This is my go-to spot every time I'm in Manhattan.
The bistec churrasco is my favorite, especially with the chimichurri sauce!
Service has always been pleasant.

Group of 6 coworkers went for holiday lunch - service was great, took a while for the food to come though. You can see many people who works in the surrounding offices coming here for lunch, lively during lunch but not too loud

Festive and lively, but still cozy, atmosphere and great service in convenient location near Grand Central, Bryant Park and Times Square. Servers allowed us to eat at our own pace and linger, even on a Friday night. Mussels and shrimp taco appetizers were absolutely delicious!

The fish tacos were very good , but the chicken entry was dry and tasteless . The chicken was dry and cold , and had no seasoning or sauce with it . We were so disappointed in the food quality. The service was good, the staff friendly , the ambiance nice , but the food was just not what we expected . We left thinking a food truck would have given us a better meal.

Excellent food and service. The only disappointment was seeing the price of simple drinks like Sangria. More than $60 for a pitcher of Sangria is simply too high.

We love the food, but felt rush when the bus boys kept coming by to take dishes away. I was not finish with chips and dip. We were told our mail course is coming out. so we couldn't keep the chips and dip??? Your prices also are very high what what you offer.

Excellent food. Everything was fantastic. A little pushy when it came to vacating the table in their 1:30 timeframe which they informed us of when we sat. Plan on spending $100 per person for a good meal and a couple of drinks

Food was well presented and restaurant had good atmosphere. staff were engaged and helpful. Overall overpriced however with small coke half filled with ice being 4 dollars and they charged for refills without pointing it out. Ropa Vieja was ok but undercooked as had not tenderized.

Dear friends from Washington DC were visiting for a birthday celebration. They had never tried Cuban food and were delighted. The hostess at Havana was lovely and arranged to have the staff sing happy birthday while they delivered a sumptuous treat of flan with a candle. The portions of the pernil were generous and well prepared. Unfortunately the Mojito did not live up to my expectations. You must go upstairs to see the beautiful setting and open space

I actually made a reservation here by mistake & so glad I did. I thought I booked Havana Central in Times Sq...once I realized the mistake it was too late to change because we needed a 6pm reservation to go to a broadway show so we decided to try it & so glad we did. Soooooo much better than the other havana. Food was delicious. This is our new theater go to!!!

What a treasure. Excellent Cuban food, generous portions, personable staff, great background music. It’s like eating in my mother’s house, which is high praise. Have the pork shank or the Ropa Vieja, but truthfully you can’t miss with any of the dishes. My go-to in Manhattan for Comida Criolla. So very glad it survived the pandemic.

I ordered the pork shank and found it to be dry, fatty and with no flavor. For the amount they are charging for this dish, I think they could have included a vegetable with the small amount of risotto. The churros were hard could have used more chocolate sauce and it would have been better served warm for dipping. The wait staff were attentive and helpful.
