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

The mix of good food, drinks and the cuban moodd makes this place special! We are ribs and the steak (from the kitchen specials) and they were both so tasty, I definitely go back there for the food. Drinks range from sangria to mojito or anything a cuban bar would offer, so tasty and quite strong too. Service was extra,... More

Cute places in the City Center area. It's located near lots of Spanish styled resturants and bars. Lunch prices are $8-11. Dinner is slightly higher.

Havana is a great restaurant with good food and service. The cuban sandwich is probably the best I've had and the mojitos are incredible...and can be made with less sugar if you ask nicely. I'd recommend a reservation if you're going at a popular time. I've been to Havana at some of the less popular times and, quite frankly, I... More

Went on a Friday for the $20 mojito pitchers which are very well made. For food we had the Cuban roast pork, steak tequila, empanada trio and the chips with fresh guacamole, all were excellent. The restaurant gets very busy on weekends so I would suggest reservations.

Fantastic experience. It was the first time I felt more at home and relaxed than anywhere else in the city. The food was even better than many meals I have eaten in Cuba. The portions were huge, but still full of flavour. The staff was welcoming and actually did not seemed stressed out like many establishments I visited i Chicago.

We had a group of eight who all enjoyed our meal at the Havana Grill. The small restaurant took us to our table right on time. It's a bit noisy when busy, so this may not be the place for intimate or romantic conversations. The service was superb. The wine and beer list adequate, with nice and nicely-priced options. The...

We are always looking for good Latin Food when visiting a new area and we definitely found it with Havana! Love the décor, the music and the menu selection! Service was a little slow, but overall we would definitely recommend!!

A group of my coworkers and I had dinner here on Friday night. I liked the old building and quaint atmosphere. We started out with pitchers of their house mojitos followed by several appetizers, ceviche, guacamole, and empanadas. All were good but the ceviche was AMAZING!
