Havana is an okay restaurant. Everything was good, but not great. The flavors were not from Cuba, nor were they Spanish, they were good, but not great. We had some rum, which was probably the highlight of the meal, a variety of tapas, and a chicken entree. At the end of the meal we looked at each other and said... More

The food is pretty good here! I enjoyed the black bean soup and had the citrus chicken. Took a little while for the food to come out. The staff were very friendly. The restaurant is clean. Will return.

We saw this restaurant in Walnut Creek and had to try it as we really liked the food in Cuba. This restaurant did not disappoint. Our meals were terrific. We had the skirt steak and the pork and both were delicious. The desserts were memorable. (Try the chocolate!). Service was terrific and very friendly. A place to go back!

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
