind us talking loudly about getting birthday parties. In short, staff there run the place like it’s their own business and customers are their distant cousins who came from Havana to visit. They lacked professionalism, diligence, attention to details, hospitality, elegance and allowed themselves a hefty tip on the check with no choice from our side. I can have good Cuban food at multiple locations but it’s the experience that will make me revisit a certain restaurant. I will not be coming to that one again.

Upon arrival, hostess was warm and instructed us to grab a drink at the bar as our group was 10 minutes earlier than our reso. Cocktails were delicious, but took forever to close out when it was time to be seated and claimed they couldn’t take our drinks to the table because of Covid. Normally I wouldn’t mind, but everyone was in heels with jackets and purses in tow and the dining area was pretty tightly packed, so that was just poor service in my opinion.


Tables were way too close together, not just because of Covid-19 but so much so we could barely hear the conversation at our own table.

Appetizers were amazing, but pork entree was overdone and difficult to cut through. Plating presentation was done well.

Very elegant restaurant. Fantastic view of NYC skyscrapers!
Live music was great. Alcohol beverages made very well. Appetizers delicious, My Pork Shank entree was a little too rich in tomato sauce, A wine pork gravy would’ve been a better fit. Great tasting desserts, but small portion, a little bigger would’ve been nice.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this restaurant, authentic Latin food!! …very friendly staff and the manager was very accommodating.
Also, valet parking was a breeze and the parking attendants were very respectful.
Definitely a thumbs up!!!

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.
