Our waiter stopped checking on us once outdoors was served. He focused more on new clientele AND the TV more than my table. What was supposed to be a quick bite before the movie theater made us late to the show. Not recommending

Food was bland. Didn't enjoy the pineapple chicken breast. The chicken breast was not seasoned. Very disappointed. The live music was the best part of the meal.

We were there for a Paint Night event which was held in a private room. We had dinner at 5:00 in the restaurant, then moved into a back room for Paint Night at 7PM. Food was good, service was wonderful. Our server knew the menu and was able to describe and recommend. The Paint Night room was boiling hot, couldn't enjoy because of the temp in the room. Asked to put A/C on twice and it never cooled off - only got hotter because there were probably 40 people crammed into this small room.

My visit to Havana Central was outstanding. The food was amazing and their hospitality was excellent. I had called to inform them that I was running late, and I wanted to know if they could hold my table, and without any hesitation they said sure. I’m super excited to go back. Havana Central is definitely added to my top 10 restaurant’s. Oh yes and did I mention the food was Amazing!!!!

The food was amazing and the music as well. The service although very friendly, however wasn’t the best. Long waits and missing silverware, among a few other things. It was a busy Friday night so I’ll blame it on that and definitely give it a try again. Mango Pineapple pork chops will be waiting for me!

Havana Central's food was exceptional as was the waiter, Santos. He made recommendations, had a sense of humor and the food came out quickly and was delicious. I would have given it 5 stars but we had a 4pm reservation and despite the text and email confirmations, we had to wait 20 minutes to get a table. Not a big deal but defeats the purpose of making a reservation. Overall the food was wonderful so I definitely recommend it.

I was looking forward to going to Havana Central for my birthday celebration. I made a reservation and still had to wait close to 45 minutes. Then we ordered drinks and it took forever to come. Thn we ordered our food and that took forever to come as well. My mother ordered an entree and asked the waitress if it came with white rice and waitress said yes. When my mother got her her meal it was yellow rice and she would not be able to exchange it for white rice without getting charged for it. All in all great atmosphere but the service is lagging a bit.

I’m disappointed in my visit to Havana last night.
We arrived just a few minutes early and everyone was pleasant and inviting.
Our waitress was good.
Unfortunately the food...not so much. I’ve been to Havana many times but it has been a little over a year since last visit.
The food, which consisted of 3 appetizers and 1 meal, was bland. The garlic shrimp-Shrimp al Ajillo, had no taste of garlic. The calamari was a little too fried and the dipping sauce was bland. The empanadas were okay. Something simple like maraquitas- plantain chips - weren’t seasoned at all.
We ordered maduros which were very good. Oh we ordered a dessert, a flan which was a bit on the thicker side and tasted a bit frozen.
Needless to say I don’t think I’ll be returning to this location which is sad because of where it is.
Hope that if I go in another year, it will be better.

Food was cold and late. Service was very slow. We were there for 2.5 hours and it was waste of our time and money. Waitress didn’t clear the table and we had to eat In clutter. She got her tip anyway because our party consisted of 5 people but didn’t deserve anything. There also were people crowding around our table area, waiting for a table themselves. Ambience was impersonal and felt more like low budget Spanish restaurant.

My boyfriend ordered a cheeseburger and they give him the Havana Frita burger which was disgusting. As soon as you bite into it the meat was all red inside and dripping which made him lose his complete appetite. I would not recommend this restaurant.

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.
