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.

Overall the restaurant was nice, food was okay, but the waitress totally ignored our table. She paid more attention to her other table, we had to keep asking the manager or another waitress for items. But I enjoyed everything else. I will go back.

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.
