Just roll me out the door!

Ten of us had an incredible meal last night at Casual Habana Cafe. We all left stuffed from all the great food we were served. We chose to eat family style and share the multiple appetizers and entrees to get the maximum experience of the food. There was so much food we had no room on the table. We... read more

Place was cool, felt as if the portions were smaller than Expected. waited 5 minutes before I was even acknowledged at the door where there was no one else waiting. Once at our seats 3 different people approached us, very unorganized. Got rushed to order- didn't even give us hot bread as everyone around us did. Had to ask for... More

Great place! Bring your own wine or beer and enjoy a lovely dinner! So many choices! I had a skirt steak that was really tasty. It is a charming place with street parking and nice atmosphere. Even if you want salad, there are many choices. The 2 sides that come with your meal are a nice touch. I bet dessert... More

At first, I thought I had just lucked out because the food here was so good. Last week was my fourth trip to this place; three dinners and one lunch. I have not been disappointed yet. They have a great selection of appetizers. I am particularly fond of the ceviche, coconut shrimp and the beef/chorizo sliders are sublime. There are... More

Went there on a Friday night with a bottle of wine and had a great time. Started off with the ceviche and then had the lechon which was outstanding. My fiancé had the ox tail which was also wonderful. Finished off with the tres leche and left completely happy. Don't miss this place!!

I was told by a friend of this establishment and made reservations the same day, what GREAT SPANISH FOOD! The restaurant plays excellent Spanish music and has exposed red weathered brick walls giving it sense of warmth and the coolest ceiling fans I've ever seen. Although I have never been to Cuba the restaurant had that feel, very cool. The... More

This Cuban spot has a great combination of good food and great atmosphere. The owner Benny always comes out and greets the diners if he is there. The food and service is very good as well as the prices. This is the perfect date night spot!!
