Cuba on Thompson St is always our happy place! The staff is like family, with a warm and friendly welcome and service. Food is always awesome, and the latin tri on weekends adds a wonderful touch to the ambiance!

Been to Cuba numerous times for Brunch and I always have a good time and the drinks are great. We went for dinner for the first time on a Saturday and we can not complain. The food was just as great and they had a live music band playing a mix of Cuban and Brazilian songs. Will definitely go again and again.

Great bottomless brunch - there are a variety of drinks to choose from, beyond your standard mimosas. Food is very good too.

The most awkward sitting, couldn't have a conversation without other people hearing it and vice versa, food was okay, the staff is nice. Won't be returning though

Worst thing about this place was finding parking. Otherwise this place was near perfect. The steak was great. The chicken was great. The portions were not meager. My mojitos were on point and the sorbet was good. There was live music in the adjoining room which added to the ambiance. Take your date to Cuba you will enjoy yourselves.

Our reservation was 11:15pm , our waiter from the start so rude he did not want to explain the menu he was rushing us to make the order because they close at 12 - the churrasco we order well done it came out rare and when I asked for dessert he said the kitchen is closed- I told him that if they weren’t going to aloud us to enjoy our food and let us finish they should not have reservations at 11:15pm then he said hey I have a flan just eat that I said no sir I want the bill —- my experience was horrible just because 1 person wanted to go home 205 bill bad customer service we were 5 people

This was an outstanding experience all the way around. The food, presentation, service and prices were excellent! Best pitcher of mojito's. Hats off the all of the staff that made our evening so enjoyable. We will certainly return! The music was great and our request to be seated within view of the musicians was honored.

First time at this Restaurant in the City. The ambiance is wonderful, the food is delicious and wonderfully presented. There were four of at our table and all four were pleased with our selected dishes. The Ropa Vieja (Shredded Beef) was flavorful and very well seasoned. The Roast Pork was moist and cooked to perfection. Reserve this place without hesitation, you will be glad you did!

The food was authentic Cuban. The table was a bit cramped and our waiter had the personality of a rock. Overall the restaurant was clean and the food was excellent.

The host and the servers were courteous and friendly. I arrived almost as brunch was ending and dinner beginning, the host was kind so he gave us both brunch and dinner menus. He said if you hurry you can still get brunch. Cheaper prices. What honesty and goodness. We shall return. The “cafe con leche” coffee with milk is like my mother served it. The coconut flan with pineapple was expensive but delicious.

First time visit w/ a group of 7 including a big client and everyone loved it. From the great tasting specialty drinks and starters to the main entrees that knocked it out of the park. The Suckling Pig, Ox Tails, Red Snapper, and more all hit the spot and had everyone leaving happy and full. We will definitely return w/ or w/out customers.
Service was outstanding along w/ all the staff.

Been here many, many times. Food is consistently awesome and mojitos fantastic. Cuba is crowded and hopping on a Saturday night and with entertainment, it gets loud and festive. It's an atmosphere that I 100% enjoy and look for when coming here - but be prepared (guys next to us were more looking for a romantic evening)

We used take all our friends and celebrations to Cuba Restaurant. We retuned this time and we’re very disappointed with the Mojitos , the food . The menu is not even Cuban anymore it’s mixed with Peruvian and a whole bunch of other stuffs beside misleading costumers with a G ( Gluten ) very confusing. I won’t visit this place again
