    We were not greeted by a server for at least 10 minutes and the restaurant was mostly empty at the time. One entree came to the table lukewarm. We will not go back - very disappointing.

    The whole experience was terrific. We arrived a few minutes early for our reservation and were seated right away. Service was friendly, attentive and helpful. Our server made helpful recommendations on menu items. Food was excellent. It was a bit dark, but not so bad that I couldn’t see or read the menu. We were seated on the top floor, so noise was not a problem, but i could see noise being a bit of an issue on the lower levels, especially the ground / bar level. Prices were high but worth it and expected at a restaurant of this quality in downtown Philly. I would return and would recommend.

    We had two servers and together they made one mediocre server. Drinks weak. Foods were amazing. Ambiance is always great.

    My wife and I love Alma de Cuba. The food is delicious, and they have some great cocktails. My favorite drink is the Roberto Burns. One of our top ten places to go in Philly.

    Popped in last minute for a light dinner & had a selection of ‘small’ plates, the smoked Wahoo Tacos were an excellent punch of flavor & serving size.
