has reviewed Cuba Libre, and it wasn't all smiles.
He complains about being briefed at the beginning of each meal--which we agree with, but all-in-all, Cuba Libre is a tourist restaurant. So it's usually everyone's first time. He also tells the staff to ease up on the sales pitches, which do get beyond annoying at the 9th and H restaurant.
He also says his food has gotten worse each visit. That is what we expected of a tourist restaurant, but have not experienced like he has. Contrarily, our food has gotten better and better.
Sietsema complains about the noise in the restaurant--a complaint that we have heard frequently and sympathize with. However, he also reports that the restaurant's owners are investing in $30,000 worth of sound absorbers.
He concludes with these words: "Cuba Libre looks like a place for tourists -- and too often lives down to that archetype."
