Havana 1957 - Espanola Way
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.

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.
Great overall experience! Sit outdoors

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.

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!
Always a great experience when visiting Miami Beach!
Great food and drinks. Great service. Interior of restaurant was so small that we would have waited another hour after our reservation time to get a seat in there. Since it was as hot and muggy as Hades that late October night the outdoor table was uncomfortable. An oscillating fan overhead provided minor relief. He area is extremely loud and busy, that might be good or bad depending on your preference. This Espanola Way location is in a small but charming tourist area and very close to the famous Art Deco drive in South Beach.
I’ve been to this place several times and have always enjoyed the food. I visit every time I’m in town, this time I got a waitress that wasn’t very happy to be serving. The appetizer was really good we got the platter with a taste of everything. My main dish was the sampler of meats and rice and beans. The Ropa Vieja was not tender enough so I took a bite and left it. The lechón was salty, and the chicken was good. The black beans were so salty I couldn’t even enjoy the rice and beans with the chicken.
One of the things I truly dislike is when they come by your table and ask if things are good but leave so fast you’re unable to answer the question. I got that a couple of times.
So this was a pretty disappointing visit, I’ll have to think twice about visiting again and instead find a new place.
Your feedback is appreciated. We value you as a guest and we're sorry this occasion the service did not meet your standards and ours. We hope to have another chance to make up for the experience in the near future.
Absolutely loved everything about this restaurant. The food and staff were amazing! If I lived in miami I would definitely return.
We look forward to your return. Thank you for giving us 5 stars.
service was worst we've had all week. our reservation with the birthday specification was ignored. we chose this place thinking it would be special on my wife's 54th. she's in a wheel chair so we sat back next to the handicapped sign but she could not even wheel out to get to a restroom due to so many other people being seated almost on top of us. my wife was in tears when she left due to her birthday being ignored. i pointed out to the waiter that the lunch special specifically stated unlimited soft drinks but he charged us anyway for drinks we did not order (tonic water) so i kept the receipt to prove it & asked him to look at the menu. he discussed it with someone else but did not correct the wrong charge so i can appeal to the credit card & ensure we do not eat here again.
jeffm, We would like to take a moment to apologize for the less than a great experience. It is not common that we ignore a guest's birthday. We hope to have another chance to make up for this an make your next visit worthy of 5 stars. We also left a note to address your case more personally. Thank you for your business.
Amazing place but people can smoke outside. We had 4 heavy smokers next to us who kind of killed our fun, food was amazing.
Thank you for reviewing Havana 1957. We appreciate your feedback as it helps us improve our service and we hope to make your next experience with us even better.
Wonderful experience with even better food! Can't wait to go back!
Best restaurant in Miami.
Service was great.
The Street is full with people
Food is great
Service was fast
Mojitos were amazing
Many thanks for joining us and leaving your review, Kaomy. We're glad you enjoyed your experience and deemed us the best restaurant in Miami. We hope to welcome you again soon.
Delicious food, brilliant Cuba libre couldn’t fault the experience
We're glad you enjoyed the food and the Cuba Libre.
Great dining experience!
Great atmosphere in arguably one of the cooler areas. However the cocktails were mediocre at best. Mojitos were average but not what one would i expect from a true Cuban establishment. Plantain chips were good. We ordered appetizers as we were not sure we wanted to stay for entrees. Ordered three of them, yucca fries with truffle oil. They were okay but not truly a wow. The seafood was something you could buy at a grocery store so don’t go there. The croquettes were tasty but again not a true wow. It is not bad but definitely not worth your time. Server was poor but really would not have mattered if the food was better. FYI, be aware there is plenty of folks smoking outside so if you are smoke adverse maybe find a better table.
Your honest comments are appreciated, Jack. We're sorry you felt the experience, in general, was less than great. We hope to have another opportunity to show you a true Havana 1957 experience.
