Waitress was excellent. Entree (mariscos) was tasty but the queso appetizer was okay. Worst part was check. There were 4 people behind the desk - only 1 checked people in, 1 showed guests to their tables, and 2 actually just stood there and did not interact with the customers at all.

It was our anniversary. The food was great and the drinks too. The food came out too fast, we didn’t finish with our spritzers and our main course came. It was very delicious.
The band was playing so it was loud, and we sat next to where they kept pulling plates, it was disturbing and loud. But we had a great time and the food was amazing.

Happy Anniversary! We are so glad you enjoyed your food & drinks. We do apologize for the issue with the timing and plates though. We know we can earn that 5th star should you dine with us again. Thank you!

This is my 14 year grandson’s favorite restaurant. We come here often. I tried a different dish today. The pernil asada. It was great. The marinated onions gave it a nice kick. He had the mango salmon and enjoyed it. Our waitress Vanessa was awesome. She gave us suggestions for our next visit. Looking forward to dining real soon!

I ordered a hamburger with yellow rice and beans, and get a hamburger with a salad on the side. My wife ordered the turkey sandwich without avocado and sauce on the side received a sandwich with no turkey on it, we called over a mgr. who said he would fix it. I the mean time they brought me my rice with black beans not red so sent back a second time. Now my wife gets her turkey sandwich which has sauce slathered all over it. Called over a mgr and we tell him and he wants us to wait for another to be made. In the meantime my food is ice cold since i waited for my wife's food to come out. We just got up and left.
I called Havana Central both corporate and the general mgr of the Roosevelt field location and left my name and number and never got a call back from either.
I will not be going back nor would i ever recommend. If they can't make a simple turkey sandwhich i can only imagine what they would do with the rest of their menu.

El lugar y el servicio son agradables, la comida que quería no estaba disponible, por tal razón ordené una mariscada, pero estaba salada y tuve que cambiar el plato. En la espera del nuevo plato, mi acompañante tuvo que cenar sólo para que su comida no se enfriara y terminé luego cenando cuando ya se me había pasado el apetito.

Busy night but couldn’t seem to handle it.ordered 2 drinks 2 apps 2 meals. First 1 app then the drinks then the meal then 2 nd app appeared. Waiter was polite but seemed overwhelmed. Then ran out of the dessert which is a staple on the menu. This was on a Saturday night 2/15. Manager kept telling me bar was backed up,kitchen was backed up. NOT MY PROBLEM. Been here many times food is good but this is probably last time.

I love the ambiance, the appetizers were pretty good but the Ropa Veja was a bit salty. The shrimp empanadas were DELICIOUS. However, the rest of the food was kind of bland and a bit of a disappointment for my birthday celebration.
