Cohiba Cuban Cuisine

2835 N. Broadway


We are kicking ourselves for not stopping into Cohiba @ 2835 N. Broadway in Lakeview and sampling the AWESOME Cuban Cuisine – UNTIL NOW!  We literally felt like we were stepping off Broadway and entering Cuba!  We were immediately welcomed and seated by one of the owners and we knew we were in store for something special!  Hospitable and fast service. Fresh quality food. Great price-point and best of all incredible, scrumptious and palatable, authentic Cuban cuisine.  This was truly a wonderful and unexpected surprise! I

We ordered the Cohiba Philly Steak sandwich which was full-flavored, seasoned to perfection, succulent and melt-in-your mouth tender. It was a huge with fresh crisp red and green peppers.

We also had the Sandwich de  Lechon (pork) con Salsa Barbecue which was super tender and bursting with taste!  Both came with mounds of sweet plantains – a nice break from fries and salty chips.

We LOVE that Cohiba is BYOB – but the best part is the sell pre-mixed cocktails – all you do is add the alcohol!  We had the best virgin (we were working) Pina Colada ever – it was served in a hallowed out pineapple!

The interior of the restaurant is small but modern with exposed brick walls, hardwood floors, a faux fireplace, large glass windows. There were three tables at the large front windows, three booths and a few tables in the center. We sat at the center table next to the large glass windows. It is a casual yet intimate restaurant. The restaurant had Cuban music playing.  The vibe here was great. We enjoyed our food very much. We can’t wait to return again and again. Next time, we plan to bring a bottle of wine.
