This restaurant has traditional Cuban food. Their food is great. Nice place to take the family or friends. Everything they make tastes good, so you can have any dish without a problem. Recommend it highly.

Back many years ago Molina's had great food. I just visited recently to find out the service and food quality has deteriorated. I do not recommend it.

I live a few blocks away and would love for this place to be better. Its gets worse every time. Went for breakfast and here are the issues: 1. Tostada is limp. Its the worse cuban toast I've ever had. 2. The water tasted like clorox! 3. Service is slow and they dont pay attention to you. They had me... More

I order 4 orders to go and they were trying to charge like 1.25 per piece of bread. They are so so ridiculous never going back.

Took colleagues to this place and there wasn't one plate that wasn't cleaned off. I opted for the churrasco steak (skirt steak) served with chimichurri sauce. Well seasoned white rice and savory black beans and sweet perfectly caramalized plaintains. Great prices for the portions. Simply delicious. Would go again and certainly bring clients. Friendly and prompt service. Finished off our... More

The service and food are excellent. Great Cuban coffee and fried lobster. The traditional cuban pork was very good. The croquettes are worth the visit!
