Went during Long Island resturant week. Clean, neat resturant with beautiful decor. We had reservations and were seated promptly. There was a fixed menu for resturant week. It included a appetizer, main course and dessert for a low fixed price of 27.99 - we were informed that the portions wee a little smaller, however when we received our food, there... More

This restaurant has great service, excellent food with beautiful presentation, and wonderful ambiance. Lite Latin music in the background-not overwhelming. The beef empanada was exactly like the ones a personal friend from South America makes.The white sangria was delightful and had absolutely no complaints. A great restaurant for the money.

Food was pretty good. I had paella and the seafood in the paella tasted very fresh and not over cooked. The ceviche was not that great so I wouldn't recommend it. Price is great! For a group of 6 with appetizers, entrees and alcoholic beverages, it totalled around 45 dollars including tax and tips. It has a nice dance club... More

Well if trip one was good, trip two was even better. I do not know how, nut the food tasted wven better the second time. During... More

My girlfriend came up from GA for a visit and I wanted to take her to dinner somewhere nice. I checked Open Table and decided to go to Cafe Havana and I am so happy I did. It had been some years since I'd dined here, outside of work. This restaurant is beautifully appointed, right down to the bathrooms. The... More

From the bar to the food to the service this place is amazing! The portions are outstanding and certainly sharable. Our server was great at making suggestions when asked for them, he was friendly toward the tween we were traveling with, cracked some funny, family friendly jokes. The food was hot, fresh, and had flavors we had not experienced in... More

Please don't show up at Cafe Havana expecting fajita platters, pitchers of margaritas and sombreros hanging on the walls... This restaurant serves some of the most delicious and authentic Latin Caribbean food in a 30 mile radius. They have a fairly diverse menu with some classic Cuban and Puerto Rican dishes. The mofongo is excellent, and the rice & beans... More

We enjoyed our dinner but were a little disappointed with the food. Everything was tasty with adequate portions, and dinner with drinks was not exorbitantly expensive. We especially enjoyed the delicious sauce on the mussels appetizer, but the mussels were tiny and disappointing. We requested the Fire Clams to be medium hot, but they were so hot as to be... More
