I thought I had put that it was her birthday on my reservation but we didn’t get any bells and whistle’s so maybe I forgot. I did the reservation through open table.

Wine options very limited. Most of what was on the wine list was not available. Food was disappointing. Too many dished were fried . Not lots of fresh options.

This restaurant was a pleasant surprise. Parking was easy on. Tuesday night 6 pm. First time visit and I will be back. Although we were only two people, nice to see seating for large parties. My cocktail was yummy ...something with blood orange. Entrays were plenty and filling. We ordered two plates each. Our waiter really knew the menu. Glad to see gender neutral restrooms! No line for the ladies room AND they were both clean. Yup we will definitely return someday! Oh and the name of this place is hilarious....You went WHERE??!!

One of our favorite restaurants. Great drinks, atmosphere and fantastic food! Tried a new dish (calamari) along with our usual staples. The dessert (banana extravagenza) is amazing. We never get any other dessert:)

I dine out regularly with friends. When I want a special "lift" Cuchi Cuchi always comes to mind first, and my fellow diners never say no at the suggestion. The food is excellent, the service is personal and efficient, and one always gets the feeling that the servers are having a good time, too. The atmosphere is fun and we always like the attire. A couple of times I have arrived without a reservation, but they have been able to accommodate me (after a short wait) at the bar, which was fun, especially watching the various creative martinis being made. Be aware-- this is not a " one and done" place. Once you've experienced Cuchi Cuchi, you will return!

Cuchi Cuchi has become our favorite fun place to WOW our out-of-town guests. The food, atmosphere, and service are the reasons we keep coming back. Be sure to make reservations in advance.

This is a lovely, hip place, with an awesome cocktail selection and very cool small plates. All the food we had was good to excellent, not absolutely mind-blowing as I've had other places in the same price range, but definitely delicious and fun! And the atmosphere is amazing -- it feels a little like stepping into a traditional place in Cuba. Our server was extremely attentive and apologetic when our drinks didn't come right away, so high marks for that as well!

I had been meaning to go to Cuchi Cuchi for a year on the recommendation of friends. Finally got to go and it was the perfect place for a special date night. They provide a truly memorable experience from the moment you enter. Everyone and everything is beautifully, tastefully decorated, and you feel transported. We tried 4 dishes, 4 cocktails, and dessert, and everything was A+. Can’t wait to return to try everything else on the menu. Bottom line, Cuchi Cuchi does not disappoint.

When Cuchi Cuchi originally opened, it instantly became one of our favorite restaurants. But sadly, as time has gone on, this restaurant has changed for the worse. The prices have gone from reasonable to ridiculous, and the "small plates" have become "miniscule-and-overpriced-plates." The items we ordered were ok, but for what we spent, the flavors/presentation/portions were lacking. On the plus side, the decor and ambiance is stunning!

Not to many attention from the waitress, even when we complained about the below :
We ordered various plates to share at the beginning being told plates will come one after the other, they all came at the same time = no more room on the table, rushed to eat, some dishes were cold by that time.
Food is delicious though.
The ambiance is very original (eclectic decor, like the menu), including the waiter/tress outfit, which bring a very eclectic crowd.

This was our sixth visit to Cuchi Cuchi. The food has always been good. This time it was even better. Just great. Our server, Max, was very personable. The NOISE LEVEL, however, was nearly unbearable

We loved everything about Cuchi Cuchi – the decor, the waitresses outfits, the waitresses, and, of course, the food.

However, the noise level was excruciatingly loud - painful. Granted, there was a fairly large and very noisy party seated next to us, but it was so difficult to hear we had to literally shout at each other. The hostess offered to seat us in the front part of the restaurant, but she said that soon a party of 10 would be seated there and the noise would be just as bad. We decided to stay where we were as the alternative didn’t seem to solve the problem.

It really spoiled what would have been an otherwise perfect evening of dining out. I don’t know what could have been done in a situation like that – I do not have the experience - but one would hope the restaurant does.

I’m a foodie that rarely returns to any restaurant simply because there are so many i want to try. This is an exception. Every component of this experience was exceptional. We had two veggies, two meats and a fish and all were off the charts amazing. I’m definitely going back.

This place is pretty mind blowing. Wife and I went as an invitation with a co-worker who chose the restaurant. His wife’s favorite... it was EXCELLENT!! we took turns ordering share items back and forth for a couple hours... at one point the other couple ordered octopus which we would NEVER have tried otherwise. It was my second favorite dish of the evening! Overall the food, atmosphere and service were on a higher level. FANTASTIC experience!!

We were celebrating a friends engagement. We had been in a few times before and loved it. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was perfect for the celebration. However, our service left something to be desired. Our waitress kept disappearing for long periods of time, forgetting rounds of drinks, and we likely would have spent a lot more money had she been more attentive.

I've been to this restaurant several times, and the highlights for me are the cocktails. On our visit Saturday, I had 3 bad ones. First was a muddled fruit drink that was sugary with no fruit (I've had this before and it's normally one of my favorites because it is fresh and not overly sweet which was not the case this time); next another drink with a missing ingredient that they didn't inform me of ahead of time - it didn't taste right, so I asked for something else and they made a big deal about taking it off the bill which was uncomfortable and changed the mood for our group; final drink order took forever to come and also didn't taste good so I didn't finish it. I have NEVER sent a drink back, and I'm normally not picky about cocktails - this was just an unusually bad experience. Hoping it was just a lapse at the bar and they'll be back because they're usually great. Otherwise the food was fantastic as always, and the ambiance is amazing. I'll probably give it another chance at some point, but this experience put me off for a while.

They seated us in the back by the kitchen door, which I would expect for a walk-in but not with a reservation. The drinks took forever, they arrived after our food did. The waiter was very nice and apologetic. The food was fine.

This was a friends' get-together to cheer up my guest. I explained that to our server, Stela, and she made this a perfect way to help my friend get out of the dumps. While Cuchi Cuchi is always a good choice, Stela made this my best visit ever. Thank you, Stela!!!
