Delicious food but unfortunately too loud on a Friday night (we should have known better) for conversation between friends trying to catch up on life.

It was great. Our waiter Roberto was extremely attentive and went above and beyond when we made a request for a non-menu item. He accommodated our request and made our day. Also, they make the best Mojitos!

I have been here many times always love the food and atmosphere - I was disappointed this time we told the waitress we wanted to go some happy hour appetizers and she suggested a few she knew we were on a budget and wanted the specials - our bill came and she had added two appitozrs that we’re 18 dollars and not on the happy hour menu - I was disappointed but don’t blame the restaurant - not sure if I’ll go back

Greeted immediately and reservation was acknowledged. Seated right away. Very noisy environment. Between active conversations and two birthday celebration, conversation was difficult. Wide variety of menu items. Disappointed with store bought maraquitas on the table. How easy it would be to deep fry some plantains. Bagged variety with Typical bland stale taste and texture. Ceviche was very good. Pork shoulder steak was oK. Chicken version of vaca grits was good. Tostones we’re good. House cab and Chardonnay were fair to poor. There are many modest priced wines of much better quality. Management should explore. For an $11.00 price, house wine should be better. Overall 4/5. Not a place for conversation. Definitely a lively party scene with good Cuban food.

Let's start with the good. Our serve Jorge was excellent. Considering the restaurant was quite empty only a few tables were occupied. Jorge was on point. On top of our water being refilled and making sure we had everything we needed. He made a big deal about my dad's birthday and his service was excellent. 5 stars for him!!

Now to the rest of our experience. So we're Cuban and we know what tasty Cuban food taste like. This was not it. We were a party of 4 and we got the following:
👎🏼Ham croquetes for appetizer. Below average and they tasted microwaved.
👎🏼grilled chicken breast with rice and maduros. The chicken was so nasty.... I ate a few bites only. The maduros which is fried plantatins were so burnt as if they had gone in the drier multiple times. The rice was good though.
👎🏼my parents both got churasco which was sooooooooooo bland. No taste at all. The rice was good. They got french fries and Moro which is rice and beans cooked together.
👍🏼pork steak was good all things considering but def not worth talking about it recommending to others.
👍🏼dessert was good according to the others we got flan and tres leche.
Overall the vibes in there were cool because the decorations are vibrant. However the staff was not. From our table I could see the kitchen. The cooks were not wearing masks or gloves. They were touching their faces, each other and not practicing sanitary ways when handling food. That really grossed me out. We were seated close to the coffee making station and apparently that's where all the employees congragate and they were very loud. Even over the music playing.
Also the hostess were nice. However when you have an empty restaurant and you get asked for a specific table for a party of 4 who have tall men in the party..... Just accommodate us. We asked for two different bigger tables and the hostess said no because they were reserved for larger groups. We ate, paid and still those tables were empty.

We arrived one hour after they opened on Sunday. We made reservations, but there was ample seating at that time. The table seemed a little tight for a party of 4 adults and one child, but we managed. The waiter greeted us quickly and delivered menus and asked for our drink orders. The timing between appetizers, drinks, and lunch orders was adequate. The food and drinks were great. The pricing was extremely reasonable. The ambience was great. We would definitely return.
