We went fairly late for dinner on a Sat night, after 9:30. Our party was seated right away and were assigned Roberto as our server. He swooped in with a tasty batch of plantain chips, yum! Roberto was very friendly, very knowledgeable about the menu, easily answered question and made some suggestions. Like bringing us a pitcher of sangria vs... More

Our goal is to always go to not tourist establishments. Or highly rated. Padrinos did not disappoint. this was my wife's favorite of the trip. My kids loved it as well. I had the Talapia which was very good but not the traditional Cuban food like my kids and wife ordered but all was very good

I met a friend here for lunch. I tried their lunch portion Lechon Asado and my friend had the Ropa Vieja. Both had great flavor and my pork was very tender. The rice and peas and plantains it came with made it really worthwhile. A little loud for lunch but that was because of the rowdy business crowd right behind... More

This used to be our favorite Cuban restaurant. Not anymore. Fish was watery. The plantain chips burned. The amarillos burned. The fried breast chicken greasy. My husband went talk manager and change his plate. Very sad about it not coming back
