The Food was Divine and so flavorful, the drinks were amazing at $6 a mojito the night I went.
We went to celebrate my birthday. We had an excellent experience. Friendly staff, excellent food and great ambiance.
Authentic food, simple and delicious. You cat take out or eat at the simple setting
I celebrated my birthday with a friend and had a fabulous meal and service. Ive been here several times and will continue going back.
The overall experience was great! Music was a bit loud but I have been here Pre COVID for the live band which is amazing.
The food was amazing and music was great. Service was very nice
My Birthday... we wanted somewhere to dance.
One of my favorite place to eat. I love the music, ambiance, the staff and the food is awesome
Food and service were excellent.
Great night. Awesome Mojitos
It was amazing as always the owner is so sweet they paid attention to my reservation for my grandma’s 84th birthday and made her feel so important. The food was just perfect my favorite ceviche and the paella and steak was amazing. My dessert the tres leche is the best ever! You must go!!
Girls trip to the city
Fun, live music and excellent Cuban food and drink
Great Cuban food, but the music makes it.
Great food and great environment! The band, the crowd, the staff - all amazing. Would highly recommend and definitely will revisit.
We’ve been coming her for over ten years. This time, the food was not as good as usual, but the dessert and cocktails were great
The service was fast and attentive ... the food was very flavorful and the portions were large!! I will certainly be making a trip back here to be able to see the live music they offer ... I think I was there a little too early for the show!
I have been in Guantanamera many times and every time I am there, I always had a good time. I love the food and the live music. I recommend it.
Overpriced...better food and atmosphere, much lower prices at Havana in Times Square for Cuban food
Evryting was good excellent .
Great food! Delicious! Good service. Waiter was a little pushy and rushed but when I explained we were not rushing he understood. Place is loud but in a good way. Happy place. Not over priced. Would recommend for any occasion.
This restaurant is usually good and pretty consistent. My only real complaint is that they NEED to update their online menu to match their actual menu. The mixed seafood dish DOES NOT HAVE LOBSTER TAIL as advertised. So you are paying for clams and oysters and a few shrimp. Other than that... It's pretty good. Staff is usually great as well. Most are eager to please, which is nice. You may get a newbie, who doesn't offer much help, but just seek a vet and you'll be fine.
One of my favorite spots to dine when taking a business trip to NYC. Food is always really good and the live band is a lot of fun. Might also be the beet happy hour specials in Manhattan.
Good vibe Good mojitos
From the host to servers and waiters, everyone displayed outstanding service. Mojitos and empanadas are a must!
A group of dine at Gauntanmera for the first time and had a great time. I am planning to revisit again.
We had a wonderful night celebrating my brother in laws 55th birthday!
The hostess, staff & establishment owner were friendly & hospital. Entrees were flavorful. There was live music & dancing. Definitely worthwhile to visit.
Lots of fun and great place to hang, dine and dance on a Saturday night!
Guantanamera is always a wonderful time. The ambiance, the food, the drinks, and the live music hit the nail on the head. I would recommend their mojitos and their Bistec Palomillo (steak with grilled onions)
Great Cuban food, terrific live music, warm environment!!! Must go.
Great food, service and price. I already did recommend it to a friend. Would definitely return.
I'm a vegetarian so it wasn't the best place for me, but my husband and friends who aren't vegetarians loved it. The service was great, we loved the murals on the wall, and it was fun to get a taste of Cuba.
Best Cuban in NYC. The staff are SO friendly. I love this place and go at least once a week.
The food was very good however the maduros were not ripe enough when cooked and not very sweet. However the staff was very accommodating when we mentioned it and gladly took it off the bill. Mojitos were amazing and the music was very nice.
This was a great place to celebrate our last night in town. The food and service were very good. The noise level made it a bit difficult to converse with one another, but it was the holidays and everyone was celebrating and happy. The Mojitos were superb and are highly recommended. Guantanemera is well worth an evening.
