The caribeño mojitos and the camarones al ajillo (traditional Spanish shrimps in garlic butter sauce) are the best combo for happy hour.

Very good authentic Cuban food, tastes just like home! Even has arepas and other delicious Hispanic foods. If you’re looking for good Latin-American food in the city, this is the place to go.

They cancelled our reservation so when we got there- no tables until like 5. We ended up eating at the bar area but it was mega crowded and we really only stayed because of the rain.

The hostess that day (Mercy?) was also exceptionally rude which breaks my heart because this WAS my go to lunch spot but never again.

I've been here multiple times and the food and drinks never disappoint. The service left something to be desired though. While our waiter was great, the rest of the service was unorganized. Food that wasn't our arrived on the table, and then someone came and took it away while we figure out what it was. The hostess took forever to seat us even with a reservation and seemed very overwhelmed even though there were very few people there. We were then asked to leave because a large party was coming in.

Did a nice job with a very large group. The pork belly is outstanding., as were the flautas and tapas fiesta platters. The croquettes were underwhelming.

Food was great, but are service was horrible. Waiter rarely came by. Waiter took our order eventually and forgot, we had to get up 40 minutes later for our apps and drinks and had to re-tell our order to another waiter. Never checked on.

It's our 2nd dining experience here. The dining room is brightly decorated with original paintings of Cuban life which really makes it feel a bit like Havana. The menu is also authentically Cuban with a couple of classic Cuban-American dishes. The plates are small for the price, but it's good. Our waiter was attentive. Highly recommend.

The empanada trio was good and so were the mojitos. Grilled chicken sandwich was just alright. The restaurant was too noisy.

Based on Yelp reviews, went with French visitors for dinner close to shopping. Two for one drinks was great - extended past the 8pm cut off..Good look. Dinner took a little wait to come out, we did not order appetizers. Would have been nice to have a bowl of chips and salsa on the table. Overall, staff is friendly and we enjoyed our entrees.

Great food. Service was a bit slow. AC was a major disappointment. Nice looking AC unit, but did nothing but look pretty! We rushed the check and left without dessert because the heat was unbearable. Maybe we'll go back in the Fall/Winter.

Came in for happy hour today to celebrate with my husband and drinks are really good for the value. Especially that they are buy one get one! We ordered a bunch of tapas and they were all really good latin food. Mix of cuban, mexican and colombian in the menu. Glad to have found this spot!

Excellent food and drinks. This is my second visit and the food does not disappoint. I recommend doing tapas so you can try a little of everything. They have a great happy hour for drinks and tapas as well on weekdays.

the cuban food we ordered was very good. i stepped out of probably their wheelhouse and ordered a salad with grilled chicken. first bite of chicken had a weird texture, suspected it was a bit undercooked. they were very gracious to supply me with a second salad, the chicken definitely looked cooked, but it had a very strange texture. i ended up not eating it. did not get sick! but i would've liked them to offer to comp the salad, as clearly none of my chicken was eaten. if i went back, i would stick to fried stuff

The atmosphere at Agozar was very fun and festive. With that said, the food and drinks leave a lot to be desired. The server recommended the vaca frita to me but it was incredibly salty and dry. I had to exchange it with what I was going to order in the first place. The mimosas were extremely weak. Mostly sugary juice with very little & flat champagne.

Though this was a disappointment, my server was very nice, even with me exchanging meals. His gratuity was already built into the pre fixe menu but he was very helpful nonetheless. Perhaps this place is better for dinner.
