Havana Social Ratings and Reviews
Came here on a Saturday night after reading all of the good reviews on Yelp and OpenTable and decided to give it a go. Food was delicious and service was pretty good. Drinks were strong and reasonably priced. Very cozy and intimate setting with good music. I would certainly come back in the future.
I don’t usually do this, but let's start with the problems. Havana Social is small. The space is utilitarian, not hip and cool but warm and friendly. So if the aesthetic is more or as important to you as the food, then you won’t be happy here. If, however, food is what you are after- really good Cuban food, then you’ve come to right spot. Having had the good fortune to travel to Cuba, I would say that this food is aspirational for Cuba.
A party of six of us went for brunch this weekend, and it was one of the best brunches I’ve had in my life. I had the Colombia Plate for breakfast. Before my brunch even arrived, a complimentary chips and guacamole appeared. I was able to score two chips, and a bit of guacamole before the whole plate was devoured to purrs of “this is the best guacamole I’ve ever had. After the guacamole disappeared, two perfectly poached eggs sat atop smoked salmon (there was also slow roasted pork, but I had it removed as I don’t eat anything with four legs- long story), some greens and a thin slice of tomato. Perfectly cooked beans and fluffy rice arrived on a separate plate. Juevos Rancheros were presented beautiful and loaded with avocado. The food was just excellent.
Now, the food is muy excellente and the staff (Grace, this means you) are just so lovely. We were celebrating a special occasion, and Grace called me to have a photo of the celebrator’s face put on the menu along with a personal note to him. The honoree was so happily surprised and, well, honored. Grace had all of us sign the menu and laminated that menu as a keepsake. Wait, I’m going to keep going. Along with this beautiful laminated menu, Grace included a coupon for 20.00 for the next visit (which, trust me, will be used). Finally, at the end of the meal, a special dessert with a sparkler was presented to the table. I have never experienced such heartfelt and kind touches pushing Havana Social way to the top of my list of favorites.
Food was great. It wasn’t very busy as we were going before the Rangers game at MSG. But that being said and not many people being there... it was hard to get someone’s attention to grab the bill.
But it was fantastic! Highly recommend. And get the tasting platter where you choose your own items. So great. Chips and guacamole were on point. And the paella was fabulous!
Food and service were both great! We were in town for business and one of my colleagues felt like eating cuban food, so we looked this place up. After reading all of the rave reviews, we decided to give it a try. Service went above and beyond to make sure we were well taken care of and the food was excellent. We will be back.
Really fun birthday dinner! They put your picture on a menu and give you shots and tiny cakes on the house. Really friendly and accommodating staff. Food was way expensive, everyone in my group just ordered tapas and drinks. The prix fix menu was $36, $45 with dessert.
Service was slow. Food was exceptionally slow. We waited long enough for the 2nd round of tapas that we finally asked for it to be wrapped up when it was ready because we didn't want to stay there any longer. And then they charged a 20% tip on a party of 4 people with that kind of service? I would have been okay with the slowness but the tip on a party of 4 was too much. Would not go again.
This was my 4th time here, and it has continued to go a little downhill each time. Drinks service is amazingly slow - over 1/2 hour to get our cocktails (table of 3). The chips that came with the guacamole were homemade, but burnt and oily - indicating that the fry oil was not hot enough & they were left in too long. The A/C was blowing really hard right on top of us, and when it cycled down & started back up periodically, you could tell the A/C system was mildewey from the dank smell. The pork chop was well cooked & tasted good, but the ropa vieja and fish were only so-so - and the good parts of the meal weren't enough to make up for the bad parts. Worst of all was what I assume is poor kitchen ventilation - I left the restaurant reeking of fry oil that smells like it's been used too long. I doubt that I'll return when there are a few other Cuban restaurants in HK where I've not encountered these problems.
