Overall the food was good except for one thing. We wish that Charred Octopus would have been a little tender.

There must have been only one person in the kitchen since we were only 3 tables and it took our food 35 minutes to arrive.

I love Casa Cana, this time it was quiet because there weren't many people (I went there at 2/3pm) but it is usually super noisy when they have a full restaurant. Food is fantastic and the atmosphere is super cool (I love the decoration!)

A great attempt to bring Latin flavors to the city of Boston. But, not quite there. The pro's: good portion, quality food, and almost very authentic flavors. The cons mainly are the service staff. Lack of knowledge of Latin cuisine and minimal suggestion.

Our first time in we had entrees and were quite pleased. Our second visit was not memorable. This visit was for a drink and apps. Pleasant and friendly staff served up a tasty cocktail seemngly devoid of liquor and apps that were wholly unimpresive. Sadly, the best I can say was the visit was disappointing.

Funky place in an updated 1960’s vintage hotel. Food was good, waitress was nice, funny, personable. Service itself was a little slow but we were having fun so it didn’t matter that much.

They were having a show there that night, so service ended up being rather slow for anyone not attending the show, but the food and drinks were very good.

Service was slow. We were at our table for long periods of time without the waitress attending to us. She was also not knowledgeable of menu items and create a huge mishap charging my visa. Overall I was hopeful when I saw the cool ambiance however was let down by everything else.

Casa Caña is a fun place to dine on a Friday night. It has good food, a lively bar scene and a lovely patio/outside cocktail area with tables, chairs and couches. The night we were there, they were hosting a “Cuban Evening” with live latin music, salsa instruction and dancing. Our waiter, was friendly, informative and attentive. The menu has many appetizers and small plates and also offers a few larger entrée options. At our server’s suggestion, we ordered a sample plate of appetizers and then fish tacos. Everything arrived in a timely manner and was delicious. I would highly recommend Casa Caña.

Specifically requested three times (1. Via email, 2. Over the telephone, 3. In person) that the dessert should have a candle placed in it as the meal was to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Complete failure when dessert was served. No candle no special effort made.

Showed up and said they were closed. Had an event earlier and decided to close for the evening to clean up. If they decided to close then I should have been informed and should not have been allowed to make a reservation. Wasted my time and my dates time.

The food was extremely good, but the service left much to be desired. It seemed like they were getting ready for an event, and it looked like they were understaffed. We waiting 30 minutes just for drinks and to order food, which looked like other people had the same experience. It was okay though, because it was a beautiful day and we were listening to the live music. All-in-all would come back again.

We had reserved a table for a group of 8. Walking in, it had the Latin feel and looked to have just the right kind of atmosphere we were looking for. However, from that point onward it was a battle to try and get service! it took about 15 minutes before our drinks order was taken and an additional 30 min before our food order was taken. The only reason we waited "only" an additional 30 to place our food order is because I personally went up to someone who looked to be in charge and asked for a host to come over to our table. BTW, the restaurant was not full. Furthermore, it took well over 30 minutes for our drinks to arrive at the table.
On the plus side, the cocktails (once they arrived) were very good and the food was very tasty.
Currently, I would not recommend this restaurant, just based on the frustrating service experience. However, I do recognize that this restaurant has great potential and, if service was to improve, could be an awesome place.
