Staying at Frenchman's reef tried places it town and had great meals and tonight stayed within the Marriott property to try Havana Blue. Table was ready, our waitress pleasant and informative and timely. Our drinks and appetiser arrived were well prepared. Dinners arrived at a leisurely pace and the Havana chicken was moist, presented well and flavorful. Sea bass was moist but a little light on the lemongrass flavor. Snapper was a little on the dry side but otherwise full of flavor. Having traveled a lot in the islands and stateside metro we were very pleased by the portion size and flavor and not surprised at the pricing which was in range for resort fine dining. Desserts creme brule and chocolate fondant were outstanding finishes. I would definitely come back, and order the fish again.

An incredible view. Truly wonderful. And that's about it.

Their knowledge of the wine was dismal, serving a Sancerre to young to enjoy, followed by lobster which were so overdone, they would have been more at home on my wheels than on my plate.

The only time I have not eaten all the lobster on my plate.

Coupled with the bill. Shameful.

Please accept our sincerest apologies that you had such a poor experience with us! Our staff is typically very well-versed in wine recommendations, so this is surprising to hear. We apologize if the lobster was overdone, and wish you'd have let us know you were displeased. We'd have gladly replaced it had we known it wasn't prepared to your liking. It's great to hear that you enjoyed the view, but we aim for a great overall dining experience from beginning to end. Please accept our apologies that we let you down, and we welcome the opportunity to discuss how we can make this right for you.

Sincerely,

HAVANA BLUE Management

Kind of a neat look to the place, food was very good but high priced. Service at the bar (while waiting for the table) was really slow.

Great atmosphere, terrific food and a fabulous server by the name of Christine! We ordered tapas one evening and entrees another evening, both times the food and service were excellent.

Our visit to Havana Blue started with a wonderful welcome by two of the sweetest hostesses, Kayla and Holly. Their youth, warmth and professionalism was refreshing, as was the amazing martini at the bar and the delicious food
