I've visited this restaurant a few times this year for lunch with a colleague and each time the food has been great and the service fast and friendly. It's a little close quarters at the bar, but the happy hour deals look really good so we'll be bringing the rest of the office here soon!

My girlfriends and I were on a Christmas trip in NYC and we tried Havna NY. The sevice was good, but the Cuban food was not authentic. The rice looked orange instead of yellow.

From the moment we entered the staff was welcoming, accommodating and attentive. The wait staff stayed on top of everything and made great recommendations. The food was of high quality and scrumptious. One of the highlights of this NYC visit.

We used to live in this place when it was across the street, but this was our first visit since it reopened in its new location. They'd just gotten their liquor license that day and were still stocking the bar, so my friend couldn't get her choice of cocktail accommodated. But the regular mojitos were on point. We got there...

As with a lot of restaurants in NYC it is difficult to tell what its like from the outside. Inside its charming and lively (but not too loud) with Cuban music playing lightly in the background. My wife and I have never had Cuban food before so were unsure on what to order. Our waiter was very helpful and knowledgeable... More

This Cuban is in a very modern style. The food tasted very well and so did the cocktails. The service can be somewhat better.

Just wandered in on a whim. Food and service superb. Went back a second time even though they did not, at that time, have a liquor license (you can bring your own).

Really good and authentic Cuban food in the heart of the city. Can't go wrong with the Cuban sandwiches; always a popular favorite and very fair prices.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
