Success! Thanks for posting your review of El Floridita Restaurant. You’ve done the world some good today.

Overpriced and not worth the hype

If you want to eat good Cuban food then I don't believe this is the place. I've eaten at Versailles and the food is much better for half the price. I recently went to this restaurant for the first time and I was less than impressed to say the least. My friend and I spent about $150.00 for dinner and a couple of cocktails! This is extremely overpriced for two people especially at a place that serves mediocre food, dri... view more

I had a blast!

We celebrated my friend's birthday there on a Friday night. The table was reserved for 15 people. When I arrived it was pleasantly crowded and the live band was not playing yet. Our order was taken around 9:30pm and the food arrived one hour later. However the fare was definitely worth the waiting. I had grilled salmon with, rise and black refried beans, fried bananas and boiled veggies. The plate was generously pile... view more

Go Somewhere else

The place is small and feels like it's a latin sweet 15teen! Not a place where you want to be seen.\r
The food is average, but expensive for beans and rice. The drinks? expensive and not worth the money.\r
The service is okay. Make sure you take your second car! The valet guy lost my keys!? The bar tender is okay, but SHE(the little one) insists on big tips! save your money and PLEASE GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. like EL CHO

I had heard good things about this place so I swung by for an early dinner. Small intimate place with a dance floor.\r
Meat rice and beans were just so-so. The rice was very moist and flavorless and the beans were a bit bland. The meat (pork) was somewhat tasty but wasn't memorable. All though I didn't eat the bread it was sad to see that I was given a plain white bread roll. \r

I would call El Floridita a little taste of New York.

Ok, this is by far the best little kept secret in Hollywood. Best mojitos ever!!!! and, the skirt steak is great. They also have this tasty chimichurri sauce that is pretty darn good. The service is fun,friendly, and attentive. The place is small so dont expect a huge place. Reservations would be best or you will find yourself waiting. Guaranteed you will go back. I would recommend you try a Monday or Friday night, ... view more

Absolutely Wonderful

My husband and I walked from Pantages theater to have dinner here. When we first walked up I wasn't at all sure about this place. The outside is pretty bland. However, once inside it is adorable. We got there early so there was only a few other people there. I could see that it would be amazing with more people for dancing. Our server was fabulous and offered us mojitos right away. They were just what we needed. He a... view more

Great Place, Good Time

My wife and I enjoyed El Floridita last night. The service was fine, the food was great, the drinks hit the spot. This is a good place to go and have a good time. People celebrate here. There is no pretense. You don't have to be a great dancer either; just have fun.

Do not eat here

I genuinely detested my experience at this restaurant. I was rudely treated from the time I showed up and was told I didn't have a table (when I had spoken with someone 10 minutes earlier on the phone). The food was pathetic. The service was slow to non-existent. Overall, it is my least favorite cuban food in los angeles and the worst service I've had anywhere in a long time. You can do much better than this pla... view more

User review by brendabruin

El Floridita does not have much decor. It has really good live salsa music but be warned not a place for singles. If u wanna dance, bring a partner because everyone brings there own. My friends and I went there for my friends bday. SHe loves to dance but was disappointed when she didnt get to dance because she wasnt asked to dance and she normally is always asked. The food was really good but a bit overpriced. I've ... view more
