We had not been at Havanna for a couple years. We had enjoyed our experience before better. This time we had not felt welcomed and our service was not as good. Music was too loud and the candles on the table were not lit. Food was OK.

Let me say first I'm not a foodie. Food for me has always been something you do just to stay alive. But on a recent trip to Chicago my wife and I found the restaurant Havana. It's a nice place not great but very comfortable , a place that makes you feel at ease . When our waiter asked if... More

You would expect bold colors and sounds at a Cuban restaurant, but this restaurant was more quaint and romantic. Probably more like it truly is in Cuba - instead of a caricature. I had the Carne Con Tequila and loved the chimichurri. My girlfriend had the Havana Roasted Pulled Pork - the roasted cream corn made the dish! Get the... More

Really enjoyed our meal here. The atmosphere was very relaxing and very Cuban. The drinks were awesome. Delicious Caipirinhas!! The service was excellent. We ordered the empanada appetizer, the Cuban salad and the Cuban sandwich and got the chocolate cake for dessert. Every was very tasty and generous portions.

I went here a few nights ago for a birthday dinner and had a great experience! It's down the street from my apartment and I always walk by and love the Latin music playing outside, it puts you in a good mood no matter what! Our group sat on the patio and enjoyed the music mingled with the sounds of... More

Many of the Chicago bars do free-pour drinks. These guys don't, but the atmosphere is pleasant and the staff are friendly. It's a good place for a drink if you're waiting for a table at the excellent Frontera Grill just down the street.

Came here with the Mrs., to try and break up the Pizza Tastings while staying on an extended weekend in Chicago. When assessing a bar at a restaurant I tend to inspect the shelf to see what they are serving. I was impressed to see that Jose Cuervo GOLD was NOT within the Tequila selection. This is generally a good... More

Wow, the drinks at this place is strong. The service was really good, the interior makes you feel like you're in Cuba, great place to have drinks and socialise. We didn't have food here but it appears to be a popular location for the locals which is a good sign. Recommend coming here and trying their mojito pitcher.

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
