Our server Levy did a spectacular job! The food, including dessert, was delightfully delicious. The live saxophone player added a chic touch to an already exquisite and jovial dining environment.

We were very impressed by La Bodeguita de Mina. The staff and ambience were delightful. We felt like we we were in Cuba. The food was outstanding, especially the fresh hot bread and drinks. Ask for their special drinks. Tastes were spot on, but I was expecting the pollo mojo to be a half chicken on the bone with skin. It tasted good but it was skinless filets. The flan for dessert was amazing though!!

The food and service were excellent! Our server did a great job of answering any questions we had about the menu, and the bartender even came out to talk about their rum selections. The atmosphere is perfect for date night without the kids, but we also plan to bring them along next time because the food is incredible.

We will be back. It was Valentine's Day evening and the crowd was pretty big, but we were seated immediately (per our reservation). Our server was fantastic and the food/drink was fabulous. Our favorite part was the interior decor - a lot of thought and planning went into the layout - a very enjoyable experience.

We had a nice dinner. Because of social distancing on a busy night we were seated in a heated, enclosed deck. Unfortunately, cold air crept into the enclosure from under the deck making the dining experience less than ideal. I will try again on a night when we can experience the restaurant in the main dining area.

We went for Valentines and all the food and drinks were excellent! We chose the special menu that included empanadas and seafood paella. The mojito, margarita and the Old Havana Fashion were all excellent drinks! The service was prompt even if the server was not overly friendly and barely spoke, but the food all came out lightning fast! We will definitely return!

We were recommended to go to La Bodeguita De Mima by a local and it was an amazing experience. The décor, the ambiance is very fun and lively. The food portions are great and great for the value. We got Ropa Vieja en Lata & Vaca Frita, both delicious. We also shared the shrimp ceviche, which was in a tomatoe sauce. Really tasty. I'd suggest more tostados or chips but it was great.
Our server was friendly and nice.
One of the best mojitos I've ever tasted. Highly recommend La Bodeguita De Mima.

The ambiance was second to none. As soon as I walked in, I was greeted with a friendly welcome, great hospitality. The service was top notch from everyone, hostess:waiter:manager. They worked together as a team and everyone helped each other. And the food, oh my! It was phenomenal. Both meals and appetizer exceeded expectations. I will be back!
