The food was very good and the staff treated us very well.
First time here and I enjoyed myself and the food. It was my boyfriends birthday so I wanted to take him out.
Excellent food, slow service on a very busy President’s Day Weekend.
Lost our reservation, made us wait over an hour. Food was okay but the service and disappointment ruined the entire experience. Manager did not care in the least. She was rude, unprofessional, and could have at least offered an apology. She did not care at all. We spent over $100 on drinks waiting at the bar (there was 5 of us) and clearly wanted a table. We knew there were spots available because we ended up just making a new reservation on open table after 45 minutes and got seated immediately. We should have just done that right away I guess but they assured us they were working on getting us seated. Very awful experience. I will tell people not to go.
We had blast. Our server was good and friendly, i have invited people and am coming back.
I had a great lunch here, but for dinner it is noisy, crowded, with aggressive waiters and high prices that are not justified by the quality of the food. You can do much better elsewhere in Penn Quarter.
It was amazing! Food was great! Very attentive wait staff!!
Cuba Libre's 3-course Rapido Lunch option is an underrated winner for fast, affordable, and delicious lunchtime eats.
Went for lunch with my husband and had their 3-course lunch deals plus the pineapple guacamole. Good food and just the right amount. Hope to come back and try the rest of their menu.
Excellent environment and great touch for Valentines (give the women red roses).
Food was excellent and the music was outstanding. Definitely want to make it a regular spot to visit.
Celebrated my birthday here which is also Valentine’s Day! Great food and ambiance. Will come back!
This time we were anxious to try the added Crispy Pork Shank and was it every worth the effort! Simply delicious from start to finish (although the shank was big enough for at least 4 people instead of just us two). Tapas was great, blistered peppers and Malanga fritters, and I've never had a tastier or more refreshing white wine sangria than the two half pitchers we ended up ordering to accompany another extremely delicious dinner among good friends. Wait staff and service was outstanding as usual, with lots of care about making a fun and tasty dining experience. This happens every time for us and is always appreciated!
I went to Cuba Libre with a friend; the wait was very brief, and the wait staff was fantastic. The bartender was a little slow and honestly not that busy for the wait, but it wasn't terrible. The food (shrimp something...) was good, but a tad pricey, again not really out of line. The dancing was fun!! I'd go back.
Great Latin food and lovely ambiance. Try the No-jito for a great alcohol free drink.
I took a quick trip to DC to get away & celebrate my 39th birthday. Cuba Libre was a cool spot for me & my 7 guests. We had a table in the back room which suited us. The food & grilled pineapple mojitos were on point! The staff were friendly. It was restaurant week so they had great specials to select. Everyone enjoyed their food. Our reservation was for 9 PM so my appetite was small. I got the De la Casa Empanadas that were bursting with flavor & a side of Arroz Con Frijoles. They had Latin music if you wanted to stay to dance. We found parking across the street in a secure garage for $10. I would definitely go back!
