Havana 1957 Chicken
Braised and shredded flank steak stewed in criolla sauce. Served with white rice and black beans
It was okay. I would recommend for the ambiance and drinks. Food was decent. Service was slow/not attentive ( this was not due to them being busy). Overall I’d still give it another try

No one spoke to us for 45 minutes, it’s basically a Cuban Applebee’s. No thanks
I had the Cubano sampler and got to enjoy a bit of everything! The drinks were strong and still delicious.
Thank you Momo for visiting us and we are glad to read that you enjoyed every bit about ou Cubano sampler. We hope you visit us again.
I hate to rate anything low and it could have just been busy also the Cuba riots are happening right now so I will try not to say anything negative but it was very tight , we had to go to a second location and everything was just ok

Excellent food. The ceviche was great as well as the read snapper and everything else. I will be back ASAP.
Thank you for rating us with 5 stars! We’re glad that you liked our food and can't wait for you to visit us again.
Excellent wait staff, very friendly and accommodating. Ambiance is great as well. Some hits and misses on the food as the chicken was dry though the pork dishes where delicious. Portions are generous so be sure to bring an appetite.
Thank you for your review. Your feedback is appreciated and we hope to welcome you again soon.
Thank you for your 5-star rating, KingEyes. We're glad you enjoyed our delicious drinks and we hope to have you back very soon.
Great Cubano Sandwiches. Server was very pleasant and enjoyable. Place is designed like a pre communistic revolution.
Thank you Mike for joining us and we are glad to know that you enjoyed our Cuban sandwiches and that the service was to your liking.
Food is phenomenal, but tip is automatically included so waiters have no desire to ensure a good experience. Our waiter was rude, messed up an order, was not helpful and argued with us the entire meal. I’d wish they would amend this policy, but the food is what keeps this place worth the trip.

Great food and drinks
Thank you! We are happy that you enjoyed our food and drinks!
Food was good. Beware there is a 20% service fee they don’t tell u about. They don’t bring a bill just a handheld card reader and ask if u want to tip. So we ended up tipping 45% in the end without knowing it. Only saw this when I requested a paper copy of the receipt.
This soured our experience somewhat! $60 for 1 sandwich and 1 mojito.
Great Cuban cuisine! Will definitely visit again
Amazing food and vibes!!! Loved it!
Excellent place for Cuban food, while in South Beach. The Cubano Sandwich, and Lechon Asado was delicious. The Cuban coffee was perfect for an outdoor afternoon meal.
Casual, good food, quick service
More expensive than other locations. Food is fine and portions are large.
We can’t say enough good things about Havana 1957. The food was absolutely superb and the staff was friendly and fun. We will definitely be coming back next time we are in town!
The food was good! I got the Cubano sandwich. Fries are so tiny and sandwhich was a good size but not huge how it looks on pictures. Shared with my husband and we weren’t full. It was pretty expensive as well. We also got a side because we weren’t full and it was super good but only came with three of them haha.
The food was outstanding and the drinks were even better. I had never had Cuban food in my life and have now become a huge fan because of this place!
I had heard so many great things about Havana 1957 so went there to celebrate my birthday. It was pretty to sit outside at night but the service was not to the level one would expect. Our waiter was not personable amd did not listen to us and was not attentive. He was frantic and hurried and we had to repeat everything. My friend even mentioned it was my birthday but he never even brought a slice of cake. Had the seafood stew which was fine bit nothing spectacular. The plantains were some nicely. The menu looks like it was designed for a diner and we got paper napkins not cloth. In all, I was very disappointed
Of all the places we ate in the past 10 days from Fort Lauderdale to Key West, THIS WAS OUR FAV FOOD AND EXPERIENCE!
Food was okay and the service no better. Not a good value for the money and will not go back.
Small portions for the price. Friendly but slow service.
We had a great tine - Mitchell was an excellent waiter
My daughter and I had a great dinner. The Shrimp Cocktail was great. We had the Seafood Stew and the Havana 1957 Chicken and both were wonderful. Service was impeccable and comfortable. We will be back again this week!
Nice venue on Ocean drive. Outdoor seating was pleasant. Food, drinks and special were great.
Chicken and braised steak were both a bit dry but otherwise the meal was very tasty
The waiter was so nice and the food was delicious.
Buena, experiencia buena comida
Me encanto toda la comida recomiendo el cerdo asado es delicioso , los minutos son súper grandes
While on mini vacay to Miami, we dined at Havana and ate outside. I had the lobster chunks and shrimp in a stew and my husband had the Cuban sandwich. Both meals were delicious!! Red Sangria perfectly made. The ambience outside was very nice in the evening with Latin music playing. Our server, however, was very rude! Too bad I didn’t get his name. But our sentiments were reflected in his $2.00 tip.
Cuban sampler was a good way to get some variety without getting too much of any one thing. Plenty of food for two people. Service was okay. Our waiter was not very welcoming and made us feel like we were imposing with his seeming coldness. He did not check on us after food was delivered. It was good food so we ultimately didn’t mind, but it decreased our overall enjoyment.
The food was amazing and the service was great.
On the north side of Ocean Blvd, close to Loewe’s Hotel, Lincoln Rd and other premier eating and shopping, Havana1957 delivers authentic Cuban cuisine with spirited atmosphere and intoxicating Caribbean drum beats against the vibrantly lit backdrop of South Beach’s Art Deco beach facing strip.
Great food and location! Francisco did an awesome job and we look forward to coming back again soon!
We had to come back and again the food was amazing
Great Cuban food, great friendly service, lively ambience!
Visiting Miami and was looking forward to this restaurant, rice was under cooked, special chicken was dry, took forever to get a glass of water, service was slow. If I could give -5 stars I would.
