    Me and three friends stopped in for a pre dinner before going to see Meg the Stallion concert 5/21/24. Short wait time as we had a reservation and the staff was very pleasant and courteous to us waiting and when we were seated for dinner. Emillio was very attentive with everything and food was great. Will definitely continue to come back and refer other

    I ordered a Havana hurricane but it had no alcohol. I also ordered the appetizer sampler thinking the chicharrones de pollo were boneless as to previous time I went for happy hour but it was different.

    Unfortunately, not as good as I remembered it. A couple of folks didn't finish their sandwiches because the chicken and the pork was too dry Meduros are always yummy. It's a very nice looking space.

    They accommodated our large group of 11, which we appreciated tremendously. The food could have come out hotter but everything had good flavor and was enjoyed. Great drinks. Thank you, HC!

    Service was exceptional! Love the atmosphere with Cuban live music. Overall food was great but my only criticism is that my dish was a bit cold. I had the tower with 3 styles of pork. Great flavor but a bit cold. And definitely that dish serves two people!!! Every time we go to NYC enjoy going to Havana Central.

    We visit Havana Central every time we come to NYC. The food is solid, the service is always spotty. The visit this week we were disappointed with the service and got a cold plate=not warmish-dead cold. But the waiter disappeared so we sat there waiting to catch someone's attention to get it heated. Once corrected the food was solid, as usual. Never got my coffee refilled, nor our water. Waited a full 10 minutes to get someone to bring the bill, another five for him to come get the CC . This place is always jamming. They could turn tables much more quickly with better service. While I like "energetic" music, as the description allowed here, a more accurate descriptor of the music would be obnoxiously loud. Loud to the point you cannot hear each other yelling across the table. We'll be back but just for the quality of the food.

    Robert thanks as always for dining with us and for sharing your feedback. We're so lucky to have a valued guest like you but want to apologize for the cold plate and the service hiccups you experienced on your latest visit. We aim to take care of all of our guests and not have you wanting for anything. We apologize for dropping the ball and also appreciate the note on the music. We will be sharing this with our team for immediate attention. Hoping we have another chance to serve you in the future!

    Both the food and service was ok; most of the items we ordered weren't hot. We had a reservation for 6pm and arrived there 10 minutes before; we weren't allowed to be seated.

    Michelle thanks for dining with us and sharing your feedback. We sincerely apologize for the food not being served hot and any service concerns you experienced. We truly hope we have another chance to serve you and show you a true Havana Central experience!

    We had the taco trio. The shrimp taco was the best out of all of them. The chicken taco tasted like cardboard, no season and just hard and dry. The steak taco was super dry. The burgers we had though, super gooooood. The environment was very beautiful but too loud. To point I couldn’t hear the person in front of me and we had to scream across to talk.
    Havana Central Times SquareResponded on May 9, 2024
    Thanks for joining us for Cinco de Mayo! We truly appreciate your feedback on the taco specials - will absolutely review with our team. So glad you enjoyed the Frita Burger though! We value your comments and do hope for another chance to impress.
