It was great service overall. We enjoyed the food, drinks and ambience.. The waiters were friendly and made sure everything was great at all times.
It was my husbands birthday and we had a small party of 8. Food and service were wonderful.
Table is never ready regardless of reservations.. always something.. service is also hit or miss.. food and entertainment is good..
Great time as always delicious food, coffee and excellent service and friendly staff.
The band was great, ceviche was fresh, and staff was friendly.
Love the music, but just a tiny bit too loud. (Perhaps it has to be a bit louder to reach the guests further back).
It was enjoyable but not organized as far as seating
Noise level was the best. Live music while eating. Loved it.
very good service, good access during weekdays, spinach salad very good
Good food and great service. Angel ,Florencio and Gallo make Uor happy 😊.
The service could’ve been a little faster given the re
Angel make us come back all the time. Food is delicious and the service is excellent
I had a reservation at 9 pm. Was not seated till 9:45. Seems like there is no point of having a reservation.
Food and drinks where great and they didn’t rush us out which was awesome!
Sangria was good!
Food is superb and the entertainment also superb! True authentic Cuban restaurant. Love it so much!
Loved it! Fun place to enjoy a great meal! Will definitely go back again.
Nice place, good food n good service.
Celebrated my birthday today. Everyone was super attentive and helpful for a party of 11.
Food was great ! Authentic service was wonderful you fell like home good experience love it!!
This was my third time dining here. Went for Valentine’s Day so there was a prixe fix menu. Would have much preferred their regular menu, which I find to be much better quality and more flavorful. Drinks were yummy and strong. Ambiance was fun as there was live music. Staff is always attentive and friendly. Will probably go back again.
Delightful dinning experience, amazing food and great live band!
It was Valentine Day, they had pre course menu. It was delicious!!
The food and service were amazing the dessert not so much but can't be perfect at everything
The food and the music we an excellent ending to our anniversary.
Went to eat there on Christmas Day and my Aunt never received her food . When her food did come out it was 100% wrong. We ordered drinks and that took long to come.
Food very good. Service a little slow. But will come back again
Love the music
It was our first time there, and we LOVED it!!!! We will definitely be coming back!!
Just ok. Not the best Cuban restaurant.
Food was very disappointing.
How happy are we to have this restaurant in our neighborhood? VERY. If you haven't been, please go. Forest Hills isn't overly blessed with wonderful restaurant options, but Guantanamera is just terrific. Ropa vieja is absolutely delicious. It's easy to become a regular here.
I have been to the Manhattan location and the paella is so much better. The paella at this location has carrots, bell peppers, peas and corn. It tasted like it was from a can. I would go again but order something else. They miss the mark on the flavors with the paella. Hopefully the other food does not taste like can food.
Happy hour is too limited and need to expand. Good service and band was great.
Excellent as always. Shrimp in Creole sauce was outstanding. Love this place.
I ordered the Paella Marinara for the main course but it was cooked what looked and tasted like frozen vegetable medley!? Never had Paella with a medley of veges just Peas.
There for lunch. Restaurant not busy. My pork dish was a little tough, but service was good.
Awesome! Accommodation for party of 20 after civil matrimony. Food was great and in abundance. Service and staff professional and courteous. Everyone left happy and full, including the newlyweds. Thank you for a memorial moment.
The food was very good and the waitstaff friendly and accommodating. The music was a little too loud for me, but I was very happy when the band singer sang "Guantanamera" before they left. This was the first time I have come to this restaurant with my family. I would definitely come back again and have recommended this restaurant to several people.
We had our mother’s 77th birthday dinner and the experience was fantastic. We were a large party of 9 and the service was amazing and the food was great! Highly recommend it!!
