Awesome customer service!!
I never write reviews, but feel compelled to so. The music was so loud we could not even hear the waitress. That aside the waitress got my order wrong and I had to wait to get my dish corrected which came after my girlfriend had already finished eating. Aside from the food being barely passable and extremely expesive the whole experience was terrible. I hate giving a negative review, but it’s definitely warranted.
Birthday celebration for a family member
I made 4pm reservations and I did arrive early. We were seated at 3:30 and after that pretty much forgotten about. Our appetizer took 45 minutes to come out and finally our food took 45 minutes after the appetizer. A couple sat next to us 15 minutes after we ordered and ordered and all of their food came out before our. We also ordered dessert which took another 25 minutes to come out. We left the restaurant finally at 6:30pm. 3 HOURS!!! That's really unacceptable especially since it was not busy when we arrived. You pay a lot of money to eat in s restaurant and the service is terrible. The manager did NOTHING. Her blamed it on a food item not "looking good" so he held up our food in the kitchen. I'm calling BS since it still took 25 minutes for them to plate and serve ready made desserts.
Great food and live music! Will definitely be back!
The waitress and staff were very professional. She made excellent drink suggestions. The tostones we ordered were very good. However, both meals that we ordered were not good at all. The food was over salted, so much so my husband could not eat his dinner. Both meals came with yellow rice and black beans. The rice was bland and the beans were tasteless. We would not return.
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, by the way if you don’t have a reservation be prepared to sit in the back of the restaurant. That’s where we were placed until I mentioned I had a reservation, very sad but true.
Great time great food. Had a wonderful time with my family
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
Kim was great!!!
Great food great music great people
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!!
Friends took us out for a special celebration... picked the perfect spot! Everything was great ...like the delicious cocktails and food, great service and awesome live music! Festive and fun night! Looking forward to going back soon!
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!
Been to Havana Central many times. Food, drinks and service are never a disappointment.
Date night with husband
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.
Delicious as always. Great live band. Great drinks.
Started out bad but the manager took car e of it. The entrees and drinks were good. With so many choices in that area not sure I would go back.
Was shopping with my wife and the place seemed like a great option. Made a reservation with the app and got there about 30 min early. We checked in and told them we are early and if they can get us in before that would be great. We were told there were others with earlier reservations but shouldn’t be a problem. It was busy, great live music. It was 9:10 and our reservation was for 9:45 pm. No buzzers or any way of letting us know other than calling our name out so I waited nearby. People came in after us and were seated before us. I checked in a few times and was told it would just be a few minutes. Finally a little after 10 when I saw two couples who came in after 9:45 be seated before us, I went up again. We were brought to a table, a small one that had a sign watch your step wet floor next too it. The table was wet and sticky and the floor was wet too. One hour and that’s what I was given. Wouldn’t take it. At the same time, two other tables of two were seated. I am a very easy going person and a generous reviewer and tipper but this wasn’t acceptable. Finally we were seated at an appropriate table. Food was very good, waiter was as well. Great live music. Front needs better training and a better system I don’t blame them. Will try again but only one more try.
Food was DEELISSH and our server (Yesid) was attentive and gave a great suggestion to the Expresso Cuban Martini.
Great experience for a first date. The ambiance, food, intimacy, music & people are lively and delicious. Great experience for casual/family occasions. The ambiance, food, music & people are lively & delicious. Either way you can't miss.
Our first time there! Musics was amazing! Food was delicious! Can’t wait to go back!
Our reservation was for 7:30. We had to wait 20 minutes for our table. Then we were shown a table right by the bar with lots of people standing around. We asked for another table in the restaurant and had to wait another 20 minutes. It was right by the music (the band was great). Way too loud to have a conversation. We had to wait for the band to go on a break to talk. Food was good, drinks not so good. My vodka and club soda was served in an old fashion glass. That’s too small for a club soda drink!!! This is a nice place to go if you don’t want to talk too much and listen to good Latin music.
Food was good. Prices are high for food quality and amount.
Everything was ok. Except the wait time between apps and entrees was long and we had to keep asking for water and napkins.
Went here with friends and had an amazing time. The food was great, the coconut mojito, something I've never had was spectacular.
