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.

Birthday celebration for a family member

The food was good. Service is a little slow. Possibly because it’s Saturday. Drinks could be a little stronger and less ice filling up the glass

I had ordered the Oxtails special which I thought would guarantee a solid choice but it was to salty to even try. I forced a few bites and had enough

Great music very beautiful vibrant place. My appetizer and entrée were great but my dessert was pretty bad I got three tiny shriveled looking “churros”. Service was good could be a little more friendly. Drinks were good. Overall a good experience and I will be going back and recommending.

I’ve been coming to NYC every year for the past 7 years and my favorite spot is always Havana. I’ve recommend Havana to every one of my friends when they travel to NYC. They always comeback to me with smiles!!

We went with a bunch of friends and a birthday celebration. They have live music and a small dance floor for guests that want to dance. The food was good and portions were decent size. We will definitely be returning to try other menu items!

It is an OK restaurant if you want to have Cuban food you can't get elsewhere easily. But it is just OK. Portions are good, the flavor is fine, but you feel as if it you are being rushed by a not too attentive waitress. They need more waitress service.
The drinks are mixed with very little liquor. My pina colada tasted mostly like pineapple when I asked for more liquor that I would pay for, it could not be done. My daughter also asked for a mixed drink and she could not taste the rum.
It is very 'touristy'. Decor is fun and music makes me happy since I am of Carribbean descent but I will go only when in the mall (don't live in area)and won't go out of my way to travel there just to eat. I won't order cocktails.

Food is good but the portions are small. I enjoyed the live music.
