Everything was great, service, food and friendly atmosphere, however inside the restaurant was to dark. Difficult for see enjoy and share food .... I like to see what I'm eating but the lighting was bad.... I was trying to figure it out what was in my plate ...

Dined on a Saturday, and grabbed drinks before our reservation. Black Cherry Capirhinia was excellent and the bartender was very friendly and knowledgeable. The ceviche and vaca Frita were winners! Service wasn’t great, our server disappeared and never came back to close us out, had to wave down the host, and Also never received a glass of wine that was ordered. Would come back though for the great food and drinks

A fantastic meal from start to finish! We requested a table downstairs in the bar where it was much quieter; the staff was very accommodating. Don’t leave before dessert — the chocolate with a hint of orange was to die for!

Food was ok at best. I ordered roasted pork. Presentation was good however flavor was bland. The meat came out with skin attached. There was much more fat than meat. The pork skin was chewy. The rice was scarce as they only placed a little around the meat. The service was ok. Within five minutes of meal arrival the waitress stopped to check on us. Other than that we didn’t see her and every time we tried to get her attention as she passed she was clearly focused on what she was doing at the time and didn’t see us. Manager did do a table touch near end of meal and asked if we where ok. By then I had eaten what I could and I didn’t respond to the negativity of our meal.

For the price you expect a flawless evening with good food. Unfortunately I will most likely not return.

Every time we have eaten here the food and the staff impress us. Each staff member seems to truly care that we have a great experience and the food is simply sublime.

We stopped in early after a matinee at the Kimmel Center. We were seated on the second level, a nice open and airy location. We shared a large salad, thoughtfully split for us in the kitchen. The Lechon Asado was delicious, and much too big to finish at one time. My wife finished her scallops though, also quite well prepared. This was our fourth time in the restaurant. We will return.

Alma De Cuba has some very nice Cuban dishes like Empanadas, Cava Frita and Ropa Vieja. They all pale in comparison to the Ceviche. I tasted four of them the Agua Chile Cobia, Thai Coconut Mixto, Rainbow and Mojito Shrimp. They were all very delicious. Don’t miss the chocolate cigar for dessert.

The ambiance is nice, no loud music. The food was tasty with reasonable proportion, nicely seasoned. It was a very nice experience.
