My wife and I have made it an annual tradition to travel by train from Omaha to Chicago for a long weekend every spring. We first discovered Havana Grille by accident due to it's proximity to our hotel three years ago, but quickly fell completely in love with the food, service, ambiance and mojitos, and eat there two of our...

I've been here for countless lunches while at work, but never for dinner. The food here is so good, the portions are generous, and you would pay twice the cost to get this quality and ambiance anywhere else in the Loop. The Steak Cubano is my personal favorite, but you can also get the cheaper lunch specials and walk away... More

This place is a spot we have stopped at a couple times and will go back, The Cubano is really good, and I order it most times I am here. The service is very good, and it always seems pretty busy.

My wife and I came back to Havana Grill this weekend to see if our first outstanding experience from a couple of years ago could be duplicated...well, we were not disappointed!

The space is kind of small but Havana has a great bar and delicious food. Had ropa vieja and Cuban steak and both were amazing. Packed with people and great Latin music

Good spot for cuban food and beverages when you get tired of Chicago steakhouses and pizza. Wasn't busy during our visit but it's not big so might need a reservation some nights.

I really like this restaurant. It is small, vibrant, serves great drinks, and offers a variety of Latin foods. They make a potent caipirinha, sip and enjoy. We had the Alambres for appetisers skewered shrimp, peppers, and onions on pineapple rice with a coconut chipotle glaze. Delicious! For entrees we selected the Rollitos Manchego and the Carne Asada.

Went here with my son and 6 of his college aged friends (all over 21). Great place for dinner. They serve pitchers of mojitos and margaritas, lots of choices for appetizers and dinner. Reservations are needed. We had chips with guacomole, fried plantain, Chimichangas, fish tacos, steak - all good, enchiladas were just okay
