I had not been to Havana 59 for a couple years. I always love their sea bass but unfortunately they had already 86’ed the bass. (Busy Thursday night). The waiter recommended the scallops and now I have another favorite! The reservations were ready when we arrived and the service and food was incredible. Business dinner with associates from San Franscisco and Chicago - everyone loved Havana 59!
Steaks were very good but drinks were quite overpriced.
The food and drinks were fantastic. They even threw in free desserts unprompted because they believed our food had taken longer than it should have because of a party upstairs. We hadn't even noticed! We'll definitely return soon.
Arrived with a reservation for a party of 9. Waited 20 minutes to be seated. Seated at 2 tables rather than 3 (apparently we were waiting for the 3rd table to empty), which was quite snug. The 2 tables had been available the whole time we were waiting. Waiter was helpful and polite. We waited almost an hour for our food. 1 person did not even receive theirs. The waiter said it would be out soon. When the rest of us were almost finished he told the manager to cancel his dish. He was told it would just be a few minutes. Waited another 10 minutes and again told the waiter to cancel the dish. The manager came over and was very apologetic but it was just too late. Luckily the entrees are hearty in portions so we shared with our hungry friend. Manager offered some free desserts. When the bills (split into 3 parties) came they were incorrectly split, although they each had a deduction of some sort on it. Had to wait more to fix the bill issue. Overall - the food was awesome; the staff were very pleasant but the mess-up really brought down the evening. Also, because we were in there so long (not by choice) some of us were really having problems with the smoke that drifted over from the bar - itchy, runny eyes, coughing, etc.
I'd go back for the food, but would hesitate after the evening's fiasco.
This restaurant is consistently fantastic. Amazing food - all 6 of us got something different and everyone LOVED their meal. The pork taste of havana and the chicken empanadas were amazing, as were the short ribs. The plantain nachos are my favorite appetizer! The service was absolutely terrific. Our waitress was friendly and food was served timely and fresh and hot. I LOVE this restaurant!
Staff were attentive and helpful. Food was good. Getting to the restaurant was hectic due to construction and parking; however, they can’t help that
Beautiful restaurant, lovely evening! Had a great time with friends, thank you for helping make my husbands birthday really special. He appreciated it. ❤️
Fun place serving authentic Cuban food and cocktails. Friendly staff.
Great way to spend an hour or so before a concert at The Coliseum.
I used to consider the food here as great, but I was greatly disappointed by my recent dining experience. The Paella for 2 was tasteless. There did not appear to be any evidence of Chorizo or chicken, and very few mussels or shrimp. Overall, very unlike a decent paella. Mojitos were okay, but not outstanding. Perhaps the current street work has driven away the previous good cooks and bartenders???
excellent food...great for smoking a cigar...décor is beautiful. always friendly staff and interesting food presentation. mojitos are extra special.
