We went to Laurels only after reading the above review. The restaurant is new, and I hope more people try it. The cuisine was excellent.

This is not native Cuban cuisine. It would never survive in the Mission. That said, the food (Cuban / Californian) is great. Traditional Cuban dishes (chicken with yellow rice, pargo frita, picadillo), with innovative Californian sauces and flavorings. The owner has said he's going to change to more normal Cuban recipes sometime. And that idea agreed with me, the first time I was there. But he hasn't yet; it's still Californian / Cuban, and still great. And now I hope he doesn't ever change. It's small, so you'll have to look carefully for it. But worth the search, if you like Cuban food, but don't care for the heavy stuffed feeling after eating huge overspiced platters of typical Cuban food.
