BabaluNY Cuban Mediterranean Bistro
I thought the food was good, but not great. It seemed like what you might eat if a Cuban friend cooked for you (which isn't a bad thing). I guess I was expecting something slightly more elevated.
So authentic, fresh, and delicious! Best empanadas I’ve ever had! Small but they will be expanding soon. Don’t miss this “trip” to Cuba.
Great place! Fun and service terrific! Will be back!
The food is amazingly tasty. The soft tacos are so tender and the marinade is delicious. Try the specials, they’re worth it. Servers are very attentive. It’s time to move to bigger digs!
A very small place but the food is outstanding! Brussels sprout salad must try.
Alan has a goldmine on his hands. I hope he opens another restaurant! He is a fabulous chef and proprietor. The drinks were great, food was fabulous and i will be back!
Varied and exquisite flavors
Delicious, as always. Lovely service. Hope they get their approval to expand.
We will be back
Place is small with a limited bar and loud. The food was excellent and the service was attentive. Looking forward to their expansion.
Small venue. Make reservations if dining on the weekend. Dim lighting made it hard to read the menu. Food was tasty. We all said we would go back.
We had a lovely dinner and drinks at the bar area. Danielle was our server and a delight.. relaxing and fun time. I was able to reserve our seats in advance.
Outstanding on every level.
Huntington’s new gem!!
Excellent fresh food with a “CubaRican” flair.
The restaurant is small and a bit cramped but the staff is extremely nice and welcoming.
The space is no frills but the food is excellent. I look forward to going there again.
Love this plce!! Food is great, nice small place. Definitly make reservations.
Authentic family run gem looking forward to their dining room expansion - try it soon!
Love the Cuban-Latin food and vibe! Great empanadas, paella, and not-too-sweet sangria! Our friends loved the pernil and the Brussel sprout salad. Small place so not really great for big groups but definitely worth it for something different and delicious.
A nice find in Huntington. Nice atmosphere, very good service and yummy food. We were 4 people and we all had great appetizers and entrees. The desserts are not to be missed. If you like Cuban food, this is a place you will want to check out. You won’t be disappointed.
We have many choices in Huntington. Babalu is the finest restaurant in Huntington. My wife and I go often, and we have never been disappointed.
Owner came out to ask how everything was
OMG! First time at BabaluNY
With friends! We were greeted
by the owner. She made us feel so welcome.. The Cuban food was
delicious. The atmosphere and service were divine! We absolutely loved the place!
Will definitely return!!
My husband and I go here for a wonderful night out. The food is perfection and the staff make you feel like part of the family. Love the entertainment too. Can hardly wait to return. The pastelles bring me back to my childhood in Brooklyn.
Had a great time at Babalu - the food was delicious and the service was wonderful!
Excellent food and service. The paella was great. The appetizers terrific. Waiter very polite and attentive.
Everything tasted fresh and homemade. Best Cuban sandwich I ever had. Can’t wait to go back
First time at this restaurant. Its a quaint and cozy ambience. Staff was very friendly. It was like walking into your family’s home. The food was fresh, made in house and delicious. We began with the pegao - a special plate and the octopus. Both were delicious and perfectly made. Also had the pasteles, a typical puertorican dish. Reminded me of my grandmothers. Finished off with the pernil dinner and the housemade flourless chocolate cake and house made ice cream with the hot chocolate coffee. Yum. Will definitely be back.
