Everything was great really enjoyed
First time at restaurant & cuban food. All was good price was way too much!
SUCH GOOD CUBAN FOOD with a twist!
we were made to sit in the basement level while tables were empty on the ground level.
food was better than expected. small portion sizes.
The service was really slow on valentine's day as it took them 2 hours to bring out all our food to the table.
they were serving us one dish at a time with long wait times in between.
the ambience is a drab, especially on the lower floor.
Quality food and service. I definitely going back to Gustazos
Gustazo has been on my list for a while and it did not disappoint! Our favorites were the yuca frites and pork belly. Staff was also lovely.
Not too bad, service could of been better / more attentive. Took several times for our server to check on us and food is better at the other location but with covid it’s understandable. Will give it another shot but will most likely go to the other location.
Incredible food and complex ingredients. We live out of town and can’t wait to go here
Had a reservation and was refused to enter the establishment until the complete party was present, wish I would have know it was an issue before being dropped off at the door in the cold as I have a disability. Our waitress was not attentive and we kept having to flag her down for service. She kept saying she worked at the other location and wasn’t familiar with things which we understood but didn’t understand how it correlated to her coming to check in or take our orders. Although the food was good the portions are very small. I feel that the service turned us off from wanting to try this place again and having to be out in the cold when having made a reservation and being on time.
This place is absolutely great. The food is incredible, the prices are good for the quality, and the service is super fun. The heating system outside works well. They also take COVID-19 policies well and called me in advance to explain the new rules. Everything was truly awesome!
We used to love Gustazo. It was our favorite restaurant before Covid. We used to go there at least once a month. After they reopened, things are not the same... unfortunately... They used to have the best Mojito, I always looked forward to our dinners there. Mojitos were so tasty... lots of mint... but now the bartender thinks mint is only for garnish... Their tacos were delicious... now the tortilla is soggy, and the meat taste like is being seating there for a long time... it does not taste fresh... The only thing that still the same, it is the dessert, tres leches... amazing!!! I guess I will stop by once in a while to get the dessert to go...
Great service from the wait staff. Annwar was particularly wonderful.
Awesome food and drinks, very nice servers and a cool space.
Amazing food at a great value. Great date night spot. Extremely authentic. You will love it! Please support this local treasure in these tough times!!
Great cocktails and lots of delicious small plates to choose from!
We had a great evening with lots of social distancing. The food was excellent and the service very attentive.
What’s not to enjoy about this place? The food, the atmosphere and the service is impeccable. I always enjoy my time at Gustazo and can’t recommend it enough.
The food was really good! I really enjoyed the mojito and the restaurant is very clean and well spaced for social distancing.
The food was absolutely amazing and we had a lovely server- felt very safe with their covid restrictions, all in all a wonderful experience!
Gustazo was excellent. From our sever Santiago to the tapas (of which we ordered 13), everything was top notch. I highly recommend this restaurant. Some of our favorites were the corn fritters and roasted cauliflower. Ambience and layout of the restaurant is also super cool. We went mid November and although we ate inside, they had outdoor tables with heaters going and there were plenty of people enjoying dining al fresco despite the chilly evening.
The tapas plates were all excellent and the flavors were delicious. The wine selection was awesome and the red wines were served at the perfect temperature. It was a wonderful meal and the service was very respectful. The servers provided an appropriate amount of distance with their service. The restaurant felt vibrant even with the Covid precautions. I highly recommend the restaurant for a date night or fun with friends.
Some of the best Tapas in the Boston area! They have done a very good job taking COVID precautions.
Everything was great but food was veryyy salty
Food service etc. were great, the restaurant itself was really pretty too
Tasty food, the octopus was great, drinks were good! I wish I had found this place before COVID happened.
Every course was amazing and portioned perfectly! Drinks were great as well.
Went to celebrate a friend’s birthday and we absolutely enjoyed our dinner. Drinks were good, food was great, music choices was good as well.
a bit pricey and the food was overly salty but the service and ambience was lovely
relatively limited menu options
Absolutely delicious, also felt like they did a good job keeping it safe for patrons through the pandemic.
The food is amazing. Everything we tried was bomb. Portions are very small though.
Was here for our one year anniversary and the service was great! The food was amazing but a bit salty. Overall was great and would come again some other time.
Restaurant rushed us out at 9:15 long before the kitchen was supposed to close at 10:30.
Food was incredible, staff was outstanding and incredibly accommodating! Will definitely be back!!
The food was outstanding
Great place, great food. We love coming here......
It was my first cuban experience, and I absolutely loved it!
The food was exceptional. However, all the doors were open and we ended up freezing despite eating with our coats on which was of course very annoying as we wanted to have a relaxing evening out. The situation didn’t change even when we kindly pointed it out.
the food was delicious, they followed all covid protocols
As always, Gustazo and team were wonderful! Home away from home.
