Son Cubano typically has good food and a great ambiance. The only negative comment is that they still have bathroom attendants who are annoying and can be very tacky for a place like this.

Fabulous dinner as I wouldn't expect less from a David Burke restaurant. Portions were big, entrees and appetizers very inventive. They even had a live singer and band which brought a certain atmosphere to place while u were eating. Highly recommended!!

I really wanted to love this restaurant because of the spectacular location. However, the truth is that it's way too expensive for just being okay. 2 people: we split an app and entree and had a glass of prosecco each then dessert. They automatically charge gratuity and the total was $116. I would happily pay that if the meal was outstanding but eh not for this again. Too bad.

Everything except for what I ordered was excellent. My dish was the Eggs "Havana Style" and it left a lot to be desired. I don't think it should be considered an Entrée at all. Aside from that my family enjoyed their meals.

My wife and I had a great time from before we walked in with the awe-inspiring views of NYC. When we entered the energy was palpable with nattily dressed patrons around us. After a Billionaire cocktail at the bar we were seated in the restaurant. Our server Dylan balanced the attentiveness and space for our conversation perfectly. To start we had the empanadas mixta - excellent! My wife enjoyed the pork shank and I loved the steak. The sweet potato wedges were almost like a dessert. The Flan was a perfect end to an outstanding first night back out enjoying life and living!

There were large group and we were sat near entrance which was less than optimal table for birthday dinner.
Indicted it was birthday dinner in advance but other larger party took the priority, I guess. It’s very busy restaurant and service is always sub par.

Everything was great at first, beautiful table overlooking the city, not crowded, and good atmosphere all around. Then our waiter had to be reminded of things we asked for several times from lemons, to drinks, to a cup of milk for my son. And all that was forgivable, until I asked for the only gluten free dessert they have. (I have a Severe allergy) It was delivered by someone other than our waiter so I asked “is this cookie in the middle of the sorbets gluten free?” And he affirmed it was GF. I grabbed it and was about the eat it when our regular waiter came over to see how everything was. I then asked him also if this cracker/cookie was GF. He seemed perplexed and then said “no no I don’t believe so”. He then went to grab the bowl and said he would bring another. I said “just leave it as I already touched the cookie and you are just going to throw it away”.

He leaves and then returns to say “so you want to order 2 sorbet desserts?” Smh at this point I realized he wanted to charge us for their mistake. Now had I not just ordered over $200 of actual food I could him being nit picky about dessert, but given it was their mistake and had I taken a bite, I would have been sick or ended up in the hospital for a week or so, maybe he could have been a bit less absurd over a $10 bowl of sorbet. It just left such a bad taste in my mouth. Probably the last time I go there for a meal unfortunately.

Good afternoon, We are terribly sorry to hear about this experience you had. We would like you to know that we take our food allergies extremely serious @ Son Cubano, and the way your server handled this was unacceptable. We will look into further to ensure it does not happen again. We hope you have a great day!

Making reservation it asked for special requests. I said it was a special occasion and wanted a table for 2 with a beautiful view. Got to restaurant to check in and the host tried to sit us near street with all kinds of noise. We asked to sit elsewhere. So that part didn't work out. The server was nice but not attentive. Ordered the filet mignon which came with maybe 2 tiny halfed grape size potatoes. My boyfriend ordered Salmon with some greens on plate. We were served our dinners with no fork & knives. We had to wait a few minutes to receive them while the food just sat in front of us. Our server disappeared several times during our dinner. Our water glasses were ever refilled after the first time. The drinks were strong as they should be for the price.... way over-priced at $15 a drink. We ordered the cheesecake tree for dessert with coffees. The coffees came first and we waited awhile for the dessert. Never was asked for a coffee refill. It tastes very good but the presentation was horrible. Cheesecake pops on a metal stand with blue cotton candy stuck at the top. It was not appealing. I would say the inside decor was very well done. They need to work on service, food presentation... maybe offering a vegetable/potato or salad with meals. I found the prices didn't match the service or food.
