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.

What a hidden gem! It was intimate and romantic. Great for friends or a date. They have a downstairs area with a bar. The drinks are great. The waitress was so friendly and the service was quick! The food was amazing and so fresh. Great portions and so flavorful. I absolutely will come back.

Cuba is a long time favorite that never disappoints! It was great seeing so many happy faces dining out after the sad, long year of the COVID-19 pandemic. It's a memory I'll cherish of dining out indoors for the first time in a year!

Amazing! Venue food service all excellent. This was my first time here and I loved the unique outdoor seating it was ideal for my date and I. It felt cozy and romantic. This would be great for friends too. The food was delicious! I recommend the calamari, the ropa vieja and the maduros. The passion fruit sangria was sweet and refreshing. I can’t say enough good things! Amazing

I love Cuba but the brunch food was not what I expected from them. We did not enjoy our entrees at all. We had the steak and eggs which was low bar from the rest of the menu. I’m sure with everything going on this will improve but I wasn’t happy with my meal and left dissatisfied.

Not impressed by this place - I could make the same food at home and tastier. Cheap meat - didn't sit well with my husband. Also, my wine glass had a crack from the top rim down - I had only taken one sip when I noticed. They of course gave me a new glass, but still. Not a place I'll be returning to - I can have better food for the same price somewhere else.

I may perhaps be biased, because I've made so many wonderful memories in this restaurant, but the fact that I've made so many wonderful memories in this restaurant should also count as a ringing endorsement.

The food is consistently top-notch; my only "complaint" would be that the menu has shrunk a bit, but I'm guessing that's probably due to Covid restrictions on how many people can be in the place at once, so the chef needs to keep the menu lean. That doesn't mean it's light on variety, or flavor: again, the food here is just outstanding. My wife had a perfectly-cooked salmon, I had fall-off-the-bone succulent oxtail. Always, always excellent.

The staff is attentive and wonderful. They don't push you out to turn over the table. The drinks are perfect. Dessert was as great as ever.

CUBA is hands down our favorite restaurant in the city, and we couldn't be more pleased to get back there after almost 18 months away. Thank goodness they're still around, and I hope they'll be around for many, many years to come.

We went for bottomless brunch and it was pretty standard. The drinks were good and you could choose from mimosas or sangria, but they don't let you switch throughout the time period. The outdoor seating was super cute though and the staff was really great. They were very attentive and came by to refill our glasses pretty often. The food was pretty average though. Very basic brunch with few actual brunch entree options. If you're just there to get the most bang for your buck with bottomless brunch, this is a good option (plus in a convenient area to go places afterwards). If you're looking for 5 star food, I wouldn't recommend this.

We took our friend out for his birthday and were able to score an outdoor table, which are in these cute little individual outdoor rooms with an open door that’s heated... best for someone you’re pretty sure hasn’t been exposed. The girly who took care of us was an Angel on earth... sweet as cherry pie and super attentive. And the food was great. I had the pork, which was crazy great and my partner had the shredded beef, which was also SUPER tasty. We had a nice bottle of wine and were too full for dessert. If you don’t like this place, something is definitely wrong with you. It’s a great go-to and because it was outside, it was quiet! Such a coveted experience in NY dining! Go and enjoy yourself.
