Cuban
Cuba is located in a historic street in the Greenwich Village reminiscence of any street in Old Havana. It exudes the aroma and flavor of an authentic Cuban restaurant. The romantic milieu of Cuba effortlessly transports you from Manhattan to Cuba. The rhythmic palpitations of salsa, son Cubano, and the extraordinary sense of exotic dishes permeate the air. For years, Cuba Restaurant has been capturing the spirit of Old Havana with authentic
cuisine, strong signature mojitos, and the team behind Cuba, including Executive Chef Mario Garcia. As a result, Cuba restaurant is like a family, their loyalty and satisfaction directly translating to the guest experience, creating
an atmosphere of fun, friendliness and all-around Cuban hospitality that is unparalleled. Americans have fallen in love with Latin food, music, and culture. Cuba has them all under one roof, offering a singular and charming escape to its own Little Havana on Thompson Street.

Booked on a whim for dinner before a show at The Blue Note. The place is small but inviting and the staff was friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and the drinks were tasty. Definitely worth a try!

I was so excited to come back to Cuba for brunch but things have really been scaled down— less drinks on the boozy brunch menu than before, several entrees were unavailable, and even the espresso machine was broken. It was disappointing but maybe that’s Covid times for you.

THe chorizos were probably the best selection on the menu. Everything else was either very salty or just OK. For the price (there were 5 of us), I can cook better Cuban/Caribbean food at home. Service very slow

My partner and I got the skirt steak with chimichurri and garlic mashed potatoes, which we both agreed was amazing. However, the tostones definitely were not fresh. That was all the food we got--the drinks were good and the ambience was beautiful. The staff were very attentive and friendly. Would definitely go back! (Just not for the tostones lol)

Be on time - the place is small and quaint. The food was satisfying and Cuban authentic. Starting with the empanadas, and while all 3 were good the Manchego cheese-spinach. The Ceviche was plentiful with seafood and Tostones Rellenos were delicious. All of the mains were enJOYed - the lobster cream sauce in the Cazuela Marinera was WOW. The grilled sirloin steak came to the table still sizzling and was huge. I do not like sweet plantains, however the Pargo en Guayabera was cooked to perfection. The red snapper over the mashed sweet plantain with the Sofrito sauce made the sweet plantains less sweet and more flavorful. The Lechon was beautifully presented and tasty. All the drinks and deserts were keepers.

I've been here a few times with friends. Each time, the entire staff is courteous, and the service great. The street level of the restaurant is very dimly lit, but downstairs has much better lighting. The food is very flavorful, and meal portions are more than adequate. Their red sangria is also pretty tasty. Definitely enjoy dining here!

First visit to Cuba. Online it looked very attractive and menu looked authentic. In person it was all that and much more. The paella, salmon, bistec de palomilla and lechon we all had were excellent, the flan divine! Staff very accomodating, specially the bartender.

Have been here a couple times and each time, food has been fantastic. Service is attentive. We sat outside- each table has their own little covered area with wall between the next party, and heat- great for the coming winter! It’s pretty tight fitting our party of four- not much space other than sitting, but fine if you don’t mind not being able to live around much once you’re seated.
