The service was polite and accommodating but incredibly slow. We observed several tables either request their meal to go or cancel their order and walk out. I was preparing to leave when our food arrived. The tuna I ordered was cooked precisely as ordered, but the flavors were underwhelming and portions were small.
Glad we came in. It was a good time and great food! Loved the ambiance
We had reservations there prior to a show at the Tobin Center. Weather was below freezing and restaurant has glass on 3 sides so not comfortable for those temperatures. Server, Amber, was fine although extremely busy and it was tough to get her attention.
Soup was cold and brought out before wine. Tostada and ceviche were salty with no other seasonings.
Bar is in the middle of the restaurant and bar patrons were allowed to stand in the aisle making it difficult for servers to pass without bumping into my chair.
Second visit here and we will not return.
Expected more from the description on their website. The empanadas were very good. The churros were crispy yet tender and had the right amount of cinnamon sugar - the lemon curd added the perfect zing. The Cuban sandwich was just so so and their beef steak a little disappointing. Setting was cold despite the heaters they had - probably a lovely place on a warmer night/ day
We had a quiet private room that was fun and cozy with a great view of the river. Food was excellent and they were very accommodating of gluten free requests. Great service too! Would definitely visit again!
Drinks were weak. Food was a strange mix of Mexican and American, but lacked flavor. The ambience was cute but I would not return for the value and service.
THis is a great place to go for a drink in warm weather but the restaurant was disappointing. The food was just ok and waiter was not able to answer questions about the food or drinks.
Great service, but the food terrible. I am not coming back.
We were seated by the front entry on a cool night, every time someone came in, we were hit with a blast of cool air. We asked to be re-seated but were told that all the other tables were taken. Other than that, we had a great time, good food, good service.
Went on a Monday evening in December and were sat almost immediately. Highly recommend the Cuban - and also the empanadas. Enjoy!
Lovely room - close to the Tobin Center where we were headed to see a concert. Food was only OK - patatas bravas had a delicious sauce but were undercooked and oversalted, empanadas were good but also very, very salty, happy hour quesadilla was tiny but fine, caldo branco was funky (and not in a good way) and again, very, salty. The burger (frito) was OK - just meat and shoestring potatoes, but the beef was quality and it was seasoned and cooked nicely. The cuban sandwich was ridiculous - not even close. Not too expensive, but the service will keep us from returning. Unprofessional...we actually walked up to the bar to refill our own water. Our server had a terrible attitude, whenever she was actually near...which was rare. Can't recommend.
Was very disappointed in a restaurant named one of the "World's Most Gorgeous Glass Restaurants." It was so dark in the restaurant the menu couldn't be read. The service was hap hazard. The bar had a large white plastic ice bucket on it the entire time. I expected a craft cocktail and instead got a completely substandard drink. We left after the appetizer (empanadas) which were quite good but not worth enduring the experience for an entire dinner. I felt like I was eating in a makeshift restaurant with a patio brick floor and walls that let all the cold outside air in.
Not for me.
At SABCS convention
Crap. Packed house, at least 4 groups with reservations could not get seated. Service was even worse.
Definitely not returning to this dive
No hostess stand. Was told by the bartender it was open seating. Found a table and had to go find a server. Menu was sparse and they were out of 5 things. This was a disappointment since I love the Havana Hotel. Ended up leaving before placing any order.
Amazing atmosphere. Perfect for a date night. Food was excellent. Portions are moderate leaving room for an amazing dessert. Will be back.
Limited menus. Seats at window very cold. Others were available but would not give four top to two away from window. Plain fare but well prepared.
Amazing food and amazing service. Off the beaten path and totally worth it. The margaritas are the best I have had in the city.
This was our 2nd time at Ocho. We previously went for brunch and found the location special and scenic. The brunch food and coffee were delicious. We went back for dinner and enjoyed it just as much. The food was interesting and tasty. The cocktails were creative and delicious and the service was great. Can't wait to go back again!
