Our server was so nice, but it seemed like restaurant may have been understaffed... food and drinks took quite a bit of time, all of it was delicious but a little pricey for what it is. Great music but it was very loud. Conversations were yelled.

I am giving 1 star because i can't rate with zero starts.

Desire was our server, while she tried to be nice she didn't deliver.
Food came to our party of 6, one dish at the time, with minutes of different between all 6.
Food lack of flavor. Waffles were cold, qe told Desire and she didn't manifested intetest neither did anything about it.
Our party did not order alcohol and we were unattended, while attention was given to those tables with alcohol consumption ($$$$$$)
We were charged 18 % service, for what we consider poor quality service and food.

Went for the first time and it was amazing. Our server was the best. We sat inside and the live band was so energetic and brought it back to some classics. I had the Cuban fried rice and it was fire! The mango mojito was a great compliment to the meal. My only downside was that they sat us near the door and i had to keep moving so the servers could go outside and in.

The food and drinks were excellent!! Service was good but slow! Had to wait on our drinks more than 20 mins per drink! But... the drinks were on point! Worth the money

Calle 23 is a great little spot. The food was okay. There is limited selection. The ambiance was great. Very Energetic. However, I felt that they were not being to sanitary in the sense that we are still in COVID and their dance floor inside was saturated with people. Also, the bathrooms were not very clean. But I would go again it was a very pleasant place to spend the evening.

This is an amazing restaurant. It has a very fun Miami vibe and the food and service do not disappoint! I love the empanadas and Cuban fried rice but everything I have tried has been delicious. Javier waited on us last and his customer service was impeccable. Everyone is nice. This is not the place to have a quite dinner. The music is great and the sound level is good if you want to have a lively time. Love this restaurant!!!!!

Solo al entrar por la puerta de este lugar, me hizo feliz. La decoración, el ambiente y la música en vivo era un recibimiento que auguraba buenas vibras para celebrar mi cumpleaños y el de dos amigas más. “La noche pinta buena”, pensé.
Comenzamos a disfrutar ordenando una botella de vino Merlot ($35) y unas croquetas de chorizo (las únicas que habían disponibles del menú).
Luego pedimos cada uno algo diferente. De la sección “Medium plate”: Pulpo a la plancha, Cuban fried rice (el que recomiendo entre todos en cuanto a porción, precio y sabor), La frita cubana y Tuna tartare. Y de la sección “Large plate”: Pollo al grill y Calle 23 churrasco.
La comida estaba buena pero nada destacable. Hasta ahí la camarera estaba siendo atenta y el lugar continuaba entre mis favoritos para recomendar. La desilusión vino cuando no nos preguntaron si queríamos algún postre y no hubo ninguna acción alegórica a la celebración de cumpleaños, que estaba especificado en la reservación y confirmado por la anfitriona.
La camarera dijo que nos traería un flancito (literal), pero que la cocina ya estaba cerrada. “A esa hora y con aquel recado” a las 3 cumpleañeras! Éramos 6 personas en total, que estábamos deseando dulce y nos tuvimos que quedar con el antojo, porque si llegó el flan prometido, pero protagonizando a Los Mosqueteros: “uno para todos y todos para uno” (sin una velita siquiera :( No obstante lo pasamos bien y es mi intención dar una segunda oportunidad a este rinconcito del Vedado.

The place is claustrophobic. Very very dark. Tables crammed and ver small. But, the worst? The food is SO OVERLY EXPENSIVE it’s like mocking Cubans. We know what a croqueta cost and it’s not $11; we know what an empanada cost and it’s not $12 etc. ridiculous. Won’t go back there.

Ambiance is great and so was the location. Only issue was the menu. The menu was very limited for brunch, aside from that some of the items were not available. The food was very good though. Looks like they have a broader selection of food for lunch/dinner so I’m sure it would be best for that. Wouldn’t recommend as a brunch spot.

Reserved a table for 7 at 10:00p.m. And entered the restaurant to be seated very far away from it. We were seated in front of the pottery class next door with the live band we came for nowhere
In sight. Service was good and quick, however the food was definitely not worth the price. Nice place for just some drinks but never getting food.

Thé server excellent, but the food not so much. It’s a real shame because it’s not that difficult to make this kind of food and it should be at least warm. It was cold and not good
Octopus cold, tuna tartare very bland, tostones raw inside ...

The pictures and ambiance seemed nice so we reserved. Was seated outside definitely not 6 feet from other diners. Our server brought us the wrong drink and brought out the correct one when we were almost done with our food (we ordered the drink before the food) the food order was wrong, and the food itself was beyond average. Extremely disappointing, really wish I had a better experience.
