    This Cuban restaurant boasts one of the best views of Manhattan. Son Cubano gives Cuban food the fine dining touch with dishes like the fried plantain baskets filled with smoky braised oxtail. Read more

    Hands down one of the best Cuban spots! Great service, great music, and delicious food. Had the crab croquettes, shrimp tacos, huevos rancheros and lobster mash and everything was amazing!

    This is one of the hottest supper clubs I've been to in a very long time. It's a little pricey and gratuity is included, but overall, the service is amazing and the music is diversified.

    A Bergenline meets South Beach crowd swamps this swanky spot occupying prime river real estate. Service is a little spotty, but the pernil was killer.

    Son Cubano serves excellent food. Lunch on a sunny weekend day is a great way to enjoy a great meal with a spectacular view of Manhattan.

    Service: very slow, food: regular, very expensive for what it is, great view of manhattan. Only dish worth recommending the croquetas de chiva (goat cheese croquettes)

    We ordered empanadas mixtas to start, prime skirt steak, and my husband ordered paella. The steak came with arrow moro, which was cold, and the paella was nothing special.

    overpriced, really small portioned. The ceviche was bland, lobster/shrimp tacos were tiny. Beef rib was small portioned. The mushrooms/spinach side, plantain was good. Nice dressy vibe. Good music.

    Food is ok but service is lacking big time. Even got overcharged and the Manager was no help. The only nice part is the view when sitting outside.

    Overpriced. Decent view but nothing to lose your mind about. Service was fine but they didn't reserve us a table in the back by the windows as we had asked for in our reservation days earlier.

    BUYER BEWARE: on a Sunday for brunch be mindful of your tab. According to the blonde bartender at front who is otherwise very nice, after 4pm your $8 champagne becomes $12 (at the bar anyway)! #takeno

    Service was good. Pernil was off the meat rack!!! Paul, the manager, is a tool. Please, don't ever ask him to play the music you like, because he'll change it. And his pants are tight ...
