Too many people lined up for take out alcoholic drinks in front of the stage. Blocking the view of the jazz performance. They didn’t seem to make the jazz performance high priority as the integrated part of the restaurant. The performance was excellent. They deserve to play at a better place until the restaurant pays more attention to their showcase. I went there because of the live jazz music and the food and to have an enjoyable evening. The food was good. This place can be liked the good time jazz restaurant in Savannah which is currently closed. In fact their food is better than good time jazz.

We've been wanting to go here for a while and so glad we did on our last visit. We are from South Florida and this is by far one of the best Cuban restaurants we have been to. Food was excellent, service was great. We were there on a Saturday night and the place was full. Really enjoyed the music which was great!! Can't wait to go back on our next visit!!

The staff was super friendly and definitely understanding considering it was NYE and we arrived late to our reservation. We had the Plato Mixto and the Vegetales Asados, both dishes looked like they were prepared with care and both were delicious. Can't wait to go back and sample the rest of the menu.

The hostess seemed a little frazzled and wasted time seating people. There were plenty of empty tables and she could have easily sat several parties at the same time, but she would sit one party, come back or go to the back and then sit another group etc. This was the first impression and it was strange. There were lots of groups waiting to be seated...
Our waiter was great, the drinks delicious and the food amazing. We had the lechon and the palomilla.
The jazz trio was really good. The only bad thing about that was that you could not really talk, but was good because you could just relax and listen to the music.

We were vacationing in Savannah for the weekend. Visited the restaurant last year for lunch and loved it so decided to come back this year for dinner. The music was fitting for the establishment, our waitress Ana was pleasant and never rushed us and the food the food was delicious. We highly recommend Rancho Alegre Cuban!!

Am happy for this place that they are celebrating being open for 20 years. We were excited to find a Cuban restaurant to go to in Savannah, since the one we loved in our city shuttered a number of years ago. Sadly, we were overall disappointed with our choice to go here. Unfortunately, their being around for two decades must be because there is no other Cuban restaurant in Savannah to compete with them. Although we found the service to be good, the prices on wine to be great and the ambiance to be fine (and enjoyed the jazz band on a Friday night), we thought the food itself to be mediocre Cuban fare compared to that we've had in other places. We were told that items on the menu, that failed to come with what was ordered, were due to suppliers discontinuing them. However, since the menus were at least a year old (it said that 2018 was their 19th year in business), that they could have had new menus printed, provided a disclaimer somewhere what items were no longer available or found new suppliers. Overall, so far as the food goes, we would have been better served getting something to go from Publix and eating in. Hopefully the restaurant is able to overcome the deficits they have, but until they do I would not recommend going there.

We arrived 10 minutes before our reservation and were seated right away. The dining area is unpretentious and tastefully decorated with wall hangings evocative of Cuba and the Caribbean. We were delighted to see a small stage with a live band performing jazz and blues numbers. Where can you have delicious Cuban food and listen to local musical talent and not pay a fortune in cover charges? We started with fried plantains and enjoyed grouper and paella valenciana for the mains. All generous portions: the paella was enough for two! My wife said she’d never had a better flan for dessert! The place doesn’t look like much from the outside but you will be happy you dined there.

I grew up in Miami and learned about Cuban food from two Cuban aunts when I was a boy. I have eaten at dozens of Cuban restaurants and most of the best ones have been in New York, Tampa and Miami.
The food at Rancho Alegre is genuine Cuban and all the choices I tried on a recent visit were very good. I found the bread served to be not like the Cuban bread I am used to having in Tampa, Miami or New York, but in fairness, I have not found good Cuban bread anywhere outside of those locations.
In all, it was a wonderful dining experience.
