Great cubano sandwiches. Very nice staff. Flan was delish! Cute atmosphere.
The food was amazing. Staff was friendly and helpful in deciding what we should try on the menu. I will definitely be back.
The food at Havana is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! The empanadas and mojito flights are a must have!! The ambiance is nice and authentic Cuban. The host and wait staff are extremely accommodating and kind. Thank you for a great experience...we’ll be back soon!!
This was the first time I went to Havana. It was great. The food was delicious. I would definitely recommend the tequila steak.
I brought my girlfriend and parents here for my mom's birthday after having been to Havana once before. It didn't disappoint. Given the occasion, I had left a note on my reservation asking that a dessert be brought out for my mom. At the end of the meal the server brought out a delicious piece of chocolate cake with a lit candle - free of cost! My dad mentioned to the server that steak on his jibarito was slightly overcooked and the meal was immediately taken off of our bill. All other three meals (and appetizers) were tasty and exceeded expectations. Food was flavorful and the service was EXCELLENT. Havana has gained a loyal customer!
Overall experience was amazing!!! Service was on point and recommendations were so delicious and glad we listened to him!!!
Great little place with amazing food & Mojitos!!!! Definitely a great spot for a quick bite or to take you time and enjoy!
Restaurant was absolutely freezing. Asked staff if they could turn up heat and they replied that it was on. Had a salad, tomatoes were favorless--disappointing experience overall.
Made a reservation here for a weeknight and read that there was valet parking; was told there is no valet parking on weeknights so had to go park car in freezing cold. Despite having a reservation, we were seated at a table by the door and all had to wear our coats because it was so cold. Food was nothing special and service was rather curt. Definitively not worth visiting again.
Food was better than expected and the food was cooked well and well presented. Had the pulled pork with creamed corn sauce and literally finished everything on the plate.
Would definitely come again to try other offerings.
The drinks were fairly priced compared to other restaurants in the area ($10 cocktails), but were very strong and not 90% ice.
The customer service was excellent. I was seated right away upon arrival. Food was perfect.
Such wonderful service and the food was amazing!! We had the salmon and pulled pork. Thank you!
We love Havana. We had the pulled park on mashed potatoes and Cuban sandwich. Both were delicious. Service was excellent as usual. Highly recommend this North Clark St. restaurant.
Food was so delicious! Just what we were looking for in a varied menu!
The Cubano Steak and Tortilla soup were both phenomenal. The Sangria is a bit on the sweet side but also tasty.
good food , space is tight but ambiance is great
Very authentic Cuban food, great rum & tequila list. Service was awesome!!
Went to Havana for a ladies night out with friends from out of town. The food and drinks were amazing and the music and dancing were so much fun.
PHENOMENAL. SERIOUSLY. MY FAVORITE RESTAURANT IN CHICAGO. get the crab cakes and chimis. thank me later.
Been coming here for years! Best place for a fun, group dinner / night out. The best mojitos! Chimichangas are a must try! Love planning nights here because I know they'll always been a great time!
Excellent food and service. Best Cuban food in the city.
Great food and ambiance for casual dining experience.
We came to Havana on New Year’s Eve with our daughters, ages 9 and 12. All of us loved our food and the service was great. We will return for sure! We ordered based on our servers recommendations, and we’re very happy that we did.
Great friendly service, awesome live music, and great vegetarian options.
A River North Gem. Food was delicious. We had the jibarito steak (steak sandwich served between two friend plantains) and the pernil (slow roasted pork) - so very flavorful. The flan dessert was out of this world (perhaps could give my mom's a run for the money) and the cafe con leche brought tears to my eyes because it made me so homesick. If you are craving exceptional Cuban / Puerto Rican food in downtown Chicago that reminds you of the home cooked meals you had back home, this is your place. Also, the rum and mojito flights that we enjoyed were quite lovely and fun too!
Best Cubano in Chicago! We will definitely go back when we’re in town again! Wished we would have found this place sooner on our trip because we would have gone back again the next day but they are closed on sundays
Consistently good food and service. Accommodated a change in party size, no rush even with a late arriving guest, split dishes...just great overall service. Delicious sauces on a variety of dishes. Don’t miss the chimmies for an appetizer. Can get a bit loud when super busy, but was not that night.
We made a last minute reservation for Christmas dinner due to travel plans. The restaurant was clearly understaffed. Our waitress seemed highly stressed. We did everything we could to be flexible and calming to her. She tried her best. While everything was just ‘okay’ as at least one of our dishes was cold by the time it came out the really upsetting issue was the bill. It was over twice the accurate amount. There were four drinks we didn’t have at all and two of our entrees appeared FIVE times! So there were a total of nine entrees on the bill for a four top. Thankfully we looked at the bill closely as we were in a hurry at the end to leave. Once we pointed it out it took a really long tine to get an accurate bill. Plus, the reaction of the error was not what one would expect for being over charged to that extent. If anything f it is a reminder to look at the details on a bill.
Wonderful experience. Delicious mojitos, fresh ceviche and crab cake appetizers along with excellent guacamole. Entries were fantastic. Plantain encrusted halibut, Cuban steak sandwich, fresh salads, and a tasty chicken and spinach dish. Classic flan for dessert was a nice finish. My only complaint is that the tables are a bit small. Looking forward to going back for sure. Make a reservation or you will be waiting a while.
The food is consistently good... Pork, chicken, fish all tasty
Have a great dinner staff was great good vibe in the city. Can’t wait to go back
Food is VERY BLAND. Service is ok. Very small , limited seating. I feel my local taqueria is better, with actually real flavorful food wouldn’t waste my time going back.
Fourth time at Havana and can’t wait to go back. Inventive drinks menu and excellent food. Top choices this time were the Rollitos Manchegos -chicken breast stuffed with spinach and cheese, and Jalea Mariscos, kind of a creamy version of a seafood paella with a very generous amount of seafood.
Jalea de Mariscos and peach mojito were excellent.
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.
