We had to wait 20 minutes and then ask the front desk to have a server attending us! Otherwise, everything was as expected.

We are so sorry to hear about the service mishaps. A server should have greeted your table within 2 minutes of you being sat. That said we are so glad you enjoyed your meal. We hope to serve you again sometime.

Me and my girlfriend had our second date here and love coming back often to reminisce. Drinks were amazing and we got our usual app sampler. We were starving after a long day at work and she ordered the skirt steak (medium) and I got the guava glazed ribs. Not sure what happened in the kitchen that day, but the steak came out very well done and my ribs were way overcooked.

I let it go but she just couldn't eat the dry steak, even though she tried. We advised the waiter and the manager was gracious enough to remove it from the check. The whole point is, for one of the most expensive items on the menu, it's important to cook it the way it's requested, everytime! When people are looking forward to eating something the way they want it, plus they are hungry, if it's not right they will probably start going elsewhere.

Havana Central Roosevelt Field Mall
Responded on May 24, 2021

Thanks for dining with us and sharing your feedback. You are absolutely right, a steak should be cooked to the desire temp! We truly apologize for the inconvenience but we are glad the manager was able to amend the bill. The Churrasco is one of our top selling items so we certainly hope for it to continue to impress. We look forward to serving you again sometime!

Yesterday was my 4th time at this location, last time before this was about 4 months prior. Have always had great service but yesterday, it was pretty bad. There were 5 of us in our group and our server got 2 of our orders wrong, was nowhere to be found whenever we needed him, forgot one of our side dish orders, and an item we never ordered was added to our bill. I had highly recommended this place to 3 people who had never been at this restaurant, and was quite embarrassed with yesterday's outcome. In addition, now that restaurants are opening up with a higher capacity, they need to get more servers back in. They were definitely short staffed based on yesterday's experience. Hence, our server disappearing most of the night. Food was still good though!

My only complaint is the loud level of the music. People of a certain age (me) have trouble hearing a conversation when music is blaring in the background. I think my age group is not part of their primary demographic, but to attract older diners, that is something to consider. Or at least have a quiet section without speakers.

Meryl thank you for dining with us and sharing your feedback! Indeed vibrant Latin music is part of our DNA but there are some areas of the restaurant that are a bit 'quieter' so please do let the host know next time you dine with us and we will do our vest best to accommodate. We do hope you enjoyed your meal and again thank you for your feedback, we take all comments seriously and review with our team.

I’d definitely recommend this place!My Salvadorian friend,my little girl and I had a good time there.Overall experience wasn’t bad,.The only disappointment was with the big classic margarita;it was more on the sweeter side,very little alcohol(tequila),besides... it was pricey($39) Anyways...we added another shot of tequila which wasn’t the same one(patrón)used in the cocktail but a cheaper one(José Cuervo) and cost $14!! We also ordered the appetizer sampler and guacamole&chips,but I wasn’t satisfied with the empanadas cause the dough was still raw on the inside.BUT....I must say that our good looking and friendly waiter Carlos made sure we didn't leave dissatisfied so the guacamole and chips were discounted from the bill😊
