Great authentic Cuban food.
Great authentic Cuban food. As in most restaurants these days, the wait staff doesn't mind interrupting your conversation to ask "How is everything?" Otherwise, the staff was friendly and competent.

Had great service with Nevada.
Had great service with Nevada. She made some recommendations which we took. Sizzling shrimp is one if the best things I've eaten. And I never would have tried the spicy margarita if it had not been recommended. It was delicious with cilantro and jalepeno. An odd combination but worked very well together. We are going back! Would love to have them serve brunch!

Our visit on 4.28.13
I am Cuban and I recommend this restaurant to all my friends who want to try good cuban food. The recipes are authentic as the chef is Cuban. My favorite dishes are: Cuban Sandwich, Tostones, Bistec Empanizado, Black Beans, Flan.
The Mojitos are to die for!

Great Food and People
I very much enjoyed all the selections of food and drinks. The mojito hit the spot on a hot day along with the wonderful food. Will go back soon for more delicious food.

Don't judge a book ...
I have lived in Frederick for many years, and since the facade of this restaurant has not changed from when it was a hamburger hole-in-the-wall, I was truly not expecting the ambiance and sophistication I found inside. It was spacious, we were treated very professionally, yet cordially, and the food was top shelf.

Pleasant place & good food!
The food is really good and varies with regular changes to the menu. Always a good variety and pleasant surprises. Staff are very friendly and the atmosphere good. They accommodate groups well, even have a nice tiki-like room in in back.

I've never been cooked for by a Cuban, so I can't say for sure but the food tasted pretty authentic. At least as or more authentic than any other Cuban restaurant I've been to. The food was delicious. My wife and I both really enjoyed a meals and the restaurant. It probably isn't a place to go for a romantic occasion but certainly fits the bill for almost any other occasion. We will definitely be going back!

Great - as usual!
We've been to Sabor De Cuba before and really enjoyed the food and drink! This time we brought friends and they were impressed as well. This is a great restaurant!

Came here on a Wed night with friends - did not know until we arrived that they had outdoor seating (Love al fresco!). The chef was our server - he was extremely attentive, helpful, and of course very knowledgeable about the entire menu. Started with drinks - the guava margarita was perfect! Split several appetizers - beef empanadas (delicious) and ham croquettes....the cuban grilled steak for dinner was especially good- including the sweet plantains. Tried all three desserts - the guava empanadas won the race, followed by the tres leche cake and then the flan. They stayed open late for us to finish our coffee as we enjoyed people watching on Patrick St. An altogether enjoyable night out, would definitely recommend it to others.

We went on a weeknight. Service was great. When I asked the waiter who also happened to be part owner/chef what dishes were his favorites, he recommended several, all of which we tried (5 in our party). He took our orders without writing anything down. All of our dinners were delicious, and all of them came out exactly as ordered. Would definitely go back.

Cozy and fun!
This is a great place! Small but you never felt cramed in. Our waiter was great and made good suggestions. The decorations were fun :) As classic car lovers we enjoyed the old car pictures. Our food was super flavorful and brought to us fast. Great mojitos! Check it out! We really enjoyed it and will be going back soon!

Quiet Sunday Evening
My daughter recommended this restaurant and, having developed a taste for Cuban food, I was looking forward to trying. Sunday night was quite slow but I suspect that won't last long.
We took our waitress' suggestions and she definitely led us in the right directions. The food was excellent. We shared beef empanada for appetizers and split our options for the main course, me for the Cuban steak and my partner for the Arroz con Pollo. Neither was what you would think of (normally chicken and rice is, at best, fairly benign) but the meals tasted great. Dessert was the tres leche cake which was very good but but also quite rich. There was also a special guava and cream cheese empanada that my wife (who says she hates guava) raved about.

Unassuming decor with quality food
Excellent savory food. Employees were helpful and accommodating. Prices were very reasonable.
