“Not impressed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

After reading the reviews, I expected some really good food here while we were in Hollywood (9/25/13). It was good, but not great. Late lunch, we were the only ones there. Service was slow. The items listed on the specials weren't available. Although the cook understood English, she only spoke Spanish to our waitress to address questions we asked. Had I spent half as much, I would have thought it was a bargain. Instead, I left disappointed. Not sure where in Hollywood you could get better Cuban, but in Miami there are lots.

“Good Food but a bit expensive considering the ambience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

I would rate 4 star for food but it's a bit expensive considering the ambience, thus a 3 star.
Also, make sure to verify the waiter understands the order properly. They have a very wide range of beer selection. Don't forget to try Milk Shake, it's awesome.

“Patience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

Go there with lots of it. We went during the week right at lunch time and we had to go get the server in the back after numerous times calling. The food and the bill took equally long to get. The food was okay, it def needs more ambiance and more service. But the beer selection is amazing, from all over the world over 200. You can build a great business just on that! Beer and appetizer happy hour could turn this much needed business into a thriving neighborhood joint catering to a discerning crowd.

“Cuban food prepared with love for the food and the customer.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

Cuban food that is all about respect and love for the art of cooking and sharing. This is the place that makes some magic happen with the service and the meal. We had braised ox tail, roasted pork, black beans, rice, plantains, wine and ice tea. Everthing, including the ice tea was either better than most I have had or so different and delicious I had nothing to compare it to. That even includes the ice tea. If you want great food, personal and attentive service, Laura's is a must eat at location. They also stock over 200 varietes of beer, in addtion to a selection of wines, coffees, teas and misc soft drinks.
