Loved the live bandCame here for mothers day 5/11/2013 dinner. Stayed for the band and loved it. Mostly young and modern crowd. My mother is older but she enjoyed this as well. Great drinks, I recommend the mojitos (any flavor), Sangria wasn't great. Food was great as well I really loved the empanada trio for appetizers.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasantly Surprise~I've visited this restaurant in the past for mojitos and great music but never for dinner. I was pleasantly surprised last night during my first dinner experience with great latin appetizers and entrees. Our server was outstanding as well by recommending great dishes. As a prior restaurateur and current hospitality instructor, wins my vote.
Havanna Cheers :)5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond time and going back againSecond trip to Havana. We enjoyed both meals and look forward to going back to try other dishes. A little on the noisy side, but enjoyable.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother lovely evening atAnother lovely evening at Havana. Great drinks, great food, great service. No complaint from this gal (and her friends). :)4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA new Chicago favoriteMy wife and I were looking for a nice place to eat before a show that wouldn't break the bank. We had a fantastic experience at Havana. Really good food, great service, nice ambiance, and reasonable prices. There were so many things on the meny that looked creative and delicious. This is going to be a place we return to often. My only "complaint" would be that it's pretty noisy on a Saturday night, but that's typical of many places in River North.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was delicious. TheThe food was delicious. The waiter made suggestions for dinner and answered all of our questions. I would highly recommend this restaurant.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOur group of four was immediatelyOur group of four was immediately shown to our table, right on time, although the stylish Havana was bustling and full. The wait staff was attentive and helpful throughout. We started with the delicious house made guacamole, with two salsas. For entrees, I had the Cuban Roast Pork, which was succulent slices of pork loin topped with sautéed onions, accompanied by rice with beans, fired plantains and yucca. Equal to the best I've had in Miami. My companions had a superior ropa vieja, and a spicy chicken wrapped in banana leaves , which was juicy and complex. Of course, the pitcher of excellent mojitos added to the overall lovely evening. Highly recommended.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service! AmazingGreat food and service! Amazing Mojitos.
