My favorite restaurant with best food and services.
Excellent Cuban food! I loved the ambience and the interior decorations.
Premier Cuban restaurant for authentic experience, but also just a great night out. The staff are friendly and energetic from the greeting at the door to the waitress at the table. They help you find tasty items on the menu. The food is consistent from visit to visit and enough to save some to take home. Dessert is varied to appeal to different tastes but each choice delicious.
Great food & service, even during this pandemic!
The arrival was warm and welcoming. They did not get my order right and corrected my shrimp with garlic sauce dish with no fuss. The corrected meal looked scattered on the plate which then lacked presentation, and the shrimp was much too salty. Even my guest who has a high salt tolerance, remarked about the overly salty taste of the shrimp without any prompt from me. On the reservation, I indicated it's a birthday event for my guest. I confirmed that they'll recognize the celebration on my arrival and was told that they'll sing happy birthday. When my guest stepped away, I later reminded the server about the happy birthday singing and she acknowledged my statement. No happy birthday recognition was made which was a disappointment.
great waitress Deja
large part of teens, early 20s near us requesting separate checks, complaining and rude to staff
Manager handled expertly with calm and patience and resolving issues immediately
Great food and mojitos too!
Loved our experience. The food was great. Highly recommend getting croquetas and tostones rellenos with their batido de mango. And the tres leches simply exquisite.
Alex was attentive, courteous,knowledgeable and professional.
Food was great! Loved Alex's favorite dish, the oxtail was delicious. Generous servings, sufficient to split between two.
Thank you for making our reunion of friends a memorable evening.
Our server was super patient with us...we were talking so much it took us forever to order. The mojitos were on point - one was Mango and the other, pineapple. All of our food was delicious. We sat for a long time and never felt like we were being pushed to leave. I have been here a number of times and have never been disappointed! I'll keep coming back.
The server was shadowed by a trainer which had its pluses and minuses! She made one order error but the service was excellent!
Wonderful food, warm environment. We love visiting Cuba de Ayer. We’ve never had a bad experience. On Christmas Eve, we restaurant was busy but not packed. Food came promptly. Fresh, flavorful, and filling. Good portions and plenty of options for every pallet. There’s even a kids menu that offers something for the pickiest of eaters. While you wait on your order, watching the artwork and decor will keep your attention.
Had a nice outside lunch and brought home leftovers and an additional order for dinner and Christmas lunch, following my wife’s family tradition. We were the only table outside but service was very attentive and friendly. Food was excellent and the whole experience was a joy. I can’t recommend this Cuban restaurant more highly. Wonderful meal!!
Always a great experience. The food is outstanding and service is great! It’s our go-to place to take friends.
Excellent food and service. Drinks were excellent
Cuba de Ayer consistently serves up delicious food and awesome experiences! The staff is friendly and attentive. Thank you!
Thanks a lot for representing Caribbean cuisine, particularly Cuba. Happy Holidays !
I’m Cuban and recently moved from Fort Lauderdale and have been searching for great Cuban place for some of the food I’ve been missing so much, this is a great authentic restaurant everything was delicious. I ordered a lot of different items and was not disappointed
It was our anniversary and we decided to treat ourselves to a delicious dinner ! 💜
Food was amazing service wasn’t great but food made up for it
Poor service, overly salty food, and dining room needs to be updated. I’ve been here before but this was the first time I sat inside.
Our party of 3 had different entrees: pork, steak, seafood. We shared and loved everything.
Very good time!
Date night and she suggested this place for her birthday. It was great! Awesome food, great service and ambiance I will definitely be back.
First time and can't wait to go back. Delicious food, great service, perfect ambiance.
Exceptional! Camarones en Aguacate and the Trucha are a must-try.
As a Cuban immigrant, I find that the food is very authentic. The best compliment I can give is that the food it’s like I’m eating at my mothers house!
I would strongly recommend a reservation. Some people were waiting about an hour for a table.
The food was good as always but our server was exceptionally attentive and helpful.
Only minor drawbacks: No non-alcoholic beers, no substitutes for the plantains, and only white rice (vs. Wild, brown, etc.). Overall, everyone raved about the food.
Service was great
Cuba de Ayer is a hole in the wall. A secret hideaway for authentic Cuban cuisine. The service was outstanding and the food superb. My friends had never eaten Cuban food before and they are most likely going to come back.
Always great ambiance and the food on its point. Being from the Caribbean this is the food that I missed the most. Cuba de Ayer provides me a mind escapade not only with the food but also with an authentic Cuban setting. Super clean and excellent service. The personnel was always so kind and smiling.
Loved it!! Great flavor and style
Not expensive, great food and courteous service. Parking is not the best but you'll forget all about that once you dine there .
My favorite place to eat and gather together! Good service and food as always.
Absolutely GREAT food. I have never had a bad meal. The atmosphere is wonderful and staff is impeccable
The food was pretty good, but mojito and margarita were both bad. Our server was nice but less than attentive. Everything was very, very overpriced. I won’t go back.
Food was amazing! Service was great! Will visit again for sure!
My favorite place with good food and service!
Best Cuban meal we’ve had since South Florida!👍🥰
