Cuban
Cuba is located in a historic street in the Greenwich Village reminiscence of any street in Old Havana. It exudes the aroma and flavor of an authentic Cuban restaurant. The romantic milieu of Cuba effortlessly transports you from Manhattan to Cuba. The rhythmic palpitations of salsa, son Cubano, and the extraordinary sense of exotic dishes permeate the air. For years, Cuba Restaurant has been capturing the spirit of Old Havana with authentic
cuisine, strong signature mojitos, and the team behind Cuba, including Executive Chef Mario Garcia. As a result, Cuba restaurant is like a family, their loyalty and satisfaction directly translating to the guest experience, creating
an atmosphere of fun, friendliness and all-around Cuban hospitality that is unparalleled. Americans have fallen in love with Latin food, music, and culture. Cuba has them all under one roof, offering a singular and charming escape to its own Little Havana on Thompson Street.

    The service and food were very good. The whole staff was very friendly. Menu prices were reasonable. I sat downstairs which is much quieter than upstairs. We couldn’t sit outside because of the heat.

    The food has always been consistently delicious. The server recommended a few things and the company I was with said they were the best oxtails he ever had. And the sorbet for dessert is a perfect contrast to the meat.

    Visiting New York from Detroit. Found this gem on open table. Super cute inside decor (I wanted to sit outside because seating out there was also super cute but it was too hot). Ordered a mojito off happy hour - yum and strong. Then we got the ceviche which was good (the calamari was a bit chewy) and the beef empanadas I would give them a 8/10. We also got the Ropa Vieja which I would say was a 9/10. I would recommend giving it a try.

    Food was great. Big fan of their empanadas. Music can be a little loud when they have live music but it makes you want to dance. Good atmosphere. The front seemed a bit small but there is additional seating downstairs and there is a room behind the bar for a large dining party which is nice. I would definitely eat here again.

    Used to go to their defunct other location (Havana Alma de Cuba) regularly. This location lacks some of the charm, but the food is on point, as is their excellent red sangria. Our favorite Cuban food in Manhattan.

    The food was blend and was not authentic Cuban Food, maybe Colombian food but not Cuban. It was the worse Cuban food I have had in my life! The price way to high for the quality!

    The salmon was wonderful. My dining companion ordered it. I had the oxtails, which were good, but I wish I'd ordered the salmon. Unfortunately, I was so excited to see my dining companion that I forgot to mention my reservation until we were having dessert. At that point the waiter told me that the reservation could not be accepted. Nevertheless, it was a delicious dining experience and I will recommend Cuba.

    Ceviche and empanada starters were delicious. Ceviche so fresh with just the right amount of heat. We had the beef and the cheese/spinach empanadas. Beef was good but cheese was great. Of the entrees, shredded beef was very good and spicy (we are eating leftovers in tortillas tonight), but the real star was the oxtail. The sauce on that was surprisingly delicate yet full of flavor. With the rice, omg. My Paloma was yummy too. I might have to visit the bar again before I leave town. Live music was very good if just a little loud.

    It was our first time at Cuba. The atmosphere in this little gem was vibrant, drinks were great, food was delicious, and service was impeccable. My only complaint is they sat us in a tiny table, literally wedged against the window and the reception desk. I ended up in the seat that faced the reception desk, and my wife faced the bar. It was awkward and not something that I would tolerate on a return visit!

    Everything was excellent! Food was delicious, exceeded our expectations. Service was also great! Will definitely return when in town again! We had the passion fruit sangrias, mixed ceviche, ropa vieja, and the churrasco. Everything was delicious! We kept joking that they must have had someone’s grandma cooking in the kitchens because of how tasty the food was! ❤️

    Went here early 5:00 on a Sunday afternoon so it was not very full. But would recommend to always make a reservation because it can get quite busy. Have eaten here before & the food is always very tasty as are the Mojitos. The service is good and I have never had to wait very long for my order to be taken or for the food to arrive. If your in the area I would recommend this place & afterwards you can people watch at Washington Square Park. Highly recommend.

    We used to love Cuba and would frequent it prior to the pandemic. The food used to be so rich and full of flavor. This is our first time returning to Cuba since 2019, the mojitos were still on point, but unfortunately, the food was bland and generic. We were truly disappointed as we looked forward to returning back to our pre-pandemic habits. The staff were all friendly and accomodating, restaurant was clean, drinks were good, but food was eh. Honestly, it tasted like something we could have made at home. Hopefully as business continues to pick up, this changes.
