The Dark Knight
Good food great vibes
Love the place great place for a date and salsa dancing
As a Cuban-American whose father moved heaven and earth for his son to have opportunity, I love and appreciate these great privately owned local spots. It's difficult to explain all the challenges you experience throughout the day but it's nice having places like this to relax and recharge for another day of working hard and grinding away. More...
Decent vibe, good drinks
Great atomosphere and drinks!
Was here for wedding reception, good food good service.
Great service and wonderful food and best of all they have salsa dance lessons
Muy agradable ambiente lo recomiendo la comida rica..
Had a blast on the dance floor.
Great food, drinks and atmosphere! Will definitely be going back
The mussels and the nachos, I can still taste them. The atmosphere is great with amazing decor. Be aware that the main dinning hall you can smoke in. I love the deck of cards on the table. We played while we waiting for our food. More...
They Have the Best Mojitos!!!!
without a doubt .... the BEST shrimp and grits I've ever had! I'm officially in love :-)
- I could live here
This place is amazing! Wonderful atmosphere and great drinks! The staff did bring us the wrong order but made up for it by the food being delicious! Highly recommend going during happy hour as the app’s and drinks are $5.00! Also try the Cuban Nachos! Won’t regret it More...
Food was good. Better than KubaKuba. Although my plantain was undercooked. I mentioned it to the waitress as constructive criticism in hopes it won't happen again and be served to a less forgiving customer. I was fine with it and didn't want a replacement. Her response was "thanks for the criticism, it's her first day." 1. As a customer I don't need to know that. 2. What you just told me is you employ workers and let them cook without knowing exactly how to cook the items on the menu. Bad form. Overall I enjoyed my meal. I recommend a visit. More...
Nice rooftop bar.
Been here a few times now. Once for a birthday dinner (food was good). Once for drinks at the bar (also good). And the most recent time for the salsa lesson upstairs on Thursday nights (easy to follow along and fun). The lesson was great but the space was crowded. They should really cap the number of people they allow in that space. They do allow cigar smoking in this establishment so just be aware if the scent will bother you. Also my bill at the bar upstairs included gratuity already so just watch for that when you get your check. More...
Got the Cuban sandwich, was really good. Nice and open in the summers. Fun environment, dancing on Thursday nights is a must.
This was my first time at Havana. It will not be my last!!! I loved the food, drinks, and the couple's that joined us. The atmosphere inside and outside was the best!!! I love what they did with 17 street market!!!! More...
Jeudi soir c'est la fête.
Great atmosphere and good service
My Spot on the nights I got time
Great atmosphere, wonderful drinks , Cigar Lounge ! Nice location , Usual downtown parking woes .
Went for salsa...had a ball!
Had a wonderful evening dancing the night away.
Was visiting from Chicago. And this place was the only place on my mind all vacation. Amazing drinks and great outdoor patio with awesome music on Thursday. Would definitely recommend it to anyone that wants to go dance. More...
Great atmosphere and even better Cuban food and you can even enjoy a good stogie after dinner.
Try the Cuban nachos. And stop by the anterior to see the neon diver. Impressive food. Amazinginly accurate atmosphere. I felt like I was in Cuba.
Great food and atmosphere!!!...we had skirt steak and Cuban sandwiches!!!.. very good!
Amazing food and dance.
Good happy hour options
I go here regularly for happy hour and dinner. Also been for brunch. The food is fantastic. The Cuban nachos in particular are my favorite. Mojitos are excellent and service is always good. The atmosphere really rounds out the experience. Be ready so the smoking if you sit in the bar but when the windows are open and with their ventilation system its not that noticeable. More...
I want to let everyone know that this place is amazing! James the bartender is the greatest! Talk about knowledge! He told me varies places to go to and check out! Kristin the manager was amazing! Talking about amazing! She understands the customers and the employees! More...
Incredible food. Great atmosphere. We wanted to spend hours here! Loved it and cannot wait to go back.
Good service and the food was excellent !
Cigars are overpriced and no cedar to light. Had a Guinness and the food still a bit over priced. Still only place I've found that you can drink inside with a cigar. Still people here don't know how to smoke a cigar, you blow up and not to the side into your neighbors area!Richmond has a lot to learn about smoking real cigars in a restaurant. More...
I always have a good time there
Good food & great atmosphere. Everything on the menu is really good.
I was a little disappointed with the food and service. The waitress was very nice, just not very attentive. I didn’t find the restaurant to be that busy for her to not take the extra time at a table. As for the food, it was ok. She rushed through explaining anything and literally dropped a dessert menu on the table as she walked by. I love Cuban food and have had lots of it in different restaurants. Here we had muscles, mofongo and the pork. The muscles did not taste fresh and there was at least one in the dish that wasn’t opened. As for the mofongo, it was ok just not traditional. It lacked flavor and the vegetables over top was not how I’ve had it all my life. Also it was served with quinoa where it usually is beans? The quinoa was not enough to soak up the broth so the bottom of the dish was wet. Overall it was ok, but if you are experienced with Hispanic food and flavors you may be disappointed in what you get here. More...
Food was great, service was sloppy. Had several wrong drinks brought to the table on different rounds, food took forever to show up, waited almost 15 minutes for the server to show up at the start.That being said, would probably go back to try more of the food. Wings, pork morsels, paella were all excellent. More...
Really nice spot great atmosphere.
Very good, nice evening so open windows were great.
Went on A Thursday. 8-9, group Salsa Lesson, 9 begins open dance. Rooftop Bar and dance floor, food was reasonably priced and delicious. Great atmosphere! Well made mojitos! More...
Excellent food & service
Connor is the best server/manager and went above and beyond to meet our needs! Very attentive, polite and a great sense of humor! My friend spilt chocolate on her blouse and he brought her a cup of club soda to help her get the stain out! We will ask for him from now on! More...
Very chill place. Able to buy cigars and drinks. Drinks were fairly strong and good. Great music upstairs with a decent size crowd. Definitely a good place to visit if in town. More...
Food and service very good. Great atmosphere!
The moment I stepped in, it felt as though I had travelled to Cuba. The atmosphere of Havana 59 is light and playful. This is the only spot in Richmond I know to have a smoke friendly bar. For anybody looking for something different or a great experience in Richmond, I highly recommend Salsa night on Thursdays. They do lessons early in the evening. What a gem! More...
Good food and a cigar bar.
Such a nice restaurant. There was great food and strong drinks. I loved the vibe of the restaurant. We were there dor a wedding so the service great but of course it was for a special event.
Nice Cuban food, music, libations and crowd. Has been a mainstay in Shokoe Botton for years..
Sandwich was dry
Awesome chill spot. Crowed on the Friday night I went. Lots of friendly people.
It's hard to beat the value of Havana. We had a great wedding reception with amazing food, drinks, and service. There was some changing of event coordinators between our booking and our event but Kathrine, the one who planned our day, was responsive and flexible with planning and set up.
Havana ended up being our choice because it's more of an all inclusive vendor. We were able to book the space and include food and alcohol all in one-- very helpful! They actually do not charge for the space, but instead have a F&B minimum to meet in order to use the space. Being on a budget definitely limited our options with venues but we were able to do so much by booking Havana for our reception. Things were a little bumpy in the beginning-- there was a lack of communication and it was difficult to get responses via email, there were several changes in staffing that caused some delay with planning but we were able to bring things together with a little time to spare. Katherine ended up carrying us through our wedding day and despite meeting her only a couple of weeks prior to our date, she executed my vision perfectly. Everything was beautifully decorated exactly as planned and I couldn't have been more pleased. We got so many compliments on the food and service received! A few things to keep in mind: 1) if you plan to have a DJ, make sure you cover this in depth with Havana - we had the police called on us twice for the noise level during the reception. If I had known that they tend to have this issue at Havana, I would have coordinated with my DJ about it to avoid any problems. 2) there is NO elevator to the second/third floor so if you have a lot of older guest or people who can't do stairs, keep this in mind. 3) the space is a little small and I wouldn't recommend anything over 100 guests, just to keep people comfortable. Overall we had a great night and I appreciate all of the little things that were done in order to keep things running smoothly! More...
horrible service. broken sound system. wedding planner for havana 59 couldn't help or fix problems. horrible.
Good variety of Mojitos; outdoor seating for smoking stogies; menu items vary from Cuban to other Latin dishes.
J Christopher Greene
Definitely a must-do if you're downtown
Slice of Havana! Great food and service in an awesome setting.
The taste of the food was good and the presentation was good. I ordered a Mofongo but it clearly was not a Mofongo. They took some other sort of dish, plantain based and slapped the name on it. I saw the same pattern with other dishes my colleagues ordered. I guess they want to put their own spin to traditional dishes. The location is really nice, right in front of a plaza. They allow indoor smoking as well for those of you who want to enjoy a cigar.They have an excellent drink menu, happy hours and daily specials included in it. The waitresses and waiters were great and the food came out fast, great service. More...
Good atmosphere with salsa dancing. Food is on the expensive side and feels a little lackluster. Great location and night scene!
Service and food excellent, staff efficient and friendly. Could not have asked for a better experience in dining.
This is an awesome place to hang out with friends and the food is excellent. The wait staff is phenomenal.
Gigars, mojitos, and food.
Had great service at the bar here!! Great food as well.
Great food and atmosphere. Weeknights are not too busy and service is great for Richmond.
Great customer service!
Yummy food. Great service. Relaxing atmosphere.
Good Cuban food
Great food and great service! If I lived in Richmond I'd be a regular.
Amazing food and great atmosphere! The servers and service is great! I’ve been multiple times and haven’t been disappointed yet! Go try it!
Nice find in Richmond, the restaurant is split between the bar and sit down dinning...Come to find out while chatting with the bartender this place is one of a couple places that are grandfathered in where you can smoke your Cigar in the bar area. The bar side is open to the outside so on a nice day it can be very pleasant. I got the ceviche and Ropa vieja. The ceviche was small over priced and for $14 not anything greeeat. I've had much better for less. I was pretty dissatisfied with it. Not because it tasted bad, the flavors were basic, but there were more plantain chips than ceviche, and the leche de Tigre was just average. The ropa vieja was much better and I really enjoyed it, but some seasoning was overpowering the flavor of the protein. (Either bay leaves or cloves....couldn't put my finger on it). I liked it but just a heads up if you're sensitive to that stuff. The cigar selection was nice (pardon 1926 ) and the bartenders were super friendly and efficient. Honestly this place is a 3.5 but because I really like the spot to sit have a good smoke, imma give it a 4 More...
Had a great experience!I brought my husband here tonight for dinner because I had eaten here several years ago and loved the venue. My expectations were exceeded. The waitstaff, hostess and food were all great. While we were here, a huge thunderstorm came through and it just a blast. Loved every minute of our time with you all!!!! More...
Our first time here and it was really nice. Enjoyed the atmosphere and the food was delicious. We went for brunch and the prices were very reasonable. Everyone enjoyed what they ordered and the staff. More...
MzCee Caryn Stafford
I enjoyed my 1st time
Update: we came by this past weekend, and it's still an amazing place to eat and drink! We shared several plays of appetizers with our family and happy to report it is still a great establishment with great food and drinks!
We were seated and waited 20 minutes before we walked out. In that time, nobody came to our table to take our drink and/or food order. Very disappointed and will not be going back. More...
Pamela J Bullivant
We sat for 20 mins and walked out. we had no service in those 20 mins. No beverage no server whatsoever.
The drink specials, but it's closing on Sunday. The downtown is still open though
It’s very good
Nothing like a mojito and a cigar when it's hot out. FYI don't go to the bar here if you don't like cigar smoke.
My favorite cigar bar because of its Cuban theme and big open garage doors to let the outdoors in while enjoying my favorite cigars and whiskey.
Cai en amor con este lugar. Además que es muy bonitos, die súper relajante para mi...
Food was ok. The atmosphere was amazing
Super cool atmosphere & excellent menu. Servers were very knowledgeable and offered great drink & cigar suggestions.
Food was wonderful and the ambiance was fantastic!
Went for a birthday celebration and it was wonderful. It was like being in Havana Cuba. The upstairs bar and latin dancing was very enjoyable. The crowd was mature and very friendly. I enjoyed the evening! More...
So much love for this place. It reminds me of south Florida. Thursday night salsas are so so fun. Just come let loose and dance. Even if you don't know how to salsa it doesn't matter just come enjoy the music and the people The food is good I had come here for brunch got the breakfast burrito with the potatoes ... made the burrito veg of course... it was so so good. Super filling. Also had mimosas here super great price and good atmosphere. It's located on 17th st which they just renovated so def come during the summer to check out the scene and have a few mojitos Btw one of the few places in Richmond to make good mojitos ! They have happy hour deals on this as well so try that out tooThey do have a smoking area which is cool if you want that vibe but it is kind of a turn off for me and those with children. More...
Good food and service, friendly staff, always a pleasant experience dining at Havana 59 west. Have been here several times for meals and never have had a bad meal or experience here.
Lisa McDonald Lucas
Delicious Mojitos, Cubanos, and the BEST flan! An RVA favorite for us.
Didn't eat here so I can't judge the food. Came here for drinks and salsa and had a blast. Drinks are a bit high though and one of the bartenders (male w/curly hair) in particular was super dull, unfriendly and uninviting..blah! Overall, had a good time and will be back, maybe to try the food next time More...
Matias Pablo Filisetti
Horrible service! My wife and I walked in on a Saturday night and waitress asked “how can I help you, with an attitude”. Then, promptly she went upstairs and talked to the manager. The manager come down and said: “Kitchen will close in 15 min and we will stop serving alcohol in 30 min”. We were like, lets get out of this place. More...
Jorge F Betancourt
Great combination of drinks and food.
Kristen Bastét Bequer
Highly recommend... feels like your in Cuba
Rafael Zanetti Huerta
Amazing place even though a bit expensive
Good food. Great service. Cool atmosphere.
Good food. Great Service. and Amazing Atmosphere. We got a burger by some other name, nachos, and a couple coconut mojitos. They were all really good. Loved the open air feel when they are able to open all the windows and doors. Also there is a nice bar/lounge upstairs which is open air. I imagine it is banging on hot summer nights. More...
Really enjoyed coming here. We sat at the bar and had a cigar and a couple drinks before ordering food. I had the Cubano and it was incredible! I am definitely coming here again the next time I'm in Richmond. The bartenders were very knowledgeable about the menu. Fast friendly service. Very nice place. More...
Great food. Great feel. Great time.
Nice restaurant during the early evening.
Amazing food, loved the atmosphere, music was great, great service. Couldn't have been happier!
They have the best Painkillers, loved the plantain chips as their nachos.
This place is a little slice of paradise in the middle of an industrial wasteland. A step back in time. We had Bacalao and Ceviche for starters, and shared a Cohiba cigar and some Paella for dinner. A little pricy but you definitely get what you pay for. Excellent brunch on Sundays. I try to hit this place every time I'm in Richmond. More...
This place is a restaurant/cigar bar but you're able to sit in a non-smoking area if you're so inclined. When you walk in there is the distinctive smell of what makes a cigar a cigar but you forget about it the longer you're in the restaurant. It really isn't an issue unless you're super sensitive to smells and when you leave neither you hair nor clothes will smell like smoke. Now on to the food. A group of 8 of us arrived around happy hour so naturally we ordered what was in the happy hour menu to start (smart kids). We had the nachos (beef and chicken), calamari, and pork morsels. Folks got rounds of mojitos which I'm told were great and I got a sangria which was delicious. When it was time to order the main meal everything that came out looked amazing. Folks really couldn't stop talking about how delicious their food was. I got the paella which I couldn't finish and ended up having for lunch the following day. More...
Cuban sandwich is to die for!
Came here without expectations and left with positive impressions. The food was very good and the drinks were fantastic. Unfortunately we had to sit in the smoking section and a lot of my first choices on the menu were sold out. More...
great drinks descent cigars good vibe
Classic Cuban Restaurant and Club in Old Richmond....who knew!
I'm from out of town, found this hidden gem. Atmosphere is awesome. Food was very tasty and the cigar selection was good. Great to find a place where you can eat,drink and smoke a cigar. I highly recommend!
Great experience! We actually had a couple more people show up than we had reserved for, but the staff was able to easily accommodate us. The food is always amazing, the staff did a great job, and everyone was happy! The music was a little loud since we were right under the speaker, but that's really a minor gripe. More...
Always amazing food and we loved getting to share this somewhat hidden gem with friends!
Wanted to ever feel like you are an extra in the movie Scarface... Well then come on down to Havana 59! Place feels like an old timey spot in Havana, Cuba with some really tasty Cuban food! I ordered the Cubano and it was legit delicious! Only thing that is keeping me from not giving this place all 5 stars is the fact that they don't have beers on draft just bottles. But still a really neat little place and if you want to smoke a fat little cigar, you can do it right in the diner area! They do have a section that is smoke free as well so no worries if you don't like the smell of cigar smoke! More...
Great food, great atmosphere
Lots of fun for any cigar smoker.
Great place for a delicious cocktail and some yummy Cuban food. Friendly and courteous staff to serve you. Nice selections of scotch and bourbon also have good mojitos. Cigars can be purchased there although a limited selection. Good smoke ventilation so the non-smoker will not be offended. More...
I really like this place! The atmosphere is really cool! It makes you think you're really sitting somewhere in Cuba. This is a must-try for locals in Richmond or even someone visiting from out of town that wants a fun night. I've heard that have salsa dancing on Thursday night too! I love this place. More...
Very accommodating and service is incredible I will definitely visit again
Good place to smoke a cigar.
Great food! Great drinks!
Great drinks and music
Best to go here for salsa night in the upper floor! I recommend you get a tasty mojito so you feel like you have escaped richmond, and flow to Cuba. :)
I work here, stop asking me to review it on my phone every time I leave work
Havana 59 was a very nice restaurant. After we ate dinner around 8 pm we went upstairs to learn Salsa dancing. The instructor was good at teaching. Very fun experience!! Will be going back!! More...
Very fun time- had dancing up stairs but did not participate - Mojitos were excellent and good price- a little smoky due to folks with cigars up stairs or on patio - but not too bad - server was great
First time visit to Havana 59 West was a wonderful experience! This hidden gem is worth a visit. Our reservation was for 6:30 p.m., but we arrived about 30 mins. early. We were seated immediately. Our server, Taylor, was attentive and helpful when she found out it was our first visit. My husband visited the downtown site several years ago and prefers this new location. It has a cozy cafe vibe. Our appetizers were the empanadas and cups of black bean soup. Both were flavorful and delicious, perfect for a chilly night! The entrees were fantastic! My husband ordered the 24/1 serving paella. My entree was the Cubano. I really enjoyed the black beans with the fresh cilantro. We don't usually order dessert, but decided to get the banana rum caramel toffee cheesecake off of the Valentine's Day menu. Thank you Taylor for making that happen! It was really, really wonderful! Our favorite part of the evening was watching the staff. Everyone pitched-in to bus tables, carrying orders to tables and checking on customers. The restaurant has a small staff, but everyone worked together to make it appear effortless. Thanks for a wonderful evening! We plan to return soon! More...
Awesome place to enjoy an evening!!
Food was good, especially the beans that came with the ropa vieja
Awesome experience and great food and service
I would give 10293820 stars if I could. My favorite place for Sunday brunch. My friends and I had originally planned on going to a restaurant across the street only to find out there was a 1 hour wait. Obviously no one in their right mind would wait outside for a table in 30 degree weather so we decided to explore some other options in dt Richmond. At this point we were very impatient and were in desperate need for food and drinks. We passed by Havana and decided to check it out. We were a little skeptic at first, not gonna lie (always hard to pick a new brunch spot) but we made a good move. We were greeted by our lovely waitress (don't remember her name but I wish I could so I could ask for her every time) and we were seated in the smoking section. We were provided with excellent service and had some amazing bloody Mary's and mimosas. Our food was delicious too, and the portions are really big for what you're paying for. Basically a hangover paradise- cigs inside, good drinks, Cuban food, cool waitress, great environment. I felt like I was on vacation the entire time. I would recommend this place to everyone! More...
For the two times I've came here, I've had great/positive experiences. The first time I came here was for a friend's wedding rehearsal dinner. Parking can be a pain in the butt at times, especially during business hours and cause it's downtown and parking is already hard to find. I'd say that you're better off purchasing parking (if you REALLY need to) across the street from Havana.The food was really good and the service from the staff has been super friendly and helpful. The rehearsal dinner was back in November 2018. I do remember the eggrolls and rice that they did have that night and it was pretty good. I was also pretty excited at the take home box that I was able to fill and take home for next day's breakfast/lunch.This review is for this past weekend that I went with a group of 8. We actually wanted to try HotChick but there was already an hour and a half wait when they opened at 11. Luckily, we were able to grab a table asap when we got Havana. We got their mimosa pitchers (about 3) to share among the 4 couples - we also had to bring our little one and managed to have him in the carseat and sharing on the comfy chairs with the big table. The mimosa was pretty good and great to share among a group!Looking over the menu, I decided on their Chicken & Biscuit (Fried chicken thigh, house made chorizo gravy, papas bravas) and my husband decided on their Breakfast Cubano (Roasted pork shoulder, smoked ham, over easy eggs, swiss cheese, house made pickle, mustard, papas bravas). They both were honestly delicious. The chicken was breaded and fried to a nice crispy tenderness, and the gravy was a great flavor to add with the biscuit and potatoes. My husband was nice enough to share a bite of his Cubano and it was really delicious. The breakfast egg was a great finishing touch to it. I really like their house made pickle and mustard in the sandwich, very delicious.I actually enjoyed their brunch menu and wouldn't mind coming back here again (if another brunch location has an over hour wait). Parking may be a major part of the future decision as well. Haha. More...
Excellent service, terrific food.
I love this restaurant!!! The vibe, the food (esp the chicken Cuban nachos) the drinks during happy hour!!!! So good!!!
Great cocktails and appetizers. Nice wait staff who did a great job with our big group.
This place has a lovely atmosphere and great food. It's also good for events.
John R Harris
Great atmosphere and very good food. Staff was attentive and efficient. Pricing however was borderline outrageous. Worth a visit if you can afford it and are in the downtown area.
Love it! great food
Great happy hour
Very nice place, I came for happy hour and were served by Daniel. He was great and we will be returning for salsa nights. Thank you Havana 59!
Great atmosphere, great food. On weekends the upstairs has dancing and is probably the best "club" in the area to go out to. There's a reason it's lasted as long as it has while restaurants and clubs close all around it. More...
Best Mojitos in Virginia!!!
Kirsten Hayden Irby
Havana 59 West!!! My favorite is their brunch. Love the atmosphere and decor. If you haven’t been in you’re missing out!
Good food and service, excellent portion size, reasonable prices for the meal. Have visited the restaurant several times, always a good experience and a pleasant date night.
We had the Steak and the Pork Chop. Delicious
This was our first time to the west location. We have been going to shockoe for years. The atmosphere is not the same. Food and service were great, but we will stick to downtown from now on! Love the gritty atmosphere!
We had friends coming down from NY and they love to try new food. When we go to NY or they come here we always go out to eat. We couldn’t wait to bring them here. They had the pork chops and lamb and we split paella 59. Everyone’s meal was delicious! We all shared desert. Our friends raved about their meal. On top of that, we found out there was a cigar bar upstairs and also had salsa lessons going on! More...
Justin R. Riordan
Fun bar area. The mojitos are really good
I love this place
Nice little chill spot, for the people who dont smoke cigars. You dont have to worry the smoking section is closed off. Drinks and cigars are a good price. Will be coming back in the spring when they offer salsa More...
Good atmosphere. Little ventilation though. Bar staff efficient & friendly. Better in summer when the bar doors are open. Definitely will go back. Easy place to be.
I was pleasantly surprised by our night out at Havana. First and foremost, the mojitos = nectar of the gods. They are soooo good - just be warned you will not taste a thing but ya will feel it! The black bean Soup was my absolute favorite. It has the perfect consistency and a nice limey bite. Super tasty! The only thing I didn't love was the wings. Flavor was on point but they were a bit squishy. I just prefer my wings crispy AF. Super solid spot for groups and drinks ;) I cannot wait to go back for round 2! More...
Great food, great service, quiet atmosphere, and delicious mojitos! Pricy but worth it.
Went here for New years eve dinner with a group of 10. Very nice that they already had our table set for us. This is a classy place without feeling stuffy or like you need to be in full formal wear. If you want to dress up and have a nice date, with fun ambiance, I highly recommend. Mojitos were to die for! Great for groups, as they even had playing cards on the table. The only thing it lacked was music. While I get that the whole restaurant was filled that night, no one could hear any good latin music (it was playing but at an extremely low volume)..in a place like this you expect there to be good music to go with the awesome ambiance. At one point when the group started to "feel the alcohol" we ended up playing music off of our phone, just to have something to ~vibe~ too. More...
Great drinks, food and nightlife!
good times. great bartenders
This was our first visit to the West End location. Food and service were excellent! I think we were there on an uncharacteristically quiet night. They are usually hopping! Will be going back! More...
Another great meal at Havana. I had the ribeye. Terrific. As always the nachos good as well. Service was a bit slow but hey it's the holidays.
Had a lovely time! Salsa lessons and food was so good!
Always a great evening of food and music. The food is incredible and the Mojitos are Fantastic.
I know that it's Cuban inspired regarding meat. As the only vegan in my group, it was nice to see a vegan entree. The Cassoulet was very tasty. The home made hot sauce was a little pricy, but delicious. Maybe next time, more vegan alternatives! More...
My parents are going to Cuba this winter and I wanted to treat them to an authentic brunch - it was amazing and exactly what I was hoping for :-)
Great service great food I’m going back!
Mojitos are pretty good for mojitos. Food: average. Good ambiance. Would be wonderful on a summer night! If only I smoked cigars!
Great food,service and atmosphere. Definitely recommend!
The food was amazing and the ambiance is really cool. The place does smell like stale cigarettes.
Lamb was lovely! Great service!
Nice spot for happy hour. Their Salsa nights are lovely for a nice date.
Enjoyed a great brunch today...Cuban sandwich and some pork hash browns. Wonderful! Coffee was meh but plentiful. Staff was on point and helpful. Liked the decore, a Cuban feel to the place. Recommend reservations for Sunday brunch, it filled up while we were eating. Thank you for the taste of Cuba! More...
I like when they open it up and it's like you are sitting outside. The appetizers I had were godd.
Best place in Richmond.
Wonderful food and music. Great Atmosphere! Beautiful Dining area.
Great quiet evening with a glass of wine in the bar. Atmosphere is amazing! Looking forward to a Thursday evening of salsa.
Great atmosphere, great music, dancing, friends.
The food was delicious, will definitely go back.
Great time as always. Love the cigar, scotch, and wine list.
Met some friends here for our weekly dinner. The staff was friendly and attentive. The food was great. Would definitely go back.
Service and food were great!
It is great having a stylish, fun, tasty, locally owned and operated, theme restaurant in the far west end. The food and drink are excellent. The service and ambiance are great. Be prepared to spend more than at a chain. More...
Very fun, great wine and atmosphere!
Great music asome people great dessert
go to brunch and cigar spot
Great place great food great service.
Wonderful food and atmosphere. As well as great mojitos.
It's a good place to dance salsa, maringue, and bachata. There's also a class beforehand to learn a little bit if you've never danced before. There bit of freestyle dancing though, so keep that in mind if that isn't your style. More...
I'm from out of town and happened to find this place by chance...lucky me!! The food is awesome, love the atmosphere and vibe....the only complaint that I have is that I ordered the salmon and it cost $25 the fish was really little and I had mostly beans and rice and brussel sprouts...so basically I feel like I paid $25 for rice and brussel sprouts with a side of fish lol...the fish should have been bigger for that price...other than that it tasted awesome. More...
Absolutely wonderful experience. Great environment, food and service was spot on. Wish I could give this place 10 stars. *keeping playing cards at every table is brilliant* More...
Food was great and atmosphere was lovely. Great service.
Wow! What a great place. The happy hour specials are nothing short of awesome! The mojitos were the best ive ever had! Our server Jess was outstanding. Extremely attentive and provided serve that went above and beyond! Thank you! The decor of the place is really something to see. It's almost like being in Disney world with the attention to detail found everywhere. More...
Have been to Havana a couple of times. The place is always lively. Their Mojitos are the best in Richmond.Ambiance and decor : 4/5Service: 5/5Food : 5/5Cost : $$ ( $50 dinner for 2 )Worth the $ : yes Must try : Mojito and plantain chips NOTE: .The place has strong cigar smoke smell. But they have separate non smoking seatings available as well.Will visit again More...
Probably the best restaurant customer service I’ve ever experienced. Food is amazing. Atmosphere and music is a delight. And they keep playing cards on the tables- smart move! More...
The Ropa Vieja is good
Quite a pace, great food, diverse clientele, good jazz and affordable. Unique and wonderful
everything was so comforting. the food really spoke volume.. finally what i ordered tasted like what i ordered
The food was good but the portions were very small for the price. We ordered the paella for 2 and asked the waiter if there would be enough for 3 ladies. He said no way and told us to order 2 appetizers as well. We did what he said and then couldn’t finish the paella! More...

Downstairs it so loud we couldn’t hear each other - even after they turned down the music at my request. They an acoustics engineer. Here’s a local how-to article: https://www.richmond.com/…/article_e11028c6-f883-547b-8ab6-… More...
Had some good drinks at the bar
Great atmosphere Fantastic seafood
Had a New Years Eve dinner date here and it was amazing!
Wonderful food! Must try one of their mojitos! Quick service for freshly cooked food. The environment is casual and cool. Play some cards with the deck offered at your table. Great for friends and a fun date
Good food and service, authentic Cuban cuisine, enjoyable experience dining outside.

Lacking flavor in nearly every item our party of 8 had. Service was inattentive.
This place is super cool. Had a nice cigar and a few drinks. You can't go wrong. The bartender was on it all night. 5 stars.
Has some of the best food and atmosphere in Richmond. The wait staff and management is top notch. The last time I went there, management comped my drinks because the food was going to take a little longer than expected - turned out that this was because of something that was not even the restaurant's fault at all. Seriously this place is a good time. Will definitely be returning More...
the paella was excellent. waitress was wonderful
Havana 59 has solid Cuban-inspired dishes. The space is big, one section for smoking, a second for non-smoking, and an upstairs for salsa and dancing.For appetisers, the grilled prawns are tasty. They have a smokiness and brininess. The arroz con pollo is great. The half chicken is deboned and has a crispy outer skin. The rice is prepared in a pan seasoned with lots of spices and herbs. The dish was filling and I recommend it.Overall, great place for Cuban food. More...
Why is the dance floor non-air-conditioned
I had a blast! Latin dancing at it's finest;)
Loved the atmosphere and service. Nice downtown restaurant by train station
The Cuban breakfast sandwiches very good for $8 plus you can smoke cigars in the smoking section
Service can be 3 star at times and food is as expected no frills bar food with a Cuban twist. I enjoyed appetizers more so than entre. Cigar selection is pretty good. Nice location once construction is complete out front. More...
Love the ambiance and food.
Nice atmosphere, good food
The food was really good and there wasnt much waiting
This was our first visit and I said to my husband , “this is my new favorite place.” The service was great , very friendly and the food was wonderful. I had the Ropa Vieja and my husband the 59 Paella, appetizer was Cuban Nachos, very different and so good with a few Mojito’s to top it off. More...
Smelt like an ashtray. Hard to find
We enjoyed our experience. My husband prefers the downtown location for it’s atmosphere much better. However, great service and awesome bartender!
best service and food I have had in a long time great food
Angela Buchanan Fitzgerald
Food and staff were amazing. We will be going back.
First time there last night. Group from Work went. Waitress and food was outstanding!! They had free Salsa lesson starting at 8pm which drew a bunch of people in. Mainly females so I wasn’t complaining. Lol. Will definitely be back. By the way the red Sangria is very tasty and only $5 during happy hour � More...
Great service. I had Mofongo which was outstanding. Wife had paella which was spicy but great. No dessert vecause we enjoyed the entree too much. We will be back.

awesome atmosphere.. actually felt like we were in Havana...
Excellent...good food and great value - highly recommend.
Food was delicious and we had a party of eight and really enjoyed the atmosphere and the service was great.
Great food and service. We regularly dine at downtown Havana 59 so we were hesitant to try the west end version of the restaurant. While it doesn’t have the ambiance of downtown, it had everything else. We will definitely be back to experience the upstairs dining area. More...
Amazing apps and food but drinks were watered down and service is extremely slow.
Come eat the Latin flavors and dance like a star! Dancing will keep you happy, energetic and in great shape!
Good food, slooow kitchen on a busy Friday night. Worth a visit.
Paella, Paella, Paella!!!!..... and Island Mojitos!! A true Cuban Experience....
I have been comming to Havana for at least 20 years maybe 3-4 times a year ,I find it a multi-functional dining entertainment for me or my family,Tried Salsa dancing last Thursday nightAlways a good time with a Latin theme.
Great good and atmosphere !❤
Great experience all the way around!

Authentic Flavors and Atmosphere!!!
Havana 59 is fantastic. They have a great happy hour and the food is fantastic!
Love this place for Brunch!!!! Just have to get there way before 1pm. It gets busy and the way is longer than normal.
The food is just ok, but it's a fun place to grab an after dinner drink and smoke a cigar.
Awesome drinks and food, ropa vieja is great, ribs are delicious!
Atmosphere and cigars are great. Had a work function hosted there. Food and service were good but not 5stars.
Loved Salsa Night on Thursdays!! Be sure to wear closed toe heels.
Very festive and food is great. Will be back
Great time! Awesome Food!
Food is AMAZING here. One of the guest in my party couldn't seem to get anything she originally ordered because they were out. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Definitely visiting again when they have Salsa night More...
My wife and I really liked it here. We brought our kids (6 and 3). They didn't have a kids menu, but made accommodations to get them something they like. Would recommend.
Great drinks. Try the mojitos and caparanias
WestCoastTops Cabinetry and Countertops
Authentic and fresh Cuban-Latin Cuisine. Great atmosphere for couples, friends and large groups. Presentation is as delectable as the food. Love this place!
Havanna still has great mojitos the food for the most is also still good the prices have gone up. Happy hour is the best bargain. The customer service down hill. My waitress and Sokol waiter we're both rude I was having dinner with my husband we're still in the middle of casual conversation but still enjoying the ends of our entrees when the waitress walks over she puts her hand on my on my plate tapping it and says are you done with this. Needless to say at that point I was done. We heard the table behind us complaining about how long it took for the waitress to understand and get the order after 3 tries she returned to their table with still the wrong drinks and food.. More...
It has been 3 years since I was here and I still dream of this place, as it was my favorite combination of great atmosphere, attentive waitstaff and killer happy hour deals. Another mojito please! I found this bar/restaurant/cigar lovers paradise by accident while getting a haircut downtown in Richmond. After an extended happy hour I brought 20 people back with me the next day and we had an amazing time. The calamari was superb, as well as their seafood and plantains. I am looking for any reason to go back, as the music was great and we just had way too much fun! More...

My first visit here was on a beautiful spring day that the porch was open to let the breeze through.... lovely way to enjoy the day and watch the world go by with a mojito, a cigar, and some really flavorful black bean soup. (maybe not in that order) Every visit to H59 has been pleasant in some way. But that was the absolute best. The service is excellent. You'll crave the food. and the atmosphere is one of the best in town. More...
Havana 59 is such a unique spot. Cuban food obviously and the best mojito my wife and I had ever had. Quite a deal doing happy hour at only $5 each. And they are quite sizable. Highly recommend the Cuban nachos. Don't let the plaintain chips scare you away from this. They are amazing. More...
Amber N. Mayes
Hennessy mojitos and calamari!
A great place for food and drinks and they have different types of fries to choose delicious
We are traveling from miami to New York. Looking for Cuban restaurant I really recommend food is very good.
The food was amazing! They are fixing up the area out front for future outdoor seating. Wasn't able to see the upstairs area because a wedding had booked it for reception.
Mojitos, calamari, scallop cerviche, and chopped salad were all really good. Service excellent.
The pork chop was incredible and the building and ambiance is truly special. Good drinks and food service round out the experience
Nice Bar staff
Delicious food, unique atmosphere, smoking and non-smoking sections, this place is awesome!!! They've got the whole package: music, decor, drinks, cigars, food! 10 out of 10!!!
There wasn't anything for me to eat as a vegan, but the mojitos were amazing!
Amazing food and service.
Strawberry-Kiwi Mojito and a chocolate cigar. This was my first time here and it was beautiful. We arrived around 11pm, it was about 76 degrees outside. Service was good, and we were amongst good company. More...
Good mojitos. Thursday is great for dancing :)
Good cocktails, good cigars. Will be nice when construction finishes.
Tres bienEnvie de voir ce qu il se passe à l étageSalsa à gogo
I have never eaten here, but the drinks are great and on Thursday there is free salsa lesson which is a lot of fun!4 stars because I have yet to try the food
A fun atmosphere and decent service. The drinks are kind of pricey for what seems like not very alcoholic drinks. The food is expensive but I have yet to get anything that didn't taste great! I want to give this place 5 starts just because of the atmosphere, but I can't justify it because of the New York level prices. More...
Best food I’ve had in Richmond, and certainly the best Cubano sandwich I’ve ever had! The atmosphere is wonderful, with wrought iron street lamps, Latin music, and excellent service. My husband I will defiantly be back! More...
Great meeting place, salsa night is always good fun.
The cuban was great and their staff is top class.
Good food, great music. Latin Jazz Messengers where fantastic!
Best mojito ever. Jessica is a wonderful event planner.
I've enjoyed the place.
Upstairs for a private event in the summer. Great atmosphere!
