The food was good but the afternoon service was rushed. It wasn’t crowded the server just seemed hurried. The glasses on the table were dirty as well as the decor.

Food was disgusting!! Tasted like I was eating a block of salt, blast the music so it’s impossible to have a conversation at dinner and they have no servers that speak English.

This past Tuesday we enjoyed the happy hour where drinks were 50% off. There were no specials for appetizers but they had live entertainment on the patio which was very nice. After drinks we went into the main restaurant to have entrees. Overall a fun night

We love this place. It must have been an off night though. We arrived for reservations at 6:00pm on a Friday night. Table of 8. After 10-12 minutes of not seeing a server, I had to place our drink order with the hostess....waiter did show up and came back with our drinks, which were very good. We ordered appetizers for the table, 30 minutes after not having our appetizers, and not seeing our waiter either, I tracked down an employee who said, “sorry, we were having a staff meeting.” Appetizers finally came and they were delicious. It was the combo appetizer and it actually serves 2-3 people. Various dinner plates came out on time with no issues. Staff recovered. Food was good, and we have always had a good time at this place. We will come back and just hope for a better experience.

The items described on menu is not was served.I ordered a quinoa salad it had no tomatoes or most of the condiments listed on the menu. There where no avocados available for order. Some of food came out room temperature. Waited a while to get our drinks. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Sister ordered fried chicken took a bite and informed the waiter she did not like it and still was charged.

Delicious food. One of the dishes came out with the wrong order but the person in our party decided to just eat it. All of the food came out less than warm. This place is always busy and the food is good but service is not the best. Keep coming back between long absences and still keep getting the same result. Plenty of other Cuban or latin restaurants in the area to go instead . Not sure this restaurant is worth the long wait times if you can’t get a reservation nor is the price point worth it for the food they serve. Atmosphere is really nice though, if that is more of the draw for some.

Service was a bit slow at first. Took quite a bit to get drinks to table eventhough there were 4 bartenders behind the bar. When food came, the stake was cold, rest of the food warm at best. Waiter took the plate to bring it back rewarmed, not a new plate. Talked to manager, apologized and brought a new plate. Foot was mediocre at best. Have to give credit in trying to resolve situation, but I will not go back for food, that's for sure. Drinks were good.

La muchacha que me atendió fue encantadora , cualquier pregunta que yo le hiciera sabia responderla con todo conocimiento, me quede sobre toda fascinada con que tienen 16 tipos de mojitos vendré siempre gracias por todo .
