Excellent food. Service was a little slow but the food was great so the wait was definitely worth it. I would certainly recommend the appetizers while waiting for the main meal. The atmosphere was very pleasant and the waiters hovered around attentively. The tequila was...More

Not a good lunch today. The cuban sanwhich In my opinion had too much mayo, too much mustard, the bread was stale, not pressed enough, the pork and ham was not appealing to the palate! And I didn't, along with my wife feel good afterwards.

Cuban food is one of my favorite cuisines. The Black Bean has a broad menu of standards, though they aren't always available. The day we visited they were out of Picadillo and Arroz con Pollo. But the Ropa Vieja was outstanding, as was the Mojo...More

Thought of Black Bean because of their outside seating and varied menu. Glad I did! The atmosphere inside had improved considerably since I'd been brighter and less "whole in the wall" feel. The the menu was a step up too. Good choices, very detailed. We...More
