Great food and drinks, but extremely loud
Awesome time! Great food.
Amazing. Coming back very soon
Food was great along with the vibe and ambiance. The cocktails were fabulous.
Service was fantastic and the food was excellent. We are outside on a warm October evening.
Took a while to get a server once we sat down, but after that it was a great experience
Food was outstanding! Service was very good. Small restaurant that was very loud. Packed on a Friday night
We didn’t eat there. We wanted to. We sat down, we ordered drinks. I asked if there was ANYTHING on the menu that I could eat given I am allergic to Garlic. I was offered a green salad with no dressing. Or, boiled chicken with plain white rice. Uh, no thank you. We left.
We had a great evening at Havana. Our service was exceptional. The food was bright and flavorful. The cocktail selection complimented the food nicely.
I was hoping for better selection for dinner menu. Portions pretty good. Service was good. Very friendly.
We came here on Saturday evening for a dinner. Food and drinks were good but we felt very rushed by the waitress
Always a great time at Havana! Empanadas and mojitos best in town!
Was at Havana on a Monday for lunch. Sat near the front for a quiet table. The service was good. We weren’t hurried. One order was the original Cuban which was very tasty. A nice surprise were the fries which were a mix of white and sweet potatoes. The other order was chicken enchilada which were also very good. Would return again to try other items on the menu. BTW this is a small restaurant which appeals to us.
Went here for some food before a show. Service was great and efficient. Delicious cocktails, and a great mix of traditional with new Cuban food. Great spot for a different type of food than what you commonly find in River North!
This is actually the second time I was here. Both times the food has been great. They offer classic Cuban dishes as well as Cuban/Mexican fusion. Friday night pitchers of mojitos is perfect for dinner with friends. The service is excellent as well. Prices are reasonable too.
We had always been told about their pitchers of mojitos. Unfortunately, they weren't on special that day but we got a couple other specialty drinks which were great. Just means we'll have to come back another time for the mojitos.
Food was mediocre, service was not good, and I learned when I got my check that my "well scotch"was Glenlivet 12yr for 15.50 for a short pour.
2 of the 3 people at the table had their order wrong. First time here & wasn’t a good look. Guacamole was great!
We were hoping for authentic cuban food. It wasn't. For someone who doesnt know the difference then the food was OK. Not authentic - we are Cubans and know the difference
Something a bit different. Full of flavour and unusual combinations. Will go back next time we are in Chicago.
The food and service were great!!! Our waiters were very timely and gracious not to mention the ambiance of patio dining. Dining at Havana was the perfect summer night!!
Good service and wide menu but food was mediocre.
Had a great time! Guava monitors were delish!
What a wonderful meal. The food was delicious, service was impeccable! We booked this reservation having never been at this restaurant and were extremely pleased. We will be back.
The good was great at Havana. There was not one thing that we did not enjoy. We started with guacamole, calamari, and crab cakes, which were all very good. For entrees we have pulled pork, pork chops, tequila steak, and paella. Every entree was very good. The entrees were also large and filling.
It was fun and exciting and super good food
Perfect place to spend International Rum Day! Enjoyed the rum flights but will probably go back to our favorites-mojitos.
Great food and drinks as usual. Love this place.
Great menu items - Can be a bit of a wait if you do not have a reservation. Also, there are some outside seating but only a few tables so expect to wait for those. Noise level is pretty high in this place - at 11pm they clear out the tables for salsa dancing. I met up w/ some friends there and we all enjoyed our meals and drinks - prices are good given the location and food quality.
We went for a business meal and everyone left with a happy belly! The guacamole and chips are delicious, just make sure you know what you're signing up for if you get a full order - it's a lot! The wait staff luckily always warns you about the portion size. Everyone in our group had either the carne asada or the ropa vieja and we were all happy. Don't skip the platanos - so yum!
The food, service and overall experience was wonderful. Had the ceviche mixto and chimichangas as the appetizers. The ceviche came with fried plaintains as well as chips which was amazing. The chimichangas were in a delicious sauce that made you want more.
Then entrees were delicious! I believe I had the pollo coco limón. Came with delicious grilled veggies and the sauce went so well with the chicken.
Let’s not forget the drinks! Wonderful tasting monjitos. My favorite was the coconut mojito. So refreshing and the coconut complimented the mint and lime flavors.
I will definitely be back!
This is a small, no frills place but I loved the "vaca frita" and the congrí. Both items were very flavorful. I would definitely go back.
Great authentic Cuban food with choices for everyone. Friendly staff to answer all your questions & Great Mojito’s !
The food was well prepared and very good. The service was good and the waitress was informative.
Loved the great Cuban inspired the food. The mojitos were outstanding.
Food and service was ok, but it was way too noisy. I needed ear plugs!
outstanding food and service; maybe the best Cuban restaurant in Chicago and certainly the best in the downtown/River North area. Very innovative menu and a great value.
My wife is Cuban and I am in love with Cuban cuisine. I was in Chicago for business and found Havana on OpenTable and decided to give it a try. The tostones were great as well as the ropa vieja. Nice place with friendly service.
Great food and drinks. I guess they were short staffed. We had to wait for while to find our server.
Cocktails were ok, food was made for tourist or white people taste buds, and service was unbelievable slow. Will not be back, too many good places in the city to eat instead or I’ll just wait till I go home to FL.
