Excellent service and delicious food. They know their Cuban staples: the ropa and the Cubano are exactly what you're looking for. The flan was equally delicious, light and spongy. Topping off the experience was an excellent Cuban trio performing live on and off throughout the evening. Can't miss!

We went to Amor Cubano early on a quiet evening. The food was very good, and our server was warm and extremely attentive. We were six people, and we had a main dish and a drink each, and we shared a few appetizers and a couple of desserts. Some of us also had coffee. Our bill was more than $350, and the prices on the menu were higher than what was posted on the restaurant website, which we checked just before leaving home. If you can enjoy music and entertainment these prices may be well-justified; however, we found them way too expensive for the food and neighborhood.

We had dinner at Amor Cubano last weekend, and really enjoyed ourselves.

The Ropa Vieja, shredded steak with onions and peppers served with white rice and black beans, was absolutely delicious, perfectly spiced, one of the best I have ever had.

My companion had the Tilapia, which was much less successful, a bit over-cooked and rather tasteless.

My beer was cold and delicious; her mango mojito was very good.

The band was in great form, and the crowd seemed to really enjoy itself.

This was my second visit to Amor Cubano. We went with a group of 8 and we were very pleased with the food and service. Our waitress Ellie was amazing! She's a good salesperson too! Lol. The prices aren't too expensive. If you're looking for a place with good food, live music, and good location this is the place. Parking was easy to find as well.

I do have two suggestions for this place which would make it even better. One is set up a bigger dance floor. People want to dance when they come to a place like this especially with a live band. My second suggestion is to organize when people have song requests. We requested a song with one of the bartenders and after almost 45 mins they finally played the song but after 30 seconds of the song it was cut short and never played again while we there. That disappointed a few people in our group.

Other than those 2 things, we enjoyed our time at this restaurant and recommend it for others.
