Not a cuban feel. Honestly, quite disappointing. Ambience was good. Service was exceptional. Food was not what I expected. The mojito was not close to a cuban mojito. The appetizer spring roll was exceptional. sufficient enough for 2 to eat. Quite frankly the name should be an American cafe with the name Havana. "Maduros" were not ripe enough to consider putting in that rich caramel sauce. The "palomillo", rice and black beans could not even been considered latino. Don't get me wrong food was good just did not honor the latino cuisine flavor. The coffee "espresso" could not even come close to a cuban cafe. Sorry I liked the place and the service but I just think food did no justice to latino cuisine, not even close to Cuban cuisine.
Wonderful Food - And the staff is AMAZING!!!!!!. It is so refreshing to get away from the same old same! There nightly specials are always a pleasant surprise for the taste buds! There staff is always so friendly and really care about your experience. Havana on Granby Street is "Party Central" and the Great Neck Rd location is tried and true for the best EVERYDAY escape from the ordinary! I was happy to hear they will be offering a Petit Menu so you can have a little bit of everything. This is a MUST SEE!!!!!!!!
Well worth the visit - will definitely return!.
I have driven past this restaurant for the past year and alway say that I must go there some day. I was ready - had another couple to join my hubby and me - but was worried about the reviews on this site about the staff.
The food was delicious - the mojitos superb. The waitstaff was friendly and the service could not have been better. The only problem I had with them was my envy of how physically beautiful they all were ;)
I've never been to Cuba, but the restaurant felt like some of the high-end restaurants I've been to in Puerto Rico.
All four of us loved the meals we ordered. All of us will definitely go back. A++++
Great Change!. As of 4/3/05 new management was put in place! I tried it out again and the energy and food was great! I hope the customer above will try again.
Rude, Rude, & Inconsistent.
If only you could buy the waitstaff at Havana for what they're worth and then sell them for what they think they're worth!
If you ever been outside of Virginia Beach, please go into Havana just for the amusement. Most of these women act as if they're the goddess of life. Come on ladies, if we're already coming into Havana we already know a little something on life....well at least enough to know you're not all that! Who is the client and who is the help? Guess they will never know. If you absolutely must keep the attitude then all of you should at least try to look a little better to fill the part of your ambience! Thanks for the laughs!
The food is not consistent. Don't expect your order to be the same twice.
Picture Painting. Here's a picture. New to town in nov 03, meeting new aquaintances, making new friends, and every cafe and restaurant was a new experience to me. I have been treated very nicely there by the entire staff, the food has always been an culinary adventure, it is a comfortable place to finish my last hour of work without interruption or mingle with the crowd if I choose as it is a very freindly room. Perfect ambiance!
