Authentic Cuban, very good food

My S/O and I were looking for a place to eat on a Friday evening before seeing a film at Colonial 18 across the street. We tried a couple of other spots that we knew were good, but either the wait was WAY too long, or the service was horrible (we walked out of another place when they ignored us... read more

We went for dinner one night with two other couples. Having never been there, we were excited to try a place we had heard such good things about. While the overall experience wasn't awful, it wasn't a good one either. It took a very long time to get our food, and when it arrived, it was below average. I should... More

I have been coming to lunch at papi's with coworkers for a couple years. The last few times I have been here I've been disappointed the food does not taste the same and the service takes too long.

My coworkers and I frequent this location and it is rare that I ever leave less than 100% satisfied. Even when I had an experience where the food wasn't up to the normal quality, they sent me home with my second favorite item and didn't charge me for either. The service can be hit or miss and that's the only... More

This was my first time dining at Papi's, and my first time having Cuban food. It was a really enjoyable experience. The staff were friendly and courteous, and my server did a good job of explaining the food to me. I had a sampler plate of appetizers, which gave me some different flavor experiences. The empanada on that plate was... More

The environment was great but the service was awful. Every time we ask for service the waiter had an attitude. Like it at first but will not recommended.

I have been in Cuba a lot, and this place is an American escape to Cuba in one place. Food taste really good and has the flavor or a topical Cuban food. Service is a little bit slow, but they seems to be always busy. The menu offers several authentic and traditional Cuban dishes. Is not too pricy. The staff... More
