Amazing! This is my go to place when I go to Atlantic City.
Birthday dinner with the wife. The food wasn’t that good. Very disappointed. The drinks were “ok”
Food was great and restaurant space gave a nice vibe but the the people next to us weren’t happy with their service which we did witness and that give us a guarded view to the way were were serviced but for the most part we had a good experience.
Great service, Friendly staff, Lovely ambiance, We would certainly visit again
Food was very good. We had to wait to be served maybe because it was a very busy weekend
Everything we ordered was amazing!!! The Cuban spring rolls were probably our favorite. Our server was outstanding and absolutely added the the overall experience. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant and look forward to going there again!
Romantic Birthday dinner. Everything was delicious.
Great food! Would come again.
The ropa vieja with a side of avocado was absolutely AMAZING.
Wonderful food and service! We had a great time and making a reservation on open table was easy!
It was awesome!!!!! Thanks for making our night wonderful, hostess was awesome.
Excellent meal as usual. Friendly, efficient service, ambiance very nice -- decor is old Havana -- ceiling fans, dark woods, wrought iron lighting fixtures, Cuban music in the background, lighting is low to help with atmosphere.
Extensive menu and drinks list with a number of specialty cocktails. We began with a classic mojito and coconut mojito -- both very well made and very good.
For dinner I had "Visit to Havana" which is the pressed Cuban sandwich made with sour orange marinated pork loin, Genoa salami, ham, provolone, and Swiss cheese and yellow mustard pickle relish. The sandwich is huge and delicious. Accompaniments are: a cup of black bean soup, house salad, and tropical chips which are plantains.
All of it was nicely prepared and presented and everything was very good.
Husband had Shrimp Con Mojo which is ten pan-seared citrus marinated jumbo shrimp accompanied by onions, peppers, sliced garlic, crisped yuca, white rice with cilantro-lime mojo sauce. Also exellent.
Dessert was a Cuban flan -- traditional vanilla custard with candied mango and papaya on top and a vanilla cookie on the side.
Coffee -- one Americano and one Cuban coffee with steamed coconut milk which is a dessert in itself because it is so good and sweet.
The restaurant offers beef, pork, chicken, and seafood dishes -- all beautifully prepared. Have eaten here many times and it is consistently a great meal with very good service in a nice atmosphere.
It was the middle of the week so it was quiet. I always enjoy Cuba Libre. Food was delicious. Sangria was also very tasty. Tres leches cake was yummy. Ambiance and service always pleasant.
I went here to celebrate my husband’s birthday. The waiter was knowledgeable and recommended drinks and food. The food and drinks were great. I would recommend this restaurant
Great spot for a girls night. Good food, drinks, music. The first floor opens up to become a dance floor around 11pm. Great dj, fun crowd!
Birthday get together with family and friends.
Another amazing meal at Cuba Libre. The Vaca Frita was bursting with flavor and the empanadas were delicious. As always, the staff was friendly and quick with seating and service. Highly recommend it if you haven’t been here before!
Meal was excellent but the mohito was horrible ! Otherwise We had a great time!
LOVE Cuba Libre! Great flavors, great ambiance. The Churrasco was positively delish!
I thought that overall the food and atmosphere was excellent. When we first got there, there were people running around filling up your water and taking care of your table. The longer that we stayed, the less frequent these people were. Overall, it was a great time.
The service and food was really good. I will be back!
Our waiter was fantastic and food was amazing, as always.
First time eating at Cuba Libre. Aside from the cold hostess greeting and then being ushered upstairs, away from the more fun, themed part of the restaurant, we were very pleased. The food and drinks were delicious and our waitress was pleasant, helpful and attentive. Knowing what I do now, the next visit, I will insist on being seated downstairs where a winter coat is not needed and the more immersive experience can be had. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a unique dining experience with delicious cuban cuisine.
The food was very good. The portions were a bit small for the price but overall it was very tasty.
Very good meal and attentive staff.
Really love the food, drinks, service and ambiance.
Felt like s mini vacation - will come back with friends.
Great food and service
Amazing service and unbeatable food. Truly amazed. Thank you!
Service was horrendous!
3rd visit most likely wouldn't return
Yummy!!!! Wen ordered the paella and the Cobia both were delicious! The staff were all very accommodating to us with our seven month old girl and the restaurant had a fun atmosphere!! the restaurant was decorated with an outdoor cuban feel, very open and airy and made us feel happy! the decor also kept our little ones eyes busy. very fun and delicious dining experience. ohhh and the butter, the cinnamon mango butter was delighful!!!!
