Expensive, over-rated tourist trap. Nothing authentic about the food at this place. The Cuban sandwich appetizer consisted of three skewered wanton-wrapped ham and melted cheese tubes on a stick. Came with a side of mustard dipping sauce. Its obvious that the owner has never stepped foot in Cuba, and the cooks haven't been home since Castro sent them sailing for cooking bad food. The cocktails were good. But with good rum and fresh mint, anyone can make a great mojito.

I'll keep this short and simple. Good food. Way overpriced. But sketchy wait staff, we left cash tip but I used my credit card to pay for our meal, our waitress charged 30$ on my card! Was a hassle dealing with the restaurant and my credit card company. Beware!

I went here for happy hour and was really happy with my experience! I got a $5 mojito that was super fresh and you could tell the bartender was putting effort into your drink despite being busy. I also got an app for $5 which was guac and plantain chips! Really liked that it was plantain chips instead of tortilla chips. I really felt like I was in Cuba!! Only meh thing is that it was a Friday happy hour so finding a seat was difficult and getting a waitress was even harder. But what can I expect on a Friday at 5:30? I think they should definitely open up more tables though cause no one is really eating dinner so why reserve those places.

Apologies to my out of town guests (Miami and Washington, DC). Simply put, Alma has a good atmosphere but very bad service and at the highest price point. We experienced 50 minute late seating, very slow service, waiters tried to take our plates several times that were not finsihed (take away Octopus??), no heat on in the resturant (Cuba??), and the bill was well, shockingly high... With so many wonderful choices in Philadelphia don't expose your guests to this disappointment.

Went here with my whole family, it was great. All the servers were great and super helpful. The atmosphere was very nice. Menu items delighted us all and nobody was anything but delighted. We even stayed for dessert which we never do. Drinks were well done. Can't really say anything bad.

The scenery abd ambience was very good, although the food was too salty. I do recommend spending any amount of money there
