Took my boyfriend here for his birthday. It was a good choice. Food was great and so was the sangria.

It was my second time at Son Cubanos and it was better than the first time. The first time was great and this was better! Got greeted at the front door by the smiling friendly hostess that sat us by the window with the most amazing New York skyline view.Great cocktails, great food and service !! Going back again this weekend with my family.

I'm a little disappointed with my visit to Son Cubanos as I have been there before with much better food and service. Appetizers were great. Main course was not. Requested window, I was put up against a pillar that made it very uncomfortable to eat or see the NY skyline. Although for two, the table was very small. When asked to be seated elsewhere, I was told nothing was available, although there remained 3 empty tables for the better part of our dining time. I felt we were being pushed out for a larger party to come in. Things have definitely changed at Son Cubanos. Respect the customer. We are who keep you open.

I had a business meeting at Son Cubano this past Saturday. Participants were coming from various locations and traffic was heavy. The staff kindly led us to the bar area to await their arrival. The Passionfruit Mojitos relaxed us until our table was ready.

The wait staff was pleasant, knowledgeable, and efficient, providing us with everything we asked for.

The meals were delicious (I recommend the branzino) and the ambience lively and exciting, but not noisy. The views of Manhattan at night are second to none.

I recommend Son Cubano for dining and special occasions (I think there were four or five birthday celebrations while I was there). Get there as soon as you can!

My overall experience here was great. Came in 20 minutes late and i was still accommodated promptly. Our waiter Cesar was just great. Always made sure we had drinks on our table and always made himself available, not like other places where the waiters just disappears.

At first I was contemplating to cancel my reservation due to some of the reviews. But I was glad i didn't. I went with friends to celebrate my birthday. Our waitress Claudia was so sweet and attentive. The food was pretty good I had the lobster another had the salmon and she loved it. It was fresh and well season. The cocktails was so good I had the Hennessey Guava. Go get your own experience and you might like it

At first when we were seated, we had no service for almost 30 minutes...to the point that we came close to just leaving. One of the restaurants notice us and when discovered that we had been ignored, she took on our table herself and truly did an outstanding job. She was very attentive, interactive, and saved our night.

Food was very good. Expensive, but the view makes up for it as well as the ambiance. I made a comment about birthday celebration via open table, and they did come out with a dessert before we ordered... They charged us for the one they brought, which we didn't eat... And the one we did order. A little unhappy about that. They removed it from the bill immediately though once we requested it.

I would certainly go back and try this again. My wife and I both ordered the seafood paella and we were disappointed in that we found it quite bland.

However, there are so many other menu choices we would like to give it another try. Scenically outstanding location.

Great atmosphere and good service. The food was well presented but over cooked and warm at best. Definetly loud music so be prepared to dance by the bar. Conversation will be a challenge at the dinner table.

The ambient and service was top notch, we had an amazing view of Manhattan. My only disappointment was the food, I order the Red snapper ceviche and was overcook and it seem not freshly made. The ajillo sauce for the sea bass was missing flavor and definitely salt. I will think about twice before coming back.

There was a fundraiser going on while we were dancing, so they stopped the music the DJ was playing and they allowed someone raffling tickets by the bar on the microphone for nearly 40 minutes which was very annoying and we missed out on our dance time. Totally ruined the night. We were outside waiting for valet and could still hear the guy calling out raffle numbers. These types of events should take place in the middle of the week and end by 9 pm, not on a Friday where people go out for anniversaries and dates etc. Especially after paying a lot of money for dinner and drinks.

I brought my wife here for our anniversary this past Wednesday. Everything was subpar except for the amazing view of the NYC skyline.

Our waiter came over, didn't introduce himself, and spoke maybe 4 words in total during our visit. Didn't follow up to see how our steak was cooked, didn't refill our waters, etc.

The churrasco steak came out and was cold and cooked medium rare instead of medium well. We asked for ketchup twice for our yuca frites and never received it. $45 for a cold steak and cold fries - awesome! The sangria tasted like Welch's grape juice and had zero alcohol in it. We were offered dessert, but I was already turned off completely from my experience there.

I would not recommend to anyone.
