Food was great with safe seating. Celebrated two birthdays and the sax player played Happy Birthday and cake was given to the guests. Excellent experience and food will return soon.

Very good Cuban food and great cocktails. The best we’ve had in Louisville and comparable to good Cuban food we’ve had in other parts of the country.

Absolutely perfect! I’ve tried to keep up with Louisville’s food scene and very few places take the time for detail like La Bodeguita de Mima’s! The food and drinks were amazing! Would be a great place for date nights, fun birthday dinners, or just a nice but fun night out!

Shelia was great! Definitely recommend her as a server!!

The service and food were outstanding. Loved the pork with yucca in garlic sauce and the churrasco was to die for. Will be back - this was my fifth visit:-). Could turn the music down a touch but that’s my only complaint. Yum!

Our first visit - we enjoyed the food and drinks and service was great - everything we ordered was delicious. Our only gripe is they need to manage the people who are waiting for tables better. People were crowding around the front door and hostess area, and eventually people started coming to the bar to order drinks and removing their masks - right where were seated at a high top- this invalidated the perfectly acceptable social distancing they had established by spacing the tables out. The manager cleared people away from us after I asked, but more people came right in behind them. We finally boxed up our food and left. Bartenders need to stop serving guests at the bar and they should make people wait outside until their table is ready. What started as a great experience became very uncomfortable.

Food was good. Ceviche wasn’t traditional, but good. Cubano was excellent. The only thing we didn’t enjoy was how loud it was with the conversation and a saxophone player. It was entirely too loud to hold a conversation.

Too loud. Guy playing sax on 2nd floor near our table. We moved to the other room to avoid music and huge loud party with language that should not have been shouted. Music was good, very very loud and no rugs or
Anything to absorb sound. Food great and value food but rarely been in place so loud
