Tourist trap. Servers are very good salesmen. They recommended the Havanas 1957 Signature Chicken. It was the worst chicken I have ever tasted in my life. Similar to microwavable chicken. They also recommended the large mojito so we everyone got that in the group. It was the worst tasting mojito. Also, when the check came out, we didn’t realize is was $40 for that drink. Most expensive cocktail I have ever drank at a low quality restaurant. I understand the price if it was at a nice restaurant but definitely not the case. Lesson learned. Read the fine print before just believing a server. I will never go back and I will never recommend anybody to go yo this restaurant. So many better restaurants in the area.

Fun place for good food and drinks. Sit outside to feel the fresh air and observe south beach.

The staff were nice. The decor pleasant. The food was mediocre. Our mojitos were upgraded to expensive, not anything we have ever done. To compound matters the mojitos were mediocre. The addition of the gratuity to the bill, without the staff mentioning it, well, distasteful. I would not recommend Havana 1957.

This was my second visit to Havana 1957. The atomsphere is amazing! The service is quick and the staff are so polite! Now, the food is out of this world good. The Cuban is what I came for again and it didn't disappoint. It melts in your mouth! Look forward to coming again when in Miami!

Great food and service! Try the tostones relleno or the camarones al ajillo. Delicious! Vibrant and energetic environment! Live entertainment Fridays and Saturdays...we know because we went both days! 😘
Is definitely a stop for us whenever we return!

We were three people in our company, two adults and one child. Us two adults got our food first, leaving our daughter a bit sad that she didn't get her food. After a few minutes when the server got back, we asked when my daughter's food was coming; the server said she was going to check, then disappeared for a long while. After another 10-15 minutes we finally got it. There was no attempt at any sort of compensation, and on top of that there is a forced 20% service charge, which at this point feels like an insult.
When we were about to leave I told the server I wasn't happy about this. They said I (not them) could talk to their manager about compensation, but I'm not going to go and beg about something that should come from them.

Dear guest, We’re dismayed to learn this prevented you from having a good experience at Havana 1957. We aim daily to offer excellent food and service and it discourages us that that was not your impression and to learn the waiter’s offer did not make up for the experience. Thank you for your business.
