My husband and I walked into Havana's around 930 pm. It was pretty busy but the hostess said there was immediate seating available on the patio so we took it. After she seated us, about 15 minutes passed and someone brought us water. Then 10 minutes passed and we decided we ought to go remind them we were out there... More

Really nice restaurant with classic cuban food. We hade different dishes but all tasted very good. Service fast and pleasant. Crowded and could have a long queue but waited at bar and it didn't take long before we had a table.

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
