We had an early dinner at Havana. The food was great. A good variety. Portions just the right size. Definitely would recommend and will go again. The atmosphere was nice.

If you're looking for a quiet restaurant, look elsewhere. The service is friendly and attentive, which makes you feel welcomed and noticed. The food tastes a bit bland, although the portions are adequate. Somewhat overpriced considering

We had some delicious appetizers and cocktails at this cute, stylish restaurant. The mojitos were scrumptious! The appetizers, which included ceviche, were flavorful, presented well, and reasonably priced. I would go to this restaurant again, either for a romantic dinner, or with a group of friends.

Great first date place - went on a Wednesday and was promptly seated near the bar - great atmosphere. Ordered a pitcher of mojitos, and while it seems expensive, considering we got 8 drinks out of it, not expensive at all - best mojito

Havana has a friendly staff who tries hard to please. The mojitos and tapas were good, although everything was a bit overpriced. The mixed green salad and scallops were nicely done, although the scallop portion was small. Crab cakes
