I came here with great expectations. There are recipes that i used to make, and have missed in recent years, like arroz con pollo, so i was really excited to see them on the menu. but it was all arroz and no pollo, and the other items that my companions chose were pretty much the same. Okay, but nothing worth... More

We expected good Cuban food, but we actually found that the food was "exquisite." The service was good, and the atmosphere was friendly, I am so happy someone suggested this restaurant!

Coffee was great. Place looked a little dingy. Waitress horrible. Decided not to order any food though the place had been recommended to us.

I think that says it all. I guess since 18% gratuity they don't care about the quality of service. ..................................

Tried the Media Noche. Very good sandwich. We went on a Sunday for lunch at 1 PM. Service was very slow, and was a bit tight in there. Overall the food was good

food was pretty good and the atmosphere was quaint and quiet. Staff were not friendly however and seemed annoyed we did not speak fluent Spanish. We were referred by our tour guide on Big Bus Tours so we thought it would be great.

My family and I have been eating here for well over 30 years. The food and service has always been GREAT! I've ordered breakfast, lunch or dinner. They've always been consistent. When I have family in town, ESQUISITO restaurant is where we go. Thank you!
