Place had good ambiance and staff was very nice, however, the food left a lot to be desired. although I used the Groupon,i spent an addtnal $130, just trying to see if could find a better dish (and 4 glasses of wine). a few of the appetizers are ok and the meals that did not contain meat/steak seem to be ok. I had the filet mignon/skirt steak and it was the WORST I have ever had. Overpriced for the food. On the up side, if you want a place wth good ambiance, decent appetizers and nice staff, it's ok... Or maybe, it was just a bad day for the chef.... The manger even gave us 2 glasses of prosecco on the house, don't know why... Maybe my expectation was too high becasue I read a few reviews and articles. I guess the place is ok to go have a couple of drinks and appetizers. Don't know if I'd give it another try though, I'd have to think about it.

THE FOOD WAS EXCELLENT.THE PRESENTATION BEAUTIFUL HOWEVER,THE SERVICE WAS NOT. THE WAITER DISAPPEARED FOR LONG PERIODS, THEY BROUGHT ONE SMALL PIECE OF PAN DE BONO PER PERSON AT THE BEGINNING OF THE MEAL AND DID NOT BRING MORE BREAD DURING THE MAIN COURSE SERVINGS EVEN THOUGH I ASKED FOR SOME. IT TOOK TOO LONG BETWEEN THE SERVING OF THE VARIOUS COURSES.(THE RESTAURANT WAS HALF EMPTY). MAYBE IT WAS TUESDAY NIGHT AND THEY WERE SHORT OF HELP, BUT STILL, AT THOSE PRICES, I EXPECTED BETTER SERVICE

From Our Editors

Though Chef Douglas Rodriguez's take on Latin cuisine is contemporary, he's no newcomer to the restaurant scene. SunPost Weekly credits him with propelling award-winning eateries including Wet Paint Cafe, the original Yuca, and Patria in New York to star status. At De Rodriguez Cuba, adjacent to the five-star Hilton's Bentley Beach Club, the executive chef channels his decorated career into a menu of Havana-inspired dishes and signature ceviches crafted from sustainable seafood. He steeps lobster, shrimp, and crab in the tangy notes of coconut milk, lime, and ginger for the thai coconut seafood ceviche and tops the popular vaca frita entree with avocado and tomato chimichurri. Complemented by Cuban cocktails or a sip from the large wine list, the dishes evoke images of the islands.

The eatery's decor also contributes Caribbean character, stealing the spotlight in a Miami Beach magazine piece. According to the article, "guests can sit poolside or in the lovely dining salon facing the sea," or they can set up shop at the 25-foot ceviche bar in a space "that's all dark woods and serene white curtains." Scattered palm trees and large green lounge chairs border one side of the pool, the other bank crowded with crimson-trimmed tan couches that melt seamlessly into the open dining room. The sweet notes of live music fill the age-worn slats above the bar, beside which an aquarium teems with fish like the fridge of a hibernating bear.
