Our waiter Jose was attentive, friendly and professional. The food was some of the best Cuban I have ever had. Atmosphere and music level were perfect. Its no wonder I have had such a hard time getting a reservation!

The service was great. The waiter was always there to ask questions about the order and food. The food was very tasty. I had the salmon with mash potatoes. For dessert, we had a pudding cake with these carmelized peaches. My sister had ropa vieja which she loved. We picked this restaurant because it was to celebrate my dad’s birthday and the waterfront was so amazing to look at.

3 for brunch at noon. Place not crowded but yet it still took 45 minutes to get an omelette and 2 sandwiches. The food is great but the service is slow. Saw lots of wait staff meandering and standing around do it’s not a employee shortage issue.
I was there a few years ago for a large party event outside. It was painfully bad, delayed Service.
It’s a shame because the food and ambiance are wonderful

My family and I have been here several times and this restaurant never disappoints! The masitas and chicharron appetizer is delicious as is everything else on the menu! Some nights they have live music so it can be a bit loud. But the food and view are amazing.

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!
