My wife and I enjoyed this restaurant. The jazz band was great. Food was good but a little overpriced to us. Compared to similar restaurants we've tried. Still a great date night idea. We'll visit again

THE BEST Cuban food I've ever had! The staff were friendly and recognized us on our second trip back--gave us a warm welcome. Each time we were there, they had two fabulous bands playing. We're from out of town... but if we lived in Savannah, Rancho Alegre would be our go-to weekly restaurant for date nights.

Food was quite disappointing, there was not very much to each plate that we ordered. All it was was rice and beans with a scoop shredded beef, .They also forgot to provide us with one of our sides until the check came.

This was our number 1 choice to host dinner for relatives coming in for our daughter's SCAD graduation. Living in Miami they know their Cuban cuisine and they LOVED Rancho Allegre. We've been dining at RA since we first stumbled upon it Freshman year in 2014. Every visit to Savannah we make RA one of our stops. The chicken soup is out of this world. Staff was so very kind in accommodating our large group. And no one seemed to mind when my daughter and I enjoyed dancing to the live music. We had a great celebratory evening at RA. So very glad we opted to go there on this occasion. Thanks Rancho staff!

A Cuban restauran with a Jazz live music? No señor. You need to have a real Cuban environment. Plus real Cuban food. The food was good but missing key Cuban dishes. If you can’t find Cuban or Puerto Rican musicians the least you should have is a Latin music station.

Didn't actually get to eat because they did not honor my Open Table reservation, and when I got to the restaurant with a confirmed reservation, they said it would be a 30 to 40 minute wait. When I mentioned I had a reservation, the person just shrug and said, there's nothing I can do! - and that was not the first time this has happened to me -

I normally love this restaurant but this evening was disappointing. Service was uneven at best. Lechon asado was overcooked and dry. Maybe it was just an off night...

Thoughtful and friendly service and a very enjoyable place to eat. Host/owner? sat us very close to live band (we had teenagers with us) and it was too loud. Another patron waved us over to inform us they were just leaving so we moved to a better spot where we could talk with more ease. Energetic place with great energy so I’d highly recommend.
