It has a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Service is very fast. Good portion. Every time a waiter passed by our table with someone's meal I picked and wanted to try them all. Every dish smelled scrumptious. The only thing we didn't like is that the tables are a little bit too close to each other. We would definitely go back.

We got there promptly at 6:15, Our reservation time… And had to wait 45 minutes… Many others got seated before us that have the same amount of people. 1/3 of our party had to leave Because they would not have made their show. Very frustrating that they don’t honor the reservations. We were Very kind during the situation.

This was my second visit. I love the ambiance. The food was great. The drinks were fantastic. We had a great server. My only complaint was when I was speaking to the hostess she walked away. Then another took over and she apologized for the other hostess and she was quite lovely.

I am not a big fan of going to a Times Square restaurant , however I have been here for happy hour before which are well worth the great mojitos and empanadas! Went with the family after a Broadway show and had a great time. Food was good , had the pork shank which was cooked very nicely and tasty, the daughters had the port chops which they loved and my wife vegetarian stuff peppers which she enjoyed. The one thing was the vegetarian stuff peppers was cold and needed to send it back to make it hot. Our waiter was professional and polite. It was loud mainly because of a large party which was right behind us. After they left the noise level went down were we able to hear the music being played. Thank goodness we made reservation on open table. We got our table within minutes, others with no reservations had an hour wait. Forget that. Would definitely go back.

We got there soon after opening so it was uncrowded and quiet. Service was good, food was tasty- my chicken soup was excellent and a chicken dish was quite tasty. I would definitely return.

We stumbled upon the Havana Central Times Square after several disappointing meals at other highly ranked (Zagat) restaurants. It was just around the corner from our hotel and was our favorite eating experience during our stay in NYC. Luckily we made reservations . We changed our minds and tried to go eat earlier - before the dinner crowd - but it was already packed with a long waiting list. It was loud and lively with the most amazingly friendly staff. Our waiter gave us suggestions when it was obvious we were having difficulty deciding what to order. Too many yummy sounding choices on the menu. All in all it was great food and great service. we will go back and have recommended it to friends visiting New York and the Theatre District.

I chose this restaurant because I love Cuban and Caribbean Latin food. It was also very convenient to parking and theters. The menu was extensive and had so many classic Cuban dishes like Moro, pernil, ropas viejas, tostónes, maduros etc. We had an appetizer of shrimp ceviche which was delicious and made just right and an appetizer of maduros (sweet plantains) which was the only disappointing thing. They were cold which leads me to believe that the weren’t fresh because you just cannot make fried sweet plátanos and have the en cold. I think they were reheated leftovers. The strawberry mojito was to die for!!! Overall great food and great experience.
