The guy who was serving us seemed like he didn’t want to, had a bit of a stank attitude.

Staff was great, but the food was lackluster. As a Puerto Rican, I know Latin Caribbean cuisine well. The dishes looked the part, but didn’t taste it. I actually had to ask for salt. Not sure if they did that to satisfy palates that can’t tolerate seasoning, but it’s lacking for anyone who knows better.

Food is always delicious and it didn’t disappoint once again, but we had a trainee for server and he was just ok as a server, understandably.
Overall though it’s one of my favorite places to go!

This use to be my spot whenever I visit the NY area. Over the last few visits the food taste has not been the same great quality. Definitely not the best value for money spent. I gave this restaurant one more try and I believe that's it.

I have said this before, do not understand why they give you so little wine in a glass. They should drill it at least half of the glass. The fact I use to go there regularly and left my comment about the and nothing has been done I went with my sister and she said the same thing. Also good customer service is to give you a glass of wine on the house. I think that will make people come back.

The ambience and service was excellent! The food however was not good enough to want to return. I ordered the eggplant which I was so looking forward to, but it was so greasy that it was inedible. The white rice, beans and Maduros were served barely warm and the rice was not fresh. On the other side, their tres leche dessert was fabulous.

We had a group of 6 and had a great time. The restaurant wasn't loud and we were able to all hear each other. It's a great midtown find!

I feel as a regular that has been there several times, when being served more than 2 glasses of wine - most places that know me give me one on the house from them. Havana NY has never done this and I think this is poor customer service. I think you would have more people coming back if after the 2nd glass of wine - the 3rd is on you.

Havana definitely upgraded the menu. A great assortment with something for everyone. The food is fresh and plentiful. Not too spicy. The service is energetic and friendly.
The only thing I would change is the happy hour structure. To say that Chardonnay is not included, but Sauv Blanc is included is ridiculous. It makes the happy hour sleazy and bordering on unethical. I had two Chardonnays and they charged me full price - won't make that mistake again.

Service was good, but food was mediocre at best and overpriced. For the amount they charge, should have been much better. I wouldn’t have minded paying $80 a head for good food and service.

Food and service were decent but you can find better food for the value at other Cuban places. Drinks were small and watered down for $16 a piece. $200 for dinner for 2 left feeling very unsatisfied.

I was looking for a place on a Friday night that wasn’t loud and crazy, and that can be hard to do in midtown. Havana is a small-ish intimate space, with good food and excellent service. I look forward to coming back.

I really liked this restaurant and so did the other 7 people in my party. We sat upstairs which was quieter and more private (perfect for us). I really enjoyed the fish of the day, it was cooked perfectly. Appetizers and drinks were great too, we will be back !!

Absolutely delicious spicy mango margaritas ! Ropa viejo , skirt steak - and even the rice and beans ... all outstanding . Everyone else’s dishes around us all fantastic . Was in my work neighborhood and I guess I took for granted and never tried it — wow was I surprised and for sure will return !
