Only one detail, I made a reservation for six four of us were there and the other two on there way, they made us wait in the waiting area and we would've like to be sit in our table and started with appetizer and drinks.

I liked the place, however my chicken was dry, I've been told that how they make Cuban chicken. I respect your culture but I prefer undry chicken. When I tried my moms food it was great! The pina colada was also amazing. It was close to Times Square which was also nice. Also thank you for letting us in earlier than our 8:30 reservation.

The original table seats could use an update, as we originally sat in the front and the seats were old, torn and I sunk in the cushion. We moved tables. Slow service(the waiter was friendly) and our food was not hot, but the manager replaced one of the dishes right away. Overall, it was the location why I directed friends/business to this establishment. Has charm but it needs an update on some of the furniture.

A perfect New York City before traveling home. Loved the coconut shrimp, and the lobster salad stuffed avocado. The best mojito north of Key West made it extra special. I’ve been to Havana Central on every trip to NYC the last two years.

Once again Havana Central was great! Wonderful Cuban cuisine and a social atmosphere. This time we left prior to the band starting their set, but I would recommend for first-timers to stay for the great Cuban music!

We went for pre-theatre and their system was down so they were flustered as they had to tell all their reservations either cash or the old fashioned card machines. They handled this crisis with style and grace and still got us out in time to make our theatre curtain. Food it good. Be aware of noise if that’s an issue.

The food was nasty , reheated and disgusting !!!! A simple milkshake was undrinkable , that should say a lot . I asked for olive oil and they brought me cooking oil and salad that’s what they had . I mean really it’s for a salad , it not to fry an egg . Very disappointed .

I had a wonderful experience while gathered among friends. The server was very attentive to our needs. However, when we all received our food it was cold which was disappointing, but it taste delicious so it was not a big deal for us. The overall setting was vibrant and energetic. We loved that servers chanted to birthday celebrations, which is ideal for family and friends to enjoy their time there. Most of all, I loved that we were not rushed out of our seating, since we were there for four hour having a blast of conversations. Excellent place to be at!

I've been several times. The food was very good. I love the empanadas, and the salmon salad was delicious. We had to be very assertive with our waiter. Though the service was overall good, he was very insistent on getting our orders in. The restaurant had plenty of open tables, and it was lunch time so we didn't see the need to rush. The food comes out very quickly, so if you're on a tight schedule, that's great. We always enjoy going and will be back again.
