“Great food”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

I've been to their location in Delray and it was wonderful so decided to try it here in NY for my companies team dinner. The restaurant is much smaller than Delray, but the food is just as excellent. Try the Paella and Sangria! But others I was with enjoyed the Mahi. I don't think you can go wrong with any choice!

“GREAT food. lousy service.”
Reviewed July 1, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

here's the thing about Cabana. I have been eating there for years and every time i go i get such bad service from their waitstaff i'm like 'why the heck do i eat here?' then my food comes and i'm reminded. the food is awesome. every thing on the menu rules. the servers are rude, inattentive, and the hostess will straight up ignore you. they serve you about 6 ounces of soda and charge for refills. its just that kinda place.

why do i keep going back for such abuse? the ropa vieja, the skirt steak, the empanadas, the plantains....all of it. so good. maybe i should start ordering takeout.

“Zesty Latin on Upper East Side”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

This is a nice room with a varied Latin/Cuban menu. The food was well spiced and the portions were more than ample. The service was friendly. The mixed grill was especially tasty, featuring a variety of Latin sausages not usually available. The fish dishes were also strong. A good choice if you are in the neighborhood.
