Went for a group get-together on a Saturday night and everyone loved it. The food was so, so delicious! Every single serving from appetizers to dessert was very tasty. You felt very warm and cozy inside the place, like you were enjoying Cuban comfort food with family and friends. The drinks did not disappoint either, with mojitos, sangria, and various... More

Teetering on 2.5 stars but since it's the holiday season, I'm feeling generous so I'll bump it up to a 3. Two friends and I came in on a Saturday at noon with a reservation. Turns out, the reservation was completely unnecessary because the place was pretty much empty except for a table or two. It was probably still a... More

We went here on a recommendation from friends who know Cuban food and I have to say that the recommendation was an excellent one. Our server was such a personalble guy who took interest in our opinion of the food and restaurant. The food came out in a timely manner and the appetizer and main meal were nicely spaced apart....

This place is everything you want in a Cuban restaurant. In their main room they have live music(it might just be on Friday and Saturday I'm not sure) and the people playing are great! The drinks are great both mixed and wine. And the best part, the food. I'm addicted to the ropa vieja they serve which is served in... More

I liked being at this restaurant. Its a cool place with interesting people. We stopped for a (very) quick bite before seeing a show at IRT down the street. The food was average though, weighed-down by a very pretentious waiter.
