Ok so we ordered abottle of wine because the by glass ones were your $7 a bottle and we dont appreciate cheap wine. So the wife orders the crab cakes. When she takes the first bite she lets out a big YUK! She ask me to taste and I was literally shocked. Curry! Not a little but a over powering... More

We ended up here after trying to go out for dinner with our visiting family on a holiday weekend without a reservation,not a smart move on our part. All popular restaurants in the area we tried had an hour or two wait, but when we arrived at Havana's the place seemed too empty for a Saturday night, a few customers... More

I was in the evening of July 5th with my wife. We found this place by accident. We didn't receive a very warm welcome when we walked in, but we were sat upstairs and were then greeted by Shauna. What a lovely lady! She's personable, knowledgable and overall just a pleasant and attentive waitress. We ordered the steak tips and... More

We were the only ones at the restaurant at 5 pm so I can't comment on what service is like with a full house. Our waiter was a likable young man. We had the Coca Cola steak tips and a pasta dish called the French Quarter. Contained shrimp, chicken, and andouille sausage over linguine. Had a nice cream sauce with... More

We visit Wilmington fairly often and enjoy trying the wonderful array of restaurants in the area, but sometimes you just want something tried and true... that's Havana's. Havana's has an adequate bar with prices that are in line with the area, but we have found it to be best to stick with basic cocktails, and not get too fancy in... More

Everyone in our party was impressed. Food, service, and drinks were great. I'd go back again, next time in the area.

I wrote a review last year about how great this place is. Now I take it back. New chef, new manager .....terrible. They have a long way to go to get back on track to what they were last year. Have tried them twice in the last week. Definatly not the value / taste or good food for the money.... More

After reading the reviews we went expecting good, if not great, food. It was mediocre at best. We ordered and weren't even given bread when all the other tables had it. We were still eating our salads when they brought our dinner. My husband had the swordfish special, which came blackened, which was a tiny piece. It tasted so fishy... More

Havana's in Wrightsville has a charming covered porch that gets the morning sun and they've done a nice job of disguising the nearby road so you feel like you've truly stepped away. Their brunch menu was limited, offering neither basics like eggs and toast nor particularly inventive dishes compared to other restaurants in the immediate area. We let our server... More

Havana's has become our favorite restaurant for Sunday night dinners. We look forward to sitting at the bar, spending time with Brooke while she makes our drinks and serves our wonderful food. The best Mojitos and Cosmos! Visit Havana's! Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
