Havana 1957 - Brickell Ratings and Reviews
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.
Outstanding Cuban food surrounded by memorabilia of Old Cuba and its fantastic musical history. Excellent service and the food is flavorful and abundant. They have live music on specific evenings. The ambiance is casual but you feel you are in a different time. Highly recommend to anyone looking to get an authentic Cuban experience.
The service was very friendly, the waiter tried to guide us to the best dishes. I didn't listen and my fillet of fish wasn't not very good. My friends meals were better.
They have live music on Friday's and Saturday's.
It was rather good. We sat outside and it was very quite though you could appreciate the music.
We were looking to experience Cuban for while in Miami. Havana 1957 was highly rated so we took a long walk to give it a try. We were promptly seated just as they opened. At our table the water glasses were filthy with large food particles adhering to the sides of the glasses, which didn't whet the appetite. The waiter was good, but communication among the staff was lacking. For example, my wife ordered sparkling water; it was poured for her; and then another server came along and tried to pour tap water on top of it. We shared a Cuban Sampler for too, which was good, but a little heavy on the starches, which seemed to stay with us all afternoon. The drinks were good. It was pleasant to sit outside.
They should focus on simply getting basic cleanliness right. Without that, all else is suspect.
Came for lunch on my own. There were only a few other tables. Ordered lechón asado and it was very juicy and tender. The waitress was super warm and friendly. You have 2 selections of sides with any entree, despise what are listed on the menu. The bill automatically added 18% gratuity. Price is towards the high side since it's in Brickell's financial district.
This was a first time experience for me and the food was great. Seating was a bit challenging at first but the service made up for it. Our waiter answered our questions and provided options to satisfy our tastes which made for a great experience. We had the Enchilado de Mariscos which was delicious!
My overall experience was of an institutionalized, sloppy kitchen and indifferent attitude to customer relations. When I was seated I looked forward to ordering and tasting a citrusy, spicy fresh fish ceviche and a deeply flavorful tamale with a hunk of delicious roasted pork in the middle but instead was served a day old fish ceviche that reeked of vinegar and a tamale that disappointedly had been prepared with pork soup and contained no pieces of roasted pork. The final straw was delivered with my order for the Cuban Steak that was advertised as flank steak and turned out to be skirt steak. I complained to the manager and he begrudgingly removed the steak from my final bill but I left Havana 1957 feeling as if I was an insignificant ingredient in the big plans for Havana 1957 to become a huge
South Florida tourist trap.
