loved our server and the food and drinks were amazing! thank you for a great experience :)
The food was very tasty. Service was very attentive. Hiwever, they don't let you substitute a side salad if you trying to avoid the beans & rice or plantains.
A little bit smoky even in the non-smoking side but the atmosphere is enjoyable and the food delicious. Excellent value for brunch. Will definitely return for both dinner and brunch.
Great service !
it was nice and was attended to very well. The food was good and my favorite is tres leche cake
My favorite restaurant in Richmond
We sat in the cigar bar. They had an above average cigar selection. Service was outstanding. Food was plentiful and delicious. The Hennessy Mojito was great. We had a great time!
Havana 59 is always great. Been going there for years.
Absolutely loved it. Good food, good drinks!
Great service, great atmosphere and great food. What more can I say?
Excellent food and service - one of our favorite Richmond restaurants!
One of my favorite spots, especially for Happy Hour. Best calamari EVERY!
I had reservation at 4:30pm. We were seated on time, however, we were told that our food would not be cooked until 5:00. We were able to order appetizers. I ordered 2 meals that would take 30 minutes. We ordered arroz con pollo and the paella. The waitress brought us 2 arroz con pollo 1 hour and 10 minutes after we ordered it. She brought it out at 5:45 and I had an engagement to be at by 6:30pm.The arroz con pollo was very bland. I do not understand why it took so long when it was not even seasoned.
Place is nice and busy. They have smoking allowed on one side with a swinging door which does not keep the smoke from entering the non-smoking side. Appetizers were delicious. The pallea was a little over cooked and needed seasoning. Would recommend place if you don’t mind the smoking.
Great food and fantastic prices!
Fantastic ambiance, decor, and menu. Food was pretty good. Service was friendly, felt personal, and prompt. Smoke was a little bothersome, even sitting in the non smoking section, but tolerable.
Great little place, eat there at every opportunity when I’m in Richmond
Went there based on the idea that there is dancing. The website said salsa on Thursday, which lead us to believe that there would be dancing, on the weekend. We were disappointed. The website should also, clearly describe how to get there. The main entrance, in on an accessible from the street and difficult to find. The pluses: food was good and there is an indoor smoking section. Music was a little loud.
Todd was amazing. Monitor were among the best. Monday night Taste of Havana deal was nice. Great atmosphere.
We had a wonderful time and our server took great care of us and really made out night special.
We really enjoyed the food, service, drinks, and yummy cigars! Overall, outstanding experience. We were very happy!
Second visit. Repeat from first visit "Great Time"! Tried different food items on menu, very good. Definitely on our "go to list" as far as restaurants are concerned.
FIRST VISIT. GREAT TIME. GREAT DRINKS AND FOOD. CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK.
Tried Havana 59 for Sunday Brunch. Nothing special stood out. I liked the rustic atmosphere. The food is ok...nothing special. It's a good value and was easy to get a table without reservations. I think it's more of a cigar/nightlife bar than a restaurant. If I were a party guy, I'd definitely return once the street lights were on. ;-)
Kallan was amazing!
A bit hot and sticky but overall a great place to go. We will be back
The paella for two was excellent , better than Madrid.
We are from out of town and enjoyed this little gem. I would recommend this place. The food was tastey. The service was fair, food took longer than expected. The vibe here with gentlemen on the open air bar side smoking cigars and salsa dancers heading for the upstairs was cool. Would go back.
Food and drinks was great! Service was very slow.
I’ve been going to brunch here on occasion since the first weekend they started offering brunch and have never been disappointed. This time, however, they have outdone themselves. The menu was great before but this time it was fantastic. Definetly the best brunch I have had. The Benedict was amazing even though they were out of pork belly (I substituted chorizo) and everyone else in my group of 6 was very pleased with their choices.
What a great atmosphere... great food and very friendly service. Great for a friends get together!
Had a celebration dinner here for 8 people. The service was terrible. Server was not attentive. Drinks were very slow to arrive. Food took over an hour to be served and some of the meals were luke warm. One person's meal came 5-10 minutes after the rest of the table. Food itself was mediocre. This is a place I want to like but they seem to do everything possible to make it a painful experience. This was to be a celebration and I had arranged for a limo for the group. The dinner took so long that I had to have the limo for an additional 4th hour.
Had brunch here. Decided what I wanted until the lovely waitress told me about the crab cake special. Went with the special and it was amazing. Can't wait to visit Richmond again so I can visit for dinner. Authentic Cuban food and feel. This is a must visit.
Awesome food, Jasmine our sever was friendly and very helpful!!! She is great and takes care of her customers.
Havana 59 is always an enjoyable dining experience; Was seated promptly, was served promptly, was served attentively, and the food was deliciously well prepared. The only part of this experience that kept it from getting five stars all around is the fact that I had to ask for the check twice; The check eventually arriving at least 12 minutes after the first request almost causing me to miss the curtain at West Side Story.
I could eat here everyday. I love the food and ambiance.
Great place, I was dining with 9 friends and the restaurant set us up with open window seating, it was a perfect Sunday, weather was great making the dining experience near perfect. The only issue was that some of the food selections were very spicy, the restaurant should rank the spiciness of its food or warn it's patrons.
We had a 10 am reservation and we were the first ones to arrive after they opened. We did have a party of 8 and it was Father’s Day, but our food took an hour to come out and it was breakfast food.
My husband and I really enjoyed Havana 59. The food was authentic, the atmosphere was awesome and the staff was amazing.
The food was filling and authentic. We loved the appetizers we shared, the nachos with plantains and the fried calamari. My husband had the Lechón Asado and wasn’t impressed. He didn’t think the pork had very much flavor. I on the other hand enjoyed the Ropa Vieja very much. However, I was not thrilled with the service. I asked the waitress if I could replace the plantains and tostones with fried yucca on my dish. She said yes, but instead I was served the dish with the plantains and tostones and a side order of Yuca fries. At the end of the evening I was charged for the side of yuca fries in addition to the meal. I also thought the mojoitos were $7 and I was charged $10, but maybe I mis read this. The women’s bathroom was also not as clean as it should have been; floor sticky, need to improve lighting in the bathroom, and one toilet not fit for use. My husband did not think the men’s bathroom seemed clean, and noticed waiters whose shorts were not clean either. All in all, a place I would return to for happy hour ( drinks and appetizers) but not to have dinner.
