This was our second visit. The girl that answered the phone wasn't too accommodating with our requests when j called to confirm the reservation but when we arrived they did take care of us. We sat outside and enjoyed the NY views. Our 2 servers were super attentive & nice. We had the guava sparkling sangria it was delicious & we all enjoyed the Palomilla steak with a side of all the mofongos & that was amazing too. We had a fabulous time. Definetely recommend this location & restaurant.
We will surely be back again soon.

My family and I enjoyed a nice authentic Cuban meal on a Sunday. It gets crowded fast, so resrvations are a must. Service was friendly, food was delicious. I like that they have an elevator to accommodate a family member that is on a wheelchair. Just be careful and ask an employee to help with the elevator as the manager was concerned we would break it ☺.

Food is excellent and worth the money. Beautiful view. Hostess staff not very friendly. Got caught in flooding and they told me when I was late that I had no reservation anymore. Then they sat us.

We requested to be seated in the terrace but when we arrived they said they don't open it during the week. I guess its only a weekend thing. The table they seated us was in the middle of the restaurant instead of the terrace which is was bit small & a bit crowded. Specially when you are buying a few dishes and pitchers of sangria. Overall the prices of food are excellent and the food its always yummy. Definitely great place on a budget with an excellent food experience. Hope they open the terrace during the week. It will be more apelling to customers wanting to enjoy the NY VIEWS and outdoors during the summer months.

On the reservation I marked Birthday!
When at the restaurant no one ecknoledged it.
It will also be nice in a Cuban restaurant to play contemporary Cuban music and not just old one from 60 years ago or non Cuban at all.

This is a nice place to come and eat for cheap with family/friends. The food is good and the location is great right by the water, but somethings definitely need improvement. The biggest bummer for my visit was the reservation situation. First, it is quite difficult to get a table here without booking a week in advance for the weekend. It is crazy packed. Knowing this I made a reservation for Friday at 7:00pm and then called to double confirm it and then got an email to confirm it. Despite me confirming 3 TIMES when I arrived with my party ready to be seated they said they couldn’t find my booking-what?? The girl up front said a bunch of different things like “ you can’t book the same day, and you made a reservation for 6:30 not 7...”. None of this was true. I made a reservation for 5 including a baby and asked for a high chair in advance but she also tried saying the baby wasn’t included?? Good thing I had proof on my phone of my res. Made a week before with the correct time and amount of people. I found it so rude to have had to deal with that and having been treated like I was trying to get one over on them. It was totally their mistake. Other than the waiter clearing out plates before we were done with our appetizers and seeming to be in a bit of a rush, the overall experience was great but don’t expect stellar service. My advice to the restaurant- I know you’re very busy, but treat your customers with courtesy and apologize for your mistakes.

Below was my original submission, bu here is what happened: My friend forgot his name brand hoodie at the restaurant. We called the next day and they said "we got it". When I drove there 2 days later, it was nowhere to be found, and they kept me waiting there acting as if they are searching for it. Very rude and questionable.

If you can put up with the above, here was my original review after two different dinners.
Delicious food with great and courteous servers, walk upstairs to the bar if you plan to continue the fun

The food use to be very good and this time it was not enjoyable at all . The chicken was like rubber and the rice seemed day old. The table next to ours that came in after us was serviced ahead of us and it appeared as tho our waiter had forgotten about us at one point. Very disappointed

Overall this place is ok..the environment is good, the reason why, I give it 3 star is because I felt rushed by the waiters to order, to eat.
I understand it’s a business and they need to keep it moving..but they can give priority to whom is there first.
The food has too much artificial seasoning, as we say, too much “adobo”

Food was great but service was horrible. It seen like the waiter didnt wanted to be there, never got my appetizers so i cancelled the order when the main dishes came in, when putting my mothers plate on the table it slammed the plate on the table, my wife asked for something and never brought it she end up asking some one else.
