Not only very expensive, but has nothing to do with cuban food. The only cuban thing here was the waitress who by the way was totally clueless about the food and everything, I think she was in training, people that was with me and was having this type of food for the time, said that it was horrible and expensive.

Food was delicious and live band on a Friday was unexpected but pleasant. Nice time until a fight almost broke out at the bar. Thanks to another bar customer, it was difussed and they continued drinking. Two different types of clientelle - the dinner patrons and the wild bunch bar crawlers who drink excessively and cannot control themselves. Hard to enjoy your meal when you have to watch your back.

The above says it all. We wanted to like this place, but the food was very plain with very little Cuban tast, if any,

This restaurant like many locals, falls into the category of average. The wait staff were some of the same that previously worked at Fratelli at this location and they were competent, the room is attractively done, but the food was a let down. A news review said the Cuban sandwiches were great, except on our first trip the pork wasn't ready, no way to build a business

The Sangria was watery, the peril was not roasted like Cubans make it, it tasted like the meat was boiled rather than roasted. The beans were light out of a Goya can without any flavor. The minute I saw them I knew they weren't good. There was not the Cuban flavor anywhere. A shame because Cuban food is very good. Not real Cuban food if that is what you are looking for. Will never go back.
