We went on a Friday night arriving at 7 and we're told the wait was an hour. We said that was fine as my girlfriend had been once before for lunch and raved about the food. We went for a quick walk and grabbed coffee and tea across the street so stay warm and help pass the time. Around 740... More

Should have known we were not going to have a good experience at this restaurant when we walked in and the HOST was yelling in the ear of a patron to "GET OUT, we don't need your business". Apparently she wanted a table for 7 people (NO RESERVATIONS can be made) I'm not sure what the issue was but there's... More

This is a great restaurant. The atmosphere is excellent as is the food. The Ribs and the Almond stuffed bacon wrapped dates appetizers were crazy good. We will most certainly be returning!!!

Great Cuban food. Nice place and staff. I did the pork with mango and garlic. It came with rice and plantains. I'd definitely recommend it and would come back!

My 10 yr old grandson and I had dinner before the show here. He saw the palm trees outside as we walked past and thought this is where we should eat. It has a real Cuban decor, with hanging pictures and wait staff dressed to set the mood. They don't serve alcohol, so I ordered two non alcoholic sangrias.The waiter... More

The food, drinks, and service were fantastic! And, the decor/atmosphere makes you feel like you're in Cuba. I will return and would definitely recommend!

ATMOSPHERE! wow! You feel like you're sitting in a cafe in, you guessed it, Cuba! You can't beat the courtyard with the facades and retro-clothed servers. You bring your own whatever, which you can mix with their giant pitchers of fruit-flavor, but I think I'll stick with bringing wine next time. Their mixers are quite sweet and probably all sugar....

This is the place to go if you do not want to have a conversation with anyone sitting at your table. The food was excellent, but both my husband and I left with headaches and unfortunately were unable to have any sort of quality conversation with our teenagers due to how loud the music blasting through the speakers was.
