Decent meal with tasteful food. The price for the portion is a bit expensive, but that’s the city of Miami in general. Would recommend for a quick meal that’s Cuban but is not authentic enough to set reservations and go back again.

My mom and I came here due to recommendations from friends who live in Miami and from people who worked at our hotel. I am a picky eater and I never had Cuban food before but I was willing to try it because my mom wanted to go and I LOVED it. I had the Vaca Frita - Braised Flank Steak (shredded) with onions and mojo. It was so delicious. Their mojo sauce had excellent flavor. Very fresh food. I also loved the plantain chips. My mom had the Cuban Sampler which was a Platter of Havana 1957 Chicken, Ropa Vieja and Lechón. She loved it! My mom also had the best mojito ever there! It was a lot of food so we had leftovers which we ate for breakfast the next day because the food was so good! It was also very easy to make a reservation online because this place gets so busy! Amazing atmosphere and great friendly staff! We will be back next time we are in Miami!

The food is always great but we were on vacation and were laughing a relaxing and could not help but feel rushed by the server as soon as we were done eating he rushed to ask us for dessert and when we asked for the bill he stood after bringing it he stood there as if he was rushing us to pay and leave i live this place every time i come to Miami i come there but this experience was very uncomfortable and for that reason will not go to that location again.

The Lincoln Road location ran out of Vaca Frita de Pollo, which was the only reason we came, so we left (our server there Carolina was very gracious and apologetic), and we went to the 14th and Ocean location. THEY HAD THE VACA FRITA DE POLLO! Our server there was excellent. Food was great as usual.

Sat outside, our waitress was really nice, the food was good but not nearly the best Cuban food we’ve had in South Beach, and it was a little on the pricey side.

Even with though we had a reservation, it took forever to be served.

The food was just OK, very average. Not even close to authentic Cuban food. Will never go there again.

Great sampler platter for those of us that don't know much about Cuban food. The mojito's were excellent and not overly sweet like other bars. Our waitress was energetic and helpful.

I've been to Lincoln Ave a couple of times and have always walked by Havana 1957, but had never eaten there. What a mistake - I should have eaten there YEARS ago! The food is incredible, the "vibe" is fun, the service is impeccable ... did I mention that the food was incredible???? If you come to South Beach, do yourself a favor - eat there!

We booked for 9 but they were able to seat us early as we had finished walking around the area. Outdoor dining is always nice. The waitress was fast and attentive and the food was great. Between us we tried a number of different dishes and drinks and everything was excellent. People say the food on Lincoln is sketchy but I was not disappointed at all and all 4 of us enjoyed our food. Would definitely go again when we are in the area and try different dishes.

Typical Cuban food, not fancy, but very tasty. Crockets, stuffed potatoes, and Ropa Vieja are very good. The stuffed Tostones ( plantains ) were soft as if they have been done for a while, kept frozen, or the oil was old. Drinks are good with good selection of Rums. Service is very good, outside. Overall I would say a 3.7. May come back to try some other dishes.
Sad to see the area change with many close stores and a different type of Vibe.
