Used to love this place but last Sunday will be my last visit, ordered La Rumba. The shreeded beef and the picadillo were overly salty, the tostones tasted like they had set out for hours. Absolutely horrible service. Waitress actually told me they were out of tea when I requested a refill. I will be searching for a new Cuban... More

This is one of my go-to favorites for Latin cuisine. I was introduced to Café Piquet more than 7 years ago and since then they have expanded into a larger building. The décor is warm, inviting, yet unpretentious. The service is good; I think all the servers are bilingual (English/Spanish). Many of them have been there since I started going... More

Our large party booked a table on an early Saturday night - the place was filling up fast. We had 2 servers for our table and they kept mixing up the orders. The food was delicious. The calamari was fresh, crisp and delicious. We shared the appetizer plate with empanadas, ham croquets, plantain chips and papas rellenas - potato stuffed... More

My family celebrated a birthday dinner here - a Saturday night. It had been years since my last visit (my brother-in-law's birthday choice-he is Cuban; he & his wide visit often). Our party of 14 had reservations & were seated quickly in the middle of the restaurant. The place was very busy & noisy. The service was almost non-existent- many... More

A fantastic place to order a bottle of wine and meet your friends at. I have had several dishes there and I can't complain.

What a place, the atmosphere is great, the servers all bilingual and professional. The food excellent, the amount they serve will feed two normal persons, top it with the cuban coffee and flan and you may explode. Awesome place to eat Cuban food.

We stopped in with co-workers and it was their first visit. We love it and knew they would too and we were right. Everyone just raved how good it was and how quickly we were served. We also tried the flan and it was out of this world. We capped it off with a cup of coffee cob leche and... More

I remember when this place was a food counter in a small grocery store. Then they converted it to a full on restaurant and it's grown and grown over the years. The gentleman who ran it for years and years passed away a few years back but last time I went his wife was still there looking over everything. The... More

I had totally forgotten about Café Piquet. I hadn't been there in years (since I lost y parents) and had forgotten the taste of authentic Cuban food... the mariquitas, Arrozcongri, and sandwhich the media noche (midnight sandwich) Yummo. Great place to go for a nice Cuban meal.

I was in town visited some family members and my wife wanted to give Cafe Piquet a try, was in the mood for some good Cuban food, so I said why not. We were sitted right away, it was lunch time so there was a crowd coming in but our waiter was very attentive and described the items on the... More
