Diner Reviews
  • "This is a great place to eat. The food is outstanding and the drinks are great as well. the place is a little small so whenever someone has to go to the restroom, you will have to move in your seat. The best thing about the restaurant is that is reasonably priced. You won't experience sticker shock with the menu. This is a great place to take your spouse, girlfriend, or go out as a group to eat."

  • "The ambiance was amazing! I went on a Friday night so a live band was playing. Almost felt like I was on vacation. The food was great too. I opted for the arroz con pollo which was delicious and the portions are definitely more than enough."

  • "The food was good but slightly under-seasoned. Overall the experience was good though because the place is run like a family establishment with excellent and courteous service. There was also a live band on Sunday that was excellent."

  • "I enjoy my dining experience every time I go to Amor Cubano. The ambiance is warm, friendly and one can easily forget they're in Spanish Harlem and not Miami. The Vaca Frita is always flavorful and delicious and their Coconut Mojito is my fave drink. I recommend this place to all my friends and family."

  • "Absolutely wonderful. Brought my son here for his 25th birthday celebration. Everything from the drinks to the food and service were excellent. Hostess was very warm and welcoming. I had called earlier in the day and spoke to Vivian, the hostess to figure out the best way to get to the restaurant since the weather was bad. Vivian was very helpful with her suggestions. The food was exceptional. Everything was as we hoped and expected it to be."

  • "We have been to Amor Cubano many times and each time we go it does not disappointment. The service and the food is excellent. Its small and cozy and the live music is a plus later in the evening if you are looking for some entertainment with your dinner. This is my go to place when we have family and friends from out of town to show them a good time with great food."

  • "This place is in the heart of east Harlem. Vibrant neighborhood, the hostess was welcoming and the waitress was sweet and attentive. The drinks were strong and delicious. We had the grilled steak, paella and arozz con pollo. Everything was cooked perfectly. Don't forget to order the chocolate cake with ice cream for dessert. They dim the lights and the live music with a singer with tons of energy made the place come alive. Can't wait to go back!"

  • "Kisses to Armor Cubano. We dined there on Thanksgiving and found it to be exactly what we wanted - a taste of the tropics on a cold day. Although they offered traditional turkey dinner, we opted for cerviche and then paella and tres-leches cake for dessert. A couple of mojitos, cafe con leche with Sambuca and it was a wonderful day. The price was right too. The staff was solicitous. The bartender was generous. I highly recommend Amor Cubano."

  • "We've been to Amor Cubano several times now and have really enjoyed the energy and vibe. The food is always outstanding, flavourful and different. New to the east side of Harlem we've found many great local restaurants but few sit down dining joints, Amor Cubano is the exception. This past Thanksgiving we had a last minute change of plans and decided to go out to eat, Amor Cubano was not only open but has a special Thanksgiving meal that was fabulous. Always to accompany any meal there was a pitcher of Sangria, perfectly sized and always refreshing."

  • "I dont know why but I expected this place to be more lively and bustling. The outside looked kind of bland, perhaps the owners should brighten it up to bring more attention to it. However the inside was very nice! Very clean and the staff very very friendly. The food was nicely presented to us and very good. I would love to again whem there is a crowd and when they have live music. I would definately recommend this place!"
