Love their Salsa Sundays and brunch, though a little pricey. I used to really enjoy their jerk chicken as well, but I think they changed up their recipe and reduced portion size in the past couple of years. Cuban coffee in the cafe!

Outstanding restaurant, food was delicious. .Customer service very satisfaction . As I looked around the room everyone was enjoying their self with family and friends.. The young people was amazing. I think it's a place to be. On a nice Sunday afternoon .and any day of the week it's always been pleasant going there. When you want to have good meal and enjoy pleasant people from all different nationalities. . That what make America greater again. By enjoying each other's company. I had a wonderful time. With people you don't know. Take care and be blessed. More...

Remodel is now "familiar friend". With good weather, sidewalk seating is low volume but great with surprisingly little interruption by passersby, so it has a plaza feel. Food is really good and because they don't rush you the prices are very good as a way to hold down a spot for a good long visit with a friend. More...

So good!! Went for brunch on Sunday, got seated right away. The bottomless mimosas weren't watered down like I had expected, the food was SUPER delicious, and the service was fast.

A great place to be at on a Sunday. Their empanadas are a must! They also have bottomless mimosas until 3pm. Another thing to love is their live band at 4pm. Place looks small, but you really will have enough room to shake it! Get free parking under the freeway. More...

This is a pretty awesome place to go on Sunday. We heard the salsa music and came in to dance a bit. Really good energy, a bunch of strangers dancing with strangers, good vibes all around. The food and drinks are pretty pricey and thats the only downfall but the good thing is that anyone can come in, dancex and have a good time. More...

The food was very good. We had a party of 16 people so I am sure it was overwhelming they handled it well enough. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The food came out at a slower pace than was expected, but we did have a large party and they were busy. Overall, I will be back when it is just me and someone else. Thank you so much for the birthday love CANA! More...

The Shrimp and Grits is OFFICIAL! Ordered with the creamy sauce and absolutely Loved it! I Really wish I could give them five stars but the chicken in the Cuban fried chicken and waffles tasted old and not fresh at all. Sort of gamey. Very disappointed with that.. The sweet potato waffle however was super fresh and delicious. Just wish I could have enjoyed the two together as a meal the way I ordered it. More...

I love Cana!! Food is great. Great viBe! Good drinks. But we were there yesterday spent like $200 with food and drinks. Left to go drop a friend off we came back like an hour later then we had to pay a $10 cover to get back in. That wasnt fair!

Went for happy hour. Great prices on food and drinks at happy hour. Empanadas were delicious and the mojito was great. Service was very slow though. The waitress was nice and did her best but I’m pretty sure that she was the only waitress there... More...

Came here for Sunday Brunch and it was packed. One can feel the upbeat energy from outside the restaurant/bar. I would recommend this place to a friend. On Sundays this restaurant/bar has two sections: 1. for strictly food 2. food and dancing. Please note that the food section, divided by a wall does not have a cover charge but you cannot see the live band playing, you can only hear the music. Both sides are packed so choose a section based on your needs at the time. My friend and I decided to pay the $10 surcharge so that we could enjoy the food and live band. After 3pm, the tables from section 2 are removed and that area is transformed into a salsa and meringue playground. The music was 5 stars. Those musician kept the beat going and the dancefloor was quickly packed. Disclaimer: The security guards at the entrance can be a bit gruff but they are pretty friendly once you approach them nicely.
Pro:
1. The Food- was amazing. I tried their mashed yucca for the 1st time and I was in love! This dish came with fried chicken, a plantain side salad with a mango chutney dressing which made me feel like I was on a tropical island. We also had tostones for the appetizer and they were also made fresh to order.
2. The mixed cocktail- has the perfect amount of alcohol.
3. Music
4. Dancing

Cons:
1. Wait time and cover charge to get in

Even when they don't have Caña Juice, the food was amazing. If you are looking for a fancy, quiet place, this is not your place, but if you want to have really good food, I strongly recommend to give it a try.

Great food, atmosphere, and music make for a great date night. The lighting is right, the service is great, and the speciality drinks don't hurt.

Casual eatery with great people watching. Cortadito was the best coffee I've had in months. Food was equally yummy and well priced. Nice patio as well.
