The Cuban was a great place for my friends and I to catch up over brunch. Everything we ordered was delicious and the service was friendly. We left saying we'd love to return for dinner and drinks!

I made a reservation for 7:30pm for my fiancé and I. Drove all the way from Suffolk county. Only to get there for them to tell us that we had to wait an hour and a half because they were seated to capacity. I was very confused as to why you would allow reservations and not keep them. It was extremely irritating because we drove almost 50 mins to get there and couldn’t even eat there.

The food and drinks were delicious. Our waiter was very attentive. The price was reasonable for the quantity of food. My only concern was that I was told there was only a 5 min grace period and I arrived about 10 minutes late for the reservation. But the wait for a table was not long. I will definitely be coming back soon to dine!

Made reservations for Valentine’s Day, when arrived lady told me her system is down and we will have to wait to be called the wait was 1 hour. I was really upset and disappointed the owner saw we waited because we had no choice. He said for fast seating their is a table outside we took it. Very cold, the heat doesn’t work as it should. They should have informed people reservations wasn’t not valid especially on Valentine’s Day.

My service at the cuban was very horrible. I made reservations, I had to wait 1 hour and 20 mins more! Then when I got called to sit, I was rushed to eat. I only had 30 minutes to order my food and drinks and eat! With 30 minutes only! I was rushed! Horrible horrible service!

Absolutely horrible service. I had an 8:30pm reservation for 2 on Valentine’s Day weekend. Upon our arrival, the hostess tells us that the reservation system had crashed and that we had to wait 45 minutes to dine. While I understand that things happen, it was evident that The Cuban is unorganized and had no backup list of reservations for that night. The hostess had an attitude on top of it. While we waited in the car, after about 30 minutes, I called to see how much longer the wait would be (hoping they would take us earlier than 45 minutes). The hostess tells us that it was going to be another 30 minutes. We wait ANOTHER 45 minutes and decided to go eat somewhere else. The best part is, the Cuban never even called us back for a table! Never relying on this restaurant again. My Valentine’s Day plan was ruined thanks to them.

Everything this was great, the only negative I had was they didn’t recognize/honor the reservations I made through OpenTable few day prior and we had to be placed on a waitlist for 60 minutes to have a table available. A notification of some sort would have been appreciated

I made reservations for 8pm on Saturday night for 2 . When we arrived the host refused to accommodate us ., he said they don’t accept reservation from open table on weekends It says somewhere on the app .. he decided to lie to us because it was overcrowded night with a bunch ppl waiting for table in small crowded outdoor seating area.He was rude & totally ignored us, he rather lie to us. Bad costumer service. There’s nothing stated on rest web & open about reservation on wknd .

came out here with my girlfriend for our anniversary, she ordered the arroz con pollo and I the big platter with chorizo, chicken, steak, pork chops, rice with beans and maduros. However when the food came out, my plate was overall a 10/10 but my girlfriend was -5/10. The arroz con pollo was wet, and not cooked enough, the rice was hard and not edible. We waited for out waiter but the manager came to our table and asked if everything was okay and I explained to her what had happened and if we could change the rice for arroz morro, and she did so! Overall the dinner was really good & left overs were awesome ! definitely will come back.
