“Great cuban food on Lincoln Road”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

The owners of Havana 1957 on Española Way have opened another great cuban gem now on Lincoln Road. The service, food, drinks, dessert and venue area ll great. It is very authentic Cuban cuisine and the atmosphere is also really enjoyable. Make sure you get a flan for dessert, if they can add coconut even better.

“Surprisingly good and surprisingly affordable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Staff were friendly and inviting. Menu isn't extravagant but complete. I had the Vaca Frita and although it wasn't "shredded" it was delicious. It arrived quickly to the table where it didn't last too long. It seems like more of a "fast food" atmosphere rather than sit down with friends/family and enjoy the night. Had a frozen margarita (it was HOT outside) that although tasted fine, there was very little alcohol in it- So although not the most special place in South Beach, it's a fine place to grab a meal that won't bust the bank. I do wish they'd get rid of the barker out front trying to grab customers. So touristy and "cheap". This place doesn't need it.

“If on Lincoln Road”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

If a nice place if you're walking down Lincoln Road.
You'll get some nice drinks, nice food, nice staff.
I tried the "Ropa Vieja" it was nice.
It is'nt a "must visit restaurant" but if you want a safe place on Lincoln Road to have some drinks and eat some food, you're gonna enjoy it.

“never even got a chance to eat - rude was on the menu.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

wanted to have lunch at havana 1957, had previously been introduced to the manager (was that you eliestaban? who even bought me a mojito a while back) by one of the staff as we were frequent customers for years of the previous restaurant. walked by and the restaurant had about 10 tables seated, water in the glasses, and menu's in the hands, all in different sections of the restaurant.
walked up to the podium (btw dressed appropriately) and was told that "they were not open yet". huh? what? there are tables of people there obviously being served, no special group noted to be having an affair there.
most importantly not to mention the 'gentleman' was rude, rude, rude..........and rude!
i get it, the restaurant was just closed for me.
competition on lincoln road is fierce and endless..........i certainly won't go back. i will spend my $'s where i am treated better and where they want my business.
shame.
