I've been there several times and the food is always excellent as are the mojitos. The wait time is usually a bit much, but that's a good sign. A restaurant would not have as much business as they do if the food was sub-par. A lot of people complain about the noise level, but the music is a great and very necessary addition to the atmosphere of a Latin restaurant. Besides, we Latinos are loud people.

The food is absolutely great. House reds are better than average as well. All those who say the noise level is to loud must be going during weekday lunch hours or on a Saturday night because when I've gone there was never more than a few tables full and it was very pleasant. Try it on a week night. Also to the fellas you may have to watch the wondering eyes because the hostesses and waitresses are typically apt to turn your head so you may have to be careful if you bring a date.

The food at Cabana is amazing and the atmosphere is great! Its a great place to go with a group of friends--tends to get a little noisy, so not necessarily the best choice for for a quiet date. The waiters and waitresses are really nice and give a lot of great suggestions when ordering. And the mojitos are fantastic...

The food is good, tasty and satisfying. However, the noise level is too loud.

I had a very bad experience with a so called cuban restaurant in Florida, nothing compared to the food at Cabana. I tell you, if you are in the mood for Cuban food there is no other place you could find that will satisfy your craving. Try it, you'll be agreeing with me once you've had it.

I was here for lunch once and had an amazing salad. When my mother was in town, I took her. Again, we had a great experience. Wonderful drinks, friendly and attentive service and excellent food. The dining room is a little loud, but that is my only complaint. A great value.

This is one of my favourite restaurants. Their food is really delicious. For app. I always enjoy their cod fish fritters. Their black beans are excellent and the garlic chicken is one of my all time favourites. My husband loves their paella or any other seafood dish they might have as a special. The mojito is great and their pina colada tastes as if it's made with fresh coconut. The service is always excellent and friendly. The wait can be a little long but it's worth it. They also have a location in forest hills, queens which is just as fantastic.
