This was my second visit since this restaurant reopened as Cucina Cabana. The first time things went fine, this second time was really embarrassing since we had encouraged another couple to join us. Long story short, the wine list has no years of the vintage listed, the entrees came out 45 minutes late after asking three times for it, and then the dishes came out luke warm to cold. That's a shame since they have invested a lot of money in the decor. They kept on pleading ignorance and that the meals would be coming out shortly, except that they didn't. We found out later that one of our dishes was dropped in the kitchen and had to be recooked. Why not be honest with the customer right from the beginning?
The couple at the next table stated that they had had a similar experience at their last attempt, but their meal did not show up for an hour, so they left. Our friends have stated firmly that they will not return to the restaurant.

We did not get to see the entertainment as the entertainer was sick. The restaurant is very pretty and the bar is a nice size. Perfect for Happy Hour as there is plenty of seating. Happy hour was great and the food choices on the happy hour menu were good and well priced. The bartenders were very personable and fun.

The early bird menu was nice, but it was ala carte so buying a dinner did not give you a salad to go with it, unlike other restaurants that price the early birds like a prix fixe menu.

The main dinner menu was very nice with plenty of items to chose from however, it is definitely on the high end. Everything is ala carte so if you want an appetizer and salad you have to factor that in as the dinner does not even include a salad.

The dinner menu pasta was way overpriced, $24 and up. I had the pasta and it was very good, but in my opinion not worth the price. Some of the pastas had clams or were with seafood or meat, but still the price was just too high. The happy hour pasta was $9 and the size was just a little smaller than the pasta on the dinner menu. While not as fancy as the dinner menu pastas, they were delicious.

I will go back as I want to enjoy the entertainment they offer.

Loved the atmosphere, service and food! A little disappointed with the $10. Sharing charge. Also, we thought we would get 1/2 price wine during the Happy Hour, but didn't, since we were at a table. $15 a glass for house wine, I thought was a little high. Overall, loved the food, so it was all good! Just cant go as often as I would like.

When we arrived we were seated quickly. We sat in the dining room towards the back. Where we were sitting you could see a door that led back to the kitchen area. While we were sitting there we heard a male server drop the F—- bomb loudly, and practice some unusual food handling. We thought about walking out and told our server Mia. Mia quickly got the manager Cheryl. Cheryl apologized for what we saw there for what he said. Cheryl stated this type of behavior is not typical of their staff and is not tolerated. Cheryl convinced us to stay and we had outstanding dinner. My wife and I both had the egg plant appetizer ( beyond excellent) and veal picatta and breaded veal scallopini (cut with a fork tender) , and for desert ice cream ball (really yummy) and tiramisu. Mia was an outstanding server and Cheryl was a very professional manager. I am glad we stayed and would recommend Cucina Cabana.

Absolutely horrible experience with a waiter who acted as if he was high or something. The owner came to see us on our way out after the hostess had asked about our server. Like other reviewers, there was a half baked apology with “next time you come back...” don’t expect to ever go back there.

Do go to Cucina Cabana if you want a lively atmosphere and good food. Don't go if you're seeking a quiet evening. Even on a Tuesday night off season the bar was packed and the music was loud. Our server, Cookie, was great. The food was delicious. Although, not inexpensive, the size of the portions is very generous. We will definitely be going back.

For a restaurant that is still relatively new they really have there act together ! The place is meticulous. The staff are well trained and knowledgeable before they wait on customers. Our waiter was in his own words a "very recent" addition. But he knew about everything on the menu and about the history of the restaurant, chef, owners etc. The décor is done with a high level of taste and there is provision for an extended Happy Hour, music, and a fairly extensive "bar bites" menu. There is a generous allocation of space for and between tables. The ceilings have sections of wood paneling to buffer the sound. There is free valet parking and get this--when you go to get your car there are comfortable chairs to sit in while you wait. I don't even have to tell you all that much about the authentic Italian cuisine. Obviously, any one who would put so much thought into making his customers have every convenience and amenity is going to serve a great meal!

Our experience was very pleasant. In the future we will get there in time for Happy Hour. The drinks otherwise can be pricey. Good but pricey. I liked the idea that one can order 1/2 a portion. I am not a big eater, so this idea is terrific.
All in all you will have a great evening of dining.

First time visit, after being recommended by friends. Was a special date night dinner with husband, so had high expectations for the evening. Cucina Cabana did not disappoint. Lively atmosphere, was seated straight away in bar dining room. They had live entertainment that evening which was a gentleman singing mainly Frankie Valli, he was brilliant! Mia was our server, and she too was wonderful. Dinner started off with great cocktails and fresh garlic bread which was superb. I ordered the veal scallopine, my husband had the pork chop. Both were very good, the only slight reason for not giving higher rating was both meals were quite salty. Have been back since and asked specifically for low / no salt and was pleased. Highly recommended for special night out with friends, business clients or significant other as live music with supper club vibe is a hit. POSHPADZ Luxury Properties gives this one a thumbs up to visit!

Overall, I like Cucina Cabana. It has a great menu with a wide variety for foodies: a number of salads and lighter fare along with heavier pasta and meat dishes. The quality of the food is good. The bar scene is fun and lively with musical entertainment, but if you want a quiet dinner, reserve on the quieter restaurant side.

Three out of four dinners were delicious and generously plated. My dinner was tasty but not much to eat on my plate. Chicken piccata was plated in a very small portion and cost $25.00. Service was mediocre. Great and lively entertainment, Ray Chang was delightful. The manager only reduced my meal by $5.00.
