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.

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.

Great dining experience on a Thursday early evening. Outdoor dining was comfortable, underneath a permanent wooden structure on extended sidewalk/street. Service and food were spectacular. All servers were attentive and pleasant. Accommodated nut allergies without difficulty. Paellas are delicious!

We were seated promptly at our reserved time at a table outside. It's on a side street that's not particularly noisy, so we were able to converse without shouting - Yay! Service was great and food was good. If you're seeking vegetarian choices, there aren't a lot on their menu; the vegetarian paella was a little bland. But cocktails, appetizers and fish dishes were delicious. We enjoyed our meal and would go again.

Always my go to for brunch. Loved the food, the staff and the restaurant in general.
Shame they dropped bottomless to 1 hour rather than 1.5 - I dined with one other person and it worked great but for a bigger group the time might not be enough to enjoy a full meal. Having said that, will still bring all my out of town guests as a first resort.

We chose Cuba to celebrate my partner’s birthday. From the moment we arrived our experience was awesome! Great seating in a semi-private room, food service and quality were IMPECCABLE and the staff even brought over a birthday flan to help up celebrate! Cuba is (and always will be) a go to for us!
