For years, Cuba Restaurant has been capturing the spirit of Old Havana with authentic
cuisine, strong signature mojitos, and the team behind Cuba, including Executive Chef Mario Garcia. As a result, Cuba restaurant is like a family, their loyalty and satisfaction directly translating to the guest experience, creating
an atmosphere of fun, friendliness and all-around Cuban hospitality that is unparalleled. Americans have fallen in love with Latin food, music, and culture. Cuba has them all under one roof, offering a singular and charming escape to its own Little Havana on Thompson Street.

Outdoor set up is awesome, you have your own little room to enjoy your time! Food was amazing but service was very very slow. They had a big party so they were busy accommodating them which is fine, but an hour for food seems a bit long. The salmon and coconut rice was worth the wait though!

The Cuban shredded meat dish, I have forgotten its name, but it ends with the word Ropa, was hard to chew and did not have much meat flavor because of the juice on top of it. The Tre Leches dessert did not come close to the best version that I have had, but it was good, although not very sweet. Very nice atmosphere here, I particularly liked dining under what was made to look like a tent.

I visited on a Saturday evening w/ my husband and mom. Its a small restaurant with a very nice quaint ambiance. Waitress was very attentive. I ordered a drink that was heavily overdone on the rum and requested to replace with another drink which the staff happily did. We ordered the calamari dish which my husband loved but I didn't care for-didn't like the sweetness of the balsamic & plantains on top. My husband ordered the oxtail dish, my mom ordered the fish paella & I ordered the skirt steak. All the dishes were delicious but my steak was overcooked to well done when I requested med-rare. For some reason it took another 40 minutes after our appetizer was brought out for dinner to arrive. As I did not want to wait longer for the steak to be redone I c/o about the long wait time &asked them to take the steak off our check which they accommodated. Even though it was over cooked it still tasted delish. Would defiantly go back again.

Cuba is a long time favorite that never disappoints! It was great seeing so many happy faces dining out after the sad, long year of the COVID-19 pandemic. It's a memory I'll cherish of dining out indoors for the first time in a year!

Amazing! Venue food service all excellent. This was my first time here and I loved the unique outdoor seating it was ideal for my date and I. It felt cozy and romantic. This would be great for friends too. The food was delicious! I recommend the calamari, the ropa vieja and the maduros. The passion fruit sangria was sweet and refreshing.

I love Cuba but the brunch food was not what I expected from them. We did not enjoy our entrees at all. We had the steak and eggs which was low bar from the rest of the menu. I’m sure with everything going on this will improve but I wasn’t happy with my meal and left dissatisfied.
