I visited Havana Alma de Cuba on October 25th. It was our last day in New York and wanted to make it a memorable ocasion. We decided to try this place out and was an excellent choice. The food was amazing and the service was excellent too. The place is a bit small and can get crowded but the staff... More

We chose this restaurant because our friends had never had Cuban cuisine before and they really loved it. some had the paella and some had beef in plantain bowls with typical Cuban species. everything was very...

This place is everything you want in a Cuban restaurant. In their main room they have live music(it might just be on Friday and Saturday I'm not sure) and the people playing are great! The drinks are great both mixed and wine. And the best part, the food. I'm addicted to the ropa vieja they serve which is served in... More

This unimposing cozy restaurant in theVillage (Christopher Street) area is full of surprises! The hostess igreets with such friendliness and led us through the formal table area to the back of the restaurant where the outdoor garden patio tables are located. We were handed over to the most welcoming major doom waiter. And his staff. The ambience is great with... More

I liked being at this restaurant. Its a cool place with interesting people. We stopped for a (very) quick bite before seeing a show at IRT down the street. The food was average though, weighed-down by a very pretentious waiter.

Food is mediocre at best. Service is poor. As the title suggests - only if you have no other alternative

We were so disappointed when Little Havana closed and were on the lookout for a replacement. This small restaurant fills the bill. It is charming and welcoming with a wait staff that is very helpful and friendly. The food is wonderful and the Sangrias are delicious even if Sangria is a little touristy. Still, it hit the spot. If you... More

We were so disappointed when Little Havana closed but have found another venue in the West Village to satisfy our taste for Cuban food. This is a small restaurant with a really nice staff that is willing to explain the menu and answer questions. I know, I know---Sangria is touristy and Cubans probably don't even drink it but it was... More

Havana offered excellent Cuban cuisine with great service, cozy ambiance and perfect mojitos. The outdoor garden dining added a nice flare, would definitely recommend it and would return. Very reasonably priced.

Great dinner on Saturday night. Excellent service. Appetizers, main course and dessert were fantastic. One of the best Cuban dinners I've ever had, either in NYC, Chicago, or Miami. Looking forward to coming back.
