Good experience

Pretty friendly and fun reception, not too expensive, very-very fast. A little sour an too wet steak for me, but in general - pretty good place.

We decided to try this since it was close to our hotel. Can't quite understand why it has mixed reviews but we were very happy with our choice. Staff was courteous, prompt, friendly and offered great recommendations on meal choice. It was a bit loud noise wise, but it's a small place and there was a large group next to... More

First of all - service was exceptional and fun! On a business trip with a group of 8 and they took great care of us! Food is fun - tasty and we always come back every year when in town. Just a neat place to go and relax and have some good authentic food!

The food was great, we had 10 members of our family at Dinner and nobody had a bad meal. My only advice would be t take it easy on the habenaro sauce, it's spicy

I hosted a small business dinner at Havana and they were very accommodating and helpful in setting it up, and the service once there was attentive but not pushy. All appetizers and entrees that were ordered got great reviews and overall price was quite reasonable. I look forward to returning with my wife.

My wife and I were on a one night February getaway in Chicago and doing some bar hopping on a late aftrnoon. Stumbled in for the Friday $20 Mojito pitcher special. Warm friendly bartender and patrons. Had a few appetizers, and everything was great. Try the chimichangas. Mojitos were awesome, as was the Guava Martini. After the second pitcher of... More

Wandered over here on a Saturday night in January with a friend who had been here before. We sat at the bar as the restaurant was quite busy. Service was excellent and the drinks were cold and tasty. Lots of great Cuban meal options and prices were very reasonable for downtown Chicago area. I tried the Havana pork which was... More

I was out walking around where my Chicago hotel was, looking for a casual place for dinner and came across Havana. The ambiance was warm and inviting, if a little loud. The mojitos were awesome! A great blend of flavors, not too sweet, and not short on rum. My server suggested Cuban Roast Pork (not pulled pork) as an authentic... More

i should start by saying that I am Cuban American from Miami so I might have set the bar high. Though being called Havana its a pan Latin restaurant and not a Cuban restaurant solely. The food was average. They do not have Materva, Iron Beer, or Jupina or worse never heard of them. The signs throughout the restaurant are... More
