It’s season so reservations are a must.
Decor is fresh. Entertainment with piano player and music gets people singing and dancing. Food is good. Service was slow, but it was packed on a Saturday night. We’ll go back.

Awful service. Pedestrian food. Dramatically overpriced. This restaurant would close within a month if it were not located in a tourist town where there’s a dearth of quality restaurants. Simply, the totality of our dining experience was lackluster. We ordered a steak that was priced as if we were dining in Boston or New York and it arrived over-cooked and tough as rubber. Another diner in our party received the wrong entree. Our server did nothing to remedy either issue upon being Informed of each . Moreover, no server came by mid service to inquire if we wanted another drink with our dinner. We spoke to the manager on the way out to voice our displeasure concerning the entire experience. He was gracious and requested our contact information so he could make good. Predictably, we never heard from him or the owner after that evening. Admittedly, the restaurant was crowded the night we dined, but an alleged high end restaurant knows how to adequately staff and manage service during busy and down times.

Upon arrival I gave our name party of 4 and was told that my party of 4 had to sit at the bar regardless that I made the reservations 3 weeks ago for a table for 4 in the Cabana Room. I was quite upset and they said there was nothing they could do or we could sit in the back. We didn't go there to sit in the back. I'm sure they screwed up but didn't want to admit it. I have never had a problem booking a table through open table in the past. If they don't want to deal with open table then they should exclude themselves and just let people Call to reserve.

This place just reopened with new owner and redecorated. Menu all new and interesting fare with obvious Italian flare. Portions are generous and delicious! Fish is purchased across the street at the Fish store so you can be sure its fine.
Wine list needs work but they are working on it. Highly recommend!

We were so excited to see our friend Ray Chang performing there. The food and atmosphere was phenomenal. All the servers and wait-staff are amazing. Quick, courteous and sweet. The food was so delicious! A recommended place indeed.

First time st this new restaurant. Unique atmosphere. Entertainment was a hit, great dancing. Expansive menus, good value. We will be back. Service can improve but I’m sure it will. They are learning the ropes and it was a big crowd. Owner is an interior decorator and seat and restaurant design is pretty neat. They didn’t have my Bourbon and he said he would have it the next time I visit. They are doing some work to accommodate outside dining. Allow cigars outside.

The music made the place so lively that you couldn't help but have a good time. The food was quite good and plated very well and the server did as best they could under a very busy situation. It was a lot of fun and we all enjoyed ourselves I would recommend it make sure you get on the bar side if you want the lively side

This has only been open for 3 weeks and I must say, they did an excellent job.
Excellent salads( caprese and Pear salad) exceptional Veal Milanese Very good veal chop and great drink and wine selection.
Owners made themselves known and its a very pretty restaurant too.

I was really excited to try the new restaurant. The staff was not very friendly and it was warm when we sat down. It took them a while to turn the air conditioning down after three requests. If you’re 50 years or younger I wouldn’t recommend this place. Really disappointed and have no interest in returning.

Terrible service upon walking in. We were 4 and they seated us at a table for 6. Wouldn’t change us when 80% of room was still unoccupied. Rediculous! We’d never go back. Food was ok - not great.

Fun times at this new hot spot. Lively bar with great entertainment & dancing (may be on weekends only)... We sat on the other side (not bar area) and had a fantastic dinner, great wine selection with Gary waiting on us. Attractive restaurant, great food & service... lively bar with entertainment... who can ask for more? Looking forward to our next visit.

This restaurant is very new and has some kinks to work out.
No wine list was offered so there were no choices for what I wanted....chardonnay.
The food was good and had potential to get better.
Decor was beautiful in a streamlined (cruise ship-like)way.Stunning, actually.
I would return to check it's progress.

Absolutely outstanding place. The ambiance, the food, the service, the live music, ALL of it was amazing. Our food came out fast and piping hot and it was delicious. My date and I had the best time dancing and singing along with Ray Chang the piano player. I could write an entire review on Ray alone, dancing on tables, jumping from bar to bar, and all around putting on a performance that I will not soon forget. Cucina Cabana was absolutely fantastic and I will be going back with friends and family soon. 10 out of 10 experience!

This is a new restaurant and kinks need to be worked out. The best part about it is the food. Very fresh, homemade, authentic, and delicious. However, the chef needs to learn about gluten free options!!! So many people have diet restrictions and if they want to be modern and contemporary, they should update themselves with this knowledge. Unfortunately, the noise level is awful if you are dining in the restaurant area. Also, the lightening is too bright and it doesn’t feel intimate. Instead, it feels cold. I feel like these are things they should fix. Curious to see what others think.
