Cuban Pete's is a festive atmosphere for many occasions - music, decor, wait staff uniforms, etc. The food is pretty good, so you'll get a satisfying meal. The mojitos are a bit sweet - you might want to bring a bottle of wine instead. It...More

This places was great for a quiet mid week lunch with a friend. It wasn't too busy and the service was very good. Both of us went with the suckling pig. Talk about a heaping pile of tasty pork coupled with a mountain of beans...More

Read all the previous reviews about how loud this place is but decided to give it a try based on family recommendations. The loudness is the least of the problems at this place. “Sangria” is sickeningly sweet. Tapas apps are a joke. They arrived 2...More

Lively and exciting restaurant, better in the Summer when you have the outdoor area available. Unfortunately, the wait for the restaurant is ridiculous so it ruins your experience a bit. Once you're seated however, you'll love the food and sangria.
