Everything was absolutely amazing, we go there every time we are in Miami. I just put value lower cause we believe all food in Miami is way over priced!

Was very disappointed that the media noche wasn’t served any longer, I really was looking forward to the soft egg roll as the Cuban Bread is a too hard for me. That said, everything was pretty good, just not as satisfying for me in that way. Realistically, how demanding can you really be in these COVID times, it makes sense having to simplify the menu to cut costs n such. 4 stars, would definitely recommend!

If you are ever visiting Miami you need to go to Havana 1957. The service was outstanding and the food was delicious!! Make sure you ask for prices before ordering if you care about how much you are spending. But a spectacular place to visit. We will go back again.

Horrible experience the server was very nasty and tried to over charge us for drinks...he then proceeded to get nasty and yell in his native tongue when asked to speak to his manager. He threw our receipt & bill on the table...the manger was nasty as well. I would never come back to this location.

The service was excellent and the food was absolutely amazing. This was our first time trying cuban food and it did not disappoint! I had a half white sangria pitcher all to myself, it came in a HUGE mason jar. We definitely want to go again before we leave Miami.

I enjoy the food and outdoor seating at this place. The mojitos aren't bad either - huge fan of the variety. It isn't the cheapest place to eat but Miami Beach is pricey.

For a chain restaurant the food was surprisingly good and service was great. Only improvement could have been the drinks. The mojitos were disappointing. They tasted watered down and not made fresh. Even my friends from North Carolina weren’t fans. Other than that it was a good experience and value.

This was a great experience from top to bottom. Our Cuban bartender suggested we go to this, the original Havana 1957, as the original is the best. We've been to the Ocean Drive spot in years past and it is also good, but not AS good. The signature chicken dish is absolutely unbelievable. How do they put so much flavor into that tender, juicy chicken? It's a must eat. Highly recommend this spot.
