I like the place, few times there great experience. I was with friends in a brunch, celebrating my birthday and whit my husband and kids. Def going back!
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.
