    Lively bartenders, amazing sangria (white and red are awesome!), try the rainbow ceviche. Separate gluten free menu made ordering super easy. A+

    Alma de Cuba recalls colonial Havana and evokes the sensual essence of Latin America. Each of the 3 floors while providing an array of bold flavors to satisfy every palette.

    An interesting and delicious take on Cuban food! Start off with a Ceviche or Chorizo Sliders, and then make room for the Crispy Roasted Pork.

    The bread they bring you in the begging may be the best part about this but the duck is really good too as is the salmon.

    Service is hit or miss. Ours dragged on forever while some tables near us turned quickly. Order the Vaca Frita and the Vanilla Flan. Skip the Coconut Tapioca and the Caipirinha.

    I had a spectacular experience here. Wait staff was delightful and when they accidentally misplaced the meal I asked to have wrapped up, they gave me an entire new meal!

    The vibe was super-cool 10 years ago. Not so much today. But Alma is still the standby for groups who want one more drink at the end of the night. Inevitably, they end up having more than one more.
