“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We visited this past Friday for happy hour and wind up staying for dinner. The service was excellent, lead by Spencer the bartender. The appetizers were all good and fresh, as well as the large Cuban sandwich which we split. We ate at the bar, a beautiful and very traditional Cuban bar. The live music was Cuban, traditional Cuban music, by Havana Soul, inviting one to dance. The place was packed and very lively. The wine list by the glass can use some improvement by adding more French and Spanish wines, but everything else was very good. They take care of every detail and you can tell that they want their food to be the best. Service could not be better. We will definitely be coming back soon.

“Cuban American Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

As a Cuban American born and raised in Miami but living in Marco Island , It's hard to keep up with the Miami Crowd and new spots. I will share that I have found a home away from home!
This Restaurant/Bar/Dance club is an amazing place to come and eat real Cuban Cuisine by an amazing Chef Nick! You can feel the fun and dedication that the owners have for Azucar.
If you want to have an amazing time, dance , fun and eat Cuban Cuisine this is the place to be in Coral Gables, my favorite is Friday Nights! Highly Recommended!

“Another Cuban restaurant in Miami”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

A reasonably priced Cuban "wanabe" restaurant. Not the typical homemade Cuban cuisine... more into the fashionable international taste. Do not expect the major characteristics of local Cuban restaurants: big portions and low prices. The menú includes as well a variety of "tapas" that are quite creative using as a base some very traditional Cuban full menú ítems.
