Havana was a great place to have a date while we were on vacation. It was very upscale but also relaxed. The service was excellent and the food was delicious!!

We were sat by the piano and it was way to loud to hold. Primal conversations. We would have to wait 15 mins at a time for water refills. Besides that, the ambiance is incredible and the food is fantastic.

Horrible horrible service. Had reservations and they say they “text” you when your table is ready. Well they obviously forgot bc 30 mins later when we checked they said they sent one (my butt they did). Drinks at rooftop were horrible and took FOREVER!! Food me-ogre. Pretty views and fun company but over priced for what you get. Save your money.

Extremely overpriced. Best example is that we got a side of snap peas for our daughter and it was $12, more than her entire kids meal. And they came out very late, after everyone had gotten their food.

Nice service. They accommodated a time change in our reservation and seating requests.

This was a poor experience! It took us over 2.5 hours to eat at this evening. We had a drink at the bar and then the waiter told us that we couldn’t have that drink at the table. Comp the dessert and then the coffee was cold.

Excited to try this recommended place however the experience was a total letdown. Heavy rains came just as we sat upstairs so we made reservations for the downstairs restaurant. We were sat in back room at a two top table with Summer as our waiter. Took well over an hour to receive our lamb and filet dinners, both ordered medium, and both were under cooked. Since we were starving we ate what we could. Summer's friendly and apologetic attitude were appreciated, but kitchen needs to be able to put out tickets faster than 60-75 minute ticket times.

Disappointing experience. Very slow service even though not busy. Ordered the recommended BLT Big sandwich but what a surprise, only one piece of bacon. All bread, lettuce some tomato and one piece of bacon. Very Disappointed will not go back.

We told the restaurant at the time of booking the reservations that my husband has a shellfish allergy. After being seated and ordering we confirmed again the food allergy with the waiter. Then one of the waiters assistance precedes to deliver a free individual appetizer to each of us at the table. I asked then if there was shellfish in it just to be sure and he said no it was some kind of salad. For some reason I said wait and let me see so I tasted it and sure enough it had shrimp in it. We told the waiter and he was very apologetic but we explained how tragic it would have been if my husband had eaten it. That was an unacceptable mistake. We were very upset and troubled by the mistake. No measure was taken by the management to make good on this major blunder.

Food was just ok and should be outstanding for the price. I’ve had better lamb chops 100’s of times that was much better - they auctioned off our food - should know who ordered what for that kind of price. They stacked plates on the table - I could go on and on. It was like kids newly hired for the high season. Happy to share more. John 619-577-2120

What a wonderful experience at Havana Beach this past Saturday night! We arranged to sit on the veranda on a perfect May evening, which allowed us to catch the open air and some sounds from Rosemary, but we were high enough off street level to prevent any gawking by either us or others. Kyle, our server, what fantastic: knowledgable, personable, efficient and timely. The best we've encountered in Rosemary, which is a high bar. This was our second experience, the first being a late night drink in the bar sofa area last October, which was very nice as well. Look forward to coming back!

Food was great, and accommodating when I sent back my dish because I felt like my scallops weren’t to temperature. Once they came back they were delicious! The services was a little slow but I think there was a private event on the rooftop that may have been an influencer in that.

The waitress appeared upset we were getting appetizers and drinks only - even though it was 9:30 at night. Cheese plate was not explained. Was not a good experience overall, but we would try it again. Maybe it was an off night.

Service was horrible. We waited 45 min just for water. Had to ask 2 times just to get bread because we were so hungry. The gentleman who cleans the tables end up getting our bread. Summer our server was horrible!! Very very disappointed with the service this year. We come here a lot and will be going elsewhere from now on!

So we eat out probably too much but per my wife would put Havana Beach in our top 10. It has a very nice atmosphere, loud to the point of boisterous but cozy enough to have a conversation with the table. Service was attentive and quick but not hovering . The food was well prepared, fresh and timed appropriately. We did 2 starters which came in the appropriate succession followed by the main course. Cocktails and wine were handled accordingly. 2 starters, 4 cocktails, 2 of their higher-end($) entrees and one, shared dessert plus a well deserved gratuity was $225. High by any standard for 2 people but given the vacation spot and access to local, farm fresh ingredients, worth the drive or in our case the Uber. I believe our server was Dennis but with one "n". He was great, thoroughly enjoyed and will likely be back. Thank You!
