Havana 1957 - Ocean Drive

Great service, delicious food and drinks.
This location is ok—given it’s South Beach. It is, however, a bit cramped compared to the Pembroke location. The tables for 2 are tiny with barely enough room for all the plates being brought out. The food was ok. Energetic crowd.
Thank you for joining us and leaving your feedback, Bijoux. We hope to have another chance to turn your experience into a 5 star one.
In pieno centro su Ocean Drive, prezzi contenuti visto la zona. Servizio veloce, location carina e simpatica.
Cibo discreto, mojto molto buono
Thank you for giving us 5 stars, We hope to welcome you again soon!
Great location, service and staff! The entertainment was very good. The chips were superb. The salad was over dressed. The ceviche was good and salmon mousse - so so. Went back for a breakfast of eggs, potatoes, bread and coffee. Bread was excellent. The eggs and potatoes were swimming in warm not so tasty oil/grease. Overall - good.
We're glad you enjoyed your overall experience, MarkG. We hope to welcome you again soon to make your next experience with us worthy of 5 stars.
Our server was fantastic! Thanks, Miguel!
We're glad you enjoyed the service, Jill. Thank you for giving us 5 stars.
Great meal and tremendous ambiance. Food was excellent and the wait staff was really on point. Can’t go wrong with ordering the lechon with black beans and rice. They had live entertainment on Friday night. Music was an added bonus.
Thank you, Phillip. We're glad you enjoyed your experience and can recommend us. Come back soon!
Really great food and live Cuban music. Not a huge fan of the 20% service charge even on small parties. The mojitos are very tasty.

Went with family for dinner, food, service and live music were excellent! Great time!
We're glad you spent your time spent at Havana 1957. Thank you for giving us 5 stars.
Our waitress was very good, loved the complementary plantain chips and dip, portions were large (except the yuca truffle fries) and the Mojitos were good. We enjoyed sitting outside and would visit this restaurant again.
Thank you for leaving your comments, Lori. We're glad you enjoyed your meal and look forward to your return.
Lots of hidden charges that is nowhere on their website nor on the menu. Resort fee, mandatory service charge and they have the nerve to suggest additional tip
MarieMicheleL, We're sorry you had a less than great experience at Havana 1957. We strive to be as clear as possible with upcharges. All our menus contain a disclaimer that informs about the service charge being included on your bill, the resort tax is a city tax applied to all restaurants and we cannot decide not to charge this. Though suggested, it is not required to give an additional tip. We hope to have another opportunity to turn your experience around.
Great food and great service in a popular and fun area.
Thank you for rating our restaurant with 5 stars. We're glad you enjoyed the food and service. Come back soon.

Good overall meal. All food and drink good. But steak a bit tough for a $33 item.
Thank you for joining us and leaving your rating, kimm. We're pleased you enjoyed your overall experience.

Have a mojito.
Thank you for joining us and leaving your rating. LydiaC. Come back soon.
Made an 8:30 reservation. Was greeted by name at the door and seated right away. Definitely wasn’t packed by any means, so a reservation was unnecessary, but we wanted to be on the safe side. Our waitress was super attentive and nice. Fresh plantain chips as you seat were 10/10 and the mojito pitcher was yum! (We got passion fruit) we have been to Cuban places before this the food here was the BEST! we got the churrasco steak and the camarones al ajillo. Fresh shrimp and steak cooked so well I could have cut it with a spoon. We will definitely be back !!!! They also will bring out a flan with sparkler and sing happy birthday, but it is not comped, which was a little surprising for a $150+ dinner for 2
Thank you for letting us know how your experience was. We're glad you enjoyed the food and look forward to your return.
Our server was not open about the prices of certain size drinks and pushed a “large” drink that she didn’t share was $40 when we were looking at a price of $16 - $20. When the bill came and we questioned the price of the drinks, she said we were the ones that wanted that drink size and I told her she didn’t tell us it was $40. She brought that menu where written in small letters on the back was the price of the drinks we ordered. At no point in time during the ordering process did she flip the menu and show us the price of the drink
Watch for service tip added to your bill
Thank you for givig us 5 stars. We hope to welcome you again soon.
My new favorite Cuban restaurant. Love this place.
Thank you for your comments. We hope to welcome you again soon.
Great experience, family.came.down from NY to try authentic Cubin food
Thank you for your comments, Damon. We're pleased you enjoyed your visit to Havana 1957. Come back soon.
Food came out fast but was average at best. Service was just ok. Location was entertaining on Ocean Drive. Price for the area was not bad.
Your feedback is appreciated, Rob. We're sorry the food did not meet your expectations and hope to have another chance to improve your experience with the food.
This place is a bit of a tourist spot but the atmosphere was fun and food was delicious. Definitely a good spot to stop in if you want good food and drinks and a seat right hip
Good food and atmosphere!
Service was extremely slow. Took almost an hour to get a couple of sandwiches and salads.
The service was excellent and the food was great
Thank you for your comments! We're glad you enjoyed your experience.
The sidewalk seating was great but the party that was happening inside was EXCITING! WEPA ..... The food was ok... chicken could have been seasoned a little more. But overall this establishment captured the essence of Havana down to the cigar girl that came by our table. Will definitely be returning in the future!
The food was very delicious and drinks were exactly as I expected. The mojitos are bomb I highly recommend getting a pitcher to share with a love one or a friend. The atmosphere is gorgeous and staff was very nice.
Thank you for giving us 5 stars.
A really great dining experience. They take customer service to another level. I’m still dreaming about the ropa vieja!
We're glad to hear you enjoyed our Ropa Vieja. Thank you for giving us 5 stars. Come to visit us again soon.
I reserved a table inside and, upon arrival, was told that there were no available tables inside due to a birthday. We were requested to take a seat outside. I went to the toilet and noticed that there were available tables inside and requested to be moved inside. With some difficulty, we managed to get a table inside. Make sure you insist to get a table inside because there is live music and the ambiance is much much better than outside. By the way, there was no birthday inside ...
Good afternoon, Franc. We 're sorry your experience was not as expected. Even if customers don't show up on time, We cannot take reserved tables. We apologize as well for any inconvenience this may have caused
Very nice spot...food was good. Band that was playing very good quality music
Beware that the charge gratuity and do no tell you.
Your feedback is appreciated Webberwarrior. We strive to be as clear as possible with any upcharges and our menus contain a disclaimer that informs about the service charge being included on your bill.
Fuimos a cenar por mi cumpleaños y estuvo muy bien. La calidad de la comida es buena y el ambiente animado, quizas el volumen de la musica un poco alto para mi gusto. Me cantaron el cumpleaños feliz y lo pasamos bien, eso si, la tarta en la que pusieron la vela para soplar nos la cobraron.
Great customer service ambience was lacking
Food was great, ambiance was very tropical can enjoyable, only thing is, our waitress completely forgot that we were celebrating a birthday, after we paid she realized, but it was too late, it really wasn't too busy, not sure what happened. Definitely would go but but not for anything special.
Portion sizes were huge! Very friendly staff.
Thank you for leaving your comments. We're glad you enjoyed the service given by the staff. We invite you to join us again soon.
Es war ein wunderschöner Abend. Personal super freundlich. Essen war klasse. Location mit Flair

The restaurant was excellent! Food tasted great and the atmosphere was fun!
A must return.
Thank you, Michelle. It means a lot to us to have your recommendation. We look forward to serving you again soon.
The food was fantastic and of course it was great to dine on Ocean Drive. But what really made it stand out was the service, our waitress, Elena, went above and beyond. Can thoroughly recommend the South Beach Mojitos plus the salads for a vegetarian were delicious.
Good morning, FaithW. Thank you for leaving your review. We are happy that Elena made your dinner stand out we're looking forward to serving you again.
Awesome food and experience. Will definitely go back when I return to Miami
Thank you very much for your comments. We look forward to your next return!
