A word from Havana Central Roosevelt Field Mall
Havana Central transports you to pre-Revolution Cuba with swanky decor, lively jazz, relaxing bar and beloved recipes. Traditional Cuban cooking is a labor of love: many dishes are slow-cooked over low heat and require constant attention to create that perfect flavor. Executive Chef Stanley Licairac has mastered the patience and style necessary to recreate old-world Cuban classics.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Wide variety of food and drinks, everything is tasty, a friendly and well-trained staff, and great location."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "I received a coupon for a free birthday entree and dessert. They accommodated my request for an appetizer instead of dessert without a problem. The birthday freebie was well worth the visit. I really enjoyed the salmon entree. I will definitely return again soon."

  • "This was a really great dining experience. I went with a co worker right after work for dinner. Our greeting by Adriana was good. We liked where we were seated at first. The only reason I say at first because later on in the evening the live band started to play. It was too loud to carry on a conversation. This isn't really a complaint because I don't expect a quiet atmosphere at Havana. I ordered Guava Ribs...again! This is my favorite dish here. They were delicious and filling. I also enjoyed my avocado salad. Our server was Gretty. She was so sweet and very attentive."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "We were very happy with our overall dining experience. Seated promptly after running a few minutes late for our reservations, waitress was very attentive and genuinely sweet. food arrived in a timely fashion and tasted great. Extensive drink list including non-alcoholic drinks."

  • "food was unappetizing, cold, took over 25 mins to get."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "The easiest way for a server to make tips? Sell alcohol! We had to ask more than once for our drinks, server didn't know the specials, and kept us waiting over 2o minutes for our drink orders! Our section wasn't busy, but she never made eye contact so we could get her attention, whether it was a fork or a glass of water. I saw the reviews and did heed the warning, but I was surprised since the place wasn't busy yet. Food was tasty, but when the service sucks, it makes you forget about the food. We were there to celebrate Father's day and my boyfriend's birthday. I expected the place to be busy and the service to be slow because of it...but that was not the case that day. It was still empty when we were there, and we were ignored."

  • "The food was awesome, loved it! Service was slow, but waiter was extremely nice and friendly. The music was definitely too loud, very hard to have a conversation, although the music was good and added to the ambience. Would like to go again"
    Dined on 6/26/2014

  • "If you're looking for a midweek place, Havana Central is great! We love the food, the atmosphere was chic and relaxing and the best was how quick the service was without compromising the level of service. We went on a Tuesday night with our little guy under the age of 2. Right off the bat that would worry most parents and patrons. But I was prepared with snacks and entertainment. Still, it was very much appriciated we got seated right away in a roomy booth meant for 5 or 6 in the back close to the bathroom without being in the bathroom :) The food was delicious, with ok portion sizes. But with Cuban food, one can never get enough! Our server was very attentive without hovering. I don't drink so I can't comment on their drinks."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "We were seated right away and had a large booth for the 5 of us. The service was very good and so is the food. There was live music and a number of the customers danced to the Latin music. Only complaint we had was we were too close to the band and it seriously interfered with conversation."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "My family went for an early dinner for my husbands birthday. The menu had a wide range to choose from to satisfy all the different taste in the family. It was an overall pleasant experience. I am planning on bringing my father -in-law for his birthday!"

  • "Had reservations for 1045 and was running few minutes late. Once we got there, we were greeted and seated right away. Service was very good and the food was great. Ambiance was nice. Recommend the mango salmon with yellow rice and beans."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "After arriving early for our reservation and being seated promptly, we waited a LONGGGG time for our drinks and our appetizers, and another LONGGG time for our meals to be served. If it was not for the company of the 3 other people in my party, I would have been pretty angry. Especially after watching other tables that were seated after us and served before us. In all, I think we waited well over an hour to get our food. Our drinks probably took 30-40 minutes, funny because we were at a table so close to the bar I could reach my finger tips out and touch it. So, I could see what the bartender was doing, and probably could have stood up and asked for my drink and get it much quicker than we did."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We order our appetizers and for some reason the waiter forgot. Its better for the waiter to write down what the people want because they can forget just lik our situation.. We were dying to eat our dinner with mango sauce that should be in the table but the waiter said the restaurant ran out. How does that happen. Our fathers day dinner didnt go as planned. The food was slacking it wasnt like that when havana central opened for the first time. Im seeing waiters hanging around like if there is nothing else to do. I dont kno if im coming back. My experience was horrible."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Was immediately seated upon entering. Waiter seemed unenthusiastic and after the 1st drink we had to flag him down for any additional requests. The food was ok (empanadas were great)"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I was not sure what to expect after we had to wait an additional 30 mins after our reservation time was for and we showed up 15 mins early (total 45min wait uggg) but the server was kind and attentive, they brought the wrong appetizer and made up for it by just bringing more of the correct one. All food was hot, fresh and inspired. We will be back !"

  • "From the moment we walked in to the moment we left, our experience was amazing. All the staff are so cheery and happy to help. My sister even made a comment about one of the waitresses. She said "wow she's in a good mood!" Not one person with attitude. The food was to die for. And, might I add, I have tried many flans in my lifetime and have NEVER been a flan fan, I was going to order 2 of them it was so delicious. Even the soap in the bathroom smelled great LOL. Definitely recommend! Thank you Havana Central!"

  • "Food was great, but it took awhile for waitress to even address us and take our order. Waited about 15 minutes. I also had a reservation and was told to wait cause they were cleaning my table. Waited about an additional 20 mins to be seated at a table that was cleared the whole time I was there.

  • "This was the second visit to your restaurant, my first was so pleasant that I've decided revisit. This experience was not forgiving as it took several hours to obtain my dinner. First the waiter introduce his self and came back to take my order 15 mins after, I thought he had forgotten about my table. After taken my order for appetizers it took 20 mins to come back. By that time I was ready for my main course of which a second waiter saw I was waiting and took my order. This was such back service I will thinking twice before I visit your restaurant again."

  • "first time there. went to celebrate my relative's birthday. brought my toddler as well. tables are remarkably small in size for such a large place. food was really good. we had the churrasco, the vaca frita (i loved it) and the ropa vieja; everything was delicious and well prepared. nice portions and beautifully served. we had mojitos that did have rum in them. one was enough for me to leave somewhat tipsy. the only bad part was dessert. we had the tres leches cake; it was so-so. our server was nice but, could've been nicer. he was just ok. the live music was amazing. if anything you should go there for that. not a romantic place at all. after all, it's a chain. i recommend it for groups, low-key dinning and going with kids."

  • "My whole table of 7 didn't care for there food including me. Didn't receive my flan for my bday and when mentioned it she's evened like it was a burden so I didn't bother caring. The band was nice so they should just make it a lounge."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "The food is good here, otherwise I wouldn't keep coming. The staff was friendly, but while there were plenty of tables available, each time I've come the hostess wouldn't seat me until the other person arrived. It was unnecessary & uncomfortable for me to have to wait on the front bench. I would've liked to sit & order a drink while I waited. I understand this being a policy for larger parties that might not arrive, but even if my friend didn't show up I'd still be sitting at a table for 2. "

  • "Long Island has really been lacking a good Cuban restaurant with style. Havana Central has just that and great food also. We have been there three times and have not been disappointed. We are especially fond of the pork mufungo and the drinks are great also. It can get a little noisy especially if the music is playing but you can not beat the food."
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "We arrived about 3:30 and was able to order the lunch specials. I ordered "Ropa vieja" which was okay kinda bland it needed a little more spices. Mojitos were very good and waiters and waitress were kind. I was not happy with the appetizer tray . I think it was overpriced . two little wing drums,two small corns, two empanadas and small chorizos was not impressed and again over priced. The plantains were very oily and seems to be frozen ones. Price for lunch was reasonable and enough food."
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "Food was very good and had great flavor. However, our food was late and several plates were missed and we had to wait longer to get them. In the intrim, we couldn't start eating because not everyone un our party had their food. Also the servers didn't place our food on the table they were handing it to us. The same with the cleanup. Silverware was not provided until we asked for it and the guy came he was not happy. He didn't even say hello or apologized. The bathrooms were dirty and garbage overflowing. The overall decor was dark and not inviting. I would not go back. "

  • "The food is wonderful and authentic. The only drawback is that you should turn down the music decibals so that you can hear the people you are dining with without yelling."
