About Havana Central Roosevelt Field Mall

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.

My wife and I went there on a Sunday evening. Got seated and our waitress, Kimberly, was there quickly to take our drink/appetizer order. She was great all night. The El Gran Borracho... wow!!! Excellent drink and definitely enough to share. We chose the plantain basket as an appetizer. There were four parts to the appetizer - chicken, shrimp, ground beef and steak. Each was good, with the steak being the best, but the overall appetizer was a bit on the small size for the price. Not disappointed in choice though, just would have liked a little more - maybe two of each. Our meals were great. I got the pernil and my wife got the shrimp mofongo. Good size and filling too. We both were satisfied.

The only downside to the evening was the live music. I get the appeal of doing it, but not when it overpowers the table conversation. We were both glad when the final set ended at 7:30 PM and we were able to speak normally to one another.

Overall great experience and food. I would definitely return.

I honestly loved the food and the environment but everything would've been perfect if Castro our server was more professional and attentive to his job . He honestly greeted us in a rude way if it wasn't for his name tag i would've never known what his name was . He brought us appetizer plates and sliver ware until we finished our appetizer . We reserved at 10:45 Bc he are servers ourselves it was a party a 4 even the host gave us a hard time . We went there for the drinks and Castro didn't make sure at least 5-10 min before the bar and kitchen closed if we wanted something else he was definitely cut at this point Bc he was just wanting to leave he came to the table and then was like "bar and kitchen closed " and walked away like wow . Then he didn't bring our sweet potato fries it was the first item and he charged us for something that we never order he didn't know how to explain anything in the menu he was an awful server . The food and environment was amazing but the server and host made it awful at least the host helped us but Castro was just rushing us out he didn't care whatsoever after we paid and everything we just waned to sit there and he literally came over and said okay folks are we done goodnight so we just got up and left .

The food was Delicious! However the main entrees were served almost Immediately (5-mins) after the appetizers. This gave more of an "assembly line" vibe rather than a dining experience.

I have eaten at the Havana Central in Manhattan and i love the restaurant. The Roosevelt Field Havana is a great place to eat while in the area. I was most disappointed with my meal because the black beans tasted like the chef dumped a whole container of sale into it.

I have been to the Havana Central in Time Square but this was my first visit to the Roosevelt Field Mall location. It was a bit loud but had a nice vibe. The food was okay but not wow like I felt it was the TS location.

I ordered a salad as an appetizer and it was taking forever to get there. Our entrée arrived and it still did not come so I cancelled it.

The desserts were great. We had flan and pina colada cake.

We arrived earlier than our reservation and was going to wait at the bar but we were sat right away. We sat for about 15 minutes before we got a server. We ordered salad, drinks and appetizers. The salad was the last thing to come out almost 30 mins after we ordered. The drinks tasted like virgin and was very disappointing. The bill came and the drinks were all a different price than the menu this is the third time this has happened. Did enjoy eating here but I think Ill try a different place from now on. Thank you.

We really enjoyed our lunch at the restaurant. The guest appreciation day was an excellent idea. My only complaint is there was absolutely no seafood on the special menu. My only option was a vegetable paella which was more like a side dish. The delicious shrimp empanadas were not even offered on the menu. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his selections and the mojitos were wonderful.

This restaurant goes out of its way to make sure you have a great experience. The Cuban sandwiches and the Valencia paella are particularly outstanding. The service is caring without being too in your face. The Manager cares that all goes well and is constantly checking to make sure all is as it should be. Great value.

I have gone to Havana Central in the City many times before. Unfortunately, the experience at this location was not good.

We ordered a 6 dishes. The chicken and shrimp was brought to the table- both were luke warm as well as the steak. All 3 had to be sent back. Of the 2 kids meals ordered, only one came to the table with the other orders. My 3 year old daughter had to wait another 5-10 minutes for her plate.

We spoke to the manager who was very apologetic and replaced our order with their signature dishes- these came out quickly. However, the arroz con pollo was very salty.

at the end the manager came over and advised they would be taking 15% of the bill and gave the kids a free dessert. I thought they would have offered a bigger discount or free drinks etc but that was not the case.

On the plus side- our waiter was great. Attentive and very friendly.

However, I doubt I would visit this location again.
