You need to take the metro to get to this atmospheric Cuban restaurant a little off-centre Chicago. But it is not too far. It is a basic, unpretentious place with decent live music on a Saturday night. Prices are OK by Chicago standards, service was very friendly. Steaks were a bit thin and slightly overcooked, but nothing too serious. I... More

Cuban food is to die for. The service is ok but well worth the wait. Prices are a bit on the high but you will enjoy the music out there. You might like it.

We ate here for a late lunch on a Sunday on the outdoor patio. Lovely setting and the food was delicious. I recommend the vegetarian tamale plate. Everything was great, including the mojitos. Service was friendly and prompt. Would go back again for sure.

I must say this place was awesome especially when you live in the suburbs and all you're surrounded by is ribs and fried chicken places and no one knows what Caribbean food even looks like .. So when we drove an hour to this place it really made it worth while !! You walk in and you hear salsa and... More

This came as a definite need to go to from our friends when we were visiting Chicago with them. We met up with their family and all came here for dinner on a Friday night. Let me say from the moment you walk in you feel like everyone is family. The staff is so friendly and just great. The service... More

The great benefit of living in Chicago, we have soooooo many restaurants to choose from! We were looking for a late lunch on a Sunday and happened to drive by Siboney, which stated it offered Cuban Cuisine. Ok, we were in! We haven't had Cuban cuisine for awhile. Easily found parking on the street and jumped out of the car... More

A very pleasant place to spend an evening. Food was excellent, but very slow to serve. The waiters were very nice. Ambiance - excellent. Restaurant does not seem equipped for large party groups. Music was excellent.

We recently went, for late lunch, to Siboney Cuban Restaurant. It was our first visit but it will not be our last. The inside of the restaurant is very nicely decorated, the service was very friendly and the food was delicious. My husband and I both had the "palomilla" beefsteak with rice, black beans and ripe plantains. Everything was very... More

We have driven past Siboney countless times and finally tried it for dinner. What a treat! Our server, Miguel, was excellent! Very friendly, courteous and helpful. The food was fresh and delicious. Very authentic Cuban cuisine. We will definitely be back.
