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

  • "This was my first time here with my husband and we were so glad we finally gave it a try. The live music set the tone for a real upbeat lively night. The food was delicious and the service was fantastic."

  • "Great authentic Cuban food. Straight from the appetizer to the desserts. And there House Sangria was very good just needed a bigger glass. The server I feel could have came by the table a few more times to check on things. Also they add/show you how much 18 percent for a tip would be. I was a party of 2 not a party of 8. I don't feel that's necessary. Other then that I would recommend this place."

  • "I called ahead to make a reservation, and when I got there I was stuck in the back room where we couldn't even see the entertainer.. Oh what we DID see was the back of the outside bar where all the DIRTY lunch dishes were piled up and the glasses with the remnants of drinks and food. After the bartender seeing my disappointed face, he then put up a privacy screen. C'Mon really. NOT HAPPY. Maybe it would have been a better experience if that didn't happen. Oh, Well."

  • "We went here to celebrate a birthday and had a great time. Our server was Carlos and he was great at recommending dishes and drinks too…very attentive! For appetizer I order the empanadas with different fillings and all were great but the spinach and goat was so delicious…3 of us shared and had plenty. For lunch we all shared the salmon with mango chutney, peril and the rice and beans. Delicious flavors and presented well. And for dessert…the chocolate empanadas were outstanding. For drinks I highly recommend the mango mojito…so good!! The best part was the Cuban band playing live!! Outstanding experience….will def go back!"

  • "Latin music band was great even though we ate between sets. Parking is still a bear as mall construction was ensuing. Free valet parking was unseen. Food was great. Recommend Vaca Frita, Picadillo, Mofongo, and Cuban Sandwich. Didn't see the Rabos Encedido, an unctuous oxtail dish. They push the Mojito, expectedly. The Passion Fruit Lemonade was tasty."

  • "My friends received their meals and mine was "on it's way". The server clearly forgot to enter my order, since it came about 20 minutes after everyone else's. I wish she would have been honest. Everyone's food got cold because they waited for mine to arrive. No apology, so it pretty much ruined our experience. All of our water glasses were literally empty and it was difficult to track down someone to get them refilled-It would be difficult to return. The food isn't cheap and the experience was poor."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "The food was great but the service needs a big improvement. We waited to be seated for a 5:00 pm reservation for about 20 minutes even though the place was fairly empty. We were then seated at a table that had been empty the entire time. The waitress was very friendly but had to be reminded to bring lemons to us three times. The main course arrived while we were still eating our appetizers!!! Never had that happen before, anywhere!!. I will probably go back again because the food was so good."

  • "This was our second time there and definitely our last one. Service was great, ambiance a bit loud but the food was tasteless. I love Cuban food and this was nothing close to Cuban food, even the plantains felt like they were cooked the day before. They need a new Chef!!!"

  • "Dunno if I would say its the BEST Cuban food but it was good. Id definitely come back. only issues I had was the service it seemed non existent dunno why for a Wednesday night. got to the table and there were forks missing. I dunno maybe it was an off night but id go again. oh and the tres leches dessert was AWESOME"

  • "Took my husband there for a birthday dinner. Waitress was very pushy. We didn't even finish our appetizers before she kept interrupting us about our entree. Literally she came to our table every 30 seconds. I told my husband they must be closing and if so then they should not allowed me to make a reservation for 9:30 So entree was ordered and given to us while we were still eating appetizers. We were there a few days ago when the last waitress was talking so much she forgot to order our appetizers. Too much congregating among staff. The roast pork monfongo was good but the monfongo can use sauce. It was very dry eating it with the meat. Love the music and overall friendly and smiling staff."

  • "A Cuban style restaurant with very good food. The braised pork shank, roast half chicken and skirt steak were excellent. The pulled pork dinner was not well received. Worthy of a second visit. Loud Cuban band was the downer, thank goodness we were a room away."

  • "This place is a gem. Had night out with hubby and we loved the food, service and especially the location. Our appetizer came quickly not long after our meal came. It was great. The perfect ending to the night - we were able to dance before heading home. AWESOME!!"

  • "Upon arriving, you're greeted by a warm, friendly staff. The live band is great entertainment for a night of fun. Unfortunately, our food did not arrive hot but the wait staff and manager went above and beyond to replace our meals and make the experience a wonderful one. I will definitely be returning soon!"

  • "Went with another couple on a Saturday night. Have a reservation and was promptly seated at the table near the back as requested. They had a live band playing but we found it to loud and at times it was hard to converse with our friends. Waiter was pleasant and knowledgeable when asked about the various dishes. We all enjoyed the food that we ordered although the service was slow and no one asked us if everything was okay during the meal. Drinks were pricey when you consider the small glasses that they are served in. 18% service charge was automatically added on to the bill for a party of 4 which is not common. To be fair, the waiter did tell us the gratuity had been added on."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."
