Havana 1957 - Brickell Ratings and Reviews
The menu gave us a great overview of Cuban cuisines s in the main it was all delicious! The cremated deep fried fresh red snapper was however a disappointing take on what could have been great seafood. The live music and ambience was great. We felt a little rushed by the waiting staff to begin with but we resisted their nudging to take our own pace.
Ok don't choose the financial district for a Sunday night. If you do, come here. The live music was a treat, the food good enough (mixed starters was very bland but the main courses were enjoyed by all - especially the fish of the day).
But beware the $5 mojito scam. They are not $5 if you sit down for dinner. We complained and got some money off as we twice asked our server that they were 5.
Very enjoyable evening out though.
Parking was available, $8 for the area is cheap. Food was reasonably priced. Location was good. Decor looked authentic. Drinks (mojitos) were very good. My plate was fried pork chunks, somewhat tough and overlooked. The server, Henry, was excellent, did his best to make up for the few flaws. The appetizers (marriquitas, croquetas, etc) were better than the main dishes. I would rate a 3.5 out of 5.
My husband and I enjoyed Havana 1957!! We were in town, passing through, heading to Dominican Republic. The food is delicious and the staff was able to surprise my husband with a nice dessert with sparklers and chocolate decoration. We enjoyed the sampler platter (so sorry I do not recall what it's called). If I end up in Miami again, save me a seat on the patio 😁
If you're from Miami, don't dine at Havana 1957.
The food is not that good and the service was just ok.
There's so many other places with better Cuban food.
We ordered white rice and beans with our meals. When the food arrived they all had congri. The waiter told us the restaurant ran out of white rice!! What???
My masitas de puerco were dry and the mojito was runny. Portions were average.
Don't waste your time & money!!
The waiter was very friendly. He did "highly" suggest their specials even after I asked about a different item and he actually stated the entree that I intended to order (shredded chicken) would be dry. Appetizers, three entrees, two desserts, three drinks and $234 later... I was happy for the Cuban experience, but do not feel the food measured up to the price. PLEASE note that the gratuity is automatically added to your bill.
The previous night, my family ate at the Edge located at the Four Seasons and enjoyed a fabulous dinner that I would have paid $$$. The food and ambience exceeded the cost. Will eat there again!
Glad I had the Havana 1957 experience, but would not return.
Another terrific meal and evening at Havana 1957. As usual the food was terrific and the "skinny Cuban" menu options are a great opportunity for two people to share appetizers and a meal without having way too much food. The happy hour is always a great deal and this time the service was especially good, very friendly, cordial and accommodating.
The place was busy outside but quiet inside. Took a while for waiters to come over for our drinking order then gave our food! We ordered appetisers and a main but half hour after the order was taken our main shows up first! Apologies then the scramble to get appetisers first with the drinks. Appetisers were cold and the main that followed straight after was overcooked!
We were very disappointed with the lack of service and the quality of service and food
We tried a few dishes and all were delicious. A variety of spices and flavor combinations. Empenadas, cuban sandwich, real coke and rum, chicken soup, sampler, steak,....all good. Old music and lots of old history to look at while dining. The servers were very friendly too.
Cuban style food that tastes fabulous. I ordered the House Special - rotisserie style chicken with Cuban seasonings, fried plantains, rice, black beans and a house salad. The chicken was "fall off the bone" moist and the seasonings were perfect. They also have a "skinny" menu.
We had dinner on the patio: cocktails, appetizers, entrees, but no desert. Everything was delicious and we would gladly eat there again. Only significant blemish on the evening was that it started to rain after we were seated and the patio isn't fully covered, so the staff had to quickly move our table.
Good Cuban food in a fun setting with 1950's Cuba memorabilia. Our family of four had dinner while visiting Miami. Everyone enjoyed the meal and loved snacking on the plantain chips while waiting for our dinner. Our server was exceptionally friendly and helpful. A bit pricey. Convenient Brickell location and valet parking available.
