Had dinner on Sunday night, it was crowded and noisy! But it’s to be expected! They had live music and there was a birthday next to us. Food was amazing like always!

Havana Central was fun and energetic and the food was authentic! We had the Ropa Veija which was awesome! They also accommodated a child who just wanted grilled cheese. Very friendly staff. With our reservation, we got right in.

My family and I had a fun night at this restaurant. We were entertained with a live band which was a little noisy but bearable. He definitely recommended!

Havana Central didn't deliver on the Cuban feel for food or atmosphere. The restaurant was noisy and crowded, so it was difficult to appreciate the music. I was there on President Day weekend so perhaps the restaurant was busier than normal. The food portions were large but mostly filled with rice. The food lacked the authentic flavor and spices I was looking for.

Pre-theater dinner on a Sunday night. Had read mixed reviews, so we were pleasantly surprised when almost everything was great! Our waiter was friendly and informative, as well as great with food allergies. Cocktails were fabulous! Tables are dangerously close together, but we were luckily seated next to friendly patrons. Food did not disappoint! The live music that began playing was SO LOUD!! We couldn’t carry on a conversation.

Our family of four dined before a show on President’s Day weekend. I could sum it up by simply saying that we bailed out after appetizers and hit the Chick-fil-A down the block instead. My wife’s one sentence review was “This restaurant does for Cuban food what the Olive Garden does for Italian”. I decided to label this place ‘Ciudad de sabor’ in honor of another recently departed Times Square restaurant whose demise was also long overdue.

The specifics - the Maraquitas were thick and stale and served with guacamole (?!). The Chicharrones were overcooked little nuggets that seemed to consist entirely of chicken bones. Drinks were good and service was fine.

It was great to spend valentine's day here with my fiance. The drinks were great, the food was good although I had to send it back because it was cold when it was brought to the table.

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.
