Had a terrible time starting with the valet driver, I hand my keys to my vehicle driver speeds off and screeched the tires on the turn also waiter and staff had no idea what was happening . Was brought other tables dinners 2 times. My appetizers were brought to a different table then brought to mine was told dessert was on the house BUT was NOT ALLOWED TO CHOOSE MY OWN DESSERT. My fiancé and I ended up having conversations with other table next to us who ended up with these same problems . This is not a cheap place to go it’s definitely more for a special occasion because of the high pricing and you would expect the experience to be pleasant followed by the high prices . I’m really not one to waste my time and write a review but from this experience I will not return . This was a very upsetting occasion and big rule of thumb do not pay cash unless it’s an even amount they do not give exact change back !! It’s not that I will break my bank for 30 cent but it’s Principal

I've had better experiences with this restaurant prior to my last experience. The hostess was unaccommodating, dismissive and rude. I had a dinner reservation for a party of 2. (Date night) Our hostess sat us next to the bar in a loud non-intimate area with no scenic view against a wall. The table was uneven and wobbling. I politely asked our hostess if we can be moved to the main dinning area in which she quickly replied with out checking the availability that there were no tables available. I went back to the main entrance front desk and asked to be reseated in the main dinning room in which they were able to find an open table immediately with out a wait. Also the price of the Skirt steak is unreasonable and over priced. I've dined at numerous upscale restaurants that charged fair to reasonable prices with nicer ambiance that gave you better value of food and friendly service.

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.
