Default Good time at Havana

Last evening (Saturday) I went to Havana CC for the first time. I had heard from friends that the food was terrible and not to ever go there.

We were seated at a large booth, had a very personable waitress, drinks were very reasonable priced, entrees were reasonable priced - and everything tasted wonderful.

No complaints at all about Havana. I will be returning there.

We were at Havana on Friday evening with a group of approximately 20 people. All were seated together on the patio....service and food was very good.

Havana is definitely on my list of "return to" places.....

Nice to hear good comments about Havana as the place had been slammed in the past. Possibly new management in place which helped turn things around because that's what's gonna make or break the business. There's a whole lot that goes into overseeing the operation from food prep to service and a weak manager will take any establishment down to it's knees.

It is so nice to hear that Havanna is on the upswing as several people have complained about the food and service. It has some dishes that I will be looking forward to trying.

Has anyone tried the "pahella" lately. How was it?

Hey, Memason, Mr. Mac9 and I were there with a group also. Wasn't the entertainment great?! The singers, Goldyrox, will be around here a long time if they keep up that pace! They're going to be there for the next 3 Fridays.

Really glad to hear this as it is closest to our house in Hadley.

Does anyone know if management has changed lately? Well, one way or another, it is GOOD news!

Didn't someone post a couple of weeks ago that the food manager and much of his staff went to The Waterfront?

Good to hear. We will give it another try. It is such a great venue and has excellent decor. I hope they have made some positive changes.

Enjoyed lunch at Havana last Wednesday. They have a GREAT menu and the food was just as great! In fact, I think this was the most enjoyable meal of any club I've eaten at TV.

We were there Saturday night as well. Despite other comments, we have not had anything but a good experience at Havana. We often take guests there due to the consistency of food and service. We had guests with us on Saturday and they enjoyed the meal and the sunset.

Don (the former manager) did go to Amelia's at the Waterfront. don't know if anyone followed him. We frequent Havana's...there is a new Chef and he is doing a terrific job! Also... entertainment every night which is quite nice in my opinion.
