I expected much better quality food for this price. The service was good but the food was sub par. Absolutely no wow factor in this price range (3 entree's and an appetizer with 2 drinks for $100). When you pay these prices you expect much much more. Tea was old and soured, steak was chewy (poor quality), callimari was dry... More

Havana's was a good meal for the money. We enjoyed sitting on the porch for our meal but some ceiling fans would have been nice. The appetizer was much more food than we expected however the dinner itself left something to be desired in the presentation, quanitity and quality.

Our family members enjoy a good meal, but each person has strong preferences for certain kinds of food. Havanas was a great place for us - where we ate outside and enjoyed pasta, seafood, and salads that were well prepared and nicely presented. Our waiter was excellent and we were all surprised at how quickly the meals were delivered. A... More

We stopped for drinks and I had a bikini martini. I loved it! We will be back for every future visit to CB. The decor was classy, yet casual.. and our bartender was very attentive.

Our server Taylor was on point ...Sonoma Cutrer vino chilled and served perfectly, the dinner rolls and herb butter a perfect start to a delicious meal. Shrimp and scallop fettuccini is a typical chain food staple (translate boring) but this cream sauce was divine. Crab cakes and orzo, delicious. Chocolate cherry cake slice a must have for sharing! Thumbs way... More

Great service by Dana. Friendly management (Danny). Award winning chowder and my husband claimed it was better then Legal Seafood which was always his number one! Good food. Would recommend.

Bad service, waitress could have cared less. Served the beer to our guests without a glass, just plunked the bottles on the table and walked away. Rude, you don't serve beer to a lady without a glass, NEVER! Food was so over spiced you could not eat it. Someone else served all of our food. Waitress did not check to... More

I've eaten here before when I've been in town but I really think it has gone downhill. It took a long time to get our food and when my seafood salad arrived it had just three shrimp and two scallops over a large amount of lettuce. It cost almost $13! That's ridiculous. I came home as fast as I could... More

Being from Wilmington we like to try all the new restaurants as they open, especially those on Pleasure Island since we live nearby. We've been here twice and finally determined there's a reason the locals don't frequent this place... the portion sizes for a man are very small. My husband left hungry, which is not what we expected after a... More
