We have been eating here for years - the Havana Combo Cuban sandwich with black beans and rice is simple and delicious. Get a side order of the fried plantains and Cuban bread and end the meal with their flan - perfect. The atmosphere is casual, staff are welcoming, and a meal here is always memorable.

More like Americanized Cuban. Ordered platter to try a little bit of things that they're known for. Meh... Shrimp drowned in butter. Chicken was drowned in heavy cream sauce. Pork roast has flavor but heavy in vinegar. Plaintains were more black rather than caramel color. Flan tasted more like a cake. Appetizer of shrimp was also drowned in butter. The... More

We visited Habana Cafe for lunch and were happy with the food, service, and value. I had the Cuban sandwich and fried plantains, my wife had a ham and cheese sandwich, and my son had a grilled chicken and fries. Everything was tasty and it was apparent that the kitchen staff take pride in their work since all the little... More

I look forward to our annual visit to this restaurant all year long, and it never disappoints. I considered myself pretty "well-eaten" across many cuisines and in many of the global restaurant hotspots. I cannot replicate this meal. The flavors are savory and delectable whether it is their Cuban paella or their famous pork. The basics - plantains, Cuban bread,... More

Food is consistently good. Reasonably priced. Huge portions. Service pleasant but slow. Food is cooked to order but staff does not explain that. Worth the wait. Would like to hear more Cuban music played.

Had a large group for a buffet dinner and service left much to be desired. The food itself was outstanding but we ran out of food and it was not replenished. Very disappointed. Some people were not able to eat at all.

I enjoyed the chicken with rice and plantains. It was soooo good. Cuban bread is delicious just wish they served more of it. Steak sandwich is amazing, Cuban style of course.
