Most of the food was good, the mojito not good enough for a second, the music was Cuban until they ran out?? then rap, the bathroom.... I should have gone before we left home. The real problem was when the bill came and they wouldn't honor our gift certificate. It wasn't expired and was signed by one of their employees. Our waiter said he didn't know what to do with it. The owner, Peter, said on my seventh call to him, that he'd look it up and either credit my card the next day, or call me if there was some sort of problem...... that was two weeks ago.
Selling gift certificates and not honoring them seems a bit fraudulent to me, and not following through with a credit or call. That's rude. If you want good authentic Cuban with great hospitality I'd suggest Mojito Cafe on Lake City (not related to Western Ave. location). The guys there do a fabulous job. The food is unbelievably terrific, the music is great, the drinks are out of this world. And I know they return phone calls!
