Ever since the owners of this restaurant split their partnership and CASAVANA Cuban restaurant have seeing a decline in visitors , this place used to be called Sergio's but as we as customers have heard that the partners split and the remaining partner stayed at this location & changed the name to CASAVANA . The food is always oily ,... More

We had ordered several "Croqueta Preparada" sandwich and were totally in surprised when the bill came. For that price we should have just ordered a complete meal. What happened? The sandwich was good, but not the price. I would have preferred the complete meal. Found other place just as good a cheaper. Sorry, had to take my business somewhere else.... More

Went in on my lunch with my family. Sat down for 20 minutes without an acknowledgement from the staff, not even water. Tables around us were already getting served even after we had been there for quite a while. Once the wait staff told the waitress, she said out loud she was not going to help us, but she started...

I was there for breakfast, I order scrambled eggs with ham on the side and churros. The eggs & ham were acceptable. The churros looked very good but, when I tasted them... they were disgusting! They were fried in old, very old oil and tasted like old-burnt oil. OJ was ok. The place is very noise.

I went there with my son for dinner. We had the chicken empanada and chicken milanessa. Both were fresh and had freat flavor. The plantains (tostones) were really crispy and fresh. As always the rice and beans had that authentic flavor that is only found in the Cuban cuisine. And to finish a good meal, Cuban coffee and a flan.... More

The shrimp was well cooked and delicious. The special mahi mahi was dry and had too much cheese over it. Service was friendly and good. If I went back, I'd have the shrimp.

My wife and I dined here with no Cuban food experience. We went with the wait person's recommendations. My wife had the Cuban chicken sandwich, I had a pork dish, the name of which escapes me now. They were fantastic! We also enjoyed a couple of Café con Leche's. The price was reasonable, and we had left overs.
