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.

Havana Central Roosevelt Field Mall Ratings and Reviews
This is not my first time at Havanas. If it was, I would not return hands down. Hardly saw the waiter. Took forever for us to get our entrees and even ask what we wanted to drink in the beginning. Then when we got the entrees: it was cold, the chicken was not seasoned, the rice and beans were dry and hard. Its usually not this bad.
This was my first time at Havana Central and I was pleased from the moment i entered until the moment I left. I was quickly seated after giving my reservation, I also got a booth as requested which i was happy about. The food was Amazing! I'm still thinking about the garlic Chicken. Drinks were good. I had a classico Mojito which I thought could have been a tad but stronger but that's just me :). Loved the live salsa music. My boyfriend was very pleased to have his birthday dinner there. We will definitely be back.
Great service, great food, enjoyable live music. I have been here more than 5 times and I love the food every single time. I have never tired something new that I didn't enjoy. The menu changes on occasion and it's STILL good choices to choose from. This is one of my favorite Cuban Restaurants ❤
Girls night out before a movie and Havana Central did not dissapoint! The entire staff was so cordial and attentive. The waiter recommended my meal and I loved it. Live band set a wonderful ambiance. Large menu selection with authentic ingredients! The white sangria with fresh fruits was amazing. I will surely go again. Thank you.
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 .
