The appetizers and the drinks are good. The entrees need better work on it and not worth the price. They do have a nice atmosphere and music.

Cocktails are ok staff is great very nice amience to spend a evening with a couple of drinks and it is right by the... More

I recently attended a birthday dinner at this restaurant and I must say while I enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant, I was disappointed in some respects . Firstly, we were seated in the middle of the restaurant by the entrance and it was extremely cold. I mentioned to staff that this was an issue and they kept on saying... More

I've been to this restaurant several times, the latest last November 2016. The menu is extensive - primarily Spanish cuisine, some Caribbean influence. The food is generally good to very good. It's not great, which is a disappointment given the wide variety of choices. But the presentation on the plates is spectacular, just like you see in fine dining magazines.... More

Solid LATIN Fare with great bar, ambience and friendly service. Don't let the reasonable prices fool you about the large portion size enough often to share. Check out your neighbor's dishes before you order. Salads with meat or chicken or fish a meal in itself. Valet parking or find spot yourself in street. They aim to please.

Nice area. Has vallé parking. Street parking might be difficult to find. There is a big lot a couple of blocks away near at Acme Supermarket. Make reservations before going. Went there on a Saturday and they had live music. Food is good. Sangria on the sweet side but good. The view of NY from the restaurant is beautiful. Service... More

Visited with a friend on Friday night and it was awesome! everything from Valet to coat check to our server and live band. Being it was a Friday night the place was packed but not cramped dinner space and definitely not rushed by servers to pay either. Appetizer's you must try (1) Sweat plantain rolls stuffed with beef (size of... More

this place is beautiful, but overpriced for what you get. However, they know they can get away with the prices because people like the view of NYC, and after dinner it turns into a night club scene. Very loud. This place is run more like supper club than a regular restaurant. You pay from the valet to a cutting fee... More

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

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