Just finished lunch at Padrino's with our Mission team coming back from Haiti. We had the combination tapas platter, the roasted pork, Cubano sandwich, Medio Noche sandwich, Sweet plantains, and more! It was fabulous! Herman was an exceptional waiter, so helpful and answered all of our questions! Thank You Herman!

I forgot that the last time I was there it was overly cold. Luckily my host remembered and brought an extra long sleeve shirt. Management note: save money on energy please. Otherwise the service was fast and friendly and the food was wonderful. Will return asap.

We lunched here recently and I can honestly say that I would be a VERY frequent diner if I lived in this area. Loved the food. I had the fried pork chunks, yucca, arroz moro and plantains. Delicious! The prices are reasonable and the restaurant is lovely. My husband enjoyed his Cubano sandwich. Wishing we didn't live 1000 miles away!

Was guided to this place by our concierge at The Diplomat. I could not have been happier. First time at a Cuban restaurant. Loved the Cubano appetizer (sample platter) and it was a great start. Had the strip steak and a carafe of the sangria. Highly recommend both! The Cuban sandwich was also very good.

Thank williamtsawyer
