Excellent food and the coconut mojito was one of the best I’ve had.

For some reason, our table seemed to be higher than the rest which make it difficult to drink our drink. We had to take it away from the table. The tostones appetizer had good sauces, but had no flavor without the sauce. The entree we each had was good (chicken and pork).

Very authentic and good Cuban food. I had the tequila steak, and rum flan and a mango monitor. Nothing special about the feel/ambiance of the restaurant though.

We normally love this place and make sure we get here when we’re in Chicago, but this time it was extremely LOUD. I seriously couldn’t hear across the table. We could not have a conversation. Also, the food wasn’t as good as it usually is. The poblano cream sauce usually has such a great flavor. This time, meh. We’ll probably skip it next time we’re in town. The wait staff is awesome, though.

We had multiple people approach the table so we were unsure of who our server was. The service was lacking. I should never have to flag a server to ask for a drink. I know this because I’m a server. The food was excellent, but I won’t be returning. The service adds to the experience and well, it was sorely lacking.

We had reservations on St Pat's day, arrived a little early, but were seated right away. Margaritas are great, along with the black bean soup, guacamole and chips. My entree was the Pollo a la Cubano. The dinner was very good and the service was quite good considering the size off the crowd. We will be back again.

This is my fifth time at Havana and each and every time I have been really satisfied witn the consistency in their quality and service. After 11:00 pm their live music kicks in on the weekends and it’s worth sticking around!

I thought the food here was really great! I ordered the roasted pork and it was delicious! They also have great mojitos, my favorite is the guava mojito. The ambience is great! Great for dinner on a date or with friends.

Food and service were terrific, as were the Mohitos, but it was incredibly crowded and noisy. The 20s crowd didn’t seem to mind but it was a bit much for us.

This is my favorite restaurant in all of Chicago. Everything is authentic and delicious. The only meals I would stay away from are the more traditional offerings - taco salad, enchiladas. Try something new, you can't go wrong!

All the food has been exceptional! Love the pitchers of Mojitos. They were accommodating as we were running a little behind, even on a Friday evening. Service was very attentive and quick and our friends always ask us to come here when in town. A little on the loud side so don't expect quiet conversations. My favorites are the Empanadas, Jalea de Mariscos and Havana Roasted Pulled Pork.
