All arond good experience – Up in SF on business. Took one of my customers there. Great food, great ambience, and most memorable was the service. My customer is a total JO and the server put up with him. I'd definitely go back.

Adventure ride for the taste buds – Ok, I was a bit sceptical of CRUNCHY wasabi mashed potatos, but wow...were they delicious! The Seared ahi and that went on top was also very good.

The Calamari salad was simply amazing. I am not sure what kind of dressing they used, but I will definately order that again!

Expensive, but if you have the money... – All the portions are family style. The cocktails are all served in a cocktail glass, but are way too expensive for the size of the glass. The food is good too, but very expensive. My girlfriend and I had the lobster potstickers (amazing if you like lobster!), a fried rock shrimp speciality, and a side of panko crusted crispy plantains. We ate a lot and still had food left over. The bill with those three dishes and two cocktails came out to almost $90. The food is good, but not for that price. The atmosphere is nice. Dim lights, comfortable seats, etc. The crowd was mostly men and woman in their 30s and 40s.

Best overall experience anywhere! – I took my boyfriend here for our anniversary because many friends of mine had said it was THE place to go. First of all the restaurant has an amazing atmosphere. The decor and the music was perfect and we were sat at the amazing booth that was totally romantic. When we went to order, the waiter gave us suggestions that ended up making our meal perfect. The dishes are expensive but he informed us that they are meant to be shared, so we got an appetizer, a main dish and one side dish. The food was absolutely amazing! (and so were the cocktails). After dinner, we ordered dessert and the waiter warned us it would be large. It was gigantic, four people could have split this piece of cake, but we ended up taking it home for later. I'd have to say that this was the best dining experience I have ever had.

This place is worth a try – After making the reservation, I was upset to read so many negative reviews. How could this place be so bad? Further inspection was required. Our waiter gave us the low-down of how portions are family style, which was good to know. The choices on both the app and main side of the menu were many, and difficult to nail down. We decided on the Thai beef salad and the duck app, followed by the miso glazed butter fish. All 3 were quite good, especially the salad and the fish. Presentation was impressive, portions were generous. The coconut banana cake that we had would have been perfect for a wedding cake. Huuge. Too much. How could we still fit in our clothes and still look good for the Redwood Room? In all, it was a great dining experience. Always good to prove the downers wrong. Check it out.

THE FOOD IS NASTY...STAY AWAY!!! – Didn't meet expectations. EXTREMELY disappointed. Go for cocktails, but that's all its good for.

Portion and presentation well appreciated, unfortunately it's inedible-very bland. Lobster potstickers DOA (I see a trend). It's a shame I ate my side of coconut rice more than my entree-the Cuban Chicken.

Food is mediocre! Like bad homecooking you had to eat to be polite. Quality that I expect was not there, fusion of elements were more like a science experiment, than delectable and tantalizing. I agree with fusion, but it just didn't flow. Some ingredients are not meant to go together.

Server shouldn't be pushy and upsell. Annoying! His service couldn't compare to Levende Lounge, Bouchon, Postrio, Oola, Anzu and The Slanted Door. They strive for excellent customer service, that's what makes a customer return and the experience memorable. I tipped, but it wasn't well deserved. =(

Horrible Food but Great Service...go ELSEWHERE! – There are 3 key areas of a fine dinning experience:

great service, great ambiance and MOST importantly great food.

Asia de Cuba DOES NOT MEET 2 OF THESE

1 - Food is not worth 1/3 of the cost

2 - Tables are so close your private romantic dinner is shared with everyone else. The decor and scene very trendy.

3 - Service very good

My tip go there for a drink and use the same amount of money for a real dinning experience. (Try Gary Danko)

Fantastic – So I read the other reviews before going to Asia de Cuba this past Tuesday and all I can say is that those people are crazy. The service was stellar. Not only was our server knowledgable about the food and the wine he was very helpful in navigating us through the history of CLIFT. The food was delicious. The Beef Shortribs melt in your mouth, the Lobster Mash is sinful and the Cielo de Coco is the not only the largest dessert I have seen but the best.

I highly recommend that you experience this restaurant at least once. It is phenominal from the time you walk in to the time you leave.
