Believe the poor reviews of this place. The dining room is very nice and the views are wonderful. But that's about it. It is extremely overpriced, the service is inattentive and it is impossible to hear anything over the loud music. Food was just meh. With such a great location, it could be fantastic with the proper management.

We visted Son Cubano this past weekend. My husband and I enjoy fine dining and trying new places, so to spite the poor reviews, we thought we would give it a shot. We traveled a long way for the "amazing views" of the city, But from where we were siting, which was next to a window, all we saw was... More

Simply put. Overpriced and mediocre food. Service was appalling. They refused to give us a pitcher of sangria when they gave pitchers to countless other tables. As we were finishing our meals, we were told they would kick us out if we didn't order dessert. The dessert wasn't that good. Avoid this place. There are many other nice places in... More

I had brunch there recently on Saturday, and this week, on Sunday. Nachos with guacamole is artistically presented and delicious. The Divorced Eggs were so good, I ordered them both times. My friend had the steak and eggs. She's in the food business and is so critical of restaurants, that it's sometimes difficult to enjoy my mea with her, said... More

This spot is great if you like more of a Lounge scene towards the night. The area is very beautiful waterfront to NYC. The food is good just a bit pricey. The music is good it just gets packed for dancing. Bote service available.

We loved the views, and the food was very good. The prices are a little high, but the food was quite good. It wasn't crowded at all on a Monday night, and our server was very helpful.

We made reservations 3 weeks in advance for a very special event. With our reservation we requested the BEST table in the restaurant, as the reviews all boast about what an amazing view of the New York City Skyline this restaurant has. When we got there, they told us that a large group called 2 nights before and bumped our... More

Son Cubano, or the "Sound of Cuba", successfully brought a style reminiscent of the elegance and opulence of "The Havana 50s".
