We had a good first experience at Havana Grill. I tried their Cuban sandwich, which was rated the best in the area. It was good, but didn't blow me away. This restaurant is a counter restaurant. You order your food at the front, find a seat, and someone brings it to you. There's limited seating inside, but a huge outdoor... More

This place had the best rated Cuban sandwich in Wake County....this is a joke. I've had so much better than this place. Cuban sandwich tasted old, like the pork had been sitting around for a while. The "homemade sangria" was made with canned fruit cocktail....REALLY??? It was horrible. For $40 I expected a much better meal for two.

I started coming here about five years ago. I was amazed I did not know this place had been here for years before I found it. The food is always excellent and the service very friendly. Prices are very reasonable for what you get, and I always find delicious things to try.

Cuban food, no not at all. One of the worst places I have been. Don't waste your time. This is not what Cuban food tastes like. I don't know why this place is even open still. Stay away stay far far away.

We used to live in Miami and long missed the taste of Cuban food until the Havana Grill opened it's doors. The restaurant is not fancy - it offers daily choices as well as a set menu - but it is authentic and delicious!

If you stick with the prepared foods and specials you will be satisfied. Ordering off the menu may be a gamble. My wife ordered roast chicken and received a quarter chicken straight from the deep frier. It turned out that they had no roast chicken ready. They allowed her to choose another dish, but the damage was already done. We... More

In the area and stopped in for dinner. We had the cuban sandwich. It was very good as the meat was warm and the bread was nice and crunchy. We are very happy with out purchase and all of the staff were polite and friendly. The restaurant was very busy on the Saturday evening but the DJ was playing music... More
