Always a great meal with dependably good service, especially early in the evening. Noise level can get a bit high but it's always been "happy" noise. We have a couple favorites on the menu that are soooo good it's hard to order anything else. When we have explored the menu the dishes have been great as well. Good value and portions are large enough to share. It remains a "go to" for us.
Great drinks (try the Mojitos)! Food was awesome as well!
There were two of us. My meal was great. My friend's was not. He sent it back and got a salad which also was not great. After that he gave up. To the restaurant's credit they tried to make it up to us.
Great time and food.
Skip the appetizers and save your appetite for the mains. Vaca Frita was amazing.
As always, excellent food and outstanding mojitos! And as usual very loud.
Great Cuban(ish) spot in River North! Really good food
The food ( and sauces) are always delicious! Server, Olga, is pleasant, personable, attentive.
Pleasant find if looking for authentic cuisine. Excellent wait staff, well educated regarding menu options which was helpful for someone without background on food from region.
All of our dishes, service, and value were outstanding. Booths on the small side.
We like Havana because of its authentic food. What makes the food great are the sauces. For example, I had the pork chops and the sauce was amazing. If you go, I highly recommend the empanada trio. These are truly amazing. In fact, next time, I may just have two orders of this appetizer for dinner.
Cuban food is not very authentic. Although some very tasty like the ceviche.
We were looking for something different while staying in Chicago. Havana didn’t disappoint. Very authentic, reminding us of the wonderful meals we ate while actually in Cuba. Would recommend and definitely go back.
Cool vibe, authentic-feeling atmosphere. Really enjoyed the food.
Food was great, 2/4 of our family are vegetarian so it’s always nice to find great food that everyone can enjoy. Service was nice. We had an earlier reservation, it definitely got busier as the evening progressed. The creamy garlic sauce that comes with the fried plantain appetizer was incredible.
Olga, our waitress was awesome, very attentive and our glasses never went empty. Food was awesome and reservations were a breeze. If I had to make a suggestion, turn the music up a little because it does get loud with people talking.
First time at Havana - it will not be our last. Service was outstanding (Johnny was our waiter). Food was authentic and delicious. Menu was packed full of an assortment of Cuban and Cuban flair foods. We had Cuban Salad, Portabella Mushrooms and Crab Cakes with a sauce that was out of this world. Highly recommend this restaurant over others on a street full of restaurants (N. Clark St).
Great variety on the menu and the food was authentic. Flavors were wonderful. If you like things spicy, let you server know - they do it very well. The atmosphere was relaxed and casual. The only thing that prevented a 5 star rating was the service. The server was polite and friendly, but then seemed to forget about us after the meal was served. After 25 minutes of waiting, we wound up getting the dessert menu from the busboy. It also took 2 requests to get the check.
Outstanding place. One of the best Cuban Restaurants I’ve ever been to.
The carne con tequila was Amazing!
Food is fabulous, service is great but music was so loud it hurt! We’ll be back but not for a late dinner.
Great atmosphere and food.
The main floor was crowded and very noisy on a Friday evening, but feeling our pain the host quickly led us to their downstairs space. It was quite and pleasant, with room around the tables, and the service down there was still very attentive. The food was great, and I would return to the downstairs space in a moment.
We were disappointed they did not make Croquetas they come in ham or chicken in most places which is a staple of Cuban food. The Cuban Steak was not that tasty. Have had better Cuban food. Might be because the owner is Cuban but the cooks are not. The water person was super nice which made our night fun.
Went with work colleagues. Booths are pretty small but otherwise, we loved it! The food and drinks were authentic and delicious. Will definitely be back.
The food was delicious. I’ve eaten here twice about 3 years apart. The consistency in quality, taste, presentation and atmosphere was good to see. Love the atmosphere which is warm and cozy.
Decent food -- nothing that I had screamed amazing but it was good cuban food. The staff was very welcoming and the food came out quick!
The food was so flavorful. We got the alambres shrimp( to die for, highly recommend) and the tostones (great). We also got mojitos that were very good. I had the breaded chicken with pablano cream sauce...it was delicious! Our waitress also brought flan for my hubby's birthday. The waitress was nice, but could have been a bit more enthusiastic. The host who sat us rocked...cool guy. Recommend this spot for a casual fun night with flavorful food
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!
