Havana 1957 - Espanola Way
We loved our meal here. Service was very good and welcoming. Lots of birthday celebrations. Cubano sandwich was HUGE and delicious. Even the basics like plantain chips and black beans were on point. Especially in South Beach was nice to find a great meal in this price range— highly recommend!
Nice ocean drive restaurant. No hustles. Just great Cuban food.
Thank you for joining us and leaving your review, Steven. We invite you to come back soon!
Tourist trap with very mediocre food. Would not recommend
Very loud, not “energetic”, just loud. They include 18% service charge in bill and do not mention it. A little off-putting.
We were a big group and the server who attended the table was excellent: fast, nice
For a restaurant in Miami Beach at a touristy location I wasn't expecting much but the food was excellent, just toned down a little so the tourists can enjoy
Thank you for your great review, Marie! We're glad you and your group enjoyed your visit, we invite you to come back soon.
Waiter had no time for us ordered most expensive items for us that we did not request never checked in. Was my 5th time but was worst experience.
Great dining experience. Love this location.
Lively and fun atmosphere, tasty food.
It was quick and easy
Thank you for giving us 5 stars, Richard. We're glad you enjoyed your visit.
Service was great the atmosphere was amazing !! Drinks were awesome
Last dinner of our vacation to Miami, beautiful restaurant, very lively. Food was great especially the tostones rellenos with the picadillo de habanero. Perfect evening to end our trip.
Absolutely delicious and accommodating!
Delicious, this is really worth it unlike the other tourist traps in Miami. The price is also good. The mojito and rum selection is excellent. I got the ropa vieja and it was so good!
Thank you for giving us 5 stars, Reyna. It really means a lot to us to read your opinion of our restaurant and hope to welcome you again soon.
This is our Favorite go to place when In Miami. Excellent food excellent service excellent drinks as always! Never disappoints
Thank you, MistyC. We're glad we're always up to the expectations. We hope to make your future visits just as great.
Great Location but food is just average. Service is amazing with great vibe of the place.
Thank you for leaving your 5 star rating. Come back soon.
Food was dry and tasteless too many black beans the black bean soup was the same as the black beans served with the entree 20percentserbice charge apparently did not represent tip to the server so with that and state tax and resort tax increased the bill by 30percent not worth it for 2chivken dishes,soup,drinks and dessert ($140)
We're sorry to learn the food was not as expected, Susan. We hope to have another chance to delight you with other items on our menu next time you visit.
Great ambiance, good service and food. Reasonable pricing for South Beach. Rainstorm created sincere challenges but the staff and people could not have been nicer.
Thank you for giving us 5 stars, We look forward to your return. Regards!
We had a party of 5. Everyone loved their meals. We loved the atmosphere of the restaurant and the district.
We will be back.
We're glad you and your party enjoyed the food. We hope to welcome you again soon.
The food is awful. This is a tourist trap.

Thank you for visiting our restaurant and leaving your rating.
We arrived at the reservation time and it was very busy on this Thursday night. We took a table outside, however, it began to rain and we stated to get wet. The hostess moved us to another table, still outside, but we were still getting wet. We paid for our drinks and left to find a dry place (inside) to eat. They need better awnings outside for rainy December weather.
Hello, Mark. Thank you for your feedback that helps us improve our service where applicable. We're sorry to hear this prevented you from having an excellent experience. We will review this with our team to see where we can improve and hope to make this up to you in the future. Thank you for your business.
$100 for simple food.

Amazing as always! I'm never disappointed

Food was amazing...
Thank you! We're glad you enjoyed your experience. Come to dine with us again soon!
Service could have been better. Received the check. I then remembered I had a 20% local discount coupon for restaurants on Espanola way. Waiter said he already put the transaction through and I should have informed him when we ordered. He said he would have to cancel the transaction. So I asked him to cancel and put through again...he said he couldn’t do that! Not cool.
Great food, high energy atmosphere, outside dining, casual, delicious cocktails! Overall great experience. Highly recommend!
Thank you for joining us and leaving your rating, RonH. We're pleased to hear your overall experience was great. We hope to host you again soon.
You failed to deliver the food that we ordered – my wife, whose birthday it was had her meal but mine was completely wrong – it was too late to change and re-order as she was already eating, so her birthday meal experience was ruined
Good afternoon, Kevin. Please accept our most sincere apologies for the mix-up in your last order. We are sorry this issue caused so much distress to you and your wife. At Havana 1957, we strive to deliver the best food. Unfortunately, due to shift changes, this may have unnoticed through our process. We would like to make up for this experience, for this reason, we have left a note to address your issue more personally.
Thank you to the Havana 1957 crew for making us feel welcomed. We had a wonderful time and love our Cuban dishes. May you continue providing excellent service.
Awesome. I love everything about this place. The staff are amazing, the food is delicious and the experience was one of a kind. Thank you so much for a wonderful evening.
Absolutely delicious. Get the house special chicken! The atmosphere is so lively and fun.
Thank you for your comments, Jennifer. We're glad you enjoyed your experience. Come back soon
Authentic Cuban, great service. Recommended.
Excellent and authentic Cuban cuisine. Excellent service.
Thank you, for your business andreview. We hope to welcome you again soon.
Overhyped place, lousy service, ridiculous prices, unacceptable mandatory 18% service charge applied to any number of diners.
This is the perfect example of a ripoff of ignorant tourists and the epitome of an unauthentic cuban restaurant. Their star drink at $13.99 a piece was an abysmal failure: they short-changed me of the amount of rum and the club soda in the drink was flat (no bubbles). The only redeeming feature is that the food was tasty, although not very plentiful.
In summary, avoid this place at all costs and patronize real cuban places in Little Havana
This was a very vibrant dining experience; just what you would expect from a Cuban restaurant. The food was great and the servers were friendly. Overall, a great experience!
Hello, Hannah. Thank you for reviewing Havana 1957. We're glad you enjoyed your experience.
I will admit I was skeptical about this place because it had so many locations in the Miami area but WOW! Endless amounts of flavor. The appetizer was recommend by our server and was spot on for what we were looking for. The pork cubes were fried but still very moist. My entree was to die for. The rice and beans were seasoned to perfection. In the middle of the entree there was what I suspected to be crispy pork skin and it was delicious. The slow oven roasted pork was juicy and packed with flavor and easy to tear apart. The entire meal was packed full of nothing but flava. Ever bite was much better than the last. Highly recommend this entree and sitting outside to people watch.
Hello, and thank you very much for leaving your comments. We're happy to learn you gave us a chance and enjoyed your meal so much. We hope to welcome you again soon for more fresh and flavorful Cuban fare.
Absolutely delicious! Whenever we visit Miami Havana 1957 is a must to dine at!
