Went with my parents and grandparents who had never had Cuban food before. Not only was the food great, but the portions were a really good size. Four of us ordered the pitcher of mojitos and the pitcher held enough for 1 1/2-2 drinks per person. The empanadas were worth ordering and everyone both liked their dishes and would order... More

The food and service we had there was very good. I was here actually on three separated occasions. Each time I was not disappointed with food and service. The only thing I can negatively about this place was the locations of the bathrooms. Can be a problem for a person who has trouble with stairs. The Mojito's are great, just... More

I recently visited this place while I was in Chicago for business and I loved it. The waiter was very attentive for what he was given on a pretty busy night. The food was great. I ordered my favorite of Ropa Vieja. It wasn't as seasoned as I'm used to, but that's more of a personal preference. All of their... More

On a recent trip to Chicago I saw the name of this restaurant and we decided to go for something different. The food was fantastic and the service was very good, even though they were packed. My wife was pregnant at the time and the server noticed we were in a very cramped booth and moved us to a larger... More

We visited Havana while vacationing in Chicago. The atmosphere was nice and the service was fantastic. The pulled pork and halibut was delicious! I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

I ordered a simple dish of carne asada after being overlooked by the wait staff for 30 minutes. To my horror I looked at this piece of meat swimming in a gloppy watery mess of rice and beans. The beans were hard and inedible the rice was just floating around.YUK! My friend order a great sounding menu item of pulled... More

My wife and I are fans of Cuban food. Unfortunately, we live in Michigan and there are few, of any Cuban restaurants. On a recent trip to Chicago, we found Havana. The Mojitos and Sangria were excellent and the Cuban pork was a delight. There was a smoky undertone to the beans and rice that made them complex and flavorful.... More

I was a bit suspicious that it was so easy to get a reservation on a Saturday night, and the restaurant was indeed never quite full. But I was pleased. The clientele was mostly 20-30-somethings, as was the staff. There were plenty of servers, and our waiter seemed to appear at the time we needed him. I'm no connoisseur of... More

Mojitos and Ceviche to toast receiving Chinese visa. Server had the rare talent of appearing exactly when needed, drinks were exceptional (a good mojito is hard to find), and the cevice was succulent. We were so taken with the place that we stayed for desert and espresso.

We popped in for just some small plates & drinks, and it was fabulous! We sat at the bar & gabbed a little with our server. I was introduced to caipirinhas, which are apparently THE drink of Brazil. Mighty tasty!
