At Havana on the Drive you can get one of my favourite drinks in the city, the champagne sangria. Sooo good, and you get to eat the alcohol filled fruit at the end. Order a pitcher with some friends and have some of their new appetizers. Their new menu is actually quite tasty. For food we ordered the

Tostones - Fried plantain chips
Beef taquitos - Slow cooked skirt steak with pickled cabbage, sour cream, salsa, lettuce and white beans inside warm corn tortillas.

The atmosphere is also rad. Walls that have names and sayings scribed into them (done intentionally by the designer or done by the previous lease owners, I am not sure) and an art gallery in the back.

Champagne Sangria sounds amazing.

I've never actually sat down for a meal there because the two times I have tried to go the servers completely ignored us. We couldn't even get our name on the wait list for a table. A few other friends have mentioned the same lackluster service there - thoughts?

PS. Keep up the good work!

This experience for me was by far better than any previous visit that I have had.

The brunch I had months ago was bland and the service was very slow.

This time, service was good and so was the food.
