Cuban Roasted Pork
Slow roasted pernil topped with mojo and caramelized onions, served with traditional Cuban congri, plantains, and crispy yucca
Jalapeno Honey Pork Chops
Two, eight-ounce grilled pork chops glazed in honey jalapeno soy sauce, served with sweet potato and steamed broccoli
A tart twist to the classic Mojito! Fresh mint, lime, sugar, and guava flavored Cruzan Rum. Shaken and poured over ice with a splash of soda
The food and drinks were very good, as usual. I would have felt better if the staff was wearing gloves in light of corona virus.
Love this place! Food was excellent again and will continue to make Havana my go to dinner spot.
More Mexican food than Cuban, and not special. Portions are large. Server was very nice.
Overall great experience. Food was amazing and the customer service was fantastic.
We always enjoy getting back to Havana for the delicious Cuban specialties and mojitos.
Atmosphere was awesome . Food was AMAZING!!!!! I’ve been recommending this place since we dined there on 8/15 . Great experience.
Excellent food and service. I had the Cuban Sandwich, husband enjoyed the classic enchiladas. Highly recommend the mojito (coconut) and the margarita. Also had the chocolate dessert. Great intimate surroundings, super food, overall wonderful meal.
Very cool tiny place with really good food! Awesome drinks!
Very nice place, good food. Kind of loud, though. I am not sure why the music has to be that loud at lunchtime.
Calimari was rubbery and smelled fishy. Chips and salsa were great.
Food and drinks were great! Waitress was friendly.
Good food, nice presentation. Made a reservation and they were ready for us. Took server a while to get to us. She was a fine server but not very warm, used very few words. Cozy place that can make accommodations for groups too.
Great break in the middle of a cold Chicago evening- good mojitos, even better food.
My wife and I stopped in for dinner last night. We sat at the bar and had a cocktail before we were seated. The bartender, who also was our server was wonderful. The cocktails we had were bright and flavorful, We tried the Guayabera, the Platino Havana, Don Julio Blanco mojito and a Grand Margarita. For entrees, we had Carne Con Tequila and the Cuban Roasted Pork. Both dishes were incredible!!!! We had stopped in for drinks a couple of times before, this was our first dining experience there. We could not have been happier!! The service, drinks, and food are exceptional. They are also very fairly priced for the area. If you are in the area, do yourself the favor of dining here. We can not wait to return.
Great food and atmosphere. I would definitely be back.
Fantastic. Must stop here when I come to Chicago. Can’t go wrong with anything on the menu.
Omg the food!!! So amazing and the drinks were fantastic as well. Love the ambience and the prices didn't break the bank either. My boyfriend and I had 2 apps, soup, 2 entrees and 5 drinks for under 140. Everything about this meal was amazing.
There was one waiter servicing 13 people and he was amazing. He was efficient, not overwhelmed and no one was unattended even though he was the only one working at the time. Great service, drinks and food
It was a truly enjoyable time at Havana
Service, food and overall experience was fantastic
Very casual place for Cuban food. Excellent service, great drinks. Food was Ok
Cuban nirvana. Wonderful food with rich authentic flavors. Spot on service. We didn't want to leave.
Amazing food, great service. A fantastic spot to go with friends or after work. Also, the drinks are ridiculously good so do yourself a favor and take the train/bus there so you can go all out.
Chips and guac, and morita salsa was a must. The Pollo Horneado con Platano was the best entree hands down.
Truly authentic Cuban food. My favorite is called "ropa vieja" (literally old clothes, but don't let that scare you off). It is the same food that makes up the Venezuelan "pabellon criollo" as well; probably has a comparable dish throughout Latin America. This time we also tried the "vaca frita" (literally, fried cow) - the beef was fried and served with a beans/rice mix (that's what "congri" is). I love the cooked plantains and even my husband - who does not like bananas - agreed they were good. We also tried the soups. I thought the black bean was excellent. The tortilla soup was a bit spicy so depends on what you like.
This restaurant has a fun, energetic vibe; it's not the quiet romantic date kind of place, but still good for a date if you want to have Cuban food. They also can accommodate groups.
The place is very basic, but the food was DELICIOUS!!!! The skirt steak was flavorful and tender. The fish tacos were tasty as well. The mojito was decent. Turns into a clubby atmosphere after 11.I am definitely coming back to eat!
The food was absolutely outstanding, service very good, noise was terrible.
Good food and service! Authentic as you can get in the loop.
The food was very good. Havana does not disappoint.
Wait staff was excellent. Food was piping hot and prepared fast.
The food was all very good. Started with empanadas and crab cakes. There were 4 of us and we all ordered different things then shared. Everyone liked everything. The plantain crusted halibut was the most unique.
All agreed they would go back again.
The only warning I have is the booths are a little narrow. We’re not big people and it felt a bit tight side by side
Excellent menu, great lunch specials, preparation and presentation were great
Everitime my wife and I are in Chicago, we need dinner at Havana. So
My partner and I thought that to start celebrating our anniversary week we should try a new restaurant. I’m Colombian and he thought that I’d like to have some Cuban food since is the closest we could find nearby. HE WAS RIGHT! And Havana was the best choice! We had an amazing night. The food was great, drinks were great (there was so many different drinks to try so we had several), service was phenomenal and the place is fantastic. We will definitely be back soon.
We decided to have our thanksgiving dinner here. The experience was sensational; service was attentive, the meal was exquisite as expected, and the ambiance was warm. Overall we would recommend this as a family restaurant or and night out with a date.
Second time here and I love it. The food is great. ceviche is fresh and the plates are good sized.
Visiting Chicago for the weekend. Delicious food. I would definitely come back. We got a bunch of things and shared everything
SO delicious! Food was timed out perfectly and the pitcher of margarita was so delicious and such good value. Took my parents here and it was so refreshing compared to a boring steakhouse :) Will definitely be back, we loved it!
