Very crowded and we did have a wait to be seated even though we had reservations. Having said that, we did notice that the hostess went out of her way to accomodate people and she was very gracious. My dish was wonderful - unique and delicious. We had mojitos and they were wonderful but bar service was backed up. Very energetic and young urban ambiance. We will go back and may try the dinner menu next time.

This is the place to enjoy energy, delicious dishes and local ambiance with Cuban enhancements. The music volume made it difficult for conversations to flow, but we raised our voices and still relished the overall experience. The -Young Beet Salad- was fresh and a favorite at our table, but the slow roasted pork was the BEST!

Everything was very flavorful. I enjoyed the appetizers and the drinks. I had the "some like it hot" and my dinner companion had the berry mojito. Both were excellent. We had the shrimp, the ahi tuna and the fritters. They were very tasty, we also had the eggplant and garbanzo bean stew which was very good also. It is very lively and loud. I definitely will go back.

Excellent Cuban Food
I have been wanting to visit Cana for a while and sorry I waited so long. Excellent food all around (tasted others dishes and wished I had ordered EVERYTHING). Only down side is a bit slow on the service part and we had a 'stinky' man walking by the restaurant quite a few times creating a very unpleasant atmosphere. Great food though, friendly staff, drinks were good (quite pricey, so don't plan to drink a lot here) but well worth the visit and definitely plan to return.

Menu says it all
Variety provides good introduction to Cuban cuisine. Some of the dishes could use a little more heat.

Our table was reserved & ready. We were seated immediately. Few minor hiccups, maybe not enough wait staff. the waitress was very courteous, she would be gone longer than normal. I ordered my coffee with the appetizers & did not get it until midway through main course, & when I got it, it was not what I had ordered. My friend ordered a sandwich that was supposed to come with egg & the egg was not on it. By the time she got the egg, her sandwich was cold. Also the alcoholic drinks were strong. One of my friends could not drink her drink.The food presentation was awesome. The food was good. the cuban band arrived & was good also. Again, the only complaint was not enough waiters/waitresses.

The Sunday I decided to go to Cana's for brunch was the day the Band was M.I.A...they didn't show up. Even though that was the very reason why I chose to celebrate my birthday there and was looking forward to hearing them play, the food and the bottomless mimosa made up for my disappointment.
Just make sure you make reservations a week in advance if booking for a group.

The Staff is Fantastic
I had my birthday brunch here and they really rolled out the red carpet for me. Almost everyone working there wished me a happy bday and they made sure my party of 10 and I were well taken care of. It's small, but they do a fantastic job handling large parties. Just book early and sit back and enjoy the food and music. I personally recommend the fried chicken. It's some of the best I've ever had!

Fun birthday dinner
Had a great time at this energetic and fun restaurant. Food was very good and portions are large. The Mojitos were great. They do need to work on service. it is a bit slow and the pacing is not very good. You have to ask for everything, the wait staff was not vey intituitive. And it is very loud. It is difficult to have a conversation with someone across the table. Turn down the music.

Best for Brunch
I was pleasantly surprised when after spending 20 minutes looking for parking near Lakeshore we were greeted by a friendly server and enjoyed a vibrant live Cuban band. Cana is definitely at the top of my list for Saturday brunch date locations.

Great food @ Cana
The food and drinks are really quite delicious. I've been here twice, now, and the food isconsistently sumptious. The 2 newbies I brought with me Friday LOVED their meals. Portions are generous.
It can be a bit noisy, no matter where one sits, even on a quieter night, just due to the high ceilings and music. Indoors an dout, really too small for alrger groups (4 - 6 woudl be about max).
Service is good, but I still get the idea that waiting on a customer or checking with a customer to see how things are, is just a bit tedious and it would be oh-so-much nicer if we'd maybe not arrived to clutter up the evening, and please go home soon ...

Food was very good. Our waitress was very attentive and helpful with the menu. Mojito's were good. This was our first visit and will definitely come back.

Fantastic food, as always
Love the food here. The service is always a little slow, but it does not hinder me from dining here. The music was a little loud for 10:30 on a Sunday morning. It makes sense for later in the day though.

We went to Cana for Sunday brunch. The food was delicious and with generous portion sizes. The restaurant is kind of small, so they fill up quickly. I'd recommend making a reservation if you plan on going noon or later.

Presentation & Presence
I've been to Cana for dinner twice and each time it has not disappointed us. Excellent food presentation, clever mix of flavors and textures brings a nice twist to Cuban cuisine. The portions are generous and served by attentive wait staff. The platanos con crema is more like a dessert than a side dish and all the desserts taste heavenly. My favorites are the flan de coco and the rice pudding, which has a crunchy caramelized topping like creme brulee. Enjoy!
