I also confirmed with the hostess that they were aware of that. When we completed our meal, the waiter simply brought us the check. I had to get up and go to the bar and request the manager. The bartender called my waiter over and I told him that it was my daughters birthday. He mentioned that no one told him! They proceeded to bring her the birthday flan and fedora.

The service is excellent, as we always request Alexandra who is fantastic! The food is delicious. The only complaint I have is the temperature of the food. My husband’s salmon, broccoli and sweet potato fries are always lukewarm, never hot. My “pollo extraordinario” sandwich and fries were also lukewarm. We were told in the past there was an issue with the burners but now it was fixed. However, yesterday’s meals again were not hot at all. As it was crowded, we didn’t want to wait for our meals to be remade so we just ate it. I know we are not the only diners to comment about the temperature of the food.

We are sorry to hear that the music made conversation a challenge. We will be sure to keep the volume in mind as we absolutely want it to be pleasurable but also happy to try to accommodate your table further from the band next time. We hope to serve you again soon!

But the worst was having a reservation & having to wait over an hour to get seated at a table. They told us it was because customers were seating longer then 90 mins but after we got seated we realized it’s not the customers but their slow service that caused customers to sit for over 2 hours at a table. Manager never came to check up on us even tho I seen her check up on other tables. From start to finish. We were at the location for almost 4 hours.

I know it was Mother’s Day but the food quality was not the best. My appetizer came out on a dirty plate. My entree the garlic sauce was bubbled up the manager replaced the meal and that came out but the chicken was raw. Not a happy experience

Very good food overall with some smaller than usual portions.

I had the shrimp in garlic sauce with a side of black beans. The meal was delicious. I had a margarita and it was very good as well. The service was great and quick. Because we arrived later, we wet informed to order quickly as the kitchen was about to close at 9p. However, this did not impact the quality of our food or service.

(which I will get back to) who greeted us and checked our advanced reservation. We were sat immediately. Server came right away and took our drinks order which I gave him wrong appetizer order but cheerfully corrected for us. I ordered the pork lovers special. The pork chop portion seemed small which I questioned. Server apologized and agreed with my concern. Server removed small portion. I noticed the female mgr. making rounds who stopped by later to ask how are things which I mentioned "great". Server returned with larger chop portion which I thanked him for. A few moments later, the same female mgr returned and apologized for what I experienced earlier. I also noticed same mgr. checking things out in kitchen. I saw this mgr. interacting throughout the restaurant! Greeting customers at front reception desk, individual tables, wait staff, kitchen help. She was everywhere at different times. Talking about caring and getting involved. Kudos to this person!!! GREAT ATTENTION AND GREAT FOOD!!!

There were no other guests waiting to be sat either. We were literally the only people in the lobby. There were open (dirty) tables all over the restaurant and 3 hosts at the host stand just talking to each other. Then, our Servers ignored us after being sat, for about an additional 10 min, then said it was due to training a new staff member. -you should still great a table right away, and let them know you’re training. Not keep us sitting there while other tables around us are being served and not acknowledge us at all. Servers do not bus the tables as you continue throughout your meal. App plates and dinner plates were still on our table as well as empty glasses, since our server was difficult to waive down for a refill, when our dessert was brought out. The check was dropped promptly tho. We couldn’t recommend this location to anyone. We were Very disappointed, all around, from beginning to end and highly doubt we may ever return.

We were seated on the patio area; nice sky view. Cuban food is the specialty. Food was ok; menu selections leave much to be desired and is pricey for the portions of food served. Menu not kid friendly. Service however, was very good! Our server Jorge was very attentive and accommodating to our requests & was tipped handsomely for his efforts. Service was the best part of the experience at Havana Central. Might return oneday for date night, without the kiddies...

The food and drinks were very tasteful. The waitress Ryan was very on point. I asked for a booth and they told me they were short staff and I would have to wait and they didn't know how long. Within 5 minutes after we were seated at another table they seat a couple at a booth within 10 feet of where we were.
