We like to go to this place before our Lesher Theater events. They have drinks by the pitcher. The food is really tasty with a variety of small plates.

We scheduled a dinner here for a large work dinner. There were some things that were wonderful like the scallop appetizers, the shredded pork pupusas and the tuna. But some of the dishes, like the paella and their special maduros plantain dessert were less than average. The banana ice cream that came with the fried plantains was excellent. The service... More

Five of us had lunch there. We ordered a Cuban wedge salad and sandwiches: 2 Shrimp po'Boy, one Bistec and one Eggplant. It took forever for the food to come out, even though there was only one other couple there. There seemed to be just one waiter but can't be too hard with only seven customers there but he was...

Hadn't been here for a while & didn't realize Havana had expanded to include a real dining room. Service was excellent. Dining room isn't large, & tables are VERY close together which I'm sure contributes to the loud noise level. 4 of shared 2 appetizers: crab cakes and shrimp ceviche. Both were nicely presented and flavorful. The 2 crab cakes... More

We have enjoyed Tapas all over the world and who would have thought that we'd find some of the best in Walnut Creek?? The entire menu is good but the Tapas selection is varied, excellent and authentic. The mojitos here are as good as you will get anywhere, too. The ambience is pure Havana - right down to the fascinating... More

We have been here several times, but may not return. I made a reservation through open table, specifically in the side room because it is quieter than the main restaurant/bar. There was a private party in this room, but no one from the restaurant called to inform me that the room was booked for the evening. Had we known we... More

Had a catered dinner for 10 in our home by Havana. They were excellent to work with, very friendly, responsive, and professional. Delivery came right on time. Food items were brought warm in foil containers, each labeled. Although the crab cakes were a bit dry, everything else was quite tasty and well seasoned. We particularly liked the chicken dish. It...

We were drawn to this restaurant having lived in Miami and having enjoyed real authentic Cuban cuisine. The decor here is very attractive with pictures of old Havana on the walls, but the two large TV screens kind of sap the real ambience. Some dishes are excellent but my Cuban sandwich wasn't. Their chef would benefit from spending time on... More
