Quantities of Havana Night special were extremely small, overpriced in my opinion. The dance lessons were great for beginners and will draw you closer to your partner! (Not that partners are needed!)
Great job to instructor for making a memorable night of dancing.

Attended free Wednesday evening salsa and bachata lessons. SO MUCH FUN! The instructor was excellent. We were dancing from 7:30-8:45pm and I was able to sneak back to my nearby table to sip on my (really good) sangria. Ordered the chips and salsa and enjoyed it. Sampled a friend's ceviche sampler and also thought that was very good. I will definitely be back.

I was early and they seated us right away. Waiter was excellent, food was ok. But when it turned into a dance club the rudeness started, wasnt completely done with meal and drinks and they were removing tables to open the small dance floor. Floor was over crowded and no real room to dance. Everyone was shoulder to shoulder. Dance was not a good experience

I can't wait to visit this place again. While the portions are moderate, it definitely does not miss on flavor. I prefer my sangria a little sweeter but the corn con queso and the Peruvian skirt steak with potatoes, and their extensive cocktail menu is definitely worth another visit. Our party was over a half- hour late for our reservations, they still sat us and the kitchen doesn't close until 12. They also turn into a night club at 11 pm, so it makes the perfect combination for night life dining and eating. They also have excellent quick service.

I was there on a Thursday with girlfriends for a birthday. The place was dead, there was no ambiance. We had a drink and an appetizer and left. We kept looking at the menu and nothing there was tempting. I like to look at a menu and have a hard time deciding what to order because there are a few items that I would like to choose from...Making me want to come back. The drinks were really good and fresh. We had the ceviche sampler that was good. The service we received in that short amount of time was great. This place might be happening on their salsa night or DJ night. We had to leave, we wanted to an up beat ambiance and with people in the restaurant so, I called RPM Steak and secured a reservation!

The steaks we had were tasty, but the gazpacho was nothing special. The Chimichurri sauce was much too oily altho the mole was very good. We had a nice Chilean red wine, but it was served in very small white wine glasses- a major no-no for red wine aficionados! I felt like we were at a "has been" kind of restaurant. LEYE can and should do better. We liked our server but there's really no reason to return here.

It's was a special occasion the food was amazing and the Mojitos were the best. This was our first time and we will be coming back, amazing food, great value and the best music. I don't think I will ever have a mojito anywhere else on this planet, unless I'm in Cuba 🤷🏾‍♂️.

This dining experience exceeded my expectations. We started with guacamole and the ceviche sampler. I enjoyed the watermelon tuna vinegrette ceviche most. We then ordered the chimichurri steak with Latin vegetables. The flavors were impeccable. The food was fresh and presented well. I made a reservation online and we were given seating on the upper level to ourselves. This was special as it was my swk and significant other. Later in the evening there were complementary salsa lessons which was entertaining to watch. Loved the atmosphere and ambiance.

Excellent service by our waiter Alex. He really went the extra mile to make sure we had a good experience. Salsa lessons on Wednesday looked like fun though we didn't participate. Wish we had known we were going to be so close to the action - would have taken table a bit farther away. Our food was very good with leftovers (corn fumdido was to die for).

I was really annoyed to arrive at the restaurant and see a sign on the door that the restaurant was closed that evening for a private party. Then why did they accept the reservation? I rated every aspect "poor" although if I had eaten there, it might have been better.

First time visiting this place and we loved it! My husband and I shared almost everything and we had a blast. We couldn't stay for dancing that night as we had a concert to attend (which was a godsend for those who did stay). :). Definitely coming back!!! Go, eat, drink, dance and live it up!!

You use to be able to count on this restaurant for great food and ambiance.
Now, neither apply. The Food was mediocre at best - even though the
waiter tried. The clientelle use to be classy - now it's so far from that, it
was awful - overall extremely disappointing.

Service was slow and it was not packed. Waited a really long time for the check. Food quality was fair. Unfortunately not as flavorful as I would have expected, skirt steak and costa rican potatoes were VERY bland. Portion sizes are small considering the price point...especially for the parallida option, definitely not enough for two people as noted on the menu.

I was not impressed by the food but the service is horrible and the managers and employees were rude. After we consumed almost $400 they came and clean our table and took 1/4 of our $60 pitcher of sangria and kicked us out. We were going to order a service (a whole bottle of tequila) and they did not wanted to give us the service with the sodas we wanted

Took my team to dinner. I heard a number of great things about this restaurant. Unfortunately they didn't have a table that comfortably seats 8. Instead we were relegated to a circular booth and had chairs placed around the front. The service was incredibly slow. From the time we arrived to the time we paid the bill was 3 hours and 15 minutes. They also conducted a dance class in the middle of dining area. We didn't realize they conducted classes during dinner. It was difficult to carry on a conversation with the lessons going on in the background.

It was seriously understaffed. Our waiter was great but he was hardly around. A gentleman wearing jeans or out of uniform was the one clearing out our plates and bringing water which made the experience not so special. I used to come here very often but this time it felt like I was visiting a 2 star local restaurant. The music was great so maybe next time I'll just for the dancing.

Our experience overall was memorable. The food and the music was great, the ceviche was amazing!! The mojitos alone are worth coming back for. The service we received was flawless. We will be back again.

My husband and I came for a Saturday date night. We had a late reservation so we didn't eat an actual meal, just drinks and appetizers. The drinks were great! I had a watermelon mojito and the hubby had a regular mojito. I also had a Roca Rosa, which was fantastic. The service was exceptional. I loved that they leave a bottle full of water on the table because I drink water nonstop! Definitely a plus that I didn't have to wait for water refills! Small details. We stayed for the DJ which started promptly at 11. Overall we had a perfect evening at Nacional 27. So glad we finally checked it out.
