Havana Ratings and Reviews
Imaginative fare, warm and unpretentious atmosphere, reasonable prices, great service. We’ve been there many times because it’s a good location, and we usually go earlier in the evening before it gets too busy. Love the chiles rellenos—not deep fried, and filled with minutely diced veggies. A good vegetarian option, I think.
My wife and I were downtown for our anniversary and came here. She had the chicken wrapped in banana leaf and I had the glazed pork chops. Both entrees were excellent as were the whipped sweet potatoes, the plantains, and the passion fruit mojito. The service was excellent and we both had a wonderful time. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
We wanted to go to this place because it seemed to have some Hispanic authenticity. It was very Cuban and very good. We went for dinner and it was about 6 degrees outside so it was not very crowded. It did not matter. The service was great and the food was fresh and excellant. We tried the chimichangas, the enchiladas and pollo coco limon along with mojitos to drink. Everything was great and we were especially please with the quality of the mojitos. All in all we were very pleased, given we travelled all the way from Columbus Ohio with this being one of the main things we were coming to Chicago to try. I would highly recommend it to anyone who likes hispanic food or if you are just willing to try something that will be very fine quality.
Wonderful space and wonderful food! Bathrooms are down a set of stairs and can be tricky if you're in heels, not for individuals who need wheelchair accesible spaces unless there was another area I wasn't aware of. Otherwise fantastic. Would definitely go again.
Been here many time just not for dinner. I had a birthday celebration so I decided to try it. Dinner was good. Several of us had the grilled chicken which was good, but I felt like it lacked a bit of flavor. I guess its not what I was expecting. Overall the service was excellent and they were accommodating. Music starts around 11 PM and they have a live band and a DJ. Music is great for dancing even though the space is not that big, but every time I have been here it was a blast.
Went there for business dinner. The four of us ordered a pitcher of a Brazilian cocktail, amazing especially since it was the special of the week. Then proceeded to order some very authentic Cuban food. Everyone was full and happy couldn't have asked for a better meal
Our meal was excellent!! The ingredients were very fresh. The items were unique. The drinks were unique and very good. We loved every part of our meal at Havana. We were there on a date but there were families there as well. There were plenty of options on the menu for everyone. We visit Chicago about once a year and we will definitely dine at Havana again.
I has the Apricot Chipotle Pork Chops, two, eight-ounce grilled pork chops marinated in apricot-chipotle sauce, served with jalapeno and potato hash and roasted seasonal vegetables. Was exceptionally delicious. Great food, great service, I highly recommend you enjoy some of their Cuban delights.
Had a great time and the Cuban food is excellent; had the traditional Cuban sandwich, plantains, Guava cheesecake, Ropa Vieja and the Mojito pitcher special. Everything was awesome. Only issue was it's a bit loud if you're trying to have a nice, quiet conversation with a date, for business, etc. It was a Friday night though. Other than that it was perfect.
I highly recommend Havana to anyone visiting Chicago. We have been there multiple times and it is always top notch. The food is spectacular, the service is great and the staff is super friendly. A must do! We enjoyed the Carne Asada and Paella this time as well as some tostones and ceviche for apps. Havana has the best ceviche ever!
