Drinks were good; food was sub-standard for the money.

The place was pretty quiet at 6:30 on a Friday, but filled up quick. Great server, my wife ordered the crab stuffed flounder and I had the strip steak...both AWESOME!

I mentioned to our server that I was looking forward to coming to Havana Cabana. No response. We were the only people in the dining area and were seated right next to AC and I said I was cold. No response. We moved outside. We ordered our food and she repeated what we ordered except one item so I told her as she was walking away and again. No response. The salads were basic, no presentation, mango pieces were MUSHY, pineapple was anemic and greens not crunchy. I am astonished that the Chef would allow them to a table. Rice and beans were flavorless. Tostones were fried too long. I am Hispanic so I know how they should be cooked. I was SO disappointed and it was my birthday. We didn't say anything at the time because I wanted to have a nice dinner but if I was able to do it again, I would have returned everything we ordered. I don't take any pleasure to have to write such a terrible review but the only way to get better is to know. I own a business and as much as it hurts to see such reviews it can only be a benefit in the long run to know the honest truth.

Excellent good, drinks, and service! Would highly recommend. The variety of drinks, all with a tropical twist, are worth going nonetheless.

Nice ambiance. The wait staff made us feel welcome and was very attentive. Prices were ok. The accommodating wait staff definitely made it a much more enjoyable dinning experience. A great place to take a first date.

Very DisDisappointed! Took over an hour to get our food. 45 mins in I was told what I ordered, they were out of. They did give us complimentary shots because our food was taking so long. My biggest gripe was that our meals were so different from what was stated on the menu. My husband ordered a fillet (medium) wrapped in applewood bacon with a blue cheese mash what he got was a well done fillet with bacon bits and reg mash with butter no blue cheese and dont know what happened to the fig reduction.

This was our second time at Havana Cabana. We love the food, ambiance, and service. We ordered the Crab stuffed avocado with plantains appetizer - it was amazing! Love this place

They were out of many things on the menu all of which they could have gone to the supermarket and picked up to serve. Would expect them to be out of business in the not so distance future if they do not shape up the dining experience
