First time at this location but we frequently visit their DC location. Always amazing food and solid, friendly service. Definitely recommend the pineapple guacamole and coconut mojito. Every entree we’ve had has been amazing but my personal favorite us the Peking chicken. Everything including the interior of this place takes you right to Havana. Amazing.

The food, atmosphere and service are exceptional. I had a flank steak entree and it was a little tough, but the flavor was good. My sangria was excellent. The portion size on the appetizers was a bit small for the price. I wish I had ordered the paella; it looked really good. I had appetizers, drinks, entree and dessert and I left still a bit hungry. I would definitely go back. I just wish the portion sizes were a little larger. The music was a bit loud and I had to shout over it to talk to the people at my table.

Service was awful! Waiter forgot to place the order for our daughter’s dinner. We asked three times where her dinner was and still no dinner. Finally stopped a manager and after another almost 45 minutes got her dinner. Food is amazing, service is atrocious.

This was everything I hoped it would be. Great atmosphere and even better food. We had a party of 8 and tried a lot of different starters and entrees together. Everything was excellent. I haven't had paella this good since I lived in Spain.

Arrived slightly opening and was sat immediately. Welcomes by friendly staff. Server was very attentive, gave us first time visitors a tour of the menu, and was nice. Food was amazing, worth the price, and I’ll definitely be back.

My guest and I were greeted and seated at 5:pm by a very friendly hostess.
We came to Cuba Libre to celebrate my B’day. The server Richelle made our night very pleasant, always attentive and the timing of her service was excellent.

Our food taste was superb.! I had the Pardo Frito and my guest had the Pez Cabía. Our server recommended the appetizer Ceviche Mixto. It was a great choice.

About the interior of the restaurant, you need to go to experience it by yourself, it is amazing.!

Over priced food and drinks. The Mojitos appeared watered down and the $31 Churrasco steak was overcooked and tough as shoe leather, and only accompanied by some water cress. The Ceviche appetizer was good, but pricey at $17. The Paella serving seemed more like a starter than an Entre. All in all, expensive and not great quality, even by the low I-Drive standards.

The interior design was like being in Havana. Our server was good, attentive and helpful. We were celebrating a birthday. They bring out a dessert tray of with a sparkler. The dinner was tasty, but the portion for the price was not a value.
