I love this place! This week alone, I’ve had a girls night out, work related lunch and a date night. The service and food are always consistently great!
The ambiance is very romantic and cozy!
AmaZing. We go almost every month haha I tried almost all the menu (meats). Delicious. They have a lifetime customer! Alex our server was great!
First day back for in restaurant seating and being Valentine's Day can forgive a slow kitchen. Food as always good and consistent. Had a nice surprise in that group of 12 picked up our meal tab.
The food was great, the customer service was great, and the ambiance was great. It was outdoor seating, but it is closed in tent and the heaters keep you very warm. The tables are also spaced out so you feel warm and safe.
It was way to cold. I suggest more heaters.
We could Drink and eat more if the cold was held better. Food was amazing
The food is delicious! They give great portions and the service is incredible.
We used to come here weekly before we moved out of state. When we knew we’d be in town we immediately made a reservation because we missed it so much. Keep doing what you’re doing!!
Food usually very good but this time one of the orders to go was not.
Service always great.
Drinks are very good.
My daughter will call to let the manager know about it. I at least expect the order to be replaced.
I will recommend cuba de ayer. We still going to eat there.
Delicious food. Very nice staff. Strict sanitation and Covid precautions that made me feel safe. Tent was warm! Can’t wait to go back soon.
The food was excellent. They went out of their way to give us an outside table that was not in the mostly-enclosed tent.
Food is always excellent. Felt safe and all protocols followed.
The food was absolutely amazing. I lived in Miami for a couple years, and I love Cuban food. The ropa vieja was delicious, as were the empanadas. Everything we had was good. The service was prompt and the food came out quickly. Due to Covid, we were sitting in the outdoor tented area. There were several heaters and the tables were spaced apart. Nice and toasty! As for the ambience, when we stepped into the actual restaurant to announce our arrival, they had some nice music playing indoors. It would’ve been nice to have some of that music playing outside in the tent area as well, which could help distract you from the fact that you’re sitting in a parking lot. But I definitely plan to return.
10/10 Recommend...my go to place for latin food!!!
we love this place great server this time we will be back
I absolutely love this place!!!! Amazing food and customer service!
Never dissapoints!!! the lechon asado and those sweet plantains!!
Are waiter was attentive, knowledgeable, professional and very suggestive he make me eat dessert LOL. best service ever!
Everything was great 👍🏼 Food, atmosphere and attention
Always delicious & excellent service.
Food was so good, we went back the next day! A hidden gem!
Wonderful service and great good
I’m not sure if it’s was due to only one waiter for the night, however I’ve had better experience in the past. We were not asked if we wanted more water or another drink. My wife decided to ask for two mojito and we only served one and the first two had no rum. We could have send it back and just cut our night early. However we were celebrating our anniversary and we stated let’s not get bother today out of all days. Management please assist to serve or call enough to cover different sitting areas. Just a suggestion.
It was an amazing experience over all.
Everything was great as always but waited about 45 minutes for our dinner prefer.
Good is always very good and service is great. Never received a dish I didn't like. Mojitos are delicious. We dined outside, and the servers turned on two heaters to make it more comfortable.
We love this place. Food is great and Margarita's are super
The food has yet to ever disappoint, and I appreciated the "expanded" patio area (tent seating) to add more outdoor dining space.
This was my second visit in a three week time period. It had been a while since I had been prior. The food, drinks and whole experience was fantastic! I think they do a really nice job on keeping the environment clean and attempting to keep all their guests safe.
The food is always good here and they did a great job with the outside dining!
Excellent service! Really Cuban flavor. We were six people and all of us are satisfied with service and food. Absolutely, recommended. The best Cuban restaurant in the DMV.
First time dining here. Food was outstanding. Considering dining out during covid-19 I was great. We sat outside under cover with patio heaters. They take all precautions. I will enjoy coming back soon.
A great COVID restaurant choice with indoor and warm outdoor seating. The servers take a precautions and advise guests to mask up when not eating or drinking. Great variety on menu for all to find something they like. Prices still make this a great value dining out experience.
All staff was friendly and very attentive. Music was at moderate level in which allow for a conversation without having to speak loudly or yell. Sanitize: I always clean my table with antibacterial wipes and this is the ONLY place that the wipe did not change color. Restaurant look elegance and as if it was newly renovated.
My first time visiting, my husband has been there before. I was craving real Cuban food and was pleasantly surprised with the restaurant, the food and the service. I wasn’t sure what to expect and with COVID19 issues. It was well worth it.
When dining outdoors you have to expect some noise no matter where you are. However, Cuba de Ayer has succeeded in making outdoor dining on a busy highway enjoyable.
I made a reservation just in case so we got a table right away. There were only a few other groups dining at noon. The service was excellent and attentive. My meal was Lechon Asado with rice and red beans plus crispy plantains and very good. Took half home to have for dinner. Desert was Flan was was outstanding...The menu is very extensive and should cater to every possible taste for Cuban food.
Everything was great, but we had a reservation for outside. We were placed in the sun. Umbrellas were broken.
Vaca frita and churassco!! The best
Perfect outdoor dining with great food and drinks.
