Havana Central transports you to pre-Revolution Cuba with swanky decor, lively jazz, relaxing bar and beloved recipes. Traditional Cuban cooking is a labor of love: many dishes are slow-cooked over low heat and require constant attention to create that perfect flavor. Executive Chef Stanley Licairac has mastered the patience and style necessary to recreate old-world Cuban classics.

Food, service and value excellent. Seating undesirable. Seated at small table in the back room. Felt like I just walked off the street without a reservation. Hopefully on a regular day will be seated more comfortable.

This is a beautiful restaurant and the food is delicious! I never leave disappointed. I haven't been lucky enough to catch the live band.

I miss them selling the empanadas outside on Tuesdays or Thursdays (I can't remember). They have the best empanadas!

Great staff as well :)

We’ve been to Havana Central before and have always had an great experience. This time we went for my birthday and it was so good. Our server Cathy made the usual great experience amazing! That girl should be training every server! She was polite, personalsble, and accommodating. If I could request a server for future visits I would I’d request her every time.

I ate here before with small
Groups and it was great, I made sure I reserved a table For a party of 8. The table wasn’t ready when we got There, then is was so squeezed between two other tables that me and my daughter were uncomfortable ( she’s only six and I’m a
Petite person) we barley fit since the chair couldn’t
Be pulled out, for a large party and gratuity automatic they had a server who was covering to many tables. I ordered 2 pitchers of sangria ( same exact as I have before) when it came out it was different I asked her why it wasn’t w red wine she said well that’s it and continued to mix the second ignoring any question I asked, she could’ve asked what was it I wanted and changed it nothing was mixed yet. When I made the reservation I started it was a birthday and wanted to celebrate. A slice of any desert Wasn’t brought out. I could go on no utensils on the table the rice had the bottom crunchy part in it. Not what one expects when they spend over 300. This will definitely be my last time.

I’m originally from Miami, so I know and love Cuban food. However at this restaurant I don’t believe they know what it is, well at least I don’t think the chef knows! The server was nice, but had no clue about the food. The Chimichurri sauce was like a bland pesto paste. Disgusting. The online menu on google or open table for this location is not up to date. Most the pictures of the food on trip advisor were made by the restaurant, but when the food comes out it looks nothing like the pictures. Sorry I didn’t take any pictures. It’s almost as if the real chef opened the restaurant then quit. If you find yourself here and have to get something then try the pernil asado. That was edible. As far as dessert the flan was great, but then again how does the saying go? There’s 2 things hard to mess up when it comes to cooking...that’s breakfast and dessert. LOL
This place would be a good place to go for a cocktail and live music. Not for food.

Back to awesome. Not sure if the management change has anything to do with the overall at atmosphere. Great service. Great food. The marinated pork shank is worth every penny. The app with the breaded corn is phenomenal and who doesn't love a good Mojito. The children had a great time and our server was very attentive and on time.

Food was delicious but we had to use our cell phones to light the menu enough to read. Service started out good but waiter seemed to ignore us after we got our dinner. We were going to have dessert and coffee but he took to long to come back to us and by then we were over it.

Havana Central is perfect for lunch as a couple or with the family. The food is consistently excellent. I recommend the Classic Cuban Sandwich. The service is always the best. Our server, Ross, was right where he should have been. He was competent and personable.

The food was great, however the service was terrible. I really wanted to have a great experience here but they need to be attentive to their customers. I dined here on a slow night, so I wasn’t sure what the problem was.

The restaurant itself is super nice. They had a live band which was also nice and not too loud that is ruined the mood to eat and relax. The servers were great. The food was alright. Our appetizers were pretty good but my food was kind of bland.

What can I say? Great food, Great atmosphere Great people. Just don't get the waiter named Joey. Absolutely the worst. I hate to say names but when you ruin a service and there are children involved you should be fired. I asked the manager to change the waiter due to a service problem and they did. He was upset because of the change and I watched him say to the new server I'll bring the desserts. Brownies came out like hockey pucks and he brought them with a smirk on his face. So upset but my children were sitting there so I bit my tongue and paid and left.

The server was not very friendly - I understand it was a late reservation but that’s no excuse for poor service . We sat outside and one of the other patrons was smoking and trying to hide it and no one told her to put it out. And they clearly saw and smelled it . It was just a bad experience and - the drinks tasted like juice .

Our server Joshua was awesome. He took the time to constantly make sure we were comfortable. Joshua knew it was my niece's 30th birthday and he went out of his way to secretly ask me what was her favorite appetizer and he brought it out with a candle. My niece had a extremely memorable night. The food and drinks were out of this world. We definitely recommend it to everyone. You definitely can hear yourself talking even with the nice live music.
