Book your next event with us
Excellent service and very large portions.
We had an awesome time at Havana 1957. Our server George was on it! He recommended the lobster and shrimp "gumbo"... so good!!
Great server, very nice but it took forever!!! Dinner took two and a half hours!
I hate to leave a poor review but everything I tasted was horrible... steak was so chewy I gave up.
Alain was our waiter and spoiled us with personal and meticulous attention. We dined outside and the atmosphere was wonderful. Great food!!!!
Great atmosphere and good food in South Beach.
Was a nice environment however very pricey ppl dinner and drinks almost $400
Too busy and guests like us with reservation was arranged outside while it is raining afterwards . Customer-conscious restaurant should be considerate on this
This place is excellent. It is very lively, but maintain good food quality.
Eating at Havana 1957 is always a pleasure. As usual this year we were seated promptly and our waiter was quite responsive. The food was right on with excellent appetizers and entrees. The Ocean Drive location is the only Havana 1957 we have been too. We will come back.
Love this place! Every time we are in Miami we go !
Thank you. We're glad you always enjoy coming to our restaurant.
It was my first time visiting with my boyfriend and it is definitely a place I would come back to. Our server was phenomenal and attentive and took great care of us! We will be back when we come back to Miami! Thanks so much to this great establishment for their exceptional customer service.
Thank you for joining us and leaving your comments, Amber. We look forward to your next visit. Regards.
Just ate my leftovers from dinner-the specialty Havana chicken, and all I can say is YUM🥰
Great food and service. The Cuban combo platter is recommended.
This place is amazing! Definitely go during happy hour to get more bang for your buck.
Very good Cuban style food. The restaurant decor reflects everything Havana. The drinks were good., location is excellent. The lunch special was a great value. Friendly service.
Food was ok, not the best I've ever had, but it was fine. Ambiance was very touristy, but that's the area we were in. Our waiter was nice enough, but was clearly annoyed when we didn't order any alcoholic drinks. I probably wouldn't be back, but it was nice enough for the dinner we were there.
Good place for reasonably priced Cuban food with good view and entertainment. Recommend outside seating. Close to the beach to walk afterwards. Staff very attentive and pleasant.
I do plan on going on a few other sights to caution that we were totally unaware that we would be charged a 20% gratuity, when we added a very nice 20% on the top, so in essence tipped on top of the tip. Our waiter who was very fun , George #499, did not want us to see the itemized bill and when he said he would replace free of charge a drink@ $19.95 that spilled as soon as he set it down table did replace it and charged us for both. Just a word of caution, look bill over closely.
SallyS, We appreciate you took the time to write about your experience at Havana 1957. As a common practice in the area, the service charge is included on the bill. We strive to be as clear as possible with this and our menus contain a disclaimer that informs our guests. We will take your comments into consideration to correct what’s wrong and prevent this from happening again in the future.
Great Cuban live music and good service always pays! I had a great time specially enjoying the music.
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.
We're glad you enjoyed your overall experience. Thank you for joining us and leaving your rating.
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.
Nice food, relaxing place, staff are friendly,
Very good experience!
Thank you for leaving your 5 star rating, Grace. 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.
I love the food and music was great too. Our waitress was very attending and always smiling, even when she was really busy.

The food is so good !
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.
