It was the first time my wife ate dinner at Alma de Cuba. The dinner was delicious with a great Cuban flare.

I had dinner here solo at the bar while traveling for work. The food was creative, fresh, and expertly prepared. Drink menu was fun and reasonably priced. Service was friendly and my server was able to provide good recommendations from the menu as well as for the area I general (I asked since I’m from out of town). The decor and ambiance are sophisticated and chic. Overall a wonderful little spot, and I’ll definitely be back!

I visited Alma de Cuba during restaurant week and I was very impressed about the quality of the food, the kindness of the waiters and the location itself. I had a really nice shrimp ceviche, then chicken as main, and a chocolate dessert. Everything impeccable!
Well done!!

Anytime we have friends from out of town come to visit us in Philly, Alma is a go-to. Flavorful food, great drinks, cool atmosphere. But the snootiness of our waitress did not go unnoticed, and we mentioned this to the manager as well. As for the food, our favs are the lechon asado, branzino, plantains and empanadas.

We visited as a business group. The appetizers were good, but the main course was not as good. The service was a bit slow but the waiter was very kind and well spoken. Overall, as a vegetarian, there was nothing I could savor and enjoy. But based on the reviews of my colleagues and a surprise dessert at the end, it was an average experience.
