Although I had a reservation, it still took a little bit to be seated.
We were in the main diningroom..extremely loud atmosphere. Very hard to have a conversation...not for a romantic night.
Place is perfect as a dance club or after work for drinks & apps ( happy hour )

Easy to make reservations online , when we arrived we were seated almost immediately. Great atmosphere and food was excellent . Service was very good . After dining we went downstairs to lounge where there was a DJ and we danced a few hours. Happy Hour from 10-11pm , unheard of. We will most definitely be back !!

Chef was not flexible to make a slight change to the way a fish dish was prepared. The fish was fried and I asked if they could grill it instead. I got a lame excuse that they couldn't contaminant the grill. The drinks down in the club where measured so precisely while charging a premium price of $14 for a Patron and it was Roca Patron, a step below Silver.
If you like to dance the DJ was pretty good except the floor is cement and not easy to dance on compared to a wood floor.

This place has a lot of potential. The presentation of the food is great and the food was cooked well but lacked a lot of flavor. Our waitress was very nice but would disappear often making our whole dining experience last over 2 1/2 hours.

I tried Cafe Havana during restaurant week. My husband and i went on a sat. We had a reservation, but still had to wait 20 minutes for our table. The place where we were seated, was so noisy, and it seemed that people were not talking, but yelling in my ear. My husband and I almost left, but the hostess offered us another table.This area was near the bar, but we were hungry and this area was not as loud. The food was delicious and the service was great. I would definitely like to try this restaurant again, on a much quieter evening. I have to say the staff was really polite and gave great service.

Cafe Havana serves interesting Cuban dishes, all prepared with great care. It is jam packed on weekend evenings and the noise level is high, but still allowing for conversation at your table.
We dined here on the restaurant week menu. The regular menu is very pricey. The last time we ate here outside of restaurant week it cost us almost $200 for 2 with one drink each!

A personal gripe is that there are no prices on the drinks menu. I find this intolerable.

The decor is very attractive.

The service is professional and the servers are attentive. We never got the "who gets the vieja ropa" question.

If you can deal with the prices this is a great restaurant.

We've been wanting to go but made the time during Restaurant Week. Bar was hopping and had great fresh margaritas. Dinner was incredible - seasoned but not salty or greasy. Best Mofungo we've ever had. We each had something different to taste as much as possible! Nothing was lacking

Went here with my wife for dinner during Restaurant Week. The restaurant has a contemporary-themed decor and the dining area is quite large. Nicely decorated with music piped in through ceiling speakers (for 5 PM it was a little too loud since there weren't many diners in the room at the time). The service was outstanding. Our server (Stephen) was attentive to our table throughout our dinner and there were other wait staff who served us our dinners and refilled our water glasses. The food was good. The stuffed plantain appetizer was very tasty. For dinner, my wife had the Arroz con Pollo while I had the slow-roasted pulled pork with Mofango as my side. Both were good preparations and presentations of somewhat typical dishes. Flan and tres leche cake were our dessert choices, both of which were excellent. Overall, a good dining experience. We both enjoy south Florida and Key West Cuban cooking so Restaurant Week gave us a chance to visit Cafe Havana and try their menu offerings.

we love Cafe Havana but I request a romantic table for my birthday and was seated in the main dining area and it was noisy and the server did not come over for about 7 minutes. I would have loved to have sat near the fire place or in the Bright green room in the corner. Other than that no complaints food awesome as always and the Server was very nice the need to also bring back their brunch which was amazing miss that
