Great food, service was fast. The environment and service are so good that I expected the food to be overpriced, but it was reasonable for what you get. Will come back next time I'm in DC!

Pretty good food, and lots of delicious caipirinhas and mojitos. Good happy hour specials, can get pretty crowded. Note that they have a dress code on weekend evenings and we couldn't get in because my husband had sandals on.

I'm sure I should have known before going here that I wasn't going to get a authentic Cuban food experience. Still my hopes we're some what high. The place was gorgeous and very uniquely decorated. Our drinks we're ok, we ordered the chicharones as a appetizer for $13 (ridiculous). They we're drenched in this over bearing garlic sauce with huge chilies that I almost took a bite out of. Than I ordered Churrasco (flank steak) w/ rice and black beans and platano maduro (sweet plantains). My friend ordered Vaca Frita (Fried shredded meat) with the same sides except she got the tostones (fried plantains). Not only was all our food so damn over priced that made our heads spin. But most was cooked badly and did not keep to the real CUBAN foods. Both my parents are born and raised cubans but I grew up on all this food and as much as I know different versions are made. These versions we're not the welcome kind and definitely not for the price and quantity. Everything had way too much garlic on it which was completely over bearing but the amount that was given for the price was ridiculous. My friends plate which was only shredded fried beef was $25. I don't care what your place's name is or what city you are located. That is way over priced. The service was good but I will not come back and WILL NOT recommend to anyone who wants decent Cuban food. I'd rather just invite them to my place for that. They really need to re-look over the menu and re-think what "ACTUAL" Cuban food is.

The service is exactly how I like it. Knowledgeable. Proactive, but not hovering. I've been for brunch and dinner. I haven't had a bad dish yet.

Very disappointed..ordered two of the Tierra y Mar on the menu and they both looked like it was in tierra y mar echo..true to its name..had different items on the plate...cheap with the white rice and blk beans..will never go again

This place is ridiculous, we were 5 and we ask for an appetizer, they brought and toston , 1 mariquita, 2 pieces of chicharones and 3 pieces of chorizo. And the food was bad too, I asked for a lechon asado, first the plate was bigger than the table, and of course a little bit of food, and on top of that the lechon asado was very spicy. I am cuban, and I have never seen a Cuban lechon asado spicy. When we were eating, they lift us off the table because it was VIP hour

This food is omg tasty. The seafood soup is great and any of the appetizers, different variations on something stuffed and fried, are delicious.
