Diner Reviews
  • "We started with the drink specials of the day, Mango Mojito and a Pineapple Mojito. Both were superb. there was a hint of each flavor not overly done. They used suger cane slice as a garnish/stirring rod. Nice touch. We had the assorted empanadas and the black and red bean soup. All were outstanding. The wait staff had pride in the restaurant and its food. Prices were very good bang for the buck. great experience and we will be back"

  • "appetizer was mediocre: lobster empanada... one meal sent back: pork medallions were dried out. Waiter didn't appear happy about returning it. We both ordered shrimp in a wine garlic sauce which was very tasty."

  • "We were greated by a very enthusiastic, professional staff. I was coming from Jersey and my party was already there as I slowly made progress towards the Lincoln Tunnel traffic. I called to give my party's name and when she got there, the manager greeted her by name, which she found very impressive and made me also come out smelling like roses. Our waiter was awesome and helped suggest some delicious meals we would have missed. To put the icing on the cake, one of the owner's became our friend when he came to introduce himself. We talked about visiting Cuba and he brought us two shots of this drink spiked with several spices and herbs. The best shot I ever had. The after taste lingered in my happy mouth for miles and a while as I drove home"

  • "As always, my resevation was honored, the service was excellent, and the food delicious. I only wish that, like so many other restaurants, they had a lunch menu. The menu and prices at lunch are the same as at dinner. If they had a reduced price lunch menu, I would lunch at HavanaNY much more often."

  • "I had the pleasure of dining with my friend and although warm (I don't think the AC reached the front of the restaurant) the service was very good and the food was as well. Our waiter was well versed in the specials of the day and recommended a few delicacies. My friend and I had the shrimp and chicken in garlic sauce, respectively and the calamari and ham croquettes. All in all the experience was very good!"

  • "The young woman at the bar was wonderful, she's friendly and thoughtful. There was no one else in the restaurant and yet the waiter was not very friendly and was rushing us. We had some questions but he would rather have been somewhere else. It's a very cute place and I will go back."

  • "This was a great little find, perfect for a lovely dinner with friends. The food was really tasty, and not too expensive. Though it was a little loud, the atmosphere was pleasantly vibrant and the wait staff was attentive and friendly. If you're looking to hang out with friends or you just want to enjoy need a quick bite after shopping, Havana is a good place to try."

  • "Went there for lunch with reservations at noon. It wasn't crowded, but once 1230 rolled around the place was packed and it was hard to hear, but hey, that's a good sign! It's a small space but still has a nice atmosphere. Great food and great staff. I'll recommend this restaurant and I will return again. The Goat was tender and flavorful. The meat came right off the bone. My friend who joined me for lunch tried it and said it was the best goat he's had. Kudos Havana NY!"

  • "Very good food, good service and fair prices made for an enjoyable evening at Havana New York. The portions were generous and the presentation well done. The dining room is located way in the back and while nice was not particularly special and made me a bit apprehensive but the concerns were quickly dispelled by the food"

  • "I have been to Havana NY four times and loved every single time. Our most recent visit, my boyfriend and I took his brother to Havana for his birthday. The food was fantastic, he had the fish special that day and cleaned his plate! The restaurant brought over a dessert and the chef came to our table to wish him a happy birthday. The Happy Hour deals are amazing. The Empanadas are my favorite thing on the menu! "

The ambience of the restaurant was amazing, you felt like you stepped into a Latin world. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone. Next time I'm in the city I'm going there again."

  • "This little place has it all, terrific food, fun ambiance and helpful waitstaff. Went here with a group of seven and we were so pleased that we choose this spot for dinner. Prices were really reasonable for a delicious New York dinner. Great menu and the food matched it. (not always the case...) Service was outstanding. Get the pork on the bone. Wow. Yum. Go and have fun. We certainly did. Thanks Havana. You deserve your great reviews."

  • "..with the exception of the inexperienced greeter , who would not sit us in an totally empty restaurant ! Because our third person hadn't arrived yet.. After convincing him she was right behind us .. He sat us at the very worst table! Of course we moved.. (Ourselves!) But after that awful person disappeared... It was great! Our waiter was perfect.. The food was fantastic .. And I would absolutely return and explore more dishes..servings were very good and the food was just delicious .. Even the simple tea served with a spoonful of coconut was inventive.. U could feel the care and attention to the details and presentation of the food. Now one of my fav's"

  • "Upon arrival, we were greeted by a very accommodating maitre d and friendly staff. An energetic and crowded bar scene suggested this would be a great experience. The food, however, was disappointing at best. The beef empanadas tasted like spoiled meat. The dry chicken in the chicken and rice was not edible. The rice, itself, had little test. I would not return."

  • "All of our party were disappointed by the food, though the waiter was very enthusiastic about the specials. However, in hindsight I don't think even he believed what he was saying. He promoted a special appetizer - basically a garlic based broth with seafood - as being a crowd pleaser because of the aroma. So we ordered it and were totally underwhelmed. It was served on a huge platter, covered - but when the cover was removed it revealed the tiniest dimple sized shallow in the middle that had the teeny tiniest little shrimp, clam and mussels. Then we got our food, which no one liked. My garlic chicken was overcooked, rubbery and tasteless. With no notice, I was charged $1 extra for boneless, and $1 for a little tiny cup of hot sauce."

  • "We had a very enjoyable dining experience. Our server, Starlin, was very knowledge and helpful. We had a seafood appetizer special that had outstanding flavor. Both of our main entree specials were excellent. The pork was fork tender and had great flavor. The fish special was moist and very enjoyable. We finished our meal with a great shared dessert of a Cuban flan. Overall, we would recommend that anyone who would enjoy Cuban cuisine to be sure to go to Havana. We will return."
