It was nice to be able to be out after being quarantined for so long. The place was great, but we waited 20 minutes from being seated before someone came to our table and took our order. Overall, Havana is always a good place to go to, food is always delicious and will definitely come back to visit again.

Unfortunately the food was lukewarm and the plate was hot.. I suppose that means microwaved? I normally love the food there and it is usually hot, but not this time.

Since we are only allowed to dine outdoors it would have been nice if they purchased more umbrellas for the out door dining. It was very hot out and tables were unbearable to touch. Service was mediocre took 45 min for us to get a drink and another hour for our food. Everyone was coming and going but us and when asked manager he said our order was up on the board. Not sure what that meant but when asked server to check on food he went in and Never came back out.

Thank you for dining with us. We take every concern to heart and are very glad to announce we have since added more umbrellas. We knew we needed more coverage after the initial opening and now have many more options for diners looking for shade. That said I am sorry to hear about your service. Certainly no excuse for such a wait and unlike us. Would like to make this up to you and will be sending a private note!

Jacqueline thank you for dining with us. I'm sorry to hear the churrasco and cocktails were not impressive. Certainly not the impression we would have liked to make. We would be happy to remake any dish or drink if it's not to your liking so please do not hesitate to let us know should that happen again. That said we hope to show you a 5 star time from the start!

Salmon dish and Ropa Vieja were good. I had the garlic shrimp and it was bland. The tostones were terrible, they were hard as a rock! Overall I thought the portions were small and it was overpriced. We spent $170 with tip for 1 appetizer, 2 cocktails, 3 main dishes, 3 sides and 2 desserts. I wanted to love it but unfortunately it was not that great where I’d go back and spend almost $200. No thanks, there’s way better restaurants out there!

Katie we are so glad you enjoyed your salmon & ropa vieja! We are sorry to hear the other dishes were a let down though. Were you able to alert your waiter so they could bring you something new or adjust the bill? We only wish for satisfied guests and are happy to remake anything to your liking. We do hope you might give us a second chance as we know we can impress.

Waitress was excellent. Entree (mariscos) was tasty but the queso appetizer was okay. Worst part was check. There were 4 people behind the desk - only 1 checked people in, 1 showed guests to their tables, and 2 actually just stood there and did not interact with the customers at all.

It was our anniversary. The food was great and the drinks too. The food came out too fast, we didn’t finish with our spritzers and our main course came. It was very delicious.
The band was playing so it was loud, and we sat next to where they kept pulling plates, it was disturbing and loud. But we had a great time and the food was amazing.

This is my 14 year grandson’s favorite restaurant. We come here often. I tried a different dish today. The pernil asada. It was great. The marinated onions gave it a nice kick. He had the mango salmon and enjoyed it. Our waitress Vanessa was awesome. She gave us suggestions for our next visit. Looking forward to dining real soon!
