Passing through the doors of Cuba Libre in The Quarter at Tropicana Atlantic City transports guests to Havana, Cuba of the 1950s.

The restaurant's brand new wood-burning grill and chef's counter greets guests upon entering, with wood-fired menu items to be enjoyed fireside at the 12-person counter, or from anywhere in the dining room. Guests will experience a true taste of Old Havana with James Beard Award-winning Chef-Partner's menu of classic and contemporary Cuban cuisine. There's something for everyone, ranging from simply-grilled meats and seafood, to Cuban classics like Ropa Vieja, Vaca Frita, Shrimp con Mojo, or the Grilled Vegetable Paella.

The atmosphere offers the unique combination of Latin warmth, flavor and splendor. One-of-a-kind millwork and architectural salvage help capture the essence of old Cuban architecture. Colorful exotic foliage and palm trees add to Cuba Libre's open-air, tropical ambiance.

We were staying the night at the Tropicana hotel in Atlantic city and gave this restaurant a try. We were pleasantly surprised by the menu options and the exotic cocktails. Each of us ordered a tapa or appetizer and were plenty full! Everything tasted fresh and made to order. It was not out of this world good but it was true to its cuisine and allowed for a great evening out with friends! Our server was also very knowledgeable of the menu and attentive to our needs.

Service on slow side, drinks took a long time to come. One entrée was sub-par at best, made comment to the waitress which was quickly dismissed. Won't be going back.

Cubre Libre is our go-to restaurant for a different and tasty meal, especially when with friends where a variety of food choices is important. The entire experience is enjoyable. Not the cheapest place for dinner but not expensive considering what you could pay for a fine dining experience in Atlantic City.

We had a great time here and couldn’t get enough of the passion fruit mojitos. All of the staff was friendly and accommodating to our large group. We tried a bunch of items on the menu and they were all delicious. I especially enjoyed the Ropa Vieja. You should definitely check this place out.

We enjoyed Cuba Libre for our anniversary dinner, the food was great! My husband ordered the chef’s 15 course tasting menu so we tried so much amazing food. Our server was wonderful, very knowledgeable and explained all the foods and sauces to us. Highly recommend.

If I have one good thing to say about this place, I have to give credit to the food. All plates were pleasantly flavorful and true to Cuban roots in seasoning. However, the service, is a different story. My poor service experience began over the phone the day the of reservation. During the confirmation call, I reassured they were aware we were celebrating a birthday as it was also stated in the reservation through open table. I inquired about birthday festivities such as desserts and happy birthday announcements. The hostess quickly spoke over me and with a very hostile tone informed me, “no we’re not going to sing or announce happy birthday because no we just don’t do that”. Though I was offered an alternative, such as choosing a dessert in advance and having it brought out towards the end of the dinner, I believe things should have been worded differently. Act like you care a bit. Fast forward to the actual dinner, our server, Cynthia, seemed more concerned about following a server script instead of actually listening to what we wanted. For a restaurant enduring a slow night with what appeared to be less than 10 tables occupied, you would think there would be a little more engagement or effort to make a more personable experience. In the end, I never received the birthday dessert that was requested in advance. I had to inquire Cynthia about it again, despite it being noted on open table and over the phone. Once again, I was spoken to with a very hostile tone and was asked, “well do you still want it?” She proceeded to retrieve the birthday dessert but was clearly more interested in rushing to get her side work done and close out. The special birthday moment was lost and no apologies were even offered.

I drove two hours into Atlantic City for this event expecting a great special time and left very disappointed.

PRIX- FIX DINNER WAS A GREAT VALUE. A LITTLE MORE ATTENTION BY THE SERVER WOULD HAVE BEEN APPRECIAATED.
