The ambiance and decor were electrifying. My girlfriend and I decided to have dinner and drinks. The mojito bought me back to Miami just enough sugar cane but not too sweet and refreshing!

Wonderful! Food was excellent, great music, and a beautiful waterfront view!

Very nice restaurant, with a great location. The food is delicious and the ambiance incredible. The music was perfect, not loud at all.

My husband and I, along with amazing friends visited Son Cubano in West New York, and I must say it was indeed a memorable time.
